FIRST IMPRESSION | Score: 8

A very highly detailed piece; lots of unique parts - good compliment to any City set.

UNIQUE PARTS | Score: 9

Lots of unique pieces, construction yellow parts and grey drum parts, as well as the wheelbarrow.

PLAYABILITY/BUILD EXPERIENCE | Score: 7

The build experience is somewhat challenging and lots of fun, though it is somewhat off-set by the slightly limited play experience.  While the cool rotating drum and expelled "concrete" pieces are very cool, it just seems like a limited activity.

VALUE FOR MONEY | Score: 8

Good buy, even at MSRP.

THEME POPULARITY | Score: 8

The Construction theme is very solid, and every Construction collection must include a cement truck!

EXCLUSIVITY | Score: 6

Typical

PACKAGING | Score: 6

Typical

GROWTH POTENTIAL | Score: 7

A nice, playable and unique vehicle like this will likely always have a place somewhere in any Lego collection.

DISPLAY QUALITY | Score: 9

This set is perhaps best as a display, as the design execution is top-notch.

CONCLUSION & FINAL ANALYSIS | Score: 8

Every Lego collection should have this well-designed, playable vehicles.  A must for Construction collections, but also good with Modular Buildings.
