LEGO Creator Downtown Diner (10260) Official Reveal

LEGO Creator Downtown Diner 10260

There have been a couple of images of the next LEGO Creator modular floating around recently and I’m finally able to share the official reveal!

The LEGO Creator Downtown Diner is the first modular that is done in an “art-deco” style which is a departure from the previous models as those were mainly European styled architecture.

It consists 2,480 piece which makes it the third largest modular ever released after the LEGO Creator Assembly Square (10255) and Town Hall (10224).

The modular is packed with an American diner on the first floor, a gym with boxing ring on the second floor and recording studio on the third. It also comes with a pink 1950’s Cadillac convertible to boot.

One notable difference between this modular and the ones before it are the minifigure heads. For the past ten years, the minifigure heads were all generic ones whereas now, we have the ones with the City minifigure expressions. 001---minifigures

This is also the first set after LEGO lead designer Jamie Berard moved over to the LEGO Architecture department and while this may be a departure stylistically, I’m intrigued as to what other designs the modular line will tackle next.

The LEGO Creator Downtown Diner will be available on January 1st, 2018 and there will be no VIP early access.

  1. Sir Bricktavius the Third says:

    For someone who doesn’t collect modulars, i have to say this is one set that i am definitely getting.

    The color scheme of pink and green really represents the fashion back in the 70s where the ladies would wear their polka dot dress and dance by the juke box to the tune of Elvis.

    Another thing to highlight would be Lego’s attempt at making the neon “diner” sign, i personally felt that it could have been a lighter shade of pink but then that would defeat the purpose of their attempt at making a neon sign. Perhaps future moc-cers could tryout using trans-pink to maximise the neon effect. But overall i would say that lego did a pretty good job, even the font felt perfect!

    The turquoise green jukebox like design of the modular was a great idea because the bright colors sure bring out some life in the set, they could have stuck with the traditional brown juke box design, but that would have made the modular look really dull.

    The whole idea of having such an old fashion looking diner may seem a little out of place when placed next to the other modulars because of the difference in eras, but i felt that the diner was a good representative of different periods from the past to the present and hopefully the future. If you walk in the cities of America, there would be quite a handful of diners that look like that till this day, hence as old fashion as it may seem felt that this was still a common site in our present time and it doesnt seem out of place at all.

    For something that is so “musically” themed, i felt that the whole gym and boxing ring seemed pretty out of placed. They could have made it a disco theme or perhaps a really small roller skating ring with all the bright colors, that would have really emphasized on bright colors and awesome music.

    Overall, i would say that this is Modular that i’ll definitely get because of the bright colors, the theme of the modular and how it represents something in the past that was so popular! (Well it still is now!)
