I always found the look of oil derricks fascinating: the mechanics and motion of them pumping oil from the ground was, to me really cool.
In this set the oil derrick really works! Its mechanically functional and the power fucntions bricks can even make it automatic as depicted in the images (it can still work without them, albeit manually). By using the LEGO fishing rod piece it can even actually 'pump' since it is flexible and thin enough to fit through the holes. The rod is held to the arm of the derrick with string and back around to the cap on top.
I think this set would be a lot of fun to have and hope you support it so we can all have one (or several). It could integrate into other LEGO factions and works well as a standalone too. Thanks for checking it out!
