My choice for 2005 is this fire station. It has an improper vechicle (a car not a truck. The station itself is not sturdy. To me, the whole set feels juniorized and the worst fire station TLG ever made.

A HOSPITAL ON A STEEP HILL? Easily the worst set of 2006. No ambulance ( atv instead.) I would not want to be on that open air helicopter! Odd baseplate choice. However, the hospitals interior is fine. Very juniorized. These reasons explain my choice.

I know many people are going to disagree with me on this choice. I chose this because 2008 was a great year for LEGO City. But there are practical points. Who fishes on private property? The " platform" is not a platform in some parts. I do not own this set, but it looks very, very unstable with those support beams. Also, there should be more Coast Guard Officers. Why do we need this set when we have 7379? All of these reasons support this choice.

There are pros AND cons about this set. Why do we need another crane? We already have so many. There should be at least 1 more minifig in this set. The worker is basically the same one in other sets. Price OK, could have benn $5 cheaper.

Are we supposed to fight fires with these vechicles ? You get an improper truck, small boat and a quad bike. Good luck fighting fires with this TLG.

Fishing boat is by far the worst 2011 set. 64 pieces for $20? Juniorized piece of junk. Do minifigs have superpowers to jump up to controls? Do not get this set.

Price, price, price. Who wants this for 17.99 USD? For $2 more you can get a good set. Watch brickshowtv review to find out more.

2013 was a tough year. This has 1 coast guard member. He is the same guy you get in other sets. Really no different than 60013. Why realease 2 planes. Anyways, part 2 coming soon!
