LEGO Creator Downtown Diner (10260) Back on Backorder Status

LEGO is now accepting backorders for the LEGO Creator Downtown Diner (10260) and you can now place orders for it again. It has been listed as temporarily out of stock for a good while but it is stated that the set will ship in 60 days. This is one of the sets that I reported will be retiring at the end of the year. Hopefully LEGO will produce enough to go around before it goes away. You can also use the check store stock to see if there are any available near you.

LEGO Creator Downtown Diner (10260) Review

LEGO Creator Downtown Diner (10260)

As tradition at the beginning of the year, LEGO releases a new modular building and for 2018, we have the LEGO Creator Downtown Diner (10260). I’ve read many comments saying that it is a substantial change from the architectural style we’ve had before but there are also fans that welcome the change as it is different from what we’ve previously gotten.

LEGO Downtown Cars Showroom Modular MOC

The LEGO Creator Downtown Diner (10260) has been out for a few weeks now and fans have already taken liberty to modify their sets into their own. One of these builders is Brickdance9 who has changed the Diner into a Downtown Cars showroom. The set only uses parts from the Diner, minus the Mercedes AMG GT3 (75877) that is on the second level. This is a very ingenious way of using an existing large-scale set and changing it into something unique which I’ve been seeing more and more lately online.

The LEGO Creator Downtown Diner (10260) was announced at the end of November but a new thing LEGO has been doing is putting out the designer video a while after instead of the same time as the reveal. Earlier today, LEGO has released the designer video of the Downtown Diner (10260) and senior designer Mike Psiaki talks about his latest creation but only a little part of it. The video mostly focuses on Mike himself as a designer. The Downtown Diner will be available starting on January 1 for $169.99.

LEGO Releases Statement Regarding Downtown Diner (10260) Minifigure Faces

LEGO Creator Downtown Diner (10260)

The LEGO Creator Downtown Diner (10260) was announced a few weeks ago as the next modular building that is set to be released on January 1. You may have noticed that the minifigures will now have facial expressions instead of the usual smiley faces that we’ve gotten for the past decade. A lot of longtime fans of the modulars were disappointed in the change as it strayed away from what they were used to. LEGO has been following those comments and the Creator Expert team has released a statement regarding the use of facial expressions in the Downtown Diner modular.

Over the past 10 years our modular buildings have evolved in many ways. We’ve added more interior details, more story-telling and more emotional triggers such as unique decorations on windows & Minifigure torsos. We now feel the time is right to bring the Minifigure expression in line with all the amazing details now offered throughout our models. We have always loved the classic smiley face for its versatility and nostalgia value, but are now excited to explore the new possibilities expressive faces will offer us.

Ranking the LEGO Creator Downtown Diner (10260) to Previous Modulars

LEGO Creator Downtown Diner (10260)

Now that the dust has settled down on the announcement of the newest modular building, the LEGO Creator Downtown Diner (10260), let’s talk about how it matches up with the existing modulars. Many fans like the 50’s style of the building while some didn’t like how it looked as it doesn’t match up with the architectural styles of the previous buildings. Another complaint I’ve seen is the use of expressive faces the minifigures will have compared to the traditional classic smiley faces.

Compared to the previous modular buildings LEGO has released so far, how would you rank the new Downtown Diner (10260)?
