"This set is one of those sets where it doesn't look fun, but when you get it, you end up surprised that it does. The build was super easy and a great way to have fun.
Pros: -The lifting feature is really awesome and works extremely well. -The color is just the right shade of orange, making it a great appeal. -You can fill the truck up with your own bricks. -It looks realistic. Some Lego Vehicles look a little bit abstract, which isn't bad, but it's nice to get a realistic vehicle sometimes.
Cons: -The garbage pieces can get easily lost. -When dumping the garbage into the back, the pieces can fly all over the place. -There's no place for the other garbage man. I would've liked if there had been a spot for him.
All in all, I love this set. I found it was worth every penny. And hey, someone has to keep Lego City's' streets clean."
"I love this set! It's so simple yet it's excellent! I got this set thinking it was cool, and it did not disappoint me! The caravan is so comfortable, it makes me jealous of the minifigure in it. Also, the van can fit 2 minifigures, which is a plus. It has a some dashboard gadgets that shows the fuel in the car and a speedometer. The van has such a smooth design, as well as the caravan. The caravan even has a coffee machine! Now for the pros and cons:
Pros: - Caravan is so comfy looking - Van easily fits 2 minifigures and a dog - Both vehicles feel complete - The grill comes with 2 hot dogs, so both minifigures can get one - 2 mugs come with this, each a different color, so you can tell who's mug is who's - The caravan can fit with Lego set 60058 SUV with Watercraft - It's real easy to fit the minifigures
Cons: - It's difficult to fit 2 minifigures on the bed, so one will have to sit on the chair in the caravan - The minifigure's arms have to be raised in order to close the door of the caravan - It's annoying to fit a minifigure into the driver seat, so you'll have to remove the arch and put it back in - The stand for the caravan is annoying, so it's easier to use a robot claw brick - There really isn't any place to store the grill, so you either put it on the roof or the caravan - There is a tan line that goes around the van
Despite the cons. I still like the set. Sure the cons are annoying but it's not a big deal. The tan line can be seen as a custom design for the van. This is one of my favorite sets I have purchased! All the Great Vehicles are awesome, and definitely a must have for all builders!"
"So I got this set today because I wanted to have a fire truck, because I already had an ambulance and a few police vehicles. Building it was really fun, and the set is so satisfying! After playing with it, here are some pros and cons. Pros: - Ladder runs smoothly - Fits the typical fire truck image - The fire build can be used on any set you have - The hose is a stud-shooter so you can blast the fire away - The cab is big enough to fit 2 firefighter minifigures, in full gear - You get a bunch of tools to use - You get an oil canister, a nice little barrel - The sign with the oil canister can be used in lab MOCs
Cons: - Removing the roof of the cab can be annoying, as I sometimes grab the white part then realize only the red roof can be removed - Ladder doesn't sit completely so it's loose, but it's not too bad
This set is a great buy. What's cool is if you have Lego set 60060 City Auto Transporter, you can take the ladders in that set and add it to the fire truck and make the ladder really long. Also if you have Lego set 70404 King's Castle, You can take the ladder from that set and increase the length even more. With all those ladders, the ladder length can reach a foot in length. The price may not be ideal to some, the play value makes up for that. So this is one of the most awesome sets I have! I recommend this set!"
"This is a great set. I think the bike was cool, and I love the baby dragon in the set. It can curl up into a ball. However I do have a few complaints. My biggest one is that Cole isn't a ghost in this set. I've been trying to get that figure for over a year, even purchasing the set that comes with it, only to find out Ghost Cole is not in it. Second complaint is that the studs fire off a little too easily, and I keep having to find the studs. Despite those, I have a few cons. It comes with a dragon and, second, The bike was fun to build. Would've preferred if we got ghost Cole in the set, but other than that, I love the set."
"I don't have the full series as I only collected 2 minifigures. But they are amazing!! I have the Fly Monster and the Zombie Businessman. There are more to collect but this is easily one of the best series Lego has made! We get 16 monster figures which will go great for Halloween! They are unique monsters that are all amazing! I could buy lots of these minifigures!!!
Pros: - new, unique lego bricks like Fly Monster's head - redesigns to old minifigures, like the wolf man AKA the werewolf - great addition to monster fighters series!
Cons: - The price can be better, as $4 is a bit pricey for a minifigure
Overall, this is a unique series of minifigures! :)"
"I recently obtained this set, and I think this set is good, but some issues arose. I love the color scheme and the pick-up truck is awesome looking. However, I don't like how easy the build was, and I wish they added alternate hairpieces as a bonus. That being said, I still enjoyed building the set and it is a fun set to play with and looks good on display. I also loved the different building technique, like the way the trailer connects and the all black tires. I like tires built like that, because you don't see it often. I did not regret my purchase."
"I got this set mainly for Drax, Gamora and Star Lord. The ship was incredibly awesome and it was a very fun build! Sometimes when I build, it can get boring but not this set. I love the way the ship looks and the boombox is just amazing. This set also came with Ronan which was an added bonus. This can even be used with other minifigures, maybe the rebels from Star Wars or perhaps even some Minifigures from the small minifigure packs. This set i definitely worth the money!!!!!"
"This is just awesome! The dragon reminds me of a robot dragon in The Heroes of Olympus book series named Festus. I always loved dragons and this was just awesome. I like how we have good Garmadon and evil Sensei Wu so you can have Sensei Wu and Evil Wu fight and same deal with both Garmadon minifigures. This set is a must have for your Lego collection. It may be pricey, but it's worth the purchase! GET THIS SET!!!"
"This was a fun set to build, somewhat. It took me a while to build. Now pros and cons! SPORTS CAR: Pros: -Looks very cool -can fit a briefcase or whatever you like on the back -A nice short build -Price Per Piece is very good Cons: -Just the stickers and they're not hard to put on FLATBED TRUCK: Pros: -The feature works perfectly -The inside of the truck can fit 2 minifigures with a little effort -Looks very cool Cons: -Some stickers are hard to put on -The string is so frustrating to tie up (It took me 10 min. to tie it up mostly because 1. I hardly get sets with string 2. my hands were very shaky 3. I messed up so badly on one of the steps) -The flatbed part of the truck keeps falling off All in all, this is a good set. I don't play with the set too much but the Price Per Piece is very good and if you want a challenge get this set because getting the string knotted is very hard (I misread the step but it worked out in the end). So what I can say is This is a must get set, especially if you want practice with sets with string having to be tied. If your good with string, still get it. So that's it really: GET THIS SET IF YOU CAN!!!"
"I got this set originally so I could replace my Cole ZX minifigure. However this set is super fun. Apparently, Cole's ZX armor can fit. The Stone Warrior is cool too. The one in Kai's Fire Mech I called "Squirt". The one in this set I call "Bigger Squirt". The Earth sword is excellent. This set only took me about 20-30 minutes to build, despite the fact it was a bit hard. The stickers are a pain and the drill feature took me a few minutes to build. All in all, awesome set."
