Lego 60198 – Cargo Train

This is probably my favorite set of this next wave! The new Cargo Train set is absolutely a popular model with lots of staff to enjoy and play with and at the first glance, this one seems to be on the same level, not only with different carriages but most of all, it will be one of the trains that will show the new power functions kit as well as the app controls.

The set has exactly one thousand and two hundred and twenty-six pieces and features a new green locomotive, the usual three cargo carriages, a control tower with a big cabin on top, an armored truck with values and money inside, a traditional orange forklift, and six mini-figures (four workers, a robber and the van’s driver) with accessories. And of course, the usual rail tracks, this time with an always useful level cross and a new end line for the train.

The locomotive is similar Continue reading

New Lego City Trains Revealed

A couple of official pictures of the new city trains have finally been revealed, showing the new passenger train (60197) as well as the new cargo train (60198). If the passenger’s set didn’t excite me too much for several reasons, I must say that the new cargo train left me quite curious and anxious to put my hands on it!

The passenger train will bring around seven hundred bricks and will feature also the usual small station, a light sign as well as four mini-figures. The cargo train is considerably bigger with more than a thousand and two hundred pieces and will also present a cargo truck, five mini-figures, a forklift and a new control tower. And, of course, plenty of new details and feature to enjoy, namely the new wagon with a crane!

I’m planning to talk 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 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
