We now have the first rumors regarding what next year's latest addition to the LEGO Creator Expert Modular Building Series. According to a new report, the 2022 LEGO Creator Expert Modular Building will be a Hotel and Art Gallery (10297). The details are not confirmed, but according to rumors the set will contain 6 LEGO Minifigures and will retail for $199.99 USD. As always, the set will be released on January 1st and will be available as a Shop@Home exclusive, before being later released to the wider market.
According to Promobricks, the LEGO Creator Expert Modular will be another corner building, but instead of being built at a 90˚ angle the building will be built slightly offset at an obtuse angle. The 2022 LEGO Modular Building will have three floors, with the ground floor facade built using nougat-colored bricks, which form archways on the side facing the street. On the opposite side of the building, the acute angle creates an open area that is filled with a small, one-story addition—which is where the art gallery is located. A gray staircase leads from the sidewalk to the roof of the gallery, which leads to the hotel terrace. On the hotel's roof terrace there's a palm tree, the trunk of which is built using several Crown Eggshell parts. The hotel's ground level facade has a light color and is decorated with additional archways. There is no large hotel sign like the one on LEGO Creator Expert Café Corner (10182), and the upper floor is covered by a roof that's built using turquoise parts.
Also, to mark the 15th anniversary of the LEGO Creator Expert Modular Building series, LEGO will be offering a Modular Buildings 15th Anniversary (40532) gift with purchase. The release of the GWP isn't clear at this time and may be given out later in the year as opposed to the release date of January 1st, but we'll know more as 2022 draws closer.
