I think that's for little kids. Because the form specifically asks for a parent or gaurdians signature too.

But I could be mistaken. Either way, I'm gonna try it just to see what happens.

Could it be that they only expect kids to be playing with legos? j/k

They have pink ones.

perhaps the pink ones weren't available in the sizes he needed or he didn't know about bricklink.

still looks like it was hard work.

Unfortunately you can't purchase those. I believe those are custom kits based on other f1 model cars that were released

But damn, those look freakin good!

The new F1 car is pretty good, did you see that one?

Damn, I've got dual 21 LCDs at work and these pics still make the browser scroll off of one screen.



Next time I have pics off my 5MP camera taken at the highest size & qaulity setting, I'm just host them without Photochopping them first.

I just post whatever I find. Most of the guys on BrickShelf don't resize any of their images and simply edit the img tag to be smaller.

Well, judging from the size of Anil's pictures, I'd say 1/1 scale.

hmmm well being that their custom ones, but looks like they are based on other models, I'd say they are 1:8

since they are somewhat similar to the new one:



And to the older ones:

I dunno...what counts as vintage? Most of them are from 15 years ago or so when I was a kid.

I opened the crate just to look around and ended up laying on the floor for an hour playing with them...

New Toys

There are 20 Mobile Cranes in total in the pic, however 2 of them aren't mine. Total Value ~$3K I didn't pay anywhere near that amount for them though.







If anyone wants one they are $80 bucks a peice (regularly $150) at The LEGO Store. Get them while you can. They have been discontinued. Whatever is out there, is all there is from what I've heard. These are the ones that come with the motor set too! The motor set is sold separetly for $30!
