    Excellent work! This is Technic at its best!

    42107 - Ducati Panigale V4R

    Well done TLG! Even I am not a motorbike enthusiast, I will for sure get this one. A good 3-in-1 for me; good functions, good looks, good parts

    [TC18] Trabant 601

    Totally agree that it's irrelevant for TC18 My only intention was only to point out that even TLG has used this connection. And thanks for an interesting article on brick stress

    [TC18] Trabant 601

    Not my intention to reopen the discussion regarding connection between half pins and Tecnic triangles, but in my opinion it must be considered legal. If I remember correctly, the same technique was used at least for the 8868. If the method is used in official models, I guess it's fair to say it's legal. Ok, I realize that the 3/4 pin was introduced in 1995 (three years after the 8868), but I think my point is still valid.

    Generic Contest Discussion

    I am now repeating an idea I posted almost three years ago in another topic. What about a universal set contest? The entry would have to be a universal set inventory and instructions for different models. Perhaps different classes; basic, pneumatic, PF, etc. A good entry in a competion like this, would include only common parts. In other words, anyone with a decent modern Technic collection should be able to replicate the models (perhaps not in the exact colors, but still...).
  6. I think most kids in the target age range will try it out in water. I can't imagine myself as a kid NOT playing with it in water.
  7. Thanks a lot for great reviews - as always! Especially I appreciate details and testing of the new diff and hull parts! The catamaran is a positive surprice indeed!

    42108 - Mobile Crane

    Manually operated outriggers is one thing, to me totally manual slewing is even worse. On a mobile crane, IMO the core functions are related to operation of the crane itself, including slewing. I am aware of that all the "modern" mobile cranes (42009, 8053, 8421) have only manual slewing, but still... Slewing worked perfectly well on 8460, it shouldn't be to hard to implement in newer models. Perhaps LEGO believes that manual slewing gives better playability, easier to bring the boom to parked position etc.?
  9. They are even present on the inland glaciers of Greenland. Perhaps they are planning to make a clone series of the old Arctic Action theme...

    Your Best Technic Bargains

    I find it for NOK 3472 at lekekassen.no, that is around £295. But it is a Norwegian online store, and I think they only deliver to Norwegian customers.

    Technic 2020 Set Discussion

    The piece count of 8053 is 1289 (according to BL), so perhaps something similar?

    Technic 2H2019 Video Reviews

    Thanks a lot for the great review! I have already ordered the set, expecting it in a few days. My 8 year old son watched your review, and is really excited and inpatient to start building. Torque is perhaps not the biggest disappointment, the ground clearance is worse...
  13. Sad to hear that. Condolences to his family and friends. Rest in peace Ingmar.
