    FINALLY!

    http://shop.lego.com/Product/?p=8294

    Along with the cherry picker, and now this, I'm finally seeing my wishes come true about motoristed/pnumatics. :) Although, I'm not sure how "pnumatic" it is, looks good to me anyway. :)

    That's pretty cool.

    Makes me realise and ponder, why havn't lego done a "war" theme like town and castle are? Would have been freaking sweet. Tanks, coppers, jets. They should have done that instead of exoforce and aquaraiders.

    They do have a secret agent range coming soon though.

    I'm still excited about that other set I linked above too. The price is great on it. :)

    Excavator review:
    http://technicbricks.blogspot.com/2008/07/tbs-techreview-03-8294-excavator.html

    On the lego site, there is a Technic designers blog, and they answered a question a while ago.. saying that the new parts would compliment, not replace pnumatics.

    Also.. Lego have always had a policy against realistic war themes, and I don't think they'll be changing that anytime soon.

    besides.. if you want to build tanks/planes/etc, nothing is stopping you and your imagination! ;)

    wild to see that new excavator, especially since I put this together only the other day. It's a set I got nearly 20 years ago, one of the early pneumatic ones.

    I just got a Lego AT-AT :) Haven't built it yet.

    I've got a lot of lego castle stuff, was big into robin hood and stuff when I was younger.

    I have quite a bit of lego and technic (older sets from the 90's) all assembled and in plastic tubs in the shed. Might take them out and take some pictures of them over the weekend.

    Doesn't do much for me, I'd only buy it for parts. But if you collect Ferrari, F!, Cars etc and require it to form a set then yes buy it.

    F1 Ferrari came out in 2 technic versions the cheaper 1:10 and the big boy 1:8
    if you have the 1:10 and want something to sit next to it yes possibly look nice.
    But if you have the big brother 1:8 then no. That big Ferrari looks hot I'd hunt down a Williams model instead.

    Yeh I'm leaving this one on the maybe's list.

    OOOOOOH the Williams F1.
    I came very close to paying AUD$200 for it.
    But I thought better of it and back away from the sale, it was 2nd hand and I just don't want 2nd hand for my collection especially at that price :)

    LOL! This is the same one my brother has!

    Actually, he won it (along with 2 other LEGO sets) on a TV contest.
    (One of those afternoon shows on Ch10 back in the 80s).

    Well I ended up buying this http://shop.lego.com/Product/?p=8294 at myer for $59.

    After a long search, it appeared that noone was going to be selling the motor set here locally, and lego shop wanted $30 to ship it, so I found one on Ebay instead. Cost me about $16 less than the lego shop one all up, and I was lucky I bought it when the $ was at 75 cents. Hopefully it should be here by weeks end, as I'm waiting for it before I build the excavator.
