See How LEGO Built A Life Size, Working LEGO Chiron

LEGO pulled of the seemingly impossible and made a life size LEGO Chiron entirely out of Technic elements. They then went a step further and actually made it driveable using nothing but Power Functions motors.

Video of the car taking it’s first drive has been everywhere over the weekend but LEGO have also released this look at how the model came to be. It’s a fantastic behind the scenes look at the complexities of making the Chiron.

The video ends with this list of amazing stats.

RC Tracked Racer Challenge

RC Tracked Racer 42065 Thumb

Over the last two weeks I’ve had a chance to do something that I don’t often get to do – I took a completed set and actually played with it. The RC Tracked Racer is my first Technic set and it just happens to be a set with power functions, meaning that there is lots to do with it once the build is finished.

To see how the Tracked Racer performed as an RC toy I put it through a series of challenges. Note that these tests were performed on a closed circuit at busy office building and nearby park by a professional stunt driver a LEGO fan. In all seriousness though, some of these tests might damage your set, so I don’t particularly recommend them.
