[TnB Review] The LEGO Movie 70802 Bad Cops Pursuit

Post by Brickbuilder0937 » Thu Feb 06, 2014 1:50 am

Set#: 70802
Name: Bad Cop's Pursuit
Theme: The LEGO Movie
Year: 2014
Pieces: 314
Minifigs: 2
Price: US $29.99 / CAN $39.99 / UK £24,99


The Box:

Image
This is the European version of the box so the piece count isn't shown on the box

The Pieces:

Image
In the box there are three numbered bags of parts, an interaction booklet and a sticker sheet.

Image
The pieces from bag one minus the minifigures.

Image
Bag two.

Image
And bag three.

The most notable new parts are the ones used to make the new weapon.
Image
Image
Image
Just snap the two pieces together, put a stud on the front and push down on the top part to send it flying. It's easy to use and it's a lot more fun than flick fire missiles.


The Minifigures:

Image
The Bad Cop and emmet from the front.

Image
Both have alternate faces.

Image
Emmet's scared face sticks out from under his hair from the back.



The Build:


Image
Police alligators (?) a ret the first thing you'll put together after the minifigs.
One notable thing is that alligators have not appeared in a set since 2010, so it's good news for those of you who don't have any yet.

Image
Starting on the main model.

Image
Part of the railroad.

Image
First bag complete

Image
Breakaway railroad activated.

Image
Bag two starts the police hover car.

Image
Image
Bag two finished.

Image
Image
Image
And bag three will finish the car.

Image
I really like the design of this vehicle, Very swooshable.

Image
Leftover pieces.

Image
The finished model.

Image
Aaand….Action!


Conclusion:


DESIGN 8/10 - The police car is well designed but the railroad feels like filler for the model.

BUILD 9/10 - Not too easy, not too hard, but still fun to put together.

MINIFIGURES 7/10 - The Emmet figure is the same that can be found in most sets and the Bad cop is the same as the one in the blind packs. (except for the face printing)

PLAYABILITY 9/10 - Two minifigs, two alligators, a nice swooshable car and a breakaway railroad give this set a good amount of play value.

PARTS 7/10 - Most of the parts are pretty common, the only parts that really stood out to me were the new gun parts and the alligators.

PRICE 8/10 - The price feel about right to me, $30 use is not outstanding but still pretty good.

OVERALL 8.0/10

Thanks for reading and don't forget to answer the poll.

How far do the studs travel with the new gun?

^ If I shoot it straight up it goes about two feet, if I shoot it across a flat hard surface it goes 12-15 feet before coming to a stop.

The police car goes well with 2009 Space police theme
