Yeesh, this one looks very juniorized.

Well, then again, this IS from the era where LEGO was exclusively for young children...

Those old sets have a certain vintage charm to them though, don't they?

I like that a minifigure can fit in the cockpit...

I like that trans-clear 2x2x2 slope. It works great for the cloaks of wraiths and ghosts.

This is from the first ever year of Minfigure Town (full minfigures with moving arms/legs) calling it juniorized is silly.

This was clearly inspired by the 612 Tipper Truck set (1974), even the 622 number is very close.

It was very common to see vehicles that couldn't fit a minifgure before that as real minifgures didn't even exist in 1977, just those armless ones.

Even many of the other Town 1978 sets can fit no figure.

1997-2000 had juniorized vehicles that were a lot worse, even if they could fit a figure, because it actually was a massive downgrade from the 80s and 90s sets before that.

Oh come on guys, can't you see the figure sits on the right front corner in front of the exhaust pipe?

Yeah lol I was talking about the "juniorized" comment - not the cockpit joke, that one was obvious.
