Lego – What I Have To Build!

LegoImperialShuttle

Over the last year I have piled up a few boxes of Lego which have been sitting on the floor for about 8 months now. I get annoyed seeing the boxes on the floor but then I realize the time commitment required for me to finish them, and I hate to leaving something unfinished. Still I’m getting more and more anxious to work on these two Lego models first, I do have other one’s as well but these two are the one’s I have to see completed first. I have the space to place them right now, or at least one of them but after that I don’t think I have anymore space to place the other ones. Need to think of a solution, I seriously can’t get enough of Lego.

Lego Technic Unimog

I’m a big fan of the Technic Line from Lego, I usually want to see more vehicles from them. And now they come out with the biggest model yet, the Mercedes Unimog and in real life this is one big and powerful beast. And now this will be available later in the year and will probably take a few weeks to put together. I need to get to work on some of the Lego items that I have laying around but I need dedicated time for that.

The LEGO Technic Unimog U 400 will be available from toy retailers from August on as well as from Mercedes- Benz and it costs about 190 Euros. The impressive vehicle which links a combination of electric drive and pneumatics has been produced in exlusive cooperation with Mercedes-Benz as a true adaptation of the original down to the smallest details. As the world ‘ s most versatile workhorse, the Unimog pushes snow away in winter, mows motorway embankments in summer or helps to construct new roads.

Lego Technic Motorbike

One of the things that I love doing is putting together Lego, for the longest time it is always a pleasure but I never really thought about picking one up until recently. I picked up this simple bike which can be regular street bike or a V-Rod type bike and I went for the V-Rod because it looked cooler.

The key to putting lego together is opening all the bags and putting all the similar pieces together into piles. Make sure its an area that people won’t be touching or moving anything until your done. I always make sure that nothing gets touched or else I might lose a piece that is crucial to the Technic Model.

I decided to dedicate myself to finishing this as soon as possible in an intense time, to finish as fast as possible. After following the instructions for two hours it came together for a very cool Lego Technic Cruiser, and fit very nicely on my bookshelf.

Lego Creations

Any time I pass by any toy store I sort of wander in and take a look around. I always look for the lego section to see what they might have, and there a few times when I’m tempted to pick up one of those more complex models. What amazes me are those people who can create amazing models from their head, I for one can’t build these amazing machines, toys, and models without an instruction booklet, I tried and failed miserably. Some of these creations takes over a thousand pieces and months to put together, and they final model looks easy when you see the picture but you must perfect the skill of building with very little to go on. Check out the link below on Blastr to see more insane creations.

Technic Lego Street Bike

I have had the Technic Lego Motorcycle sitting on the floor in my room for over two months now, I just didn’t get around to it. Until Friday I decided that I have too many boxes in my room and I need to rid of a few, so to get rid of the Technic box I needed to put it together.

I thought its going to be pretty simple, I was expecting a lot of pieces but only two bags were inside with two sets of tires and the manual. When I opened the bags each one had two small bags inside of them not including the bigger parts in the big bags.

When I opened the bag and started going through the pieces I realized that it was going to be a little bit more complex then I expected. I was siting on the floor, manual to my side, camera behind me and music blaring. I felt like a kid sitting on the floor really enjoying putting it together and looking forward to finishing it. At first I was lost but I remembered that I always had a system to putting them together, I opened up all the bags put all the pieces in each bag on the floor together, and bunched up certain parts together. After the first hour I was on a roll and started putting parts together faster, systematic, piece by piece and completing each part then putting it together. But I had to get up and move every 30 minutes, different parts of my body were going numb after some time.

After 3 hours and 10 minutes I finish the Lego Street Bike which resembles the Ducati 999. I think that’s the main reason I got it a while back, because it resembles the 999. It looked really good and I was happy with what I had, but again I didn’t have any good place to place it.

LEGO Technic Street Bike

I have recently gotten the urge to put things together and what better to satisfy that urge then with Lego Technic. I was just think how I’m being childish about this until I came across this beauty of a model, they made a model of the Ducati 749, how appropriate is that. The lines look great on this piece, it seems to have a V4 based on the commentary. Who doesn’t enjoy putting a Lego model together that really functions like this motorcycle.
