The LEGO Creator Pickup Truck Set 10290 is a beautiful model that evokes the nostalgia of the American countryside in the 1950s. There are sure to be collectors that remember riding around in one of these in their youth, or perhaps still have an old one somewhere on their property. The vintage pickup is a classic vehicle that was always reliable. Here, builders can recreate the design in gorgeous dark red bricks and add on all the appropriate features, such as the grille, headlights, and rugged wheels for the dirt tracks.
This is one of the best LEGO sets for adults that want a more nostalgic vehicle with fun extras.
There is a lot going on with this truck that makes this 18+ build even more interesting for car enthusiasts. The truck has all the classic features of a model from this era. This includes the drop-down tailgate on the back, which you can set up as needed depending on the scenario taking place. The area in the back of the truck is spacious enough for any items included with the set – or others from other sets that you may feel are suitable for the scene. The removable wooden rails on the sides make it even easier to load things up securely.
What makes this set even more adorable and on-point for this time period is the range of buildable extras that you can set up in the back of the truck. Many of the pieces relate to roadside stalls and farmers markets where the owners of the truck can sell their goods to those travelling outside of LEGO City for the day. There is a little bushel of tomatoes, another of carrots, a box of pumpkins, and a big pail of milk. You can also use the little wheelbarrow to transport items to and from the truck, and decorate the truck with a festive wreath.
This Creator LEGO set is a joy and perfect for escapism.
This vehicle may not have the same level of complexity as something in the Technic range. However, that doesn’t mean that this will be an easy task. This more than 1000 piece LEGO set is rated 18+ and needs care and love. Builders will be left with an attractive model that will be the envy of others because of that nostalgic design and the greater story around the features. This LEGO Creator Pickup Truck Set 10290 is a car that builders of ages are going to want to play with.
