We’ve long been fans of the classic Mercedes-Benz Unimog, so when LEGO Technic unveiled a set that let you build a fully functioning brick Unimog, we were all in.

This LEGO kit comes with 2048 pieces that come together to build an orange Mercedes Unimog that can be converted into a snow plow. It features a pneumatically-powered, articulated crane that has a working winch and a grabbed powered by LEGO Power Functions (batteries not included). The build has realistic steering, with 4-wheel drive and suspension. What’s more, it even has working pistons that actually move. When built, the vehicle comes in at over 19 inches long and 12 inches high. Although it’s intended for ages 11-16, that doesn’t mean we can’t have a bit of fun with it, right? It’s available now for $314. [Purchase]
