I bought this set because it had a lot of components that I needed to replicate our old car and my new truck, but it's also a solid set. The last vehicle set that I owned was from the '90s, when cars were 4x8 studs and had small wheels, so all of these new specialty vehicle pieces were an adjustment to me - not difficult, but just interesting in how everything goes together. Not only that, but the scale has increased - it's more realistic, but I wasn't prepared for exactly how beefy the final product would be! This truck is huge - as befits a tow truck, of course. The truck comes with good accessories - a fire extinguisher, safety pylons, a wrench, a mallet, and indicator lights. The wheels are nice big "monster truck" wheels that can be reversed for two rim options. The tow arm is relatively accurate, although I wish it had a bit more detail than just the plain Technic piece - nothing that can't be added aftermarket though. The arm has a lever that allows for height to be adjusted for lifting and lowering vehicles. One thing that would be nice would be a way to secure the towing claw - it's nice to have movement while towing, but on the way to and from the scene there's not really a good way to keep it from pivoting. Two workarounds are to use the lever to "pinch" the claw under the bottom of the truck, or you can just balance it on the rear bumper, but then it impacts the rear lights - neither of which are excellent fixes. It looks and functions great when in use as intended, however. The blue car that comes with is a nice blue sedan, with spaces under the front and rear bumpers for the tow truck to hook on (these might be universal for newer vehicles, I'm not sure). It's a nice little build with a few small issues - the doors don't actually function due to windshield placement, and the tires look more like off-road tires, although I don't know if there is a good option for the large wheel hub pieces. Still, a nice basic car to add to your city that could be customized to fit your needs. This set uses a lot of stickers. I'm a big fan of the old printed bricks, but I have a new appreciation for stickers - if you're planning on repurposing these components, it's nice to have the option to leave them blank. That being said, these stickers are nice and add some good character to the truck, especially the stamped metal for the tow truck's box. The minifigs are nothing to write home about, but they're solid-looking citizens. I do wish that the tow truck driver had some sort of high-vis vest or jacket on, but let's be honest - those are a dime a dozen in Lego City, so it's an easy fix, and it's nice to have a different torso with blue coveralls and some hex wrenches. The driver looks like a "Joe's Garage" type of fellow. The car owner has a nice green dress shirt/sweater combo. Nothing crazy, but they'll fit in well in any city setup. Overall, a nice solid build with some neat details. Lots of play value for the kids, and a great addition to an established city.

      You don't find many tow truck toys out there. It's always cops or semi trucks, dump trucks, exc.... I was super excited to find a tow truck Lego set as my fiancé is a tow truck driver and our boys love anything to do with towing.

      This Lego City Tow Truck was a very hard to find item. Seems like every kid on the planet wanted it. When I finally found and received in thru your online service, I could see why. It was an awesome LEGO item that had 2 vehicles instead of only 1!

          Yet again, LEGO City delivers another fine set! The tow truck works very well, encourages hours of entertainment, and does come with a vehicle that can actually be towed! The crane is stable, the design is very accurate, and the minifigures are great additions. Overall it's a great set.
