The inventory is ~97% accurate; there are almost no substitutions and deviations in the build. There's no Bear or Tricycle; plus, I substituted most minifigures (but found relatively good alternatives).

This set no. 4438 'Robbers' Hideout' came out in 2012 as part of the CITY's short-lived (and quirky) "Forest Police" subtheme. According to Brickset, the 'Hideout' was a retail exclusive in most countries.

The "Forest City" (and related "Forest Fire") was a curious short-lived CITY collection: essentially, specialized firefighters division that deals with forest fires and air-rescue mission, plus Forest Rangers hunting down runaway criminals. Fascinating topic! And LEGO designers, indeed, delivered some epic sets, new minifigures, custom parts, etc.

The Robbers' Hideout is in the remote wooden log cabin, partially hidden behind a rock. A tree grows on the roof, really driving the point it's a "Forest" scene. Despite a cozy entrance door and a window, it's more of a "barn" than a "cabin," retrofitted as a garage for a getaway car. The building also has a safe with three gold bars, a lantern, and a coffee mug. The "masonry" 1x2 Profile Bricks (part #98283 introduced that year) decorates both the foundation and the chimney on the roof.

Two police officers ride a pickup truck and a tricycle (absent on Mecabricks, unfortunately).

Another missing part here was a LEGO Bear—a rare animal that debuted in the "Forest" theme that year. This particular Bear species (with a dark brown body and sand-yellow muzzle) remained exclusive to "Forest Police" in 2012. Two years later, LEGO introduced a white Polar Bear (as part of the "Arctic" theme), and a "grizzly" Bear (with a black body and medium-nougat muzzle) came out in 2018. Sadly, it's still not modeled on Mecabricks.
