I have had a long line of Technic models but this is by far the best of them all!

I brought this because I wanted a challenge and to have a functional, usable model at the end and it definitely delivered on both fronts!

The build, or builds in my case, were challenging. It was not monotonous like some builds and unlike other builds it required all of my concentration for the full 7 hours construction time. Despite this I made a mistake and missed a gear in the main gear box and had to dismantle about a third of the model. It is difficult in some places but given you have a fair amount of patience you will find it rewarding and stimulating. And after the 7 hours construction (10 after my slip up!) the end result is brilliant!

For those of you who have built the Technic Bulldozer you may have found it lacked push and manoeuvrability even of short carpet and grounded out on fairly shallow inclines which made using it frustrating. The Excavator has romped across everything, within reason, I have put in its path. It does struggle with steep steps because of the weight of all 4 motors, the IR recievers and the battery box all at one end but with some nifty driving you can get it to do some cool things!

You can also get the arm to do some complex movements to. I have been driving it around for maybe 5 hours total and once you get the hang of the controls I have got it moving like the real thing.

This is without a doubt the best Technic for a long time. It says 12-16 on the box but when your 50 year old dad says he is jealous that its not him building it you know its worth the money!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Length: 3:00 Mins
Released in August 2010, Lego's mechanical engineering offshoot - Technic, have devised another truly impressive construction. This time in the form of a motorized excavator (it can also be made into a Tracked Loader - so two toys in one!).

The box contents add up to easily over a thousand pieces, which presents a mammoth task when it comes to building the beast for the first time (see the first part of the video attached). Three instruction manuals totalling an impressive 209 pages are used to detail how to build this veritable goliath of a project. And to be honest, the instruction manuals do a fantastic job. The diagrams are clear and concise throughout, even when the tasks become quite complicated with the sheer volume of complex parts involved. If the instructions are detailed well, half the fun of the toy can be found in the construction. If delivered poorly, frustration can set in, making the construction process a long and arduous chore. However, Lego have done a top notch job in delivering some very clear and easy to follow instructions, which I would agree would be suitable for anyone over the age of 12 to follow.

The end result is an impressive and fully manoeuvrable excavator. The controllers take a little getting used to (the video footage included was after twenty odd minutes of practice). Although the machine is quite slow moving around, half the joy of playing with it is doing the movements precisely, so speed is not really a major factor here.

The controls include a function that flips between moving the excavator around and then to controlling the giant digger arm. This function to switch between the two does seem a little `clunky', but this is no great hardship.

Construction time, we're looking at between five and eight hours.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
A word of warning, this kit is not suitable for younger children or ham fisted adults. Expert teenage builders would probably throw it together in a matter of hours, it took me nine days of evening work. It became a matter of principle to finish it! I was on a tight deadline as my son kept asking me if it was going to be finished before we went to visit Legoland. The pressure I was under was immense.

It is without doubt the most complex piece of Lego engineering I have ever seen, it would probably be easier to build the real thing. There are three instruction booklets that must be followed to the letter, there is no way it can be built without reference to these books. Each stage must be completed before moving on. Each stage must be completely correct so quality control checks must be put in place. Do not leave it to your wife or children to check for you, this statement will become apparent later. Sufficient space must be provided for the build as there are so many parts and the thing just keeps growing. It is big.

Once the build is complete you will have to invest heavily in 12 batteries to provide the power to test your building skills. The end result is superb, the quality of the parts impressive. The satisfaction gained from the build would be great if I could just get over the exhaustion.

Finally the day arrived for the test, batteries installed checks completed. Battery pack activated, remote controllers x2 activated, arm motors working, rotation motors working, bucket motors working, left caterpillar tracks working, right caterpillar track JAMMED!!!!!!!! Voice behind me; `Daddy, what about this cog?' says young son holding up a small grey cog wheel! Nooooooooooooooooooo!

There is also the option of downloading the instructions for a second build that can be made.

Please do not let my son see this!

If you have a budding engineer in the family this is a must buy must have. It really is that good.
