4340 Custom Pick up truck
« on: March 21, 2011, 04:37:17 »
Well I promised the kids a toy this weekend so we went to TRU. They all picked out Legos and I grabbed a 4340 souped up mini truck for $15


If you hear the sound of the bell which will tell you that Grigori has been killed, if it was your relations who have wrought my death, then no one in the family will remain alive. They will be killed by the Russian people. :prays:

I really liked the wheel design. It had wheel similar to a 21 inch custom but the nice touch was the red part. It  was added to simulate the front break disc. On custom souped up cars it is best to have this design.




 It has holes precisely drilled to help dissipate the heat. The heat is generated from hard braking when driving fast where one would use the breaks a lot.

The klicky has an odd shirt but a welcomed hat & jeans

Thanks for the review, Ras!  I love the pics with bikini girl.  :lol:

That shirt is a little different.... I think I would really like it if it didn't actually say pickup on it. That's pretty odd. But then playmobil does weird stuff like that a lot. Isn't there a little girl somewhere with a shirt that says :heart: boys?  :hmm:

In the end, we will conserve only what we love. We will love only what we understand. We will understand only what we are taught.

What fun pictures! Until now, I've never given this truck a second look. Now, I think I'll buy it. I just wish it were less pimped-out like a race truck, and more like a old pickup (better for a farm). After all, it's owned by such a cowboy-like klicky. Great review!

Nice set Ras!!
Can you show us how it can end up on your belt like a sort of box? That's what intrigues me about these sets and I hadn't had the chance to see them up close.
Thanx in advance!

Honestly, I didn't think it was this good. And best of all, it ain't expensive .
Cheers!
