Put me down for the bear and the rangers hat.

Ditto. This is an interesting spin on the regular police/fire subthemes and makes for some standout sets. Very cool!

Agreed...it's a nice way to continue a sure-fire, staple theme while putting a new spin on it.

I wonder how long it will take for them to show up in the modular builds.

Love the bear. Not sure I'm willing to buy the sets it comes with, though. (Police just isn't my taste.)

I'm liking the garbage truck way too much. I think, like the Superman set, I'll buy it the first chance I get.

I spotted the Heavy Duty Chopper, as well as the Forest Police Station at my local TrU, although I wouldn't expect to see them next time I venture back. I'm actually kind of excited for the Dirt Bike Truck (4433), but I won't hold my breath for it this year :x .

It's neat to see something different this year with City.

Maybe I'll pick up one of these sets, they look nice.

The building is cool, I like that its become alot more modern and not just a block with windows, this has a five star play factor, spot on for the target market. ;)

Looks like the full assortment is available at S@H now...not just the initial releases.

I LUG NY did a parts draft of the Forest Police Headquarters. I now have a nice pile of those brick bricks in-hand. I like them a lot for certain applications, like 2-brick high stone walls (lots of those in New England). Putting them at a 90 degree angle looks weird. Didn't get any bears, but I played around with one briefly and I dream of one day amassing a Russian bear cavalry of my own. It's pretty cool, all legs can move independently.
