I purchased this for my 12-year-old grandson for Christmas. He had a few cars, so the trucks looked like a fun addition. I was right! The addition of a truck unlocked some new er,...things inside the game taht pleased him. the truck is kind of a bully, in that it will knock cars off the track in something called 'rage mode'. He's pleased. Target's price and shipping was, as usual, stellar, so I'm pleased as well. I will be back to purchase other trucks in this line.
If you have the Anki Overdrive set you have to get one of the Supertrucks! They add a new dimension to all the open play racing. Plus a new game mode only playable with a Supertruck. I don't want to give away any of the surprises, but the interaction between the Supercars and Supertrucks is awesome!
