Lego 60178 – Speed Record Car

Here is a nice ten dollars set. The new Speed Record Car is a City set with only seventy eight pieces with a pretty color scheme and a mini-figure, the pilot, wearing a traditional Octan red and green suite with a big printed logo.

At the front, the long orange nose hides a tiny wheel but capable of reaching several hundred miles per hour. The cockpit is protected by a big aerodynamic windshield and inside the pilot has the usual: a seat (where is stays almost lying down…) and a steering wheel (better not to move it quickly).

At the back, two 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 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 60145 – Buggy

What a nice small City set. It shows color, playability and some interesting details to enjoy. This new Buggy has only eighty pieces and features only a red and white Dune Buggy with a single mini-figure, the pilot.

With some nice wheels, capable of surpassing any obstacle, this small Buggy looks absolutely sturdy. With the wheel axels placed on the edges, the front shows a couple of lights with stickers and a tow bar. The cockpit is quite large, according to the vehicle’s size and has no kind of doors or windshield, just a long protection bar which gladly opens widely, allowing a better access to the interior.lego-60145-buggy-city

Lego City 2017 – More New Sets

With all the credits going to hothbricks, a few more 2017 City sets have been unveiled. With the exception of a couple of them I must say that this new wave didn’t excite me too much. Too much trailers and too much déjà-vu. However the Pizza Van looks really nice as well as the Sweeper and Excavator.

The nine new sets contain a race plane (60144) a Buggy (60145), a Stunt Truck (60146), the already known fishing Boat (60147), an ATV Race Team (60148), the 4×4 with Catamaran (60149), A Pizza Van (60150), a Dragster Team (60151) and finally a Sweeper and Excavator (60152).lego-city-2017-60144-60145-60146-60147-60148-60149-60150-60151-60152
