Technic 2016 Discussion and Speculation

Recommended Posts

Maybe it is new car that was not already presented in real life...

For the moment I'm happy that this set exists ... we all had fears it might have been cancelled. Thank god that's not the case at all. I'm sure we'll get very detailed descriptions on all the four sets from Huw in a few hours.

Every year since 2010 only 2 sets come ready with Power Function, so I guess Xerion will be PF-upgradable. Volvo wouldn't have Power Function, which probably means it'll have a hand pump. If so probably Volvo wouldn't need PF at all and wouldn't be PF-upgradable.

Lego's really pushing the part count limit aren't they?

- 2011: Unimog, 2100 pcs

- 2013: Mobile Crane, 2600 pcs

- 2015: MB Arocs, 2800 pcs

- 2016: BWE 3000 pcs

I used to think it's not until 2017 that we see a new limit, but it comes sooner than I thought.

If they're pushing part count that high this will be a must buy for me. I've been hoping that this BWE would be massive.

We are all waiting for Huw to upload the descriptions on brickset.com, right? Pressing F5 every second.

Brick Fanatics reported that BWE: 179.99 £ , Car: 249.99 £ .

Promo Brick cite Brick Fanatics as source, however reported that BWE: 249.99 £ , Car: 179.99 £.

I think Promo Brick made some mistakes while typing, probably because of excitement.

I hope that the car is NO Mercedes (I don't like how their cars look). Also I doubt they would do yet another Mercedes licensed Technic set this year, since we just got one great one last year.

But before promobrick source stated that BWE is 300€ set and they maybe correct brick fanatics.Brickset probably will have correct answer.

I don't think the BWE will be 3000 pieces and "only" 179.99 £. It must be the other way around.

Also Promobricks updated the list I think.

There's no license behind BWE, so could be possible.

Searching 'ultramotive' i found this car build by: Varley Group, Ultramotive and Tritium.

it's name: Varley EVR450.

A full electric supercar. Could it be this one?

+ Many power functions parts, I dont think that BWE will use only one motor.

This might be my opinion, but that would bomb HARD at that price point, very little mechanics (no fake engine, presumably no gearbox), zero brand appeal, and honestly, very generic early 00s super car looks

Arocs was close to 3000 parts and I don't think the BWE would need more than one motor so £180 sounds about right for that. I hope so anyway, would prefer the Supercar to be the £250 set.

if BWE is 3000pc, what would be the B model?

Any guess?

They will be no tires, probably chain gears..

What would you build/design/quess/want as B model for BWE?

I think BWE uses at least 1 XL motor. Moving tracks, moving boom, moving bucket wheel are all heavy tasks.

My bet is a trench digger. It can utilize the whole bucket wheel and conveyor belts.

I'm more curious what will be the B-model for the CLASS tractor. ;) I'm hoping for some other CLAAS product - maybe AXION. ;)

Promobricks on some german site named doctor brick forum say, that brickfanaticks change prices of BWE and supercar.Also with that price for BWE i think it will be fully RC.You can remotely change functions, this would be great!
