After months of no lego life, finally I am able to build lego again! And it is good that Toy Story 7599 Garbage Truck Getaway is not disappointing!

One of the negative thing I felt about the Toy Story sets are the wierd vehicles that comes with the cool minifigs, I am not saying that they are bad, may be they are just not my cup of tea, but in 7599, you get a very realistic garbage truck which is nicely designed, many mentioned about this truck's City theme feel, I don't think I agree completely, coz City Theme may not necessarily produce a garbage truck as sophisticated as this one!

The minifigs are nice, when I saw the packaging of the minifigs at first glance, I wanted to applause Lego for isolating the minifigs, but later I found out that it was partly just an illusion, Buzz and Twitch's body and feet were still in another bag. However, overall these are good minifigs, and we have Jessie, who is probably the tallest minifigs in Lego.

Actually for the Toy Story line, Buzz is the only character that I really wants to collect, this seems to be good set to get the "dirty feet" version.

The truck can work mechanically, and that's an ingenious design, you can turn the knobs to move the arms and actually dump things into the container (the cover will open automatically), except for big "items" like Lotso that may get stuck!

The container is quite spacious, it can accomodate a standing Jessie and the blue trash bin!

The printed license plate is a big plus, I am surprise that there are people who prefer stickers.


My workload is still very tough, ironically I am able to play lego again not because of better work-life balance, I got time because of a very simple reason: I am on sick leave today.

Wonder when can I build a lego set again....
