New Lego City 2012 images have started to appear online and while they all feature watermarks they lack the “Confidential” status we have seen so far- so as far as we can see they are legitimate and legal :0)
If you take a good look at the sets you can see in the first wave of 2012 Lego City will have a “Forest” management focus as well as a few Recycle/Garbage sets, both put a new twist on sets we have seen before.
Taking the regular Fire and Police sub-themes and placing them in a Forest context is a refreshing change and already I can’t wait to see where Lego takes them next.
The Lego City Forest sub-theme is also a wonderful way to expand the City theme- bringing the “country” to the borders of the urban environment in the same way that the Farm sets did in 2011.
My favorites so far are the Caravan and Car, the Mobile Command Center and especially the Heavy Lift Helicopter which looks amazing!
The Lego Fire Station is one of the hallmarks of the Lego City theme.
Along with Police Station and Hospital Services, the fire department is one rescue service no city can be without, Lego included.
A Lego Fire Station set generally comes with a Fire House where firemen (and women) can gather awaiting their next dispatch, a fire truck to race to emergencies and extinguish fires and often a fire car and a number of fire personel.
In short, the Lego City Fire Station is a playset with heaps of play potential for kids who are interested in the operation of emergency services.
