But motorized pneumatic pump could be used at the back of harvester

That’s totally different than what he meant though. He’s talking about a pneumatic engine not a compressor. To spin the saw blade with pneumatics would require an engine. That won’t fit anywhere in the set, because the rear will house the battery box and the compressor.

EDIT: lmao at anyone thinking PFv2 is coming any time soon. There’s no need for it to since PFv1 already does what’s needed.

Expressing thoughts on the new sets:

42079. Ingenious mechanism, looks like it's gonna be a hit. Or at least the instructions will :grin: I can see this being overpriced like the 42061.

42080. Color vomit is bad, but there is tons of function potential and that's what matters to me. These are prelims anyway so it may very well change.

42081. I just don't get it. Such a weird vehicle, it really doesn't make sense as a set. Great parts though.

42082. Love it. I'm hoping the boom goes to 80cm+, because that would be a real feat. 

Also, images were removed.

@Jim, what’s the deal with drawings made of the prelim images? Is that allowed? If so then perhaps someone who still has them can get on to it ;)

Just popping in to say that "Skogsmaskin" is a fantastic word for anything, and that those Earth Green bits had BETTA be in the final thing because I have a bunch of other parts in that colour waiting to welcome them.

Okay bye and merry chrimblings

42079: Looks like a nice little set to pick up, FORKLIFT!!! it has some dark blue panels on the back, I'm interested in how the lifting mechanism will work.

I used to have the 850-1 forklift, always loved all the yellow construction sets :) Can hardly wait to get my hands on this new one.

42082: BIG! That's the first thought I had when I saw it. It's cool to have this giant telehandler, red/black is a nice change of colors, do I see a V10 engine back there? 4-wheel steering, new 3x7 frames in red, I think I see the BWE turntable quarters in black... Overall, a cool set. Now for the price reveal...

Damn, if the turntable is really made out of the BWE quarters then it's got to be a HUGE crane. Love it already, will be adding it to my collection at the earliest possibility.

Does anyone know when these sets will actually be released? The H1 sets are in my view less interesting (except for the 42078 which I just ordered).

TRU stores in my area received the 42075, 42076 and 42077.  No sign of the Mack Anthem yet.  Being a bit short on cash I just picked up the 42075 First Responder kit.  It is a really good model IMO, wish it had dual rear shocks instead of just the one, but for small-medium size kit, it was nice to see an actual differential.  Also I think a good companion model to last summer's 42068 Rescue Truck.

Around the large city I live, the airport uses lime green paint on the emergency equipment instead of red, as a lot do in the US that I have seen.  That would have been quite cool for the 42068. 

Will have to wait until after the New Year to pick up the Rally Car and hopefully at that point the Mack will be in stock at local TRU as well, not interested in the Hovercraft myself.  For a company that has declared bankruptcy, I'm quite surprised they are even stocking larger sets.

The release of these sets is scheduled for August, so a long time left.

Indeed, August as usual! (That's the month before my birthday comes!)

I haven't seen any of these sets yet in any physical stores yet. Also most online stores either don't have them or list them as "not available yet" or the like.

The Mack Anthem is listed on the Canadian site of LEGO with release date of January 1st for 229 CAD$ (other regions on the lego site don't have it listed yet). I also found it on one site that claims they have it on stock. They usually ship their stuff quite fast so I expect to get it before the newyear :)

Edit: the LEGO US site also lists the 420178 with a release date of Jan. 1st

I know what he meant; I have 2 lpe, one 3 cylinder made by my good friend Ales @nicjasno and one 2 cylinder made by myself. What I wrote down was just alternative suggestion based on solutions so far presented by LEGO :wink:

Since I have seen the light photos, I'll say this: much improved Lego! :thumbup: On to specifics...

42079: Looks like a nice little set to pick up, FORKLIFT!!! it has some dark blue panels on the back, I'm interested in how the lifting mechanism will work.

42080: What an ugly megablocker!!! :sick: Color barf for the ages here! Other than that... Cool appearance with the 8 wheels, more pneumatics is great, those curved pipe parts are in black on the bumper... what the heck are those yellow things above the saw?! Probably worth getting this set on sale.

42081: First impression: AWESOME!!! Love the insectoid look, there is a camera arm AND a drone, giant bucket, more Claas tires... What's not to love?! Probably the price.... :laugh:

42082: BIG! That's the first thought I had when I saw it. It's cool to have this giant telehandler, red/black is a nice change of colors, do I see a V10 engine back there? 4-wheel steering, new 3x7 frames in red, I think I see the BWE turntable quarters in black... Overall, a cool set. Now for the price reveal...

Flagship?... Better be impressive to top all this. Crossing my fingers it will be a McLaren supercar of some sort. :grin: Sorry for wishing.

 

Forklift is based on Arocs gear rack...

Harvester, well it had main functions but if you look at manufacturer - they have also copyright on color combination and with such diversity in real world it is very hard to make something that looks great with colors and not to copy anyone

Volvo futuristic autonomus loader - tipical visionar vehicle, so IMHO I was hoping for smaller tractor tires, but LEGO has to reuse parts and this is only second time that Volvo bucket is used..,

42082 great idea but perhaps ideal situation to introduce 81.6 mm truck wheels? Or it is not stiff enough to make steer and drive with smaller hubs?

As you said lets wait for flagship...

The functions of 42080 that are visible are:

- Pneumatic functions: Raising the crane, and Closing the yellow grabbers.
- Motorized functions: Compressor
- Manual functions: Steering, and possibly raising the cab. 

There's no axle running through the crane arm, so I think it's possible to route an axle from the motor to the saw blade.

The 42082 looks good, but I just had the impression the cabin was a bit small in proportion and I don’t see what is rough terrain about this crane. No need, keep it simple!

It was time for a worthy successor of the 855 that I build again recently, so I’m looking forward to this set. Now lets just hope that the price does not follow the 42070 trend!

It's actually rather difficult to tell who designed these sets. Someone mentioned seeing an MK on the forklift, but other than that there don't seem to be any telltale hallmarks among them.

Oh heck, I'll have a go:

42079 - I'll go with Alfred Pedersen, if for no other reason than it features a barrel as did 42049, his most recent yellow confection.

42080 - phew. Urm, Lars Krogh Jensen, given that 8049 is similar and has a lot of parallel features like pneumatics and potential PF. Don't quote me on that, though.

42081 - Looks like a Uwe Wabra. He did a similarly scaled set in the past, the 42030, and some of the build techniques look taken from 42070.

42082 - Markus Kossman. Big, and it's a crane. That's all I'll go on here.

Looking forward to finding out for real!

I haven't seen photos yet (so now I know that I should visit Eurobricks forum  more often :blush:) but I hope that new flagship will not be any supercar because in this kind of vehicles functions are always very simple.

It’s just the type of crane that it is. Google “2 axle rough terrain crane” and the same sort of vehicles come up.

Any idea why this crane for rough terrain only have 2 axles? The mobile cranes I see in my city usually have 3 or even 4.
