Hey!! Here’s the another version!!

Wondered when that would show up!

For those of you who don’t know, there were multiple versions of this set. We got one of the other versions as a RSotD not too long ago. This is the next step of the saga

There are actually 13 variants of this set released in 2003 - 4 of which have now appeared as RSoTD

Well, it's not another Clikit?

I've always wondered why LEGO treated all these as different sets, with their own unique set numbers, and packaging, while the only real different was a sticker sheet contained within. Kinda wasteful financially, as I'm sure all of them together did not sell as well as most commercial sets.

The design of this build style was improved in 1994. It looked sleeker with couple of new pieces. It's interesting to see that Lego chose to go with an older design almost a decade later.

I would love to have this one. It's when they still did the airplanes in the same style as the Legoland Airport I had when I was a kid.

Oh no, I really want to be able to buy a set on a plane! LEGO, please, dew it!

Wait, is that Timmy? Looks like he time-travelled a few years forward from the theme's years!

@Cody6268: I think Lego sold all these sets to each airline so they made the profit they expected. It was up to the airlines to sell them to passengers. I know that's the same as regular retail but I am guessing the airlines didn't have to move stock as quickly as stores do so there would be no returning or discounting of unsold stock.

The last hurrah of the "4-wide" airliner design, before the bigger designs came out.

I have the El Al version of this set, which I got on a flight to Israel in 2004. Despite being in my dark ages, I *had* to have this set.

A classic Town 4-wide airplane, I can't help but think that the light bluish grey and dark bluish grey fuselage is a mismatch with the liveries of many of these airlines. In the late 2000s, debates between AFOLs occurred over whether the old, angular, 4-wide design built out of slopes and plates was better than the fused, rounded design first observed in 7893, but the secondary market on Bricklink and Ebay has decisively spoken: the rounded airliners carry a hefty premium, with sealed 7893s improving in value over 400% since 2006.

With regards to 4032, we can observe that the sticker-based livery seemingly carries on the awful 90s Lego trend of STAMPs- Stickers Across Multiple Parts. Two decades of play will do a number on any sticker, but when it's spread across two parts, it's almost guaranteed to be destroyed.

The only thing worthwhile about this is the glory of Timmy.

While I think 6 wide cars are the best (since Speed Champions), I have to say that 4 wide planes will probably never overtaken. They're just the best.

@cody6268: if I recall correctly these were all the same set with a different sticker sheet packaged on the outside of the box, fan databases treat each set with different stickers as a seperate set for ease of cataloguing.

As for the set , I like it as a last hurrah for the 4-wide passenger plane; I really dig the angled wings and the fancy dark blue pilot's uniform

Still looks like a great 4-wide design now.

Nowadays with the more "rounded" wedge pieces being used more and more, it just doesn't look the same.

2006 & 2011 still had some promotional 4-wide airplanes.

But the actual City themed planes were all 6 wide with various prefab cockpit, wings, fuselage and tail parts.

Of course nowadays those large parts are somewhat needed to get the larger aircraft scale/size like the 2006, 2010, 2016 passenger planes, but those parts are very specialized, while those older airplanes could be transformed into other things easier.

Those large airplanes, while smooth and far less studs, it takes away the feeling of LEGO and more of a generic toy airplane, meanwhile this set really still is LEGO in all ways, angles, studs, versatile design.
