Lego Technic Space Shuttle - 8480This is the single most complicated set I've ever seen or built. The gear systems are excellent - actually educational. It's big, excellent parts, and an amazing feat of design engineering. Simply the best Technic set ever.

The set isn't being produced any more, and isn't available on the Lego website or in stores. However, they seem to have found a few in a warehouse somewhere and those are available from the Lego Shop at Home 1-800-453-4652 number in Canada and the U.S. US$158 (plus shipping). Ask for set number 8480.

Thanks to the ever-excellent LUGNet for putting the details of this set on the web, including the picture referenced here which is Copyright ©1996 LEGO.
