Space Police Three Base Critique

Since I am going off of a review from Eurobricks, this is nothing more than a critique of what was shown.

I am not as impressed with the final results of the set as I was with the initial pictures.

Some nice parts though, I will be sure to get them from Bricklink.

So, what is the problem? Well, really, it is just what it is supposed to be, an action platform. The problem with large base sets is that most of the details are more suggestive than real. If this number of parts had been used to create a single ship or other vehicle, there would be much more detail, making it a much more enduring model. But because it is an action set, most of the details have been set aside in favor of...action stuff.

A uniquely designed and functional garage door with black and yellow garage door parts, more "jail cell" parts, and a bunch more white. That is what this set is.

The land vehicle's windshield and the base's blue curved windows are must-haves though.

Unfortunately, that is about all this set has going for it.

A shame, really. The two largish space ships yet to be seen might be far more interesting to build.

Here's hoping for the best.
