Official Release from TLG: Continuing the winter scene series, the Winter Village Post Office is the perfect snow-covered setting. In the cozy post office, the worker is hard at work sorting all the mail into containers and sacks, while upstairs, there’s just time for the postman to take a break before setting off in the traditional post car with all the letters and gifts. From the pavilion outside, musicians fill the air with music, while children take in the wintry atmosphere by the park bench before throwing snowballs at each other – the musicians had better get ready to duck!
- Includes 7 minifigures: female post office worker, male postman, female, 2 kids and 2 musicians and a dog!
- Post office features dark-green split roof with snow, fireplace, light brick, table, coffee mug, and lamppost and mailboxes outside!
- Also features evergreen tree and assorted minifigure accessories

L. G. Orlando has MOCced up two distinctly different post offices representing typical US and European architecture of such buildings.
He’s taking requests for other PO versions and I must say I’m quite looking forward to any additions L. G. may come up with in the future. An architectural comparison between civil structures of the same kind in different corners of the world, as constructed by the same builder, sounds like an intriguing project and one which I will definitely try and keep C-T.net readers up to date with.
The quintessential delivery van in Europe, Filip Gabryel has built a great model of a Mercedes Vario in DHL colours. Complete with sliding side door and opening rear doors, this is everything a delivery man could ask for.
Filip has even included packages inside to be delivered. Check out the rest of the photos here.
Brickshelf member, avante who is from Hong Kong enjoys building town creations and his latest building project known as the Modular Post Office made it real impressive at the end of the street corner and even complement the Cafe Corner and Grand Emporium buildings in an attractive manner.
It has certainly made the Classic Town citizens feel very much appreciated after leaving the post office, especially after having to visit its well organised interior. You should do the same too.
Andy Hung has constructed a busy post office which draws inspiration straight from the heart of Honshu – both in terms of sedulity, and plain beauty.
Andy’s Nagoya Post Office (and especially its flora) is a nice reminder that springtime is on its way all over the world – and even if your town doesn’t have cherry blossoms as eye-popping as the sakura featured here, I’m sure you’ll find something equally fascinating outside the local post office.
Or in this case, coffee and a newspaper… It’s been a long wait, but it was well worth it – Modular expert Johan van den Heuvel, who we all know simply as Teddy, has finally come up with another beautiful (and big!) addition to his awesome line-up of modular buildings.
As you can see, this is another brilliant and vibrant MOC, continuing along the lines of Teddy’s “enhanced CC style”, using a 48×48 footprint. Naturaly, it is so full of life that it will fit just right alongside Teddy’s busy Central station or his majestic public library. And you know what the best part is? Mr. Whiskers, Teddy’s cat, has just found himself a new abode upstairs!
Having a chance to own a few Classic Town vehicles such as the 6653 Highway Maintenance Truck, this is actually the kind of vehicle size you will probably see in the streets of Classic Town.
For the case of delivery goods and parcels to companies and residences safely, I supposed a possible solution provided by Eurobricks Member, Raven Bricksoft, as he now shares his insights on this very Classic 6624 Delivery Van. For myself, I certainly miss such sets!
And you thought that this was a small delivery van? Guess again, because Tom Bricks builds an even smaller 4-stud wide flower delivery van in true classic town style. Head on over to the Eurobricks Town forum to check it out.
Nope, definitely not. This one is easily one of the best buildings of its kind that I’ve seen – which is even more inspiring bearing in mind the fact that it is Brickshelf user rileeuw‘s first actual modular design. If LEGO do give us a modular Post Office later on, this is probably one of the MOC versions that it will be compared to.
The perfect combination of colours and high level of architectural accuracy turns this into one of my favourite recent modulars – even though it may not be the biggest or most detailed one. I can’t wait to see what this great MOCcer comes up with next!
With the missing post office building in the current City postal theme, Eurobricks member, benny has decided to design his very own Post Office and Service Station at the same time by integrating both iconic buildings together. Do not miss out on both buildings’ interior, as you will be surprised to find out that the loading bay and service bay are some great playing features.
