    That's a take I read quite a few times, so maybe I'll have to look gor a 42043/42055 then, which seem like "real" technic sets

    Is the set generally viewed favourably? I read a lot about there being lots of fluff to up the parts count... Reads as if I should look for a 42055 or 42043. Though it seems weird that the 42043 is about as much as a 42100, both used. Is that due to availability issues?

    Hi, I get where you are coming from. I like to build interesting and intricate systems and functions. I used to build Mindstorms in small competitions, designing and building y own robots from scratch and I built lots of weird technic stuff, but for now I would like one set with a good building experience and interesting functions to get back into it. I'd prefer one large set due to the waf and I would prefer Lego due to the resale value, should I discover that I am not that into it after all

    Mostly because it will be much easier to get one set past the government, if you catch my drift
  5. 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?
