The epic trucks are coming out and this one is no exception from Lego. The base design comes all the way from the Mobile Command Unit from 1986, but of course expands in terms of size and function. Also, it adds a nice little building and trike to the mix. From that point though, I have some major issues with this set.
The trailer is simply large, but has little function or storage purpose outside of looking like something from CSI Miami. I mean, I thought that you could use the trailer to store the trike, cones and barricade piece,but you have to be a little inventive to get that to work. Also, the little crook cannot be stored within the trailer. The biggest flaw is the little rear containment rack which easily falls out. Very annoying.
For the price and size of this set, you could do better. I like the concepts that they were trying to do here, but the little flaws distract from the overall design/experience.
