Hmm. Unfortunately it doesn't look like the model flexes in the middle. 🙁

 

It does, just that the 2nd half body shell seems to love to detach itself a lot... at least, on my model:

Needless to say, i'm tempted! 

 

 

Thanks. I'm more than tempted. I ordered it. I hope they release the loading bay as a single item. I'd like to have a few or them. Maybe I'll try to copy this one to make a multi truck loading bay.

don’t know why they just don’t release the misc bits from the two half’s of the loading docks! ahh the joy of marketing, get them to buy two sets even if they already have our loading dock and don’t need another! Ha ha ha ha ...

 

it is nice new sets!

Cool. I didn't know those were out there. I'll have to chase some down.

I like these loading docks. The size is perfect also.

Nothing new. There already are bits apart from the forklifts.

Fujimoto has a nice fancy one too, scored one of these on auction recently.  They also make fancy container toploaders:

As luck would have it, I hadn't completed my purchase. I should know better than to pull the trigger without hearing the input from you guys. ☺️

The price may math out well for folks looking for the full bundle.  It will be fun to see what else comes along in this series.

If you ordered today you can still cancel at HS.

Yep, I was able to do that before when I ordered the same item twice by mistake 😜 This time I went back to do that but realized that I hadn't completed the reservation. When I looked closer I noticed that HS was suggesting the individual items to me. 

 

I really don't need the trucks. I have a gizillion. And my depot is going to be a Sagawa depot to work with my Super Rail Cargo train. I also have lots of fork lifts. What I really want is the loading bay door to incorporate into my Sagawa depot. So I'll just get one by itself. If I can copy it I will. If not I'll get a bunch as parts for a kitbash.

Ah, yes. I have the Kato and the Fujimoto ones. The Fujimoto sets weren't easy to find. I think all of these probably need a bit of painting. Some day I'll get round to it!

The trucks are new arent they? I don’t remeber any Tomytec trucks with opening doors save the horse trucks (now that was an odd truck to model!) 

 

new small forklifts are nice they look to be the small kind that can even fit into the truck. Also featured in the new sawmill set

 

https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10683519

 

small forklifts are harder to come by, all the above ones are container forklifts. Aoshima did a little one but colored plastic and not great on the details. There are cast metal ones and a couple of euro ones as well for little ones and I’ve seen some on shapeways but pricy.

Yes, looking at the photos the new forklifts are smaller than the older Tomix models which I have here.

Hmm, we could use one or two of the smaller ones...

All the various forklifts could benefit from a little detail painting, especially the wheel hubs and some weathering.

I believe the trucks are new and not included in the earlier truck collections... besides, they come with the openable doors which is pretty interesting... 

 

I still ordered it, though I already don't have space for a truck terminal....  X_X

The Kato forklifts are pretty good and come with a decent amount of add on details, once you paint them all up they make some really nice models, Kato also does an excellent toplifter as well which is more akin to what you would fid in a typical JRF yard, the Fujimoto ones you would only find in the really big JRF yards or at a port facility.

Just what I need more bloody trucks, I already have at least 40 of various sizes, mind you I will be getting this set as there are some pretty good trucks in there and as you said they are all new models, not too mention all the other detail parts, I am going to have a Nippon Express depot next to my freight yard that I have already done the planning for and have the raw materials ready, just have to get rid of more LEGO from my back shed before the "Local Planning Authority" gives me her permission to start construction. I have 5 Nippon Express currently so these 2 extras will be a nice addition as well as the loading docks which I will be able put next to my Tomytec 137 Warehouse to make a decent sized depot.
