That's a brilliant find - and there's a way to get an even better bargain; if you use the promotional code VCPPC100 you can get £10 off a £100 spend. I just bought two of the supercars (one for me, one to put away for my son) and the Space Shuttle which is available from Boots for a ridiculously low £12.00, making a grand total of £112 (free delivery on orders over £40 too) - I then used the above code to get the total to pay down to just £102 for all three items (two supercars and the shuttle). Nice deal!

Top deal, that's my Christmas present sorted! It's been a while since I've bought a lego supercar, but for £50 I couldn't resist.
#11
I'm 28 and I got one for myself. Can't resist this at £50!!! HOT!!!!
#12
Ha spotted this myself through the shuttle deal, bought it, then came on to post but by then it was already on here. Great deal, cheapest I've ever seen it. voted hot!

Great price, but not gonna buy cos this has lost the charm of the original Technic Lego supercars I have which are just generic parts. Nowadays, these kits all have custom parts which are specifically for this kit. Defeats the object. :(
#14
Ordered and heat added - Thx
#15
Does anyone know if this includes a diff?

I never quite 'got' how a diff worked until I saw a lego one and always fancied getting a kit with one to explain it to others.
(Yes, I know you can buy them on their own on ebay, but where's the fun in that!)

Anything awesome in lego is probably on techbricks including the parts lists ;)

This is an awesome deal, just a shame this only comes with 1 power function unlike the 8043 set i picked up at tesco a few weeks ago for a similar price.

All, I believe this can also be built into a Hot Rod as per this image! I only noticed after looking here to find the instructions and seeing a B-manual

I know what you mean, its a shame as this seems to be the case with a lot of lego these days. Having said that, I'm hugely tempted at this price!!

As a thirty four and three quarters year old boy, I couldn't resist either.
#21
Bought - for my 8 year old, you understand :-)
#22
Ordered & heat added - thanks!
#23
I'm 21 years of age and I recently bought the crane model for around £120 and it was thoroughly enjoyable to put together. Everything works well and the model was well designed. I'm going to purchase this, seems a great deal - HOT!

Forgive me fot asking, but do these build like lego. My 7 year old son is obsessed with legi, but hates meccano. Just trying to figure out if he will like it. Thanks! :)
#27
OOS, phew, glad i bought early!

These do not use the traditional lego bricks. They are more like Meccano than Lego.
#31
as the OP and 41 years of age ,I have owned all technic cars and super cars although not traditional bricks they are great fun to build and customise,not really comparable to meccano.
I could not resist this model at this price
#32
I'd say it's still more akin to lego than meccano - but is a bit more 'technical'. I certainly had Technic sets when I was 7.
#33
50 quid for a Lego car. Errrm ok oO
#34
Just ordered from Boots, literally 2 minutes ago. One must've gone back into stock, because it's now OOS again. I'm almost 31 years old, not entirely sure what the missus is going to say when she catches me playing with it :|

All the big technics cars have a secondary model you can build. The ones I can be turned into a quarter-mile rocket dragster and a jeep with very bouncy suspension, respectively.

Great models.
#36
too late :(
#37
I'd say somewhere in between Lego and meccano. They use pins which snap in and out rather than bolts like meccano, but they use beams rather than bricks, which are more like the meccano plates. It feels like you are playing with Lego as you snap pieces to the pins and then to each other, rather than meccano where you need a screwdriver and spanner.
#38
Ah, yes - looking, back in my day it had a bit more stick-together stuff.

It should all be 'compatible' with normal lego one way or another.
#39
Damn. Cant believe i missed this. Hopefully it comes back in stock at the same price!
#40
in stock again
