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)

I kove this set!

By BeaconHillBuilder

Comments about LEGO Creator Expert Detective's Office 10246:

Everything about this set is awesome. Details, details, details!! This set has them. From the sports pub setting on the ground floor, to the detectives office on the top, this set has so much character. I own all the new modular building - Parisian Restaurant, Brick Bank, Assembly Square - and this one might be my favorite. It's not as ornately decorated from the exterior as perhaps the Brick Bank or The Parisian Restaurant, but it more than makes up for that with the little character details throughout. It's a super fun build and one heck of a display piece. Especially when combined with the other newer Modular Buildings.

Lot of story

Comments about LEGO Creator Expert Detective's Office 10246:

I love building it and playing with it brings a huge story. You get to pick who is bringing all the candy in and how you want to find the person that is going the candy. I say this set is worth the price.

The best LEGO set I've ever built

By ArkhamFilms

from Undisclosed

Comments about LEGO Creator Expert Detective's Office 10246:

I got this for myself for a 20th birthday present, and it took me a few days on and off building. And it was all worth it. It might just be the best LEGO set I've ever gotten, as well as the biggest, most expensive set I've ever gotten. There's just so many great little details, such as the toilet on the first floor, the pool table on the ground floor, and the new mirror piece. I would highly recommend this set to anyone.

Detective's Office is Quite a Find!

By Mikeylangelo

from Undisclosed

Comments about LEGO Creator Expert Detective's Office 10246:

After buying the Parisian Restaurant, I was inclined to buy another modular set, because all of them look like great deals, so I bought the Detective's Office. And once again, a LEGO modular has blown me away. Allow me to list my pros/cons PROS: -Great minifigs, my favorites are the barber and detective -NO STICKERS WOO!! -Great assortment of pieces, from different colored bricks to the profile brick that I appreciate, and even a mirror that will come in handy for my own creations. - Great deal, as I said with all modulars, considering the price-to-part ratio -Has very cool functioning features, from the drop-down ladder to the smuggling of the cookies which I thought was really clever CONS: -Just one, the space inside is hard to play with, for there isn't much room to put minifigs, and I continuously knock over pieces inside. Overall, this is a fantastic set, and even though I still like the Parisian Restaurant better, this set has play features, which the restaurant did not have, so I appreciate that. I recommend!

Just go to the detective!

By LegoFan10225

Comments about LEGO Creator Expert Detective's Office 10246:

Overall, the Detective’s Office has been a wonderful and exciting build. This model does a really good job of capturing a regular scene and making it into a beautiful LEGO building. The building has many cool features, but my favorite probably would have to be the detectives office. The office is designed very nicely, and makes it look very real. Here are some of the nice features in this model: - The theme - Prohibition. Instead of alcohol, LEGO uses cookies. The little area above the office bakes them and then secretly delivers them to the pool room via little secret passageways. - How LEGO has spelled out the word 'pool' so nicely - How LEGO has spelled out the word 'Al's' so nicely -In the barber shop, there is a mirror that actually reflects - How the stairs fold up so the barber shop is more accessible for playing Here are some of the features in this model that could be improved: - Even though the stairs go up in the barber shop, it still is really cramped and is hard to fully appreciate all the work LEGO has put into it - The windows on the Detective’s Office don't go fully down, they stay awkwardly on one side or the other and give a bad showcase look - Right above the barber shop there is a bathroom. Surprisingly there is no window shade or anything like that whatsoever. I find it odd that you can easily see someone in the bathroom. - I think that the windows are lacking design in this model. It would have put the perfect finishing touch on the model if the windows were less plain In the end, I think this is mostly a showcase model-it is sort of hard to play with. The price is a little bit high, but it is reasonable enough. Overall, it is a really good model with lots of cool elements and design.

Pleasantly surprised by the challenge

By AlexAFOL

from Charters Towers QLD 4820, Australia

Comments about LEGO Creator Expert Detective's Office 10246:

My 1st two modular sets arrived yesterday and I was itching to get home from work, put on some music, and get stuck into building the Detective's Office. I was confident that I'd knock it over in a few hours but I u underestimated the time it takes using familiar bricks in unfamiliar ways. LEGO has put some very cool features into this building, my favourite being the "prohibition" theme in the Barber's shop & the Highlander. I chose this as my first set as I go by the mane "AL" and having Al's Barber shop in my little town is pretty cool. Anyway, I got to bed at 2am after an enjoyable 8 hour build

Comments about LEGO Creator Expert Detective's Office 10246:

This set has amazing detail and is a huge value for the price! My son loves coming up with scenarios for the set and says it is his favorite Lego set so far. He is 9 and a master builder for his age but did need help with this set since it is for ages 16+, but it was a great mom-son activity, a weekend well spent!

A very good set

By FrankThePlank

from Undisclosed

Comments about LEGO Creator Expert Detective's Office 10246:

Very good. I liked the hidden compartment and the pathway between the barber's shop and pool room. Decent minifigures would prefer to see a crook and a child. If possible, could a police car be added. My only problem is the barber's shop is a bit too small.
