Hey fans of the Lego City Police theme check out the latest police truck set. We’ve seen similar sets like this before but you’ll get some interesting new additions here.
First lets take a look at the main attraction- the big police rig! The truck measures over 13″ (33 cm) long. The front cab detaches from the trailer which has drop down prop so it can stand on it’s own.
The side of the trailer opens up and folds back to reveal the mobile police lab.
There are so many kewl details in here including computer stations, wall monitors, evidence billboards and of course a coffee maker!
The rig also carries a holding cell for transporting prisoners. This little jail cell is detachable too.
I like the minifigures you get in this set. You get two cops and a robber. One police officer is a traffic cop and comes with a police motorcycle.
There’s also a new police officer minifig type that wears a dress shirt and tie instead of a uniform. He’s a detective or CSI (Crime Scene Investigator). There are some kewl accessories included for him like handcuffs, flashlight, magnifying glass and gold brick that the robber nabbed.
The one gripe I have about this set is that if feels like it needs a forth minifigure. I think this set needed one more cop to drive the truck. The first cop is on his motorcycle and the detective wouldn’t be driving the truck. He should be riding in the back looking at the evidence. Still that’s about the only con I have about this set.
It’s interesting to note that this set is very similar to 7743 Police Command Center which came out in 2008. However, that set had an ATV instead of a motorcycle and included a little police tower. Ironically it also included a forth minifig. Hehe. Don’t know why they decided to drop it from this new set. Probably to keep the price down.
Also in this new set the robber has a sweet set of wheels himself. If you’re gonna have a getaway car it might as well be a hot red sports car!
