    Great edition to your city!

    Written by (TFOL , bronze-rated reviewer) in United Kingdom,

    Hi, our names are Connor, Harry and Harry and we are Professional Lego Reviewers. We also have a Youtube account - Mrconnor2000 - Which has lots of Lego Imformation, Reviews and more so please subscribe and rate this review 5/5.

    Box/Instructions

    The Box had a great front cover and had 4 alternate images on the back showing playability features. it included one main bag which had a smaller bag inside. There was one instruction manuel which had pictures of other related sets on the back.

    Parts

    Lots of New parts were included in this set. They are - The red crowbar that one of the robbers are holding. that new piece is a great piece for any Lego city Police fan and it can be well used in scenes in your City. Next - another new piece is the Bag piece that a robber has on his back. it can hold Lego as shown but it only has room for as much as two 1x2 tiles.

    Minifigures

    The Minifigures in this set included of two robbers and two policemen. The policeman on the buggy has No new items as usual except his torso has been updated a bit so it has a walkie talkie on it and a shiner badge. the other policeman has a cool but unusual new piece - a white cap. It has no printing and we think its a great edition to the police team. The robber on the Left of the box has nothing new except the crowbar which we've already talked about but the robber on the right has a light grey hat and a new torso which is the normal robber torso with a light grey jacket over the top which is really cool!

    The build

    The build only took about 10 minutes to make and it was very fun and exciting to build.

    The completed model

    The completed model was really good and we were happy with our selfs that we bought that set. The completed model has four minifigures, a police buggy and a cash machine. One problem that we had to face though, was the fact there was a sticker! the sticker went on the front of the buggy and said 'Police'. the rest was printed tiles like the cash machine screen. A great little set for anybody and for £8.49 or $9.99, its totally worth it. :)

    Box/Instructions

    The box is small and it comes with 2 bags. It also comes with a instruction booklet. The instructions are easy to follow.

    There are some useful parts in this set. The dog was a nice addition as well as the atm machine. They can be useful for your city.

    Minifigures

    The best things about this set is the number of minifigures you get. You get 4 ( 5 if you include the dog ). You get 2 policemen and you get 2 robbers. The minifigures are common in police sets but this is a cheap way to get alot of minifigures.

    Add Some Space-grit to your Space Police Headquarters

    Written by (AFOL , bronze-rated reviewer) in United States,

    This was an impulse purchase for me. At USD $10, it seemed like a good deal for the amount of minifigures and special parts you get. My collection is exclusively space—so at first my motivation was not clear. I must suffer from SP3 withdrawal syndrome, I thought. But then it was clear—this is a great set for adding space-grubbiness to your current SP3 collection or vignettes. So I will discuss 7279 as a great collection of police-related minifigures for kids and collectors in general, but I will also review the set’s potential in providing additional space-grit to your Space Police setup or MOCs.

    7279 is an awesome set in itself. Here is my argument—in order of importance—for you City collectors and others:

    Play Value

    In a few of my other reviews, I mention one of the primary values of Lego: story. It is easy to judge sets just in terms of how much narrative they will allow a child to spin—the bricks-to-story-ratio (BTSR). 7279 has a high BTSR. The chances of epic struggle are good with this set—the conflict is two vs. two. The cops have the vehicle, but the bad guys have the most useful tool—the crowbar. Given the right brick, you could use it as a lever vs. the vehicle, no? Ha! Now the cops are on foot as well! The ATM is a very simple design, but provides a great atmosphere for a city tale of twilight robbery. And that flashlight might be used to check under the hood when the vehicle breaks down. Also, for the pro-Lego family on a budget, this set is an inexpensive way to introduce police-themed stories until better days show themselves.

    Rare Parts

    The blue and white 1x2 “police” tile is printed—for those of us who detest stickers, this is a nice surprise. The red crowbar as of this review only shows up in four sets—and 7279 is a super cheap way of obtaining it for your collection. The German Shepard figure provides the same value—the best way to obtain this figure. The tan open backpack is also just as rare but is the coolest piece of minifigure equipment since jetpacks. It is super durable and allows the carrying of cash; true, but it also allows the carrying of many other items—those rural denizens at the edge of your City will get much use out of it. What do they carry home from the store? And the hikers? A bottle of water and sandwich?

    As Supplement

    I’m sure any police headquarters could use a few more diligent cops, and this set is good for two. And any self-respecting crime syndicate could always use a few more henchmen. I’m not sure how rare the four faces are in this set—but you get four different ones. So if you need to hire a few more cops and robbers, this is the set.

    Space-grit

    I own Space Police Headquarters (5985) and gave it a glowing review—it is a great set. But somehow it seems too clean for my vision of a Space Police outpost on the outer rim of the asteroid belt around 47 Ursae Majoris. The best Science Fiction tells us that Space and the Future is just as grubby as Earth and Today: think the terra-forming station in Aliens or the sulfur-covered Discovery in 2010: The Year We Make Contact or any scene from Blade Runner. The future might have flying cars, but it also has discarded desk chairs and half-eaten donuts.

    So add a few garbage cans and 7279 to your SP3 setup or MOC. Do all sectors in Galaxy City have the same budget? No. Some cops are forced to patrol without the dark bluish-grey tactical suit we know and love. And place a future-retro white crash helmet on your VPR pilot—ah, they fight crime with what they have. The small police vehicle in the set reminds me of the little quad vehicles used by local agencies in the US to patrol public beaches. If you squint just a bit (and switch black parts for blue) it looks like the Lego moon buggies in SP3 colors. It looks to me like it could handle—if the gravity is right—the slushy frozen-methane on the lake shores so common in Beta Quadrant. So if your space cops cannot afford another VPR for patrols, this little crater-hopper is probably next best thing. Place the grinning gold-tooth head on the body of your sector commander and now you have a commander who has been around the sector a few solar cycles—he has a murky past and thinks up clever space traps for Craniac. The possibilities with 7279 are endless.

    A challenge: try “spacifying” these cops and robbers yourself with non-space parts. That Shepard needs a jet pack…
