History[edit]

The City theme traces its origins to Lego Town, a theme introduced with the first minifigures in 1978, although Lego sets with city buildings and vehicles were getting commonplace already by the late 60's. In 1975 a precursor to the minifig was introduced, in the same scale but without moving parts. These mid-70's Town sets had buildings and vehicles functioning more as models, with minifigs unable to ride the vehicles - this trend continued even with the new minifigs until the early 1980's, when vehicles and buildings consistently were designed to be minifig-compatible.

Since its introduction, different subthemes under the City banner were used to tie together related sets, such as Police, Coast Guard, Emergency, Airport, Road Rescue, Trains, Fire, and Harbor. During the Christmas season, a City-themed Advent Calendar set is sold through the online Lego Shop and at retailers.

Video games[edit]

A video game developed by TT Fusion called Lego City Undercover was released for the Wii U on March 18, 2013; a port of the game was released April 4, 2017 on Microsoft Windows, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. A prequel to the game was also released for the Nintendo 3DS on April 21, 2013.[2] Lego City content, based on Lego City Undercover, was added to the toys-to-life video game Lego Dimensions on May 9, 2017, via a "fun pack" containing a Chase McCain minifigure and a constructible Police Helicopter.

TV Series/Webisodes[edit]

Short 2-5 minute films produced by M2 Films and Lego were released on the Lego website in 2011. New films are released every year.
