[Insert debate about raised baseplates]

It's a nice, solid building. And I quite like raised baseplates. But the highlight of this line was the two-seated helicopter 7044, that's easily one of my favourite ever Lego choppers.

I loved this set! So many great play features. I miss the days of baseplates, let alone ones with fun topography.

A fantastic building for just $40! I was never much into the Coast Guard lines but the shaping on them are great.

I picked this up on super clearance at KB Toys I think. Or maybe Wal-Mart. That raised baseplate has a lot of potential that wasn’t really utilized in the set itself, but I’ve hung on to it all these years to maybe one day build properly on it. Lol

An odd quirk about the raised baseplate in this set (originally from Belville) is that it was actually the thickness of a full plate. Still highly specialized, though, and as far as rocky coastal terrain goes I generally prefer more brick-built stuff like the City Prison Island or Ninjago Lighthouse Siege.

World City was pretty quirky, but it had a lot of creative stuff going on and definitely paved the way for the City theme as we know it today!

Lovely plate, I know there was an oil rig type of stuff for the Coat Guard if I am not mistaken.

^ Eventually, but I think it was a few years later.
