Since Mega Bloks have come out with their HALO and Call of Duty Lines, my son seems to be more interested in them, until this set. He saw it in toys r us during christmas and said "Dad, I have to have this." With his Christmas money we just got it two days ago. After building it, I will have to say this is the best lego set that I have ever built since a kid. It is modeled off a military CH-53 Pavelow heavy lift helicopter. I really like the sliding door, but not realistic as the real one. However, the size of the helicopter, which can fit a pilot and co-pilot is pretty neat. Right now I am working on customizing it for my son buy adding the external fuel tanks. When watching my five year old play with it, I can respect its durability. TRUELY REMARKABLE WITH THIS ONE LEGO. The only negative thing that I would say is the bottom should have a cargo hook on it and definitely the PRICE!. If you get a chance people BUY THIS!!!!

My bad experience with this LEGO set
Firstly, the design is slightly flawed, in that the propellor is too close to the tail and hits it when you spin the propellor.
It is very delicate and difficult to play with as it breaks frequently.
I think it is more fun building it than playing with it.

Lego is turning out a bunch of _H-53s. Yay!!
Am I the only one that's noticed Lego's _H-53 streak? First the 60013 CH-53, then the 60067 CH-53, then this MH-53J Pave Low III. The H-53 happens to be my favorite helicopter, which means I'm buying up these sets. I really liked the 60013 helicopter, and then I purchased this... this helicopter is almost twice as long!! This is actually the most complex helicopter build I've seen from a City set, and I'm really happy with this set. I've always thought City should make more helicopter sets and I'm very glad to see that they are. The truck and house are fun builds, and I like the minifigures. The helicopter is an awesome design, and also great if you want to make a modern Lego military.

Call For Back-up, Part 1 of 2!
The Helicopter Surveillance set is a great addition to any Lego city. I couldn’t wait to get this one open and build it. I gave this one a four star rating. It would’ve been a five star rating but I don’t like how the rotors wobble and come to a hard stop instead of spinning continuously to a slow stop. Other than that, this piece is flawless. I like the ramp at the back of the chopper and I love the sliding door on the side with rope attachment. I typically only set these up in my city and leave them, but…upon completion…I felt the need to take this in the living room and make gunship noises with my mouth. If the cops at the Police Station have any difficulty tracking down the crooks during/after the prison break, I know who to call for back-up!
