Roll in the drum

Time to start mixing, also time for a well earned Tea Break,

The cement is all ready now.

And the 2 left over bits.  Extra cement is always useful and not really wasted.

Overall, a nice little set and I am pleased to see little sets appearing again at long last.  The only negative is with the drum of the mixer, although the angle can be adjusted you cannot tip the contents out of the mixer.

All in all I would say 8/10 for a good little set?

Comments...? ? ?

Edit by Hobbes: Replaced pictures with clickable thumbs and corrected set number.

Aww man!

I hate that face.

It doesn't match any of my other lego heads!

In my opinion, it's not even lego-ey.

Thanks for the review. I will probably miss this set as I have too many workers already!  :-D

I have a few of this head... It's one of the multipurpose heads, it's even been used as a viking!  *wacko*

Thanks for the very thorough review! Looks good, but I see they didn't include the new 4x4x1/3 circle piece. Ah well, did you see/buy any other Impulse sets?

Check out Eurobricks' RPG, Mafia and Wargames forum for the fun times!

i tink its better if you resize the pics before uploading to ur brickshelf account. Picasa2 is a good tool to resize ur pics. use the "export" function.  ;-)

Anyway, nice review! Looks like i will be getting all of the CITY impulse sets except for the Fire fighter one. Maybe more of those Large Bin sets. heh.. thanks for the pics! Is it possible if you scan the rest of the sets at the back of the manual? Thanks in advance!  :-D

OMG I absolutely love how you reviewed this set, I think you are the only person I've ever seen on Eurobrick with such a thorough review.  I read Eurobricks daily and this really raises the bar in terms of how a person does a review.  Please do not resize your pics, they are perfect, crisp, large, thorough, and clear; it gives anyone who really wants info on the set just about everything they need to know about it.  I had no idea they used that lil "thing" to have the cement mixer spin, cool idea  ;-) .  Nice set, but perfect perfect review.  Thanks much!   X-D

Thanks for the review, this looks like a nice set to have multiple copies of...

I think that you may have mistyped the setnumber, as I was expecting this cute car when I read the title (I wondered how you could see a cementmixer in this set...)  :-P
