Seven new polybags were recently revealed and I must confess that at least a couple of them caught my attention. There are two city bags, a coast guard seaplane and a lawn mower, two creators namely a usual Christmas tree and a nice hot dog stand, a toysrus exclusive, Geoffrey the Giraffe, a black race car and finally a nice autumn scene with plenty of leaves.
I especially liked the lawn mower and the hot dog little car which in my opinion are not only a good addition to the city environment but most of all none of them is properly usual in regular sets.

The 4WD Jeep with a horse trailer is a 2009’s set but is still current. It has more than one hundred and seventy pieces, two mini-figures and a horse.

Staring by this one, it has more technical pieces then it would be expectable. Starting by the base which has two long pieces. The cab is raised and has a steering whell and a decent seat. At the front, there is the engine with some dark gray parts representing the engine’s grilles. The wheel arches also intend to protect the driver in case of accident.The wheels are also big, and the rear axis’ attachment is different than the usual city vehicles because it uses a long and thin piece instead of the common method, like the front axis for instance.
