LEGO Technic - Mack Anthem - 42078 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Happy I am extremely happy with how this build turned out! I love all the moving parts in both the truck and trailer. Leave yourself a lot of time and room for this build! I took up the entire dining room table for a week.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressive truck I spent the 20-30 minutes I have to myself at the end of the day over 3 weeks working on this truck - sometimes more as the build of the cab section was very addictive - excellent details in the engine and interior even including a bunk in the sleeper - the mechanism is wonderful allowing both lifting and dropping the container over the side of the trailer - stabilizers keep the trailer from tipping - as they should - be careful with the gearing matching and you will have a fun build - if not a frustrating take apart and re-do! One small touch would be great - Cargo in the container! Perhaps some pallets of boxes etc!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the steering wheel Everyone who has seen this has taken it off the shelf and played with it, it looks outstanding! The hardest part of the build is the fourth set of bags, I spent about four and a half hours on it. My favorite part of this is thae way the steering wheel tilts and turns as the steering on the rear of the truck is turned. The hood tilts up showing the engine which is not the usual V engine, it is a nice look. My only real complaints are that the antennae on the doors come off easily as does the front of the truck. I can't let most people play with it as they are not going to be careful with it. Also the cranes have a problem lifting the cargo container, maybe I am not doing it right, but the cargo box with the chains almost tips the truck over when taking the container off of the truck. As stated before it looks amazing, the features are cool. The steering and the engine are a welcome change. Whoever designed this it looks great and the steering is cool to play with. The engine is nice to look at. The outriggers and winches are not ideal for me. All in all, I love this for display.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As good as it looks! When I first saw this set, it went straight onto the 'must get' list. I was quite surprised at the amount of small parts, but this only added to the challenge, and delight at the end of the build. The mechanical concepts throughout the model are very faithfully replicated, and it is a fun machine to operate and look at. Other reviews have discussed the issues of gearing and some missing/incorrect parts, but for prospective Mack builders, jump in and grab it. The Athem is well worth the time and effort, thank you Lego, please carry on with these!
