    Your Best Technic Bargains

    Years ago I bought two 9398s that had been vandalized at a thrift store. They were missing some panels, the portal axle hubs, and all the electronics. The wheels were still there, though. I ordered the electronics and other missing parts from Lego. Total cost, ~$70-75 USD.
  2. Sorry, I am still somewhat new here. I have my own MOC over 95% done, and it is 1% copied from an official set. I stole the zoomie headers from Emmett's escape buggy.
  3. I am guessing that it would be fine, but I am still going to finish my tracked snow dune flying buggy. Still need to come up with a name for it.
  4. Just out of curiosity, @Jim, you said that modding a set was frowned upon. What if someone took several different sets and combined them. That is how the vehicles of mad max were actually built, right? Say, someone took the body of 42050 and placed it on the chassis of 9398, with the tow boom of 8285 sticking out the back. That would not necessarily be a moc, but would not be a mod either.
  5. But Antarctica is also uninhabited. I was thinking about creating a half-track dune(drift?) buggy, meant to outrun rather than fight. Weapons optional.
  6. Does it have to be a desert wasteland, or could we build something meant for snow instead? If Australia turned into a desert, than the US could be covered by a glacier.
