    42100 Liebherr R9800 Excavator

    I know, I am not beginner with children. Trust and responsibility is always good parenting strategy. "you can use my iphone, but I need it for work, so treat it accordingly and you are not allowed to do anything else with it, just lego app, otherwise there will be no more leibherr" "yes, daddy, I get it" As I said before, not a big deal really

    42100 Liebherr R9800 Excavator

    yes (internet) and no. it is not a big deal really, but it is another argument on the kids side in "dad, we need an iphone too" discussion.

    42100 Liebherr R9800 Excavator

    I am not excited about the phone control. I have a smartphone, but we as a family try to limit screen time for children. Lego is one of the non-screen activity my children do (among skiing, reading, cycling, fishing, judo, dancing etc) but now Lego will be screen time. they do not have smart phones of their own. When it comes to technic I build and I MOC, they play. With system they mostly built and play very little, usually stuff get rebuild quickly. so Leibherr playing time will be screen time. Far from perfect from Lego. IMO. (I am buying the Leibherr), this complain is just complain not a deal-breaker.

    42100 - Still a toy?

    I have more expensive fishing rods. I think it is a toy. I even think it is toy even for kids (obviously not 5yo), but it is. Is it for everyone? of course not. I skipped the Porsche, I skipped the Bugatti - IMO both ridiculosly expensive for what they are, even at some "amazon discount" price. I did not buy Technic set since H2 2016, because there was not anything I would feel like I "need" or the price/like ratio was poor or very poor. But I will buy Leibherr 9800, even at this price I will get one. price/like performance is good, even at this price. it is all relative.

    Technic 2019 Set Discussion

    tracked loader is brilliant!!! that is 100% sold on me. This is what technic should be. the best set since 2016 (IMO). for the rest, I am either not an audience (which is ok), or I am not impressed at all (Porsche statue - not like that - as a Technic set it is just wrong. As a Creator that would be ok, borderline cool)

    New LEGO Forma

    why is the targeted to adults? 6yo would get bored with it in 30minutes (that includes 15minutes of building). maybe I underestimate the aging hipsters market and its desire to buy knick knacks and dust-collectors, but I just do not understand this. This does not bring anything over conventional LEGO, neither for adults nor for children.
  8. This is the best argument to get 42056 so far! Brilliant!

    James Bond 2018

    review on brickset. car is ugly. I do not care how clever the build is inside. it is ugly. and making on of the most beautiful cars in history into the ugly one is not good.

    42082 - Rough Terrain Crane

    green and yellow beams in the chassis. I do not like it. lots of asymmetrical panels (I mean without Left/Right counterpart), I do not like it. part of the parts list missing, cropped, but even what I saw is ok. still I like the set very much.

    42082 - Rough Terrain Crane

    looking at the side profile, I really like how back of the superstructure is elevated and black stripe on the side is continued along this profile. That is really cool design detail.

    42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    that is probably true, because they might not be lego people, but they are car people who wrench real cars perhaps. will it stop them from buying next UC technic car? my point is (probably i said it clumsy way) that these listed "issues" people complaint here about will not harm the sales. IMO.
