Hi Guys, after yesterdays review I couldn't resist myself of posting another one.
I chose a set that hasn't been reviewed before, this was the only one in my collection.
So I hope you enjoy it!
7498 Police Station
- Theme: City
- Subtheme: Police
- Year released: 2011
- Pieces: 783
- Minifigs: 6
- Price: €99,99 S@H
The box is quite large, but so are all boxes these days.
The front show a nice overview of the complete set.
On the back we can see the playability of the set with the special feature's.
Almost 800 pieces, lots of plates and columns for the building. I already build the set once, so al the stickers are already applied.
4 books for the complete set.
The minifigs look nice and there are 6 of them. I also like the dog with the printed head
police car 01
So lets go on with the build. Booklet 1 lets us build the first car of the set.
The build is really straight forward as all of todays 4 wide cars.
The finished car is nice overall, fits nice between the current City police cars.
police car 02
The second booklet lets us build the next car of the set. It's a little van for the dog patrol.
The build is again straight forward with nothing special going on.
The finished car looks great, I really like the addition of the roof rack.
garage and prison
Booklet 3 lets us build the first part of the building of the station.
The double garage looks real nice, on top of that there are the 2 prison cells.
There's a dog pen with a bowl and a bone wich is a nice addition.
I wonder why I would put the crow bars under the beds of the prison cells, makes it kinda easy to escape for the prisoners...
The cell doors that slide in in front of the cells lets you close and open the cells.
For playability the prisoners can escape at the back of the toilets and can climb down rain drainpipe.
The fourth book lets you build the main building of the police station.
The first floor finished.
It has a front desk with a phone and big screen where you can see al the crime's happening and sent out car to it.
The second floor. Where the officers can take the mugshots of the prisoners.
The third floor with the water cooler and coffee machine. There's also a desk with some clues to solve the next crime.
The finished building. The only thing I really miss with this set is a chopper. A shame that the platform is empty.
The complete set
- Design & Build: 8/10 - Real nice design
- Parts: 8/10 - Lots of plates and 2 garage doors wich I always liked! Almost 800 pieces.
- Minifigures: - 9/10 6 minifig's is always a good catch, but nothing real fancy.
- Playability: - 10/10 two trucks, a trailer and a commando center! I know I would love this if I had this back in the late 80's!
- Value: 8/10 - I got the set for €80. I think the asking price from Lego is a little bit to high.
- Overall: 43/50 - It's a real nice set with lot's of playability, the 2 cars are a nice build. But I think it lags a chopper, you have the platform, but it sits empty up there on the roof.
Thanks for reading.
