    42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    Same as me, I am a slow gradual builder, I like to see how it works, build in sections, check it works like it should, fit wheels before model is finished, and push it around, or if using motors test etc.. It takes me a lot longer to build my Technic models. I spend hours on them, but least we get our monies worth eh?
  2. I would hope the Chiron would be better, you'd expect each new set from Lego of this type to slowly improve and make changes and introduce new parts, techniques. Right from the early first Technic super car 8860 - to today each set should be a new challenge and bring new ground. I have both, but only just got around to building the Porsche, I look forward to the Bugatti next. Good video BTW

    I'm nearly done I just hope we can all make the Bugatti as good as this turned out soon as modders etc get their minds on it... As this is an amazing model now, and I'm sure the Bugatti will have its flaws fixed eventually.

    Yes, I am looking forward to the build, the additional parts were not too much extra cost, I have no problem waiting to see what modders do with the Bugatti

    ooh hope so. Just ordered the parts for pimp my Porsche , as that model as a whole bunch of amazing improvements, such as spring loaded doors, stiffer suspension, re worked gearing and removable body along with a handy HOG steering. I can wait to build my Bugatti

    Regarding the Porsche - https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-8003/jb70/42056-pimp-up-my-porsche/#parts a lot of what was wrong with that model was fixed eventually by mods. I suspect the Chiron will get the same treatment, and the suspension will be fixed and improvements will be made. I will wait for improvements before I would attempt to build if you don't know how to fix yourself. That would by my plan.

    maybe, sounds like it might end up being the name used for it.. Right, I'm looking at this and thinking, can I buy this set and another GTR 911 and use the panels from this for the GTR as I love the colour scheme, I think a GTR in blue like this would look fantastic.. Could be expensive lol hopefully bricklink gets the panels and there is the ones needed to change the GTR from orange to blue..

    This looks gorgeous - just blown my Lego monthly budget on a Lego UCS Millennium Falcon at £650 UK so this will have to wait till I have more funds, but I will 100% be getting this set. Loving the colours, not liking the stickers so much sadly. A set of this size and expensie should not have stickers, but then the UCS Millennium Falcon has stickers, so oh well. Loving the brake discs, I think this is an amazing looking Lego Technic model.

    its not that bad, I think one of the biggest issues lately with Technic sets, something I sought to fix in the Mack 2018 set just released is the over used coloured axels. Red, Yellow, Black, Gray, I swapped nearly all of them with Black, the red 2L do my head in, as they are so obvious when you look at the model, I think if Lego want these sets to look more realistic then ditch the colour coded axels, and use just black - when I swapped out the red and yellow axels in the Mack Anthem it made a huge difference to how it looked. I do get these are still toys for 12 - 16 year old teenage kids, so I guess as Adults we can look to reduce the colour vomit as its so called and swap out parts for colours we find more appealing ?
  10. so the next H2 sets are all August 1st? Now which one to buy first, with my monthly Lego Budget ... As I sorta like them all.

    42082 - Rough Terrain Crane

    I wasn't sure when I saw the leaked box art few months back, but now I'm like hey I sorta like that.. Interesting looking model. Hopefully underneath loads of technical aspects to really get stuck into

    What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    Ordered the y wing last night, on Lego.com and I got a fee Vader pod, I messaged Lego asking about BB8 - they said they'll send me the BB8 as well. Amazing service there, can't complain.

    What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    maybe not that popular - maybe why the line is looking to be now cancelled but I'm trying to find and complete the Star Wars Buildable figures right now. and just picked up Boba Fett and found Luke Skywalker and Obi Wan for a decent price. I need around another 10 or so to complete the collection, and now they are discontinued as a line, I really do want to collect the whole set, just so I have them all - for no reason other then owning a entire line of Lego Star Wars Sets : - ) As I'm missing a good few rather expensive ones from my UCS collection.

    I do understand how some love the older styles of 8860 /8880 etc they were and are the original ideals of Technic sets. Show the inner workings of the gears etc. The GT3 has all the gearing and inner workings but hidden behind a huge amount of panels The mack truck is a work of art from the outside and also inside, but all the gearing etc is mostly hidden, so I do understand. However, you still get to enjoy building the differentials, being impressed with the gearing and cogs, axels etc even though they do get hidden by panels and system bricks. I sorta like the half way model team, creator and technic sets we sometimes get nowadays, I understand not for all.
  15. I lost /sold older Lego Technic sets. In terms of money, they aren't worth as much as you think, second hand prices for used Technic sets has dropped, boxed and sealed sets obviously command high prices. However I have now been hunting down my older sets and replacing them, as they have a lot more value to me owned and in my collection then potential money. I regret selling /parting out or losing my older sets.
