The Prison Island Starter Set is a new small Police set that intends to be a useful addition to the bigger head set of this Police wave, the Prison Island. This new starter set has less than hundred pieces, ninety two to be exact, and features a small ATV, a water craft, an island with an harbor and four mini-figures: a couple of robbers and two police officers.
The Police ATV is a new model but in my opinion, in terms of beauty, definitely is not the best, most probably due to the front lights combination. Sorry, I simply don’t like it. Dispute that small detail, the size and the main features are the same (the handlers and the clip with the walkie-talkie at the back, for instance) and this time the driver is protected by a bar structure that safes him in case of overturning.
Lego has begun to upload images of the new 2016 sets that, according to the latest news, will be available not in January but, gladly, before Christmas. Among them, there are for now pictures of some of the new city sets.
Among these nine, that you can see below, I must say that I have different feelings about them. The Garbage Truck (60118) is for me a complete disappointment and not even that front mechanism convinced me at all. On the contrary the Ambulance Plane (60116) looks really cool and I’m sure that it will certainly be a must in terms of playability.
Last weekend, a bunch of pictures of the next 2016 wave of sets have been surfing in the internet almost on every place. It’s always pleasant to see the news, even if it is a couple of days later. 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”!
