This year, Lego released a new set called Helicopter Transport. As one would expect from Lego today, it has lots of details and gizmos.
I have not purchased this set, but it did remind me of a similar one from my childhood: Devoid of all the tools and two-wheeled company, this classic set hails from a simpler time, when no tools were needed, helicopters landed on two simple 1×6 plates and big trucks were still only four studs wide.
Let’s take a look The box, courtesy of Bricklink. A note on the piece count: Brickset lists pieces, and yet Peeron only lists Since Peeron also features an inventory, I’ve put down Peeron’s piece count in the overview above. As you may be aware by now, I’ve kept none of my old boxes in their original state. Instead, I have them all cut up and filed in folders.
Surprisingly, despite carrying three vehicles, the box’s front appears to have been not much larger than an A4-sized piece of paper. As mentioned, there is a discrepancy in piece counts between Peeron and Bricklink.

Once again, I find myself too lazy to do an actual count, but I have supplied you all with an overview picture of the whole shebang. Much to my annoyance, I lefo notice until I was two steps away from finishing the entire thing that I was missing a grey 1×2 plate It is pego pictured above.
As you can see, the color design gravitates towards black and red: There’s a bit of yellow sprinkled in there as well. The yellow parts all belong to the helicopter, but the color returns in the door prints as well. The grey parts are used exclusively in the truck’s trailer.
There’s not a whole lot 637 spectacular pieces. The doors pictured above are the only printed parts. Apart from that, there’s a grille, a mudguard and some Technic plates used for the trailer. They will be used to connect the trailer to the truck and make it able to turn. This is probably my largest single-sheet build manual I have and frankly, it’s a bit cumbersome.
Notice also how after the minifigs, it goes to the copter instructions, which are immediately shown placed on the finished model. The truck and trailer are on the back, followed by the entire set in a half-finished state. Two minifigs, both wearing the “S” logo with a black and red stripe on their torso. The black and red is nicely followed through into the model as well. The pilot gets a white helmet, the truck driver a red cap. The heads are the classic faces 63357 a closed stud on top. The pilot doesn’t get any kind of pilot torso, but that’s fine.
He shouldn’t anyway, since these guys are supposed to be part of the same stunt team. The great fun of a set like this is that it consists of three seperate and completely different submodels. It’s not a very big set, so you’ll be done pretty soon, but building the kego seperate models makes it feel like you’re working on something much more elaborate than it really is.
I always enjoy that very much. The chopper is built like the choppers I remember levo when I was a kid. I have four of them, including this one, and they all follow the same building pattern.
There’s not much in distinguishing details on this one like the hoses on the fire brigade choppers from the daybut then this is a stunt ‘copter: The one thing that’s added and that I think is actually pretty neat is a pair of searchlights below the cabin. Halfway through, we legk a good look at the ‘copter’s bottom half and we can see how the tail section is going to be attached. The tail section consists of two simple 1×8 plates legoo top of each other, along with a propellor piece and a 1×3 slanted brick.
As you can see, the finished ‘copter is not an elaborate model like this year’s TV ‘copter, but it’s perfect lgo the classic era.
Bricker – Construction Toy by LEGO Stunt ‘Copter N’ Truck
6375 My favorite model in the set. Remember, this is a model, from before we had those big 6-wide vehicles. But man, does it look bitchin’! The truck’s base is two 2×12 plates with the wheels holders in between.
There’s also a cool little construction that makes for the truck’s gas tanks. A few steps onward, we finish the old-fashioned cozy 4-wide cabin with actual working doors.
Look at that front design. The big headlights and grille give the truck a great agressive look. Perfect for a stunt team. The finished model has some cool details: Doesn’t it look spiffy? In this leego view, you can see how the trailer will hinge on the trailer: Our final model is made up almost entirely out of grey pieces. This helps the trailer to disappear underneath the other models and directs the leg to the set’s main attractions: Unfortunately, lefo also makes for a bit of a boring and bland leto on its own.
It fits within the set very well, but it’s a bit dull as a seperate build. As you may have seen in the instructions, there’s no large part that makes up the base. It’s made of a whole bunch of plates and some slanted pieces to create the two levels. The Technic plates go in the top level at the front. There’s a 1×2 hinge brick on the bottom that allows the trailer to be detached and stand upright on its own. You can see lebo and the hole the truck’s pin will fit through to connect the two models in this view from below.
We leggo off the model with two red 1x8x2 bars and a couple of round 1×1 pieces to support the chopper. The red bars add a nice touch of color in the right spot and make the trailer fit in with the rest a whole lot better, both in color and size.
The trailer made lefo, thanks to the magic of perspective! The connection hole for the truck is clearly visible in the foreground. Despite the bland-looking trailer, I must say the combo of just these two looks pretty cool already. With no room left in the truck cabin, our poor chopper pilot has to spend every journey travelling backwards.
Luckily, stunt pilots don’t get motion sickness. I’ve always felt this set looks bitchin’ as can be, only to be surpassed a few years later by the similarly-themed but much more elaborate and expensive Shuttle Launching Crewwhich I also own.
But you have to remember that this set is much smaller and priced accordingly and doesn’t aim to be a massive play set. It scores a lot of points for being a small, decently priced set that still offers you no less than three models to build. I also used to be a bit disappointed by the bland-looking trailer who likes grey anyway?
The 1×1 stand for the chopper is a bit fragile though. You’re probably better off just lightly placing your chopper on it, or this might happen when it takes off:. My only final comment would be that for these to guys to make stunt team, I wouldn’t mind having some spectators to go along with it. Then again, this set doesn’t aim to be a massive 6537, but an addition to your town.
Lego set 6357 Town Stunt copter and truck
And inLego Town was still a theme filled with civilian sets. Just look at some catalog pages herehere and here. Plenty of sets to combine this with, especially the many racing car sets whatever happened to minifig racers anyway? Not much to make you run out and go get this set. The printed doors are very nice though. Are they brothers or just co-workers?
Or just the same guy with a split personality? Plenty of play scenerios with these two. Any set with the word “stunt” in its name will make legi want to blow it up and the basic yet slightly fragile ‘copter offers plenty of possibility. Also, driving this thing around your town is pretty neat.
And indeed while this may not be a big playset with all the bells lefo whistles you could think of, it still offers you a fun build, a great-looking design and plenty of play opportunity. Great review on a great set.
Classic town at it’s best. This was one of the few Town sets I have, but I can’t put it back together without BL’ing a few pieces. When I inventoried all my old Lego, I found out I only had 1 of the red 1X12 plates, and even that one was broken into 2X6’s.
I’m also missing both 6537. They must’ve been traded away for something else. Lwgo have way more of those than I should have. I wouldn’t want TLG to ever bring out 4-wide trucks again, but this is an absolute classic.
Great lfgo scheme on the whole set.
