That is a very interesting set. Love the old technic figures! They need to bring those back so badly!

We have those Build-a-Guys construction things. Such as the speeder bike with scout Trooper. Be neat if larger Technic had a constraction figure, or part of of one, with some sets. Though it is cool how even a System minifig looks great stuffed into the controls of big digging machines.

I have this. I didn't get what is it, so 99% of time it was built as model 2.

This was called the Warthog in the UK. I had it, I loved it, and looking back at it, I have no idea what the hell was going on. Rule of Cool, I guess. Those treads were the best thing.

I didn't know Technic had minifigures, learned something new today.

When I saw this set, I couldn't figure out why the body wasn't attached to the chassis, but it's supposed to fly I guess?

Model looks good. It has a technic figure on the plus side. But it's not very technic, is it?

An odd duck, this one. Still, if it were full size, i can imagine it would be a fun off-road “toy”.
