I love the Lego modulars, so the announcement of any new release in that range immediately gets me excited. That’s why I was pleased to see that this week saw the reveal of set 10255 Assembly Square, a 4002 piece set which is out on January 1st 2017. This giant modular is two baseplates wide, and will of course connect with all the existing modulars to help you build out your city streets. A modular building over 4000 pieces? Sold!
There’s so many features in this one, I’m just going to give you the bullets from the Lego press release…
