The oldest LEGO modular building sells out online

The oldest LEGO modular building currently on the market has sold out at the official online store, becoming the latest in a string of sets to disappear ahead of the festive season.


10255 Assembly Square first rolled on to shelves in 2017, marking the 10th anniversary of the LEGO Group’s retroactively-renamed Modular Buildings Collection, which now falls under the LEGO for Adults umbrella. And while others have since come and gone – including 10260 Downtown Diner and 10264 Corner Garage – the biggest modular building to date has become an evergreen product.

That means it’ll stay on shelves far beyond its usual lifespan, and in fact is currently scheduled to hang around until at least the end of 2023. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t also prone to selling out every now and again, and that’s exactly what’s just happened in the UK and Europe. The 4,002-piece set is also temporarily out of stock in the US, suggesting it’s still proving popular worldwide.

If you were hoping to snag 10255 Assembly Square in time for Christmas, sign up to our stock alerts and we’ll let you know if it comes back before the cut-off date for Xmas delivery. And while it’s definitely not the first set to sell out in recent weeks, there’s still plenty left online to make the most of double VIP points, which is live in the UK and Europe for this weekend only.

The LEGO Group has also recently revealed its next addition to the Modular Buildings Collection in 10297 Boutique Hotel, which is packed with references to its predecessors. Check out our full review of the 15th-anniversary set right here.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
