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 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 60169 – Cargo Terminal

The Cargo Terminal is a new City set that will hit stores next June, during the next wave of releases. The exact piece count in not know but I would say that looking at the set box, it should have around the six hundred pieces which makes it reasonably big.

As you can see, the set features a lot to enjoy: a new cargo truck with a trailer, a red forklift, a sort of warehouse to store pallets, a small building with a barrier, a blue winch car to move the big truck containers and finally four mini-figures (one driver for each vehicle and the reception girl) with assorted accessories.lego-60169-cargo-terminal-city-2

Lego 60059 – Logging Truck

The cargo sets definitely will appreciate this new addition. The Logging Truck is a city set with two hundred and twenty eight pieces that features a great truck with plenty of stuff to play, including a nice yellow crane at the back of the vehicle, two small trees and two mini-figures (a couple of lumberjacks).

This new Truck is absolutely interesting despite its cabin is similar to dozens of models. Inside there is basically the same, the small doors are also included this time but if we look closely there are a few new details such as the new grid at the front, the couple of steps to climb for the interior, the orange lights at the back and finally the grill on the roof, probably to protect the cab from undesirable accidents!

The chassis looks basically the same Continue reading
