I started my Lego adult path with the Mk2 crane, and now Lego has a new crane. This one is bigger, meaner, in some aspects, but hopefully better as well. Bigger wheels, but half of them, red instead of yellow, broader, and double crane boon instead of a triple one, so a different set of compromises. How did it go?
I always was a big fan of Lego during my teens, especially the Technic ones. The objects were quite close to reality, pumps, motors, real fun. I stopped playing with them around 15 years ago, but I still remember those times when I built cars, trucks and when I dreamed of having the (now outdated) expensive drawing machine.
Recently, I decided to get a new one. The reason was that I actually found one box that reminded me of my youth boxes, so why not? Contrary to simpler boxes, this one seemed the most complex and engineered one.
This year, Lego published a set based on the Bugatti Chiron, one of the craziest cars, and built near my home town. It’s the second set in the Technic car collection series, and contrary to the Porsche, the color is inspired by a gorgeous real life car (I don’t think that the real Porsche exists…).
