Description

Take a closer look at the tipper mechanism: this is comprised of some SNOT bricks attached via clips to the 4x6 plate with hinge pins introduced earlier; four SNOT brackets then attach the tipper. The cab itself is a little bare - not even a gearstick breaks the monontony; there's also no handy place for Terry to put his mug. Use the crane to offload the grain form the cargo ship, place it onto the conveyor and load it onto the truck. I imagine it will keep six-year-olds amused, but they'll be screaming for parental assistance when it comes to threading the winch cable and fishing line. The twin cargo holds are each covered with a bley grille plate attached to two 1x8 plates with door rail; these allow a little movement, as you can see from the forward hold.

While I agree this is a design flaw, I'm actually becoming quite grateful for its appearance in this set since it helps demonstrate something I've been trying to tell fellow AFOLS for a long time: baseplates are not the solution to all of life's problems. I have a larger stack of manuals from the past 3 years of collecting than I do from the 20 years before that - simply because manuals are so much longer or else there are multiple ones. Nowadays in real life, huge buildings often run out of time and out of costs because of a big (too big) complexity and so many different conflicting interests. I really miss the sea oriented classic town dioramas that were including sets from other subthemes too.The 2x2 corner panels, new this year in tan in the Pharaoh's quest line, make an appearance in white; the 36 tan round bricks are most welcome!

Here, a few bricks and a mast are the only decoration, but there's a nice perspective view up to the bridge. Yes, it was a Technic build and thus arguably more advanced than a City set, but these were kids well within the Technic age range. Yes, the 2007 harbor is superior in a number of ways, which is quite ironic since it defies so many conventions AFOLs insist upon. Haha I felt the same way too prior to reading this, good thing despite the excellent review I'm still not sold on this set. Ok, the ship is quite small, but there's a pilot launch and forklift in addition to the usual items, and it too has a raised platform.

For this reason the instructions often like to alternate between colors whenever possible, and use vivid contrasting colors in areas that aren't likely to be seen in the finished model.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. I wasn't thrilled when I first saw photos of the new one and although that this review shows every detail of it I'm still not impressed. The Lego City Harbor Set 4645 comes on the heels of 2009’s popular City Harbor set (7994) which now sells for a small fortune on secondary markets. I found this difficult; I dread to think what kind of porcine auricle the average six-year-old would make of it! The adhesive never came off from it being in the bathtub or swimming pool, and despite the stickers in today's sets being paper-based rather than plastic-based I don't think they'd have any problems with coming off in the water unless you were really rough with the set.

The truck is a relatively simple design, but attractive and functional, and makes a useful addition to the range of CITY trucks. I'm not so keen on Clive's 'bad tan' eyes, which are mean to represent spectacles; none of these faces are new or particularly rare, and Freddie's face and hat combination might be more at home in the Police range. For me, it'll supply a few useful but rather expensive pieces to the collection, while the boat hull and baseplates will go into the useless parts bin next to the Fight in the Flying Wing's wing-piece. The floor of the harbour, and the road the baseplates form, is a mere baseplate-thickness above the waves, with a meagre brick-wall separating road from water.
