I want the cement truck and the tow truck, I think I'll skip all the fire sets though.

I never got around to modding the current tipper truck into a flatbed tow truck like I planned, now I don't have to bother. It is a bit silly that the car only just fits on this one, but that's easy fixed. Its a great looking car though.

I only just got my hands on the old blue cement truck, maybe he'll have some competition now.

Converting trucks into flat beds like that is very hard, good choice in waiting for this new one.
I too have a blue cement truck.......CEMENT WARS ! legolaugh

How cool do these sets look?! I love all things Fire, but I think I'll just get the burning house. As for the other civil vehicles, I really like them, although I think I'll just get the flatbed. I have the blue cement mixer as well, but I'm interested in seeing the design of the cement chute on the new version.

I like what I see especially the new look tanker.

A pity there no other alternatives such as BP, Caltex, Mobil, Shell and the many other fuel providers as I am sure a wider range would appeal to many of us legohappy

I have added a few more to my wish list as well but like everybody will wait til they arrive and then buy, buy, buy over again legolaugh

i want a pack of simple cars... coupes, convertibles, SUV's etc. etc. lego needs to makes 'general population' vehicles a bit more me thinks.

Go for it and MOC one.....oh, yeah car dealers aren't that easy to do sometimes.....look at my old ones ! legolaugh
Anyway, this is heading off-topic isn't it ? legowink

Things to note.
1.) Cement Truck is a cab over......and it tilts.
2.) Tanker driver doesn't have an Octan torso but a mechanic's one instead.
3.) Only 4 females in this release of city.....when will they learn ! legoheadbang

Does this fire station look better than the last? I need to get one soon but can't choose between the two.
I like the burning building set but a little disapointed with the rest. The small car is cute. I wish the Museum set included a museum not just a front door. Only one small crappy tree in all sets and no other plants or flowers.
Also how does everyone incorperate different coloured police in their cities?

Personally I think you would be better off buying the Fire Station Modular Building as it has way more character to it legohappy

I bought the last one and feel quite ripped off by it as it doesn't connect to the base plates in a straight line which creates added expenses legosad

Just depends on what your pocket can afford and the desired effect you want to obtain throughout your layout !!!

Silly me I forgot about the 'Fancy Fire Station', I will probably get a regular station as well as there are so many fire cars and trucks that some of them will need a home base. Im leaning towards the new one, hmm maybe?
