Click for largerLEGO World City - Police & Rescue Coast Watch HQ (7047)
Police & Rescue Fire Command Craft (7046)

by Lando Da Pimp

Growing up, the only LEGO sets I remember owning were the space sets and the LEGO town set. Now in 2004, LEGO continues with their roots releasing the World City sets. So lets take a look at sets 7047 and 7046

Click for largerSet 7047 is the Police and Rescue Coast Watch Headquarters. This set comes with a specialized base plate of the land and water reminiscent from a Jack Stone set. The building is similar to the [World City] police Head Quarters. On the lowest level of the building is a mission-briefing screen. Using two transparent pieces with stickers portraying separate rescue missions (drowning victim, exploding boat) these pieces are placed behind a display. Other objects on the floor include two terminals, and a hat rack. The second floor contains more terminals with a set of binoculars. The top level contains a set of terminals with a rotating chair for a figure to sit. The roof has two radar dishes and antenna to help accomplish the missions. Small little details like the searchlight always help make the set that more special.

The rescue helicopter and the boat can both rescue individuals. The copter has its own landing pad while the raft with the stretcher can dock.

Click for largerSet 7046 is the Police and Rescue Fire Command Craft. This is an exceptional set. The highlight of the set is the rescue craft that attaches to the back of the boat. The boat opens up releasing the raft into the water. On the raft is a water cannon to put out fires with two translucent blocks for sirens. There are two areas for the figures to sit. One sits inside the boat with a few terminals and the other sits at the top of the boat. This set can interact with the Coast Watch Headquarters.

These days most of my LEGO sets I buy are based on movies. Once in a while it's really great that LEGO continues to put out traditional city sets not based on a license, and allowing the imagination to run a bit.
