    Hmm sort of interested in a technic set, crane or truck not really taking my fancy but the porsche does. Could someone that has the porsche post a couple pictures of it ?? Maybe next to some other models to get a better view of it. Would be greatly appreciated. :)

    Edit: Forgot to ask if the prosche is a good build for the coinage on it ??

    It was £160 on amazon last November and assuming elsewhere as amazon prices are driven by price matching.

    Some of the very first Technic sets, classic sets now. I had quite a few back when I was a kid, sadly lost them all. Been trying to get them back for a past few years, takes time to find sets at reasonable prices that haven;t aged badly and are complete.

    Most of my lego is older technic, I've got 2 or 3 8845s and an 850. Never had a 'genuine' 853 but was able to build one from parts that I displayed with one of my 8860s, 8865 and 8448. I've also got a boxed 855 which is quite nice.

    Yeah I had a bunch of 70s/80s original technics including the car chassis, tractor, fork lift, go kart, mobile crane etc. Still have them all apart from maybe the odd piece that might have gone up the hoover :(

    Bought a bulk load of lego some years back when I had kids as I didn't want them messing with my lego :D There was a bunch of original 1974 technic parts (coloured cogs, white axles- see Lego 812) and some strangely coloured slightly warped bricks that I always assumed were counterfeit. Turns out they're 1950s pre-ABS cellulose acetate Lego. Pretty much worthless I believe, but nice to own a bit of history.

    All over that Chiron! Really hope they continue this theme and produce a supercar each year.

    Ive got loads of lego in my loft from when i was a kid, including the space shuttle (8480) and the truck with the extending winch (8460). Its so tempting to get them down lol.

    I believe the Porsche and now the Chiron is part of a new line of Ultimate Technic collector sets, same as Star Wars UCS sets. Which is good for collectors and those interested in high end Technic sets of super cars.

    The 911 was a great build, but IMO didn't quite get the look right and there could easily have been several improvements. I ended up selling mine after a few weeks, disassembled for £90. I might pick up the Chiron but certainly not at RRP!

    I really wanna build the UCS Falcon as I just got one but have nowhere the bugger will fit once built!

    Regarding the Chiron, I hope Lego step-up a bit and actually make it a technical marvel in terms of the set as I was let down by the Porsche. The dodgy gearbox in the wrong order for example.

    I took these pics as much for myself as you lot. I’m moving house in 4 weeks and need a rough idea of have they were displayed once they’re all unpacked and rebuilt

    @Bipolar Kittens - Love this set up. A lot of cool sets in here. Remind me, was the large AT-AT a fan creation rather than an official set?

    That is a mini lego museum.

    How are you going to pack them??? That will be a lot of very big boxes with a lot of bubble wrap.
