WAY overpriced for what you get, like most LEGO products.
Pat McMahon
The battery pack is nice, and I like that it lights up when the power's on.
My son is really into LEGOS and likes to build his own creations.

For $30 you get an engine, battery pack, lights, and switch which is very cool. Unfortunately if you don't have spare Lego technic pieces and don't quite know how to apply the motor to create a functioning machine, than it can be a let down. I got this for my six year old son who can mostly do every Star Wars Lego kit he's come across by himself. One of the recent ones was the motorized AT-AT #10178 which has the same motor and battery pack. From that kit we both got an introduction on how this motor could be applied.

I got this Power kit knowing I'd likely have to put something together for him. You'll gain a greater appreciation for what your car's transmission does after playing with this kit. I used the following two Lego sets that we already had to put together a functioning car:

1. Lego Crazyaction Contraptions. This is more of a book with a small collection of gears and technic pieces you can build hand and rubber band powered machines with.

2. Lego Creator Cool Convertible #4993. Fortunately my son had recently crashed this car so that only the chassis was left intact with the axles and wheels.

By tinkering around I was able to mount the engine and battery pack onto the chassis. By playing around with different sized gears I was able to get that engine to drive the wheels. My son and I loved watching our electric car run for the first time. He took over and mounted the lights and a stick shift. You can than build a custom body over your engine and chassis. Next project is trying to figure out how to build a two speed transmission. So you can see how fun and education this power kit can be if you have the right parts to go with it. If you have a lego store nearby, than check to see if they have loose technic pieces available. We just went to legoland and I scooped a bag full of gears and other hard to find loose parts for only $8. For the price this really is a 5 star kit.

The Power Functions kit #8293 is a must have for the 8294 Excavator. The kit transforms the excavator into a real scale functioning excavator (I own real heavy equipment myself), which can actually dig dry sand, sifted loam, and we attached a small jewelry chain to it and it can lift things like Transfomers Bumblebee and some surprisingly heavy objects just like a real excavator does! So dont hesitate to get one of these. The motor is tiny, but is surprisingly powerful and also this kit has a nice quality switch that replicates a real hydraulic lever and also comes with accessory LED lights which snap right on easily and look sano. The Design of the battery box and the excavator is well done, it mounts underneath the tracked undercarriage and it lowers the center of gravity of the excavator, which increases its stability. Expensive, but worth the dough.

I gave it 3* to get your attention, I really don't like seeing folks being fleeced by unscrupulous sellers…

THE RRP of this set is $29.99. As the title says "BEWARE" because when AMAZON have it in stock their price is usually a little less!

Now when AMAZON are out of stock - the sharks come out - these are Market Place sellers that deliberately do this. At time of writing it is being sold at +50% OVER RRP!!!

Wait till AMAZON get in stock again, these "sharks" use "fulfilled by AMAZON" to fool you.

This is a great product (definitely 5*) good value (at RRP) and can be used to add power functions EASILY to any LEGO set that says you CAN add power functions, those sets usually have instructions on "how to" in the book you got with the set - if they don't then go to LEGO website and search by set number for instructions, which you can download too!

You can also add power functions to other sets but then you are on your own :: YOU need to figure it out, or go to one of many forums devoted to LEGO products.

I hope that helps a few save some money PLEASE vote up to get attention of as many as possible!

I bought this Lego Power Function Accessory set from Amazon in Aug'09 for my 7 year old son. Like most kids my son loves Legos. He took a Lego class over the summer where they learned to build with motors and gears so I've been adding those types of Legos to his collection in case he wants to be a budding engineer. There didn't seem to be alot of motor options for purchase so I ended up buying this set.

In a nutshell, my son did like this Accessory set until it the motor stopped working 4 days after purchase. Not sure why the motor stopped working, I haven't fiddled with it yet other than making sure it wasn't dead batteries.

What I did not like about this set:
-Battery Pack. I thought the battery pack was ridiculously big and heavy...who needs 4 AA batteries to power a small Lego motor? The battery pack is so heavy and the connection cord to the actual motor so short that it is very cumbersome to find a way to attach this battery pack to your Lego creation. I would like to see at least a separate option for smaller battery pack (such as 2 AAA) in the event someone only wants to power a small Lego car and not an actual life-size car.
-Motor durability. Mine broke after 4 days of light use. It was not dead batteries because I tried a fresh set of batteries and still no luck.

I do like the concept of kids taking their Legos to the next level by adding motors and gears. Would I buy this product again? The answer is no if I could find an alternative that better met my needs (smaller battery pack, more durable, etc).

I hope you found my review helpful.
