[REVIEW] 8865 Test Car/Jeep
Posted 22 February 2013 - 11:40 AM
What a gorgeous looking set. It's next on my Supercar shopping list. I have 853/956 and 8860, so this is the next logical step, followed by 8880. I also have 8448 & 8070, so I really want to fill that 2 set gap in my supercars!

Thank you :-)
Mine arrived yesterday. The box is in really good shape and the pieces look really clean!
Not sure whether to do this one first or the Space Shuttle I got a few days earlier (having since cleaned up all the pieces).
Just finished putting together an almost immaculate 8880 which is a really cool build and looks pretty solid next to my 8448

Due to the numbers of involved axles and gears, even small amounts of friction accumulate, and may result in a drivetrain that stucks.

My overall verdict for the 8865: Ugly ;) but in all other criterias a "perfect" ** model - it represents what Lego technic should be...
** "perfect" is related to the term model and means the features and the building fun and the overall concept... of course this set has its flaws, but apart from these ******* 1st generation black pins (which give you sore fingers) all flaws are IMO aesthetical ones (track width, under-dimensioned wheels, flimsy seats)
