Rated 5 out of 5 by TheMasterBuilderof2013 Only one problem
It is very fun to build and play with. The blades are not the sturdiest, but overall it is good. If you want an airport buy this.
Rated 3 out of 5 by beirnut nice xmass gift
Didn't have chance to give it as to it was lost in transit,during ship to store in another state!
Rated 4 out of 5 by RomanianLegofan Good Helicopter
I like this set a big very big helicopter useful for transporting an ATV or troops you can transport 5 police officers with this great helicopter but you can not build a scenario with this helicopter.
I think that you can pay 45 $ for it because it can do more than just transporting an atv: you can carry troops and many other things.
Combined with the Mobile Police Unit and with the Lego City Police Minifigure collection (7279) you will be able to create the best scenario ever.
Rated 5 out of 5 by bobbyjim Really cool set
This is definitely one of the most unique sets that Lego has made in a while. It has a close resemblance to the CH-47 Chinook which is really cool. Would recommend this to anyone.
Rated 5 out of 5 by mommypapparazzi Great Lego Set
I purchased this set for my friends' 7 yr old son on his birthday. He was SO excited. He does lego sets often and it has become his favorite thing to do. He put this entire set together over a few days time. He was so proud of his accomplishment my friend texted me a picture of him holding his new Helicopter! (His mom did tell me that he probably could have completed this faster but he had school/homework, etc). Overall he was very excited with this set. I plan on purchasing this same set for my son for Christmas. He is almost 7 and I think he can do this one by himself or with only a little help.
Rated 5 out of 5 by jrod A Great Lego Set!
This is a great lego set to own. It comes with 3 minifigures which is a good amount. The sliding cockpit and side door and rear door are really cool! The six-wheeler that fits in has 2 compartments that hold a cop's flashlight and handcuffs. Sometimes the doors fall off but if you use the doors more they will slide just fine. The set is really detailed. Especially the two pilot's cockpits which are wide and roomy for the cops. This is one of my favorite sets I have. THIS IS A GREAT SET!!!!!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Washabi Very Nice Set
I wanted to buy this set for quite some time and when I got it it was much more than I had expected. This is a very nice set for ages 10-15.
-Has many opening hatches and back doors, which allows for maximum playability.
-The cargo vehicle in the back of the helicopter holds quite the amount of items.
-The wheels under the helicopter are very easily maneuverable.
-It is a bit of a hassle to take the pilots out of the cockpit.
-There is a lot of space behind the cockpit, but no way to get it unless you take off the roof of the helicopter, which is an annoyance to put back on.
-I would have had one more forest police minifigure in the set just for the feel of it.
Overall this is a great set and it goes nicely with the "Mobile Police Unit Set # 7288".
Rated 5 out of 5 by legostarwarsguy48 Must this be posted?
I, as a general rule before I got this, was NOT a fan of Lego Helicopters whatsoever. This changed the game. I have to say, top 5 Lego City sets I own. The lack of minifigs is a small problem, and the rotors are easily bumped off. But the absolute majority of this set is just irresistible, three gullwing doors, a rear compartment big enough (Minus very few pieces) to hold my custom Police Truck, and most of all, the layout is my favorite of any chopper, the Chinook! This could be better, but not much at all. This is just realistic, even for just little plastic toys. I can use clear walls for a setup to make it look like it's hovering. Overall, this is just an addictive to play with set with many life-like features.
Rated 4 out of 5 by AndrewO Looks great, but delicate
As a helicopter enthusiast, I'll get pretty much any Lego helicopter out there, and I have to say this one might be my least favorite. Don't get me wrong: it looks great, the design is there, and if you want a large transport chopper this is your best bet.
The biggest issue is that the helicopter is somewhat delicate and more like a model and less like a toy. The entire rotor assemblage pops off very easily, and the side doors will often fall off when opening or close the doors.
That said, I do like the nice wide cockpit with two pilots, and the storage bay with its little ATV. I might reconfigure the model and add a winch to one side, since that would be a welcome addition.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Legovip955 Awesome
This is so cool i got it for christmas and it is awesome i built it the next day it took me an hour to an hour and a half but it is worth it. it comes with 3 minifigures and a vehicle that fits in the helicopter. It has about 393 pieces its from ages 5-12 (I think).
Rated 5 out of 5 by Daniel13 The Chinook, AWESOME!!!!!!
I totally love this set because it is so big and fun to play with. You get three Lego figures, a six wheeled atv, and A giant helicopter. I like the cockpit that seats 2 people(it should fit at least 3 for the police officer) and the cargo area holds the rescue vehicle. The back door is great and so are the cockpit doors. The big door on the side to the cargo bay is nice too. This set works as a search and rescue or military aircraft also. Thanks for reading and I so recommend this product to anyone reading this!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Zezo Must get it
One of best kits ever! So much fun! My 6 year old son loved this!
Rated 3 out of 5 by 2gurly O.K Set
I got this set because it looked really cool. After i got the set when i built it it was really easy for a beginer builder. im 15 i started lego at the age of 5 or 6 so i have alot of experience and ive got alot of sets over the years and this is one of the easiest.
Fun to play with
Lots of space for mini figures
Too easy to build
Not much detail
Rated 4 out of 5 by Hikaru2442 Great Set!
This is really a great set. It is sturdy and visually appealing, with interesting features and an easy build. The figures are VERY nice. The 6-wheeler vehicle is funny, but fits the set quite nicely.
Blades can fall off a bit too easily
Empty space in the interior
All in all, this is a VERY good set. The empty space in the interior is a downer, but can also be an opportunity to personalize your set. This set makes a great gift. It's one of my new have sets!
Rated 4 out of 5 by meparty great product
this set is super cool PROS.cool heli. new minifigs little 6 wheeler
CONS roters break lots of wasted space inside copter (fixed with removing barrier) can only fit small vehicles inside
Other than that its super cool one other thing they (LEGO Group) could of added a huge helipad But its still a great product
Rated 4 out of 5 by agenthairu good set,okay pricing
this chopper is quite cool actually, the six wheeler is neat, the police men are really cool(i like the new hats on the brown police men) but the price isn't the greatest (at lest at the time of this writing it isn't) now on to pros and cons.
cool new policemen
neat six wheeler
no bad guys?
overall a pretty good set if you have other police sets but it shouldn't be your first police set unless you really like it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Suvart Best helicopter out there
I own most of the police helicopters and this had to be my favorite one. I got it back in December and I still use it. There are plenty of openings and what not. There also is a loading ramp in the back. However the little vehicle it comes with is pointless. I scraped it and used it for spare parts. The only con is after you spin the blades a lot they become wobbly and don't spin that much. The rotors also tend to fall off. Other wise a great set!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Poptart8362 Buy this Product!
Hey, this is Poptart8362 here reviewing the Heavy-Lift Helicopter. To start off, when I got this for Christmas, I already knew it was going to be great. This is the first Helicopter with dual propellers and I'm surprised. So, here are the Pros and Cons.
-Lack of minifigures
That's all folks!!! I hope you found this review helpful!
Rated 5 out of 5 by oneonebravo Cannae Complain
This model was the first I've bought in a very long time. I can't fault it to be honest, and I enjoy constructing and displaying as opposed to playing with as I find it relaxing.
Nice one TLC, I shall be buying more!
Rated 4 out of 5 by heyman i think it should be a part of city police. the helicopter is really cool
Rated 4 out of 5 by zzw88 not the best not the worst

Rated 5 out of 5 by Archangel85 Engineer
I love the lego. When I buy sets. I buy what I like, what i enjoy. I also look at what pieces come in it then i can use build my own stuff i design. I really like the helicopter set that come out every so often. =]
Rated 5 out of 5 by AllPSVita One Of The Best City Sets Of 2012!
It's a great set, recommend this to a friend
But a bit expensive
Rated 5 out of 5 by QuickerBricker288 Pretty Darn Awesome
This set is by far the coolest, awesomest, most playable, fun to build, and realistic set Ive ever seen! I definitly like how it resembles a Chinook Helicopter from the US military.
It features a six-wheeled ATV, three minifigures; two pilots and one police officer, as well as the helicopter itself.
However I have a few bones to pick with. First, it doesnt have the same colours or name as the real chinook, but that is understandable due to Lego's copyright issues.
The bar about half-way into the helicopter restricts cargo space by a lot. I recommend that you remove it.
Nevertheless, this set is still awesome. The rotors spin very easilly, there are doors for easy access and a rear door! That might be a lego city first!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pnguin26 BEST SET EVER
This is the best set I own and the second biggest too [the first being the AT-TE walker from 2008] . The back rotor is so big and has the jets that are on Robin's scuba jet [witch I own ] . The inside of the cockpit has two control panels and two joysticks. The cockpit doors work really well,but at first they didn't work well but I think they just needed breaking in. One pilot has dark glasses like an old 60's biker and sort of a smile and the other pilot has orange glasses with a weird smile and should be co-pilot. The forest ranger could be a mountie from the ROYAL CANADIAN MOUNTED POLICE. Th ATV is ok but is not realistic with 6 wheels. The cargo bay is pretty big and for some reason has an axel with a shiny hub-cap and tire at the end ,this is the biggest helicopter LEGO has ever made. The thing that bothers me about this set though,is that there is a big empty space in between the cockpit and cargo bay. I am not sure why the pilots are wearing the new lifejacket pieces because if they are forest police it's not like they are going to be flying over water,but I guess you could make them MP's[military police] for the navy. I am pretty sure that this so called ''Heavy-lift Helicopter''is actually a Boeing Chinook
,but I guess LEGO was not aloud to use that name so they made up that one. Chinooks are used for the military,S.W.A.T.,police,fire Dept. and medical uses. Chinooks are used in the BRITISH forces,CANADIAN forces and SPAIN. I got this set 3 days ago and it's name is ''Heavy-lift Helicopter,it is ages 6-12,there are 393 pieces and in CANADA this set with tax included it costs 73.44 and it was worth every single cent. I hope you enjoyed this and good day.
