- Lego WANT of the Day
Not particularly a fan of Harleys or bikes in general, that model is incredible though so I’ll probably end up getting it if I see it discounted. Not only does it look great, the moving pistons are done much better than I’ve ever seen in a technic set (and they are totally hidden once the building work is done 😂) Great review here https://www.brothers-brick.com/2019/07/09/going-full-throttle-with-lego-creator-expert-10269-harley-davidson-fat-boy-review/Posted 3 months agobullandbladderMember

Mobile app. Tick.
Can be bought for the kids but built by me. Tick.
OMFG. I am getting this.
It’s cool. The price though!! (says the guy who spent nearly £300 on the Roller Coaster 😂) Just read a review, the app features etc sound well implemented. The performance is not as good as some of the fan-built rock crawlers I’ve seen (some of which feature more powerful third party motors/batteries etc) but still not bad, thanks to a new element (lego “purists” who think anything except 2×3 bricks should be banned look away now) which is a hub-mounted planetary gear box that gives it a lot more torque than normal Lego vehicles.
… and this one out in October is amazing, though I don’t think I want is as it’s sooo big and not enough of a toy.
That is crazy. I bet it’ll sell well though even at the rumoured price of €450. Not for me though, went off Technic years ago.Posted 2 months ago
Built this with my Son at the weekend.
I can’t afford the silly prices that the genuine, out of production Lego sets are going for on ebay at the moment (£600-800 when they were orginally £370 from Lego) and this came up for £70.
I have to say, bar for 2 missing pieces (I’ve also had this with a recent genuine Lego kit), the set is of very good quality. As the bags/instructions aren’t numbered, building is more of a challenge as there are pieces everywhere, all the time. 16 hours it took us.
Almost 4000 pieces and over 1.35m in length. Now – where to put it…

For this one, I’d say pretty good. It’s fairly solid when handled and everything is clipped/pinned together. BUT, it’s very heavy, especially at the back end. As for the proper 10030 Imperial Star Destroyer (which I also have), I’d say no chance as It’s quite fragile and held together by magnets.
There’s a new Star Destroyer rumoured to be getting released on September 19th, but also that it’ll be close to £600.Posted 1 month agoMing the MercilessSubscriber

Its got almost 5000 pieces, the Falcon had 7500. Its substantially bigger than the Falcon, so a lot of those 5000 pieces are bigger.
Seems fair to me. I’ll be buying one, but from ebay after someone else has bought, built it, found its waaaay too big to keep and then sold it.
Ill then do the same and sell it.Posted 1 month ago
Some nice discounts today in the Argos toy sale (most of which are automatically applied to Amazon as well!) such as the new blue-tooth off-roader 42099, down from £200 to £133. Still a fair chunk but it looks really cool, more torque than ever for a (official) rock-crawler due to the new in-hub planetary gearboxes (cue everyone complaining about “specialist” pieces 😂) Apparently the phone app is great fun also, massive improvement over the old infra-red remote control system.
Also Smyths have a promotion running, £10 off every £50 spent (in store only I think) which equates to about 20%, bringing the massive Millennium Falcon down to £520 which I think is the cheapest ever (new) price, and the only place currently you can get the Friends (TV show) set discounted AFAIK.

The Star Destroyer apparently has nothing going on inside so apart from being massive is a bit dull compared to the Millenium Falcon.
This is what’s putting me off, it’s essentially a display shell. That and I’ve nowhere to put it, unless we forego the the use of dining table…Posted 3 weeks ago
Liebherr R 9800 Excavator was released yesterday, biggest ever Technic set, despite costing £400 the first batch sold out immediately and it’s now on back-order for 2 weeks! Way cooler than the Star Destroyer IMO, not only is it pretty massive & impressive looking, it actually DOES something. Anyone snag one yet?!
It’s controlled by a smartphone app rather than the fairly shitty IR controllers Lego have used in the past, apparently really well done, has a block-based programming language for stringing together moves, recordable macros, plus it’s multi-touch so you can move ALL the motors independently at the same time rather than just moving one motor.
