Nice format. I think the new hub parts are worthy of a mention in the parts for the grand prix racer.

We do already have this topic...

http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=73601

I know that, but the information is always spread out on lots of pages. We can keep that topic as discussion topic while this one has all the info.

Will add them.

Usually within the first weeks or month of next year we get some tiny blurry pictures with a list of set names/numbers before the end of this year.

Definitely getting the Grand Prix Racer. Always wish I had the money to buy the Silver Champion when I was young.

I don't know why nobody has picked up on this yet:

- The Hovercraft is reported as being the 42001 when the box says 42002;

- The Mini-Backhoe is reported as being the 42002 when the box says 42004;

- The Action Racecar is reported as being the 42003 when the box says 42011;

- The Action Race Buggy is reported as being the 42004 when the box says 42010, and;

- The Motocross bike is reported as being the 42005 when the box says 42007.

This means we're missing 42001, -3, -5, -8 and -9, one of which is undoubtedly the Grand Prix Racer...

Wow, nobody here on the forum saw these errors *huh*:grin:

But, I don't think the number of the grand prix is wrong. I think the GP racer is just 42000.

I'm so used to my all posts edit right in de digital designer section. I wanted to edit the first post to correct the errors, but then I reminded myself I can't :wall::grin:

Can captainmib or a moderator edit his post?

Sorry if this is old news, but most of these are up for pre-order on amazon.fr:

42000 F1 car - €98.30

42002 Hovercraft - €14.97

42004 Backhoe - €18.80

42007 Motocross Bike - €28.10

42006 Material Handler - €61.80

There's some quite high-res images available, including at least one B-model not shown above, for 42004:

<edit sorry about the huge image>

Bigger version

Can anyone spot any differences in these shots of the F1 car and the leaked images from a few months back?

Those are new to me at least, looking promising. I don't speak French, but it seems the Grand Prix Racer is offered as an F1 car?

Still; looks very good, if I will buy any of the sets, that'll be the one!

Yeah, at €100, I might have to get me one of them when the time comes. Or wait until there's a discount.

Just spotted another thing: I think that the material handler is designed to be motorised with the 8293 PF set. Check out the pole reverser in this shot:

51QELWaLxjL._AA300_.jpg

big version

Edit: I also just spotted in the above, where the grey & beige bevel gears are in the claw, this piece in light grey?

87408.jpg

Edit 2: And another one: On either side of that piece, and connecting the two yellow 5L half beams on either side of the 11L beam in the arm/boom/jib/whatever in this shot, do I see some of these 3/4 pins in beige? A frictionless version, perhaps?

32002.gif

Finally, I'm not sure what's going on with the axle through the beige single bevel gear in the claw. It appears to be red (or possibly orange?), but if it's only 2L, I don't see how it can attach to anything on the other side. Unless it's fixed so it can't turn, and using that function swings the claw, rather than closing it, but that seems unlikely. A new part perhaps? Perhaps a shorter one of these?

99008.jpg

Edit again: Whoops, it's just a mini linear actuator. My bad, I haven't got any of them yet, so I'm not very familiar with them.

The Scooter Guy had captured the pictures of that Lego 42000 that was (briefly) offered on eBay. He posted them on his Flickr photostream. Here are comparison shots between the official TLG "renders" and the actual model that was on eBay:

It better have the big new orange panels on both sides also. Not sure why it wouldn't though. Would it have killed them to work in some orange 1x7 thick liftarms too?
