Top five LEGO monster trucks

The LEGO Group loves monster trucks and with many sets based on the off-road vehicles, Brick Fanatics finds the best of the lot.

Monster trucks seem to be the LEGO Group’s new favourite vehicle , with a fair few sets over the last few years dedicated to the oversized trucks. Here are the top five LEGO monster trucks.

5 – 76174 Spider-Man’s Monster Truck vs. Mysterio

76174 Spider Mans Monster Truck Vs. Mysterio 5

Starting the list is a new 2021 Marvel set, which contains a monster truck with superhero branding. 76174 Spider-Man’s Monster Truck vs. Mysterio might have interesting figures that will draw fan’s collective gaze, but the build itself offers a decent monster truck with Spider-Man detailing, not to mention the suspension. This set is available now.

4 – 31104 Monster Burger Truck

We’ve already spoken at length about the brilliance of this set in our review but 31104 Monster Burger Truck is simply too unique to not include. With 499 pieces, this model presents a fully functioning food truck, with an enormous set of wheels, that, of course, includes a folding stairway. Released in 2020 and available now, it truly crushes its spot in the list.

3 – 42005 Monster Truck

42005 Technic Monster Truck

With a not exactly inspired set name, 42005 Monster Truck was one of the first LEGO Technic monster truck, featuring spring-loaded suspension and the ability to turn its wheels. This model released in 2013 with 329 pieces, the striking red paint job with flame decals makes for an eye-catching design in any demolition derby.

2 – 6675 Road & Trail 4 x 4

6675 Road Trail 4 X 4

While not called a monster truck by name, this set is no doubt one by nature and was one of the first sets recognisable as a monster truck to be released. 6675 Road & Trail 4 x 4 released in 1988 and features an exhaust pipe playfully jutting out of the main build. The yellow tubes give off the idea of suspension, a technique that is still used to this day.

1 – 42118 Monster Jam Grave Digger
