Okay, most of you who keep up with LEGO release dates will wonder why I am reviewing a set that came out in 2007 during the holiday season. Well, the answer is simple: LEGO City Police sets are popular. Plus it’s still in production and still available.
People, in general, still love cop shows and documentaries, so why should the toy world be any different? Lots of folks love the intrigue of committing and solving crimes. Hopefully, most of you are more interested in solving than committing though.
So, here we have the still-in-production LEGO 7741 Police Helicopter with 94 pieces, and it retails for $10.99 through Shop.LEGO.com.
I picked this one up at Target for about $8.80 on sale, and it was well worth it. This one has some really nice parts, not just for the model it’s meant for, but also if you want to make a nice airplane or spaceship MOC. This set includes one police helicopter pilot minifig, one sheet of stickers (which give you the choice of putting “POLICE”, or the German “POLIZEI” on the completed model), nice rotor blades, a rare landing skid, pursuit camera, and a couple of mailbox pieces used for storing the set’s handcuffs
