Hi guys! Today I have a post which talks about every single LEGO City Police Station set released as of May 2018!
The first LEGO City Police Station set was 7237 Police Station. It was released in 2005 and had a big molded baseplate. Since this was a 2005 set, one of the police officers had a light-up hand (that could be activated by pressing his head). The set had 586 pieces and retailed for $69.99 in the United States and £39.99 in the United Kingdom. The set was re-released in 2006 with the same set number, but the light-up minifigure was replaced with a regular one instead. In 2008, a large 953-piece LEGO City Police Station set was released. It was built on one baseplate and I think it looked pretty good considering it’s a 2008 set. It had jail cells, police cars, offices with glass panels, and garages, amongst other details. It retailed for $89.99 in the United States and £69.99 in the United Kingdom. The next LEGO City Police Station set arrived in 2011. It had a similar styling to the 2008 one but was completely updated. There were stairs on the left which led up to the jail cells, and under the jail cells were the dual garages for both police vehicles included. The right part of the building was where the police did their stuff, with large window panels and various offices inside. The whole thing sat on one big grey baseplate. Two crooks, four officers, and one police dog were included. The set came with 783 pieces and retailed for $99.99 in the United States and £71.99 in the United Kingdom. Then in 2012, LEGO gave us another police station set – but this was under the Forest Police subtheme. It was not a very big station, with a jail area on one side with breakout feature, a police office on the other side, and a walkway in the middle – but I think it still looked pretty good. A tree with hiding space and a bear were included. Three vehicles came with this set too – a police helicopter, a police jeep, and the criminals’ quad bike. Two crooks and three police officer minifigures were included. Notably, this was the first LEGO City Police Station set to not be built on top of a baseplate. The set had 653 pieces and retailed for $79.99 in the United States and £59.99 in the United Kingdom. In 2014 we got a new Police Station set again. This one was built on large plates but not a baseplate. It had a garage with tower on one side, the police offices on the other side, and a jail section in the middle with walkway for the police in front. A police helicopter (with its own landing pad on the rooftop), car, and motorcycle were included, and a pickup truck was included for the crooks which could be used to pull off the jail wall panels with a grappling hook and chain. The set came with three crooks, four officers, and 854 pieces. It retailed for $99.99 in the United States and £79.99 in the United Kingdom. A new police station appeared the next year, 2015. This was 60069 Swamp Police Station, which had 707 pieces and retailed for $89.99 in the United States and £59.99 in the United Kingdom. The Swamp Police Station was pretty small, with a garage and office on one side with a jail cell on the other. They were linked by a walkway. A bit of swampy terrain was also included for the crooks to hide their loot, along with a dark green crocodile. Four vehicles were included – a police jeep, a police boat, a police motorcycle, and a boat for the crooks. Like the 2014 Police Station set, the crooks’ vehicle had a grappling hook that could be used to pull off the jail bar panel. Three police officers and two crooks were included. The following year (2016), we got another police station – kind of. This was set 60130 Prison Island. It’s basically a jail island, like Alcatraz, where the criminals are kept. It was mostly jail, with some police officer areas. Different methods for breaking out could be used, whether it was the chain attached to the criminals’ boat, the rope from the criminals’ hot air balloon, or just sliding down through the sewer. Fortunately, a shark, police boat, and police helicopter were all included to round up the criminals. This set had 754 pieces and retailed for $89.99 in the United States and £69.99 in the United Kingdom. LEGO seemed determined to release one Police Station set every year, as we got a regular Police Station set in 2017. This had a garage with tower on the left, a gantry with barrier underneath, a big angular police building in the middle, and a jail portion on the right. A police car was included that looked pretty sporty, and a police motorbike was included too. A truck was included for the crooks so they could try and use the included mechanism to blast open the jail cell and let the trapped criminals escape. Three officers, one police dog, and three criminals were included in the set. It had 894 pieces and retailed for $99.99 in the United States and £84.99 in the United Kingdom. And finally, in 2018, we got a LEGO Mountain Police Headquarters set. This 663-piece set included a police station with jail cell, garage, police office, and cave. As for vehicles, an off-roader police truck, a police motorbike, a police helicopter, and a helicopter for the crooks were included. A small side build was included with space to hide gold, and the cave had a feature which launched a mountain lion (though most of the time it fell down when launched). Four police officers and three crooks were included – one of whom was wearing a tree outfit to disguise himself with! The set retailed for $89.99 in the United States and £69.99 in the United Kingdom.
So, that’s basically every LEGO City Police Station set released so far! I hope that you enjoyed reading this post, and that it was suitably informative. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below! 🙂
