It’s been a while but continuing on my reviews of the initial wave of LEGO Monkie Kid sets, I have Red Son’s Inferno Truck (80011). It has 1,111 pieces and retails for $119.99. The contents of the box include eight number bags, a bag of wheels, and the instructions along with the sticker sheet.
There are seven minifigures in this set, Monkie Kid, Mei, Lee, Red Son, Snort, Grunt, and Roar. Monkie Kid has the same work outfit as in the Pigsy’s Food Truck (80009). The front has food stains on it and the back has Pigsy’s logo. His double-sided head shows him with an angry look on one side and a scared look on the other. His accessory includes the usual Golden Staff.
Mei is in her casual outfit which shows her wearing a teal jacket featuring the White Dragon Horse on the back. She has a double-sided head with a smile on one side and an angry look on the other. Her accessory is a lime-green laptop.
Lee wears a neat teal and pink striped shirt with matching teal pants. I do like his head which shows him wearing glasses and having happy and scared expressions. His accessory is a printed menu piece.
Red Son has on a pretty detailed red and purple outfit which includes a red skirt piece. His double-sided head shows him with a smug look with glasses on one side and an evil smile on the other. The hair piece is red with a raised ponytail. His accessory is a little one-handed flamethrower.
Snort, Grunt, and Roar are all the the same minifigures from the Bull Clone army. There’s not too much going on with them that we haven’t seen before. One of them does have a bicycle with horns in front of the handlebars.
The first bag has the parts for a little tree area that connects next to the Speedy Panda. It uses some 1×2 bricks with pins so you can connect to either side of the store to give it variety.
The rest of the parts are for Monkie Kid’s tuk tuk. It’s simple looking but it does look pretty good. The top of the roof has a brick-built Pigsy sign complete with speakers. The back of it has a basket filled with food including one that uses white frog pieces.
Bag 2 is used to build the frame for the detachable race car. The back part, which looks like the front, uses some hinges to allow the front wheel to go in easily but that’s the extent of it as there’s a bar that goes through it later to secure it. The front of the cockpit uses Metalbeard’s beard piece along with a diamond.
Bag 3 is used to complete the race car. I do like how the two side panels are clipped in and are decorated with some flame stickers. The front part has a couple of large bumpers that will fit into the overall look of the Infernal Truck.
The next bag is dedicated to building the Speedy Panda store. There are a number of stickers for the marquee sign. One of the sticker shows it open for 24 hours and the other one is translated as the Panda Store. The right side of the convenience store has an out of order ATM. It is able to be blown out by turning the knob on the side of the store. Inside the store, there is a security camera that is connected to the knob. The counter has a number of drinks ready to be purchased. The panda on the top of the store looks really cute with its facial expression but again it is stickered.
Bag 5 is used for the frame of the main part of the Inferno Truck. Like with many other vehicles in the Monkie Kid line, the frame is made with mostly with Technic bricks. The back of it has has a pushing mechanism that has two uses, the detachment of the race car and the six stud rapid shooter.
Bag 6 adds more details to the top of the truck that makes it have a more construction feel to them. The front of it has a seat for the controls while the back has a large crane that has two operator seats in the back. The bed has some dynamite ready to be tossed.
Next up, we have the front cab part of the truck which is pretty standard looking. The hood ornament has a couple of horns for the Bull Clone army. It attaches to the rest of the truck using some Technic beams. Each of the wheels have two smaller ones that are attached together to make a large one.
For the last bag, we have some side attachments that goes on each side for more detailing with the back having a couple of cannons. Going underneath the truck is another weapon for the truck with the gatling gun. You can turn the knob on the back to shoot the studs and it works really well.
Overall the LEGO Monkie Kid Red Son’s Inferno Truck (80011) is a decent set but is a little over-priced for what you get, most likely due to the large wheel molds. I really do like the Speedy Panda convenience store along with the tuk tuk delivery cart. The Inferno Truck has some good play features that kids may enjoy including the detachable car and the cannons.
