This review is from: LEGO City 4202 Mining Truck (Toy)
Lego dad back again! Lego city is under construction for 2012, and here to help out is a large and in charge "mining" truck. This was purchased as a birthday gift for my 7 year old (I also buy for myself as an AFOL ((Adult Fan Of Lego) so I do my best to give the parent perspective on this one. The set is a blast to put together, it took my son about an hour and me about 10 minutes the first go around. You get 1 mini figure (who is a pretty generic worker), a sign, 2 boulders, gold nuggets and the truck. Overall value is okay, I wish they would have included a 2nd mini and I really miss the shiny gold plating as opposed to the dull "goldish" spray they use now. For rebuilding it's an excellent set, the giant tires have already been used for my son's "monster truck" and they limited the number of stickers on this build. This is a great one for the kids, price point and piece count keep it from being a 5. If you can find it on sale, or part of a BOGO deal then I highly recommend picking this one up.
Pro: Bright colors, very sturdy Lego vehicle to actually play with (doesn't fall apart too easily, LARGE tires!
Cons: Only 1 mini figure, price point for a non branded theme is high for the piece count.
