Like promised, after the previous review of 4441 Forest Police Dog Unit here's my review of 4205:
4205 Off-Road Command Centre
Firstly the box:
The polybags, the instructions and the sticker sheet:
Bag one is for building the boat.
Bag two and three are for building the unimog.
And bag three is for building the trailer.
There is one new part in this set - the life vest:
And at least the set as whole:
All in all I give this set an
because of following reasons:
-detailed interior inside the control center
-very realistic looking vehicles
-much too huge unimog (looks more like Playmobil than Lego)
-boat fits only two minifigures
-overpriced (with its 40 Euros minimum 10)
-nearly no accessory comparing the size of the set
-as a police set it looks strange
I must honestly regrettably admit that if I had again the chance to buy this set, I wouldn't do so. Don't get me wrong: The vehicles look very realistic and offer a lot of playability. But they (esp. the unimog) are much too huge (whcih I regrettably didn't get from the pictures before buying this set) and for 40 Euros this set is definately overpriced. Like grogall already mentioned, it would have fit much better as a THW set than as a forest police set.
I hope this review helped you.
What do you think?
Btw: Supposably tomorrow evening I'm adding the third and for now last review - the 4206 Recycling Truck which is imo one of the best sets of this year.
