So instead of B Models we now have 2 in 1?

Well, it means A+B models, al least for some recent years.

What happened to the pullbacks' combined B model?:laugh:

Also, I think we're not far from having an RC boat...

42106 has a pullback motor! Just noticed that. First time a regular set has featured one. Probably not the last. Plus, that bike looks like hot vomit. :hmpf:

The buggy has flex axles in light orange as well! Cool. Wonder what the Xerion's B-model is?

Loving the pull back racing truck ... I can see that on my desk at work.

interesting hull pieces for the catamaran, are they totally new or from a City set?

got to love the mini Claas too!

for an H1 lineup I say this is pretty interesting in terms of looks, play and function. Just got to hope the big sets live up to this standard

The topic updated quickly! :laugh:

Woah, a forage harvester! Cool stuff. Technic does not have enough harvesters! :thumbup:

It looks like the "2W" will be delayed into 2H ...

Two sets have really stood out to me for something new - the buggy and the catamaran.

The buggy comes with steering AND suspension, all in a cheap tiny set. To me this is incredible, and I expect the set to fly off the shelves. It’s good that TLC have introduced a way to get more interesting/complex parts into smaller sets to make them easier to get a hold of. I hope they do this more often, and with small pneumatics as well.

The catamaran caught my attention not only because it’s a beautiful model but also because it floats. This means we’re getting an RC boat within the next few years. Something’s brewing here...

With massive single-use hull parts. Those I'm less impressed with.

Well I mean, how else could they possibly make airtight hulls?

To be fair, I did make it clear that I'd only really care if I gave a wet slap about boats. Which I don't. :thumbdown:

I also noticed that the small lime panels from 42080 make a return in the Mini Xerion! I was wondering where they'd reappear. :sweet:

@Maaboo35 Well then your comment more or less seems unwarranted lol.

But now that you mention the Claas, I wanna point out that I’m happy that they’ve also included steering for it.

As long as that's the only j-wordy part they're doing, I'm good. No one-piece crane booms, TLG... :sadnew:

It is indeed cool that the Mini Xerion steers, as does the forager. Sometimes the tiny sets can be just as impressive as the big stuff! :moar:

Those 1H 2020 sets looks sad compared to 2019 2H (my beginning with Lego).

 

I might get some of there will be a good promotion, not particularly interested in any of those.

I hope that 2h will bring more bigger sets.

It is normal. H2 sets are always bigger and more complicated than H1 sets.

There was 42095 and 42096 from 1h which i actually like. 

2020 H1 sets looks smaller than 2019 H1.

Don’t think those are flex axles. They look like plastic tubing.

I'm not a huge fan of this line-up so far. I'll certainly get the crane (can't NOT get it :laugh:) and probably I'll get the rally car as well, but that's it from this list.

On the positive side, my wallet likes this. I have spent WAY too much this year.

It looks these sets are more children oriented, I mean there is no a "big complex" set (we had the Mack and the Porsche in the last 1h waves), but I like them.

I like the 42102 most because of the two 36T gears, not many sets have this and are really useful for MOCS. So for 10 euro you get pretty good parts.
