Posted 23 January 2010 - 04:44 PM
Pig Farm and Tractor
Set # 7684
Year Released 2010
List Price: £24.99
Front of the box
Back of the box
Side of the box advertising the new City movie ‘Clutch Power’.
The contents of the box – no stickers.
Random page from the instructions
The minifigures – I think the blue overalls are new?
The set itself
New pieces (I'm pretty sure the tyres are new).
I've been waiting to own this since the first grainy pictures last year. I love this set. The Tractor has a fantasic design and of course the pigs to add to the cows of last year are a must have (luckily you get four). Soon we will have camels and ostriches to add to the animal kingdom. Overall 9/10
Cheers - Richard

It's looks like you made it in hurry...
no nice pictures of each part (one for tractor, one for pen, one for trailer)
You should put pig next to minifig and horse to show curious people how big it is.
This set is another win of Lego
-Female in the set with new torso (they could use Tracs Hair here...)
- Pen looks nice
- I love how lego did the crib
- It fits to farm nicely
Me not like:

Thanks for the review, but could you add your personal opinions, especially on the construction of the three elements? From the pictures it seems the build isn't one of the best, there is some details on the tractor but nothing particularly interesting. Also how about the piece selection?
Overall it seems quite overpriced for its size as all the Farm sets, but the fact that they included 4 pigs is a big "+", considering the pigs are probably the reason for 90% of those who will buy this set

This is really a nice little/mid-sized set. I love the Farm theme and the new pig piece is a fantastic new addition to LEGO's piece assortment.
While another tractor would not have been my first choice for an additional farm set, the pig pen and trailer make up for it. In fact, I really like the trailer. It's definately a lot smaller than the grain trailer contained in the previous Farm set and the use of the bendable side plates will serve quite useful for other creations, esp. a train wagon (perhaps I may build down the road). One thing; however, that I think looks awkward is the hitch which seems a bit blocky/clumpsy. The back section looks interesting.
The pig pen has a bit of a Classic Town charm, although it would have been great to see the return of the sink/faucett piece. It's interesting to see the use of a brown fence to raise the back section, but I think it works. The overall color selection will blend in nicely with the large Farm.
I like the new female fig, but it looks like Mr. Green Jeans appears again, this time with a red cap instead of tan fidora (I call window washer attire).
Overall, I like this set, and will most likely buy when available. Oink!
EDIT: Please note: I have added a poll for our Townie fans to vote, and indexed, but your images are too large. Site guidelines are no larger than 800x600. But still, thank you for the review.

Could you maybe make some extra pics from the pig from different angels and how it;s fit on a plate?

I think this is pretty close to being the best farm set Lego have ever done !
Two reasons - 1. the tractor & 2. PIGS !!!
I'll have too buy at least three sets, so I get at least 2 tractors for myself and 1 tractor plus all the pigs to my son (he can't wait to a Lego Three Little Pigs ) !
The green tractor is very realistic and at least on both it and trailier - tool holders to hold your broom and shovel - at last !
Come on April (that's the Australian release date) !
Keep on bricking !

This is yet another great addition to the Farm subtheme. However we have seen alot of tractors but this one is fairly nice.
Yes the female minifigure and her blue overall torso is new
The new pigs however are the real special part about this set
However you can get a pig much cheaper in the Farmer Impulse.
This set though, is still worth it , as the pig pen is very nice and you get carrots.

Not sure if I will end up buying this or not, I've been put off by the farm its self. Every time one of my kids play with it something beaks, it seems way to fragile and this set look the same. What am I saying I have every other farm set so far and I wont start skipping now.
But the pigs do look good and will make some great roast pork
All I need in my farm now is some sheep.

Also the 5 spare cheese pieces is why I'm against the new 1x2 cheese piece, you won't get extras.
