I quite like it, but I feel that my lego city is getting over-run with helicopters and planes.

Also I have got the helicopter from the 7237 police station set, but it is not as good as this

Plus I'am sooooo dissapointed that the  :-X stickers :-X are blue instead of black and green as they will not fit with the sets I have already got  :-D

Nice review thanks

Great Review!
The helicopter is very nice and a cheap way to get a cop and those new handcuffs
I wish the police impulse had those new cuffs  *sad*
Thanks for doing this *y*

Cool review, thanks!
And I think that doctor hair piece isn't hinting at anything new, just some cartoony stuff for the pic. :-/

if you look at the police picture from the instruction booklet, it looks to me that the 3 sets in the bottom left corner are the bike (7235), patrolcar (7236) and prisoner transport (7245) from 2005, but with new blue stickers?

Thanks for the review PSPguy. I think this is a very nice little chopper... but the biggest reason why I will probably get this is for the handcuffs!  :-D

Are the side windows flush like the old ones or recessed like the new ones are supposed to me? (The look recessed to me.  :-/ )

What? If your asking how they are but together you snap the window piece into the ho\lder.

Errr.... no. As Brikbitz said on his site in the 7732 postal plane review...

Quote

You can see the traditional airplane window piece, but the bad news is they've changed the window pane. It's the new flat piece used in 4996 Beach House, it just doesn't work as well. Without the original bevelled edge it doesn't seal the window and there is small noticable gap around the edge. Not a major problem but it might get a bit draughty inside and certainly no high altitude flying.
I was wondering if it is the old or new type.

They're definitely recessed new windows in this set I'm afraid, just in case no-one has answered your question yet.

I got this set in Woolworths the other day. Tescos have it too now. I have to say it's my all time favourite Police helicopter. Nice review PSP guy!
