The traffic light has stopped working and it’s chaos in the streets of LEGO® City! Call in the Light Repair Truck, lift the repairman into position with the crane arm and fix the traffic light to get the traffic moving once again.

THE REVIEW:

Life in LEGO CITY is not always about the crime or the fires, there are hardworking LEGO minifigures that have work duties in order to make sure the city runs well on a daily basis.

And keeping up with the maintenance are the workers you see with their light repair trucks.  Making sure that light is continuing to emit from the light stand and that the traffic signals are indeed working.

First, let’s take a look at the minifigures!

And this work gives service with a smile.  Wearing his protective glasses, he sacrifices his life by being lifted on the lifting crane with no backup to watch over him.  That’s bravery and also workman’s comp waiting to happen!  Kidding.  But this is LEGO CITY afterall?

With the often smiling worker doing his repairs, the actual minifigure is a good city worker LEGO minifigure sporting the orange and blue outfit.   The graphic on the front is printed.

The set comes with a light repair truck with a lifting crane, basket with two cones.  Also, a street light with traffic lights.

The truck is fairly simple to put together.   Similar to other vehicles, the doors open and you can remove the top of the vehicle to place your repair worker inside.  There are holders on both doors are holders that can hold a hammer and wrench.  The tires are rubber.  As for stickers, the main stickers are on the license plate, the hood and also the top ceiling of the vehicle.

I like the folding lifting crane, which is placed on a rotation platform, so it can easily position the repair worker near the lamp and easily turn.


I really enjoy LEGO CITY  and the various types of workers that have been created.  For this set, you get one minifigure and a functioning vehicle with a rotating and elevating crane with a basket.

The set is great for those wanting to add a light stand to their city, but also another LEGO city worker that can be used for a variety of maintenance work.

While the vehicle may be seen at various retail, it is a product that has been recently retired.   Still, you get a minifigure, a truck and a lightstand/signal light.  Definitely a LEGO CITY set worth checking out!

RATING: **** (4.5 stars out of 5)
