The LEGO City 2018 sets are now available! For part of this release, LEGO have introduced a new Mountain Police subtheme that’s evidently been influenced by the success of the Forest Police subtheme from 2012. Today we will be introducing the 88-piece LEGO 60171 Mountain Fugitives set, released on January 1st, 2018.
LEGO 60171 Mountain Fugitives Set
Release date: January 1st, 2018
Number of pieces: 88
Parts: 4 minifigures (including 2 police officers with a pair of handcuffs and a baton, 2 fugitives with 2 shovels and a backpack), a log raft, police quad bike, a tree with a beehive and storage for 2 gold bars (which can be covered by a levered branch / bush). 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.
