Starting as always with the box
I didn’t know red cylinders were flammable.
Interestingly an action shot and not other sets you might like to buy.
The contents of the box.
Looks much like every other impulse set.
Firefighter, not sure there’s much else to say apart from I wish they’d included breathing equipment.
Looking pretty pleased with himself if you ask me.
The equipment rack is fairly standard and easy to build, it does however include a fire hydrant.
Inbuild shot, will I be able to finish this complex build.[/.
Unsurprisingly I did. I nice selection of kit is provided.
All together, I think the fire is a bit odd but it does add playability.
If you want to increase the number of your firefighter and their equipment this is a great way, though there is something missing in my mind.
The Rating System
Figures: 5/10 (Fairly standard I already have a fair few)
Parts 6/10 (Good selection of tools, but lacks the breathing apparatus I’d expect in a set like this)
Fun Fun Fun 5/10 (There’s clearly something to do even if you just own this set.) Design 5/10 (Not going to win any awards but it’s robust)
Price 8/10 (Nothing to complain about, you get a lot of accessories for the price.)
Grand Total 29/50 (Reasonable design and good accessories a good set to improve any fire department.)
This isn’t a set I’d necessarily buy, but while I was at Bluewater today I decided I should try to review every impulse set myself, so that why I bought it. Still I think it has some good playability and a good set of accessories if you need more firefighting kit, I just can’t get passed the lack of breaking apparatus, that would have made it a better set in my view.
