And it was with mixed feelings that I took a look at my favorite Lego Theme, City, particularly on its head line sets.

The first disappointment is that, with the exception of a small racing boat, for now there are only available images about Fire and city sets. The second one is that among these my sudden thought was “it’s more of the same”!lego-city-2016-60110-60130
