After Christmas this year, Target discounted a number of Lego sets. This Cargo Truck, Lego 60020 caught my eye. It comes with two mini figures, one is the woman truck driver and the other is the forklift driver. The forklift driver has ear muffs for protection, presumably from the loud noises at the cargo dock.
The cargo truck is an easy build and it comes in three parts, the chassis, the cab, and the cargo box. The cargo box and cab can be easily detached from the chassis. If you had spare Lego pieces, you could build a different cargo bed and swap it for the cargo box. The cargo box opens up on the side to provide easy access to the inside. You could mount the box so that it can open either from the right side or left side. It's got room for two pallets. This set has a pallet for an engine block and another for what look to be gas tanks. Other accessories include a little hand truck and coffee mug.
The cab has opening doors and you could probably squeeze two mini figures into it if you tried. It's got two black side mirrors and a wind deflector on the roof. Two large exhaust pipes are directly behind the cab.
The orange forklift that comes with the set is a bit over sized in my opinion. But it does come with a movable forklift for lifting those heavy pallets. The forklift comes with a steering wheel and two levers. The top opens up so you can place the driver mini figure in easily.
