As part of my anniversary gift from Katie, I received this bad boy…
…the LEGO Technic Jeep Wrangler (set #42122) Rubicon.
I have always loved and wanted to own a Jeep. But they’re brutally expensive and, as far as I’m concerned, not worth the money. Argue with me. That’s fine.
So this is my way of achieving that dream. I just can’t drive it. Or even sit in it. But I can still play with it. And Nathan can join me.
Here it is…
A working winch!
Did you know LEGO manufactures more tires than any other company in the world?
It’s so purty.
An interesting thing I’d love an answer on if anyone knows is why does LEGO screen print some bricks with patterns, designs, logos, etc., and provide sticker sheets on others? This Jeep has 12 stickers and 7 bricks that have designs printed directly on them.
Printed grill pieces
Stickers for Jeep logo and door handle
Sticker for Rubicon logo
Sticker for engine cover
Sticker for seat covers
Stickers for hood vents
None of the stickers or prints overlap between bricks. So why make us use fallible stickers on some bricks and have really nicely printed-on bricks for others? I’d prefer the durability of printed pieces, honestly. Any insight?
Still a frakkin’ cool set, though.
