    Wow. Thing looks amazing. Any LEGO fans in here? I've seen people build very complex machinery with LEGO (clocks, diferential engines, adding machines, RAM, gearboxs, sorting machines, etc…) This set opens the door to many new complex possibilities. ^_^ I hope it will be possible to add more servos individually.

    damn, lego has come a long way since my day...

    I'm kinda nostaligic for the simplicity of a just a bunch of pieces of plastic and a kid's imagination...

    This sounds expensive :(

    But I'd love to have one.

    I'm waiting for one or both of my girls (3 and 1 yr olds) to get old enough to use this - we can then bond (even more than we're doing now) by building all kinds of geeky robots. In 7 or 8 years, this will be tremendous.

    But for some reason, my wife thinks I just want it for myself.

    Heh heh - I was about to say the same thing. I always loved the normal blocks.

    My brother, however, would love this - he was always a Space lego kinda guy. :D

    It wouldn't shock me if I was to end up buying this in the near future. My roommates and I would have a great time building machines together. I grew up playing with Legos, always liked the Technics the most, maybe this is why I have become an engineer. :)
