  1. Just build it. These guys are going to be working on this for months/years. They'll release instructions for each major version, but they'll continually improve upon it. Build the thing, let it sit on a shelf for a few months, and see what magic these guys pulled off in the meantime. The 1:8 Supercars get a new release every 2 years. You have plenty of time to build, then disassemble the Sian. The pimp my Sian will still be here being continually improved during that time. Make no mistake. This project will be better than the factory Lego model. Right now it's more in the beta/prototype stage. Weaknesses will be found, simpler ways to do things will be discovered, and even more improvements to functionality and form will be implemented. While I have a few gripes about the Sian (overly complicated transmission, no Ackerman steering, hood wedge shape) , Lego did a much better job with the entire package of functions and appearance this time. The pimped version will be better, but Lego really improved a lot of things, the Sian is a much nicer overall set than the 911 GT3 and Chiron that preceeded it.

    42115 - Lamborghini Sian FKP 37

    I wouldn't be surprised if slightly mis-matched colors is the new normal. Or at least for a few years while Lego adjusts to its growth.

    42113 Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey

    This set looks great, especially for the functions and pieces you get for the money. Part of me is looking at this, knowing how complex the real thing is, and wishes Lego had used the V22 as next years flagship 3000+ piece set. Would have been a nice departure from big construction vehicles, and there would have been plenty of opportunities for unique Technic mechanical solutions at that scale. At least it's going to be a good priced set with power functions.

    Don't think you'll really start seeing any MOCs outta 42115 for awhile. Lego kinda dropped the ball on supply. I got my order in on the 31st, probably one of the first people in the States to get it through (had to stay up late keeping an eye on local protests and riots, which largely meant hitting F5 until on my PC until it was available for purchase). Was on backorder before the 31st ended. Some parts of Europe had better luck, some had worse luck.

    Lego Technic Sticker Discussion

    I don't mind stickers at smaller scales or lower price points. They work wonders on the Speed Champions line, though not Technic, to give the cars detail that would not be possible at that scale with bricks. They also keep the price down. I know most of us prefer printed pieces, but the print quality on pieces is inferior to the print quality on stickers. This also matters less as things scale up. On the Chiron I absolutely loathed stickers on a flagship set. Especially the not full brick length brake caliper stickers. With Corvette ZR1 I kind of wish they hadn't tried to brick build the headlights, and just used panels to sculpt the shape better and use stickers for the headlights. That set isn't a bad Technic set, but its barely recognizable as a Corvette.

    Had same problem with my Chiron instructions. Present in the online. Pdf instructions too.

    Transmission got a lot more complex. More system pieces to add detail and cover gaps. Body sculpting has gotten progressively better each iteration of 1:8 car.
