    [HELP] Which Technic Set Should I Buy?

    That's a tough one. I have the 42053 and it's nice, relatively nice functioning with a motor to take over the pump function. It is flimsy but for the price it gets the job done. For the 42055, I've had minor interest in this and starting to pick up due to the parts and possibilities from them. The set though is double the price but also 3.5x more pieces. It's also new like the volvo so if you get on one now and one later it's not going to disappear over night. That being said do you want pneumatics or power functions?
  2. After seeing it in the shop yeah it is quiet small at least compared to the Arocs which it was sitting next to.
  3. Oh boy great idea's all around. Really eager to dig into this more this weekend. Since I'm enjoying my model so much I'm also building it on LDD with all the tweaks I'm implementing as I go along. One of the first mod's I've done to any of my models and this seems to be well worth it in the end.
  4. I'd concur with that. Its actually a step I stopped at looked at steps ahead and played with it a bit to make sure there was no issue with it last night. There is no rub interference on it at all.
  5. Oooh got lucky was gun shy yesterday at pulling the trigger but got to the store with the last box left today at lunch. Proud owner of the Porsche. Looking forward assembly/modifications to this. Thanks for the Review Jim and Thanks to everyone so far with the minor, yet major, modifications that make it more function able.
  6. People are going to click it because no one is describing whats going on.... Some new subscription channel with not many views put it up to hopefully make some $$$ by destroying things. Course so happens this is their first video. The link is the speed build of the model followed by destruction by axe, sledge hammer, and even cutters. There is a quick video on their channel that just shows the destruction of the vehicle. Such a shame but you'd be suprised how many people will watch this for like destroy an Xbox, Playstation, iPhone, iPad, etc. Reason why people watch it and they get into the millions of views per video = some cash.
  7. All these fixes, makes me consider buying it now. Saw it at the store today and just couldn't pull the trigger. Might now if I go back. Question is if TLG decides to fix these errors will they send out parts to the people that already own the set or the pioneers of the sets out of luck and just have to rummage their existing inventory?

    42055 - Bucket Wheel Excavator

    Actually that is very accurate showing of how it separates materials. You really won't find a live video showing it because its too hard to get a camera in the enclosure since its all sealed.
  9. Maybe they wanted technical feedback before sending more units out? Or maybe they are working on a nicer solution and will drop the news later.

    42055 - Bucket Wheel Excavator

    Trying to remember been a few years. My only guess is using axle rods to keep the larger pieces out and having smaller ones fall through, but you'd have to have them turning or moving some how constantly to make sure there is product flow. The large material would get pushed through to a crusher and spit out the left side, smaller material would fall through and go out the right side. This way you get a little extra through put on the machine within the same footprint. Could easily see a MOC with a bin on one side that conveys up and dumps into another bin to be crushed and comes out on another conveyor to be transported off to processing. Another unit that is also out there in the field.

    Porsche Pricing & Availability

    Some people are not to bright when it comes to math and all the hidden fee's.

    Sequential Dual Clutch Gearbox

    Oh sweet! Great job. Looking forward to the LDD hopefully in the near future. Something I defiantly want to start looking into in the near future is playing around like this with sets. Just need a few more to be more to get a decent set of pieces :)

    42055 - Bucket Wheel Excavator

    I really like the look of the B-Model as well. Considering that I was part of a design team at a company that was making something very similar to that. Might be a better buy than the Porsche.
  14. Great review here Jim. I was all out about to get this ASAP... though now I'm a little torn might wait a wee bit for this one and come back to it a little later. I'm sure that people will come up with good MOC's and MOD's and will push me to get it in the end as I want to expand my collection and I do enjoy cars.

    42056 - Porsche Speculation

    OOOh nice. Having it black or something similar would of been nice, but after seeing it in orange its growing on me. Looking forward to this... probably later in the year though but still will be looking forward to it.
