The cement truck actually looks even better than the 2007 (which I still :grin_wub: ), I like the flatbed too......but it reminds me of some I have seen....I wonder where ? :laugh:  
These pictures are appeared along with the Super Heroes, Chima, etc., on another German website.

Edit - I like the front ends of both trucks.....very realistic.....oh, yeah and you know why we haven't seen images before this......March 2013 release date for Germany that's why ! :blush:

Cheers for posting these images LT. I too like the cement mixer but for me the jury is still out on the flatbed but it may grow on me. What ones does it remind you of?

The flatbed is part of the 7642 garage range. That's cool. Dark red car as well. That's a nice change. A must have set for me.
Cement truck is a definite improvement on the last one. Fitting right in with the last construction sets. Another must have. I liked the old one but always intended to modify it. Now I'll just replace it.
Now, where's the tank truck got to?

Im totally impressed with these two sets!  I really like how the flatbed and all the previous tow trucks match in color.  The cement mixer is totally heavy duty looking. Must have sets for me!!!!

Perhaps an exclusive set to tie into the Lego City video game or an unrelated building to the police or fire sets.....who knows ? :laugh:

I'm confused as to the fire bike.  I have never heard of a motorcycle being used on the fire department here in the United States, and I've been around the fire department my whole life.  Maybe it's a European/Asian thing?

A Google Image search for "Feuerwehr Motorrad" (German for "fire department bike") brings up countless fire bikes. One article said they're used in Greece for their maneuverability.

Edit:
http://www.feuerwehr...um-saisonstart/ used in Germany
http://www.motorrad-...rwehr-motorrad/ used in Hong Kong
http://www.fotocommu...isplay/24055637 used in Indonesia

The hood/bonnet? It's an element from the Cars theme and some of this year's Ferrari promo polybags. Here are some examples. The robbers' van in the Museum Heist set has the front built the same way. Quite nice IMO.

Though I'm not a fan of the fuel pump, note the hose on the pump is thicker than the one on the actual tanker....shouldn't that be the other way round if I remember my Year 11 Industrial Physics ! :wink:

I'll probably pick up both vehicles, as I do not have any versions of them. My favorite is the Tow Truck set though, as I love the female figure and the towed car. :wub:
Seeing how LEGO is adding more bang for your buck in 2013, I really see these being $20. :classic:

You're right, I'm just wondering why only three this time round.....perhaps they'll keep three from last year or add them to the series because they are highly profitable.
Oh, and by the looks of it when I was editing my last post someone bet me to the punch on the tanker truck ! :rofl:
