**December 2012: Lego has delisted this set. It is no longer available directly from Amazon or Lego. Some stock remains with third party retailers, but the price is already rising well above MSRP. Lego replaced this set with the Horizon Express, #10223, in January 2013.**
I am the nut-job parent that you'll see in some of the other train reviews. I grew up with Lego and returned to it when I had kids. Obviously I am terribly partial to Lego, but I'll give you the best review I can so that you can make the decision that is right for your kids. I do not receive free sets or compensation for my Lego reviews.
Introduced in April of 2011, the Maersk Container train continues the tradition begun with the Emerald Night (10194) of a highly detailed and realistic set designed with the train enthusiast in mind and customizable with Power Function accessories (see below). This is a beautiful set, both in the execution of the engine's lines and the use of Maersk blue bricks. The set is an instant classic and ranks as one of the best trains Lego has produced. Normally I would say that this set would be produced for about two years, but it could have a shorter run than normal. When it sells out, third party sites will slowly increase the price beyond MSRP.
The set includes an engine, two container cars, a shunting truck, three containers (one of them with refrigeration details) and three rare mini-figures. The engine is modeled after an EMD SD-40 that ran in Maersk colors for Norfolk Southern. The biggest difference between this engine and the real thing is that the actual engine uses six-wheel bogies; the Lego set uses four-wheel bogies.Read more ›
The name really says it all with this set. It is BREATHTAKING!
It is perfect in every way! The detail to the set is unbelievable. The
complete train is positively HUGE! (A whopping 9 3/4 inches longer
than the Emerald night!) The Maersk blue might be confused with the
regular light blue bricks, but it`s a specialty Maersk color!
I like the blue container truck.(Which is much bigger than it looks.)
The container cars have special train body elements not seen
since the 2009 Lego city set "Helicopter transporter". The full set is
OVERFLOWING with special/rare elements! Probably about 1/3 of
the set is hard-to-find bricks and colors! And by the way, don`t worry
about the stickers and instruction book getting all crumply and bent,
because now the Lego group put those in a special bag with a peice of cardboard which works great! They look like they just rolled of the
printing press! Thank you Lego!
The single thing that bugs me though is that there is not quite
enough containers to supplement the whole train! We only needed
one more, Lego! (The good thing though is the base of the containers
is made of pretty common bricks so you can make your own without to much trouble.) Everything else is flawless, just that little nit-pick
about the containers.
Three minifigures doesn`t seem like a lot for a $120 dollar
exclusive set, but what on earth are you going to do with minfigure
number four? Helpful tip: the section of the instructions that shows
you how to install the power functions is in the back of booklet 2.
I, unfortunately, found that out too late and had to take apart a
rather large amount of the locomotive.Read more ›
