Breaking New: 10255 Assembly Square – The Largest Modular yet!

10255-assembly-square-4Today the LEGO Group announced 10255 Assembly Square as the next in the Creator Modular building line. The set has been seen in rumors and leaked photos over the last couple of weeks, but now LEGO has released 8 images to show us where our hard-earned money will be going shortly.

“Celebrate ten years of Modular Building with the 10255 Assembly Square! Coming in at 4,002 pieces and developed to celebrate ten years of LEGO® Modular Buildings it features a wealth of unsurpassed, intricate details and hidden surprises, from a bakery to a photo studio!”

10255-tile-closeupThere’s a number of nice elements to this set including what looks like 9 minifigures including the new LEGO baby that we saw in the 60134 set – Fun In The Park. There are some great angled tiles in the sidewalk that add to the details. Both the light and dark versions are there near the person’s feet.

In one photo, walking along behind our purple person (who looks like Matt Smith to me) is the dentist carrying a box of LEGO! Brickset.com has an article pointing out all of the new parts, and joking that the folks over at New Elementary are going to have heart palpitations. Frankly, it may be a lot for them to cover, but I know many builders will be pretty damned excited too!
