    Toy Fair 2014: City & Minifigures
    Hot Bionicle NewsSaturday, February 22nd, 2014 at 12:12pm by Andrew, BZPower News Manager

    What would LEGO be without City? A bestseller year after year, in 2014 LEGO goes north into the Arctic. There's plenty of all-season sets to have fun with too though, including some collectible minifigures! So read on to see what City sets were on display at Toy Fair 2014!

    Toy Fair 2014 City 01

    City Transport

    60053 Race Car

    Toy Fair 2014 City 10

    100 pieces. Age 5+.
    $9.99 (USD) $12.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    Gotta go fast! Clearly this is President Business' sponsored race car, so I hope it loses all the races.

    60054 Light Repair Truck

    Toy Fair 2014 City 12

    95 pieces. Age 5+.
    $9.99 (USD) $12.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    It's always nice to see utility and other non-police and fire vehicles.

    60055 Monster Truck

    Toy Fair 2014 City 13

    78 pieces. Age 5+.
    $9.99 (USD) $12.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    I've noticed a lot of lime green in sets this year, which is certainly not a problem.

    60056 Tow Truck

    Toy Fair 2014 City 11

    227 pieces. Age 5+.
    $19.99 (USD) $24.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    For $20, this tow truck is a really solid and substantial build. I'm very impressed.

    60057 Camper Van

    Toy Fair 2014 City 14

    195 pieces. Age 5+.
    $19.99 (USD) $24.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    I love the detailed interior this camper has - a very nice non-emergency vehicle to add to your own LEGO city.

    60058 SUV with Watercraft

    Toy Fair 2014 City 15

    219 pieces. Age 5+.
    $19.99 (USD) $24.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    This is a pretty simple-looking build, but a good addition to any coastal LEGO city!

    60059 Logging Truck

    Toy Fair 2014 City 16

    228 pieces. Age 5+.
    $19.99 (USD) $24.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    I don't think those logs came from the same type of tree that's included in the set. Definitely a pretty cool build though.

    60060 Auto Transporter

    Toy Fair 2014 City 17

    350 pieces. Age 5+.
    $29.99 (USD) $39.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    I hope other LEGO cars, like the race car set above, can fit in this transporter.

    60061 Airport Fire Truck

    Toy Fair 2014 City 18

    326 pieces. Age 5+.
    $29.99 (USD) $39.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    Surprisingly, this appears to be the only fire truck we get this year. It's also nice to see a female firefighter included.

    60063 LEGO City Advent Calendar

    Toy Fair 2014 City 32

    218 pieces. Age 5+.
    $29.99 (USD) $39.99 (CAD)
    Available in September

    There's not much in the Advent calendar that really excites me here, although Santa's sleigh being pulled by a police snowmobile was kind of funny.

    Police

    60041 Crook Pursuit

    Toy Fair 2014 City 02

    38 pieces. Age 5+.
    $6.99 (USD) $8.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    I feel like City is one of the few themes that releases sets under $10. This is a simple one, but I'm sure it's a good entry set.

    60042 High Speed Police Chase

    Toy Fair 2014 City 03

    110 pieces. Age 5+.
    $19.99 (USD) $24.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    Two motorcycles and a police car for $20? Not a bad deal.

    60043 Prisoner Transporter

    Toy Fair 2014 City 04

    196 pieces. Age 5+.
    $24.99 (USD) $29.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    The prisoner transporter is pretty cool, but nothing too special.

    60044 Mobile Police Unit

    Toy Fair 2014 City 06

    375 pieces. Age 5+.
    $44.99 (USD) $59.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    I feel like the inside of this mobile police unit is kind of sparse, but I love the little coffee pot detail.

    60045 Police Patrol

    Toy Fair 2014 City 05

    408 pieces. Age 5+.
    $44.99 (USD) $59.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    I really like this set, even if it does seem a bit simple. The police jeep has got some great design elements.

    60046 Helicopter Surveillance

    Toy Fair 2014 City 07

    528 pieces. Age 5+.
    $74.99 (USD) $89.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    This is my favorite City set from this year. It's essentially a Sea King helicopter and that is awesome. I already have a copy waiting for me to build once I'm done with Toy Fair stuff.

    60047 Police Station

    Toy Fair 2014 City 08 Toy Fair 2014 City 09

    854 pieces. Age 6+.
    $99.99 (USD) $119.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    It looks like there are a lot of play features here. But it's another police station - I have no idea how many of these I've seen by this point.

    60048 Police Dog Unit

    249 pieces. Age 5+.
    $29.99 (USD) $39.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    This set wasn't on display.

    60049 Helicopter Transporter

    382 pieces. Age 5+.
    $44.99 (USD) $54.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    Again, LEGO didn't want to show us this set.

    Arctic

    60032 Arctic Snowmobile

    Toy Fair 2014 City 24

    44 pieces. Age 5+.
    $6.99 (USD) $8.99 (CAD)
    Available in August

    While it's no Ice Planet 2002, it's cool to see an arctic theme again. This set is simple, but who doesn't like snowmobiles?

    60033 Arctic Ice Crawler

    Toy Fair 2014 City 25

    113 pieces. Age 5+.
    $14.99 (USD) $17.99 (CAD)
    Available in August

    I'm starting to wonder what the balls of ice are for, if there's no alien embryos or something frozen inside. But we get treads and a cool crane.

    60034 Arctic Helicrane

    Toy Fair 2014 City 26 Toy Fair 2014 City 27 Toy Fair 2014 City 28

    262 pieces. Age 5+.
    $39.99 (USD) $49.99 (CAD)
    Available in August

    Now we have an S-64 Skycrane! I love that LEGO is making sets of real aircraft. This set also includes a dogsled with some huskies! It's going on my shopping list.

    60035 Arctic Outpost

    Toy Fair 2014 City 29

    374 pieces. Age 5+.
    $49.99 (USD) $59.99 (CAD)
    Available in August

    This mobile base is totally better than the police one. The outpost is on skis, how awesome is that? The whole thing is full of nice details.

    60036 Arctic Base Camp

    Toy Fair 2014 City 30 Toy Fair 2014 City 31

    735 pieces. Age 5+.
    $89.99 (USD) $109.99 (CAD)
    Available in August

    The arctic base is pretty cool - not only do you get a research center with a working conveyor belt, but you also get a helicopter, a snowmobile, a dogsled, and a drill with some giant treads. Plus there's a polar bear!

    Trains

    60050 Train Station

    Toy Fair 2014 City 22

    423 pieces. Age 5+.
    $64.99 (USD) $79.99 (CAD)
    Available in August

    Trains are back! Okay I'm not really that excited, but I'm sure someone out there is. The train station is nice, but my favorite part may really just be the taxicab.

    60051 High-Speed Passenger Train

    Toy Fair 2014 City 19 Toy Fair 2014 City 20 Toy Fair 2014 City 21

    610 pieces. Age 6+.
    $149.99 (USD) $169.99 (CAD)
    Available in August

    While it's fairly simple, I'm sure this train will provide hours of fun for a lot of kids, especially since it includes the Power Functions elements you need to get it moving.

    60052 Cargo Train

    Toy Fair 2014 City 23

    887 pieces. Age 6+.
    $199.99 (USD) $229.99 (CAD)
    Available in August

    The cargo train has got a lot going on. I really like the hoist system they provide for taking cargo on and off the flatbed cars. Like the passenger train, this one also includes everything you need to get rolling.

    Minifigures

    Toy Fair 2014 Minifigures 01

    71004 THE LEGO MOVIE Minifigures

    Toy Fair 2014 Minifigures 02

    Age 5+.
    $2.99 (USD) $3.49 (CAD) Each sold separately
    Available in January

    We've all seen the movie at least twice by now, so we know who all these crazy characters are. Collect them all or something!

    71005 LEGO Minifigures The Simpsons Series

    Toy Fair 2014 Minifigures 03

    Age 5+.
    $3.99 (USD) $3.99 (CAD) Each sold separately
    Available in May

    Unfortunately, LEGO was not ready to reveal the Simpsons collectible minifigs. I will note that the suggested retail price is going up from $3 to $4 though.

    71007 LEGO Minifigures Series 12

    Toy Fair 2014 Minifigures 03

    Age 5+.
    $3.99 (USD) $3.99 (CAD) Each sold separately
    Available in October

    As with the Simpsons, we'll have to wait and see what LEGO has come up with for later this year.

    There's quite the variety coming from LEGO City this year, and we'll have to look forward to see what the collectible minifigure line brings. Speaking of variety though, make sure you check out the other themes we've already looked at in our Toy Fair 2014 coverage and head over here to vote for what themes you'd like to see next. And don't forget to check back on BZPower for more upcoming Toy Fair coverage!
