Hi, I hope this is the right place to ask this question:
I want to get back into Lego technic, more than a decade ago, I was an avid builder and enthusiast, but I no longer own any Lego, and haven't had any chance to get back into it, due to work-life-balance-issues.
However, I am now presented with the opportunity to get back into it, and I am quite floored by all the available models, MOCS and whatnot, so I'd like to ask, which model would be a good starting point for someone who enjoys the build most of all. Preferably, I'd love to buy one set with a few quality B- and C- and D- models, which I can build, re-build and thus get my Lego groove on again.
Budget isn't too much of a concern, though if possible I'd like to stick to below 250€, and I'd very much enjoy something with a few functions, gears and intricacies.
So far, I looked at:
42043 - seems it increased in price but is still held in high regard, but is it worth the asking price of 250€?
42100 - apparently enormous, but I read quite a few mixed reviews when it comes to functionality. Can be had used for 250+-
42082 can be had for 150ish used, seems to provide a few fun functions and a good few b and c models
42055 seems like a behemoth with a lot of functions, can be had for 200€ used.
so, any recommendations on where to get started again, with only one set?
