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.
A good review, this may be. To find out, read you must. An impressive 16" height and posable head, set 75255-1 Yoda boasts...Okay, I'll stop that now, I promise. A spiritual remake of a 2002 set from the always popular Star Wars theme, this set is surely a crowd pleaser, right?
For me Christmas officially begins with the release of LEGO's annual Winter Village set. I love Christmas and I love LEGO so naturally these things combined are a total win for me. It was actually the Winter Village sets that brought me out of my LEGO dark ages. I hope 2019's addition doesn't let me down.
