I don’t know about you, but I loved playing with LEGOs when I was a kid. Countless hours were spent poring over instructions, snapping pieces into place and–finally–playing with the resulting toy. Not to mention the fun of building whatever my imagination could come up with.

So I won’t lie…I kind of want this: the new LEGO Technic BMW R 1200 GS. This 603-piece model is loyal to the real deal in many ways. The handlebars rotate, the windshield slides up and down, the pistons in the boxer engine move and the black spoke wheels turn. It’s even got a Telelever front suspension.

The 7-inch high, 13-inch long model will offer a challenge to the builder, as evidenced by the fact that LEGO offers an app with 3D assembly instructions. Pricing was not immediately available, but we should be able to purchase this mini LEGO Technic adventure bike early next year. Hey Santa, I don’t mind late gift delivery…
