Review: 10270 Creator Expert Bookshop

On January 1st LEGO officially released the latest modular building – 10270 Bookshop. Today I will be having a look at this beautiful addition to the modular collection.

Despite only being a few months old the Bookshop feels like it belongs to a different era. Enter a world where you can casually browse a bookstore without worrying about social distancing and how many people can fit inside based on how many square metres it is.

Like 10218 Pet Shop before it the Bookshop is a split modular, meaning that you get two smaller buildings rather than the single 32×32 build. I really like split modulars as they give you a lot of flexibility in your modular layout, assuming of course that you’ve already got a few of them.

LEGO Announces The 2020 Modular – 10270 Bookshop

Every year in early December LEGO announced the new entry to the modular building line. Today we have the official details of the 2020 modular.

Introducing 10270 Bookshop

This set features 2504 parts and 5 minifigures. The bookstore is a return to the split modular with the build containing two distinct buildings – there is the bookstore as well as a really cute apartment.

Both builds look fantastic and I think they are a good return to something more grounded after the garage and diner of previous years.

LEGO was kind enough to send me a copy of this set to review but it only arrived late today. I’ll have a detailed review for you before this set is released for sale on January 1st 2020. No Australian price as yet. Australian RRP is $249.99.
