Decided on the Sian in the end which arrived today. Not opened it yet but the packaging is very nicely done and thankfully no damage in transit. Really looking forward to building this one. I also took a punt on a clone GT3 RS from Yourwobb for £70 delivered. I will probably wait and build that first when it arrives in a couple of weeks.

Anyone else - or just me?
Was that with Yourwobb? My PayPal payment went through okay on a GT3 RS and my account is showing order is placed awaiting shipment.

Is that the LEGO or Lepin version?

Probably Lego as Lepin stuff doesn't tend to come in printed boxes.

Yes, the genuine technic Sian from Amazon. This is the GT3 I've ordered from Yourwobb at £70. It's branded King.

The unboxing off the Sian is quite an event. Let us know if there are colour issues.... a lot of the first editions suffered.

A bit of research says King is actually Lepin re-branded.

Top Gear rally car built.

Un-numbered bags are a pet hate of mine.



It was a quite boring build & had I paid in excess of £100.00 for the kit I would have been very disappointed however I didn’t so I’m not.



The remote control via the iPad is, on the other hand, great fun. Scared the crap out of the dog!!!

I have this and run the app on my phone, however it constantly crashes which is very annoying as you have to restart the app, go to the car, press the button, reconnect the car, wait for it to load up etc.

Yup - Yourwobb. Have never had a PayPal transaction declined in this manner? The only other thing I can think of is that I was ordering a 'Lego' gun replica (my son is an avid airsofter) - so maybe related to the products themselves?

42121 done.






Quite a good little build - the bucket also works & you are supplied with pieces too simulate rubble etc.

What is it with Amazon Lego pricing?? Luckily I bought the Ferrari 488 yesterday for £104. Looked later and it had gone up to £165. Prices seem to fluctuate by the hour.
