The new shop on the block!

[December 6th, 2019] Bring a novel new building to your LEGO brick town with the LEGO Creator Expert Bookshop. The latest addition to the Modular Buildings series, this three-story bookshop and adjoining townhouse is crammed full of fun features and has all the character of a quaint European town. 

The 2,504-piece build features a three-story bookshop and adjoining modular town house building, which are full of surprising details including a reading nook – where any one of the five LEGO minifigures included in the set can settle down to read ‘Moby Brick’ (or any other book) in the peace and quiet of the detailed bookshop. 

This set is packed full of unexpected features such as the toy plane stuck in the branches of the autumnal birch tree outside the house and a pet chameleon hiding in the bedroom of the house – all of which are sure to delight budding builders as they create their own bookshop.

 

 

The modular design allows the two buildings to be configured in a number of ways, giving LEGO brick fans flexibility when they display the model or integrate it into their own town of other LEGO Creator Expert Modular Buildings. 

The set is inspired by the houses of Amsterdam and the dollhouses that were built by the Mother of the set’s designer, Wes Talbott when he was growing up. The set features an adjoining townhouse with individual rooms for each of the five LEGO minifigures to relax in, when they’re not exploring the bookstore itself. 

Measuring over 11” (29cm) high, 9” (25cm) wide and 9” (25cm) deep, this buildable model makes for an impressive display piece on its own or as part of a larger Modular Buildings series street scene. This advanced set offers a challenging and rewarding build experience whether building alone or sharing the experience with a friend. 

The LEGO Creator Expert Modular Buildings series is a premium collection of advanced, interconnecting buildings featuring authentic designs from around the world.
