This is my forth (old-school) technic set review!
Since blakbird pointed out that all my technic reviews are red, I chose a yellow dune blaster for today!
just kidding. this set is red as it should be! (Don't worry my next reviews will be yellow and black... uhhh forshadowing... ;-) )
I will start with some facts!
277 elements and released in 1994
#1: the box:
#2: the parts:
#3: building instructions and catalogues:
Wow! No folds, no wear marks - simply: *wub*
"Was lesen coole Kids?" - "KLICK! Das super Magazin fuer coole Kids!" (How obvious...)
I really love the way the 1x8 Technic Bricks on the sides will be positioned later.
Fun fact: the engine contains no 2L-Technic Axle.
...and finished. A real quick build.
#5: spare parts:
...for the alternate model. The yellow Technic Handle should be from 8412. Maybe a bonus feature from the seller!
#6: random shots:
#7: final thoughts:
This is my second 8829 and I also noticed that the engine turns very hard.
The alternate model is really (sorry to all those of you who like it) crappy.
I mean- a nice idea, but not with this wheels! :-|
Anyway: a really beautiful Technic-set! *reminiscing* (this word exists, does it?)
thanks for viewing the pictures, I hope you enjoyed it!
Please comment if you want to!
