Lego Town Population Boom

Lego Town has continued to grow since my last Lego post. There was a lot of construction just after Christmas. Things have slowed down considerably since then. There has been one new addition though! The Lego Creator Bike and Coffee Shop. Hubby has decided to separate the two buildings in this set because that’s the way it happens to fit on the table best at this moment in time.

Above is the outside of the Bike Shop. You can see the bike in the window. Both buildings are two story, smaller than the regular modular sets. Below is a bird’s eye view of the Bike Shop. It comes with a rooftop BBQ.

The building also opens up so you can see inside. The bottom floor is the shop and above is an apartment with a bed and kitchenette. You get to the apartment from a ladder inside the Bike Shop. I guess the Bike Shop owner must live in the apartment.

Across the street is the Coffee Shop which, in my opinion, was long overdue. How can a town not have a coffee shop?! Like the Bike Shop, it’s two story and opens so you can see the inside.

The Coffee Shop has indoor and outdoor seating. It even has an ATM machine on the side there. Hubby has a cop outside the shop enjoying his java. The cop came from his Lego advent calendar I think. The apartment upstairs has a nice balcony and a private entrance out back (unlike the Bike Shop).

The shop serves cupcakes (the pink things), pie and coffee. Hubby gave Emo Chick from Series 12 the job of manning the cash.

Since this set was bought from the official Lego Store, at the beginning of the month, Hubby got freebies! A flower cart and a Lego friends golf thing. He built the flower cart and is saving Lego Friends for Ebay.

The Lego Town population has also been booming lately. So much so that construction can’t keep up and many minifigs have been left homeless! Luckily, the Lego Minifigure Series characters come with stands, so they’ve been converted into statues for the time being. Hubby decided he wanted to start collecting the Series minifigs. For those of you who don’t know, they all come packaged like this.

So you have no idea what you are getting. There is a new set every year and the previous year becomes retired (hard to find). He got a few of Series 12 (last year) before they all sold out, now he is on to Series 13. Last week, we were in an art supply store getting stuff I needed to keep on drawing and art journaling when he stumbled across a collection of Series 12 packages. Who would have thought you’d find them in an art store?? Obviously not too many people because they haven’t sold out yet. Anyway, I went shopping and left Hubby to feel up the Lego baggies trying to figure out which was which. He did really well. He got all of the ones from Series 12 that he wanted, with no duplicates! Here is his collection of Series minifigs so far.

    Ah Lego… We got Josh a dragon yesterday, mini-figs for me and the kid, and then 2 Nanoblock pouches – one for me and one for her. And thank you for the reminder, I need a post a pic of my new mini-fig. I got the construction worker guy and I put him to work. πŸ˜‰

    I am jealous of your town!
    I got all from the last collection except the rocker and the genie! Go figure…

    I have to wait for pay day to get some more of the current series. Right now I have a unicorn, hotdog, goblin, cyclops, construction guy and the Ming the Merciless looking one. I am not as enamored with this series, minus unicorn and hotdog, as I was with the 12s. Probably a good thing for my wallet!

    Except, i still have to get the Aquaman set LOL

      You missed the rocker?? Aww, I really like him. I’m still on the lookout for the hot dog from this year’s collection.
      The superhero sets are pretty good this year. Hubby came home with the Green Lantern set the other day. I’m sure he plans on getting Aquaman too
