The set comes with 2,262 pieces and will retail for $159.99. With a January 2015 release.
On the ground level of the Detective’s Office is a pool hall, called the Highlander. Amazingly it looks like the there is some underground betting going on too.
The front of the building features two balcony and a hidden fire escape. Perfect for sneaking around.
Next door is a barber shop which features a real mirror. Thats right a real Lego mirror.
“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.

The first image for the upcoming Lego Modular Detective’s Office (10246) has just leaked. Lego has been able to keep these new Modular Building releases secret for much longer then their normal releases. The new Detective’s Office will be released around January of 2015, which is only 2 months away. The Detective’s Office (Detective’s Agency) is a new direction for the Lego Modular Buildings. This new release will add a more seedy or bad section to town. It is a huge change in tone that the Modular theme needed. This set features the duel building design that was popular in the Pet Shop (10218). A Detective’s Office and Barber Shop. And, as usual a lot of interesting parts are being used. A whole ton of the new Lego brick-pattern pieces are used to build the Detective’s Office. A few Unikitty tails used for the roof detailing. There is even the new ball joints being used as column decorations. Everything needed to create your favorite film noir scenes are here. Including a woman in a red dress!
