In reference to the new Race Car, I agree that it's one of the nicest build designs I've ever built, using such small and unique parts. If there's anything I don't like about it, it's the spoiler assembly-- the robot arms just aren't working for me. The spoiler sits too far away from the body itself. Otherwise bravo TLG,

EVERYTHING IS OVERPRICED I MEAN AWESOME!!!

It's definitely nice to have around.

My video reviews for 60056 and 60059 are also up now. Nice sets, still not a whole lot of detail packed into except for the Logging Truck. Both were still definitely worth picking up and I recommend them.
My final review will be Friends so that will be posted elsewhere on this board:

I got 60047 Police Station (my first!) for christmas and just finished putting it together. A few thoughts (usually I build modulars):

What I liked:
- The blue/white colour scheme and the architectural style in general, especially of the building of the right
- Lots of tiling on/around the building reminding of the modular buildings
- Tons of playability with the vehicles, helicopter, cell block, etc.
- Some nice mini-builds like water cooler, tool holders, wash basins, fire hydrant, etc.
- Nice selection of parts, including four of the new 1 x 2 jumper plates in white (http://www.bricklink...tem.asp?P=15573)
- Real sturdy build, one can lift up the whole complex one-handed without problems

What I didn't really care for:
- Lots of stickers which I haven't applied yet
- For an Orwellian prison tower like this one, there are way too many escape options available... :wink:

All in all, a really nice set, which I will MOD to fit into my modular town at the next opportunity!

I find it humorous that the logging truck comes with one minifig scale tree trunk and two tiny little trees. :laugh:

I'm interested in the Passenger Train set. Arctic can be cool, though! Maybe it's Polar Xxpress! :grin:

Arctic. That's the LAST sub-theme I was expecting to see again! Not that I'm complaining, but Arctic was pretty niche the first time around — it didn't even carry LEGO Town branding in the United States, instead being marketed as its own separate theme.

It's been about 15 years since the last Arctic sets, and that was back in the late 90s, when set design tended to be pretty lackluster. I'm sure the new sets will be radically different, and I can't wait to see what they have in store! Hoping for a recolor of the bear mold from the Forest Police sets as a polar bear!

ARCTIC!!!!

Holy crp! Were getting new Agents sets, new City Arctic sets, a classic Space set over in the movie stuff, Star Wars is mostly OT with no signs of JarJar, and they've started to give us stores and commercial buildings in creator?

You all would tell me if I had actually had a stroke and was lying here drooling and imagining all of this, right?

And yet it seems oddly topical. First mission, "rescue trapped boatload of frozen hippie's before they can be devoured by rabid penguins."

Yes! Arctic is back again, my all time favourite sub-theme. The research lab and crawler sound interesting.

It's funny how Lego CITY is spending a third of it's time.....not in a town or a city.......we've had farming, space, mining, forestry and next......a polar research team.....what next ?
I feel the city designers are losing focus or worse their collective minds. Not that I don't mind the set list......being a city nut.....I now collect almost every city set and the wife hardly ever notices it ! :laugh:
We have gone back to a slim line of sets being released for mid-year......only LegoWorld where the surprise big set is first shown off might be the purists saving grace. :wink:

Thanks for posting, menad.

This will indeed be a happy year if there are new train sets! :wub_drool:
The passenger train comes with fewer bricks (610) than older sets (7938 got 669 bricks), the other two sets come with more that what we are used to :moar:  (7898 - 856, 7939 - 839, 3677 - 831, 7937 - 361).
Still no decent train station in sight. Hope this upcoming set will be more like 7997 than 7937.

Now it's waiting for photos again... :hmpf:
