Lego 60018 – Garbage Truck

The Garbage Truck is a new 2016 City set that will soon hit stores. It has two hundred and forty eight pieces that will feature the new Truck that will replace the 4432 model (from 2012), two workers (the driver and the garbage worker) with lots of accessories that include some trash, a shovel and a broom and finally, a big green trash bin that will be grabbed by the truck.

First of all, I must say that in the beginning, this vehicle didn’t excite me at all, mostly because of the garbage collection mechanism, not in terms of technical motives but because of its aesthetic.Lego-60018-Garbage-Truck-cityNow that I’ve passed that, it definitely has some interesting Continue reading

City Traffic Sets – HD Pictures

And traffic sets have also something new to should. These great quality pictures of the cement Mixer, of the flat bed truck and of the new tank truck are not only very good in terms of resolution but mostly some of them are new showing the models from different sides and perspectives.

The tank truck with the exception of the set box gives us finally a decent perspective of the models showing nice details such as small fuel station, or even the top of the truck which in the previous post wasn’t clear enough.

Lego 60018 City – Cement Mixer

The new Cement Mixer is a city set that was recently released in some countries and overcomes the lack of the old 2007 blue cement mixer left. This new set has exactly two hundred and twenty one pieces and besides the vehicle, it also brings a couple of street workers and some interesting tools such as the wheelbarrow and the bunch of single stud pieces that represent the cement.

If we look at both vehicles at the same time, there is the danger of thinking that they are similar vehicles in terms of features. However the differences are quite huge. Looking at the cab, and particularly at its detailed picture in the set box, we can see that it has a tipper mechanism, which is simply a great innovation in city trucks.The idea is obviously as we sometimes unfortunately see on the real world, have access to the engine, Continue reading

Lego 60017 and 60018 City – Finally Revealed

Finally, we can have a look of the new Cement Mixer and of the new Flatbed Trucks. The yellow Cement Mixer looks really great just by looking at the set boxes. Unfortunately is too soon to find out how the mixer cylinder will rotate but we can see by now that the set will have two road workers with some tools and plenty of cement little pieces and also a red wheelbarrow to transport them.

The Flatbed truck will surely be also a nice addition to the next year’s portfolio because it is a small truck different from everything, specially all its engine’s hood parts and consequently all the esthetic – and for better I must say. The flat bed will also have a tipper mechanism which easily will lower the bed, in order to tower another vehicle.

And yes, the set will also have another vehicle, Continue reading
