Discover a world of mystery and adventure with the LEGO Creator Expert Detective's Office! Step through the open archway and into the barbershop, where seated customers are pampered in the reflection of a large wall mirror, while next door, competitors play pool and darts beneath the comforting whir of a rotating ceiling fan. Venture to the first floor and you'll find the detective's office, his desk strewn with clues, a safe containing valuable evidence and a concealed wall compartment. Then visit the adjacent bathroom, featuring a classic pull-chain toilet, before taking the stairway to the well-equipped kitchen, from where you can access the roof terrace, complete with large water tower. This latest addition to the LEGO Modular Building series is packed with unsurpassed detail and hidden surprises. Easy-to-remove roof and ceilings provide access to the delightful interior, while the exterior of the building features a decorative roofline and a beautifully designed façade.

Great build awesome playability!I got this set for Christmas and have to say I haven't stopped playing with it for days, it has so many play features and it just looks great. Al's barber shop is so awesome the reflective mirror is awesome and the cookie smuggling feature is the best. The pool table is well built and looks great.i love the pull chain toilet oh though it is very hard to get a mini figure to be placed on the toilet.The detectives office is cool and comes with so many cool pieces and the desk is amazing. The third floor has some really cool details like the uni kitty tail. All up this has to be my favourite modular building out of them all. It has great playability and some awesome detail.

Must Have For Any Size Lego TownThis set is amazing! There is a lot of detail in this multilevel building.
Includes the following scenes
What I like about this set the most is the multiple scenes. This set is advertised as a Detectives Office but in fact it includes so much more. The breeze way is a neat add in. I am sure most people see it as an area missing pieces but I think it makes it more realistic. The curb appeal is very captivating and the architecture of this set is really well put together. The pool and barber advertisement brings this building to life. Also the water tower is a nice touch bringing a classic detective theme.
I enjoyed building this set it is great buy for any Lego town.

MehI give this set a 6 its staring to get ridiculous i can barely fit my hand it is very disappointing to see lego sets getting smaller for an massive price because i remember when lego was a fair price. I love lego but this set isn't their best work. I like the look but don't have the story line because the 99% of the buyers are 13+ and they want real build look and get inspiration, not a little kid set with a story line in it that would work for lego city but not lego creator expert. I would suggest the others modular buildings before this one. Hopefully lego gets their fax straight for the next modular building.

Well I have all the modulars (Market St, Café Corner, Green Grocer, Pet Shop, Town Hall etc etc) and they are slowly getting easier to build & less intricate.
I still remember the joy of seeing those earlier come together and being very impressed.
This set & the Parisian Café are pretty basic & Lego seems to be setting a trend here.
Not sure of the logic behind this and us Lego fans are definitely getting less but for the same money (and Lego is not cheap in Australia).
Bring back the difficult sets such as Grand Carousel. These types are the best sets and turn into genuine collector items.

A little smallI enjoyed this set but it is a little small when compared to the other modulars. It would be so much better with an extra level. Personally I much prefer larger buildings with less interior detail. The ability to sneak in hidden cookies is really lost on me. As an adult my hands physically could not fit into the barbershop to place or move minifigures- it wasn't even close. I had to take down a wall to get my hand in there. If you're an adult be sure you place the minifigs before you finish building the level. Overall it is good but not great. Great was the Pet Shop, the Cinema, and even the Grand Emporium.

Reverse Detective’s OfficeTry something different.
What if I can build this set in reverse (or mirror) way? That’s what I did. I challenged myself and finish in 3Days. Only the downside is I have to remember putting the Al’s and Pool signs in the rightway.

This is the fourth large modular my wife and I have assembled. (We missed out on Lego as kids, so we have become fans in retirement.) I have mixed feelings about this one. While it does have some cute touches like the hidden panels, tunnel, and wall safe, it really looks almost out of scale when sitting next to the grand emporium and city hall. It almost fits better with the bike shop/cafe from the City collection. The rooms have nice detail, but they are extremely tight. The box says it is for age 16+, and our hands are not large by any means, but we found it challenging to get our hands into the rooms once the walls were up, especially the barber shop side. This is probably one reason the walls inside do not go all the way to the ceiling. A number of reviewers have commented on the "story", but in the end, this is a toy. It is easy enough to change the story. They did provide a barrel (so if the story bothers you, change to prohibition?). Although I have to agree the story does seem pretty weak given this is rated as 16+. I would guess the story came after the design--probably next time it would be smart to start with the story first. The story tries to justify the odd placement of the rooms. It still seems to me, however, that the rooms are randomly placed. It would have made more sense to have the bathroom and kitchen above the pool hall (to provide food and facilities for the pool hall patrons) and the detective over the barber shop, although the sizes would not have worked out in the small buildings this set contains. I assume that Lego was trying to keep the price down, but I would rather pay a little more (we only get these once a year) and have a bit bigger building that made more sense. I actually just bought a second one of these and my wife and I are going to try to address some of the shortcomings we see in the build. Maybe it was a smart corporate decision to make this kit relatively small as they were able to sell two of them to the same family.

What's With All The Cookies?I absolutely love this building. I like how it breaks up the building to create some different texture and color in the modular line. The signs are also great. I did wonder as I built, what's with all the hidden cookies? It was well worth watching the video with the designer to hear the story behind that. One of my new favorite pieces is the wanted poster in the detective's actual office.
