Pros: Size, it's huge if you are used to system scale sets.
Cons: Nothing unless you were expecting something to scale with other sets.
Comments: The amount of detail on the truck is amazing and the mechanism for dumping the container is simple but realistic and works very well. The minifigs have long disappeared into my general population but the truck still holds a spot on the shelf. It's a great looking set.

Pros: Appearance, functions, and playability are all great
Cons: Sick of stic-- wait, this set only has printed parts! Nevermind. . .
Comments: This is a great set, even for $50. The build doesn't have even a hint of monotony, 3/4 figs are exclusive, the finished model looks awesome, play features are all excellent. The way the liftarms automatically open the top hatch is especially nifty. Plus, it makes a great parts pack full of hinges, tiles, and all that dark green.
