About LEGO Technic

For some, the clicking of bricks is just not satisfying enough – a LEGO set should work, it should be able to do something. For those who want something more complex than LEGO System, something that leads to a different kind of model, LEGO Technic provides it.

Introduced in 1977 as ‘Technical sets’ before being given the LEGO Technic branding in 1982, those first sets set up the basis for the theme, with special bricks featuring holes that axles and pins could be inserted into. This allowed functions to be included in the vehicle-based sets, such as working steering and moving lift arms. 

Motors were soon introduced into the theme, so that builders did not have to operate all of the functions by hand. This would continue throughout the following decades of LEGO Technic, with motors allowing the models to move realistically.

At the beginning of the 2000s, the style of LEGO Technic started to change. Non-studded elements were the main element used rather than the sets being built from bricks predominantly in sets such as 8466 4×4 Off-Roader. This allowed for curvier, more authentic designs, although ones that were less apparently LEGO models at a glance.

2007 saw the introduction of Power Functions, allowing for remote-controlled Technic vehicles for the first time. 8275 Motorized Bulldozer came with the components included, with other sets including instructions on how to add the motors and sensors to give the vehicle functionality. 

In recent years, the Technic design team has collaborated with several supercar manufacturers in order to provide authentic models of iconic cars. 42056 Porsche 911 GT3 RS and 42083 Bugatti Chiron saw close co-operation between those working on the sets and those who work on the actual cars. There have also been collaborations on other sets including 42043 Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3245, 42078 Mack Anthem and 42063 BMW R 1200 GS Adventure.

The designers have also become more ambitious when it comes to impressive functional models, with power Functions and Powered Up! components allowing for incredibly large sets such as 42055 Bucket Wheel Excavator and 42082 Rough Terrain Crane. 

With LEGO Technic having run for over 40 years, the theme is one of the longest-running in the company’s history. Given the loyal fanbase this complicated of building has, it is likely to keep on driving towards the next milestone.
