Today, at BrickFair, Kevin Hinkle is unveiling the latest modular building in the series 10232 Palace Cinema. This set was leaked weeks ago but we now have official images and other release information. The set will have 2,194 pieces and will cost US $149.99 / CA $199.99 / DE 139,99€ / UK 119.99 £ / DK 1,099.00 DKK. You can buy this set from LEGO Shop@Home beginning March 2013. You can view the full set of pictures in the 10232 Palace Cinema image gallery. They score points for building design, but that limo. Should we expect all cars in the modular building series to be open-top/convertibles? First the fire engine, now this limo. And how about a corner gas station/convenience store already?

Official press release below. I’m sure there’s a video out there somewhere, so I’ll update this post once it surfaces. I’ve skipped the picture gallery, figuring you can just click through to the main flickr set.
