  3. Non-vehicle sets & MOCs

    I love this topic, great initiative! I almost never look at sports car MOC topic's, it's just bores me because it's to much of the same for my tast. To me it seems like you can make almost anything with Lego, then why is almost everything a vehicle, and 2/3 of that a sports car!? Feels like a waist of creative potential to me. I do sometimes build vehicles, but when I do it will always be something far away from what is commonly build like my terraformer MOC for instance. I do really like GBC's because they're all very different and unique while doing the same thing. Very challenging and often satisfying to watch.

    Should my battle-bots contest prize ever arrive (been waiting for 2.5 months now!!!) I will have 111 of them... love those things! To keep this post slightly on-topic, 111 frames will be annoying to store in sorting boxes

    call it what AW11?

    Yes, naturally with a video. But it won't be a build log and it will take some time( It's my biggest MOC ever).

    42030, 8275 and 9397 mostly chosen for parts and motors, I never have and never will build those sets. Also I got a 15 KG box of studded lego technic from my girlfriends brother. From that box I salvaged all parts that work with studless and the rest (like 12KG) I never use. Shame actually, I should sell it. @miguev WOW nice! What I really like about my setup is the fact that I see everything all the time. When I have a "how am I going to connect these parts to each other" situation that is not instantly solved by imagining whats parts would do the job, I simply look over all the sorting boxes and remind myself what I have. If you'd constantly see all your parts including the rare ones, are you not more likely to use the perfect part for the occasion then? In practice I some times sort of forget I have certain parts, and will there for make a less awesome solution than I could have if I had just remembered I hat a certain part. The above is very hard to explain but I hope you guy get what I mean. Thank you for that, hope it helps XD

    I think it will last indefinitely, my interest in lego is in technic only. Considering I don't have to store non-technic part's I don't need that much space. On top of that, I don't keep models. I like the building better than a shelve trophy, so when a MOC is done I make a video, take pictures and disassemble. Also I never build 2 MOC's at the same time. those factors make that my collection does not need to be that big, it only grows when I purchase some parts for a specific project like the side blades for maximum impact. What you see on the picture is all I own, I'm still waiting for my prize BWE to come in( very annoying because I'm out of black pins so my rollercoaster build grindend to a halt). After that I don't expect it to grow much bigger. When I restarted last year, I bought 3 yellow construction machine sets to start with. The rest of my collection grew around that, and since I don't like rainbow builds I made sure te rest that I bought matched the existing color trend. I might buy an assortment of red beams some time to spice things up, but for now I'm perfectly happy with yellow&black builds (it's almost a builders trademark by now). Love your setup by the way, very organized!

    I have everything in identical sorting boxes set up around me, the ones wit parts I use most closest to me. and a separate box with all my wheels and all panels. I don't like having to open drawers to get to parts, it needs to be in reach and in view. I work everywhere, I just stack my sorting boxes and move to a free place in my house. Currently my MOC is rapidly outgrowing the table so I expect to move to the floor some time soon. I'll post some beter pix of my workspace in the near future.

  12. Technic 2017 Set Discussion

    I really like the build and functions of the 42069 and 42070 (extreme adventure and the tow truck) I'm just not fond of the colors at all. I only build MOC's and It does not seem to have "I must have it" parts like the yellow arc's in the BWE for instance, so I doubt I'll be buing a new set anytime soon...
  13. Starter Technic Sets for Kids

    I always loved the Lego Technic 42025 Cargo Plane, It has a motor, loads of nice functions, lots of useful parts + it's big and that makes it more awesome to to kids.build time for an experienced builder is about 3.5 hours, the second model you can build with it is a hovercraft. There's a so a new air race jet (42066) also motorized and nice functions and parts, build time for an experienced builder is 2.40 hours. The second model you can build is also an aircraft maybe a budget range would be helpful to help you decide, and weather or not you're hellbent on a NEW set or not. As a kid I always used to ask for a larger second hand set in the "birthday" price range. There's LOADS of adults who buy a set, build "the puzzle" once and then sell it again, often with a box in mint condition and un-damaged (since they mostly don't really play with it).
