LEGO City 2018 Sets Now Available

LEGO Mountain Police HQ Full View

It’s time for LEGO City 2018 sets! Many are already out, but there are plenty more to come. Some of these you may already find in some stores, others are still a mystery. Let’s take a look at them!

LEGO City 2018 Sets First Look

We’ve covered Ninjago, Star Wars and Technic 2018 sets. Now, it’s LEGO City time!

LEGO City is an interesting theme because it’s so open-ended and varied. These sets are where creativity can really shine at its brightest, as you don’t have any stories to hold your playability down. Whether together or apart, there is a lot that can be done with LEGO City sets, so let’s take a glance at what our imaginary town has to offer this year.

Polybags

There are a couple of polybags to come out this year. These little builds are awesome to bring that extra detail to the city, as well as being a simple way to get minifigures and parts for bigger projects.

LEGO 30356 Hot Dog Stand

LEGO City 2018 Sets Hot Dog Stand Polybag LEGO City 2018 Sets Hot Dog Stand Polybag

This polybag is a personal favourite, as it’s so simple but still quite sweet. It has only 43 pieces, but it builds a cute hot dog stand. It comes with a bun and a hot dog to add, which can be useful in other scenarios. As well as the stand, it also has a trashcan — can’t allow littering! For a polybag, it offers a small but still interesting build that actually has playable value in a LEGO urban environment.

LEGO 30357 Road Worker

LEGO City 2018 Sets Road Worker Polybag

This polybag is also quite useful. It comes with 58 pieces and builds a small car with a road worker sign. The minifigure wears a hard hat and carries a light and a walkie-talkie, all interesting pieces seen in any city. It also carries a warning sign with studs to represent the lights.

This is a LEGO exclusive polybag released in January 2018. This is a very simple build, with 40 pieces. It will be a nice free gift, although it’s nothing particularly interesting.

Boxed Sets

These larger sets are the “meat” of every LEGO theme. This year brings a lot of mining-related LEGO City sets, as well as some related to the Mountain Police subtheme. November brought some of these already, and we’ve covered others, such as the Dirt Road Pursuit, the Off-Road Chase and the Mountain Fugitives set.

But there’s still more sets coming, so let’s take a look at them.

This is a rather large build, with 663 parts, and one of the most interesting of the LEGO City 2018 sets. It includes the headquarters themselves, which are fairly small, as well as several vehicles, minifigures and even a mountain lion! The headquarters are on a mountainside, with a holding cell for your prisoner and a fair amount of detail. It also includes a small cave area underneath (where the mountain lion hides) and a very funny minifigure in a tree disguise.
