Legendary 8854 LEGO Technic Power Crane - about Dr. Jey first mission :-)

May 04, 2017 2 Comments A+ a-


It's been some time since I've told you about the old LEGO Technic sets that I bought from my friend from Germany - Klaus Schnaible, who is a big fan of LEGO.
Some of the sets that I bought have been already broken into pieces, washed from dust and are currently waiting in the corner of our flat to be build again and displayed in our living room. One of such a set is a legendary set 8854 Power Crane released in 1989.
Here are a few pictures of this old beautiful set taken during the examination of the Power Crane by Dr. Jey and his four legged assistant, experts on restoration of old LEGO sets. :-)

Dr. Jey thoroughly examined the patient condition and recommended to break the set into pieces and then well clean it from the dust.

Each brick was carefully cleaned by brush.

Dr. Jey's assistant is especially strong in finding bricks that are missing in the set and identifying bricks that need to be repaired or replaced.

Guess how many bricks out of total 516 pieces were missing ? Only 7 small Technic not rare pieces ! :-) That's a great result.
Dr. Jey made his work well ! Now it's up to me to order missing pieces from Bricklink and build the Power Crane again and fully test the potential of this cool set.

What do you think about this old set ? Are old LEGO Technic sets something that you find interesting and would like to build it by yourself ?

I will be very happy if you let me know in comments below.

One advise for Doctor Jay 😀
He could use the 42511 skateboard when examining the chassis 😉
I think that this set made me talk to my parents​ about Lego technic and its pneumatic system. In few years I ended up with the yellow excavator.
Lego technic, that's my whole teenage!

Great idea with the skateboard, Tom ! :-) It will certainly be much more comfortable for Dr. Jey. Can't wait to tell him about it ! :-)
Yes, LEGO Technic is a great line. It's cool that you can have a lot of fun with these sets that are older than 25 years !
