This is different though - don't be so pessimistic, we'll see tomorrow. :wink:

Remember that just because something was mentioned in a leaked set list does not mean Lego will release it. Non of the sets we have heard about are guaranteed at this point. But also remember that if something does NOT show up at the toy fair that does not mean Lego will NOT release it. The medium sized bull dozer and the fire plane was absent from some toy fair reports and pictures and may have been absent entirely but they still got released. Only thing that 99% certain is that if it shows up a toy fair it will be released. If it does not show up at toy fair it still might be released.

IIRC bulldozer and fire plane were on Nurnberg toy fair, but only few photos were posted.

Also these pricier sets will be on toy fairs for sure.I dont know other chance to promote and made interest in these big sets.

I think it's very possible that there will be no "Ultimate IP car" on both fairs. It is very likely that it will be (if we will get it) a LBR Exclusive or at least from "Hard to Find" section and those rarely (or never) show upon toy fairs.

I hope I'm wrong though,

So you mean it could be a Lego store exclusive set with a VIP early release? Yes, that's possible of course but damn, I want to see it in at least one of the upcoming Toy Fairs. It's my most anticipated set, even if we know like nothing about it.

So the 2016 Flagship is successfully hidden until publicized. Did that happen for the Arocs last year?

So you think they will let the flagship be a bucket wheel excavator with the IP car being an exclusive set? I don't think that's likely.

IIRC no.

The curiosity made me go through the 2015 speculations forum. It was so exciting read. It turned out the Arocs full name was leaked on Dec 24, 2014. Interestingly, today is Jan 24 and people know nothing yet. :-)

Exactly, I dont think that 42056 will be exclusive.No evidence so far that there is some kind of technic exclusive set for 2016.

I think it might be a exclusive TECHNIC.But to my strange,there already have a exclusive set in Aughust and should not be two in a month.The list didn’t write “exclusive”but this set is limited released,which is different form other TECHINC sets in summer。

Limited release sounds to me like these limited small sets such as "8081 extreme cruiser" or that " red racing truck" but no set with this rumoured high price tag.If they want to have some sales, they probably want to promote this set at toy fair.Also I think exclusive technic set is probably bad idea, they need to be wide available.

Hi, it sounds like you have a list of all exclusive D2C LEGO sets for 2016? Will there be another Creator Expert car, I'd love to add another one to the current collection!

Also LEGO Technic 42056 is definitely happening and will it definitely be the Porsche 911 GT3 RS - can you confirm that once and for all with actual proof? Maybe you can share the list you got from the Russian LEGO Store? We just want proof, thanks!

London Toy Fair is officially open (8:30 GMT). :)

It's interesting that this year was a bit of bad mod between London and Nuremberg toy fairs, because german fair (which is bigger) was moved from its usual early february slot to end of january, clashing with London Toy Fair. As it turned out, there is not even a day free between both, making it impossible for smaller companies (which could afford just one booth equipment) to attend both. I'm sure that LEGO will not have those problems and that we will everything on both: first just in descriptions and few days later also pictures from germany.

About big set being exclusive or not: It's not about what TLG wants, but what stores are prepared to order. I heard that even 220euro set like Volvo was a stretch, so I doubt they would be willing to risk with 300/350 euro set.

Maybe they are toying with the idea. This year they'll see if a Technic UCS set will sell or not. And if it does, they'll keep producing new ones in the following years. Even Star Wars or Creator UCS sets must've started small, right?

Seriously... Just wait more information instead of spreading some rumors. :wink:

I have an idea about Volvo EW160E: What if the motor and batter box are placed under the turntable? The switches will be between the front and rear wheels, and on both side. There are 4 functions: outriggers, front dozer blade, rotating the turntable, and one axle for the things above the turntable. Then the axle will be connected to a pump or a bunch of other gears to control the arm.

There arent any front engined McLarens that i am aware off, im thinking Aston Martin (DB9/DBS/Vantage, one-77) or Ferrari (F12, California?), perhaps that BMW i8?
