Parts & Minifigures
There are a few interesting parts in this set, the main one of course being the claw assembly of the crane. The four claw parts are great, as well as the Technic pin connector with four claw grips. They are held together with an elastic band that gives it a spring return. The claws are very rare, with this colour being unique. It’s only been seen in another set in black – 7596: Trash Compactor Escape from the Toy Story theme. There is also the end piece for truck body, which is new in this colour. Again, this has only been seen before in bright orange for 60083: Snowplough Truck.
2015 saw the introduction of a new 2×4 wheelbase component called the Bearing Element 2×4 Mini Snap. It’s a new way LEGO wants us to add wheels to vehicles, and I’m guessing we’ll see more of them in the future. Other great parts include the grey truck side walls, the plate with wall 4x3x3, and four more elements that are very hard to come by – the 1×1 flat transparent tile, the 1×2 profile brick in sand green, the 2x6x2 plate with 4 vertical studs, and the 1×2 hinge plate, both in bright blue. Of course, there’s also the conveyor belt. While it isn’t rare, it’s only been seen in 6 sets since 2011.
