No LEGO city can function within the law without the perfect Police station. The new Creator Expert Police Station Lego Set 10278 brings these facilities to your current LEGO town set up with a familiar modular approach. As you would expect, there is a lot to discover across the buildings and lots of fun to be had.
The police are ready to take on a criminal right under their noses.
Let’s start with the Police station itself. This three-storey building is a gorgeous old stone building with big glass double doors at the top of the staircase. There is a sense of history and a standard for the three cop minifigure to live up to. Their facilities include a jail cell, a camera set up to take mug shots of their suspects, and an area for crucial detective work. The investigation board with the photos and strings is a nice touch.
These facilities will come in handy as there is a criminal on the loose in the local area. In fact, he is right next door stealing donuts from the shop via a hatch under the bed. It is a sneaky plan and one that is great fun to try and put together. Boys and girls of all ages can help with this set and appreciate the fun story-line. The criminal looks the part and has a tool to grab the donuts. There is also a series of fire escapes at the back of the building so he can try and sneak away. This adds to the 3D feel of this modular set and the complexity.
Naturally, the friendly doughnut store owner will be more than grateful when the cops finally put the criminal behind bars and secure her store. The shop has an attractive color scheme with trays of tasty treats for the cops on their break. On the other side of the station is a little newsstand where characters to catch up on the local news. Other interesting details in this set include the bird nesting on the window ledge, the bench, shrubs, and the billboard on the side
With so many characters, bricks, and creative elements, the Creator Expert Police Station Lego Set 10278 should entertain builders for hours.
This set isn’t going to be easy. There are almost 3000 pieces in total across the different floors and buildings, as well as the exterior details. While it may be a bit of a challenge, you can be sure that this 18+ set will also be highly rewarding and the creative storyline just adds to the fun for the whole family.
