Technic 2016 Discussion and Speculation

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

was at toy fair yesterday and this is what i got from it:

That's the type of info that we all needed, and were hoping for. Thank you for sharing. And before anyone says, even though your credibility is questionable and we have no way of verifying the truth of your claims for the time being, I choose to believe you.

Now, let the speculations commence!

Thanks! I wanted to buy the Claas and Porsche sets but wasn't sure as to how much each paycheck I need to save. I need $500 over 5 months to get these 2 sets, hopefully Lego adjusts the prices in US Dollars so there's a more definite information.

Hi,

Do you think these retail prices include VAT, and if so, is it Germany VAT?

Thanks,

Mikko

Well, with that price on the porsche, ive got one word for Lego: LOLNOPE

It might be well worth it for the amount of parts and possibly PF stuff, but €300 is just waaaay out of range for a set for me without really hitting the X-factor (and a porsche 911 doesnt quite do it for me)

The BWE seems like a good deal though, nearly 4K parts for €230, even if there are a LOT of tracks in there

In german it´s called "unverbindliche Preisempfehlung", i think it´s recommended retail price, so it´ll be the price at legoshop i guess

The price mentioned should be the final price to the customer (at least in EU, NA is somwhat different with their state taxes)

So the price for the Volvo is 89 €

But that miight change from one EU country to another because TLG is ... daft? Silly? Really wants BL to grow?

The price 90EUR is probably the same all over EU +/-10EUR

Cheers,

Ole

Having converted the costs to SEK the prices for all except the Porsche seem accurate considering the sizes of the sets. Still can't believe the Porsche is that expensive though.

Edit

That being that they are the recommended prices. Actual prices for store worth buying from will be lower and of course the actual prices will also differ slightly due to regions. I'm not really saying anything new am i? :sceptic::blush:

tunnel boring machine? :-) (I do not find that boring, but exciting) with buckets going around horizontal axis, with super slow crawling body behind that does not exceed front boring face at all so the tunnel stays round.

I will build that one too.

I was fortunate enough to build a real one, 14m dia, it would be an interesting Technic build.

Hi folks, where does the price of 229€ for the BWE come from?

In the "zusammengebaut.com" Blog the price is given with 299€

and I believe they got this information directly from the Nuremberg Toy Fair.

Actually taking the piece count and size, 299 EUR seems to be much more likely to me.

And if by contrast BEW is 299 and Porsche is 229??....How many pieces have the Porsche??...looks like 2300/2500 pcs...

zusammengebaut.com must have missunderstood this. The price for BWE is 230 €. The price for the Porsche is rumored with 300 € but nothing has been confirmed just yet.
