LEGO TO GO INTO THE REAL ESTATE MARKET
The world-famous Danish Company known for its toys and highly sophisticated interlockable brick systems took the plunge into the real estate market with a new type of prefabricated house targeted to AFOLs (acronym for ‘adult fan of LEGO’).
The standard model in red, is three-storey connected by elegant stairs, features wooden floors, large windows across the whole rear of the house, a amazing Wurlitzer Jukebox, and even a glass display sitting in between the ground and 1st floor hosting a UCS Millenium Falcon in it (included in the price).
Now on the layout of the various floors:
Ground floor will have a Brick Room, where you can sort your bricks, a work bench with a brick separator, a personal computer and some cupboards to store your parts.
First floor will have a lovely living room with crystal displays, to showcase your favourite sets and custom creations to AFOL friends while listening music playing in the Jukebox.
Second floor will have a big table to host a city diorama (included in each house, but you can customize to your liking) and practise before taking your stuff to events.
A manhole will also lead you to the attic to blow the cobwebs away and, who knows, sport a new IDEAS creation!
This whole house will be just 1590 pieces including furniture!
You may ask yourselves: ‘No bathroom? A bed? Kitchen?’ Nothing to worry about, a hardcore AFOL doesn’t need any of these and even so there will be some other modular building next to this one where you would seek help.
You can’t let it go!
As we said, the model will be of 1590 pieces. Just because you can’t split it like conventional modular buildings, it will have hinges to open the rear all in one piece.
All floor can be pulled out to ease playability and to make changes to the layout.
This innovative modular building fits to any other existing LEGO products, and gives a touch of color to your city theme.
Just try now to visualize it the real word, or your city. Would it be awesome, don’t you think? How colourful any city would be, or more beautiful? I would personally buy it, if only LEGO would produce it. Who ever dream of a place where you could express your passion for bricks to the best?
For now, it’s only possible to vote for this project, who knows where the future leads..
My first proposition of the model is red, a real classic color for LEGO.
On a unrelated side note, the story behind my nickname. ‘VedoSoloLEGO’ means ‘I see only LEGOs’ in Italian, my native language. Reason behind that is anything i look at I try to picture it in brick shape.
I hope you enjoy it.
