1.BEFORE I BOUGHT
Even if I am a hardcore 4-stud fan, I was bit interested, how could look this compactor. When I saw an opportunity to buy it on one Czech auction web, I hadn´t thought too long .
2. IMPRESS WHEN UNPACKED
Quite a few parts for such big box..Two numbered bags, instructions, big parts packed loose in the box. I was quite happy finding three sticker sheets instead of one. I think that it was just mistake, or, could be, that TLC decided to give us spare stickers?
3. IMPRESS BY BUILDING
Building is absolutely uncomplicated and easy. First bag allows you to build vibration stamper, road signs and barriers and lower part of the compactor. Second bag keeps upper part of compactor. 25 minutes and all is built-up.
4. IMPRESS WHEN BUILT - LOOKOUT
I don´t have any complaint, compactor looks quite well, with enough of details. Size ratio to minifigs is authentic as well..
5. IMPRESS WHEN BUILT - PLAYABILITY
Could be good (I am not a child any longer). Two figs, maneuvrable front part of compactor allows to change a driving direction. What I really hate, that the cabin with glass is not fixed enough to compactors body and falls out again and again.
6. GENERAL IMPRESS
Nice add-on to City line, but, in my opinion, not offending, not exciting...
7. FINAL RESULT
I can suggest this set for children, they will probably like it. For AFOLs , like me, I think no need to buy. Even if this set will be not expensive, I am bit fed up of all those Build Theme sets. Even as a parts source no need to buy.
