Descriptions du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

The LEGO® Technic Idea Book: Wheeled Wonders is a collection of hundreds of mechanisms for cars, trucks, motorcycles, and other vehicles that you can build based on their pictures alone. Each project uses color-coded pieces and is photographed from multiple angles, making it easy to see how the models are assembled without the need for step-by-step instructions. Every model illustrates a different principle, concept, or mechanism that will inspire your own original creations. You're encouraged to use these elements as building blocks to create your own masterpieces. The Technic models in Wheeled Wonders spin or move things, drag race, haul heavy gear, bump off walls, wind up and go, and much more. You'll discover how to build differential gears, implement steering and suspension, and design clutch and transmission systems to use in your own vehicles. This visual guide, the second in the three-volume LEGO Technic Idea Book series, is the brainchild of master builder Yoshihito Isogawa of Tokyo, Japan. Each title is filled with photos of Isogawa's unique models, all of which are designed to fire the imaginations of LEGO builders young and old. Imagine. Create. Invent. Now, what will you build? NOTE: The LEGO Technic Idea Book series uses parts from various Technic sets. If you don't have some of the pieces shown in a particular model, experiment by substituting your own parts or visit the No Starch Press website for a list of the special parts used in the book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent livre d'idées légo technique 5 janvier 2013
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Concept de notices légo technique très différentes des notices de boites.
L'idée n'est pas de monter un modèle complexe fini mais de montrer rapidement le concept mécanique, le temps de montage est donc très rapide et ludique.
Le fait que ce soit en anglais n'est pas un problème, il y a très peu de texte et les images sont suffisantes. Il n'y a pas de notice de montage mais ce n'est pas gênant car différentes vues sont montrées et des légos de différentes couleurs sont utilisés.
Ce tome décrit notamment la mécanique automobile avec direction, amortisseur, cardans et bien sur le différentiel, très bien expliqué en image.
Cadeau pour un garcon de 8 ans (ayant déjà monté plusieurs modèles de 10 ans et +).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Thinking in LEGO -- where to find those pesky parts 8 novembre 2010
Par William Pollock - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
There are hundreds of models in these books and, unless you've got a massive storehouse of LEGO Technic parts in your 10,000 square foot basement, you may not have all of the parts you need in order to build a particular model.

We want to help you find those parts. To that end, Yoshihito Isogawa has prepared a hyperlinked list of the more unique parts in the books to help you to find them at the Bricklink website. We can't post a direct link to that list here, but here's how to find it on our website:

(1) Go to the main No Starch Press website
(2) Search for the word "technic"
(3) Click the first search item that comes up ("LEGO Technic Idea Book Complete Set")
(4) When you reach that page, click the link that says "See the parts list for the books," which you'll see just underneath the red text that says "Buy the whole set and save . . ."

or, if you can read between the lines, try:

nostarch dot com /technic

Please remember that these are idea books; buying these books is not like buying a pre-packaged LEGO set. As such, you're encouraged to explore and invent with LEGO. Many of our readers draw considerable inspiration from the pictures of Isogawa's models alone and I hope that you will, too.

Sincerely,

William Pollock, Founder

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Nice For Inspiration But Not Instruction 3 décembre 2010
Par Dan McKinnon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Don't get me wrong, I really like 'The LEGO Technic Idea Book: Wheeled Wonders' but after perusing through it a bunch of times, I just couldn't give this 5 stars. The book is ENTIRELY an inspiration book with pictures of lots of cars that the author has made. The color JUMPS out of the book, the cars are neat, but there is only a MINIMAL amount of instruction on how to make these. So the reader looks at stuff the author makes and can try their best to replicate, but without some more guidance, it's more a coffee table book than anything else. If there were less machines and just a tiny bit of instruction, this would easily be 5 stars. However, 4 stars isn't bad, and it's still a nice pick up for the LEGO enthusiast.

**** RECOMMENDED

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Cookbook vs. Idea Book (And what about LEGO pieces?) 24 juin 2012
Par Laurens Valk - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I've had all three of Isogawa's Technic Idea books for a while now. After reading some of the reviews and comments here, I felt compelled to contribute some information to this discussion. The point I want to make is that these books are *Idea Books*, not *cookbooks*. You would have guessed that from the book title, but reading through the reviews here, it appears that this isn't obvious, so let me explain.

But before I do, in Mr. Isogawa's own words: "This book is full of little seeds for ideas. It is you who will cultivate these seeds so they will grow into wonderful masterpieces." This means that this book is full of ideas, not ready made recipes that you would find in a cookbook. There's no list of ingredients, and also no step-by-step instructions to make everything. If you want full instructions, this may not be the right book for you.

This book has numerous examples that show the essential principles of building LEGO vehicles. It also shows how you can use LEGO motors to make your vehicles move. And here's where "all those expensive rare components" come in. Truth is, you really don't need all these pieces.

The best example is the use of motors. Pages 4-17 show you many working examples of motor powered vehicles. All of these vehicles do the same: move when you switch on the motor, so you really need to build only one of them. Now, all these vehicles illustrated on these pages use *6 different types* of LEGO motors (to be clear, only one motor per vehicle). The author has done this so that literally *anyone with any LEGO motor* can build this little car.

So you really need just one motor. And once you've followed Mr. Isogawa's suggestions on how to mount your particular motor on a (any) LEGO construction, you're ready to add this motor to all of the other special vehicles in this book - even if it doesn't picture your motor. All motors do the same. Just plug and play.

Clearly the same goes for wheels. Every wheel will work. And if your wheels are too big to fit the example car, just make the car bigger. After all, that's the point of this book: inspire you to build your own creations.

While the author has kindly provided a parts list that show the pieces used in this book, I actually do not recommend to buy pieces based on this list. Rather, I would suggest that you buy one of the bigger LEGO Technic Sets, especially one with at least one motor. That's much more pieces for your money, plus you can build an awesome truck or bulldozer when you're done building wheeled wonders.

And instead of going to Bricklink to hunt down rare pieces, search for "Peeron", which is a site that shows which pieces can be found in each LEGO set. Just enter the part number of the LEGO set and find what's in it. You can still buy that great looking truck, but be sure to use this site to check that it includes some gears, wheels and a motor so you're good to go to build the vehicles in this book.

And as with any LEGO related product, a child may need a little guidance. A child won't read this review, but if you read it, just build something together with your kid and show them what I said here. They'll get it, and I'm sure you'll like the LEGO experience too.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Where to find the parts? 28 octobre 2010
Par Min Xie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Overall this is a wonderful series from Mr.Isogawa. All pictures, no text, love that.
The paper and print for this book is top-notch.

Only thing missing is that it does not have the instruction about how to get the required parts.
To sort out the part list and order them one by one from LEGO will cost a lot of time.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 For the LEGO car builder... 12 octobre 2010
Par Joseph Meno - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Some of the most sought after LEGO sets from the past include the Technic supercars. Built to a larger scale than the usual LEGO sets, these models had many of the same functions of a real sports car, such as steering, suspension and transmissions. However, building a model of that complexity without having built one of the sets has been a major challenge. As a result, there are only a few fan supercars out there.

The LEGO Technic Idea Book: Wheeled Wonders is a book that shows builders how to make such features in LEGO fashion. Using photos and some simple diagramming, the book shows in a very clear way how to make motorized models that can drive, steer, and do other things, thanks to some gearing. Different motors are used in the models, so adapting from one type to another is not difficult.

What's amazing is that some of the models are wonderfully elegant. Using basic parts, a car can be built that hugs table edges. No computers needed! Another model uses a polarity switch for a car that reverses when it hits a wall. Ingenious solutions are throughout the book and provide inspiration for both the beginning builder and experienced Technic builder.

This is the second of the LEGO Technic Idea book trilogy, so this is only about wheeled models. Butas the others, this is a good reference and inspiration for building things with movement. Highly recommended for any builder!
