Good Sets for Parts 8

It's been a while since I've done one of these.  Let's give it a shot.  I've already covered the movie sets elsewhere, and the Mixels should be obvious. Let's take a moment to look at some of the other new sets.

42020 Twin-Rotor Helicopter.  145 parts for $12.99.  As most people can figure out, I'm a big fan of Technic parts.

10667 Juniors Construction.  160 parts for $14.99.  Plenty of fiddly bits and plenty of color.  The only minuses are the mono-body vehicle piece and the minifig.

70161 Tremor Track Infiltration.  241 parts for $19.99.  I've always liked the Agents line.  This set is a tad monochromatic, but Tan and Dark tan can be interesting colors to work with.

70141 Vardy's Ice Vulture Glider.  217 parts for $19.99.  This set is similar in color to the one above.  It does have Translucent Light Blue pieces to make things interesting though.

60056 Tow Truck.  227 parts for $19.99.  I feel like I get to recommend City sets so rarely lately, it's almost worth a celebration every time I do.  This set has plenty of parts in Blue, White, Red, and Light Bley.

70130 Sparratus’ Spider Stalker.  292 parts for $24.99.  Lots of Technic bits in this one along with useful system pieces.

10673 Race Car Rally.  350 parts for $29.99.  Plenty of basic bricks for terrain and a healthy amount of the fiddly stuff we love.

21020 Trevi Fountain.  731 parts for $49.99.  $0.07 per piece, and while most of the set is standard bricks there are plenty of clip plates, bar plates, jumpers, skeleton arms, and SNOT bricks to make this worth it.
