Mercedes and LEGO have teamed up to create this LEGO Technic Unimog, LEGO's largest and most ambitious Technic vehicle kit with over 2,000 pieces to assemble. Fans looking for a fun new project or hoping to learn the inner workings of this multipurpose vehicle will have the time of their lives putting together this purchasable technical marvel.

LEGO's Technic line has always been a handy tool for teaching up-and-coming engineers, but with the LEGO Technic Unimog, they've really outdone themselves by giving customers a toy with almost as much functionality as the actual vehicle itself. Yes, everything you see on the behemoth of a vehicle is electrically powered and can be fully manipulated by the user.

I may be getting old because back in my time, I was totally happy with my Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle toy being able to throw a basketball.
