Lego #30002 Police Boat & #30010 Fire Chief

Name: Police Boat #30002 & Fire Chief #30010
Line: Lego - City
Year: February 2010

Price: $2.99 (each)

Thanks to Adam Pawlus over @ it was brought to my attention that Target had already put out 4 new Lego sets (2 City & 2 Star Wars) in their newly set Easter section. I'm a sucker for small, cheap City themed Lego sets so I had to check these out.

We'll start off by looking at the Police Boat. It consists of 30 pieces. It's a very small and simple set by design, but a very nice set. The colors are almost all traditional blue and white. One of things I like best about the boat are the controls. You may expect to find a steering wheel, but instead of the more traditional controls you'll find 2 black levers. They look like wrenches, but when attached to the bar piece they make convincing steering controls. The engine is nicely constructed. I'm not sure I've ever seen the piece used on the top of the engine.

Another feature about the boat that is a nice touch is the spot light that clips onto the left side of the boat. Minifigure is your traditional police officer. Nothing we haven't seen already.

Now we'll shift our focus to the Fire Chief. It consists of 31 pieces. This is my least favorite of the two sets, but this one isn't a complete throw away. First off all I would call this more of a Fire ATV than car as you can tell from the pictures. It's a very small and compact set, but the wheels freely move without problems and the water cannon on the back is different. You can position the fireman mini figure forwards like he is driving, or backwards like he is operating the water cannon. Mini figure pretty standard. I really can't say much else about this set other than it's what you would expect out of a $3.00 toy.


For $2.99 you really can't go wrong with these sets. They are very easy to construct and have charm, esp. the Police Boat. If you could only afford one set however go with the Police set. It just feels more well rounded of the two.
