This is my favorite modular set out of the five I have built. It is very detailed and they do not leave a lot of wasted or empty space. It is a rather tight space to work in. The pool hall has a beautiful pool table and ceiling fan. The "glass work", "POOL", and "AL'S" signs on the front side of the building are very attractive. I rather enjoyed the amount of detail they placed in the detective's office which included a secret letter behind the picture, a wanted posted, a cluttered desk with a very nice desk lamp, hat rack, magnifying glass, fan on a storage cabinet, safe, etc. The bathroom across the hall didn't seem to fit with the rest of the building but has an element of humor to it. I was glad that there were secondary options in the set for hair/head pieces for the characters. The news stand is a welcome addition and helps make the modulars when placed together look more like a city street. I have the Parisian Restaurant modular to the left which shows off the brickwork on the side of the detective's office. I do wish that the pieces used to hang up the picture and the wanted poster were the same color as the brickwork as those fairly visible from the outside of the building. The ladder in the middle of the buildings just kind of hangs there and it more of an aesthetic piece and is not very functional. The height of the building is relatively close to that of the Brick Bank which I like because it gives bank robbers another route of escape and another element of the law to run into. Speaking of the law... the story line that goes with the building is a "sweets" prohibition era story that I rather enjoyed. The passageways aren't easy to use but creative and fun. The lady upstairs is the one baking the sweets. She does have a cat sidekick. There's a "Bricking Bad" pun in there I'm sure. It was a fun build and I'd like to see more like this.

I am overall disappointed with the set. The small size equates to limited playability, despite the Detective's Office being centered around children. I am not a fan of the "smuggling cookies and candy" storyline. As a result, the kitchen does not seem to fit in with the rest of the set. Another Lego fan mentioned that the hidden tunnels and spaces are pointless and I could not agree more. If you are starting your collection, or are on a budget, I suggest that you focus on purchasing the Parisian Restaurant, Palace Cinema, or Pet Shop. All of them are great sets. I would encourage Lego designers to stay faithful to their more mature modular-fan audience. I would recommend, if you choose to buy this set, that you convert the upper floors to a small police station. The set makes greater sense by doing so. Pros: New Pieces (Mirror) Impressive Interior Cons: Small Size Storyline (Smuggling Cookies) Lack of Sense (Kitchen is waste of precious space)

so great!

By quick2017

Comments about LEGO Creator Expert Detective's Office 10246:

This Lego set is so great. It is my favorite set out of the three Lego sets in this series: The Parisian Restaurant, The Brick Bank, and The Detectives Office. The Detectives Office has lots of cool parts too- The Als sign, the Pool sign, and the Detectives Office. I love this set and if you get it or have it I hope you like it too.

Must Have For Any Size Lego Town

By Wobbles

from Naples

Comments about LEGO Creator Expert Detective's Office 10246:

This set is amazing! There is a lot of detail in this multilevel building. Includes the following scenes -Barber Shop -Detectives Office -Restroom -Pool Hall -Break Room/Kitchen What I like about this set the most is the multiple scenes. This set is advertised as a Detectives Office but in fact it includes so much more. The breeze way is a neat add in. I am sure most people see it as an area missing pieces but I think it makes it more realistic. The curb appeal is very captivating and the architecture of this set is really well put together. The pool and barber advertisement brings this building to life. Also the water tower is a nice touch bringing a classic detective theme. I enjoyed building this set it is great buy for any Lego town.

Great Fun - Fantastic Story Telling

By Kevin001

from Undisclosed

Comments about LEGO Creator Expert Detective's Office 10246:

I can't say enough good things about this set. There are many unique and enjoyable micro builds, a ton of rare lego pieces, and you get a ton of bricks for the cost. The bonus "story" that comes with the set is fantastic! When guests ask about this set - I actually pull it out and walk them through the process of smuggling cookies throughout the rooms/buildings. Each of the rooms are fantastic, well fleshed out environments. More sets like this!!! I can't wait to build off of this one.

Great build awesome playability!

By B722

from Undisclosed

Comments about LEGO Creator Expert Detective's Office 10246:

I got this set for Christmas and have to say I haven't stopped playing with it for days, it has so many play features and it just looks great. Al's barber shop is so awesome the reflective mirror is awesome and the cookie smuggling feature is the best. The pool table is well built and looks great.i love the pull chain toilet oh though it is very hard to get a mini figure to be placed on the toilet.The detectives office is cool and comes with so many cool pieces and the desk is amazing. The third floor has some really cool details like the uni kitty tail. All up this has to be my favourite modular building out of them all. It has great playability and some awesome detail.

The Detective's Office

By IowaHawkeyeNation

from Iowa, USA

Comments about LEGO Creator Expert Detective's Office 10246:

The Detective's Office is one of the best Lego Modular sets out there. It is ridiculously detailed, and I enjoyed building it a lot. It fits well with the other buildings in the Modular line. On the bottom floor, there is a pool hall on the left called the Highlander. It is nice and the pool table that is in it is fun. Al's barbershop, next to the pool hall, is small but detailed. The mirror inside is cool, and while building you install it into the wall. There is an alleyway in the middle of this building, and it is the first Modular set with an alley. The spaces above it on the second and third floors have small decks with railings. The detective(Ace Brickman)'s office is large and has many cool features, such as a hidden compartment in the wall. The bathroom across from the office has a pull-chain toilet, with a minuscule sink. That is pretty much all there is on the right side, other than a potted plant. On the third floor, there is a skylight looking down into the detective's office. On the right side, there is a kitchen with many details. There is a stove and a rolling pin, and also a cat. The minifigures of this set: -Ace Brickman(detective) with hat and hairpiece -Policewoman with hairpiece detectivand hat -Lady with a red dress -Al the barber -Darts player -Pool player with stocking hat This set is amazing and I hope that buyers enjoy this set as much as I do.

Great Lego Set

By EvanCichone

from Undisclosed

Comments about LEGO Creator Expert Detective's Office 10246:

My focus with Lego has mainly shifted from play to display. This set is a little of both and is just beautiful! It didn't take me that long to build it although I have have many years of experience. The set was quite challenging. So if you have a son/daughter it would be a good choice if they are 14 and up, unless they have expert building experience. Over all it was a pretty cool set to make and it taught me many new tricks and building techniques, so if you want a fun set to build this one is just right for you.

Awesome Modular

By StewedGiraffe

from Undisclosed

Comments about LEGO Creator Expert Detective's Office 10246:

This is my first modular set and upon building it, the finished product turned out much larger than I had originally thought. Even though the highest point is about 11 inches, the completed model, to me, looks over a foot tall, it absolutely meets and exceeds my expectations. Pros: Wonderful color scheme Excellent details Nice play features (smuggling cookies) Cons: Barber shop is a bit tight for hands Overall this is an excellent model, I love almost everything about it!

Exciting build

By Legofireman84

from Belfast

Comments about LEGO Creator Expert Detective's Office 10246:

I now have a range of these sets and only got into them late on. This was a must have set for me because of how it looked, The outside has very nice details from the Barber shop sign to the bench, the nicest feature is the highlander pool room. Lots of play can happen inside even a dart board on the wall. We go up stairs to Ace Brickmans office, everything you would find in an office with a hidden extra. Over to the Barber side now and one person can get a new style of hair cut while chatting to the Barber Al, with mirror and more secret features it brings an extra story to this set of smuggling lots of treats and a who done it case for Ace. The down side is my hands are to big to fit into the buildings to play, but for kids they love it, making the figures walk along the front and into the rooms, and on the roof. I wished the Barber shop side was the same size width wise as Ace brickmans office. My next set is going to be the brick bank...
