I bought these for my nephews who were just turning 9 years old. They loved them! They had them put together in no time and really enjoyed playing with them.
awesome,thanks dad and walmart for your service
I needed a miner in my lego city. I found this cool litte set for a reasonable price so i bought it. Pros:
Miner with awesome helmet.
explosive sign Cons:
This is a fantastic little Lego model. The design is simple and quick to build yet results in both a visually pleasing and durable model suitable for the rougher play-styles of younger builders. Although it is admittedly a 'small' model, both in it's size and it's content, it is priced accordingly so I don't consider that an issue. The greatest 'pro' perhaps is the how well the model functions as an introductory set, both to the mining series but also to lego in general. Its occupies that 'Goldilocks' zone of being simple and quick enough for a younger individual to build by them selves, but challenging enough for there to be a real sense of accomplishment attached to its completion. Moreover if you looking for a first model, but don't want to invest in one of the more expensive with out knowing if Lego is his/her thing, then this is exactly the kind of model for you. To conclude: Pros
Suitable for the younger builders,
Visually very pleasing,
Durable enough to be played with as a toy rather then a model,
Good value for money,
Excellent Introduction peace to Lego as a hole. Cons
Maybe be a little underwhelming for the older or more seasoned builder unless intended to complete the mining set or to be bundled with another model.
This set is very cool, especially for smaller children and novice builders.
Storage space in back Cons:
Dynamite doesn't really explode (lol, just kidding)
Nothing attaching dynamite and trigger
Things fall out of crate during play Overall this is a great set. It is a VERY easy build. Rate: 9 of 10
this truck is amazing and has everything a gold mining truck would need and is cheap for all the details that are included lego really impressed me with the great new mining sets
This set is very good for people who want to have a mine, but don't want to spend the big bucks for the larger sets. This is perfect for a small mining operation, and the truck looks awesome. Anyway, on to the pros and cons. Pros:
Truck looks awesome
Dynamite and timer feature
Explosive Warning sign
Boulder with Gold in it Cons:
None! Even if you are not building a mine, you should still buy this set, It's great. Thanks for reading!
This truck is a very small set, yet the playability is very large. The set contains a variety of mining pieces
-stone( with gold on the inside) overall i would recomend it for people wanting to build a city.
Great sey :D
I purchased this set first thing after I discovered the mining theme and immediately fell in love with it. I build MOCs, and after getting this set, I built and entire mine to go with it! I eventually purchased the Front Loader and Dump Truck and added that to the mine. It looks fantastic!
Very great value for what you get. :)
THIS IS AN AWESOME SET
Cons. 1minifig,truck,box with various items
I got this with the excavator transport recently at the lego store. The truck is yellow like the excavator and carries tools. The design is a perfect lookin pick-up truck. Don't forget the miner has brand new look and helmet with light and I just love the box of dynamite and sign. By the way the sign has a cool sticker with explosive picture on it. Thanks fur readin.
Right away we go to the Pros and Cons.
Nice pieces, good size, nice design - the wheel guards are new, and not easily broken, Cons:
Only one guy, one boulder The neat pieces it gives are the boulder, TNT, jackhammer, wheel guards, gold crystals, and crate. the license plate holders were just what I needed, since I only had one. This product is a good starter with mining.
the mining set of legos was really a great idea.
Hey guys. You may know me as Coollegoman from many other reviews, but I haven't posted on that account since around 2011 and I just want to continue with writing reviews for everyone. After buying this set sometime in 2012 from the LEGO Store in Bluewater, I quite liked the theme concept of the set, and thus decided to buy the set. Pros:
The set was stable, and despite the presence of many small parts, managed to hold together.
The price was rather nice for a little set like this, however the compliment of another Miner minifigure may have been nice.
Despite the set being quite good value for money and was able to withstand rough and though, it could have been a little more detailed, maybe with some decal bricks. If I was you, and if you have quite a bit of pocket money in the bank, I would buy it, but I would recommend buying something else for the price if you don't have much pocket money left. I hope you are now able to make a decision whether to buy this or not, and thanks for reading!
~Lego Thanks for reading
I brought this 4x4 with some money i got for my birthday. and I puled the old axles out and put some bigger axles and tyres on, made the truck look heaps better. Because the standared tyres just wern't going to cut it where I go mining! lol
This set is great. It looks good and the crate is crammed with accessories! The minifigure is ok but is common in the mining series. The truck is very well designed. I hope that LEGO do more trucks in this style. Pro and Con time! Pro's
hard to cram all accessories in crate This set is excellent and £7.99 seems fair. I would recommend this to all!
I got this for my birthday. There are only 102 pieces which sounds like a lot, but really the 4x4 is about 15 cm in length. I think that the accessories for the truck (Dynamite with timer, Pump Jack, and Explosion sign) are cool. I also like that there are flashing lights and you can clip pick-axe and jack-hammer to the side of the 4x4. Overall, I like it but still, not worth $14.99
My 4 year old son and I pretend this 4x4 truck is the job site supervisor's truck. We have the entire mining set and this little one started it all for us.
From the pictures on the box, I expected a so-so truck. Like so many other trucks Lego has made over the years.
However, I was pleasantly surprised to see the level of details on it. Like the small bar in front that could be seen as a winch. And the third brake light in the back of the cabine.
Playability is large, with the dynamite an the drill to get to the gold.
The truck driver is now the boss of the mine.
-truck can be played with without bits falling off
-lots of extra gear for the miner to use
-driver has to put up his arms to fit in the truck. Recommended!
This is a great starter set for the mining sub-theme. It comes with a lot of accsessories and has nice deatails. It is also very fun to play with. It would go great with the loader and tipper (I don't have that set yet). Now for pros and cons.
-lots of accsessories
-I don't have any cons!
never get this lego et its filld with challinge im not recomending
