10224 Town Hall Revealed

10224 Town Hall - 1


I love me some modular buildings. 10224 Town Hall, though, takes the cake. The largest modular building set to date, it weighs in at 2,766 pieces and will set you back $199 USD. It has some pretty impressive details such as brick-built columns that are NOT made of the 2x2 round bricks with grille, the elevator, and the skylights. Start budgeting your pennies now, this set will be available starting March 2012.

More pics below, press release after that.

This classic 3-storey town hall building is the latest addition to the LEGO® Modular Buildings series.

Is it just me, or do none of the picture links work?

have to admit, I'm seriously considering these modular sets after buying and building the micro one earlier in the year...sad thing is that the previous sets in this series are now ridiculous amounts of money on eBay!!

Why is this video marked as "private"? I would like to watch it.

I started stockpiling these for my 6-month old daughter last summer. I bought the Fire Brigade the day she was born as it was the oldest one still available. I then reluctantly spent $400 getting the Green Grocer off eBay, and then maybe $250 buying all the parts for the Cafe Corner from Lego/Bricklink. I had to change the color scheme for the Cafe Corner in places due to availability of bricks, but it looks awesome (and is the only one I've built) so you may want to consider that option. Hopefully spending over the odds on the first couple will be worth it when I have an entire street of modular buildings by the time she's old enough to appreciate them. I figure the more buildings they release, the more you're gonna want the earlier ones, and the price will only go up. Well... that's how I justified it to myself. I don't consider the Market Place to be a "true" modular building so no plans to try and get/build that one.

I don't think you can furnish something eloquently.

It looks to me like it's furnished on the orders of some sort of power mad dictator trying to take over the world.

Two of the three floors are dedicated to the so-called Mayor including a large model globe, which is of course, useless in small town decision making but key to world domination. Apparently this one tyrant micromanages all the decisions for the whole town/city from one of his two lavish thrones, and appears from time to time on his platform to conduct 1984 style rallies. The whole apparatus is funded by ransom/bribery payments collected at the front counter from foreign countries he has threatened with the orbital space laser he controls using communication gear hidden in the clock tower.

There's no other logical explanation for what we see inside there.

I dig the fact that Lego keeps coming out with new and unique designs for this line. It makes it easier to part with the coin on these knowing that Lego keeps upping the ante. Kudos to the modular building designers.

The only thing I can't get past, is it just me or does the mayor minifig look vaguely familiar?

Why, they're practically identical.

I am at least a little disappointed that the year at the top does not say 1885. A little bit of cable and a LEGO DeLorean later, and we'd be in business. Because, looking at that clock, I can only think of trying to get the top struck by lightning...
If the above post didn't offend you, you're probably reading it wrong.
