Technic 2016 Discussion and Speculation

Recommended Posts

Too bad that 42051 has been cancelled. I lost motivation to buy the pullback sets anyway. the dragster looks fun but I'm not a big fan of "Funny Cars" anyway. It's the 42052 that I'm putting high hopes for. I like the challenge of building sets upwards 1,000 pieces plus I never had a helicopter set from Lego Technic so I want to have one, the design for me of the Heavy Lift helicopter is very fresh, it almost screams "Russian" for me though the designer's nationality is different still it's interesting to own. Not a big fan of heavy construction equipment so I'm skipping the tractor set but will be focusing on the rumored IP Car which I still hope to take the form of any of the Holy Trinity Hypercars or with a slim chance being a 2017 Ford GT.

It's only 2015 and Ford has already released the GT and with Lego being in highest point of success right now would IMO consider an American license for the Technic line, either way 2016 will be a barren year for my Technic collection. I still hope Lego is just playing coy by cancelling the 42051 and will actually surface as a 2H set considering that the 2H is going to be packed with sets upwards of 600+ pieces, TLG needs something that will buffer/balance the game.

For your information, 42051 has been canceled.

This set will not be released.

By cancelled you mean no 42051 for 1H or no fire truck as 42051?

It would seem odd to go through the full design process for 42051, and then cancel it. I'm holding out for its inclusion for H2.

I mean no fire truck 42051.

I quote TLG : "This model will not be launched".

I was gonna say I thought so too, but....

I mean no fire truck 42051.

I guess it's strange that 42051 was canceled. I'm sure that it's kinda like 75088, or it us ousted back to 2H.

I liked the truck better than 42038, so I guess my wallet will go to 42045, 42048, 42049 and 42050 where I'm waiting.

Maybe they were just referring to using it in the 2016 trebuchet competition.

I know this is off topic, but we have to remember that for a future Technic competition here on EBs, build the best trebuchet! Ok, sorry, back on topic.

Haha, but they probably will launch 42044 and 42052 then, and we will see Lego fly.

Maybe it was designed as bad as the mine loader, and the decided not to offer it.

Probably.

I think the mine loader is quite alright for its size and scale. I plan to get it although I haven't quite made up my mind yet.

Me, I'm getting it because it's the only heavy-industry related set in the 1H lineup. Odd, considering there's usually at least two.

Still seems odd the tlg would spend the money on designing a set and marketing materials and then cancel it.

And other than one person do we have and actual evidence from tlg that is was canceled?
