Pass. I've only been into Technic for about 18 months - I'm still getting used to the idea that it used to have studs!!
Much to learn this young padawan still has. Looking forward to the review.
The flex tubing was commonly used for aesthetics for example in #8437 Future Car, but was superseded in 1999 I think it was by the flexible parts used in that recovery truck.
To answer my own question about Technic models, it seems its last use for control was in 2000, in #8457 Power Puller, if we discount the Star Wars Technic models.
@paul_merton, I'll post an article about an early example later today.
The 7471 Mars Exploration Rover came out in 2003 and is build almost entirely from technic parts...
Or when you say "Movement" are you talking about something completely different than I am thinking..?
This subject had come up at Eurobricks before, what would you consider the #8653 Enzo, #8145 599 GTB, and some of the other "Racers" sets like the #8682 Nitro Intimidator, #8146 Muscle, and #8649 Menace..? I know they say "Racers" on the box, but so do some minifigure sets....
Even the #8461 Williams set says it... And that is pretty much a clone of the #8458 Technic Silver Champion...
