"When I first saw this set I thought, "I have to have it!" However, after looking it over, I decided not to get it. I wound up buying it after all, when my local Walmart marked it down to $15 since they were going out of business. I felt I couldn't pass it up, and boy did I make a good decision getting this set!
I'll start with the plane. The plane was way better than I anticipated. The interior is extremely well built, and very detailed. It can only seat three people and pilot; however, what do you really expect from a private plane? It stays together extremely well, making it great for play as it is easy to grip and has easy access to the inside.
The service vehicle is very nice. It is compact, so it does not drive the price up, and it has a funny sign that simply says "FOLLOW ME."
The downfall of this set is the limo. I was hoping for a limousine that would seat about 2-3 minifigures, but I was disappointed to learn that it can only seat one passenger as there is a gigantic freezer with a TV in the middle of the limo. I am going to remove this soon and add room for a second passenger.
"While at first I loved the set, the more I used the Mustang, the more flaws I found. The set is well built, and easy to build, however, I feel that the set looks too blocky. LEGO used too many sharp cut ins (ie. the front grill and the side doors) to make the vehicle. The exposed studs also take away from the build. It just does not look right in my eye. However, they did accomplish the goal of making a LEGO car look almost exactly like a Mustang GT. Aside from the flaws with the cut ins and exposed studs, the set is fairly good. I will continue to purchase more LEGO sets from the Speed Champions series."
"This was my first ever large scale set, and I must say it was very difficult! I would like to state really quick that this is not actually my set, but I helped my friend to build it. I loved the building process of this! It was a challenging build, placing all of the wedge pieces was very time consuming but added so much detail; but that just made it even sweeter when you finished building. The finished product is flawless! The bridge looks stunning and very realistic, and the scale is right on the mark! And at $240 dollars for over 4,000 pieces, it is an excellent value."
"I absolutely love this set! It is one of my favorites so far! I love the van because you can ACTUALLY fit more than one person in the van. Most LEGO vehicles can only fit one person, but this can fit two and a dog! Love it!
Back to the actual set, the build stays together extremely well. The camper has nice detail, the van has lots of room (like it should), and the grill is nice bonus that adds more to the set! Great buy!"
"This is a very nice set overall. It comes with a decent amount of boxes to fill the plane with. I love the little service car that is included that adds just a little more to the set. My favorite thing about this set is how the tail comes up. It just adds that bit of realism to the set. If you are looking for a small cargo plane for your LEGO City, this is for you!"
"The set in short is great! The helicopter is small and compact, but gets the job done. I love how it is built brick by brick, instead of big pieces. The airport workers are just enough, and the fuel tank and dolly are a nice touch. The second dolly is a little unnecessary but nice to have. The worker with the guide lights is a big plus, and a very necessary part of any airport. The included mail box is nice because it can be placed anywhere in your city for the citizens to use. Overall, I love the set and hope to see more mail service vehicles in the future!"
"I put this in my 7939 Cargo Train and they work great! I had to remove some parts and and disassemble areas to get them in but it was worth it. They add more detail and are surprisingly bright. I put them on my second channel of the remote so I can control the brightness. I would highly recommend putting this on any train you you can!"
"This is a great little set for anyone who is interested in the Demolition series. The number of minifigures included is great. I love the sledgehammer that comes with the set. The skid steer is compact, but gets the job done. The cones are simple but work. The little "building" (more like a room [part of a room] ) included is great for tearing down. Restating, this is a good set for anyone interested in the demolition series!"
"I was very reluctant to getting this set at first. But when I finally got it, it was worth it. The color scheme stays throughout the whole set, which is very nice. The truck is well built although, I took the spoiler off because that didn't work for me. The trailer holds the boat perfectly, and I love that it is a goose neck. The boat itself is nice. I love how it is very sporty looking and definitely looks like it means business. The only downside to the boat is that when the windscreen goes up, the engine to likes to come with it. Overall, good set."
"This set is home run in my opinion. The ram on the bulldozer can be used on the building (obviously) but they took it a step further and gave you chain --which I appreciate-- to use too. The building is very simple but works for the set. The extra minifigure with the sledgehammer is a good plus too. This set is amazing if you like this sort of stuff."
