One of the perennial sub-themes of LEGO City is about saving minifig citizens from devastating fires. Kids and even many adult LEGO fans like fire trucks, so LEGO regularly redesigns and re-releases LEGO City Fire Rescue set. While the sets are mostly aimed at younger kids, some of the sets could be incorporated into the city dioramas of teens and adult builders.
This year, we got five new LEGO City Fire Rescue sets. The two smallest ones are the #60410 LEGO City Fire Rescue Motorcycle and the #60411 LEGO City Fire Rescue Helicopter for $9.99 each. These are small starter sets meant for play, but they are well designed. I especially like the little helicopter. Small flyers like this can be hung over a LEGO city with fishing lines to add visual interest. Both sets are available at the LEGO City section of the Online LEGO Shop.
A bit larger action-oriented set is the #60412 LEGO City 4×4 Fire Truck with Rescue Boat for $34.99. Again, the design is solid, but nothing too special here. I do like the simple but effective tent design using two flat panels on hinges. If you want to check it out, it’s available at the LEGO City section of the Online LEGO Shop.
The #60413 LEGO City Fire Rescue Plane is one of the largest sets in the new collection, but the price is still an affordable $54.99. It features twin engines, a working water drop function at the top, two working water launchers, an opening rear cargo door, plus a dual cockpit. The three minifigs are a pilot, an extinguisher operator, and a cool jetpack firefighter. The set also includes a small wildlife scene on fire. I’m certain this set is going to be popular with kids, and adult builders might enjoy the attractive twin engine design. Available at the LEGO City section of the Online LEGO Shop.
The largest set in the collection this year is the #60414 LEGO City Fire Station with Fire Truck for $79.99. You will notice right away the interesting modern design with those curved and sloping walls and angled up-and over style garage doors. The numbered gates (created with tiles) are a nice touch. Inside, there is a control center, kitchenette, sleeping quarters, an equipment area, and of course the two garage bays. The fire truck is compact and includes a ladder on a turntable, and there is also a small drone. The five minifig are accompanied by a fire dog wearing a printed vest. It will be interesting how LEGO fans receive the unusual architecture of this fire station. You can find more details on it at the LEGO City section of the Online LEGO Shop.
