Nah, they both have the same Helmet with a HUD print on one face...
The ADU or Galaxy Squad guys would be a better fit for IG, printed "armor" and a helmet.

LEGO City Police is quite militarized.

They have Boeing CH-47 Chinooks...

Sikorsky MH-53 Pave Lows...

And if LEGO City Undercover can be taken as canon, freaking paratroopers. They clap the prisoners in an anachronistic ball-and-chain combo, but for some reason the cops don't seem to carry personal guns?

Even the gangster's official bio admits that there's a police station on every block.

LEGO City is a police state, but a rather unorthodox one...
Indeed.

If the ads I've been seeing are any indication, criminals in Lego City like to use TNT for pretty much everything. They're more of an anti-terrorist force than police.

I don't think it much matters why they're setting off explosives in a populated city when they're setting off explosives in a populated city.

What Voin is saying is that those who set off bombs in populated cities are usually considered terrorists, while those who set off bombs in military locations are usually not.

I don't think it would make any sense for them to act like terrorists in order to get what they want, everyone knows you're not supposed to negotiate with terrorists.

I never said it was a good plan, but then again, if they were that smart, they wouldn't be kidnapping people in the first place. If you're gonna base your master scheme off movie, you should make sure it's not one where that scheme blows up horribly in the "mastermind's" face.

So watchmen then?
