TBs TechPool 08 - Vote for the best TECHNIC set in 2008

Now that 2008 is coming to its end, lets see which TECHNIC set does TBs readers chose as their favorite, among those released in this year.

The options are:

8290: Mini Forklift

8291: Dirt Bike

8296: Dune Buggy

8292: Cherry Picker

8294: Excavator

8295: Telescopic Handler

8297: Off-Roader

8293: Power Functions Motor Set

If having more than one of these sets, that you really like and can't decide for, no worries... You can just select as many as you like from the poll.

Guess if we had ran a similar poll the past year, to chose the best TECHNIC set from 2007, it would have been much easier than now with the 2008 sets .

Actually we already know which are the new TECHNIC sets for 1H2009. Lets keep the fingers crossed, for other great and large sets to come in the 2H2009.

See the poll on the right column and... Take your vote!
You may also leave any comments to support your choice, if you have some remarks.

To me, the Excavator is a clear winner.

Of course it has the "cheap shot" of having the much hyped Linear Actuator (even more so because they're in more quantity and in a cheaper set than the only other '08 LA-equipped set), but especially because of its expandability.

I have never seen so many AFOLs tinkering with a set (except maybe the more expensive 8275 Bulldozer), adding more functionality to it; and sparking imagination and problem-solving on many minds.

Plus, it has an advantage over last year's equally-modded Bulldozer: it's much cheaper! ;)

Actually, that's a good point. The most popular models for tinkering I can think of are the 8880 Supercar, the 8421 Mobile Crane, the 8275 Bulldozer, and now, the 8294 Excavator. It's in a league of flagship models at a high-midrange price.

I would be interested to see a comparison between people who 'would like a set' and those 'who have it'. I was very keen to get one of the sets but was very disappointed with it when I got it! In fact I'm tempted to go as far as to rank it amongst the worst sets...

It looks like you guessed my thoughts... ;)
I was already planing to launch a poll, to know which sets have we bought, instead of those that we most like.
Also because you may like a set too much, but don't have the availability to purchase it.

So, I'm also curious about the results.

Poll must be made available, just after next poll of Q4 favorite TechVideos. So probably 2-3 weeks ahead.
