Let’s have a short look to a new cool 10 dollars city set, the Airshow Set. Eighty seven pieces, an aircraft with a few interesting details and good handling and a single mini-figure is all that we’ll find in a pretty but small box.
This high speed airplane despite being basic has a quite interesting design. The long nose presents a nice cockpit for the pilot with a large windshield (which opens widely) that covers the entire space and inside the pilot has the essential: a couple of handlers and a seat to maneuver the exhibition machine.
The Monster Truck is a new City set that has been released recently. It’s a typical twenty dollars set, with around two hundred pieces that features a 4×4 Truck with an incredible suspension, a ramp built with plenty of small pieces for some nice jumps, a couple of barrels on fire and a single mini-figures, the truck’s pilot.
The truck looks absolutely cool in my opinion, even for those who aren’t so fan of these types of vehicles. With very big wheels and a high suspension built over a technic structure, the truck can smoothly surpass any obstacle thanks to its working mechanism and through the pictures it’s possible to see some small rubbers between the axles that control that extension feature.
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).
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.
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.
