The Lego Demolition Starter Set
Does this set have the first official Lego toilet?
Recently released by the Lego Group, these Starter sets are a great way to get started if you are just beginning with Lego bricks, or if you are an Adult who wants to tryout a different theme. The Demolition Starter Set comes with a bunch of stuff, and is a great value no matter how you look at it.
As soon as I heard about these Lego City Starter Sets, I knew that they would be a hit. For the price, there is nothing better. In the States, they are $10, and you get 4 minifigures with this set, plus a little scene of a leaky bathroom, a front loader, and a couple of extras, too.
There are multiple ways to play with this set, because each minifigure has a special job. There is a supervisor, a guy with a jackhammer, a female lego construction worker, and another guy who could be a worker, or an engineer.
The front Loader is a sturdy, simple build that has lots of moving parts. Of course the wheels spin, but the scoop in the front also goes up and down. Plus the roll bar cage around the place where the driver sits opens up, and there are even 2 control levers to operate the truck.
Perhaps the best part is the little bathroom with a Lego Toilet. I don’t know of any other sets that have a lego bathroom or toilet. This is a first for me. On-line I see lots of MOCs (My Own Creations) with bathrooms, but none like this. It is the perfect scene for this Demolition set.
Most other Demolition sets don’t come with a scene to destroy. They come with cranes, and bulldozers, and hammers, but nothing to take apart. I guess Lego thinks you can use those sets with another to take them apart. But this set is a starter set so it comes with everything you need.

Does the 60072 – LEGO Demolition Starter Set come with any stickers?
There are no stickers in this, or any of the starter sets. I like that.
What is the best piece(s) in 60072 – LEGO Demolition Starter Set?
For me, the best part of this set is not a single piece, but the little toilet build. It’s easy to do with all white parts, and it was fun to build.
Should I buy 60072 – LEGO Demolition Starter Set?
If you are looking for a great value with a lot of play-a-bility, then these starter sets are for you. You can choose from 5 different ones: This one, the demolition set, the swamp police, a fire starter set, a space starter set, and the deep sea scuba set. They are all the same price, and have about the same number of pieces.
If you ask me, I’d say that it is better to get all 5 of these sets for $50 than it is to buy a single $50 set. Where else could you get 23 minifigures for that price?

This starter set is part of two series: the city series, and the demolition series.
