New LEGO City Sets Feature Hillbillies, Bears, Hooch Shack

You think I’m kidding, but no: This is happening. While LEGO City sets have long included some off-the-wall models — including, but certainly not limited to, the Space Shuttle — 2012 will see a more back-woods flair coming to the world. This seems to include highway patrol officers, bears, police dogs, abandoned gold mines, and hillbillies.

Now, “hillbilly” is a bit of a loaded term. However, if what’s pictured above isn’t a secret moonshine shack, then I don’t know what is. Also, the preponderance of slack-jawed looking crooks with tricked-out vehicles simply begs the comparison.

If that’s not your kind of thing, there are now LEGO bears, and that’s worth a lot in its own right.

 

Finally, LEGO enthusiasts will be able to recreate their favorite scenes from CHiPS.
