80% of parts are specialized, dedicated parts. It is not a set of girders and pulleys and nuts and bolts as I remember in the original. Construction drawings are not clear. Several are printed upside-down and one is upside-down and reversed. The original Erector sets stimulated creativity and offered literally endless options. Not so much the new sets. Genuine disapointment.

The product was great until 5 minutes after it was built. The battery pack which I put together didn't fit on the back of the crane like it said in the manual. That didn't bother me until the top snapped off and the hole that the bolt was in (that held the top on the whole surrounding) broke. Now I cannot use the motor to operate the crane.
