  1. This is my personal view and I might be wrong but to me it feels like Technic is losing some of it's focus, it almost feels like the "old days", when technic lost it's focus and the sets that are being released are not hitting the mark. More and more I am seeing posts about how "bad" specific sets are, that sets are being pulled after being announced / released and generally the sets are not being well received, mostly by the AFOL community. 1. Has Technic taken a step back / wrong turn? 2. Is the level of MOC's we see, now so good that almost anything TLG release is seen as "second rate"? 3. Do you feel that the "fun" has gone? I can remember buying sets and loving the technical details / features, seeing how they work and the way they have been built and designed.

    The Future of Technic

    Thanks for all the comments and feedback. I think the "middle ground" of $75 to $150 sets is where I feel we have a missing gap, I used to love sets in this space but of late, I am buying more of the lower end sets as the value of the more expensive sets is not great.
  3. I am on the fence about this. I do see some benefits to having the contests in a separate subforum.
  4. To me, this sounds like a great idea.

  13. Well done, a great start.
  14. As soon as my local store has these, I will be grabbing one. (I have a gift voucher so need to buy it from them).
  15. I am really keen to be part of this. Does a minimum size apply?
  16. Practice... In what way do you think you are bad?
  17. I love this, really well done :)

Overview: For only $15.95, this set is excellent value. The building process was enjoyable and took about 20 minutes. The end result is a very nice little telehandler, that is fun to play with. The fork lifting mechanism works well and is a good introduction to the technical side of LEGO Technic. The steering is a well designed feature and again is a good way to show a technical feature is such a way that it can be understood by the target market for this set. This set is good both to be built as the set and also as a base to create some interesting C models. I have recently built a C model (Farm tractor with Plough) which I found very enjoyable. Things I like: - Fun design. - Enjoyable building process. - Two well designed and interesting features. Things I don't like: - I feel for a little bit more, this could of been even better, with some extra detail. Rating: 4.5/5 - It is hard to find fault with this little set, it is a great introduction to LEGO Technic.
