For the Model or the Parts ?
Posted 03 September 2012 - 10:37 AM
(That's why I probably won't buy the crawler. Of the 1300 parts it offers, only 100 or so are interesting. All the rest I already own enough of).
But I don't completely disregard the model and building experience ;)

So now I'm leaning towards for parts!

A couple of weeks ago i would have said for the models but i recently destroyed the trailer from 8049 tractor with log loader to use the power and pneumatic parts for a MOC im working on and when i laid out all the parts for 9396 Helicopter (yes i'm one of those organised builders) i thought "not a bad selection of parts there"......
sooooo 90% for the model but changing as i get into the hobby.

I'm a bit "scared" to mix all the parts toghether from all sets, I'd like to keep them separated(especially the old ones from old sets).
That said I'm always surprised when I see mocs posted here and usually save them so I can try some.

With exception of building 1 or 2 to set moc's made by community members which supply building instructions or detailed photo's for them.
I can't build my own moc's for a reason that's hard to explain in my native language, So I'm not even gonna try in English.

Since it's not so long ago i started with technic lego again i purchased my first sets for the models.
But more and more i'm getting into building moc's myself, so new sets don't last long in their build-state.
I'm looking at different perspective towards new sets.
Is it a nice model?
Does it have a good building experience and techniques?
Does it have a nice part inventory?
How's the price/parts ratio?
Ofcourse you do not always question this for every set, but since i do not buy that much, sets need some of the questions answered positive...
And the last question i'm forgetting, and this one becomes more important:
Does the set give you nice parts for building that sweet MOC from someone else?

I have thought about building every model again and putting them in my room but I don't have space and I want to build Mocs or modify sets I built.
I think the nature of lego is that they should be taken apart at some point, that's why lego is so popular unlike say die cast cars or wooden blocks.
