Now this is one of the coolest Lego projects I have ever seen.

Nice sculpture. I haven't seen one as impressive since someone made both Titanic and Olympic.

I don't know but I'm the type of person that believes: "If you want something done right, you gotta do it yourself". So much can go wrong that I'd rather take it there personally. Then any claims I have are my own fault.

I miss playing with Legos. They don't have too many good ones online, though, and no good ones in stores here, so I don't get to play with 'em anymore... :(

Agreed. I loved the semi-truck I made that had a knob above the cab that let you turn the wheels. Fun stuff.

Haha. The best I managed was when me and my Dad modified this helicopter and added an electirc motor for the rotors. That thing was lethal!

I had this police boat I made years ago...Then one day I decided to take it apart (don't ask me why), and could never figure out how to put it back together. I think I still might have my Legos somewhere around here (as well as my Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars)...but I don't know where they went. They need to make big sets for adults... :mrgreen:
