HorcikDesigns posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingI've been thinking quite long, what to build for 40 years anniversary of LEGO Technic, that's why I am slightly late for the party with this model. Then, suddenly an idea was born - build a car that looks like the wedge-shaped supercars from 70'. (mainly because I do not meet large amount of them re-created from Technic so often) Features: full suspension, positive caster angle on front wheels inline 3 cylinder engine right behind seats, single headlamp that will pop out if you push the yellow lever, working HOG with working steering wheel, openable doors and openable engine bay cover with absurdly long exhaust pipes. So, here is my attempt to build it. I hope to get back to this topic soon with proper supercar scale. concept WEDGE by Horcik Designs concept WEDGE concept WEDGE wedge chassis concept WEDGE Hope you like it. PS: If you want to see another MOC soon, please start following my activity on Flickr. (after reaching 1000 threshold, I'll submit something special )
Saberwing40k posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingFolks, believe it or not, our favorite Lego theme turns 40 in 2017! Since 1977, Technic has been the most challenging and interesting models in the Lego lineup, and I think that Lego should celebrate the line's 40th birthday. So, what do you think they should do? Here are my ideas: Either in late 2015, or early 2016, Lego initiates a new competition: Technic 40th Birthday Present! It would be sort of like the challenge with the 9398 crawler that produced the 41999, but different. The rules would be somewhat simple: design a creation with ~2500 parts, based on any Technic set from the past 40 years, and both the votes of the fans and the design team would determine a winner. In addition, there would be a couple of different new colors and new parts options, to introduce some new parts or colors into the Technic lineup. The above would be the best case scenario, but there are other options. For instance, a voting contest that would have a full catalog of all Technic sets, except for some of the more recent ones, and the ones with the most votes would be the ones that get modern remakes, and form the Technic lineup for 2017. Or, the above, but the most popular set would be the flagship of 2017. Or, as a final option, a new part design competition. I'd really like for there to be some sort of competition or fan involvement, but if that were not going to happen, I'd either like to see updated Technic figures or some remakes of interesting sets, like a new, true 8880 successor, or an upgraded version of 8480. What do you guys think?
