Best Lego Technic Sets for Adults 2018
In this article I’m going to list and review the top 5 Lego Technic sets for adults that you can buy in 2018 (the chosen sets are based on my personal opinions). I will just briefly review my choice of the top 5 sets. I have selected larger sets that contain more pieces. I have excluded cheaper small sets from this list. If you are looking for something cheaper and smaller e.g. for your son, check my other article: Lego Technic sets with under 300 parts. So now let’s continue to my reviews.
Lego Technic 42056 Porsche 911 GT3 RS
I’m starting off my list with the most popular Lego Technic set of the year 2016, the Porsche 911 GT3 RS set. It is also my favorite Lego set from this list and the largest one as well (actually it has 2,704 pieces). This is a really exclusive set created with a Porsche license. It features a really nice Porsche-branded packaging. You can see more photos of this model (of the packaging as well) in my complete review of this model that you will find here: Lego Technic Porsche 42056 Review.
Lego Technic 42043 Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3245
This is a Mercedes-Benz-licensed Lego Technic set from 2015. It contains 2,793 pieces. It features an advanced pneumatic system. The model features include automated crane arm and grabber. It also has a fully independent suspension and a 6-cylinder engine that has working pistons. The dimensions of this set are 21 x 5 x 12 inches (54 x 14 x 31 cm). The B model that can be build from this set is Mercedes-Benz Articulated Construction Truck. Overall, this is a really nice set and if you like trucks, this is an ideal set for you. I personally prefer supercars to trucks, but even despite that I really like this set, too.
Lego Technic 42006 Excavator
This one is the oldest set in my list, as it is from the year 2013. But even thought that, it is still a neat set. It contains 720 pieces, out of which most are yellow and black. The model features a 4-prong grabber that works, moving tracks, extending arm and rotating superstructure. It can be motorized with the 8293 Lego Power Functions Motor set. The dimensions of the excavator are 15 x 5 x 13 inches (40 x 15 x 35 cm). And the alternative model that you can build with this set is a Tracked Tractor.
Lego Technic 42066 Air Race Jet
This set is the newest one from my list (together with the set mentioned below). It is actually a 2017 set. It contains 1,151 pieces. Most of the pieces are of the blue and black color. The cockpit of this jet can be opened, as well as the wings’ flaps can be moved. I don’t have any more details about this set, as it is a new model. Nevertheless, it is a really nice set and if you like aeroplanes or fighters, this is an ideal set for you.
Lego Technic 42063 BMW R 1200 GS Adventure
Last but not least, I’d like to introduce here a BMW motorbike Lego set. This is another 2017 set (like the set mentioned above is as well). It contains 603 pieces and most of them are black, gray and blue. This Lego set is licensed by the BMW company. The alternative model of this set is a Future Bike Concept. I actually got this set as a Christmas present and really enjoyed building it.
