When Was LEGO Technic Invented?

Technic LEGO was invented in 1977, at which time it was called the Expert Builder series. Made for people of all ages (adults, teens, and kids alike), the aim of the theme — provided with its new name in 1982 — was to give collectors the chance to peek under the bonnet of different vehicles and gain an insight into the mechanics of engineering. To this end, each product contained numerous parts: beams, axles, gear wheels, pins, and electrical motors. This meant that they not only gave the appearance of being great display pieces but also mimicked the internal capabilities of the real-life machines on which they were based.

The line having existed for many years, The LEGO Group has evolved it to adopt the use of ‘studless construction,’ which utilises pins and beams rather than the traditional bricks. Even so, they are entirely compatible with normal LEGO. You may, however, notice that the price is occasionally more expensive than other themes, but this coincides with the increased functionality provided by the internal mechanisms of the products and, as we will later discuss, the compatibility with Control+.

Vehicles & Robots

In this line, you will find products that come in all shapes and sizes. There are LEGO Technic cars (including Lamborghini, McLaren, Porsche, Ferrari, Bugatti, Jeep, Ducati, Ford, Volvo, BMW, and Mercedes), cranes, trucks (including Land Rover, tow trucks, and monster trucks), bulldozers, diggers, motorbikes, tractors, helicopters, planes, boats (including the hovercraft and the catamaran), lorries, buggies (designed for off-roading), and stunt racers.

In addition to vehicles found in the real world, the line also comprises several products based on popular movies and TV series. Examples include the likes of Dom’s Dodge Charger (from Fast & Furious), R2-D2 (from Star Wars), and the Batmobile (from the Batman franchise). If that weren’t exciting enough, the theme offers robots and Technic-inspired advent calendars.

What Are the Best LEGO Technic Sets?

Gain some altitude with the two-in-one Race Plane, which can be reassembled into a jet aeroplane to provide hours of additional fun at no extra cost. Featuring a spinning propeller, this product allows fans of all ages to enact their pilot fantasies.

If you prefer ocean territory, the Rescue Hovercraft allows you to embark on missions to rescue those caught between the waves. For maximum realism, this boat replica uses concealed wheels to make it seem as though it’s hovering. Better yet, the Rescue Hovercraft also turns into the Twin-Engine Aircraft, with moving rudders and ailerons that give you the means to take to the sky in one seamless motion.

Fancy yourself a landlubber? Ride through rough terrain with the Land Rover Defender, the ultimate four-by-four off-roader. This classic British automobile was introduced to the world in the ‘40s, ready to accept any challenge thanks to its impressive resilience and engine power. For car enthusiasts, the Land Rover Defender is a must-have addition to your collection, boasting a realistic interior, authentic paint application, and life-like parts (including a six-cylinder engine and four-speed sequential gear box).

Is LEGO Technic Remote Control?

One commonly asked question pertains to whether LEGO Technic sets can move. The simple answer is yes. For those who enjoy modern technology, there are a variety of LEGO Technic sets with remote-control capabilities, and this is accomplished through the use of an application known as Control+. Downloadable on any smart device, this high-tech app allows you to move your fully assembled kits via their electronic parts. What’s more is that this multi-function control is supplemented by authentic vehicle sounds, challenges and achievements, automation, and live date feedback from the model.
