Modular Post Office MOC

Recommended Posts

Sweet!  This has me curious though, where did the guy trying to get his workhorse tractor promoted for IDEAS get the truck in this image?  Looks very similar, too similar...

I like it. Much more appealing to me than Downtown Diner. Although at 2,900 pieces I'd be surprised if there's not another bump in MSRP.

Yeah, it´s pretty early for a 2019 leak too but that  box artwork is one hell of a job if it is a fake.

Im not buying this yet. Seems too rendered and the truck from the tractor is almost identical. This smells fishy.

Side Panel on the front doesn't show dimensions or the exploded view.

By our very own Bricked1980....

Those who are on Eurobricks will have seen his modular work before   Brick Square Post Office and also the classic The Queen Brickoria Pub 

All excellent stuff..

Those are awesome!  Kind of wish they were sets.  The OP totally reminded me of a smaller scale Assembly Square.

Just wanted to confirm that the post office modular is indeed just my MOC building "Brick Square Post Office". That box art shot is just something I knocked together in photoshop yesterday, but I apologise if it has tricked anyone, that definitely wasn't my intention.

When I build my own modulars I always try and present them using similar backgrounds and camera angles to help them appear similar to official modulars. A couple of examples below...

I created the box art shot to share on my instagram. I have posted many shots of my Post Office on there before and only have a small following so I assumed that people would realise it was just another fancy way of presenting my model. Perhaps it was a step too far though and I deleted the picture as soon as I heard that rumors had started to circulate about it. It had only been online for a few hours.

Pieces on top seem to match Downtown Diner.

You are right. The image is basically just the Downtown Dinner box with my model photoshopped on to it.

Yes the mail van in the shot with my Steam Engine is the same one from the Post Office. Here is another picture with them all together.

Once again, sorry folks if that picture tricked anyone.

It was a fair cop but I don´t know how well that will go down with TLG regarding possible IDEAS approval, what with using their branding and all.

I've never used any Lego logos or branding on any of the promotional stuff for my Ideas model.

you mean like "in person"? of course, nowhere. I just searched for a new Creator set using Google and this picture got spitted out. And there was certainly nothing on that page regarding that MOC creation.
