It could be great, but it's not
" (I'm adult Lego fan and to me it's important that set looks like realistic scale model, for my City Legorama.)
Expedition truck that can't transport all the passengers.
Minifigs - great, truck driver all greasy of fixing his truck, lab woman nosy with her camera and brave male and female explorers - 5/5. Vehicle - truck for heavy terrain with lab doesn't have driver and co-driver space (like 31085) and fake double cab. It's got fake side boxes (just stickers on tiles). Lab should have microscope that off-road vehicle from set 60161 have - 2/5. Animals and plants - very nice plant flesh eater and spider - 4/5. Waterfall is nice, but I would made it with idol and treasure (like in set 60156) hidden in waterfall instead of "jumping" crocodile from waterfall - 3/5. Overall - I really loved the idea of expedition truck with double cab (crew cab with 4 doors and 4 seats - like set 735) and with lab back on it, but this is just "shadow" of it. Kiddie toy not scale model. I buy it discounted and was thinking to get some extra brick to make it to look as model, but it would need a lot of extra. I mislead myself with this set.

Tribute to VW T2
" (I'm adult Lego fan and to me it's important that set looks like realistic model, for my City Legorama.)
It's a camper version of VW T2 Westfalia look-a-like.
Minifigs - like them, very summer feel, if fits well with this set. It would be nice that male have dual sided head print too 5/5.
Vehicle - love the van! It is not perfect but it is wright size, with driver and co-driver space. I'm not big fan of camper version of it, but it got all: bed, stove, sink, TV, desk. It looks very nice from outside, right size! 5/5.
Accessories - BBQ, binoculars, mug, surfboard, parasol, chairs 5/5.
Overall - love the model size and looks of van. It feels like LEGO model of VW T2, not as a kid toy. With little change it could have, at least, one back side door (not side wall opening). I'll change it from camper to regular van (with closed roof). You'll have great summer fun with this set. Second build, Lifeguard Tower, is nice, but a lot bricks left unused.
P.S. LEGO, you should do next, on this size vehicle ("platform"), ice cream truck! Maybe inspired by The Joker's "I scream" truck from set 7888. And would be great to sea 8-wide bus. Plus remake of 8-wide fire truck from set 735 (that have double cab with 4 seats).

Let sail together!
" (I'm adult Lego fan and to me it's important that set looks like realistic model, for my City Legorama.)
For lovers of sea sports.
Minifigs - love them! Really nice, especially the lady. She's in diving suit with protecting glasses. 5/5
Vehicle - catamaran is great! So simple but realistic! 5/5 Nice trailer. 4/5 Off road truck is nice build but it look as a toy not as a model. Missing that driver and co-driver place. That could be easy done if is one (or two) brick wider (cabin stay 6 wide). Love that third stop light detail. 3/5
Overall - that catamaran is perfect! Another very nice add to my sea transports. That off road truck have driver and co-driver "part" set would be perfect 4/5
Now I need to modified it, with extra bricks, to be like that.

"Mayday, Mayday, I crash into the bricks!"
" (I'm adult Lego fan and to me it's important that set looks like realistic model, for my City Legorama.)
Very lovely 2 boat set! Watch out for those cliffs!
Minifigs - love that hair guy have dual side head print and coast guard have nice both side torso print 5/5.
Vehicle - sailboat is nice and simple, for that size, no real cabin. Coast guard boat is very good equipped, search lights, megaphone, 2 "powerful" engines for fast arrival to help. It's got cabin, so for any weather and for longer distance. But, for example, when at place where is boat sunken and need save people on boat there's no room! Boat from set 4644 have that better solved. 4/5
Accessories - cup, megaphone, talkie walkie, 5/5
Animals - shark 5/5
Cliffs look nice with vegetation.
Overall - love this sea set! Sailboat and cost guard bout are very nice add to my sea transports. Even cliffs are nice add to the sea.
P.S. Hope to see bigger sailboat with real minifig cabin and more of this coast guard boats (this one have #07, set 60165 #04). Cheers, Lego lovers

Amazing helicopter!
" (I'm adult Lego fan and to me it's important that set looks like realistic model, for my City Legorama.)
Very interesting helicopter build.
Minifigs - love that pilot with mustaches, LOL XD, real macho man. And that macho man has two female assistants! That is cool. What is not cool, in fact, I really do not like it that guy that they are rescuing has almost the same legs and torso as pilot, 4/5.
Vehicle - first that water scooter, it doesn't feel right. It's kinda strange, driver standing, passenger is siting on the engine. And beside the engine it looks like are missing two bricks. 3/5
That Chopper is breath taking! It is really amazing. I remember my first Lego set, as a kid, was Flame Chaser 6531, helicopter, that is, like, 1/8 of this "monster", 5/5! (I did take off that horizontal antenna, too much)
Accessories - hm, really not much beside paddle, 2/5
Animals - shark, 4/5. I would put here shark like in set 71042 (but whole) and in white color - great white shark attack!
There is a lighthouse and shipwreck in microscale, bad 1/5. It would be better that came with buoy (same size).
Overall, do not like that so big helicopter is rescuing man in kayak. It needs to be something bigger (sailboat, yacht, fishing boat...).
This set is wort because of that great build and great looking helicopter. It has space in cockpit for pilot and co-pilot, 8-wide, that is realistic model! 4/5
(I would like to see shorter helicopter without sliding doors with 2 + 2 seating space instead of one seat helicopters)
P.S. Lego, you have 8-wide sets with driver and co-driver (pilot and co-pilot) of helicopters (60166, 60046, 7738), trucks (31085, 60061, 7998,...), vans (31079, 31052) and it is time for 8-wide planes and trains. You have 6-wide trains for 40 years, it's time for change. And 8-wide cars with 6-wide cabins like 70906 and other cars in The LEGO Batman Movie.

Welcome to the Jungle!
" (I'm adult Lego fan and to me it's important that set looks like realistic model, for my City Legorama.)
Nice small Jungle set.
Minifigs - love the jungle explorer, especially his torso front and back print, 5/5.
Vehicle - I love the idea of jungle off-road buggy, but not much final product. This is off-road vehicle that should have roll-cage protecting the "person" from buggy flipping over, like in set 60145 or even set 6534, from my childhood, has some kind protecting roll-cage, 3/5.
Accessories - machete, binoculars and diamond, good 5/5
Animals - spider, good 5/5.
After building set I really love that jungle idol! It looks realistic and hidden behind leaf with spider on it, in jungle that would make you go away not look what is behind. Love it, 5/5
Overall, this could be great small set but buggy doesn't looking like realistic model, 4/5

Very nice small set
" (I'm adult Lego fan and to me it's important that set looks like realistic model, for my City Legorama.)
It is very nice start set.
Minifig - great to have 2 minifigs in set small like this: crook and policeman, like them both, 5/5.
Vehicle - dirt bike, I love it, 5/5!
Accessories - crowbar, handcuffs and diamonds, good 5/5.
Animal - snake, good 5/5.
Hideout, "boulder", it's nice that is not made just of one or two pieces.
One thing that I do not like, better "say", one piece is missing. That is when policeman gets of the bike, he should have cap to replace helmet.
Overall, a lot for small set like this and all looks like realistic model, 5/5.
P.S. This is my first new Lego set after 20+ years, since my childhood. I see some very interested sets, it's time to "get back in game", for buying, building and collecting them
