Perfect!
" Picked this set up whilst on sale and I have to say it's awesome!
The set includes 2 instruction manuals, 1 sticker sheet and 2 numbered bags. The build was pretty easy, I only made 1 or 2 mistakes.
There are 2 minifigures included and I especially like their hair pieces! I also really like the inclusion of the red scooter, since it used to be an uncommon piece.
The pizza van itself is a 6 stud wide vehicle. I appreciate the newer style wheels because they do not stick out further than the fenders. In the cab there is a steering wheel and surprising no red coffee mug. I also wish there was a proper seat piece for the minifig to sit on, but apart from that I really liked everything else! The main part of the van, (lets call it the kitchen), was extremely detailed for such a small space. There was an opening oven, cash register, tomato sauce and ketchup dispensers and even a can of drink and a serve of fries! Something not to forget is the inclusion of the new quarter round tile with pizza prints! The set also includes 1 full size pizza!
The sides of the vehicle can open a full 180 degrees, and close just perfectly against the 1x2 panel pieces.
Moving along from the vehicle, some of the stickers were a bit difficult to apply. The set also includes a small dining area with a nice lime green umbrella!
This is probably the best great vehicle set Lego has ever made!
Would give this set a 9.5/10!

Great Starters Set
" I got this set because I wanted to start getting into Lego Power Functions. And this set was the perfect starter set! Firstly the box is actually very big for the size of the set. It is about a 1/3 full. Inside the box I found a booklet, a M-Motor, a battery box, a control switch, a pair of LED's lights and a bag full of parts to help you use with this set.
Booklet: The booklet shows all the information you need to know about batteries and other sets that are Power Functions ready.
M-Motor: The M-Motor (or medium motor) is about 6 studs in length and about 3 studs wide and high. It is actually quite fast for it's size. Since it's the smallest motor, you would probably expect that it would perform terrible, but surprisingly it doesn't. It has a lot of toque and is quite strong and robust. Definitely a good motor for mechanisms, machines and small cars.
Battery Box: The battery box is about 11 studs in length,8 studs high and about 4 studs wide. It takes 6 AA batteries (9 volts). On the top is an orange switch for turning it on or off. It can reverse the current so it can go in forward or in reverse which is pretty cool.
Control Switch: The control switch is 4 studs long, and about 3 studs high and 2 studs wide. If you turn on the battery box with the control switch attached and the motor or lights attached to the switch, nothing will happen. You have to then pull the orange lever on top of the switch forward (which would make the motor turn forward) or pull the lever back (which would reverse the current - make the motor turn backwards). If you do this with the lights it will just turn them on, no matter which direction the switch is in.
Lights: The lights can fit in Lego Technic beams or in studded beams. In the middle of the cord is a separation which means the the lights are separated. They are LED's so they are quite bright.
Pieces: In the small bag of pieces you will receive some gears, axles and 3 universal joints.
Overall this is a great set especially if you are new into Power Functions, like me!
Thanks reading.
