Technic 2016 Discussion and Speculation

Recommended Posts

It's 1 and a half day until we know more.

Probably two days or more, because in London toy fair they cannot take photos and only Huw from brickset attend this toy fair.

All I know is that my budget for technic this year has been padded because of the anticipation of the sets that will hopefully see the light of day. im really looking forward to seeing the 2h reveals in the upcoming events

Huw is quite partial to Technic I think, so if he is going to London toy fair this Sunday we will be sure to get some actual real info on at least some of the summer sets. There have been many toy fairs in the past that have had some of the summer sets missing, though it is usually the smaller of the summer sets. Has Huw confirmed that he is going this year?

Hm, I doubt Huw is the only one to report from London Toy Fair this weekend - I'm sure there'll be people from other LEGO fansites as well.

I just remembered another reason the 911 is a likely candidate over other Porsche models: Isn't the company celebrating an anniversary of the 911 right now? 40th or 50th, IIRC.

My bad, I guess it was 2014.

All speculation will come to an end very soon - but I believe mackset said the truth and we'll get a Porsche 911 GT3 RS.

We'll get images next Tuesday (promobricks.de, zusammengebaut.de) are just two sites to report, post images, videos, etc. live from Nuremberg Toy Fair press event on January 26th.

I have asked if we'll see images of all the 2H 2016 Technic sets on the 26th already and they said yes, definitely!

I am excited! ... and let's not forget that we'll get descriptions probably by Sunday evening, hopefully!

I know we are going to find out soon but do you think the IP car being dark blue like 41999 would be awesome?

For anyone that's a VERY catalogue customer in the UK, they just sent existing customers a £50 off voucher in the post when you spend £100. The heavy lift helecopter had a list price of £100 and it turned up today.

Unfortunately, I've checked and the code can only be used by the person it was sent to, otherwise I'd happily share it.

Is that a Lego specific voucher?

Huw will post detailed descriptions of each 2nd wave Technic set tomorrow evening on brickset.com - he just confirmed that in an E-Mail to me.

So just 24 hours to go, plus on Tuesday afternoon we'll get pictures from promobricks.de!

We are almost there guys, let's take a break and be back tomorrow.

Could an "outlaw" do some "leaks" at the London Toy Fair? Or do they register people to see if they have cameras?

Only select press with invitation from LEGO can access the LEGO booth at London Toy Fair - Huw from brickset.com is one of them.

From what "leaks" are you talking about. Huw will post detailed descriptions of each 2H Technic set tomorrow evening - no pictures allowed though, but we'll get pictures on Tuesday evening, so two days later. It's really no big deal - there's no need for leaks at this point!

I know, I participate this discussion a lot.But still almost zero info only some new user claimed this.

I will not be so much suprised if its cancelled or never meant to be released.
