Lego 60180 – Monster Truck

The Monster Truck is a new City set that has been released recently. It’s a typical twenty dollars set, with around two hundred pieces that features a 4×4 Truck with an incredible suspension, a ramp built with plenty of small pieces for some nice jumps, a couple of barrels on fire and a single mini-figures, the truck’s pilot.

The truck looks absolutely cool in my opinion, even for those who aren’t so fan of these types of vehicles. With very big wheels and a high suspension built over a technic structure, the truck can smoothly surpass any obstacle thanks to its working mechanism and through the pictures it’s possible to see some small rubbers between the axles that control that extension feature.

Lego 60174 – Mountain Police Headquarters

The Mountain Police Headquarters is a new Police set with around six hundred pieces that has just hit stores and it’s definitely one of my favorites in this city wave. It absolutely breaks the trend of a new urban Police station year after year, and presents a lot of different stuff to enjoy.

As you can see in the pictures, the set features a building with four distinct areas, an interesting heliport as a separate element, a small rock with some hidden gold pieces, a police truck, an all terrain motorcycle, two helicopters (one for crocks and one for the good guys) and seven mini-figures (three crocks including a pilot and a guy with a tree suit, and four police officers, including the second pilot).

The Headquarters are fantastic Continue reading

Lego 60183 – Heavy Cargo Transport

The Heavy Cargo Transport is a new set that has just hit stores and definitely one of my favorites in the 2018 City wave.  It’s not very big, featuring two hundred and ninety six pieces but it surely has some great stuff to enjoy.

As you can see, the set presents a long truck with an articulated trailer (besides the attaching mechanism), quite unusual in Lorries, an Helicopter as the cargo and two mini-figures ( the driver and the heli’s pilot) with some assorted accessories that includes walkie-talkies, a toolbox and a small tank with fuel.

Why do I like this truck? Continue reading

Lego 60176 – Wild River Escape

Here is a new Police set that has no road vehicles. And it’s pretty interesting for sure! The new Mountain Police Set has a bit more than hundred pieces and features a Police speed boat, a red raft and two mini-figures (a robber and a police) with additional accessories that includes a big box with stolen jewels.

With a single brick for the hull, the blue speed boat is however built with plenty of small pieces which give it a pretty cool look. The cockpit has a large windshield and inside the police has the usual seat and some handlers to maneuver the boat. Just behind it, there’s a small black bar with two emergency lights as well as the two powerful engines.

Looking at the red raft, it Continue reading

The set brings a blue Police helicopter with a reasonable size, a mountain hideout built up on some rocks, a red buggy, a bear figure and four mini-figures (a couple of police officers and two robbers) with multiple accessories.

The Heli is clearly Continue reading
