Release Year: 2016
Pieces: 248 (with two minifigures)
The Garbage Truck included brand new bright orange wall elements in both the 1x2x3 and 1x4x3 varieties which are still only available in this set, as well as a couple of bright orange 1×2 bricks with horizontal clip, also found in one The Force Awakens sets, 75140: Resistance Troop Transporter. Other interesting elements include a 2x4x2/3 bright orange plate with bow, and some hinge plates. I was particularly happy with the vertical windscreen, the fish, and the banana. I’ve not got many of these, so having some extra copies of them was great.
Design / Appearance: 14/20
This set is still available at retail. For a $30 set, and you’ll most likely be able to find it on sale somewhere in the country, it’s good value. There are some good parts. If anything, the parts can come in useful somewhere. Sure, the set won’t really increase in value that much, but it’s still rather cheap.
It’s another garbage truck – the last proper one we saw for City was back in 2012 with 4432: Garbage Truck. There hasn’t been too many decent ones, so getting this one is most likely worth it. After all, what city is complete without a garbage truck? Without them we’d all be living in filth.
Next week I’m taking a look at a very exciting set, and one I purchased nice and cheap from LEGOLAND Malaysia – 60097: City Square. It’s a big one!
