Sometimes there's no need for a big ambulance; sometimes you only need a doctor to get there. Fast!

Notes: car has doors! and that black plate with rail helps so that the roof doesn't only weight on the windscreen.

"Container Cupboards": that's where Doc puts its accessories when driving.

Review and rating.

Do you remember when Lego cars had doors? It seems so long ago... The car is simple; but as well as a set can be designed, this one doesn't look so realistic (isn't it what Lego has been doing over the last few years? Going realistic?) Doc is OK, but I guess many people would have wanted a female fig (and: brown eyebrows with black hair? that's odd :tongue: ) As I said, no Red Cross, but a politically correct Caduceus on the roof and sides. Extra pieces: 1 small antenna and 1 1x1 decorated tile.

Overall, a cheap way to own a doctor minifig and a nice vehicle to add to your town. Just above average.

Rating: 3.5/5

Nice review Cobra. Thanks for sharing. I esp. like the doctor's torso. I rate this little set a 4 based on the design of the vehicle and the classic doors.

BLOGGED!

EDIT: I must have missed this review after it was posted back in Sep. I went ahead and kept the blog, since it's always enjoyable to look at these reviews.
