  1. So far Creator Expert has only been about system sets and I assume it will remain that way. I think it's simpler for Lego to keep all of their sets made of Technic pieces in the Technic line. It's because Technic is a lot different from system bricks for someone who doesn't know about it, so it's a good way for Lego to clearly tell the consumer they'll get Technic pieces and not a traditional system set. Oh I completely agree with that. But even if there were called Model Team, they would still be Technic cars. Unless I didn't understand correctly what you meant and you rather suggested that they'd stop doing simpler Technic cars and make them with system pieces instead ? As I said in the second part of my message, Lego need those simple sets as a way to get people who aren't familiar with the Technic system to discover it and eventually buy more similar sets. If all the sets were really complex, sure it would please longtime, hard-core fans, but it might drive potential new customers away. The Aston Martin DB5 10262 is the example to prove that you can't always combine functions with a good-looking model. The Mustang works well because its shapes can be faithfully recreated with Lego. Modern supercars have complex shapes that are much more difficult to do at a smaller scale and with system pieces. That's why Speed Champions heavily relies on stickers, although this year's increase in width allows more brick-built details. Exactly. PS : We're going off topic, I'm sorry for that. I think it's an interesting subject, but we're here to talk about the 2021 Technic sets after all, so maybe @Jim will want to split the thread.
  2. It's rumoured to have 1677 pieces for 180€, and sets with a similar amount of parts are either cheaper or come with PF / C+ that bump the price. Or perhaps the Ferrari license is really expensive ? Or the price or the parts count is wrong. Merge what with the Creator Expert line ? I see the subject being brought up frequently, people asking to sell the simpler Technic sets as part of a different theme because they can't stand sets with less functionality, and I don't understand that. These simpler sets are sold under the Technic name because they're made with Technic elements, it's that simple, even if they're not as technically complex as some would wish. Now, even if it's very unlikely because there's only so much sets they can release each year, I'd love to see more Creator Expert-styled cars, and it would be even better if they had some simple functions, but I don't think it would mean the Technic line would focus more on more complex sets and do without the more simple ones. Lego need those simple sets as a way to get people who aren't familiar with the Technic system to discover it and eventually buy more similar sets. If all the sets were really complex, sure it would please longtime, hard-core fans, but it might drive potential new customers away. I thought only 42124 had purple ? Anyways, I'm more looking forward to the tel plane 42117.
  3. The Ferrari will have 500 more pieces than the 42000, so a gearbox is still possible. Also, given the price, the set could have motorized functions (with a dumb battery box), like 8070 ?
  4. Oh, that's a good idea. The last one is from 2013 (2014 if you count 42026), so it's been quite a while. I rather think either the parts count or the price is wrong.
  5. Do the suspensions still work with these mods ?

    Printing can be erased anyway, so it's not too much of an issue.
  7. Well, to be honest I didn't like the idea of those contests, mainly because I felt it was better to leave Bionicle alone. But we're seeing some interesting entries that I feel fit well in the G1 universe and that I wouldn't mind seeing getting canonized, like entries n°9 in the poll 9, n°1 in the poll 10, and n°1 and 2 in the poll 11. I don't think we'll get as good entries for Artakha, I don't see how he can be accurately represented in Lego form.

    Like with a round hole instead ? (Don't worry guys, it's just a small mockup I made with Mecabricks )
  9. This is incredible. I'm really eager to learn how to do animations.

    Apparently the changeover catch has been updated. The main difference is at the cross axle. The tip seems rounder, but that might be due to the angle of the render. It should be in the Sián, so people who have it could make a more accurate comparison between both versions.

    42107 - Ducati Panigale V4R

    There is : https://brickset.com/inventories/42107-1 :) It is incomplete, though. The windshield is missing, as well as another part, but I don't know which one (brickset says the inventory has 644 of the 646 parts).

    Elon's Retreat.

    I saw it earlier on Flickr. It's a great model. My favourite thing is the interior and the "modularity" of the build, but I also really like the layout, with the inclusion of two big rocks, and the blend of wood and stone for the castle. It makes the model more interesting, and gives a story to the castle. It's as if they've built the wooden areas on top of the rocks first, and then built fortifications in front of them.

    The topmost part is a fez, but it does not have an axle hole. The part in the middle is indeed a cone 33492. Here's how the whole thing is built :
  15. Congratulations to everyone. More than 60 entries, that's impressive ! 9: 1020: 633: 461: 36: 221: 1
