LEGO Ideas The Modular Arcade

The Modular Arcade is the latest project on LEGO Ideas to achieve 10,000 supporters and put itself in the race to become an official set.

The project is designed to be an addition to LEGO's highly popular modular series, made up of large, detailed buildings that can be connected to form a LEGO street. The build consists of a pizzeria and small music store on the bottom floor, a games arcade on the middle floor, and accommodation on the top floor.

The pizzeria includes two tables, a counter area with a pizza oven, and a drinks machine. The floor has a classic black and white tiled look and red stools, which give it a very American feel.

The arcade is filled with retro games machines, covering several gaming genres, such as dancing, shooting, racing, air hockey, pinball, and skee ball. There is also a prize counter where minifigures can collect their winnings. All the machines look brilliant, but the standout feature is the amazing kaleidoscopic floor.

The top floor consists of a small apartment with roof terrace complete with fire pit. The outside of the main building also includes a dining table, some flowers, and a coin operated spaceship ride.

There are nine minifigures, including a man in a promotional pizza outfit, two chefs, a top floor tenant, and various customers.

The creator is avilabrick who designed the Retro Bowling Alley, which got turned into a production set this year through the Bricklink Designer Programme. They have also previously submitted their Modular Arcade project which made it to the 10k mark back in 2018. The improvements in their second iteration have obviously been well received, but it remains to be seen whether LEGO will want to approve a modular style build as an Ideas set.

The Modular Arcade joins the 22 other projects that have already made it to the third and final review round of 2022. The full list of supported projects is provided below:
