Time to review another of the 250 Lego sets I’ve accumulated over the last few years. This time it’s an entry from the wide-ranging and central ‘City’ series: 60116 Air Ambulance.
‘City’ has always been, for me, the Starter-for-10 of Lego themes. It’s the one I turn to when I fancy a bit of a quick build, a palate-cleanser while I’m desperately trying to persuade myself that I’ll buy that giant Space/Creator/Atlantis/Cool sub-theme set instead of paying off debts once I graft together the necessary 500 bucks somehow. As a consequence, I don’t really have any great expectations when I buy a ‘City’ set. It’s a diversion, a whimsy. With any luck it’ll have a couple of unusual pieces, or a nice colour scheme, but beyond that, you know, I mean, you know… you knoowww…. Yeah.
