Hammond has found his level. My son can't get his head out of it. Why won't he leave grown ups alone?

3.0 out of 5 stars It doesn't move!, 1 April 2012
= Durability:2.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: LEGO Technic 8070: Supercar (Toy)
It looks like it will move. The transmission is all there- but it doesn't move! I'm not a mechanic but even I can see that it would take ONE slight alteration to ONE cog and it WOULD move. But, not sure if I mentioned this, it doesn't move. What were they thinking? Looks great BUT IT DOESN'T MOVE. Needs big sign on box 'To avoid disappointing 9 year old son you should be aware that, although this could easily move, we have decided to make it NOT move'. AAAAARGH!

5.0 out of 5 stars Filling a gap, 29 July 2009
Why isn't this basic school reading? If all children started with this, by the time they got to the less thrilling details of science lessons they would realise there is a point to it. Write to somebody! (This counts as my effort).

1.0 out of 5 stars They lie!, 20 Feb. 2009
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Don't listen to the blurb - it is NOT like holding a lightsabre. You can move it up, down, left, right, or forwards. What you will actually do is end up waving the control randomly at the screen with no idea how your movements are connected to the action (which my five year old quite enjoys actually). The technology doesn't exist yet so don't be fooled.
