After unveiling its next modular building set, LEGO has now released its LEGO Creator Expert Bookshop (10270) designer video. In this 5-minute video, LEGO Design Master Wes Talbott and LEGO Senior Graphic Designer Tore Harmark -Alexandersen give us a walkthrough on the fine details of this next LEGO modular set. Watch this.
One of the interesting features of this latest modular is that it comes as a sort of a 2-in-1 set: the Bookshop itself, and its adjacent apartment can be split apart either as standalone 3-story brick structures or as a single unit. An extra set can be used to add more floors if you wish to have a taller build.
Similar to previous LEGO sets of its genre, it kind of tells a story of the minifig occupants included with the set. Wes admits that he took his design inspiration from his parents and how he recalls his father to be a sort of local hero. These minifigures come with recolored elements such as the lady’s wig that now comes in black and the little boy’s scarf that is now available in green.
Speaking about recolored elements, the LEGO Creator Expert Bookshop (10270) comes with a handful of these most noticeable are the new plant and animal elements – the Dark Azure bird and the Dark Turquoise chameleon to be exact. For a complete list of all the new, recolored pieces included in this set, it will be helpful to visit New Elementary’s comprehensive review of the Bookshop. As an added treat, it was revealed that all the decorated pieces that come with this new modular are all printed. LEGO opted to throw away the sticker sheet this time.
The LEGO Creator Expert Bookshop (10270) is slated to arrive at all LEGO brand stores and at LEGO Shop@Home on January 1st, 2020. It comes in at 2,504 pieces with five minifigure characters and will retail for $179.99 USD.
