Product Description

CHOKING HAZARD - Toy contains a small ball. Not for children under 3 yrs.

This chunky Desert Racer is built for rugged driving. There is a pull-back motor to power it forward as well as 4 massive tires to tackle any obstacle. This great little model also features a roll-cage to protect the driver and a row of lights across the top. There's also a cool winch to get it out of tough spots as well as an angled exhaust and, as a finishing touch, the bodywork has decals and a race number. For an even more action-packed play experience, combine your model with 42026 Black Champion Racer to create a Race Truck with 2 pull-back motors!

    Buy Technic Pull-Back Sets!

    By theawesomereviewerperson

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about LEGO Technic Desert Racer (42027):

    Very good set! The build was great. The angled pull-back motor is unique among these types of sets. Once built, the Desert Racer will go over ramps and is very tough for the most part. Very good playability. The winch is very cool, but if left dangling may become tangled in the front wheels. This can easily be remedied if the winch is attached to the Technic piece behind it. My one complaint is that the roll cage, which can be opened, seems kind of flimsy, only being attached to at the back. Personally, I have never had problems with the roll cage, its just my opinion. The steering wheel is a very cool-looking piece that I admire. Overall, if you are looking for a Technic set with very good playability, any pull-back racer is for You! On a side note, some other people I know have these sets as well. When you compare the performance of the different pull-back sets, you can see that the Black Champion Racer and the Record breaker are definitely built more for speed than off-road or jumping ability. The Record Breaker can't really clear a ramp at all but is super fast for example. The Quad Bike and Desert Racer (which I am reviewing here) are much better for off-road and ramp jumping. If you plan to buy a pull-back set, keep in mind what kind of performance you are wishing for.

      Toy was fun to put together and challenging enough for an older person. Truck also works as described which is cool for a Lego toy to move.

        He put it together very easily, and loves playing with it. His favorite part is that you pull it back and let it go, and it rides on its own across the floor.

          My husband put one together a while back and my son just had to have one too. He is 5 and was able to follow the instructions with minimal help from us. It is easy to assemble, directions are clear, fun to play with.
