A new Bricksburgh is coming soon and coming with it will be a new police station complex. As much as we love our classic-vintage styled police station, it was simply not big enough for a growing police force.

We're in the process of planning the new Bricksburgh Legotown tables. As we've previously written, the town will be located on two tables of 2 or 3 levels each. In the last post we described and linked the new sets that will be joining the airport complex in the new town. One of the biggest considerations when planning the town-- just as in real life-- is determining where the airport will go. No one wants to have jets taking off and landing in their backyard and yet, that is exactly how "old Bricksburgh" was laid out. Pictured below, you can see that while the downtown and beach areas were on the top level, the bottom level was for what was leftover, the neighborhood and the airport.
In designing the new town (and the new tables) we are going to have a much larger airport/shuttle launching complex. To better explain our design ideas, We've pulled out some pictures from the previous versions of the town as we explore the possibilities...

Happy New Year! We trust everyone had a good holiday filled with Lego gifts-- we did! The picture below is from a few years ago when Tyler decorated the town for Christmas. You can see the tree in the background got some bling to go along with the police station. This year a LOT of cool Lego sets were under our tree. Read on for some details, including links the sets!
