Lego City 7642 – Garage

The Garage is one of the most pleasant sets that i have in town. With almost one thousand pieces and four mini-figures this set is surely different from all the other buildings.

The six parking places are also in the retail version (I remember that the set presented before was only part of a exposition, with no identification) as well as the nice and efficient lifting mechanism of the platform. Continue reading
