Things you should know about this set
this set was not to easy and not to hard i would tell a friend.
This was a fun build to make and goes well with other Lego city items.
the truck is HUGE!!! so many bricks and fun for hours!!!!! I think this set totally worthy because the amount of cool things the kid can build and keep himself busy. My 4yo needed help sometimes because it has a lot of details but Im not complaining as I love Lego as well!
Great Lego set
Bought for my 4 year old, he loves it. Great Lego set and good value for money.
Good set, better ones available Spring 2018
Have been debating about getting this set since its release, 6 months later purchased. My impressions are as follows Pro's Good build, glad you build the trailer and its not just one large piece Good play value, fun picking up stuff with the chain/hook of the helicopter. You get an extra chain in the set Good use of stickers Kids like the box/crate you get with the truck Con's Truck is a little bit small. Pickups from other sets are as big as this Semi. Color scheme not the best. Sure someone requested a black truck a few years back, getting a lot of them now. Its ok, bit too much red. Not crazy about the red rims. Play/fun not as good as some other current sets in this price range. Only get two mini figs. Added a few pictures to help. First, this truck is the same size as a pickup of two alternate sets. This truck should be much bigger. Second, the helicopter is ok sized, but the high speed chase one is much bigger. You can also put multiple mini figs in the larger helicopter and it has a winch (only one mini fig fits in this one). Lot more fun to pretend to fly with the larger one. It is bigger then the Airport Starter set one (yellow). Last, lifting and flying/hauling the gas can around is only so much fun. You can connect the lift ring to about any Lego product so you need a few other sets to have better things to lift/haul. Conclusion, I would purchase the high speed chase or the new Camper sets over this one for the kids. If you can afford them all, then its worth the purchase. Would be better value if came with a 3rd mini figure.
I bought a week ago for my nephew's birthday and he absolutely loves it. Bought it to collect in store which was easy to do and had great service.
Expensive but worth it
Yet another vehicle to add to my grandson's vast collection. Like all Lego, you don't get much for your money but the play value is worth it
Nice set with good playability.
I think its one of the better city sets vehicles. You can fit two figs inside. You can play with the truck, truck with the trailer and the helicopter. I really like the execution of the trailer. For anyone that likes trucks this is the one to get for sure.
This is a brilliant value Lego set. Lots of play value too.
Heavy Cargo Transport
I bought this for my son for Christmas. He enjoyed building and playing with it.
