Product Description

CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.

Make your track layout flexible! Each piece is flexible and can turn both left and right.

To be able to understand why LEGO has been successful for so long, just look to the name. LEGO originally got its name from founder Ole Kirk Christiansen who combed the Danish words "Leg Got" which means "play well". He later realized that LEGO in Latin translates to "I put together. The LEGO set became a standard of creative play for children worldwide, unlocking the creativity to build vehicles, buildings, cities and more. Historians point to the invention of the wheel as a major turning point in world history. The invention of the LEGO wheel had the same monumental effect in the history of LEGO, making it possible to create cars, trucks and eventually the LEGO train building set that is one of the most successful LEGO sets of all time. LEGO currently produces about 20 billion LEGO bricks a year and has sold over 400 billion LEGOs in their history -- enough for every person on the planet to have over 60 LEGOs each!

I don't care what other people are saying, the lies and bad reviews about this set makes me want to throw up. They don't understand what this set is good for, the purpose, or even how USEFUL it is. On train layouts, sometimes you make AWESOME layouts, but a track from being done, you come across a part where the tracks won't connect, they can't reach, or a track won't fit in. This is set is EXACTLY what that is for. LEGO is REALLY smart for coming up with this one. YOU USE THE FLEXIBLE TRACK FOR THOSE PARTS THAT WON'T REACH OR CONNECT!!!! It is also really good support for layouts. The trains don't slip THAT much, and they are NOT that ugly. Some people thought this was a way to get more curved track or straight track or Blah Blah Blah THOSE people only look at DOWNSIDES of GOOD sets and can't appreciate good LEGO.

Flexible track was a bad idea from the start. It is ironic that the description says it can "create even more detailed and realistic train layouts!" In my opinion, it does just the opposite. First of all, this set has 64 pieces of track in it, which adds up to 16 normal track pieces, which is enough to make a full loop. In my layout, I haven't even used half of the flexible track from this set. This would only work if you ONLY had flexible track in your layout. If LEGO is advertising it to make more detailed layouts, they should at least package it smaller. One major flaw is the performance of trains on it. Because of the holes required to make the track flex, it minimizes the traction trains get. The Emerald Night in reverse will jam on the flexible track, and if your layout is slightly uneven, or if you have a lot of cars, sometimes it won't even start going, and you have to push it to get it started. With the Passenger Train, it will peel out for a long time, sometimes not even budging an inch. It's even worse when you use the flexible track as turn pieces. Lastly, this track isn't realistic at ALL. It looks atrocious next to the normal RC track. Plus, because of it's "awesome" flexibility, if you use a lot of flexible track in one place, your layout will shift overtime due to trains going over it, Especially if you use the flexible track to make larger turns.This is even worse if your layout is on a wooden table, tile, or other smooth surface. I think initially LEGO came up with the flexible track so that people could make more sophisticated track layouts. I don't think that making the track flexible was the best idea, though. LEGO could easily solve the problem by making regular RC track, and make track peices that are 1/4 the size of normal track peices, and some larger curve peices as well. That would still allow you to have more sophisticated layouts, and would give you a lot better results than this set.

Comments about LEGO Functions Flexible Train Track (8867):

PURCHASED FOR USE WITH THE HI-SPEED TRAIN AND TRAIN STATION. THE PRODUCT IS VERY WELL CONSTRUCTED. THE PRODUCT MATERIALS ARE DIFFERENT FROM THE LEGO HI-SPEED TRAIN AND TRAIN STATION AND I DID NOT LIKE HOW THEY WENT TOGETHER.

Good gap filler

By LostKey

from denver

Comments about LEGO Functions Flexible Train Track (8867):

This set is good for filling small gaps in the track, and adding strength to curves that are prone to coming undone. I made an X-crossing with four of these, and was very pleased at how it worked in a traditional figure-8 track. I also liked how they connect with the switches, so that you don't have to have a million inches of track connecting them.

Flexi vs Curved

By Koopasdaddy

from natland

Comments about LEGO Functions Flexible Train Track (8867):

Flexitrack has its place in complicated layouts but in my experience is no replacement for fixed curves. If used as a straight it needs the ends of the 'sleepers' linking to prevent movement and is very noisy in use.

My 9 yr old twin boys needed the extension for their tracks and this set works well for that purpose. It should be available in stores as well. Also a little expensive.

Questionable purchase

By axeIeng

from Undisclosed

Comments about LEGO Functions Flexible Train Track (8867):

It's hard to put a verdict on this set - by itself it's a fairly decent product, but in practice there's NO reason to buy it. The track works reasonably well for tricky gaps but less so for long stretches - it looks bad, won't stay in place and many trains (especially complex steam engines like the Emerald Night) will run slow, noisy and easily derail. The trick to flextrack is to take three or so pieces and distribute them as evenly as possible around a difficult loop so it hinges like a triangle, instead of using 6-8 pieces together to fill the final gap. When used individually trains will have less problems and they don't look quite as bad as they could sorta pass as some signal/ground circuit junction. This highlights the first issue with this set, it's too large and would constitute a lifetime supply for most users. I've never used more than half the pieces, and even then usually because I ran out of regular track. Which leads to the other issue, that you currently can't buy straight track without getting even more excess flex. There's just no point to this set when when you're already forced to buy more flex than you need. I would preferred quarter-length pieces of regular straight and curved track over this, while not as flexible they would look better and eliminate most of the running issues. Also, if you built a long section of quarter-length straights it would probably be flexible enough for large-radius curves and connections that don't quite fit. Pros: Useful for tricky gaps Black/white box gives it a whiff of exclusivity More than you'll ever need Cons: More than you'll ever need Trains sometimes don't run well Looks bad Conclusion: Buy 7499 instead and get some useful straight track too

        Nice Set

        By MayorofLegoVille

        from Kansas City

        Comments about LEGO Functions Flexible Train Track (8867):

        Nice set. No major problems, although the passenger train slightly slows down, but it's not that big of a deal. I made a 360 inch loop with 3 flexible and straight track sets, the passenger train, the train station and 1 flexible track set. PROS Good value for money 85 inches long when stretched out straight CONS Train slightly slows down on flexible track Overall, it's a great set!

        Limited usefulness

        By Noki

        from Cherry

        Comments about LEGO Functions Flexible Train Track (8867):

        These are great if you need like half a regular track to complete a segment or need to make a small turn to connect regular track, but they work very poorly for long segments and when used in mass. The regular tracks are always a better choice and these are only needed when a regular track just won't fit.

        These tracks work really well. Don't listen to the other people because these tracks DO work. It is a good amount of track for what you pay for. Thank you Lego!
