"This set is simple, yet detailed and such a great value! I was so impressed, I bought three more of them. You get a greatly detailed vehicle (which matches up closely to the real thing), plus a customized minifig, extra rims, and the trophy pedestal. It is sticker heavy, but that only makes it look more authentic in this case. Great use of some unique pieces in a new way. I'm looking forward to building the other sets. Inexpensive enough to give away to fellow Lego fans and/or car enthusiasts. I'm surprised I bought this and more surprised how happy I am with it. I originally bought this for an Audi fan, but ended up keeping it for myself."
"I know I have built bigger and more challenging sets, but for some reason this set took me much longer than expected and seemed more challenging. I really enjoyed the build and it is very realistic in details to the real thing. It is sticker heavy, which I usually don't like, but with this it adds to the realism. I love the movable features, but in all honesty I don't believe that the motor functions are needed in this set. Color scheme is great and it shows that Technic is one of the best Lego series and often times, the most under rated."
"I was skeptical of this set prior to purchasing, as I thought it was just going to be a boring, run-of-the-mill truck. I was wrong, and pleasantly surprised. The truck is great, with two well printed minifigs and the tool cart is simply awesome. I really appreciate the spare tire (I wish Lego would do this on more of their 4 X 4 vehicles, including Technic and Creator) as it is really a nice, realistic touch. The color scheme is great and the black rims give it a modern look. I would recommend this set to fans of all ages."
"What a great set, at a great value! Two minifigs, a true depiction of the hero of Star Wars VII, and accurate to the film. This was the first set I bought and assembled to The Force Awakens and really like it. It was an easy build and the play-ability is simple, but it is aesthetically pleasing and simply "fun." I would recommend this set."
"I put this set together tonight and wasn't overly impressed. Granted, I may be too old for this set and the build was really easy, which is great for younger builders and/or beginners. I think the price per piece is a little high, given the pieces and two minifigs. I think the pick-up truck should have had tail lights included and the cop should have had the standard issue classic handcuffs. I do like the new, sporty look of the police car which is very accurate."
"I bought this before the movie coming out, and with reservation. I assembled the transporter and was impressed with the build, the functions, the integration of technic pieces, and array of minifigs. After building this set and being impressed, I went to opening weekend and saw the actual transport in action. It was then that I really appreciated the set, the characters/minifigs, and the play features. I strongly recommend this set, especially for younger builders. I look forward to future sets of this caliber and hope the minifigs keep coming....this set was a great value."
"This is a sneaker hit. A really great build, with new techniques and very detailed; realistic to the movie. Great selection of minifigs! The ship itself is sturdy and full of features. My only complaint is the stickers on the cockpit windshield. The three stickers to this are extremely difficult to apply and line up. No matter how meticulous and careful you are in applying them, they will not properly line up. I believe this is due to the printing and cutting of the stickers themselves, but it would have been great if this was a printed piece. Yes, it is sticker heavy in detail, but it is really great and true to the movie. In my opinion, this is the most underrated set of The Force Awakens wave of Lego sets. Great value, good selection of minifigs."
"This set is fantastic; a great value and plenty of great building techniques. I really like the incorporation of technic pieces now in City sets and other themes. The truck is big, has a realistic look and feel to it, and includes two minifigs. I know there have been many garbage trucks, but this one is really great. Younger fans of Lego will enjoy the play features. I highly recommend this set."
"I really like this set. It is a new, unique vehicle (vessel) in the Lego City Series. I have two similar ferries in my state and this is a great representation. Yes, it doesn't float, but it looks like it is travelling in the deep river carrying vehicles and passengers, making them easy to unload. The color scheme is accurate, and it was fun to build. I wish it came with one more vehicle and/or a motorcycle or bicycle. Maybe one more minifigure. I do wish it had a couple more passenger chairs and a small ladder for the captain. Overall, a great set and great value."
"I generally like this set, but as the previous review stated, it is not accurate. The tiller fire truck should have the ladder at the front of the trailer. The price to piece ration is very high on this set as well. I was really excited about this set, but it required some modification. I've included a photo of my alterations to this set, which was only 17 additional pieces and makes the set more accurate and more attractive. 17 pieces would have made this set a better value and more realistic."
