Lego 10211 Grand Emporium

Postby casper » Mon Aug 06, 2018 10:02 pm

I'm off work this week and have some time to myself so I thought I would start the Grand Emporium.
This set has been in the corner waiting to be built but I haven't had the time until now. Its a great looking set but how it compares to the other modulars we will have to wait and see. The set was released way back in 2010 and was surprisingly more expensive than some are today. It comes with 2182 parts and seven mini-figs two of which are shop Mannequins Bride and Groom.
it builds into a three story department store. 15" (38cm) high and 10" (25cm) wide

"Ground-floor clothing department, complete with a cash register, fitting room, hats, jewellery, perfume, and even a selection of spare trousers. A brick-built escalator to the second floor (can't wait to build this) housewares department with glassware and golden plates for special occasions, and then the top floor for the toy department (complete with toy house and push-scooter) with an impressive chandelier above the open atrium. Up on the roof are a billboard and skylight!"
Lots and lots of windows in this building so you also get a window cleaner, dont fancy his job :shock:

box :)

As this is a used set it has to be sorted :think: :snooty: got half way through and can get the rest from a bag search :)

the part I love to do is the flat tiled areas before the bricks go in, this one has a very nice design in front of the entrance.

Do you have a diver like the one's pictured below?
