2017 Nuremberg Toy Fair, in Germany, has just started and with it a lot of information about new Lego set is gradually surfing in the Internet, particularly, my Favorite Lego theme, City, that immediately caught my attention, with some awesome news to show.
Promobricks has done a great photo report where is possible to see the return of the Cost Guard subtheme (that includes among other a coast guard Headquarters and a Sea rescue Plane), the Jungle Family (with lots of heavy vehicles and the Jungle Exploration Site as the head set), the new Bus Station, the Fun at beach, a set with plenty of mini-figures just like the Fun in the Park (60314), and finally for now the new Cargo Terminal. That’s definitely a lot to enjoy! Have a look at Continue reading →
The ATV Race Team is a 2017 City set with two hundred and thirty nine pieces that features a cool truck with a trailer, a couple of race All Terrain Vehicles, and two racing pilots with assorted accessories, that includes a small fuel tank, a spare wheel and some tools to fix the malfunctions.
The concept and the vehicles aren’t properly new but together, I think that they make a really nice set with lots of options to play with. The sturdy truck is similar to other city models and shows a nice color scheme with some additional stickers.
Here is another great vehicle from the new wave of City sets. The new Sweeper and Excavator is perhaps one of the biggest Winter presentations, until the moment, and features around three hundred pieces and surely a lot to play with.
The set includes a truck with a double sweeper at the front, a long trailer that is considerably wide according to the usual standards, a yellow excavator, two mini-figures (road workers) and some additional accessories like tools (a wrench, a shovel, a broom and a jackhammer), a traffic sign with a light on top, a couple of road signs and a small wall under construction.
The Pizza Van is a new 2017 City set that will shortly hit stores and perhaps one of my favorites until the moment. It looks absolutely fantastic, filled with plenty of nice details to enjoy (and also a few cons as well) as well as a great touch of playability.
The new Pizza Van has around two hundred and fifty pieces and features the Pizza Vehicle, a small red motorcycle, a round esplanade table with a green sunshade and a pizza slice on top and, finally, two mini-figures ( the pizzaiolo and a female costumer with a couple of accessories).
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).
