The £9 mech makes me think of Power Miners.

 

The admiral/gold leader figure feels Solomon Blaze esque.

 

The interstellar ship feels like a modern Space Police 5981, and the Jetpack feels like a sleeker 30141 from Alien Conquest.

 

The base is the sort of thing you'd expect from a Sci-Fi in-house theme

I don’t think it’s only City theme  to have Space subme. But you are right. Some sets do remind me of old good sci-fi themes.

I agree (especially with the confirmed two additional sets coming later in the year)! I feel like we will either get a new full Space theme by around 2026, or space will be a larger subtheme of City (like Stuntz) for the next 2-3 years.

City is the only one to have such an extensive space line, though; other themes just have one or two space-related sets.

Recently built Burger Truck that was my first encounter with Paper bags.

Then I built the Interstellar Spaceship, which had Plastic bags, but also 2 pages of instruction were somehow partly glued together (still readable after seperation as the small areas of page damage was only on the background blue) but first time I've seen something like that.

As long as we get a new color for the city astronauts like Purple or Maroon, I'll be happy

Oh wow! I still got the plastic bags for the box that my burger truck came in.

I think it’s nice to see plastic bags phrase out slowly but steady. Paper bags are not yet available widely arss themes.

That's what I said. I remember saying that when I was trying to look for City magazine. They sell every type of Lego magazine in the US except for the City one. Which is unfair in my opinion.

Found the police polybag (the little buggy with the wanted poster of the currently still missing 60416 set) , pretty decent, and I especially like the new neon torso design, which even has a reflective checkerboard print in silver at the back.

Also comes with a small single stand piece to put poster on , not shown on the product image,  6258820.jpg

Built the 60415: Police Car and Muscle Car Chase set, and noticed they are bigger then the usual cars of previous few years, longer and larger wheels. (and don't really fit on the 2021 Car Transporter)

The most interesting part is that they are the exact same size and wheelbase as the 2019 Speed Champions (before the switch to 8 wide in 2020) . 

I don't have 60396: Modified Race Cars (2023) yet but looks to use the same scale as Speed Champions as well as the wheelbase on the purple car is definately much longer then 4 stud, and also used those larger wheels.

It makes the upcoming race car / transport even more interesting to look out to.

I wonder if that set will use the Speed Champion scale or just a "normal" City scale , as both are used at the same time (the car in 60406: Race Car and Car Carrier Truck is pretty much regular City length with 4 stud wheelbase and regular wheels instead of SC wheels, the truck does use the larger wheels).

Maybe City will have a mix of car sizes , which isn't bad, a couple 6-wide unlicensed Speed Champion cars styled a year would be nice, at the €20 price point for 2 cars especially, actually cheaper then actual pre 2020 Speed Champions were, and current Speed Champions got price bumped to €27 for a single car now (obviously larger, heavier, licensed and more detailed)

I skipped collecting the 8 wide cars as I think they are too big (for City), but I understand why they are popular as there's obviously a lot more possible , and with licensed cars, a lot more realism and detail (and impressive alternative builds as well), overall they aren't bad, just get quite pricey now, from being €20 at first, then €25, and now €27 for single cars.

I see no sense in buying Speed Champions (even as a gift for kids) anymore. Not every shape is recognizable and they rely too heavily on stickers. Bburago cars are far better and even cheaper.

Yeah, I really don't think the recent City cars have been any worse then 6 wide speed champions (talking about 2020-2024 City Cars), most have been a bit smaller, but that's fine as some are meant to fit on the Car Transporter set for example.

Some are simpler, some are more detailed, but that's even the case within the speed champion theme, with so many different styles of cars.

60415: Police Car and Muscle Car Chase are about 4 stud longer then most of the 2020-2023 City Cars, but I don't think they look crazy oversized.

I don't have 8 wide Speed Champions to compare with in terms of length, the only 8 wide cars I tend to have are 3-in-1 sets. (car from 31108: Caravan Family Holiday can seat 4 minifigs but I might make a variant of the lighthouse alternate build from that set instead soon)

That's why I think City should go back to doing the 4 stud wide thing for automobiles. They used to do so well. I've seen compacts, sports cars, roadsters, SUVs, police cars and limos done from 4 studs by Lego. I think with the 4207 garage, they did a minivan build along with an ambulance in the 2012 hospital set.

I actually prefer six wide vehicles. So much so I’m looking into how to modify the very few four wide cars into six wide cars.
