Using these, it was possible to make the Generation 1 cylinders pull down as well as push up, however the pulling wasn’t as strong as the pushing, and this prompted Lego to redesign the pneumatics into an easier-to-use and stronger system.

Let’s escape out of space and back onto Earth, where we’ll take a look at a couple categories we’ve already seen, but thrown together for good measure: expensive sports car models and the Lego Technic series. That’s right—we’re back with the Technic line to take a look at the Porsche 911 GT3 RS model, one of our favorite vehicle models ever put together by the company best known for bricks. If you thought the Ferrari model listed above was gorgeous, the Technic Porsche takes the cake and devours it too. This thing is complete with an adjustable rear spoiler, fully-functioning headlights and taillights, suspension springs underneath the vehicle, fully-customized rims, and even detailed brake calipers. The gearbox works, complete with a movable steering wheel, gearshift paddles, detailed seating, a glove compartment, and a unique serial number. And, of course, as if we even have to mention it—the hood and doors both open, revealing a suitcase in the front and the engine in the rear of the vehicle. Yeah, this thing is gorgeous, and a total collector’s item, as you’d expect for $299. But with 2,700 pieces, the piece-to-price ratio is pretty decent here, and you even get a full-color collector’s book detailing the history of both the Lego Technic series and the Porsche GT line, so your three Benjamin’s go a long way on this one. It’s a hobbyist product, to be sure, but so are all of these Lego products, and this Porsche model is one of our absolute favorites.
This set has incredible detail, and is fun to build. I built this set (Dad), and each of my boys built the other two (Fire Brigade and Pet Shop) . The build was enjoyable, and it was fun to watch come together. in fact, we enjoyed it so much, that we started building the sets on a Sunday morning together, and we all stayed with it until the sets were done a few hours later. It was a fun family project.
Okay, maybe I’m not understanding everything completely… I’ve been looking for 10199 winter toy shop… S@H doesn’t have it on their website, and it seems to be scarce online. The lowest price I can find it is $70 when the MSRP is $60. If it’s not “discontinued” yet, is it just sold out? And why doesn’t Lego carry it?
LSP borrows and adapts concepts of constructivism, and may have an important role to play in supporting multi-sensory approaches to reflecting on learning, either along with, or instead of, basic writing. The structure of Lego Serious Play allows participants the freedom of exploring and expanding on new ideas without the fear of being wrong or looking stupid. After all, they are simply playing with Legos.
So my question is, should I pass on this theme as a whole, or jump in right now and start relocating my assets to get the three sets that are still out. How many people out here are collecting them and how many pass them up based on price or lack of interest? Again I don’t have many city sets, (currently the only city sets I have that are complete and constructed are the City Small Car (3177), and Camper (7639)). But then again, it would be an excellent display for many Collectible Minifigures, which I collect avidly.
My solution to ensure some creative Harry Potter-themed Lego fun without breaking the bank has used all of the above sources. First, I showed my daughter the downloadable plans for all the Harry Potter Lego sets which gives her great ideas, and helps her build approximations of them with our old Legos (we have tons, including a lot from my own childhood — one of Lego’s many virtues is that it’s practically indestructible!). Then, I ordered some special parts and figures from Bricklink (spiral staircases, Gryffindor banners, the Fat-Lady’s portrait hole, chocolate frogs, etc.), scored one small lot of mixed Harry Potter Lego pieces at a reasonable price on eBay, and found the rest of the pieces we needed on the lego.com site (where we got a free gift). I then left it up to my kids’ imaginations to build their own Hogwarts. The colors might be a mixed bag, but all their friends ooh and aah when they come over, and I haven’t heard one word of complaint.
@yys4u: I understand the desire to be complete, but if cost is really an issue, I would suggest doing as colethegeek says: buy the current ones at the more reasonable retail price, since they’ll be enough for an impressive street scene. After that, if you still desire the out of print sets, you can begin on those, and hopefully your financial situation is improved. Also, I would focus on getting Cafe Corner and Green Grocer and pass on Market Street.
Bane’s drill, though not really in character for him, is really, really cool. When you roll it, the drill part moves. The bat cycle included isn’t as nice as the one from the Funhouse set, but still good to have.

Get ready for the biggest, most complex LEGO Technic model ever – the Mobile Crane MK II! Drive this 2,606-piece behemoth of a model into position with the cool 8-wheel steering and rotate the superstructure. Then activate the included LEGO Power Functions motor to extend the outriggers, lower the feet and extend or raise the crane arm up to 77cm into the air. Lower the hook with the working winch and get ready to lift the load! This authentic 2-in-1 model also features 10 wheels, 5 axles and a detailed V8 motor with moving pistons. Rebuilds into a container stacker and truck featuring Power Functions motor-powered extending and raising boom.
It’s interesting though, for example, doing a little research on the Modular Buildings, it looks like the average active selling life per set is about 2+ years. Strange that Market Street’s life was “cut short”. Not sure about the average life for SW, HP or the rest.
The point I was trying to make was the back in the Town Plan era you got more buildings for your money. Today each building is very pricey…. back then you practically got an entire town for the cost of a single building today. Just bad choice of words.
Again, this one looks very simple on the box, but once you’ve tried fiddling around with over 2,500 incredibly similar pieces, you’ll be ripping your hair out. The fact that the cockpit opens, the wings fold up and the cannons are meant to move does not make matters any easier. But wouldn’t a shuttle like this look lovely on your shelf?
Fischertechnik offers a similar pneumatics system for robotic and control technology hobbyists. The Fischertechnik system includes an electrically activated air solenoid, a feature not available in the Lego range.
Even if these ideas here don’t inspire you to begin your own Lego modular creation, they are cool to look at, aren’t they! And hopefully, Lego will continue introducing a new modular building every year so we can all keep building the kits and adding to our fun and realistic looking Lego towns. Enjoy!
As with most other Lego sets it is excellent quality and detail! Took my son about 5-6 days working a few hours each day to complete this set. (Yes, mostly on his own with supervision to make sure parts didn’t get put backwards, which means total rebuild) He Loves all things Lego! He was so proud when it was finished and showed everybody!! There is a lot to this set as it is very large and has lots of working details. Recommend to all Lego fans!!

The Brick Bank also introduced some rare elements such as a metallized-paint gold ingot and coins (to be used with the coin-stacking machine play feature), and used the less-common colors of Sand Blue and Sand Green.
We bought this Lego 4X4 for our Grandson for Christmas last year but bought it AGAIN this year FOR HIM because it was such a BIG HIT!! He Loves this product. We wanted the Limited Edition 4X4 but they were too expensive…
I have the new redesigned Mini Cooper box, bought it a month ago. Had no idea the box had changed. I can imagine we’ll have it available for quite some time. It’s not a set that we should worry about for in the next couple of months…
