The appeal of the LEGO Creator Expert sets comes from both the complexity of the design in terms of fine details and the challenge of the build. This is why many of these Expert level sets have a recommended age of 16+. There are some setd that are just too involved for smaller hand and younger players, and the LEGO Creator Expert Brick Bank Building set is the perfect example. This set has 2380 pieces in total, including intricate detailing for the exterior, fun features for the different rooms and characters for creative play.
The LEGO Brick Bank is an attractive building, inside and out, and offers something new for keen collectors
A bank is an important part of any town, and the same is true for any collectors creating their own town from modular Creator sets. The bank should make a statement in the center of town and provide an inviting, secure place for minifigures to deposit their money. Here the designers have provided this with a two storey building with grand architectural details, big glass doors and clock to keep everyone on time. There is also the fun addition of a little laundrette at the corner of the building, with its cute sign and washing machines inside. This really is a place where minifigure citizens can tick plenty of chores off their list.
Inside the bank, there is a lavish feel to the design that suggest that this is the most profitable and trustworthy bank in town. There is large foyer, with a chandelier and tiled floor, where customers wait to be served at the counter. Behind the security glass of the counter are the vault and safe deposit boxes. Upstairs, there are offices for the bank manager and his secretary. Again, the details and accessories are all stylish and high-end, with the leather chair, portrait, large desk and fireplace. There is also a typewriter, filing cabinet and coffee machine for the secretary.
This set has everything that characters need to manage their money with peace of mind.
The set would not be complete with some mini-figures to bring the scenes to life. There is the bank manager, secretary, a mother and child making a transaction and the helpful staff member behind the counter. The mother can fill out the slip to receive her coins and notes as the child eats some complementary candy. The whole scene is monitored by the security cameras as the manager works away upstairs. In the end, the scenes and drama that unfolds are down to the player. There is certainly room for imagination with this LEGO Creator 16+ Expert Brick Bank. Those silent alarms were included for a reason.
