After a few weeks of rumors and speculation regarding a leaked image of what could be 2018’s first LEGO Creator Modular, we now have the official word from LEGO on what this set is going to be. Announced via social media channels and at shop.LEGO.com, the LEGO Creator Downtown Diner (10260) will be available starting January 1, 2018.
The set is absolutely gorgeous with its 1950s downtown American diner styling that gives off a nostalgic vibe. I particularly like the standout Diner signage, along with the pink convertible. Similar to the LEGO Batman Movie The Joker Manor (70922), the LEGO Creator Downtown Diner will not have an early VIP access, but instead will be available for all beginning January 1 across all LEGO brand stores and at shop.LEGO.com. The set comes in at 2,480 pieces and features six minifigures, retailing for $169.99. Here’s the official product description along with a huge stash of crisp images.
