Review: 7285 Police Dog Assignment
Posted 29 November 2010 - 03:43 AM
Today I found 3 of the new City Police sets at my local TRU (in Vancouver). I spent all my money this month on Hogwarts, so I only bought the smaller set. This set contains a new police dog truck, and the brand new dog mold!
I looked through all of EB, and couldn't find a review on this yet, so here it is: my first ever review on Eurobricks!
Name: Police Dog Assignment
Set Number: 7285
Price: US $12.99 / €7.95 /$17.99CAD
Theme: City 2011
Year of Release: 2011 (although I got mine on November 2010 )
The Box (Front):
The Box (Back):
The new dog! Technically, the cap piece isn't new, but this is the first time I've seen it in white.
The DDS... I don't mind it, I like the new dog truck logo.
Random Page from the Instruction Manual:
The instruction booklet came neatly folded with the DDS inside it. It wasn't crumpled.
The Minifig and Dog
The police is same as before, but the dog is the gold here!
The front to show the printing; the dog is in the new nougat color, and not the usual brown.
The old dog mold seems to be taller and bigger; since the new dog has larger ears, but is shorter. The new dog looks more realistic though... but I think the old dog looks more 'regal' for a police dog.
The build for the dog truck is in 2 parts.
The dog container:
The door opens sideways!
The full truck:
Here is a comparison of the new dog truck with the dog truck from the last police station:
The old truck opens in the back, the new one opens on the side:
Minifigures: 9/10 - I count the dog as a minifig, and I LOVE it! Lost marks for the recycled police figure though.
Pieces: 7/10 - Not many special pieces.
Design: 9/10 - Great design; much better than the old truck!
Playability: 6/10 - Nothing really playable here; but I suppose children like rolling them around yelling 'vroom vroom'.
Price: 4/10 - I would expect this set at $12.99 CAD, it's $5 more expensive than I would've liked; but the dog is so worth it!!!
Hope everyone enjoys this review; it's a pretty worthwhile set to get; although the smaller one comes with all the new police parts: crowbar, backpack, dog... but sadly, my local TRU doesn't carry it yet.

Good to see some closeups of the new dog. I really like it.
By the way - it was time to get a new mold for the old dog.
And the new car is better than the one belonging to the police HQ. Thanks for the comparison.

OK, I think that truck could be much better.
Probably I'm not going to buy it, but still, thanks for great review.
Aww, dog is so cute ( ). I'm going to buy 6-8 of them on BL (depends on price).
Now, this old dog looks really ugly.

OVERPRICED I MEAN AWESOME!!!

I voted for
-no car doors
-no "Police" sticker at the back of the car
-nothing that overwhelming included
-great small set
I like it that TLG makes this police dog's car seperately available and didn't include it in the police station.
So you get the chance to buy some not that expensive extra set and the police station includes two regular police cars.

Just did one up today....
Could not wait till the 1st of Dec
new brick types
#4259942 (front head light support)
#4598769 (gray flat 1x4 with two pegs on either end) used as front bumper
Also was nice snug fit all around... this aint no megablock build...LOL
No car doors? wtf
for an off road looking truck, no suspension axels
All and all, it was a ok 5 min build....it will look nice next to the soon modded cop station (built with two stations into one for greater details)

I really like how the box at the rear is removable- I see this as a great vehicle to MOD!

To those who are looking for them right now, I have seen these in TRU as of last Sunday. They had one or two each of most of the 2011 sets (including Pharaoh's Quest), although it looks like their shelves are constantly being ransacked. Good luck finding a Harry Potter set of any kind - they seem to last about ten minutes on the shelf....
