Lego 60181 – Forest Tractor

Here is a nice city set for those who have the older Logging Truck set (60059). The Forest Tractor is a new 2018 set with exactly one hundred and seventy five pieces and shows besides the green Tractor, a single mini-figure and some accessories such as a couple of trunks, a chain saw and a small tree.

I like this tractor. It’s sturdy, capable of handling with the trunk’s weight and best of all, it has a nice winch with claws that can easily grab the wood. The engine is placed at the front and the cabin is particularly big, all made of glass with several handlers on the inside not only for the winch but also for the vehicle itself.

The roof is easily Continue reading

Lego City 2018 – More Sets

Here we go for some more City sets! Eleven new boxes have been revealed, showing a few more addition to the great vehicles subtheme, some new Mountain Police boxes and what it seems the return of the Mining subtheme with four pretty interesting sets.

At the first glance, it’s impossible not to look to the Mountain Police Headquarters that shows, among lots of great features, some unusual cages for animals but I must say that the mining sets are also really nice with plenty of great machines, action and playability. As it concerns to the other two high speed vehicles, they didn’t impress me too much.

Have a look at the Continue reading

Lego 2018 Polybags

A bunch of images from new 2018 Polybags have been published in a youtube channel (Freedom Bricks), presenting fifteen (!!) new bags from different themes including Star Wars, Super-Heroes, Ninjago, City, Juniors, Friends, Disney, Creator and finally a single one from Duplo.

There isn’t for now, any kind of details about piece count, prices or eventual availability on Markets, but the pictures give a pretty decent image of the individual detail on each one. I must say that I especially liked a couple of city bags, namely the hotdog stand and the road worker.

Lego 60180 – Monster Truck

Here’s is another 2018 City set that has been unveiled last week. Definitely, it is not one of my favorites, but I must admit that is a good addition to a few previous Stunk trucks sets. With around two hundred pieces, this 4X4 truck shows also a nice ramp, two gas bottles with flames and a single mini-figure, the pilot,  which is unfortunately a negative point in a twenty dollars set.

This beast has perhaps some of the largest wheels present in a City set, giving it, together with the suspension and impressive height. The suspension is clearly built with technic bricks and attaches to the rest of the structure in several points, giving the car a very sturdy look.

On top, the big engine Continue reading

Lego 60182 – Pickup & Caravan

The Pickup & Caravan is a new Lego City set that will be available in the beginning of 2018. With three hundred and forty four pieces, it is a sort of update of the 2016 model (60117 – Van and Caravan) and absolutely with better results. This new set features a nice red pickup, a big caravan and three mini-figures (a family of three with a couple and a kid) with plenty of assorted accessories.

Having a look at the van, it’s impossible not to say in the first moment that it won’t handle with the caravan. It looks sturdy, powerful and with a nice design. The cockpit is large but has no side doors, the roof detaches easily and at the back, the trunk is transformed to receive the attach mechanism of the big caravan.

The Caravan is absolutely Continue reading
