Our next modular building – the LEGO Creator Downtown Diner (10260) – together with more than 120 news sets are now available at LEGO shop@Home. For those of you who are patiently waiting for the Diner to go live both online and in LEGO brand stores since it was announced last November, then your patience has definitely been rewarded.
Consisting of 2,480 pieces, the LEGO Creator Downtown Diner (10260) is the 13th advanced modular building set that comes in the series since 2007. It features a 1950s diner with a pink and teal ‘Streamline Moderne’ styling, together with a gym, recording studio and a pink convertible car. It has six minifigures and retails exclusively at all LEGO stores and at shop.LEGO.com for $169.99. Now that leaves us with only a hotel which is still yet to be included in the modular series. Is set designer Mike Psiaki hinting at what’s next as he drops the question in the Downtown Diner Designer Video? That is really something to look forward to.
Other notable 2018 sets that you might be interested to look at is the latest series of LEGO Star Wars and DC BrickHeadz including Rey (41602) and Kylo Ren (41603), Flash (41598), Wonder Woman (41599), Aquaman (41600) and Cyborg (41601). Each of this collectible retails for $9.99 each, and are part of the first wave of LEGO BrickHeadz for 2018, with a second wave to be released sometime in April.
Also probably included in your list of must-haves is the LEGO Batman Movie Collectible Minifigures Series 2, mostly highlighting some of the DC superheroes and baddies in the film. Each blind bag retails for $3.99, and I’m hoping to land on my personal favorites – Tropical Joker and Swimming Pool Batman.
Another one that you might be interested in is the LEGO City Mining Experts Site (60188) set which comes in at 883 pieces and featuring the latest train track element first used in the LEGO Batman Movie Joker Manor (70922). The Mining Experts Site (60188) retails for $99.99 and comes with 6 minifigures and a new bear element. This and the rest of the 2018 LEGO City Mining sets are now available across all LEGO stores and online.
Finally, LEGO Technic fans will be glad to hear that the exquisitely beautiful Mack Anthem (42078) is now up and listed at shop.LEGO.com. Retailing at $179.99, this huge 2-in-1 set comes in at 2,595 pieces, and also features a unique Mack bulldog hood ornament for that detailed replica of the iconic Mack LR garbage truck.
These and a lot more are now available at all LEGO stores, so be sure to drop by your nearest LEGO store and see what you can find, especially if you still have some holiday cash to spend. I know Brian is looking forward to building his LEGO Downtown Diner so perhaps a review is in the works. Stay tuned!
