The 42054 Claas Xerion 5000 Trac VC is one of the three new Technic sets released in the second half of 2016. It's quite a large set at just under 2000 parts but still only half the size of the 42055 Bucket Wheel Excavator. The Claas Xerion really stood out to me as a quite unique build.

Back in 2014, I met with LEGO to talk about Rebrickable and throw around some ideas for making something awesome together. The one thing that stood out for them was how Rebrickable highlights the value of alternate builds - i.e. MOCs that can be built from just a single official set. With the Rebrickable Build calculations making these MOCs stand out with 100% matching results, they have proven very popular among users. For the last ~6 months, I have been working closely with a select few Rebrickable designers and a small group within LEGO to build out a new website. Now finally, after 2 years, we have something to show for this effort – LEGO Remake.
The 42053 Volvo EW 160E is one of the three new Technic sets being released in the second half of 2016. It is also based on the pneumatic system v2 which don't come along too often.
The much anticipated (at least by me) set Bucket Wheel Excavator 42055. When this monster was announced, I knew I had to get him. Especially the new gear-part 24121 looks like a great addition to the Technic collection. I’m expecting a new wave of MOC from it. Let’s see if this set can meet up with the/my expectations.

This is a review of the highly anticipated set 42056 Porsche 911 GT3 RS.

The Ghostbusters Headquarters Firehouse is similar to sets that have been submitted to LEGO Ideas, including one by the original Ecto 1 designer Brent Waller. I can't understate how massive this set is! It actually took me something like 2 months to finish building this - mainly because of the need to take photos, and inability to dedicate the many, many hours needed to finish it!
