    42078 Mack Anthem Mods and improvements

    Now I want this set! Brilliant job! As a New Yorker I appreciate the snow plow.

    [MOC]Lego Suzuki Jimny Sierra

    I had hoped someone would do a Technic version. Instantly recognizable; nice job! Now if only we could get the Jimny in the U.S.

    I have had success removing tampo prints with rubbing alcohol before, and Goo Gone would probably work too.

    Superbike - Video added

    Very nice; great proportions! After trying many times to add a working gearbox to my own superbike, I am still baffled by it. Not enough room and not enough brain power I guess. I'll have to try it with the orange selector gear sometime.

    42056 - Porsche 911 GT3 RS - MODs and Improvements

    This is common on all parts that use the + axle hole, unfortunately. The plastic is too thin.
  7. It's absolutely stunning indeed! To say you captured the lines would be an understatement. And, thank you for making a manual version.

    [MOC] Black Mamba offroader

    Very well done! I too love the working fan I appreciate the smaller off-roaders and wish LEGO would do something like this. Technic, plus system and RC.

    42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    I tried doing a comparison using those exact images but realized that the perspective of the side view of the actual car is off, making the front overhang appear shorter than it really is.
  10. Thanks for posting the full reveal. The "official" stream was very short for some reason. It must have been a really great experience no doubt, but I would have been quite anxious having to speed build in front of that many people while being streamed live. The set isn't perfect but I do think it ticks most of the boxes that it needed to. The stickers though...

    The front suspension is worrying

    42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    If you look at the die-cast car world, Bugatti replicas usually carry a premium. A normal AUTOart model car is around $150-$180 US, however their Veyrons and upcoming Chirons are close to $300. Even with the low end Bburago there is a 15% increase for the Bugatti license.

    42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    The LEGO Group originated this mass leak by not only shipping the product to stores but allowing them to be sold. I'm excited for the reviews, the various mods that improve it, and MOC's built using the new pieces. That is all that matters. This cat was well out of the bag by what is the internet equivalent of a years' time and I imagine LEGO are quite miffed indeed. The sets should have been shipped to stores a week after the unveiling, simple as that. Back on topic, I must say that I love the inclusion of the key feature. A very nice touch.

    42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    I managed to save the video, uploaded to Singapore Technic on FB I'm very impressed with this set, and that is something I could not say about the Porsche after the first reveal video. The Chiron is quite something.

    And working rear spoiler / air brake. We know it moves, just not sure how yet Actually, looking at the 1:1 key that is included I wonder if that gets inserted somewhere and turning it raises and lowers the rear spoiler. Hmm...
