If I had to choose one of this batch, I’d personally go with the Rescue Helicopter. The rest really aren’t my figurative cup of tea.

I think the cars seem pretty weak, the heli looks good, and the boat is just okay.

I love the police pursuit. It looks great. The others, not so much.

my personal opinion is that all of them are SO BAD THEY WOULD NOT MAKE IT THROUGH IDEAS.. thumbs down..

Honestly, only the helicopter looks decent.

Little Technic sets always have an uphill battle, but the copter looks pretty good! Turning one knob to spin both rotors is a feature I wish some City sets would take.

@crayxmp: Then it's a good thing Ideas only represents a fraction of the kinds of products Lego offers. Ideas proposals tend to be high-end models aiming at adults and families, not these sorts of bread-and-butter entry-level sets that appeal primarily to kids. I never would've gotten into a theme like Technic if not for cheap sets like this (though since that was the 90s they tended to be more rudimentary sets like #8205 or #8213)

I agree with Lyichir. If you were a ten year old kid thinking about your first Technic set, these would be great.

Glad to see that the annual pair of pull back cars continues! I'm not terribly fond of the Technic build experience; those 2 cars every year scratch my "Technic itch" AND yields some fun cars to race!!!

The boat is actually quite nice for an entry set, but I prefer the helicopter. What I find interesting is that the stretcher of the helicopter is actually a City part. More in general, the size of the copter is pretty close to minifig scale (the boat as well). I wouldn't be surprised if the whole model is easily convertible to a Technic based City/minifig scale model. Would add functionality to a "City" helicopter never seen in an official Lego City helicopter set!

I can’t wait to see the images for the 2019 Ninjago sets. Hopefully they don’t ruin the look of past seasons.

That boat's pretty cool, but, seeing as I haven't got a technic set in more than a year, I'll probably pass.

Lepin, is that you?

The helicopter's the only decent one out of the bunch.

I love that this is the third (or 4th if you count the hovercraft) Technic boat set that we've seen in the past 2 years. Before that (not counting one or two hovercraft sets), the last proper boat released in Technic was in 1992! It still seems like a rare treat to get to see one today.

Yep, it's technic.

You can't take a bad Formula 1 car, slap some police stickers and a light bar on it, and call it Police Pursuit! That's just inane!

I have been collecting the Pull-Back Racers from the beginning as they are so much fun, but in the past couple of years, their design hasn't been as good as it used to be. Don't get me wrong, they are still fun to play with, but they are getting smaller and not as good looking as the 2013-2016 models.

Heli looks very nice, i must have it.
Mountains on the box are pretty cool :)

These sets are perfect for my son. Not too advanced or large technic. Thanks for making these...

@Zrath: My general sense with the Technic pull-back cars has always been that they're more in line with the craziness and action-packed intensity of the mid-2000s Racers sets than the emphasis on realism that tends to characterize the Technic design philosophy. For example, compare with https://brickset.com/sets/8221-1/Storming-Enforcer (featuring a police bike with flame decals) or https://brickset.com/sets/8182-1/Monster-Crushers (featuring a police… monster truck).

Consider the lower target audience for these sets and the greater focus on playability, I suspect that the police/criminal theme of these two sets is mostly as a play starter. This way rather than just staging one-on-one races as though they were two generic cars whose imaginary drivers had no moral alignment, motivations, or personalities, they immediately stand out as adversaries on opposite sides of the law, with all the potential for chase scenes, collisions, and ludicrous action movie style stunts that those types of narratives lend themselves so well to.

But there's no doubt that they're not really geared towards more serious-minded or experienced Technic builders, so much as to introduce kids with more play- and narrative-driven interests to pure Technic building so that by the time they ARE interested in more serious mechanical builds they have enough familiarity and experience that this type of building doesn't feel alien to them. Sort of like the purpose that other younger-skewing Technic series like Throwbots, Roboriders, Cyber-Slam/Competition, classic Bionicle, and the more Technic-based Racers sets were often meant to serve.

Whether or not you care for these types of sets, I can say from personal experience that they do a good job getting people interested in Technic who might not have otherwise cared about it. Considering my interests as an adult are STILL geared mainly to story-driven fantasy and sci-fi adventure themes, I doubt I'd have had any interest in purchasing or building stuff like the Technic Cargo Plane, 24 Hours Race Car, or Bucket Wheel Excavator if it hadn't been from formative experiences with stuff like Cyber-Slam, Throwbots, Bionicle, and the old Technic-based Star Wars droids getting me deeply invested in Technic and showing me how enjoyable the building process could be before I even hit my teenage years.
