It’s currently unclear whether the chain connecting the raft and quad bike comes with the set.
Subtheme: Mountain Police
Theme: LEGO City

This LEGO 60171 set is much larger than the 37-piece LEGO off-road chase set and would be another great addition to the Mountain Police Headquarters (once the fugitives have been detained of course). The raft is a cool feature which may give the fugitives the upperhand when trying to escape. However, the beehive booby trap will deter the fugitives. The beehive is a fantastic addition to this set and would work as part of many LEGO scenes.

With 2 police officers in this set along with potentially hidden gold bars, it’s a enjoyable set that will create a lot of fun. This set will encourage creative thinking and will also help add to the display aspect of other sets.

Pros and Cons

Pros
The minifigures have new designs that have not been seen before. The male bandits face has an alternative side with bee stings on it.
Excellent value set if you are collecting minifigures (this set comes with four)
The beehive is a new lego piece and fits perfectly in many LEGO scenes
Plenty of room for creativity
Cons
The small vehicle is very typical in LEGO
The log raft does not float
