Pros and Cons

Pros
The set feels high quality (very sturdy).
Very playable with the vehicles, net shooter and boulder release system (which both work well) and abundance of minifigures.
Excellent value if you collect minifigures or want to add to your LEGO Police force.
Rhe instructions are very clear and easy to follow.
Cons
Some fans have pointed out that the net launcher can be improved by removing a couple of pieces. The instructions display it in a fixed position, however this would be difficult to work in real-life. It should move from left to right (potentially 360 degrees) for maximum efficiency.
