Another great set in this next wave of technic releases. The b model is just as cool IMO. Might have to grab 2 of these to display both.

Fully agree, a lot of playability

Double HOG for this one

- one located on top in between the decks for car

- In case of car stocked on the top, a second is available on left side of the truck.

I must say it's a clever setup...

Yup this thing has 10 dials and one crank. I wonder if @efferman will make a longer trailer like he did for the mack anthem

Hmm, im somewhat disappointed by the cab, the front made up out of a few of those mud guard panels seems very light on detail, and the inner stucture seems pretty simple. Looks like it has plenty of playability, but for display purposes, the mack is far superior.

 

Shame to see they made the same crank-shaft mistake on the muscle car as on the corvette, luckily it is an easy fix, and only the most detail obsessed car nuts (i.e. me) will even notice or care.

my first thoughts, I had the original feeling that the telescoping boom part from Acros was going to be used to raise and lower the decks on the car transporter.  Does not look like it uses any specialist parts.

Trailer looks odd, like it's missing a set of wheels, and the ramp solution on the trailer, although playable looks awkward when stored. I'm starting to think this would have been a good cheaper set without the trailer, instead maybe including a second car.  But anyway.  

If this set had been made how I would have liked to see it, the truck would be shorter in length, only 1 rear axle, and the trailer would be longer and tri-axle in design.

but it's definately a good set with lots of MOD opportunity

The trailer has a pair of landing legs

No, it doesn't.

There's a pair of small wheels in front of the trailer's big wheels. Upon closer inspection, I discovered that the small wheels moved up when the rear ramps are extended. Around 0:32 - 0:33. Maybe they aren't landing legs.

For me it is one of the best Technic sets in years, playable, with some interesting mechanisms and with a few bricks like a Technic set used to be.

The overhead-steering at around 0:10 looks really unreachable for bigger hands... there is a second steering wheel somewhere on the cabin right?

This is a really handsome set, with lot of playability! I am pretty sure we will see lot of interesting linkage mechanism under the hood.

Looks fun to play.  Function over form?

I really like how TLG is including girls as well as boys in the demo vids now. Hats off to the marketing department on this one. :thumbup:

I think the small wheels in front of the trailer's wheels are movement limitors. 

If you mean the wheels right in front of the main wheel, i think they are waaaay too high up to stop the trailer from hitting the ground.

And as good as the front of the "muscle car" looks, the back looks really bad. Im getting serious ford pinto vibes, rather then the camaro front.

I thought the little wheels might be the stand for the trailer, but it doesn't need them given the wheel spacing. Definitely a mechanism there - will be interesting to see what it is.

In the video, the small wheels moved up when the rear ramps are extended. Around 0:32 - 0:33. It looks like the movements of the wheels are linked to those of the ramps, so I think the small wheels are movement limitors.

By the way, this set is listed for preorder on Lego.com, for $179.99 USD, and the official part count is 2493 parts, making it a pretty good value.

It's more expensive than the Mack truck but it has less pieces and no license!
