10243 Parisian Restaurant
Today at BrickCon, 10243 Parisian Restaurant was unveiled. As it's the middle of the night here in the UK, I haven't been able to add the pictures to the database, so apart from this one which you can click on to enlarge, you'll need to look elsewhere for your image fix until I have time tomorrow to get them uploaded, so sorry about that.
Update: The alternate images are now in place on the set details page.
Anyway, the set will be available in January and here's the press release:
10243 Parisian Restaurant 2,469 pieces, US $159.99, CA $189.99, DE 149.99 €, UK £132.99, DK 1299.00 DKK
Have an unforgettable evening at the amazing Parisian Restaurant!
It’s very busy in the Parisian Restaurant. As a scooter zips by, inside the waiter rushes between the tables as the nervous young man gets ready to propose with the ring! It’s just as hectic behind the scenes, with the chef busily preparing the food. This beautifully detailed building is the setting for so many stories and is a great addition to the modular building series. The 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 amazing Parisian Restaurant model even includes a facade with croissants, clams and feather details that recapture the feel of Paris. Includes 5 minifigures: chef, waiter, girl and a romantic couple.
