That's what I thought by reading through the comments on that video but just wanted to make sure :grin:

The 1:1 cars aren't usually made of technic legos.

Think of the Technic Dinosaur in The LEGO House. This will be similar.

I don't know well where to put this but the new pneumatic switches are perfect to use with autovalves, I think is important, at least for me.

Seems that it will be a bit more complex that just a static 1:1 model. Check this short video where they are using 2304 PF motors simultaneously to drive a metal shaft, presumably for driving the huge model: https://www.facebook.com/LEGOTechnic/videos/295203794544868/

Hah - maybe that's the reason 42080 has an L motor rather than an M - they wanted to make sure they had lots in stock for this thing...

If you live near a Smyths (which I do, smug me), jam on over there 'cos...

42079 - £39.99

42080 - £94.99

42081 - £84.99

42082 - £169.99

Now these are some great prices. Go get 'em!

I just realized that 2018 is the first year in Technic in a long time (since 2015 I think...) that no numbers have been "skipped" in the lineup. In 2016 there was 42051, and in 2017 there was 42067 (which also showed up on the tow truck 42070 for some reason- TOW 067). Cue Anna... For the first time in forever...

Is there any reason this thread is still pinned and not the 2019 one?
 

Are we starting to put the early released 2019 sets into the 2018 wave? :laugh:

They are technically in 2018... :tongue:

But maybe it's just because we haven't had news since September and it's only 2 months until release- not much point in discussion until then unless we get some leaked images :excited:.

Good time to check https://brickset.com/buy/amazon  and other places now during Black Friday.

For me, the 42082 hit the "Buy" treshold, twice this thursday and frida. I did miss the best, sadly "sold out" + thursday only. But ordered it from amazon UK for a nice price.

First time black Friday affected me (it is even not very popular here), and bought from official Lego store (also first time for me)

Lots of sets now listed as retiring soon on the Lego (UK) shop site.

But rest easy as everyone's favorite 42070 is not one of them :wink:

This is good news. I can still argue that I don’t have every Technic set on display throughout 2019.
