The 42037 Formula Off-Roader is a new 2015 Technic set with just under 500 parts, making it a medium sized model compared to the other ones released at the same time.
The box contains:
There are not too many Technic Motorcycle sets released, the last ones being the 42007 Moto Cross Bike in 2013 and the 8291 Dirt Bike in 2008. The 42036 Street Motorcycle set is the latest one to be released.
I was able to get my hands on this 2015 Technic flagship set (thanks to Kim from the LEGO CEE team!) for review. It does not have as many parts as previous flagship models,...
This 42035 Mining Truck is one of the first new Technic sets of 2015. It is a small/medium sized set, and has a great looking design. Read on for the full review....
This is my second full sized Modular Building set (see the Parisian Restaurant review). I really enjoyed the first one, so read on to see how this one compares :)
I didn't do a birthday post in August this year, instead I decided to switch to calendar year annual updates. Rebrickable's third year saw lots of user growth, lots of new functionality, and lots of data improvements.
We have certainly had a busy November. For the first time in Rebrickable's 3 year history, I have had another developer help me with code changes. As a control freak, this was pretty nerve wracking at first. However, unlike myself, Jantjeuh is a professional web developer who has also been a Rebrickable Inventory Admin for the last 4 months and at the start of November started helping me fix my dodgy code. Surprisingly he didn't run away screaming after seeing it :) He has been invaluable in refactoring a lot of code to make it easier to maintain and helping me switch to better web development workflows like using git. Thanks Jantjeuh!
Rather than pick another of the community supplied robots that come with the EV3 software, I wanted to build a Rubik's Cube solving robot. It just so happens there is a fantastic project already available that creates one from just the 31313 EV3 parts - the MindCub3r created by David Gilday. Awesome :)
