This is pretty much my complete collection of Technic bricks (collected between 1994 and 2001), no models are currently built, except for my one Model Team one (5541).

I've only recently came back to Lego as an adult (I'm 23 now), and I haven't bought a single set in 11 years - my last one was "Extreme Offroader" in '01. Naturally I'm a little bit skeptic about the new studless parts, but at least it isn't like in the early 2000s, when I really thought Technic was a dying breed. I'm sure I'll get acclimated to the new way of building, assuming I won't just grow bored again soon and end up not getting any new sets at all...

I've been collecting for 2 years, and have accumulated 99 sets. I bought the two aluminum racks  before I discovered BrickLink, and thought I was close to having a complete collection. I used to go to TRU and point at what I had and so on. Little did I know there was an entire world of sets out there waiting for me.

Oh, and some boxes. I can't figure out what to do with them.

Ten more sets are in build queue/missing parts right now, bringing the total up to 109. Maybe some day I'll have them all.

I love these small parts magazines. I own 13 of them with approximately 420 boxes. I will post some photos when I'm home again.

I restarted approx 2 years ago.
These are my sets

+ "some" loose parts..

Only 4 sets in a 'build state' right now.
The rest is in 4 big boxes (crates?), all parts neatly sorted in separate boxes.

The German TRESTON GmbH offers really great opportunities to store your spare parts: http://www.treston.d..._category2=4409 I have never seen better storage systems referring to quality and size but these boxes are quite expensive. Therefore I only own one of "554 ESD" for the bigger parts. That was the time when I thought one of these storage systems is enough for all my spare parts - silly billy... :laugh:

There are really cheaper providers of such storage systems but in most cases as far as I'm concerned the boxes are to small to store 1x15 liftarms.

just started here on EB, and collecting  but last week a nice update for the collection. Had a great deal on "marktplaats", somekind of e-bay.

Only thing is that it is all bulk. In total 35 kg  :blush:  of technic and some starwars.

Will make some photos when finished sorting and building, so maybe end of 2012  :grin:

It includes 2*8258 (oh me like), 2*8043 and very important 8868.

Well, if you have an 8880 box complete with the little special parts tray (the little square clear tray) i'de be happy to take that off your hands  :grin:
Even the best can be made better, but most important is to be excellent to each other and party on dudes!!!!!!

The box is in excellent condition, but there are some writing on the front lid with red ink saying "24.12.94" on them at the front wheel and driver's seat.

Almost all my Technic is wrapped up in plastic bags as i'm renovating my house and my new display cabinets aren't built yet.

The only thing I could find to get a picture of worth while was my larger wheels, 22 power puller wheels + 32 Uni-mog tyres.
