I HAVE THIS

LEGO Technic has been the most consistent theme in LEGO, producing sets for over 40 years. The Car Transporter is one of the bigger ones for the year, and posed me a question I have been ignoring since coming back to LEGO as an adult, "do I like building Technic sets?" Some of my fondest childhood memories of LEGO are Technic sets, I loved them. But after my 'dark ages' I never found the love for them again (probably something to do with the more complex looking studless models). I have avoided taking on reviews for Technic sets as I never felt qualified to give an opinion (leaving Tobymac to do all the Technic heavy lifting). But I can't put it off forever. So here's a review of the first major Technic set I have built in over 20 years.
