On the 13th this month it was my Birthday. And after a few hours of annoying my parents, they agreed to get me some lego... Under 1 condition I have to modify it into a RC car. I agreed and to my delight I recived 8436. So lets start.
Theme: LEGO / TECHNIC
MSRP: $90.00 (I got it for WAY above that.. 200 USD... Lego in Malta is EXPENCIVE! :-( )
This truck has 3 models, wich are shown all over the box.
Here is the normal box.
The flip thing flipped, Showing the other models.
Inside the box, theres you guessed it, More boxes! 3 infact. Numbered. As well as 2 manuals (a common sight nowadays) and no DSS ( © Xwingyoda) !
Boxes in the box...
The manuals and the single baggie outside of the boxes.
Pins Galore... And thats just from 1 box!
The build took me 6 hours. With breaks ofcourse. Remove breaks and its a 4 hour build, but I rarely build techinc things so thats why it must have taken me so long :-) .
The chassy is ready! V6 engine... Could have had a gearbox..
The Cab. Too bad you can't steer with the actual steering wheel. But thats because the cab can swing forward to show the engine.
The Grabber. The only atatchment I built as I'm too lazy to built the others.
The Big Picture
Over all I like it, recomend if you want to make a mistake whick you notice near the end meaning you have to disassamble half the truck ( X-D Happend twice to me). So heres a general pic with the arm in action.

Parts 9/10 - Good varaity of parts, but could use one more ram...
Build 7/10 - Not bad, took me a while was fun but easy to make mistakes (Not that thats a AFOL's problem, probably Im just clumsy)
Playability 2/10 - Not much to do... But a great dust collector! :-P
Coolness Factor 10/10 - I personally think its a very cool model
Over all - 7/10 Not a bad model, looks cool but dont recomend it if you plan on playing with it or swooshing it around in the nude. X-D
Again, sorry bout large pics. Resizing as we
I added a gearbox.
