After few reviews of 42053, 42054, 42055, 42056, I have to say, that this year (from my view), there is not so much special sets. We have "not so special special 42056", "awfully big only big 42055", 42054 - I saw only those tires, nothing more, and 42053 which I see like a most beautiful model of this year (maybe it is because I like pnuematics, who knows).

I hope that what we see this year will not be normal for next years - 2 flag ships (one of them disgustingly big), 1 "special" flag ship.

P.S.

I am sorry for bad english.

After attaching the motor and battery box to the Volvo, I realized that the direction of the battery box is also limited one way. So it can be said that all sets with power function in 2H 2016 adopt this technique.

However I don't really understand the purpose of that limit in the Volvo. It makes sense to do so in the Claas and BWE because the cab and bucket wheel need to rotate in one direction only. But in the Volvo the motor only rotates the pump. Is there any difference between rotating the pump clockwise and anticlockwise?

sometimes there is a difference, when I built 42043 in one direction the pump would run smoothly and wouldn't knock at all hardly, but in the other direction, dear lord it was lord, sounded like you were beating beams together.

I notice some of the 1H sets are now saying retiring soon on S@H, which is understandable given the usual 2yr cycle - but I notice today the acclaimed 42054 Class Xerion is also marked as such - seems a bit premature given it was a 2H set and it's popularity?
