    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........

    It's a shame not to make it 4X4! But will look good anyway!

    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

    [VIDEO REVIEW] 42056 - Porsche 911 GT3 RS

    Let me clarify: respect for Sariel's great reviews, indeed. But this time I think he "twisted the knife" a bit... probably this set should have been reviewed with a different eye compared to the other technic sets. Let's say, if he had assumed this is not an usual Technic set but rather a good lego version of a real GT3 RS then the opinions/comments would have been more positive! Obviously he did pointed out the gearbox does't work well, but should this let a set down? No I don't think it should! What if he (I know he builds carefully) made a little mistake (2700 pieces takes a long time a lots of concentration specially when lots of gears are involved) resulting in a gearbox failure? As someone said Lego it's not a finished product, but a starting point for our own developments! This is why we love it I guess...otherwise if you only like to build and then put it on a shelf then this set does the job!

    [VIDEO REVIEW] 42056 - Porsche 911 GT3 RS

    Not really...because this could be just the start of a series of technic sportcars/supercars with less functions, more technic look like but still far away from creator! And since we have it now why people needs to complain and moan about it? It's already made....it's what it is....if you don't like it don't buy it.....

    [VIDEO REVIEW] 42056 - Porsche 911 GT3 RS

    ok then you shouldn't criticise this set at all....you actually shouldn't even be interested on it at all....because this set is not meant to be too "functional"....but rather good looking! The 8070 had 4 useless and easy to design functions and looks dull and cheap compared to the porsche......why so much hate for this porsche then? Guess it's the price...

    Could be a sort of mulcher....but given the cabin pointing in the same direction of the attachment I wouldn't be sure....

    [REVIEW] 42056 - Porsche 911 GT3 RS

    Someone said "Lego technic it's about the function not the look", well since this is a licensed sport car and somehow an unusual technic product I'm sure everybody would have complained if it did work perfectly but looked very ugly........

    42054 - Claas Xerion 5000 Trac VC

    And i'm sure this set will outclass the Porsche.....really looking forward to this beauty now!

    As far as I remember even when it says "ship in 30 days" then normally it o0nly takes few more days than usual......hope I'm right!

    [REVIEW] 42056 - Porsche 911 GT3 RS

    You've always been very negative on every model....I'm sorry but I won't consider your words/opinions/review about this model. Let's face it...it's a toy, a great toy, looks impressive regardless if the gearbox doesn't work perfectly all the time...... Congratulation Jim for such an amazing review, it has been a pleasure to read it and the level of your photos it's simply outstanding!

    42056 - Porsche Speculation

    reconsider what......some voices about a gearbox not perfectly working? or few degrees of steering angle? or price too high? It's a toy, it's meant to have fun with while building it, not only by playing with it. It's meant to stay on a shelf and, as far I'm concerned, looks pretty good! In the past we have had really boring ugly cars.....and if it's too expensive simply don't buy it! If people wants something perfect then buy parts and build your own MOC! This is a Lego set...already designed and tomorrow will be on sale...just take it from there....
