The Quintessential TexLUG meeting: Brick Fiesta is rapidly approaching!

Working Technic Garbage Truck

Written by GlenW on July 23rd, 2012

Ok, so this is not TexLUG, Its not even AmeriLUG, but it IS very cool Lego…

This Garbage Truck is an engineering marvel, an artistic masterpiece, and all around awesome.  On top of all that, it is a very unique build!  This would however cost a fortune with all the motors, pneumatics, and linear actuators it uses.   

You must also see the video to fully appreciate it.
