LEGO City 60018 Cement Mixer Review

 LEGO City 60018 Cement Mixer

The LEGO Cement Mixer is a set from the City theme. This set includes two minifigures and follows the recent truck and construction theme LEGO City has used in late 2012 to early 2013. I purchased this set as I was looking for a bigger set that included construction minifigs. This set works perfect for anyone looking to add a semi-truck into their construction/maintenance collection.

 Conclusion


The LEGO Cement Mixer 60018 is a great set but it has a lot of moving parts. During the build, I had to be careful handling the truck as so many parts would move. With this being said, this set would not be recommended for a young child that desires to play with the truck. If you are not going to be playing with the truck on a regular basis, then you will love this set.

The set would make a great display piece, a prop for a photo shoot, or a solid piece for your LEGO City layout.
