LEGO has announced and revealed their new Creator Expert Modular building, and it is a beautiful bookshop and townhouse combo.

LEGO Bookshop 10270 Overview

So, what’s the breakdown? Well, the new LEGO bookshop modular will contain 2504 pieces, is rated 16+ and measures over 11” (29cm) high, 9” (25cm) wide and 9” (25cm) deep.

This would be a great standalone piece, for book-lovers, and bookshop-owners (or wannabe owners) alike. In fact I showed it to my friend, and fellow blogger over at Ink Blot Book Blog, and she already wants one.

I think it would be an ideal, and rather cute, book-end. Don’t you? I already used my Detective’s office as a kind of bookend at one point.

What makes this set interesting compared to other modular buildings from LEGO, is the fact that both of the smaller buildings, the bookshop and the townhouse are independently modular.

Both being modular means you can have either the bookshop or the townhouse on the left or right, and I don’t see any reason they can’t be separated entirely. So you could therefore have one on each side of an existing modular building. Or on at each end of the street if you are lucky enough to have a street of modular LEGO buildings 😉

Basically, what I’m saying is, you are actually getting two smaller modular buildings for the price of one. And especially for Book-lovers, the bookshop is a nice addition to the modular buildings that LEGO offer.

The fact you can include them in any way you like, means it should be pretty easy to fit them into your current modular layout.

And on that note, I think my wallet left, and is shopping at The LEGO store 😉
