Pieces: 40; 1 spare

I got two today - for some of the spare parts...

As usual for a promo, comes in a sealed platic bag, with a picture of the completed truck and it's driver:

And as usual, a bit of advertising:

During building. You can see the model (at build step 4) in the top left corner, the remaining parts in the middle. And no, I DIDN'T build the fig first! after all, who does't have a fire fig that looks like this one? Also note that there are 3 blue 1x1 round trans blue - one of these is the ONLY spare!

Overall: A nice exclusive set. For 65p each, they're not bad at all. Plus you get a nice set of parts which can be used for other models.

The more I look at it, the more I think it should be white instead of red, with an ice-cream vendor instead of a fire-fighter.
Thanks for the review.
