Yes, I heard its hard to build and sure sounds like a pain to move it around since it breaks into pieces like that... :(

For me it would have to be the Mindstorms Ultimate Builders Set plotter model. Man, that was some complicated stuff! Technic is always hard to build, partly due to the fact that most of the parts are just rods, pins, and beams. But this one used some pretty advanced techniques and pneumatic, and you had to cut the tubes to the right length and everything.
The UCS X-Wing was hard too since it had no numbered bags and so many small bits and pieces.

Normally I'm fine with long builds but this was just frustrating.
Numbered bags anyone?
Oh my gosh i remember when i opened the box and saw all those bags and no numbering! I had to use my dining room table and half the time was so frustrated finding parts i just went and got rhem out of my collection in the other room.
So now that i remember the batcave, I'm going to have to vote on it. (UCS Batmobile was pretty hard too)

For me, the hardest set I've ever attempted was the Technic Darth Vader. At the time I had done exactly zero Technic builds, so you can see where I would have difficulty.
Hardest set I've ever completed? Probably... I remember the Insectoid falgship thing was pretty tough. I'll get bback to this once I've looked through all my old boxes.

I think 8868 is actually trickier despite having fewer pneumatics, since you have less space to route the tubes and need to set them up exactly right for them to reach the pistons and for the turntable to move smoothly.
8865 also deserves a mention because of how compressed its instructions are. Step 18 with its 144 pieces has been mentioned around here before.

As I don't have many sets, the choice iw quite easy. It's the huge 10030 UCS Star Destroyer for me. While not particularly difficult to build it was exhausting nonetheless because of the tremendously thick instruction booklet.

I found 8421 tricky because my copy was defective. The string it came with was slightly too thick and wouldn't unwind smoothly, and I spent a couple of days trying to determine the problem. I only found the issue after comparing it with the strings in other Technic sets like 8460, and called TLG for a replacement.

In 1975 when I was a kid, the 565 Moon Landing gave me fits. At the time it was the most complex build I had undertaken (I was 7 year old) and the old-school lego instructions were not very easy to read and follow.

But the second Boba's Slave 1 (the one with 5 figures) was hard because the bottom fell apart every time!
Nice topic by the way!
