A new line for 2012, Lego Mini Modulars are compact versions of the large, highly detailed and very popular Modular Buildings released by Lego over the last 5 years. The Mini Modulars will be available at the Lego Shop in January 2012 and will be exclusive to VIP Members.
Lego Mini Modulars
The modular buildings are some of the most highly sought after Lego sets, especially by Adult Lego fans and the sets often command very high prices on the secondary market after they have sold out in stores.
Rather than re-release these sets Lego has decided to make miniature versions so collectors can enjoy the details – albeit with a magnifying glass :0)
Set 10230 Mini Modulars will feature the first 5 buildings from the series (Café Corner, Market Street, Green Grocer, Fire Brigade and Grand Emporium) in one kit. Each building measures approximately 2.5″ (6.5 cm) square and the completed “street” model measures 5″ (14.5 cm) tall, 12″ (32 cm) long and 2.5″ (6.5 cm) wide.
The kit utilizes the popular mini building style and comes with 1356 pieces.
As it is available only to Lego VIP Club members it’s a great reason to join up to the rewards points club (and also a great way for Lego to recruit new members).
