Law & Order: Lego City
on March 16, 2011
A crime wave has struck the Lego City. Scruffy-looking criminals have been breaking into ATMs throughout the city (and probably jaywalking as well). Fortunately the brave members of the LCPD are on the case. These are their stories.
OK, maybe it's not that dramatic, but how much fun is this new Lego City police minifigure set? While it includes an ATM and small ATV, this set is mainly about the cops and robbers. You get a pair of police officers (armed with flashlight and handcuffs, but no guns) and a pair of crooks (with crowbar and loot bag), plus a police dog.
Complexity -This set has 57 pieces, and most of them are the minifigure components. My 5-year old son assembled everything on his own, working from the instructions, in about 10-15 minutes. The ATV was the most complex thing, and even that was pretty simple.
Playability - The sky's the limit. You've got everything you need for endless cops and robbers stories, and these minifigures are very easy to incorporate into the larger Lego City sets.
Sometimes it's the simplest sets that are the most fun, and this Police minifigure set is one of those sets. My son had a terrific time assembling and playing with this one, and I'd consider it an essential addition (or starting point) to the Lego City collection. The fact that it's such an inexpensive set is the icing on the cake.
