With my re-found love for all things Technic I'm looking at my first pull-back Technic set. These weren't around when I was young. They look a good way to expand the Technic building process into a fun, playable set after the build. My kids are gonna love it for sure!

The first thing I thought when I saw this set announced was: Yet another crane. And indeed it feels like cranes return nearly every year in Technic form. Does this set offer anything new?

LEGO Technic has been the most consistent theme in LEGO, producing sets for over 40 years. The Car Transporter is one of the bigger ones for the year, and posed me a question I have been ignoring since coming back to LEGO as an adult, "do I like building Technic sets?" Some of my fondest childhood memories of LEGO are Technic sets, I loved them. But after my 'dark ages' I never found the love for them again (probably something to do with the more complex looking studless models). I have avoided taking on reviews for Technic sets as I never felt qualified to give an opinion (leaving Tobymac to do all the Technic heavy lifting). But I can't put it off forever. So here's a review of the first major Technic set I have built in over 20 years.

Today a mini-review. I'll be looking at MOC-30664 Custom RC 42110 Landrover Defender. This MOC is from the outside the same as the 42110-1 Landrover Defender, but underneath, PowerFunctions are added that make the model remote controlled. What I am most curious at, is the performance. The Landrover is not a small or light model. Will the 2 motors be enough to power the car?

Two motors, tracks and a remote control. Seems simple enough. Does this equal FUN? Or do you need more?

In a first, a LEGO model had preceded the real life model. Pictures of this set appeared before Land Rover was able to announce their latest model. There has already been a lot said about the color. Let's judge the rest.

The largest Technic set ever, with the largest amount of motors, all controllable by an app. But also the most expensive. Is it worth the money?

This week we have a Blast from the Past! The classic (that word makes me feel old...) 8868-1 - Airtech Claw Rig from 1992. This was one of my childhood dreams. But my budget was limited. By the time I saved enough, the 8480-1 - Space Shuttle came out. And I was a big space geek at that time. This week, the 8868-1 finally arrived. Come join me!

If you are a LEGO Technic fan, and perhaps, even if you are not, you must have noticed the incredible media campaign surrounding the introduction, on June 1st, 2018, of LEGO's latest and largest super car, Technic set 42083, the Bugatti Chiron. In the six weeks since that introduction, I have read or watched fifty or more reviews of this super set, and almost all of them, I am sorry to say, got it wrong. They review this set as if it were a regular Technic set; in other words, you build the set as fast as you can, and then you evaluate how good it looks, how good it functions, and how good it plays.

Madoca's Icarus Supercar is a 1:10 scale model of the McLaren P1. Madoca says it's heavily inspired by the McLaren, due to some small differences, but it looks damn close to me.
