Out of this set, I just like this set, period. There are 4 minifigures, 3 vehicles(a police car,a bank van,and a motorcycle), a bank, and a TON of useful bricks, like gold bars and money pieces.
- The set is special edition
- The security bank van is well made
- Love the way the crook's face is
- The ATM falls and breaks(good for robbery videos)
- Some bricks are common
- The building took me 3 hours
- It would be better with another police car and police officer
- The van can turn into an airport van, with capacity to hold 4 suitcases
- The van can also be turned into a police dog van, with the capacity to fit 2 dogs perfectly
- If wanted, the bank can be more normal if the slide was removed

This set is a must have, I have seen no flaws in its amazing design. In the set you get a Police car (No. 6, which fits in with the rest of the 2011 police range), a red dirtbike (for the robber), a money truck (which carries all the money) and of course the bank (with a safe).
Now I will talk about each sub-build individually.
The first sub-build, which built the police car and dirtbike, with police officer and robber. The car was a really nice build as it has a little shelf behind the police officer (Personally somehwere to put his radio when he's driving), the dirtbike was a standard dirt bike build. The robber who has a rucksack has already stolen 2 bits of money (Though for some reason not already in the bank) looks a bit dim, but if he can rob a bank by himself, that's very imprssive, the police officer is a standard build with all police sets.
The second sub-build built the moeny truck, and security guard person. The truck is amazing, it could be used for so much more than money. The only downside to the truck is the holes at the sides of the wheels (Very hard to see), you don't want the money geting wet.
The third and final sub-build is the bank with bank worker. The bank has been laid out really well, and there isnt a cramped feel like other buildings. The ATM / Cash machine is a really nice feature, and because of how it is built it aslo means if the robber was to take it away, he would get a free clock. The safe is massive as it covers about half of the upper floor space. the robber can eneter the bank from a pipe on the side of the building and the roof.
- 3 vehicles
- 4 minifigures
- Well built bank
- The playability features
- The price is a bit steep, but deffinetly worth it
- No managers office
Now the final thing you should know is, Where did the criminal get the red dirtbike? He could have stolen it, but there are no places to buy dirtbikes in Lego City, perhaps it was imported. Only time will tell where he obtained it from.

This set is without a doubt one of my favourite sets ever. You get a good amount of bricks for your money which build up in to three models (not counting the crossbike). I will give short description of each.
This is actually the only thing I'm not a really big fan of. It just seems a bit long for a small car. But I guess for those who don't have a lot of policecars or the kids who prefer playability it's a decent catch. For me personally, a normal car with a potential customer for the bank would have been nice.
Simply put a wonderfull model. It looks heavy, sturdy and carries a respectable amount of loot for the crook. It's build up from a lot of parts. Furthermore, it could be stripped down to a wonderfull template for any kind of delivery van.
The bank looks the part from the outside. It really is a sturdy construction which gives it a nice, tall and office-like look. Just like you'd expect from a bank. inside you'll find lots of details and great playability.
Great value for money, great set, highly recommended.

This set is excelent; in my opinion the best City set of 2011!
The Bank and the Armored MoneyCar are elegants, compact and full of resources, the top part opens for the thief, just neat.
It just fits nice on a desk or a table as on any stand. The piece colors are great, there are a good amount of sticks. The Bike is neat too and the Thief have a backpack to put the stolen cash :P. The Safe is Awesome and the place you put the cash and gold is neat too.
Here on Brasil lego is VERY expensive, like 3-5 times more expensive than US. But i got a 50% discount on this set so pay only 90 Reais (~51 US Dollars today), but this was the only one i got with same price as USA, others are much expensive.
The only little thing i did liked very much are the big pieces of the bank wall, i would prefer if they came with a bit more smaller pieces.
Sorry my english :)

As my kid will be 4 soon, I decided to familiarize him with the Lego bricks. Bank & Money Transfer is first larger playset I bought and my son loves it. I paid 134pln (apx $40) and I think it's a very good price.
- Great value for money (1 building, 3 vehicles, 4 minifigs)
- Solid and sturdy, good for a small kid
- Great playabilty
- No doors in cars, (believe me, it's a great disappointment for a 4 year old kid)
- No businessman minifig
It's great set, we having a great time playing with it. I'm totally recomending it.
