  1. First time I feel Sariel is very happy about a set! It's a shame the hood and cabin are flimsy but we will forgive TLG for this, simply a wonderful set! Question: using the HOG is it heavier than the Unimog or not?
  2. Accurate and great review as usual Sariel, enjoyed it and thanks for bringing it to us! My opinion now: bad proportions, ugly look, almost zero playability given the speed and complexity of gearbox (also who is going to actually play/dig stuff with it??) , ok on the +3900 parts...but one can still buy only the ones needed on Bricklink/BrickOwl.....so for me is a massive no! I don't see why TLG needed to make this set....

    42053 - Volvo EW160E

    New hand pump looks absolutely interesting!! Again this medium size set seems to be amazing! What I like about it is that reminds me on proper old technic sets! Compact with lots of functions and features!

    42054 - Claas Xerion 5000 Trac VC

    HOLY MOLY!!! Once again this set will be epic and will be "desired" for the next 20 years at least! So much potential thinking at the attachments plus those tyres can be used in many amazing mocs!!!

    42056 - Porsche 911 GT3 RS - MODs and Improvements

    stretched tyres, anyone? :tongue: I did put the 42000 tyres on the Porsche rim.....amazing result!!
  8. I like all these improvements. And will definitely apply them all. I also think there should be mods like "adjustable camber" or "coilovers" version, all mods like the tuners do on cars Maybe sway bars, "lower" springs, wider body kits, lower bumpers......

    Hello guys, after reading the latest posts here I had a look at my Lego account and now my order says "Contact Customer Service".....where other people here states it went from backordered to in warehouse..... :cry_sad: Why would they not say something similar? Why would they leave a customer confused like this? What if I hadn't checked my Lego account?? This sounds like a joke to me...

  13. Wowwwwww! That's insane! I really like it, specially for it's size and the power it seems to deliver! on the "fast mode" how also faster it drains the battery?

    42043-D Mercedes Benz Unimog U4000

    Yes but wait a second...it's a D model with other sets parts! Doesn't sound right! you should start from the 62.4 wheels and figure out the scale/size of the Unimog........

    42043-D Mercedes Benz Unimog U4000

    It's a shame not to make it 4X4! But will look good anyway!
  19. OMG the memory lane!!!!!!! This would be a nice place where to "rest in peace"....

    42054 - Claas Xerion 5000 Trac VC

    Maybe for TLG the BWE is the flagship....but for me it will be the Class. And somehow I can place the Volvo in 2nd position.....simply a cute authentic technic set! Regardless the size or the low number of pieces involved....

    Technic in Real Life

    I "operate" every day a Porsche.....but haven't received my GT3 RS yet as Lego wants me to wait LOL And then a forklift, a lorry, a tractor similar to Class ( since I was 14 years old :wub: ), go-karts, a foldable crane, a front loader (I was 11 years old )

    [VIDEO REVIEW] 42056 - Porsche 911 GT3 RS

    An "healthy" company that sells well means more development and investment in the future...so we can expect greater sets in the future!! Now...let's move to the Class Xerion as soon as possible because I can't wait! Update us anytime you can Sariel!

    [VIDEO REVIEW] 42056 - Porsche 911 GT3 RS

    @ Sariel: Afterall I would like to thank you for the review, we all know you express your own opinion in it but don't forget you have 100K subscribers so somehow it's an opinion with a lot of power and influence. Hope when each of us get hands on this set will be able to enjoy the build, the look of it and eventually give our own opinion on the "working" gearbox.

    [VIDEO REVIEW] 42056 - Porsche 911 GT3 RS

    You don't disassemble a washing machine to rebuild it into a B model or something else... the concept behind lego instead is to do build limitless things!! Also I prefer to enjoy the product...not the tag given to it: ultimate/racer/creator/technic
