10260 - Downtown Diner


Recommended Posts

The moc and the diner itself look like friends sets. The ugliest modular by a wide margin. 

Anyone who lives in the US has seen their share of the old school 50’s retro diners. Lego designers were obviously inspired by that and got it spot on. The colors are right.

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

I noticed this is tagged as "hard to find" on LEGO SAH UK. Does that mean anything? For comparison, pretty much all of the modulars are similarly tagged, except for Assembly Square.

Means nothing. They usually tag expensive exclusives with this. Could possible stand for 'Hard to find enough money to pay for it'

They do this with most direct to consumer (D2C) sets. It's hard to find because they don't stock them on shelves except LEGO retail stores (and previously TRU). Most big retailers carry them online though (Walmart, Amazon, Target).

Diner I ordered from LEGO Shop at Home in August just shipped. Could be coming back into stock there for one last run (hopefully)

They're still making these. I just bought a bunch last week, seal codes are all recent...

Just don't buy this set please, do me a favor!

Everybody & their grandma bought it already. There goes a 10251/10246 Scenario. They just cranked out too much.

I agree and stopped buying them during the summer.  I think if things stay or tend back to normal the returns will be like other modulars have trended.  But heading into flu season it could very well spike up again.

rumor says 10260 will discontinue as planned but will be rereleased. not sure if it's true ..........

makes no sense...on any level

if re-releasing modulars was ever a plan...why Diner out of so many better possibilities?

if it's laziness (logistical efficiency)...ie re-releasing a set that they can readily produce...but then why even retire it? it's not like LEGO made any kind of binding "promise"..and ofcourse plenty of examples of reneging on "hard to find" retiring soon" labels. This is not like the Saturn V which was brought back due to "popularity"...I don;t think that was ever "the plan" prior to Saturn's retirement.

The ONLY reason I can think of is a strategic offensive against resellers

Heard it from another source but can't share it, sorry. I very much hope it's not true, just like I said I am not sure of it.

want to see if anyone on this forum will concur this
