Lego Technic 8066 Off-Roader Jeep (SUV) and Dune Buggy – Year 2011

Lego Technic 8066 Off-Roader (also called "SUV" for some reason) is another entry level set with recommended age of 8-14. Simple enough for advanced user and can be easily put together in 30 minutes. Lego Technic 8066 Off-Roader has been released in 2011 as one of ten models scheduled for this year with first sets sold late December 2010.

Lego 8066 contains 141 pieces that can be build into A model Off-Roader Jeep or B model Dune Buggy. One of the things hailed by users is the simplicity of the design and resemblance to actual Jeep. It does have a suspension although only one which works for both front and rear axles.  In Off-Roader the spring is placed underneath the car, for a Dune Buggy it is placed on the top coming from rear spoiler.

The steering in 8066 Buggy is unusual and brilliant as it steers by leaning the vehicle to the right or left and has a quite tight turning radius. The A model Jeep turns using a knob placed on the back of the "cargo" area. Black body parts cover the red subframe parts and gray parts and axles ad more detail.

The wheels of Lego Technic 8066 Off-Roader are big for a small set and very much resemble large heavy-duty truck-like wheels When completed it may not fit in the pocket but sill is portable enough to easily take it out or place on the desktop.

There is not many technical features to twist, pull or turn as you see in bigger models, but that's not the point of entry level sets. Lego makes sure the price of 8066 Off-Roader Technic set is very affordable and  the playability is most certainly there. Give it a try and place your comments below!
