That seems kind of disappointing to me. It is a remake of last years sets pretty much. I know that there is only so much you can do with themes like the police and the fire department, but at least have a rotation to have different sets every year for at least 4-5 years or so.

I never bought last year's sets, but these tickle my fancy.

Hopefully this will replace the poor Space Police III Theme.

LOLWUT??? Space Police III is probably 75% of the reason why I'm back into LEGO this past year after 20 years of dark ages (Indiana Jones and Star Wars represent the other 25%). I will be sad to see it go, but if this new theme ushers us into a new era of Classic Space type sets, I'm behind the move 100%.

Alright the second wave of Space police III is a lot better than the first release though, you have to give it that. The first release was pretty...dismal.

I'm glad they're bringing space back into the fold of the the City theme though. I like the idea of a launch pad for every town! Bring us into the future!

Would it be a better idea to spend their resource on some set like Hospital, School, Museum, RecCenter, or Library? There are so much that could be done. By the way, I am disappointed with the city corner. The pizza shop is too small.

I like Space Police III, especailly the mini-figs. They look very cool if they line up in front of you.

Hospital! I really like that idea. Some neat ambulances or a trauma helicopter. They've done police and fire department too often I think. However as long as they keep selling them they'll keep making them.

I have to admit I got into SP3 just as the second year was starting, with RaidVPR and Gold Heist, although the first year's offerings like Galactic Enforcer, Space Truck Getaway and Hyperspeed Pursuit are really awesome. Freeze-Ray Frenzy is cool as a mini version of Hyperspeed Pursuit. Max Security Transport is just okay. In fact, the only ones I don't have from the first year's offerings are K-9 Bot and Squidman's Pitstop. This year's sets have been superior, but that just makes it even better! Usually there's a drop-off as the greater amount of imagination is used up in the initial wave.

Yeah, the alien minifigs have been one of the best outcomes of SP3... as well as the return of trans-yellow windscreens this year!

I didn't pick up Squidman's Pitstop either. First, there was no new mini-fig. Second it was a little over-price. As a result, I built a pitstop and alien spaceships from the aid of bricklink. :mrgreen:

Well, I didn't pick it up because I didn't know about it when it was available. Then when I knew of its existence, the only place that still had it was TRU in Times Sq. NYC... and if you thought TRU had bad markups, you should see the that one. It marks up on regular TRU markups. I think it was about $65 there.

I can just imagine putting a Lego torso on the floor covered in he 1 X 2 red bricks. Or guys with missing arms! Hilarius!

I'd love to see a library or a town hall in their next modular building sets. We just finished the Grand emporium and working on the fire brigade. I'm really liking these sets.

So, which modular building set is the best? If I could only get one, which one I shouldn't miss?

They are all absolutely great, I am slightly bias to the Green Grocer, that might be because it was the first one I got.

The canine unit sounds great. I was a bit sad that the only police dogs that they really had were in the small impulse set and the police station. Around where I live they use those police dogs for everything.

Of the two sets we got, I think Grand Emporium is better than Fire Brigade. I'm going to buy green grocer before it's gone but can't open it until after xmas. :shock:

If they really are going to make new sets so similar to last years, look for last years to go clearance on S@H in next couple of months.
Im going to keep a close eye on that. :ugeek:
I have inoperable cancer and am unable to work. Any gifts would be appreciated. Thank you!
