Lego Detective’s Office–Night One

Ryan’s sabbatical is winding down, so we figured we better get started on our last Lego modular set that’s just been sitting around…the Detective’s Office!

Only two minifigs in tonight’s build…I originally thought it was a thug and a barber with especially wild hair, but as we worked on the set, it became obvious that it’s a pool player and a darts player (although I still think the man on the left might be a thug).

This is an interesting set to build, because it’s split into four sections, but the way the book is numbered, it’s really only two builds. But we always like to draw out a project like this, so we’ll be building it over four nights, even if that does mean we’ll be working on relatively small sections each time.

The first night’s build is the first floor of the left side of the building, which is a pub (The Highlander). There are great details, including a pool table, a dart board, and a ceiling fan.

You can see the secret passage for the cookie smuggling operation that appears to be plaguing this building:

The front is perfect…they really captured the look of a neighborhood pub!

Next up will be the rest of the first floor, which is Al’s Barber Shop. We won’t get to the actual detective’s office until night three!
