Technic 2016 Discussion and Speculation

Recommended Posts

Not all flagships have been " big" in the past, but have mainly been a flagship because of functionality and playabilty. The Volvo is new in many aspects and special functions.The BWE has in my opinion no functionality or something to play with instead of a turning wheel. The BWE will be a nice C-Model of the 42042 set. I will give it a try.

You probably have no idea what technic BWE can do.

Functions-Working threads, working belt with bucket wheel, rotation of structure, elevation of structure.

Yeah this "ferris wheel" is maybe joke, but only for you(You sound in many aspects pretty silly).This is first time we have this machine as lego set, so one year without technic "classic" such as yellow cranes is nice year.

Honestly, although I don't mind a BWE, the most impressive thing with the real thing is how insanely huge it is while still being a functioning machine.

I've only ever seen in real life an older forward-facing wire excavator which was said to be 480 tons, about 3-4 floors tall, and even that is small compared to the biggest BWEs.

Getting to see one of those in real life would have to be insane!

Me neither :hmpf_bad:

I have been following this discussion and it's getting nowhere. We already got the information about which set is which size and people are still speculating that it's gonna be different. And begging TLG not to cancel sets etc. Come on guys; we can do better than that. This is not some kids Facebook group. We're adults here. Let's talk about the 2016 sets in a mature way. And if there's nothing to add to the discussion, simply don't add another post.

yay the 90th page!

I mean....really?!

So Volvo will be regular 2H flagship model

Based on which information?!

I still doubt the BWE will be the flagship. It just doesn't make sense. Hardly anyone knows about this excavator and who wants a RC Ferris Wheel on tracks? ;-) I will never take Lego serious again if they release this joke as the flagship.

Having a BWE would be a very welcome addition in my opinion. So please refrain from calling something "a joke as a flagship" while you haven't seen a single picture of it.

i hope nothing else gets canceled! TLG if your reading this post stop canceling things i bet lots and lots of people are really disapponted about sets getting canceled!

If TLG cancels a set, they have their reasons. No need to beg, or order them to stop canceling. The fact that we saw a prelim picture doesn't mean they are obliged to release the set.

i hope its not the flagship because i want the 300 euro ip car!

Yeah yeah, we get it.

I'm quite anxious to see the Volvo EW160E because it could be a great source of pneumatics, and hopefully the nice black and yellow color scheme. I wonder which size tire will be used for it.

May be the BWE comes in a scale like the 8288?

Or last year mine truck.I know they never use mine truck and BWE at the same time, but for playability it will be great.

The engine fan from 42030? I wouldn't worry, if they release one I'm sure it'll be big enough to have some decent functionality.

Thanks for your compliments about sounding silly. Let me remind you, an opinion is never silly, it's just an opinion, just respect that. Thank you. Besides that, i like humor and i express that. Futhermore, this topic is all about opinions and speculation. So be more open for it.

I know what a BWE is and what mess it can make. I don't like it, you like it, good for you.

I'm really hoping it isn't pneumatic, you guys got the Arocs last year with new pneumatics.

Following the technic cycles, we have to aspect 3 sets in 2h16. The regular one with power functions - its also the flagship with RC and one model that is powerfunction ready (the Claas). If Volvo is 50 Euro small than this set is dissapointing and will not use the new pneumatics. No rumors, its a fact. 40 pages are useless with wishes they have nothing to do with this topic. And no, TLG is not reading...

This Jim is an idiot. Waler has the knowledge every year. But nothing than rumors on 93 pages that can be packed to 2...

Their is no reason to be rude, it is a DISCUSSION and speculation forum. That means people can say what they would like to see in the upcoming future sets as well as speculation coming from insiders that know about the actual set.

Sure the topic is 93 pages, but how many times have I seen contribution from yourself? You can't come on here calling people idiots (btw Jim is no idiot, in fact a very intelligent man) and Waler also provides very interesting and helpful information.

So to get off my little rant. I'm looking forward to 42030 having a twin size brother and maybe the dump truck with trailer sometime in the future :)

Waler is just collecting all information together and draws a conclusion :) It is obvious that sets with "higher" number are bigger in part count. But I see some people could argue with that :wink:

You started offending this set without any knowledge that may harsh some fans of it and now you want to have some respect?This is bad joke isnt it?

My god Ondra. I started offending a set? Are you kidding me. How can i offend a set? It's just Lego, not a person. You took it personal to me about being silly, but it seems more people here have a problem of being rude to another. A shame, it's just Lego people.

May I suggest locking this topic until certain users cool down?

This topic should not be locked in my opinion, we are adults after all. TimTimGo87 can make his apology to Jim and i'm ok after the insult of Ondra.

Don't be rude to each other, just share your opinion about the upcoming Lego sets.
