Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is very cool For you guys who are thinking about buying the trash chomper... You should! Why? It has some of the coolest minifigs, and features! My favorite feature is when you turn the front gear and it chomps!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THIS IS THE BEST SET EVER!!! I AM BLOWN AWAY BY HOW AMAZING THIS SET IS!!!! I had been wanting it for SOOO long. I had trouble deciding between the Ice Cream Machine, Castle Cavalry, or the Flying Flusher. Not to be mean, but after I looked at all the PROS and CONS I decided on the Trash Chomper and man, am I sure glad I did. I am in LOVE with the fact that it can rebuild. I only have one complaint about this set: the mouth. It looks great when it opens and closes, but the fact that it relies on friction isn't that great. I read this review this other person made and said they fixed the problem, so I did what he said, and now I am very happy. I would give this set a rate of 500000000000/10. I would tell anyone thinking about buying this set to buy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hilarious Garbage Truck This set is hilarious to look at. It is a man eating garbage truck, and even the jaws can be controlled. Inside there is even a cockpit to keep the driver, but the other garbage man has to hold onto the smoke pipe to ride. Not only that, it is a 2 in 1 so you can make an actual garbage truck out of it. The regular garbage truck has a cool mechanism that allows the back to be opened and you can put studs in there! It is quite difficult to get them out though. The micro-manager is cool as well, it is unique because of its hover pads on the bottom (Does not actually hover) and the open missile compartments. But I rebuilt it and made it into a race car! Overall this set is a lot of fun to play with and a cool set to put on a shelf for collectors. Again, a must-have for Lego movie fans!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like Jaws and a Garbage truck had a baby. this is an awesome set! the details are impressive and the build is very interesting. the chomper truck is nice and sturdy but the trash cans can fall off easy... there is also a HUGE amount of classic green parts as well as some nice orange parts. overall a great value if your looking at collecting such colors :) I have not built the Alternate "regular truck" model yet... mostly because the chomper truck was so cool. the minifigures are nice, and having a chef is neat! but I feel he could have used a second face. the micro manager is cool as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Set These 2 in 1 sets are great I always love to build and is great to rip one of these apart and choose one of the 2 builds. As for the Trash Chompper A+++ to u lego hope I see more of these sets in the future :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from CRUNCH! Expect this to be smaller than you thought. :P Obviously the predominant feature is the Chomper's chomping "mouth". Sadly, the opening and closing of the mouth depends on the friction between a peg and hub, so it doesn't always work when you turn the knob, and I expect this feature will worsen over time. :( The Chomper looks like a trash truck that was taken apart and thrown back together, but not like a bunch of LEGO bricks thrown together. Nicely done. The recycling truck looks quite beautiful (ha, the irony). I would love to put it in a big LEGO city. The back opens well and has just enough space to dump your bones and carrot stalks into - WAIT A MINUTE! This is supposed to be a RECYCLING truck... why are they cleaning up food scraps? But still...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Slightly Disappointed! I was super excited about getting this set but sadly it didn't live up to my expectations. One issue I'm hoping to get resolved through LEGO customer care. Oddly enough I haven't read anyone else having this problem so I'm assuming one of the pieces is slightly warped. When building this as an actual trash truck and putting the top on, there's a substantial gap on one side. I tried moving the pieces around but still end up with a gap. Just on the other side. The second issue is the back portion that holds on the mechanism that opens and closes falls off frequently. I think with a little modifying this could be rectified but honestly I'd hope that would have been down before being finalized and packaged into a complete kit. The minifigures are great and the coloration used on the trash truck guy's uniforms was a nice change. I wish the chef came with a head with two faces but can't complain. The micro manager was a nice build and possibly my favorite of those I've built so far. Overall a decent build but if I can't get the roof rectified it won't be a trash truck but instead use the pieces for other builds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun vehicle builds This is our third 2-1 Lego Movie build, and we enjoyed putting this model together. This makes a good gift, or an excellent addition to a city layout. The minifigures are good. As with the other 2 in 1's, you get three: two with a profession associated with the vehicle, and a third citizen who is mainly being harassed by the robotic micromanager. In this case, you get two trash collectors and one chef. The chef has only one facial expression (scared). Of the three micromanagers we have collected so far, this one is the favorite. It balances well on tripod feed, has four flick fire missiles, and it can open its flaps on two sides. This one is certainly very maneuverable and posable. The trash chomper is very creative, as it appears to be a machine with teeth capable of gobbling up the micromanager. There are several stickers associated with a recycling vehicle. The flying vehicle build seems more challenging than the regular recycling truck, although both versions are fun to try. The recycling truck fits in our growing city. The strength of the set is that it offers two different ways of using your pieces to build something. The Lego Movie makes a point out of showing the audience that creativity can allow for multiple variations of objects to be made out of a common parts assortment. This could certainly help encourage children to be creative and try new things. The weakness of the set is that it did not get much screen time in the movie. Kids seem to readily identify sets such as Cloud Cuckoo Palace or Lord Business' Lair as the more iconic scenes. The vehicle only shows up the movie for mere seconds, which kind of inhibits its exposure. Nonetheless, it is an excellent choice for a set, and I think both kids and adults alike could enjoy assembling this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A mixed bag My nephew bought this kit after seeing the Lego Movie, but I ended up building most of it for him, as he was busy playing with the Micro Manager. :) I built the Trash Chomper initially, which was a fun model to build. It went together very well, although the mechanism for the chomping jaws could cause problems for younger builders. It was a relatively solid model which stood up to being played with quite well. We then decided to take it apart and re-build it in its rubbish truck form, which again went together easily. However the rubbish truck did seem far more fragile than the trash chomper model. I seemed to be constantly repairing the back end! Also, it doesn't seem to mention in the instructions that you will have spare parts left over depending which model you build, when putting the rubbish truck together I spent ages looking for two black 3x2 plates only to find them in the box with a few other spares from the kit. Overall though the rubbish truck and the trash chomper both look very good, as do the figures (two bin men and a chef) and the micro manager. My nephew certainly had fun playing with them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fun but has quirks Well I have purchased several sets from the Lego movie so far. I had higher hopes for the trash chomper although my son enjoys it. I am mildly disappointed, as others have said, in the chomper jaw mechanism. It operates roughly, unevenly and is a friction design. The cool factor is up there and the fact that you can build two designs from one set is always a plus. That will keep my son interested for sure. But I am not so excited about the "chomper" version; I anticipate we will rebuild into the trash truck and keep it in that configuration. Overall still a neat Lego movie set, but I did have better expectations on this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trash Chomper! I really like this set and I think it cool that we get another trash truck since we got one from Lego City set 4432 but that one was like an actual trash truck this truck you could make as a recycle truck I also like the other build which the trash chomper itself it is alittle challening to build than the trash truck build but still very cool how you can also make the mouth move like for example trash, a minifigure or a micromanger.Also the micromanger in this set is very cool and I like how it has two flaps for missiles underneath to fire which are very cool.This is a good set and if you don't have this set I would get it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very fun set to build I built this one my self over the weekend and had a lot of fun. Even if you only build the trash truck version it's much more fun then the city version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Two for the price of one. I'm verymuch enjoying The LEGO Movie sets with two sets of build instructions. One set for a regular City style build, and a second for a fantasy rebuild. Plenty of good pieces and plenty of green in this set. Also a color of minifig torso printed with reflective work stripes that I haven't seen before. I'm mildly disappointed that the mechanism to open and close the jaws of the chomper vehicle uses friction pegs rather than axles, so it does slip and behave oddly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trash chomper review I had been wanting to get a garbage truck for a while, and was happy to see a new one was coming out for the new LEGO movie. I was quite surprised when I stumbled upon 2 boxes left at a store before Christmas. I built the black robot first so I could save the truck for last. The truck is full of LOTS of green parts and some other unique pieces. I like how the back trash door swings up though it was a bit of a challenge building the door. The fact that you can build 2 models out of all of the pieces makes me feel like I am getting my money's worth, though one model has to be taken apart to build the other. Not a big fan of the black robot itself. I have not built the alternate model yet. I might pick up another after the holidays so I can have both models.
