Technic 2017 Set Discussion

Recommended Posts

This is getting me more excited about 2H! I hope it's a combo model. And it is likely, because we didn't learn about the '57 '61 and '63 combo until after they were released. So it wouldn't be like the 2H combo model was late.

Wait a minute, the sticker says "tow 067." what if that means it tows something called 067.

Good question, maybe it is a new supercar that can be towed........

I checked, there was only one Technic set so far with the number "67" in it - the 8067 from 2011 which is not a really exciting one. Now I'm really curious how Lego is planning to add an extra twist, I'd love to see another combined vehicle from the 2H sets

Funnily enough, the 8067 B-model is a tow truck.

Or maybe 067 is only a random number, like the many ones TLG puts in set stickers.

Or maybe you didn't read my comment about the number 067 :hmpf_bad:

Apparently the 067 has a meaning and we will find out later, but it has nothing to do with the missing 42067. Allegedly....

Many years have had missing numbers, this is nothing new or unusual and I'm kinda surprised it has caused so much discussion. But now Jim has me intrigued by the meaning behind the number 067. Anxiously awaiting Jim's report! :sweet:

Interesting, how powerful 42070 is? I wonder if there should be some correlation between the torque of truck and crane, and weight of estimated 42067...
Can it lift and pull Porsche (42065), or a half of it?

Can it really be a road car? I believe this kind of truck is made to tow heavier vehicles. Although that Eleanor does look sweet...

I agree 42070 is more for pulling trucks out ditches.

Yeah and with V8 LPE :laugh:

BTW, fire truck has flat 4 cylinder engine, but is it possible to have new smaller diffrrential in fire truck (set 42068), because it has smaller tires 56mm and ordinary differential wil be just about one stud above ground?

This question will be certanly answered by Jim's review, but does anyone know more about it. We know that set 42070 has older type of differenzial recolored in red like clutch gears...

Yup, to quote one of the designers.....

"This vehicle will tow the vehicle that was towing your vehicle" 

So this vehicle is as rough as it gets in the tow truck department :sweet:
