Fire Copter 1

This is FC-1, OVER. I'm making my way to Main Street now. The smoke is coming from the Legoland Hotel, OVER.

That's a roger. I'm going to shoot the 500 gallon now, OVER...

Fire in your Tabletown? No problem. Lego's set 6685 Fire Copter is sure to put it out - classic style.

Set #: 6685

Year Released: 1982

Piece Count: 99

Minifigs: 1

List Price: unknown

Here's a great fire-themed addition to your classic Legoland display. Starting with the instructions:

The set includes one classic fireman with a nicely printed fireman torso:

What a great little detailed helicopter. I love the use of the red and yellow colors:

The front opens to allow your fireman to quickly climb in:

In the back are two round yellow 2x2 bricks for the water supply and a hose connected on each side. Unfortunately, I lost one of the hoses.

And the entire set. Isn't she a beauty?

6685 Fire Copter 1 is a great supplement to set 6382 Fire Station released one year earlier.

After buying this great little set, I had fun puting out fires all over my Tabletown. Oops, I think I smell one now...

A nice little model with some neat features for it's age plus the all-yime classic fireman as a bonus. However, this design of chopper (the police station around the same time was the same design) I think dated very quickly. While is was good to use the hinged car roof - which was relatively new at the time - together with the inverted screen it was superceded very quickly by designs that stood the test of time far better (for example 6657).

Also, I don't think I could everbuy a Lego fire helicopter because it is not something we have in the UK/Eire. Police, Coast Guard, Ambulance, military, etc, etc but no fire helicopters. Not something I would therefore want in my Lego Town. :tongue:

Great review though. Many thanks again for doing these. :classic:

Cheers

I vote outstanding because it makes excellent use of the pieces that were available at the time. That cockpit makes excellent use of an inverted windshield. :thumbup: :thumbup:

I owned this set, and I loved it. Great idea to have the reversed windshield.
