Name: Robbers' Hideout
Minifig: 4 (+1 Bear )
I'm not ne casual City buyer but as I saw the first picture of the new bear I fall immediately in love. I was really happy to see that this creature was also included in a "smaller" City set. The forest themed police looks also interesting. On Monday I decided to get this set and ordered it online. In germany it is an Lego Shop exclusive (no Toys R Us or else). I don't know if it's the same in other countries.
Today the set arrived and I started the build and review. Enjoy.
Front of the box.
Back of Box. It shows the features of the Set pretty good.
Topside of the Box. I like the inclusion of a background.
Contents. Four bags, two instructions, a DSS and a 16x16 green baseplate
The DSS in detail. I didn't apply those, so please don't miss them in the other pictures.
Booklet No. 1. This covers Bag 1 and 2.
Minfigs in bag 1, front and back. All three have prints on both sides, no doublesided faces. I like the new hat.
The bear. Just great.
Standing and running.
Pieces of Interest in bag 1. A golden 1x2 tile and a new mudguard.
The trike. There is a 1x2 printed "Police" tile. Exactly the same like in last years advent calendar.
Hot Rod build in progress and finished. Pretty simple build.
Spare parts from bag 1. I think I forget to add the grille piece to something.
Bag 1 complete.
Contents from bag 2. This only builds the Police Truck.
Truck build in progress. Pretty colourful inside.
Finished truck. The trunk is supposed to carry a prisoner. It won't be hard to escape this
Spare parts from bag 2.
Booklet No. 2 and random page. This covers bag 3 + 4.
Bag 3 + 4 contents
Pieces of Interest. Two new 2x2 modified round plates, eleven nougat brick bricks, 2 1x3 black tiles, two more golden tiles, a dark red fez and a transclear figure head. Nice selection.
The fourth minifig is also included in this bags. doublesided print, singleprinted face.
Hideout build in progress.
Hideout finished. It's more like an Forest garage than a hideout. Nothing special inside the house. I didn't expect much but this is very disappointing.
Spare Parts bag 3 + 4.
There are no real playfeatures but you get three vehicles and two opposing forces. A lot of chases are possible and the hideout is nice looking from the outside. The interior needs a lot of MOCing. The vehicles are also a mixed bag. The trike is nothing special, the Hot Rod a simple build and kinda boring. The police truck has a nice design and looks even great on it's own.
Two cops, two robbers. Very nice printing on all of them. Great addition for a city setup. The faces of the robbers are great and very useful.
You get alot of brown bricks, tan plates, a great green 16x16 plate and 11! brick bricks. The standout piece is the bear. Really great.
It's a nice set. In my opinion a little bit overpriced but this might be the result of the exclusive status. For parts and the bear it's good value.
