I guess most fans have heard about these 2 upcoming sets for some time now (especially for those who were following the adventures of the one lucky fan who got to build the upcoming modular set weeks ago…), but it’s always nice to have good quality press release pics to salivate over.
I’ll leave you to read the official press release and see the other official pics here:
I am somewhat sad to finally see the official measurements for the Town Hall. It’s 50cm high! Which means… my display shelves are not high enough to accommodate the latest modular set. And since my customized shelves cannot be modified (they are bolted to the wall! wahhhhh), I guess I’ll just have to modify the set when I finally get it.
For the benefit of those of you who will be getting customized display shelves, here are the heights of the modular buildings released so far, from the shortest to the tallest…
- 10218 Pet Shop: 10.5″ (26.5cm)
- 10190 Market Street: 13″” (33 cm)
- 10197 Fire Brigade: 14″ (35 cm)
- 10185 Green Grocer: 14″ (35cm)
- 10182 Cafe Corner: 14″ (36 cm)
- 10211 Grand Emporium: 15″ (38 cm)
- 10224 Town Hall: 20” (50 cm)
Bases are 10″ (25.5) x 10″ (25.5) cm… and do leave space for future expansion of course.
IMO the pic looks weird with the Pet Shop being so much shorter… the Fire Brigade isn’t pictured, which probably means imminent EOL (end of life).
And enjoy the (original) video, and the rare lady designer being featured. 🙂
UPDATE: In case TLG comes yanking this video as well, here are the screenshots from FBTB that has everyone aflutter about the cute 10225 R2-D2 and possibly 10228 Haunted House.
