5975 Police Helicopter
« on: August 09, 2012, 02:50:33 »
This is the new US exclusive helicopter, available at Toys R Us stores. It is made in Germany, and of very good quality.

A view from the bottom, showing the windows in the bottom, a feature I don't know if we've seen before.

Another very nice set, that makes a great addition to our collection.

If you hear the sound of the bell which will tell you that Grigori has been killed, if it was your relations who have wrought my death, then no one in the family will remain alive. They will be killed by the Russian people. :prays:

Very sleek looking vehicle looks well designed and the Klicky's look cool as well, I've got to say I quite liked the look of the figure using the winch and the winch itself with the last set  :)

Great review, Bonnie, and I think you're right about the clear panels in the floor.

I noticed this helicopter was made diffrent. Geobra used to be one of the best vacuum plastic molders in maybe the world. Their toys were always made using very sophisticated molds with very intricate designs with great details. When the economy tanked Geobra tried to combat the stingy US toy buyer by selling out to inferior Chinese production techniques. Chinese toys are typically screwed together due to their inability to produce super high quality molds with strong plastic. On the other hand Geobra made toys that were snapped together. When these new sets hit TRU it was speculated these may be of Chinese descent. To our surprise they were of German birth. Now if they were made in Germany then why is the chopper screwed together? I only remember a few other German made sets that had to be screwed together and they were build yourself ships. Eventually the screws get rusty and you loose the ability to take it apart. Now is geobra playing some loop hole where they have the Chinese make the parts and they are assembled in Germany? Who knows.

I like the chopper and I will get more but, Geobra please stop getting so stingy
