    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.
  2. This is the best argument to get 42056 so far! Brilliant!

    42082 - Rough Terrain Crane

    could someone who has 42042 and 42082 (built at the moment (I hardly ever keep the models built for long time ) please take a picture of them together? thank you.

    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.

    42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    sell it for same price as BWE (same part count) (minus for PF in BWE plus license = 0) and I am OK with all the shortcomings. ___________________ I think we are missing big picture. I think most of UC car customers are not Technic people, those are car people, maybe not even lego fans, just guys who loves cars, cannot afford real 911 (real Bugatti either) and their wife buys this as a gift. This is the typical purchase story, IMO. These people do not give a .... anything...about functions, comparison with other technic models, they will build it, put on the shelf/coffee table and that is it. you who are going to modify it, improve it, looking for imperfections, build derived versions etc. you are minority (IMO)

    42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    Great, thanks for info,, because I am buying the red crane, I am not buying the Chiron (I like it, but it does very little - because it is car and cars are inherently low on functions - IMO, and I am not interested in fancy box (I would recycle it anyway in paper container) and display value is zero value for me, I build and rebuild and dismantle and build again, I do not use lego as dust colletors :-) Do not get me wrong, I like it, I really do, but I am just not the right audience to buy it) These parts on the other hand are brilliant, and I am really looking forward to that 90deg ring, the best new part from Lego in years, total winner for me.

    I like the new gearbox parts. especially that 90deg shift ring. I hope they will be in other sets too.

    42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    I think the rear wing is going to be adjustable and it will fold away.

    42082 - Rough Terrain Crane

    I hope it is 2way gearbox like 42042.
  13. I am not sure about the overlapping panels on the crane, but the crane is going to be bought when the prices drops a little. There is a lot I like there even with one official picture. With others it is too soon for me to dismiss them, but also not sure if I would want them.

    [WIP] Le Mans Racers

    that is wonderful! I really like how cleverly you use the panels. On the 1st sight I though it is much bigger, only after few seconds I noticed the scale. The shaping is totally brilliant. I like the 1st colouring better.
