"Not quite as inspiring as previous models as it didn't shout Police Station to me. The function of the building should be reflected in the style; the bank looked strong and rugged, the cinema looked artistic, the detectives office looked intriguing and the restaurant looked edible! But this was a block, which is made more obvious alongside other buildings, and made worse by the tired joke of attaching donuts to the police. Maybe the spirit of law enforcement would have been respected more by having a security device shop there instead, making it bigger to help the visual balance, covered in rivets, steel gates and maybe dark blue.
Saying that though, the layout of the facilities within the station was good, the mugshot camera was tucked into a corner, and I loved the mini darkroom in the tiny space at the top of the building. Squeezing in a toilet is good, but please add a hand basin too as it educates children at the same time.
Its a shame the station didn't come with a police vehicle, maybe a dog van or a wagon. But an enjoyable build, the price was a bit steep without a vehicle but nice to have three different styles of building fascia."
"Excellent, a great, working model with a well designed mechanism. An excellent idea to make it animated, making it appear to come to life like you'd expect from a Harry Potter kit. Only three stickers and printed bricks for the eyes. Magic!"
