Lego changed the name of their "advanced building sets" from Expert Builder to Technic for the 1986 catalog year. As with the rest of the Lego product line, the Technic sets have evolved over the years. More of today's sets are on scale with the Technic figures, and others represent very true-to-life vehicles.

Tech Play

In 1996, LEGO divided the Technic range by labeling some sets Tech Play and others Tech Build. The Tech Play sets are the simpler of the two, with limited functionality but a high level of playability.

Cyber Slam

Too many late nights have been spent by LEGO designers watching reruns of Star Trek: The Next Generation. That is the only way to explain the borgified Picard figure that comes with one of these sets. The Cyber Slam sets are simply weird. Part of the Technic line, they incorporate a bizarre punch arm and target combination so that kids can beat the heck out of eachother. Sort of a do-it-yourself Rockem Sockem Robots thing...
