I usually enjoy these Traffic or Racing City sets, even when I don’t pretend to buy them, and this one surely follows the rule. It looks rather pretty with green and red, the color of Octan Racing, and it won’t be difficult to find a couple of interesting features to enjoy.
The new 4 x 4 Off Roader is a new City set with exactly hundred and seventy six pieces that will be responsible for the off road vehicle, a small cart with lots of tools, two mini-figures (the pilot and a mechanic), a small fuel tank and an island with the Octan flag with a scorpion nearby.
With four XXL black tires and a raised suspension, this racing car couldn’t have a sturdier look, capable of surpassing any kind of obstacle. The engine isn’t very big but shows plenty of additional elements around such as an emergency bar at the front and plenty of lights just on top of the grid.
The cockpit has a couple of side doors and the steering wheel is placed right in the middle which unable the possibility of seating the two guys inside. Just below the doors, two bars, one on each side, will help the pilot to easily enter the car and at the front, just on top of the windshield, there are also four powerful spotlights to view the way at night.
Unfortunately for now there isn’t any picture of the back but, as far as I can see, there is, at least, a small structure for the spare tire and a couple of clips for some tool. Talking about these, the small cart is probably the most extensive that I‘ve seen in term of tools. Ten available accessories like for instance an oil tin, a screwdriver, a hammer, a wrench and much more are ready to assist the mechanic to solve any breakdown.
Overall, it’s another City Traffic set that will surely have lots of new fans. The car itself with the big tires and plenty of color look really cool and the mini-figures with the Octan suites are absolutely a great added value. The set will hit stores shortly (probably it will be already available in a few markets) with a retail price around the twenty dollars.
