How does Brick Bank compare to the other modular buildings? I’ve got Green Grocer and the Old Fishing Store (technically not one, but comparable) and at one point owned the theater, cafe corner and grand emporium. Are there any must haves from those that just retired (bank, detective, etc) or the more recent modulars? Thinking about picking a couple up over the next few months.
Of the most recent ones, the Detective Office is probably my favorite. Assembly Square and Parisian Restaurant would round out a top 3.
That being said I have the Bank & Diner but haven't built either yet.

^^ Fishing Store is a great build. Highly recommended especially at that price.
Also, I finally built the Ship in a Bottle set last week. Very cool looking but as far as builds go, pretty dull. Also the inflated piece count (300 studs) is ridiculous.

So I've spent most of this year doing a LEGO tear down of my kids' sets and piecing them together for 100% completion and boxing them back up (for their future children?) This has been a slow and monotonous process. Finding every little Friend's bow or butterfly has been interesting. My girls have collected a ridiculous amount of sets in the last 8-10 years and I've never broken down any until this year. We even moved a few years ago and just put all the assembled sets in tubs(worked okay). I've done a ton of the Friends sets, some city sets and miscellaneous stuff so far.
This week I tackled all their Jurassic World sets. They had the whole collection (big sets, polybags, TRU exclusive builds, etc). So all that being said, out of these dozen or so sets I was only missing 5 pieces. I was pretty excited about that. Bricklink to the rescue!
Now it's on to the Friends Amusement park collection (which they had most, if not all of).
As for builds I went all in and the League has been United:
Batman and Superman didn't come with a printed plate for the base. Kinda dumb. I probably just need to remove them off the other four.

Looks like the Jurassic Park set is already selling out ... ordered one at full price rather than waiting for a sale. Had hoped to get it for less, but I like some of the custom Jurassic Park stickers and pieces, so what the heck.
Speaking of custom, anyone seen any custom JP minifigs anywhere? I'd love an Ian Malcom, Hammond and Nedry. Haven't had much luck finding anything on ebay.

Finished the Old Fishing Store with my daughter this week. Wow, what a phenomenal set. It might be our favorite. I thought the price was a bit steep, but man this set packs a ton of little details in there. The sheer number of special/unique pieces is incredible. Highly recommended.
