Found a redesign on reddit I like a bit. 

It contains 2,480 pieces and retails for US $169.99/CA $219.99/DE 149.99€/UK £129.99/DK 1399.00 DKK.

Rumors are that the along with their change in packaging from plastic to paper, Lego is taking an ecologically sensitive approach to the diner as well. The revamped Diner will feature more vegan optio

That boxer is one weird looking dude.  Pretty sure he's getting in shape to go do some low budget porn.

The set is a cool change to the series, though.  I do like it.

Haha. I think they got their boxer eras wrong.  He looks like a boxer from the 1920s but with modern trunks.

People from US like this set better than those in UK, Germany and Poland I talked with.
Most of them are finding this set hideous and lacking the extra details from outside that Modulars were known from.

I don't like the looks of this set but I will buy day one because I genuinely appreciate one of the greatest selection of old and new brick moulds in new colours. Some of those colours were long forgotten like teal (dark turquoise) last time used afaik in late 90'?. https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?S=8432-1#T=S&O={"iconly":0}

But I need to see those bricks in real life, picture could be misleading


I don't really mind the idea of getting rid of generic faces...

Quick thoughts FWIW:  Too much pink.  I would prefer a bright red Diner sign.  But I can see why they chose to go with the color as it fits.  People who are familiar with South Beach in Miami should instantly see the influence.  I do like the Art Deco meets Googie architecture.  Definitely more fun and visually arresting than the boring Brick Bank and Detective Office.

Up at EU SAH. 130 GBP but 170 euros in Spain, France and Holland. Wow, just wow.

Seems only Germany get it at 150 euros.

It follows the exact same pricing difference shown already with Brick Bank (£130 in UK, €150 in Germany, €170 in The Netherlands). 

Maybe the Danes are scared the Germans will invade them again if the Germans don't get preferential treatment! :D

If you look closely, you can defenitly see that the diner is a corner set ... No pin what so ever on the picture and both views have a great finish

The larger picture clearly shows that it is not a corner set. You can connect it with pins on both the left and right sides.

It's not at all in keeping with the existing beautiful modular building so I'll be giving this one a miss. I'm no longer chasing poor sets to become a completionist. For example, the only IDEAS sets that I don't have (and never will have) are the Exo Suit and Adventure Time ;-)

Personally I find this set better looking than the soon departing Palace Cinema, especially on the interior design. And I think it does stylistically match side by side with the Detective's Office.
