Last year around this time, The LEGO Group announced my absolute favorite set of 2018. And they are doing it again. The corner garage unveiled.  The Corner Garage The new Creator Expert 10264 Corner Garage is the natural extension of the Downtown Diner. No doubt,  I will be queuing at my local LEGO store here…

Seeing this and instantly getting an earworm of "Born in the 50's" by Police! Once again such lovely details in this build. If only for the "Octan gas" sign...this is already sold to me!

I'm not convinced and I guess I won't before getting it myself. The interior is plain and boring compared to other recent modulars, and even the outside doesn't make me particularly excited. That said I will eventually get it anyway because my city layout needs a corner building.

Well, it is of course very individual but I am a bigger lover of the expert modulars and I will just buy every set that comes out (I am still regretting that I waited and waited for the town hall and now it is gone). 

I am not gonna retrofit all of them in my little city, but net new I will for sure buy. If I compare it with Diners, than Diners was maybe the better set. I like this one better as Assembly Square from the outside look (I have to admit I dont spent soo much time inside the builds, I should spent more time) and I did not like the bank until I build it and fell in love with the laundrette.

I am sure this will be awesome. 
I am convinced.
I am a believer.

I don't care about the gas station and the rest feels a bit like I already have most of it somewhere... So I'll save some money this time :)

Well, there is a lot of new stuff coming at the beginning of 2019 so good to focus on what really matters for you. Couldn't agree more. 

I think the new LEGO Movie series will be very interesting as well.

As a newbie in the Lego universe, I'm just saying woooooo with sparkling eyes :D I love the 50's look and the main picture with the four building is really nice!
But I will contain myself for the moment, I have other projects, involving skeletons.
One question : WHERE do you put/store/display all your lego sets like this one? Do you have a dedicated room?

Our house is kind of filled everywhere with these little bricks. 
Now, the modular houses do get a special place, here is one wall in our library. 

By the weekend the house should be cleaned a little bit more and maybe I add a few more, but here they are an integral part of the living area.

We recently reconstructed our flat and had the furniture made to fit, so now I have special cabinets to display my Lego :D Ninjago City has a special shelf for itself, the rest is kind of organized, but as my collection grows (these photos were taken in summer), I have to reorganize :D Now I have new Harry Potter sets on one of the shelves instead of half my collection of Star Wars sets, which are hidden in a different cabinet. Also I acquired some architecture sets, which are now on display... I understand that this is not sustainable, but I don't know how to solve this problem :D

I'm with you! At this point every modular building that comes out is a must buy for me. I'm excited for this one, although I was a little disappointed by the higher price.
