ER0L posted a topic in LEGO Town[Edit] List of annual Police Interceptors, now Emergency Vehicles 2011 see https://www.flickr.c...157628467098541 2012 see https://www.flickr.c...157629998167606 2013 see http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=80154 2014 this thread 2015 this thread 2016 this thread 2017 this thread 2018 this thread 2019 this thread [/edit] Hi all, a little late this year, but here it is, the Police Interceptor 2014: It was quite obvious that the Police Interceptor of the year 2014 would have to be an LCS vehicle. Furthermore, since the future town will be illuminated I was wondering if at least some of the vehicles can be lightenend, too - it would look quite awkward if cars without lights were cruising the town at night. It proved to be possible without any foreign parts - via a combination of 9 Volt and PowerFunctions stuff. Functions: self-steering front axle emergency lights (9 V) siren (9 V) headlights (PF) backlights (PF) 100% Lego. The car weighs over 200 grams (battery included) but is an excellent mover on the LCS. Credits: derjoe whose "brick & tile" car building style proved to be most appropriate when dealing with lighting Brucewaynelego-Toyshansolo who introduced me into the "9 Volt world". Rear: From below: Hopefully the PI 2014 will be the first of a series of illuminated "night" cars like ambulances, fire engines or stretch limos. Some more pics on my Flickr. Thanks for looking! In action on the LCS layout:
wesyr posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingHi guys This is my first review of Technic set in english. This is second Pull Back set this year. It is not as nice as 42046, but still I like it. 42047 is also neat, nicely built, color polished, but lacks character. Clearly, the TLG decided to give models to play cops and thieves. Series: Technic Year: 2016 No: 42047 Pcs: 185 PPP: 0,11$ Model Weight: 0,212 kg Set weight: 0,318 kg Model B: yes, but you need second set Price: £17,99 / $19,99 / 19,99€ Inventory: - Bricklink - Brickset Box Box looks very ordinary. Decorated in dark colors which are characteristic of the series Technic. What first strikes the eye are lemon elements of the car - bumper, wheels and some stickers (alternating with blue). Box measurments are 26 cm x 14 cm x 6 cm. The back of the box shows the alternative model, which is formed from a combination of components of the kits 42046 and 42047, which are both of this year's car Pull Back. Inside the box we can find: manual 2 bags with bricks 2 white liftarms Pull Back motor stickers sheet Manual has 52 pages with 49 build steps. There are also parts list and some advertisements. There are no new parts. Two of them are in ne colours: Lime Wheel 30.4mm D. x 20mm with No Pin Holes and Reinforced Rim - 4 pcs Lime Technic, Liftarm 3 x 3 L-Shape Thin - 2 pcs (i know - it was used in 2 sets in 2000 and in 2001) Build Forty-nine steps in the construction manual is nothing especially demanding, but giving a little fun. Building process would not call boring. Purpose model for children from 7 to 14 years is fine, though I would set the upper limit of a maximum of 12 years. Spare parts Finished model Podsumowanie 42047-1 Police Interceptor is a very neat vehicle a little shorter than 42046, but higher. The colors are pretty, but the excess white color gives the impression of boring. Stickers a little break the whites. Car is very nicely finished, there are no sharp edges. I like also the lemon wheels. It looks attractive. Pull Back mechanism is very strong - on slippery surfaces (panels, tiles, countertop) wheel spin immediately. On a more rough surface of the car takes off as it should. However, it is a little unstable - only when jumping - model usually lands on the side or "back". Despite these minor shortcomings I consider this set successful. Pros: + Lots of useful parts - mainly liftarms + Nice color + Lets you play the races (you must have at least two models of Pull Back) Cons - Alternative model requires the purchase of the second set - Alternative model is ugly (but it's a matter of taste) - Wheels spin - A little too much white elements Bonus Model B Read more at http://legopo30.blog...L6SUVfQAx9Vh.99
Hi all, at the end of 2011 there was the first Police Interceptor, and there was a second one in 2012, which was derived from the Tumbler. Now I thought it might be a nice tradition to build one Police Interceptor each year. The PI 2013 is derived from the Chevy Impala, see http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=78902: It fits 2 cops (with caps) at the front and one suspect at the rear. At first I thought the new cop caps wouldn't fit, but then I modified the roof a little and now they fit, although the cops do not sit fully straight, but for me it's okay: Here you can see it in action. The street needs some traffic stuff, and I'd rather have brickbuilt motorbikes, but well ... Thanks for looking, c&c welcome as usual.
