I shared many videos with you about the LEGO Technic Land Rover Defender already, you saw my detailed building review, the details of the drive train and the one about the cracking noise and the possible fixes. I received hundreds of comments from you and many-many requests for help, hopefully in most of the cases I was able to assist to find the proper solution.
I decided to create a summary and a video about all the potential issues I found during the building process. I’ll also go through the drive train from the wheels to the engine, how to verify your build, and what are the problems that are not really problems. Each section is linked to the proper part of the video, use the summery below to find the section you are looking for:
This Easter is very different from the previous ones, we are advised to stay home, can’t visit our friends and family, so you’ll probably do what I do – spend these days indoors. I wanted to create something that makes this isolation a bit easier, but I did not create building instructions this time since getting LEGO parts might be challenging nowadays.
So this is it, my coloring and activity book! Most of my remote control modifications are waiting there to be colored, and there are a few little games that you can enjoy. The book is not only for kids, I hope everyone will enjoy spending some time with it!
Ladies and Gentlemen, here is the LEGO Technic Fast & Furious car you’ve been waiting for, the 42111 set is Dom’s Dodge Charger! It has 1077 pieces, it can be preordered on lego.com from today for 99,99€ / $99.99 and it’ll be available for purchase elsewhere from the 27th of April 2020.
Here is my detailed preview of the set based on the press photos:
The latest iconic car model added to the LEGO Creator Expert line is the Fiat 500! Fans will enjoy the challenging building experience offered by this model kit based on the Fiat 500F legend from the late ‘60s, and will appreciate all the authentic LEGO brick details, such as the luggage rack with suitcase, detailed interior, and opening roof, doors, hood and tailgate.
The LEGO Powered Up system has great potential but the app has one major flaw – it has zero documentation available. I created a detailed code block guide that has all blocks listed in the current version of the app.
You can access the block guides from the top menu or here as well:
Today is the first day of the Spielwarenmesse 2020 in Germany, and LEGO is holding a press conference right now. Exactly one year ago we saw the announcement of the LEGO Technic 42100 Liebherr R 9800 set in Nuremberg, let’s see what is the surprise for this year!
Just received the news from zusammengebaut.com, the successor of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS and the Bugatti Chiron will be a Lamborghini supercar in 1:8 scale available from the 1st of June!
I managed to test successfully a method to export/import projects in the Powered Up app on Android, thanks to some helpful members from the Powered Up Community Facebook group who suggested the location of the project files on the phone.
It’s weird to say this about a set with less than 500 pieces, but here is the flagship LEGO Technic set of 2020’s first wave, the 42109 Technic App-Controlled Top Gear Rally Car. It is fully remote controlled out of the box which is something we did not see in many years, at least for a non-off-roader car. So how does it perform? Check it out in the video!
LEGO released the 3.0 update of the Powered Up app yesterday. As we were informed previously this is an important update with long awaited features like the multi-hub support or the support for the Technic hub and the L and XL motors. Check out the features and my opinion about the update in the video:
