A Service Truck? 2015 City Preview

Portaloo

One of our “volunteer” Elves has just returned from his mission over the wall into LEGO’s headquarters. He got a bit lost on his way to the Technic area that we really care about and stumbled into the “City” products. Fortunately he evaded the guard dogs and returned home carrying two new 2015 sets.

First up is the 60073 “Service Truck”. LEGO seems to be having trouble naming its products at the moment. We all know that the 42024 “Container Truck” is actually a skip lorry and surely 60073 should be the Portaloo? Perhaps LEGO couldn’t get a licence agreement or maybe they thought that mums and dads wouldn’t want to buy the set for their kids? But we all love a bit of toilet humour and LEGO’s photographers seem to be no exception, with a minifig in the cabin caught doing his business, on the box top.

The errant Elf also brought this rather lovely 60083 “Snowplow Truck”. Whilst it might not have the functionality of the 8110 Unimog, it certainly looks the part, with its orange snowplough blade and grit hopper. Both new sets will reach stores in early 2015.

      We’re excited about 60083 too. Those orange curved parts look new to us. Unfortunately the Elves are mainly excited about the toilet on 60073. There’s no accounting for taste.

  3. […] Second is Tommaso Garosi’s Unimog. Christmas is coming (there have been decorations in the shops for weeks now) and Tommaso’s crew are busy loading trees onto their truck. Underneath this classic 4×4 are prop-shafts and difs, which you can see by clicking this link to MOCpages. You can compare this with LEGO’s new, official model by clicking this link to our mini 2015 City preview. […]
