Funtastic! This LEGO CITY Bank and Money Transfer set is fantastic fun. Imagine the scene; the bank assistant sees a robber stealing money from the bank and set off the silent alarm. Now you be brave and rush to the scene to protect the money transport truck and try to stop the robber before he can get on his motorcycle and escape!

Caught stealing money from the ATM machine, the two robbers try to escape the police. The police will need the help of the police dog and ATV to catch them and put them behind bars! The LEGO City Police Minifigure Collection includes an ATM Machine, Quad Bike, 4 Minifigures and Police Dog.

Then stop the prisoners from escaping the police station through the drain pipe!
They won't get far on foot. Use the police car to chase them down and transport them back to prison in the police van.

Reckon it's not much of a deal - bank has been on sale at Argos and finally went down to £22 or so. Have seen the small police pack today for less than the amazon price. Not sure if the police station is the same one that has been as low as £28? So individually they could have been purchased for around £60 at their best. I'd look to buy the police items separately - have got the bank and it's not one of their best value for money sets, even at the reduced price I paid.


The police station is £60 in tesco extra yesterday.

If youve seen it for £28 please tell us where as I for one would buy one.

The police station comes in a very big box btw.

i got the police station mega value pack for 39.99 from tru just before xmas, so not that a great deal imo.

If I could go back in time and get the Argos price that would be good ... but alas ...

Small police pack for less where and how much less?

£28 for the police station would be the lego bargain of the year

Where is tru??? and what was in the pack? and when is it next on offer?

Guess tru is toysrus. Police station is often on offer, usually around £45, although the new one is the forest one.

The other smaller police pack has been £4 in m&s (or might have been debenhams) this month. Has also been £4 in tesco previously.

Small pack was £6.99 or £7.99 in Smyths today - I picked it up but can't remember exactly how much.

Their large police station was down a couple of quid to £58 or so. My 3 year old wanted it; annoyingly I didn't bother with the Argos deal at £30 even though i reserved one, and missed the amazon £28 one - I thought I had my old Lego police collection in the loft, but I can't find it.

I missed the argos offer but luckily got the £40 Toys r us bumper police set. As it was at the top of my lads Santa list. I have since found a retro police set in my loft , he he hr They are sure to work great together. Hope your one turns up.:3

I love all these comments about old deals people have had on Lego but never seem to appear on here...

The police station at amazon and Argos were both posted. As was the bank (at least once). I used the search on hotukdeals to get the £4 price info on the other set. Some of us just spend too much time on here! - I mainly have been after Lego sets in the last 18 months to stash away for my son as he gets older.

I checked here daily in the lead up to Christmas and managed to bag a few bargains and have put them away for sons birthday. It just a case of checking frequently.

So to summarise ... these sets have been available for fantastic prices but if you want them now you have three choices

1. Wait and hope they are reduced again, you spot and manage to get the deal in time and that they aren't discontinued whilst waiting.
2. Pay £98 + possibly petrol/delivery etc to get them elsewhere
3. Go for this deal

... unless anyone knows a good deal on a time machine?? ...

Wow that was a great deal but if I can manage to get the police station for under 30 notes that would be the lads birthdy sorted!

Smyths seems to be the best place to keep an eye out for a reduction if you want all three together at a cheaper price. They have the 3 available separately for £105.97, and there was a £10 off voucher that expired earlier this month which would have made it near enough the same price as the costco pack for non-members. I'm sure there'll be something similar at Smyths soon, or a reduction on the prices.

My advice would be to buy the police station separately for £60 if you must have it now (or less if you can wait for any sort of deal - it's been consistently lower than £50, and at present plenty of stock at major toy stores and I can't find any information that it's a discontinued set yet), and ignore the bank set. Get the police helicopter that's £23 or so instead - much more interesting and different to most of their other sets.

Argos is the other place to keep an eye on the price of the police station - it's currently £70, but that's £40 more than it was a short while ago, and their prices tend to change regularly.

Or £25 off first order at very - discount code on this site. Takes Police Station 7498 from £72 to £47 - sorry pops1975, can't get it to under £30 at the moment!



i bought this at Tesco early this year for £18

thanks for the advice carerham7!

Right this is not technically a deal as such but it might be an option for someone. The lego police station set is £59.99 at iwantoneofthese.com

£5.00 worth of tesco voucers can be exchanged for a £10 evoucher to spend at iwantoneofthese.com

So you could get this for £30 in tesco vouchers.
