Modular Buildings is a sub-theme of Creator introduced in 2007, which features large, detailed, connectable buildings, primarily aimed at older teenage and adult fans of LEGO. To date there have been nine sets ranging from fire houses to town halls. Each set costs around £100 GBP/$150 USD except for the more expensive 10224 Town Hall , 10243 Parisian Restaurant, and the 10th Anniversary 10255 Assembly Square and the cheaper 10182 Café Corner and 10190 Market Street.
- The original Street Layout is the combination of any of the following: 10182 Café Corner, 10185 Green Grocer, 10190 Market Street, 10197 Fire Brigade, 10218 Pet Shop, 10211 Grand Emporium, 10224 Town Hall, 10232 Palace Cinema and 10243 Parisian Restaurant, 10246 Detective's Office, 10251 Brick Bank, and 10255 Assembly Square. In 2018, a new street layout was established. The second Street layout includes the following: 10260 Downtown Diner, 10264 Corner Garage, and 10270 Bookshop.It utilizes TECHNIC pins to connect the buildings together. Café Corner, Grand Emporium, Palace Cinema, Brick Bank, and Corner Garage are connecting corners by which two sides of the layout can be joined together.
- All sets in the series feature a number of common attributes. These attributes include:
- A light-grey tiled curb one stud in width
- Dark grey tiled sidewalk
- Metallic grey grille elements acting as storm drains
- A white fluted lamp post with a translucent-clear minifig head acting as the lamp and topped with a white 2 x 2 dish
- The buildings themselves are placed approximately 7 studs away from the front edge of their baseplates, although this can vary based on other decorations and structures along the front face of the buildings
- All buildings go edge-to-edge on two sides of their baseplates to enable the buildings to lock together side by side. For straight-side buildings, the two edge sides are opposite of one another; for corner buildings, the two edge sides are perpendicular.
- On each flush edge, two 1 x 2 Technic bricks with a single hole in the side, mounted at the base of the building exactly 10-11 and 22-23 studs from the curbside edge. These act as mounting points so that 1 x 2 technic pins can be placed in them and the buildings can lock together and remain flush.
- All of the sets before 2018 include minifigures with the classic face (except 10190 Market Street as it has newer ones).
- All of the sets have a recommended age of 16+ except 10224 Town Hall, which is recommended for 14+, and 10190 Market Street, which is recommended for 10+.
- The set 70620 Ninjago City and 70657 Ninjago City Docks is compatible with the Modular Buildings series.
- Most of the Modular Buildings appear in Lego media including The LEGO Movie and Lego City Undercover .
