Well, I finally got my Cave Crusher. I must say this is my favorite PM vehicle set to date. I love the big old wheels and the interconnecting train like sections. The fact that it's fairly flat is in keeping with mines generally not being to tall in real life.
Great set and now I have a large Red Crystal monster to go with my collection!
Build time was quick, less than an hour and that was with me watching a TV program.
Besides the Red monster the set also comes with two minifigs. My collection of those guys are growing quickly.
I had to get this from eBay because I missed it in stores. It was a Target exclusive. Still after shipping, I only ended up paying $10 more than it retailed for originally. Not to bad considering it was an exclusive that no longer ships.
Here's the set:http://lego.wikia.com/wiki/8708_Cave_Crusher
I'm also currently awaiting the Crystal Sweeper set I won from eBay. I'm hoping it shows up tonight at my PO box.
Once I receive that set, the only set I would need to complete my PM collection is the Titanium Command Rig. That's the largest of the PM sets to date and not one I'm likely to get from eBay for a price I'm willing to pay. Though I keep trying. It retails for $100 and I'm just not into paying that much for LEGOs anymore. So I'm hoping to get lucky at somewhere around half that price. But if I never get it, I won't be too disappointed. I have all the ones I really want right now and will definitely be getting all of the new sets for 2010.
Oh and I found this on the official site and thought it was funny, had to post it for your amusement.http://powerminers.lego.com/en-us/Movie ... -burp.aspx
