Its slightly-less-complicated, brick-based older brother might get most of the LEGO love, but the Technic line of LEGOs opens up a whole new world of possibilities filled with differentials, pulleys, electric motors, suspensions, linkages and complex gearing systems. Those types of component parts become essential when expert Technic builders are creating things like supercars, construction equipment, monster trucks and watercraft. Those creations are the focus of Incredible LEGO Technic, Pawel “Sariel” Kmiec’s compendium of the world’s best fan-created LEGO Technic models. In addition to all of the cool models, the book includes design notes and breakaway views of all of the mechanisms contained within. It’s plastic engineering at its finest.

Moon-Puzzle-IF2

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
