Looking for a nice addition to your LEGO brick town this coming new year? Well, look no more, because LEGO has just unveiled a fancy bookshop set that would surely add a splash of European flair to your existing collection.
Officially called LEGO Creator Expert Bookshop, the 2,504-piece build features a three-story bookshop and adjoining modular town house building, which are full of exciting details, including a display window, bookshelves, a reading nook, and individual rooms for each of the five LEGO minifigures included within the set.
Designed by Wes Alan Talbott, a Design Master at LEGO, the set is inspired by the houses of Amsterdam and the dollhouses that were built by his mother out of wood and LEGO bricks when he was growing up. The set’s minifigures are also based on Talbott’s parents who are both creative makers. Additionally, the town house address, 107, is the LEGO number for the teal color the house is made out of, and is a color Talbott helped bring to the LEGO color palette.
The bookshop set is part of LEGO’s Modular Buildings series, an ever-growing collection of interconnecting model toy buildings that can be combined with one another to create amazing street scenes that builders and collectors love to own and display.
With a modular design, the bookshop set allows the bookshop itself and the town house to be configured in a number of ways, giving builders flexibility when they integrate it into their existing LEGO Creator Expert Modular Building sets. Measuring over 11 inches high, 9 inches wide, and 9 inches deep, the bookshop set also makes an impressive display piece even on its own.
Priced at $179.99, the LEGO Creator Expert Bookshop will be available directly from LEGO.com and LEGO Retail stores starting January 1st, 2020.
