Once again I think they are totally ruining the series. In this short time the series has really been run into the ground and now only exists down in the dumps.
Even their lame attempt at being funny by creating a super mini version of the aforementioned Xerion somehow misfires. Even the stunt show combo thing will go down well with kids.
I also like the idea of actually floating boat parts. However, after all those sets clearly aimed at the younger audiences there is this terrible, terrible gap of nothing. On the bright side at least it brings back the yellow no.
Still, none of that can cover up the fact that the set itself is not the most attractive. In fact most of these Technic sets represent what has deterred me from even picking up the hobby for ages — crude, unsophisticated and toy-ish looking models. So where does all of that leave us?
If I were to make it sound positive in a very sarcastic way I would say that I can save lots of money, at least in the price ranges that are attainable for me. Important Note: Download at the end of the article! At long last I managed to finish my free instructions for my octopus MOC. The preview of some random pages should give you an idea what to expect inside the PDF s without actually having to download the whole That should make it easier to make up your mind before burning valuable bandwidth and download quotas on mobile devices.
On that note I also kept things as barebones as I possibly could within the limitations to keep file size down, so you may have to wait a bit e.
As I have hinted at multiple times, this set of instructions contains some alternate build variants. This is meant to help you save a bit of money if you are not able or willing to procure a shed load of extra parts e. Of course you can do your own re-engineering to optimize this further and perhaps if you come up with more efficient alternate designs might be willing to share it. Just get in touch!

Compared to the first wave, the second outing sure feels underwhelming. The latter category is most notably presented by the Newbury Subway Station Point in case: They may be relatively large in terms of area they occupy, but without a wealth of extra parts to build additional attractions and landscapes around them the literally look like someone just dumped some old rusty railway tracks in the middle of nowhere.
The rest is just as unimpressive. The only halfway original set it turns out will be the Hidden Side Portal Not so much because it would be extraordinary in design or construction, but it appears to introduce a new spin on the theme and possibly a new play mechanic for the associated game. For unfathomable reasons LEGO decided that it would be a good idea to bring out more dual sets featuring two cars at the same time and along with the switch from 6 studs wide to 8 studs making the models larger and requiring a few more pieces plus a general price hike this turns what should be good fodder for spontaneous casual into a genuine investment.
We have to see how that works out…. The rest of the parts is not worth writing home about, as the vehicle you are supposed to build from them is literally the most simplistic, most trimmed down version of a four-wheeled vehicle one could imagine.
Not a great look by any stretch of the imagination and certainly nothing particularly space-themed, either. If your kid is anything close to a space nerd like me it will have lots of fun.
Overall this is a nice issue. I just wish it would be richer in the parts department.
Perhaps a reimagining and restart of the series might be worth considering…. On the bright side, the CG renders are a little less creepy this time around, so it seems the artists responsible for this stuff are slowly getting a handle on their deformation rigs. This issue is also extremely scant on activities stuff, so if you were hoping to distract your kids for any thing longer than 5 minutes, that hope gets busted. The puzzles are really solvable by a three-year-old without much effort. Even better yet, though probably total coincidence again, the next issue will focus on cake decoration and include even more decorations, so you could almost do your own version of The Great Bake Off ….
