Parts & Minifigs
This set introduces some parts in a new colour (bright orange), and a new part altogether! The new coloured parts are the 1x4x1 roof tile (you get six), two 4×8 plates,, and the end piece for truck body. This piece is also found in 60075: Excavator and Truck, but in yellow. Either way, it’s a first for this year! The one piece that this set introduces to the LEGO world is the 3x4x3 bowed wall. You get three in the set, so it’s worth picking up. There are a lot of other parts that are found in pretty much every City vehicle, but the ones that are unique are great to have.
Build-wise, it’s pretty simple, with a couple of Technic elements thrown in for the salt-spreader mechanism at the back. You’ll need to be careful when fitting the tyres, as they’re not reversible. They have holes in the side of the tread that’s meant to be hidden, so if you can see holes along the side of the tyre, they’re on wrong, and may not spin properly. There are a lot of stickers for a relatively small set, which is a shame. It’s pretty common to have a sheet of stickers with City vehicles, but 12 seemed a bit excessive to me.
Next on the list of reviews will be 21301: Birds from the LEGO Ideas range.
