Posted Image & Poll Added -TheBrickster

Greetings! I bring to your attention the review of a set 3648 Police Chase!!!

The general information:
Theme - City
Subtheme - Police
Year of release - 2011
The Quantity of details - isn't present the information
Quantity of minifigs - 3

And on Вrickset.com the inscription weighs: "This set has not been released yet."!!!
The set is marked by an inscription "Special edition", probably it is a limit set!
The box given a set has the square form, but in itself not the small sizes!

Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image

That you had concept about the sizes of a box, we will compare it to a minifigure:
Posted Image

And now we open a box:
Posted Image

And so, in a box is: two packages with details (in everyone on a small package), two parts of the instruction and a label
Posted Image
Posted Image

I would like to pay your attention to some details:
- A new detail
Posted Image

- Details with drawings
Posted Image
Posted Image

Now we will consider minifigs of the given set:
- The policeman, the driver of a motorcycle. Pay attention to the person of a minifig - it new!
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image

- The policewoman!!! In my opinion it for the first time in sets subtheme "Police"!
Posted Image
Posted Image

- The driver (probably infringer). Such body already met in a set 3177!
Posted Image

Let's pass to the set!
And the first we have a motorcycle of dark blue color!
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image

Now we collect the police car!
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image

The car is collected! We will consider it:
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image

To plant a minifig inside it is necessary to remove a roof, as before:
Posted Image

Let's compare the given car to police cars from other sets:
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image

Further we pass to assemblage of a red sports cabriolet:
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image

Let's consider turned out car:
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image

In my opinion the smart cabriolet has turned out! We will compare it to sports cars from other sets:
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image

Also in a set there is a small site of road, to be exact sidewalk on which there is a traffic light, a traffic sign and... а police radar!!!
Posted Image
Posted Image

Well and now all set in gathering - looks very harmoniously:
Posted Image
Posted Image

In a set it is a lot of spare details:
Posted Image

In general, I consider that it has turned out excellent with excellent vehicles!
Excuse for my bad English!

I agree, I really like the design of the vehicles. The SNOT constructions on the back of both vehicles look great.

Great review on a great set. But IMO it's way to overpriced :sceptic:

Thanks for the review! :classic:  I like this set a lot, particularly the look and design of the two cars. Although I do think that the UK S@H price of this set (£18.99) is a little steep, when this set has 173 pieces, exactly the same as set 7286 which is £5 cheaper (but 7286 has 1 less minifig and 1 less vehicle).  :sceptic:
Well done on the review.  :thumbup:

Very nice review, great pictures! The comparison shots between the vehicles is very useful. The red car looks very nice and it is probably the best of its kind. I also like the police car since there are some small details that makes it differ from the previous cars.

The printed road sign and the new minifig face is also a plus.

Thanks again for the review mifody. :classic:

Thanks for the review 'mifody' of a set of ups and downs, the up the side a female officer, new motorcycle cop head and a dam cool cop car.
Now the downside, that dam three wheeled bike and do the Lego city police employ flat chested women do they ? :laugh:
In any case I be buying one set at least for the new cop car.....keep on policing your city/town everyone ! :grin:

Thanks for this review mifody, I must say that sports car is absolutely fantastic Posted Image, The police car is okay but I think it has more of a racer feel to it rather than city.
I'll be picking this up for sure.

Thanks for the review! This set is nice, especially considering how different the cars are compared to other cars from recent years. I think this set will be very popular with young kids :thumbup:

New to you? :wacko:
Thanks for the review! I think this set is great, but I fear it will be 30 US dollars, which is way to expensive.
Its a nice set, though. :classic:

I'm really pleased to see printed road signs again, it really annoyed me when they changed to stickers, as I tend to not add the stickers to my sets, most of the time you can still see what the set is without the stickers, but when it comes to road signs, you are limited.

This is good, but still not worth the price, I'm really hoping these new prices are already set at the higher rate of VAT for the UK and they don't intend to add another 2.5% to the prices on the 4th Jan!  If they do that, this year will hurt my wallet.

Perhaps she is wearing a bullet proof vest under her uniform?  They tend to have that effect.

This is a marvelous set, I really love both of those cars.  I only wish LEGO ditched the three wheeler mold and included more police motorcycles.  My son has two LEGO police motorcycles, but that's only because I bought one online.  They seem to have a limit of one set per cycle with an included motorcycle.  With that limitation, how can we reenact our favorite memories of C.H.i.P.s?   :laugh:

Thanks for your review mifody!  This is in my opinion a weird set.  I don't understand the purpose of the three wheeled bike as I have never seen one in an urban setting...  With that said, the cop car looks good and a female police officer is a great addition to the LEGO city police force!

Excellent review mifody! Well-written, great photos, and I simply love the comparison photos of the vehicles, good job overall! :thumbup:

As for the set, I think it's great, the description says it all - Police Chase! This is something all kid boys will definitely enjoy playing. For a small-sized set you get three cool vehicles, 2 cops (and one is a lovely lady), and a baddie/'violator', what more could you ask for? I really like the upgraded sleeker version of the police car and the red convertible. I would have preferred the current police motorcycle for this set, but the blue trike will suffice.

Thank you very much for this great review, mifody! :classic:

I voted for
average.

Pro:
-excellent looking police car :thumbup:
-speed control
-civilian minifig as car driver (and not again a prisoner)
-female police officer :thumbup:

Con:
-(ugly looking) police trike
-boring color for the civilian car (we already have got that many red and yellow cars - so why not some blue, black or grey ones?!)
-no car doors in both cars :thumbdown:

With nearly all cars in the 2010 City sets including car doors, it's really a step backwards that TLG didn't include car doors in these two cars (as well as in the majority of the new police sets). :cry_sad:
If TLG included car doors in the cars, AFOLs would be much happier because so the cars would looke much more authentic, and JFOLs would be much happier because so more playability is offered.

For that price I would think about getting it. But for 30 euros? No way!

I think the speculation is that this is going to be an exclusive for a major US retailer, perhaps Wal Mart.  As such, it may not show up until Wal Mart does their fall toy aisle reset (usually in early August).

It's strange that they'd hold this one for a later release and/or exclusive-- I'd have thought perhaps Prison Transport or something might have packed a little more punch.  Even with the Bank & Money Transfer, I'm really looking forward to adding this chase car to the squad!

PS-- Almost forgot, Hey Look, I'm a KNIGHT!!

Anyone in the US spotted this set yet? Too soon? Maybe closer to August as speculated... My city needs another stoplight!
