TECHNICOPEDIA


Blackbird's (as he calls himself) initiated a website project, fully dedicated to all TECHNIC sets, LEGO have ever released.
This intends to be a reference repository of information, with technical descriptions and pictures of each TECHNIC set, along with an historical perspective.
It is well organized and every set can be found, indexed by set number, category or year in which it was released.
For each set you will be able to find a description of features, photos and animations in some cases.

Despite started, there is a long way for completion that Blackbird is running alone. At the moment, work is done for sets released until 1980 and almost 200 sets to go, that we will certainly be eagerly waiting for.

Keep the good work, Blackbird!

Take a look at his TECHNIC sets collection. I have many TECHNIC sets, all the biggest ones and those I fell to be the most important/representative, but this guy seems to have even more!...

Wow, that site already has enough content to entertain for hours and hours!
I have only begun to scratch its surface, and I was about to mention the lack of one of the bulldozer models, when I saw that the model I was thinking about was actually the 856 with a different blade... Anyway, the 8020 Universal Set has instructions for a bulldozer, and I don't know if the alternate model of the 8272 Snowmobile counts as a model.
I already contacted Blakbird (whose name in the site logo I initially read as "Blahbird"! LOL!) about this.

I've also exchanged some information with Blackbird about his new site and missing sets, at Eurobricks Forum.

Discuss here:

Has Technicopedia been taken down? I can't access the website, I keep getting "Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /technic/index.html on this server.

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."

I'd love to see the website!

I remember to read at EB, that Eric would make some changes to the website.

Maybe you have been caught, just in the middle!?
