    Neither will I, but i was just curious where will this is going to lead? This set will be over 4k parts (4,108 to be precise), 42082 had 4056 parts, BWE was 3956 parts. So i see a steady increase in part number in flagship sets. My curiosity was - where is this going? 5k, 6k, - 10k flagship sets? And to what extent will those sets be considered toys anymore?!

    Also if you come to think about it, the whole idea behind Technic was to make teenagers more familiar with how different mechanisms work and to put into 3d some of the things they were learning in school over various disciplines. Today i believe it has turned into "this year's flagship will let you build the biggest thing ever while using a ton of batteries". Oh and don't get me started on the instruction manuals... I was looking through some of my old sets and in 20 pages you could fit both model A and B. Nowadays you need a whole step just so that you turn the model in a different perspective. And they wonder why people are getting less and less attentive to details and inventive.... But then again maybe it is just me... and everything is just going along in a orderly and fashionable way....

    Looking forward to seeing some more photos of this huge model, While looking at the photos and reading all this thread, i couldn't stop but wonder where is Lego heading with these huge sets, Last three years the part count has constantly went up - where are they heading? 10k parts. I mean when will these toys stop being toys. I know it is a little off-topic but still... And as a side note, I will be getting this awesome set for my son (most likely when it will hit the stores) for Christmas.
