Ok, I know we’ve gotten TV crews at least once...maybe twice before? Is this the third? Funny, for how many police and fire sets Lego has made over the years, it doesn’t seem like they come up very often on here.

Wish if more recent City or Friends sets come with some TV program set. It feels weird that LEGO TV crew are mostly seen in LEGO media or cartoon shows but scarcely represented in physical al sets.

I used to buy sets every month with my allowance. This was one of them back in the 80's. To tell the truth I didn't like it that much, but the toy store had very limited selection of Legos and this one was the only one I could afford. I still have all the pieces but I chose to use them in some other MOC.

Such nostalgia.

Oh, the memories. This was the first set I got that had that camera piece, and the only set I ever got that had that hinge-turntable piece.

It has been said but I dare to say it again: would be nice to see something like this these days. More variety in City, please..

@Yamaki: I actually have no idea if kids would be familiar with a camera car like this, or even if they’re still in use with how much both camera and automotive technologies have improved in the last three decades. I think a lot of TV news stations have switched over to dash cams for a lot of stories.

But more news media related sets would definitely be pretty cool, especially considering how newsworthy all the raging fires, police chases, prison breaks, big construction projects, and research expeditions in LEGO City would be!

Heartlake City, at least, has one TV news related set: https://brickset.com/sets/41056-1/Heartlake-News-Van
