Doc Ock Truck Heist is one of the Lego Super Heroes sets released in March 2014. It retails for $19.99 and is available on Amazon. Below is a brief video review and my remarks regarding the set.
- The exploding safes is an interesting play feature
- The design for the armored truck is decent and includes a unique green train window
- Besides Doc Ock, the other minifigures are not unique to the set
- Spider Man’s web catapult does not work
This set has the potential for higher marks from me, but the lack of more than one unique minifig and the default suboptimal design of the play features are setbacks. In order for the exploding safes to eject from the truck, you’ll have to switch to frictionless technic pins as I’ve shown in the video. There is unfortunately no fix for the web catapult, so it should just be regarded as decoration. Otherwise, I like the design of the truck despite an overall average selection of parts. Judging from trends on other older Super Heroes sets, I expect Amazon will have discount the set by about 25% after several months when fall is here.
