Review: 7631 Dump Truck

Post by Keetong on Tue 24 Feb 2009, 8:53 am

My First Review

So I decided to start with one of my two most recent sets, 7631 Dump Truck legohappy: The reason I bought this set, was that it looked nice and was reasonbly cheap. Unfortuanly I wasn't able to get it on sale legosad: I have to admit it was really quick to build it took me around ten minutes. legounsure: It fits in great with all my old construction city stuff, the construction part of city never really goes away, from its old sets.

Name:Dump Truck
Theme:City
Year:2009
Pieces:189
Minifigs:1
Price: 19.99USD 12.69GBP 19.99EUR 29.99AUD

Well, it's a pretty attractive box. legoeyesheart

The constructor and his tools

The giant rocks pretty useless as usual. The sign is great idea which they have brough back, but getting the stickers on can be frustrating. The signs got the same problem as the fence, the stickers can get even more frustrating. The little cones are great though, only a few pieces and they look great. The minifigure is pretty normal, as all the other constructors, so nothing great to say about him. The grills on the side and front give it a more realistic look.

The Truck!!!


It has a hinge holding the trailer which means when your turn the front the trailer follows.

Man in his Truck

Its a really simple design for the front, but its affective. When building it, the shafts on the side of the chair came up high and I thought I would be able to fit the mnifigure in.

The Dump Joint

The dump is just as great, the pieces that make up the curve on the side of the trailer are fantastic. The only thing I don't get is the cradle kind of thing at the front. The hinge that holds it together is good but it has fallen of for me quite a few time.

All together now

All looks great together. Sorry about the slant of the fence, there was a crease in the paper.

Summary Review
Playability: 9/10 (lots of contraptions)
Design: 8/10 (the front is amazing)
Price: 7/10 (could be a bit cheaper)
Overall:8/10(Its a great set what more can I say legohappy: )

I voted the way I did, as I had a look at the next-door neighbour's truck and 1) it was out of scale with vehicles such as the Ambulance and Police Car, 2) it is too hard for the excavator from the Construction Site to off-load into. Bit of a shame, as my City needs a dump truck. Otherwise, it does look really nice and builds up really well.
