The modular building series from LEGO has included some great sets, and they continue with the Police Station. In addition to being a functional place where your mini-figs can do their thing, it tells the story of a crook apparently obsessed with doughnuts, maybe more than the cops. As usual, there are rich details, and it's super fun to build.

When you're messing around on a cruise ship in the tropics, it's only appropriate that you engage in the consumption of fruity drinks. So behold, The Cadillac Cooler!

LEGO has brought one of the best parts of Episode IV: A New Hope to your kitchen table. The Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina faithfully recreates the iconic mess where the droids stay outside, a dude loses his arm and Han Solo murders Greedo. It's all here! This is one of the most play-friendly sets ever made, with everything opening up and a staggering 21 mini-figs.
When Jeff and Diana visited an English pub (at Epcot, of course), Jeff learned all about the fabulous beverage that is Pimm's. The journey looks back at Diana's Shakespeare study time in the UK and how it led to the discovery of this delicious drink.

LEGO took their street building to the next level with this beautiful Diagon Alley recreation. It's full of minifigs with short legs, weird construction angles and a many hidden wands in Olivander's shop.
