LEGO City: Six sets have been released for the Coast Guard sub-theme
As part of LEGO’s summer releases they have re-introduced the classic Coast Guard sub-theme with six brand new playsets. Being a Coast Guard theme we’re getting lots of boats (that actually float) and equally lots of sea creatures and that’s a good thing.
If you like boats, helicopters and sharks then these sets are for you and all in all they have a good spread of price ranges. One of the better value sets in my opinion is the 4×4 Response Unit (60165) set where you get a vehicle, 2x boat, a few minifigures and an octopus figure. Not bad at all for under £20.
One thing to note is that the Sailboat Rescue (60158) set is only exclusive to shop.lego.com and Argos only.
You can find all of the information you’ll need for the new sets below, enjoy!
