Retail price is $169.99 at LEGO! Awesome LEGO set... it adds a whole new layer of excitement and 'flavor' to the Creator Modular line-up. Having said that, the retail price for this set is $169.99. I'm hopeful that Amazon will start selling this set so it can be snagged at retail price rather than the higher and absurd inflated prices of secondary sellers. Long story short... excellent LEGO set here that offers a ton of unique detail and character, but keep your eyes open for retail price and steer clear of overpaying. Happy bricking.

All in all, if you're a fan of the Modular Buildings, then you'll eventually pick this set up if you haven't already. For those who are on the fence about it, I will say that it is an enjoyable build with very little downsides to it. The heads on the minifigures are easily swappable if you want the usual smiley faces to match up with the rest of the modulars.

You can tell early on while building this set that this one is something special. It's stunning to look at and they used a lot of cool new techniques and pieces when designing Downtown Diner. I like the new Minifigures (especially the boxer). I was blown away by this set overall and I would put it up there along some of my other favorites like Assembly Square and the Detective Office. I thought it was definitely worth the price and is an instant classic in my opinion.

The Downtown Diner is a unique modular. It's a new style, with new faces, and the start of a new decade of one of the most anticipated “themes” from LEGO. Modulars are incredibly collectible – I'd say more so than many other themes, and shows off a brilliant array of build techniques and parts. The build experience is phenomenal, regardless of some of the potential sticking points in the set itself. It may not fit with the other modular buildings, but we never know – this might be the start of something new, and you don't want to miss that!

Recommendation: meh average 88 / 100 by Tom

While an initial look at the price tag will often make people scoff, these large LEGO sets really do give you the most bang for your buck. They are also full of amazing details and fun features. I always learn new building techniques as I make my way through the manuals. Where this set (and, in fact, all Creator modulars) tend to lose massive points is in the Minifigure department. In the past, the characters have all been very generic. In the Downtown Diner, the Minifigs have a bit more personality, but it still suffers from the same low brick-to-fig ratio as its predecessors. Regardless, I love this set, and I highly recommend it.

Maybe my low expectations set Downtown Diner up for success, but whatever the reason, I really love this modular. Building it was a wonderful experience, heightened by the several clever bits of element usage. The three floors of the building varied nicely, and I was glad to not see another apartment included as one of the upper levels.

Modular Buildings range have maintained a consistently high standard for over a decade and a great deal of expectation is therefore placed upon each new set. I am delighted to report that 10260 Downtown Diner does not disappoint in the slightest, offering a thoroughly enjoyable building experience as well as a spectacular final model and a superb selection of minifigures. The innovation we have come to expect of these models is undoubtedly present and it includes tremendous detail both inside and out.

Creator Expert Modular Buildings aren't for everyone. If you're a Star Wars collector, you'll probably stick with something like 75202 Defense of Crait (which we also love). And for me, they were starting to feel very alike from set to set. But for builders with broader interests, these sets have become a must-have each year they're released. In keeping with the tradition begun by Jamie Berard's role as the designer of 10182 Café Corner a decade ago, 10260 Downtown Designer was created by fans-turned-designers Carl Merriam and Mike Psiaki. As a result, you'll stretch yourself and learn techniques that you won't see in the average LEGO City or Star Wars set under $300.
