TechnicBRICKs turns 7

Yeah, TBs makes 7 years of existence!

This year I'm not in the mood for statistics... I've been totally immersed building the Ultimate 8043 from Jurgen Krooshoop, for an event of my LUG next weekend (Braga BRInCKa 2014, LEGO Fan Event). We will have a surprise in the event and this was the model chosen for the show.

Hence we go direct for the cake, because time is getting scarce here. And what a cake this time!
So big we need a couple of mobile cranes to move it....

Yet another nice render from Alexandre to celebrate the occasion, and this time I bet he got inspiration from a Technic diorama I prepared for the previous PLUG public event.

I guess the cake won't last for too long, so we will with another one to celebrate the 8th anniversary nest year.

Designer's take on 42029 Customized Truck

Milan Reindl, LEGO Technic Designer has made several small videos talking about the 2H 2014 models.
The first ones were not available at LEGO's YouTube channel and much difficult to retrieve from LEGO website. It is not the first time we complained about this here at TBs and it seems like someone whispered the guys abut it...
The video for the last model (42029 Customized Pick Up Truck) was meanwhile released and also made available at YouTube. So here it is for the records.

The videos are getting better as we get a new one, and they basically cover the model functions.
I'd prefer these to include also some details by the designer, regarding the development process, certain options, new parts design (when applicable). A bit like we tried to do with the TBs TechTalk series in the past.

Week TechVideo, 2014 #40 - Palla

Daniele Benedettelli created a LEGO Rolling Ball, made of Technic elements.
It is aimed to be a project for LEGO Ideas but at the moment it is still not available to support. Likely waiting for moderation by LEGO Ideas team.

Take a look at Daniele's video demoing his most recent toy.

Would you like to play?


Please avoid sending requests to post specific models on this TBs section.

We understand some of you would enjoy to see your creations featured here, but please understand that because only one video gets highlighted per week, it is impossible to accommodate all the great MOCs continuously build by the Technic builders out there. They simply won't fit all and that's also not the purpose of this blog (see the header statement).

Many of your MOCs are scanned anyway and listed for later publication when they do not fit immediately. However some remain in the backlog queue just for too long and eventually loose the relevance or the publication opportunity window. As a rule of thumb, we also avoid publishing MOCs that have been featured by their authors or other fans at some other great web places dedicated to the Technic community out there. It doesn't mean that occasionally some won't get published here anyway.

Thanks for your understanding!

This project is mean available at LEGO Ideas website for you to go there and leave your support!

Without further ado, here they are. (click the title to see the full post)
