Enthusiasts who take to this type of puzzle will likely want to try all of them, so the difference here, beyond the level of quality in the components, has to do with difficulty level and how much they can be played with after they're constructed. While simpler versions are nice for beginners, they don't do much, so they won't be that enjoyable to have on your desk or for the kids to play with. The more complex of these can take days to finish, and once they're done, they hold up even after hours of little ones racing them around.
