LEGO City Mobile Command Center 60139

Hey everyone, this is my first LEGO City review. This is an awesome set. It’s mainly for playability but looks great displayed. The last time LEGO created a mobile police command was in 2007, (set 7743) and this is a huge improvement. Everything is updated, the minifigures, vehicles and features.

Set Name: LEGO City Mobile Command Center
Set Number: 60139

Pieces: 374
Minifigures: 4 plus 1 dog
Price: $39.99
Release Date: January 1, 2017

One cool thing that LEGO started doing the past couple years is creating female characters. In this set we have 2 male and 2 female characters. The first male officer is just the new generic figure, the only thing I would add to him is a few more tools on his belt. He has a walkie talkie, but it would be cool if he had a flashlight or handcuffs printed on. The female motorcycle rider is super cool. Her jacket has lots of detail. One thing I would add is a police logo on her helmet.

The male crook is pretty unique. He has a nice curved mustache which we haven’t really seen before. The female crook is okay, her torso looks off, the red tie does not look like a tie and I’m not a fan of the gray jumpsuit. The dog is the same style dog LEGO has used for years. By now I would have expected some different color and style dogs.

The red 4-wheeler is pretty basic, not much to say about it besides the fact that I wish the dark gray chain could wrap around something so you could drive the vehicle around without it dragging. Without the chain attached, it’s a nice strong vehicle to have fun driving around. The motorcycle is definitely an improvement from the past versions. You can put some police equipment on the sides so the figure can be prepared wherever they drive. When a figure is placed on the motorcycle they are perfectly slanted so they are not too far down or too far up.

Now for the main mobile command truck. The tailor can unhook from the front of the truck. The truck has a jail cell, computer area and an area to hold a motorcycle. I love the front part of the truck with the detailed black grate in the front and the black side mirrors. However, I do wish LEGO made a custom piece making the the side mirrors look more realistic and not look super bulky and big. Between the front and trailer of the truck is some extra space where they added traffic cones. I think this is a great use of extra space and makes it especially easy to detach the trailer from the front.

Moving on to the trailer part of the truck. The jail cell is very spacious, it can fit up to 3 minifigures. The satellite on top could have been a little more complex. The middle part of the trailer folds up which is neat. Inside is a computer with a baby screen and some detailed police notes on the two white walls. The end has a spot for the motorcycle and it has a ramp to swiftly leave the truck. The motorcycle can detach by a 2×2 flat plate with a stud in the center. On the truck, I would have liked to have seen some more police stickers, specifically on the back and sides towards the end. I also would have liked to seen a license plate sticker since it is a vehicle.

Great set. Lots of play features and you can be creative with the storyline. Given this set is over 10 years old, it was due for a major upgrade from the 2007 model and I think LEGO delivered. I rate this set a 9/10. I created a LEGO stop motion with this set, please check out my YouTube channel https://youtu.be/5lPy–A6A-M and let me know what you think. I’d love to hear what your favorite minifigure is in the comment section.

First Post! LEGO Star Wars X-Wing Starfighter

Hello, My name is Matthew and this is my first blog post. One of my favorite and most iconic ships in Star Wars is the X-wing. Before I get in my review I will share some basic details about this awesome set. 

Set Name: X-Wing StarFighter 
Set Number: 75218
Pieces: 730
Minifigures: 4
Retail Price: $69.99
Release Date: August 1, 2018

My first thoughts when I look at this set is “Wow, this is amazing”. One word to describe this set is clean, it has a modern sleek look. 

First I will begin with the minifigures

I love the 2 pilots, the printing on the front chest are really clear and detailed. The new helmets have the orange eye shield attached and is a little bulky but still look really cool. I think if LEGO could make them a tad bit thinner they would be perfect. 

R2-D2 looks amazing as always, every time they update him he gets better and better. The only thing I would like to see is some back printing on the other side of his body just to make him even more realistic. 

The R2-Q2 droid is a decent minifigure. Again I would like to see some back printing on the body just like R2-D2. In my opinion the main flaw with this droid is the head and leg color does not match the body. It just looks really odd since both the grey are super similar. 

Now onto the best part, the X-Wing.  I love this ship. The wings are super easy to open and close. I like how they used both stud shooters and  spring-loaded shooters. From outside the cockpit of the ship looks really nice, but I am not a big fan of the inside. I don’t like how they used a traditional seat instead of the normal back piece that we have seen in previous Starfighters. Also I don’t like the fire extinguisher addition. When putting the pilot into the cockpit the handle of the extinguisher interferes with the helmet. Instead of the fire extinguisher I would rather have a spot for the pilots pistol to rest. 

Moving onto the engines and wings. The engines are okay. I am not a huge fan of the gray barrel piece as it just looks off. I wish the end of the engine was a bit thicker. Other than that I love it. The wings are amazing, the only thing I would add is some small sticker detail on the slanted white piece leading up to the engine. 

Building this set took me about an hour. It got kinda boring and repetitive making 4 wings. But other than that I had a great time. The final product is amazing though. It is perfect for display and play. I highly recommend it, and definitely worth the money. Overall I would give this set an 8.5/10.

Feel free to share your thoughts on the X-Wing in the comment section and let me know what you thought about the review.
