Over the last year, I bought the 8053, 8069, 9395 and 9397 sets. And what a pleasure to build Lego again! But, i really miss a pneumatic set... When a child, i used to have the 8040:
Pretty basic by today standards, but at that time i really loved the pneumatic system.
Anyway, today, the only set that has pneumatics is the 8110 Unimog, wich is really out of my price range... So i will buy used.
But wich set? It seems like everyone raves about the 8455 and the 8868, both legendary sets.
I really love contruction machines, and the 8455 Backhoe Loader looks great and it seems like the king of pneumatics, but i already have a Backhoe Loader (and my wife will surelly say - "what? you already have a model that looks like this one!" ).
So, for someone that recently came from the dark ages, and keeping in consideration the sets i already have, what do you recommend for a great pneumtic set, in terms of fun to play/build and complexity? The 8868, 8455, or another?
Thanks in advance!
