The features in this set are totally above my expectations!
Firstly, I must say that the Police truck was my favorite part of this set-- rare colors (for a truck), high ground clearance and a lot of customizeability! Its tough, compact design makes it easy to play with, and you never have to worry about bricks falling off. It also features an opening hatch with a fairly large cargo compartment (which is quite simple to make even bigger).
The helicopter is tiny compared to most, making it easy to play with (and feature in videos). It has a lot of detail including a tail rotor and positional lights.
The Police station itself is designed to be played with, featuring an open back (making video recording a cinch!) and a lookout bridge.
The office has a detailed computer monitor and keyboard, a swiveling chair at the desk, and a cool coffee machine inside, with an access ladder in the back to get on the aforementioned bridge. On this bridge sit a radar system and a satellite dish, giving it a special 'forest' feel. Underneath the bridge there is also a cool opening gate.
The jail cell has a bunk, removable mailbox (for breaking out thieves!), and an open back for playability.
The roomy rock opens so you can stash cash (or maybe find evidence of a robbery). The tree by the rock is also very cool in structure, because you can place almost any LEGO object in it!
The Minifigures have awesome outfits: special Police uniforms and torn jail shirts!
The bear, crowbar, pickaxe and Police radio are very nice additions to my accessory collection!
No matter if you record videos, play alone, or play with friends, you would not regret purchasing this set. And even if you don't like the Police station, it comes with all the essentials for redesigning into any building you would need anyway!
This is a great lego set to own. It comes with 3 minifigures which is a good amount. The sliding cockpit and side door and rear door are really cool! The six-wheeler that fits in has 2 compartments that hold a cop's flashlight and handcuffs. Sometimes the doors fall off but if you use the doors more they will slide just fine. The set is really detailed. Especially the two pilot's cockpits which are wide and roomy for the cops. This is one of my favorite sets I have. THIS IS A GREAT SET!!!!!
My parents got this for my son's 5th birthday yesterday! It is a little too detailed for him to put it together all by himself, but he was able to help "mommy" put it together! Let me tell you.... It was SUPER fun for me!!!...and he loved helping and seeing it's progress! It only took an hour to put together! The instructions are SOO easy to follow! Being 5, he is old enough to know to play with it carefully. He loves it! he said it was "by far" is favorite birthday present. It is so detailed!!!...It has the all the controls, windows, doors that open, perpellers that spin easily, it even has a coffee mug on the dash! Highly recommend for ages 5 to 95!
I, as a general rule before I got this, was NOT a fan of Lego Helicopters whatsoever. This changed the game. I have to say, top 5 Lego City sets I own. The lack of minifigs is a small problem, and the rotors are easily bumped off. But the absolute majority of this set is just irresistible, three gullwing doors, a rear compartment big enough (Minus very few pieces) to hold my custom Police Truck, and most of all, the layout is my favorite of any chopper, the Chinook! This could be better, but not much at all. This is just realistic, even for just little plastic toys. I can use clear walls for a setup to make it look like it's hovering. Overall, this is just an addictive to play with set with many life-like features.
This set is a nice addition to a lego police force. My son really likes this set as he has a bunch of other city legos and this adds a few more things for his imagination to run wild with. The main benefit of this set is to add to you mini figure population and when compared to the "City Police Accessory Set " set #850617 it offers a better value. Both sets have the same number of mini figures and both have a dog. Granted this one has less handheld equipment but it more than makes up for it with the ATV and the ATM. This set is also cheaper than #850617 and comes with more pieces.
A great little set, nice detail on the quad , and i like the variety of police and criminals it includes. To be honest, i cant really think of any bad points. Its nice to have a reasonably affordable set that can boost the police in any city.
Nice minifigs, good variation,
I like the dog, there arnt many sets with a dog
Comes with equipment such as handcuffs
Small, cool viechle
Atm is a helpfull city addition, i still have it now!
Er, well, none!
Can someone please say what a top 1000 contributor is plz
Hope people have fun with this set and lego in genral!
This is one of the best LEGO police sets of all time!
The bike is great (I always like them though :P), the van is also amazing, one of the best LEGO police vans you'll find anywhere (still room to improve though). And as for the minifigures, I think it's impossible to ever have too many police or robber ones.
I had a lot of fun when I first bought this set, and I still do. Some of the cool things are the money and the motorcycle. I also like the prisoner transport. Overall it is one of my favourite sets!
This set was really nice and I had fun building it. I enjoy building easy sets like this every once and a while so I don't lose my touch on building. I would recommend this to a friend because this set was enjoyable, yet easy to build.
I love the lego city sets especially police. I think its a great way to show respect to the real police risking their lives for our safety. The truck is very nice and the ATV and the Cop. My only problem was it was a litttle expesive for such a small set. Other than that i loved it.
This is a great, fun, cheap set that makes a good invention to any LEGO City or police collection.
ATV: This is a fun vehicle for the cops that is quick and easy to build and provides some off roader backup in a chase. It is white and blue, the colors of all the cop vehicles, and seats one.
PICKUP TRUCK: The maroon and grey pickup is good for a criminal, a citizen, or Walker, Texas Ranger for that matter. The construction is very similar to Hawkeye's jeep in the Avengers sets. It is a very compact vehicle because of a few bigger, simpler, and more standard bricks used. It seats one up front and can hold two more in the back. The back can lift up to reveal some gold bricks inside.
MINIFIGURES: The set comes with two great figures for the vehicles.
COP: The cop is in my opinion the coolest out there. He comes with a head that is printed with a cocky grin and Aviator shades, a head that has been seen several times before, usually as some Special Ops guy. He's always my favorite in the sets, and I call him Rick. Anyway he wears dark blue jeans and is dressed in a tan forest police shirt printed with a walkie talkie and a badge, and wears a helmet and visor.
CRIMINAL: This guy is a bit different from the standard robber, as his prison shirt has ripped sleeves and he wears khakis rather than gray. He also has a bearded, angry face and a gray henchman hat and wields a crowbar, making him look like just the person this awesome cop could handle.
OVERALL: This is a fun, easy set that is a great addition to a larger collection or just for playability by itself. It has a cool looking cop and a rarer criminal, and I recommend it to anyone. I give this set a 5/5.
Since I love 4x4s, this was one of my favorite LEGO sets in the whole CITY series.
The coolish 80's-style truck is fairly smple to build, with cool accessories and even a tiny side model for extra fun. It also comes with ENOUGH pieces to build several variations of each, without paying a cent extra!
Being based on a standard plate, the design allows for much remodeling without much restructuring. To free-builders, this means lots of time spent on making it look how you want it to, rather than lots of time spent developing an efficient method of keeping it together.
Let's talk play value (since that's the best part). This truck has a high ground clearance, good for climbing over rocks and other obstacles. It also sports a removeable bed cover, with lots of room for hiding fun stuff! The ATV is also a lot of fun because of its size-- it fits through tiny places quite well (which is fun if you make videos).
Hello everyone, and I must say, AWESOME SET!!! This is such an awesome police station, I love how it looks like a police station. The old one looks more like a Military base. Let's take a look at the pros and cons:
Two police cars
4 policemen minifigures
1 female policemen minifigure
2 prisoner minfigures
No stairs to get to the third level
A helicopter launch pad, but no chopper
An empty room (I made it my Autopsy room)
Bush tends to fall off easy
Though there are some things that I don't like, I am going to rate this a 10. Thank you for taking the time to read this review, and remember, choose wisely.
