Set Number: 7848
Name: Toys R Us delivery truck
Year of Release: 2010
Price: 29.99 Euro
this is my first review of a Lego set. I hope you like it.
The box shows our brave hero, who arrives just in time to fill up the shelves of Lego City´s first Toys'R'Us.
As you can see, the poor saleswoman already tried to bribe the kid, by giving him a car for free.
The box is about the same size as the one from his yellow brother 3221. (Just a couple of inches thicker).
And, as always, it is barely half filled.
The sides of the box shows us the Minifigs, and the front picture.
The back gives an impression of the shop´s interior, as well as the proof, that the boy
only wanted to buy Lego (and no toy-car).
After opening the box, we´ll get 4 bags, 2 instruction-books, a DSS, and 3 dark bley plates (one of them is a baseplate).
The DSS (sorry for the blurry pic) gives us 14 stickers.
Fortunally, my sheet wasn´t bend, or wrinkled.
A random page from the 2nd book.
This is, what you get, when you open (and sort) the 4 bags.
The inventory pages (also blurry... even though, I used my scanner for this one).
Here are the 3 Minifigs.
The Driver, is just the same, as in 3221. The saleswoman has a dark bley jacket with a purple scarf.
The boy wears a white/light blue hoodie...
...which is also printed on the back.
Since the Truck is basicly the same as 3221, I'll just show the results of the first three bags:
The Truck (Bags 1 & 2)
The Trailer (Bag 3)
Finally, we´ll look at the contents of the 4. bag:
Random exterior shot during the build.
Random interior shot during the build.
A close-up of the 3 new Lego-Lego-sets.
Unfortunally, just one police-bike. The fire-truck comes in 2 different boxes.
One is just a tile on a plate, and the other has the tile attached to a 2x2 brick.
The Lego-sets are attached to the yellow plate, to avoid their downfall.
The trans-clear panels work nicely as shelves.
A close-up of the toy-car and the small hovercraft.
They are attached via a black 1x1 round plate.
The other side of the shop, featuring the miniatures, and the toy-weapons in a barrel.
The front of the store is covered by two 2x2 tiles and a blue 2x4 tile. Each of them gets it's own sticker.
The completed store. (Bag 4).
Interior shot of the store.
And finally a picture of the entire set.
The truck itself is just great.
Just like his 3221-counterpart he´s huge, he´s powerfull, and a great addition to any Lego-town/-city/-collection.
The minifigs are also fantastic.
The driver may be the same, as in 3221, but you can always change parts and create new/different civilians.
Speaking of civilians, the saleswoman is adorable. A nice torso (jacket with scarf), and not (yet) overused hair.
As for the boy: I like his hoodie and the uncommon face with brown eyebrows and the smirky smile.
The Store may seem a little small, but it is nevertheless a nice piece of diorama, which can easily be extended.
Plus, it is packed with a lot of toys... Lego, miniatures, "toy"-weapons, and a bear.
A comparison-shot of 3221 and 7848.
The "supporting cast".
Thank you for the read.
