About this deal

And much like Cafe Corner (and even Green Grocer, to some extent), the window designs suffer from the more limited parts palette of that time — which really strengthens my appreciation for the modern system of LEGO window and door frames. Some rarer and more unique, fun parts include the dark grey door frames, the green wig pieces that sub in for lettuces in the market, some other fruit pieces, a lion head “gargoyle” bit, an owl, and some nice “iron” gates.

figured this would be a thread about somebody who struck gold at a yard sale or was doing retro reviews. Although it is branded as a Factory set by LEGO we also consider this to be part of the Creator Expert theme of Modular Building sets. I have been unable to find out exactly how he came to be involved, but an interview with him in BrickJournal issue 8 provides information on how it was designed in conjunction with the Creator team shortly after Jamie Berard had finished Café Corner, and that it was intended to 'showcase a fan design, to promote the design-it-yourself vision of LEGO Factory'. aspx) which offered the first written description of the Modular Buildings standards, including the somewhat underappreciated VERTICAL expansion possibilities.There's not much to suggest 'market' other than a couple of crates of fruit and veg (including an early example of nice parts usage in a set: a green Exo-Force hair piece as a cabbage) and a croissant sign hanging outside the house. When I bought 10182 Cafe Corner in 2008, I had no idea how much it would cost in a few or a dozen years. Another interesting detail not mentioned in the review is that since Erik Brok felt some builders may not care for the very Dutch-inspired stepped gable roof, he designed the set so the sloped roof could be rotated to face the street for an "international style" building, or swapped with the flat roof of the market/arcade for a more American-style building. LEGO ®, the LEGO logo, the Minifigure, and the Brick and Knob configurations are trademarks of the LEGO Group of Companies.

The interior is empty, save for a staircase that goes all the way from the crawl space up to the top floor. I’ve always loved the front steps, but thought the roof line was disappointing even when I first built it, not in comparison to anything else.The palette of bricks and colors was limited to whatever was available in LDD/Pick a Brick at the time, and those white hoses are still in the same default position and flexed angle as when you dragged them into the design space. Sometimes I can figure it out and come out well, other times I am left scratching my head wondering what other people are seeing that I am not.

One could easily populate the empty market with some stalls of one’s own building and design, though two big crates of fruit are provided to get you started. There are plenty of Modular Building"rules" that fans have imagined there to be over the course of the series that have been either "violated" on individual occasions or abandoned entirely for all buildings going forward.

As you can see on the back of the box, we get some additional photos as well as quite a bit of text and descriptions.

It doesn’t make much of a difference either way, you could say that using two of the same makes for a more unified look. These also help break up the construction process a bit, as otherwise you are mostly building a square, to go on top of another square, etc. It added up to a fraction of the costs of an original new CC, but of course it only looks similar and isn't completely accurate. io model of this set that I made as well, I swapped a handful of the expensive parts and made some minor aesthetic changes as well, it'll likely take a couple of days until the file is available for download so anyone who wants to modify it further or take a better look in the program feel free to do so. But yes, Market Street follows both those rules just as well as any of the others in the collection, and was always meant to be a part of the series as a whole.
