According to Timoonn's picture, 400-500 pieces are going into some sort of cave sides and rocks. The whole main machine just doesn't look big or dense enough to reach 4000 pieces.

Is it possible the grey 2x4 bricks in the picture are merely set dressing to show the average person that yes, this is actually Lego?

There's plenty of room for 4000 pieces if 2500 are black pins...

I also think there just for show and not in the set.

Mm. Like the rock face that was shown in the 42055 demonstration video.

If you look at the last hi-res pic, there are some bits in the bucket on the "BI"

yes there are some technic bricks in the bucket. But not that much, like 15-20 pieces. I just see it later, after the picture was new relinkt.

we just can hope that there are not that much useless pieces just for some „load“ in the bucket...

I don't know if it already had been mentioned here, but those LA look like it's a new mold/design, and not just an extension of the current LA's, also the tracks have the new big sprocket wheels, all good things to modify cranes and track bases, just enough to modify the booms of 42009 and 42082 and to modify the tracks of 42042, the last 2 LA's I can use to modify 8043.

That liebherr excavator is reallyu a must buy for 2 boxes. I can hardly wait

They looks like elongated versions of the current model to me. But I suppose we'll see more soon.

The new LA's looks to be 17 studs long full retracted, including brackets. The current LA's are 13 studs retracted - 18 extended. 

I suppose the new LA's will be 24 studs when extended.

I must say that all these bigger, longer, larger parts is an interesting development...
What giant sets can we expect in the future?

Well, the best way, by far, to encourage TLC, is to buy this set... :classic:

We still lack many medium parts like flat triangle panels.

And I don't think it makes sense to create any parts longer than 15 studs. After all they must be stiff enough!

Argee at 100%, the bigger parts requires much more additional triangle structures to support them that results in bigger parts count and so on...

I agre, this machine is in the limit of playability, we will see if it is too big to have a reasonable movement in the arm, the tracks will not be a problem the real machine is very slow.

Maybe a new BWE, or a bulldozer or a Liebherr crane...
