Lego Technic system expands on the normal LEGO bricks with a whole range of new bricks that offer new function and building styles. The most significant change from normal LEGO is that single-stud wide bricks (‘beams’) have circular holes through their vertical face, positioned in-between the studs. These holes can accommodate pins, which enable two beams to be held securely together side-by-side, or hinged at an angle. The holes also act as bearings for axles, on which gears and wheels can be attached to create complex mechanisms. Stud-less beams (studs are the bumps traditionally associated with Lego parts), referred to as ‘liftarms’ were first introduced in 1989 and through the 1990s and 2000s and increasing number of liftarm designs have been introduced over time.
In addition to standard gears, some kits include a rack, a clutch and even worm gears and differential gears. The original differential had a 28 tooth bevel gear, designed to be meshed with the 14 tooth bevel gears (replaced by the 12 tooth gears) to give 2:1 reduction. They can also be meshed the newer double bevel gears. It was replaced by a newer design incorporating 16 tooth and 24 tooth gears on opposite sides of the casing. The casing holds three 12 tooth bevel gears inside.
A very small subtheme of Town, Houses incorporated older sets of houses and buildings, like 6592 Vacation Hideaway into a new subtheme. However, the theme was the only 1991 subtheme not to continue another year.
We work out the trending price by crunching the data on the product’s sale price over the last 90 days. New refers to a brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item, while Used refers to an item that has been used previously.
I do like the Modular Buildings and with Pet Shop coming out, I am greatly considering jumping in if the Fire Brigade and Grand Emporium haven’t convinced me. The stalling point of course is budget and price, plus where would I put them for display.
This is a solid set. The camper is 6 studs wide. The directions are straight forward. There is a fair amount of stickers for this set so some younger builders might need some help with application. I like the storage on top of the camper for vests and oars. I for the price this set is almost perfect. My only complaints would be the following:
Lego fans will be ecstatic to know the set measures over 6″ high and 17″ wide, making it great for display while not remaining too large to find a place to build and assemble in your house. The Lego set comes with standard Lego instructions, with one particular improvement: this set also includes a booklet containing information about the historical facts, design, and architecture of this specific building, making it a great set for Lego-enthusiasts, puzzle lovers, and history buffs. The set is incredibly accurate, earning high marks from Lego fans for its focus on accurately recreating and sculpting such an interesting and historical building. The set includes the Capitol’s neoclassical facade, dome, colonnades, north and south wings, steps and lawns. What’s even cooler: if you remove the dome, you can gain access to the rotunda inside the Capitol, featuring columns, eight statue elements, and even a tiled floor.
Using Lego bricks also supports fine-tuned motor functions, hand eye coordination, and creativity, and it allows children and adults alike the opportunity to lose themselves in their own imaginations. This play time is critically important, as we know that a lack of play can lead to developmental issues and have very negative effects on proper brain development.
This is more of a surprise, as we see the Tower Bridge has received a box redesign after five years of availability, and the comparatively much younger Sydney Opera House has not received the updated Creator Expert logo. This indicates two potentially big surprises: The Tower Bridge may have some life left, and the Sydney Opera House could possibly be up for retirement in the near future.
I had hesitated about buying legos from amazon after ordering a couple sets a few years ago and having them arrive with the boxes bashed and loose legos released from their individual bags sliding around inside the actual Danish lego box. But when I saw the Lego Town Hall on sale for $180, I couldn’t resist, as it was #1 on my son’s Christmas list. I was relieved when it arrived completely intact. Perhaps complaints about the need for better packaging to protect the precious legos was taken into account after customers complained, as I ordered several lego items from amazon this Christmas season and they all arrived undamaged. Hopefully, the Jeff Bezos customer service pledge was applied and from now on legos will be shipped with sufficient padding to protect them! My son spent most of Christmas day putting it together! It’s a FANTASTIC set.
Colethegeek…. when Brickworld (Chicago) had their first LEGO convention (2008?) a few years ago (I couldn’t attend because my mother was very ill)… I had one of the attendees ask the question (to Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen and the new LEGO President) about the very poor “System” in LEGO windows at the time… and the reply from them was that the LEGO design team had the same issue with the lack of usable windows…. and that they would be working on a system. So far the 1x2x2 and 1x2x3 flat front windows are the result… along with the back side of those “less than flattering” headlight bricks, which have already been out for many years.
