I picked up this set mainly because of the many (5+spare) glow in the dark parts and the promise of 2 racers and one helicopter for the price of a little more than two racers (90kr. vs. 2x40kr.)
The back of the box shows the two alternate models you can build if the polybags rip.
There are 3 cheese slopes and two 1x2 tiles that glow in the dark, where the tiles are exclusive for this set.
The total parts count is high at 142, but there are no really big pieces among them.
Inside the box you will find the building instructions, a sheet with some odd sticky labels (thrown away) and 3 polybags marked by the bag building difficulty.
The lime colored car doesn't bring out anything new. We have seen racers built like that before, but it does contain some nice bricks for the collection.
The police cruiser surprises with an interesting design along the sides as seen here. It is harder to build because of the greater level of details:
The helicopter is without doubt the hardest vehicle to build in a bag. I can't finish it because it's larger than the bag. You can't put on the top blades nor the tail of the thing, so it beats the forklift from 7733 where the top bar is the new kind that doesn't completely fit.
There is also instructions for the alternate models, but it requires the bags to be opened...
The vehicles are pretty standard for the racers theme with the police car being the highlight of the set
I like the difficulty curve between bag 1 and 2, but the last bag should be labeled 1000000 instead of 3. It requires some inhuman skills to build that helicopter in the bag... ?
Lime colored car: 3 - We have seen it before, but it has some nice pieces... and lime.
Police Cruiser: 9 - It has a massive diffusers, rare parts and a high level of details. It is a shame LEGO relies so much on stickers.
Helicopter: 6 - if you see it as a set for one fourth of the price of the cars, it is quite amazing, but you can't bag build it and I would personally prefer some more detail instead of the big size.
Overall it is a nice little set, but the police car is the main attraction. I wouldn't get the other vehicles if they were sold separately.
