LEGO’s modular building set 10243 Parisian Restaurant has a fully-stocked, blue and white tiled kitchen with tableware. As well as a cozy apartment with pull-down bed, kitchenette, and fireplace. On the top floor is the artist’s room with a studio that includes a cast iron heater, easel, paintbrush and two works of art by the aspiring artist. Outside, stairs lead down to the roof terrace lined with hanging lanterns and flowers where the diners eat alfresco-style. This fantastic Parisian Restaurant recaptures the feel of Paris with a facade with croissants, clams and feather details. This set includes five minifigures: chef, waiter, girl and a romantic couple. It contains 2469 pieces and is over 11” high × 9” long × 9” wide. Also, it can be connected with other LEGO Modular Buildings to create a lively LEGO town (We personally like to pair this set with 10260 Downtown Diner)!
Is Parisian Restaurant the Next LEGO Modular Building to Retire in 2018?
10243 Parisian Restaurant is likely to be retired this year. LEGO released this set in January 2014 and it is the oldest Modular Building set that currently available in the market. Using the history of similar products, the typical lifespan on these sets is around four years. Any set that over four years old is always at risk of retirement. So, this won’t be a surprise that 10243 Parisian Restaurant is the next set to be retired at the end of this year or early 2019.
Parisian Restaurant is a beautifully detailed set ant this will be an excellent addition to the modular building series. This set that worth purchasing as the previous retired Modular building sets (10224 Town Hall and 10197 Fire Brigade) hold their value very well.
