FIRST IMPRESSION | Score: 7

Small set but looks like 4 minifigures for £8, bargin!

UNIQUE PARTS | Score: 6

Nothing unique that I can see, however the brick bricks always look great. The toilet is a clever way of using those parts, would be good for most Lego bathrooms. The digger has an unusual cage piece which can move on a hinge.

PLAYABILITY/BUILD EXPERIENCE | Score: 7

Very quick, Josh my son (aged 7) built this in under 15 mins. He also make a stop motion, speed build videohttp://youtu.be/bwqOn-zkiqc if you would like to check this. He is very happy with this set.

VALUE FOR MONEY | Score: 7

4 minifigs for £8 is great without the other pieces so great value. The drilling man has a cool face and neat hat with ear protection. The woman builder has hair within the hat. All have front and back torso printing

THEME POPULARITY | Score: 7

City sets are always popular, the contruction theme I am sure does well. 

EXCLUSIVITY | Score: 4

No exclusivity

PACKAGING | Score: 6

The box gives a clear view of all the parts and minifigs in the set. The instructions are easy to follow and my son 7 built this very easily. It also shows the playability features of the set.

GROWTH POTENTIAL | Score: 5

Standard, no increase, nothing special in parts. 

DISPLAY QUALITY | Score: 6

Good in a city environment to display while something is being built or demolished. 

CONCLUSION & FINAL ANALYSIS | Score: 7

Starter sets are tempting to buy before purchasing the remaining of the themed sets. I like the construction theme as it lends well to the nature that is LEGO, building. And I appreciate that those city builders love putting these around their city. Great little set, a few more pieces and minifigs than a polybag and good value.

Great set, will we buy more? Most likely we will, we have been honest with the ratings given the size of the set. The minifigs are the stand out part in this set in our opinion.
