During the LEGO Black Friday Showcase on Youtube, which was a marathon in itself, LEGO announced their next modular building LEGO Police Station (10278)!

The main focus on this modular is of course the Police Station which is a typical New York style precinct, situated between a newsstand and a Donut shop of all places.

The three story building will include a holding cell, detective’s office, and reception area. The small story behind it all is that the thief has been caught stealing donuts and is being chased by Police officers. Once caught they’ll arrest him put him in jail!

The set comes complete with five Minifigures:

  • Two Police officers
  • One police chief
  • Donut shop owner
  • Thief (who also appears to own the newstand)

It has quite a respectable piece count of 2,923, and can be split into three separate stories, four including the roof.

 

RRP is also not too bad for the part count and size of the build coming in at £169.99 – €179.99 – $199.99


I am a big LEGO Modular fan and finally seeing what LEGO had up their sleeve is stunning, the architecture, the colour scheme, and the surrounding buildings are all so well designed and will fit into the Cityscape with ease!

I’m all for emergency service modulars and wish there were more to choose from. I’d really like to see LEGO expand of this and produce a fully standalone Hospital!

What do you make of this new Police Station Modular and will you be purchasing it on day one? Let us know in the comments below. Thank you!

THREE-FLOOR POLICE STATION JOINS THE LEGO® MODULAR BUILDINGS COLLECTION

Date: 27th November 2020

The LEGO Group has announced an amazingly detailed new addition to its Modular Buildings Collection with the unveiling of the LEGO Police Station.

Hiding a wealth of features behind its impressive facade, the eye-catching new model consists of three floors and a modular structure that allows LEGO fans to fully explore the intricate interiors and increase the building’s height.

Designed as a centrepiece to a bustling LEGO neighbourhood, the LEGO Police Station also comes complete with a donut shop brimming with sweet treats and a newspaper kiosk, as well as five minifigures including a 1940s-inspired police officer for ample storytelling possibilities.

Adding further architectural interest, the outside is decorated with brightly coloured awnings and ornate cornicing. The LEGO Police Station is fully compatible with other products from the LEGO Modular Buildings Collection and makes a striking display piece alongside these, as well as on its own.

The feature-packed floors of the LEGO Police Station are filled with secret surprises and delights for true-crime fans. On building the set, it soon becomes apparent that a mystery donut thief is on the loose. Naturally, the LEGO Police Station is fully equipped to tackle even the most sugary-sweet of crimes, with an evidence locker, jail cell, interrogation room and case board with red lines connecting all the clues.

Inside, all levels are connected by a grand staircase and are stocked with uniquely designed pieces including a billboard, telephone and a typewriter. The ultimate Easter Eggs and clues to solving the mystery of the Donut thief come in the form of a hidden escape route beneath the jail cell and a secret access route to the Donut shop.

Chris McVeigh designer at the LEGO Group commented: “We’ve had a lot of fun designing the LEGO Police Station. An architectural gem and treasure trove of quirky features, it’s the perfect place to start building your LEGO streetscape, or a brilliant addition to an existing one.”

Totalling 2,923 pieces, the LEGO Police Station is the latest addition to the LEGO Modular Buildings Collection which also includes the Bookshop, Assembly Square and Corner Garage. The LEGO Police Station will be available to purchase at LEGO.com and from LEGO Retail Stores from January 1st 2021.
