EDIT: However, looking back, the forklift, IF it's a set, seems pretty cool..

I believe it comes with the truck... :-)

At least, I think they are new, it seems several of the pictures I posted before were not new at all.

there are a few in there i don't recall seeing before, for sure.

this pics make this sets look very clean (the preliminaries looked sloppy, unfinished stickers and pieces not snapped together correctly), so i find myself liking them a little bit more than i had originally.  still no where near as nice as what was released in 2007.

mostly im disappointed by the lack of new torsos, especially in the impulse line.  the only way that series is going to work is if there is a reason to buy them...  duplicate common figures is not a good enough reason for me.

i think i'll add the cargo truck / forklift to my collection  *sweet*

it looks like there is a new slope piece used beside the seat as well as the new window frame on the back (that Hinckley so kindly showed us X-D )

Well, duplicate figures save having to name *EACH* and *EVERY* citizen, so a few generic dudes here and there may be useful.

I'm really digging the Cargo truck with the forklift...looks like a great set and a definent want for me. The police Station looks phenomenal, but I may not be able to get it due to size/space...although it's very tempting

don't get me wrong i like generic fig in the city theme.  what i don't like is that LEGO uses the same torso for different occupations - the medium blue mechanic shirt is also the dock worker torso, and the construction worker jacket is also the sanitation worker torso.  i would think each occupation deserves its own design.

one of my favorite torsos is this guy's...

it's a slight spin on the standard construction worker torso, but it adds a lot of depth.  i would like to see this variation in the minifig packs - then i could see a purpose for them.

Depth emotionally or physically? I'm actually asking that seriously. Do you mean he's the foreman, because he has a construction jacket on over a shirt and tie or do you mean his eyes are gentle and a little sad?

ya, because he is wearing a tie, he's obviously a foreman or someone more than just your average grunt worker.  having a character like this adds a lot of potential for scene building via visual cues.

and although it wasn't my original point, those eyes are gental and sad, i like that face too  :-D

Thanks for that Darth Legois!  *sweet*
That police station is way cheaper than I thought it would be, its the same price as the smaller previous station!

And the price of that summer house is very cheap!  :'-)

Clearly Batbrick's mind has turned to mush!  *wacko*

Your welcome. ;-)

I also did not like the cargo lorry at first either, but having seen the new pics, I am also more convinced, I just hope the price is reasonable for England! :-/

Well, with all those new pics, I have the confirmation on which sets I will buy, or I will not! I don't want the police line, exept  the helicopter (just for the new handcuff). I have considered to buy the police station just for the garage doors, but it seems very expensive just for them...
I will just buy the post sets and the cargo truck.

Just hope that the coast gards will be better...

I'm getting the police stuff because my city is in Dire need of emergency services (2 firemen is far from sufficient.)
And i'm considering the construction pack. That steamroller looks Prooty hot.

Okay, I really like the idea of a coast guard, as it reminds me of a very cool set, Hurricane Harbor. Also, I do like that head. very neat.

Wow! Thanks a lot Steff!

the tow truck and boat look very good, and they don't look juniorised at all! The orc/troll impulse set is a must buy, it even comes with a rat. The MM one doesn't bother me, but I do like the kyak, it is a good source of those helmets!
