What is my LEGO collection worth? I guess that question has bothered most of us, at some time or other, and it is not easy to answer it. LEGO has many different values, depending on age, condition, and most importantly, the type, being either individual part or complete set. How to determine those values, and what Rebrickable has to offer in assistance, that is the main subject of this basic review of the most simple of LEGO packages; the humble and underestimated polybag.
In 2017, LEGO introduced the PoweredUp system, as a successor of the standard InfraRed (IR) + Power Functions system. It uses BlueTooth as a connection, making it much more expandable compared to the limited IR, that’s limited to 8 channels.

This final LEGO produced version looks fairly different to the original fan-designer's model, so let's take a look at how it turned out.
If you are a LEGO Technic fan, and perhaps, even if you are not, you must have noticed the incredible media campaign surrounding the introduction, on June 1st, 2018, of LEGO's latest and largest super car, Technic set 42083, the Bugatti Chiron. In the six weeks since that introduction, I have read or watched fifty or more reviews of this super set, and almost all of them, I am sorry to say, got it wrong. They review this set as if it were a regular Technic set; in other words, you build the set as fast as you can, and then you evaluate how good it looks, how good it functions, and how good it plays.
The LEGO 10261 Roller Coaster is the latest model in the Creator Expert line, and comes in at a huge 4124 parts. But what really makes it stand out is its physical dimensions - this is a massive display piece and when combined with some motorisation it really draws a crowd. But it is any good?
