Kiss Me, Brickly

A while ago I posted about LEGO Sherlock Holmes, and now the Danish brick designers have gone a bit Black Mask with their new hard-boiled Detective Office.

LEGO-detective-office

The set features a detectives office over a pool hall, Al’s Hairdressers (with a secret candy-smuggling operation), the Highlander bar, and a six different figures including the ‘tec himself and a real sweet dame.

The set is incredibly detailed, with a mind-boggling 2,262 pieces including a flush toilet and a real mirror (and a hefty price tag). Detective Ace Brickman can explore his Damon Runyonesque city block to investigate a variety of crimes including a candy-smuggling ring and a missing cat.

At www.brothers-brick.com you can see a variety of scenes created using the new set

At The Brothers Brick you can see a variety of inventive scenes created using the new set.

The LEGO designers offer the backstory on YouTube here:

So, who can suggest a better hard-boiled pun for the title of this post? My second favourite was The Night has 2,262 Pieces.
