Technic 2021 Set Discussion

Recommended Posts

With the LEGO Technic 42124 off-road vehicle, we get the smallest vehicle with Control + equipment to date . The set is intended for children from 10 years and is factory-designed in purple, blue and black. As with other Control + models, this one comes without an alternative model.

With 374 pieces 42124 will at most have one Control+ Hub and one motor.

Manual steering or pullback with C+ steering? :laugh:

What's going on with the next wave of sets? Cars! cars! cars!

No pneumatics, and perhaps only one set (excavator) with actuators...

As a fan of cars, I don't mind this :)

The Jeep, Senna and Ferarri will be on my wishlist.

The hovercraft might be interesting as well depending on how it looks

I expect something like 42005 (329 pieces) built around the same PU components as the Rally Car.

Hopefully one day TLG will release a Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey that actually doesnt have anything to do with Bell or Boeing either.

Doubt it - pretty sure they got a lawsuit from Boeing when they released 60021

6 cars and 4 not-cars.

Being small sets, I expect the plane and the hovercraft to be all looks and no function.

If the excavator doesn't have pneumatics I'm not terribly excited about it.

The loader has potential to be a good entry-level set like the buggy from this year, but entry-level sets are not that interesting to me, I want something a bit larger.

All in all, this lineup is really boring to me as car sets are not interesting and the other sets are small and probably minimally functional. I hope the second wave does better, though my wallet certainly hurts less with these.

It doesn't. :sceptic: But it might have one of the newer bucket parts (from 42055 or 42061).

In contrast to the ferrari, the McLaren has 830 parts for only 50€ ... maybe the complex shape needed many little non-technic slopes?

Edit: Front hood could be made from a new big fender from the Lambo just in blue...?

Would've much preferred if they stuck to the scale of the Bugatti Chiron & Lamborghini Sian for the Ferrari.

I think the trend is a 1:8 scale every 2 years and a 1:10 scale or so between them.

Waaaait a minute....

Yellow Jeep Wrangler you say...?

Rescue hovercraft in orange and DBG, let's hope it will re-utilize some of the new Osprey parts...:moar:

Added hovercraft remark

Could the Ferrari be a formula 1? It would explain why the parts count is low for a 18+ set.

Oh, that's a good idea. The last one is from 2013 (2014 if you count 42026), so it's been quite a while.

I rather think either the parts count or the price is wrong. :tongue:

Monster Jam trucks famously use BKT chevron tyres, so I don't see why the sets won't feature them. Otherwise, why not just do generic monster trucks?

Because licensing sells. I’m expecting normal balloon tyres tbh

It's all good until Homer does not leave toxic gases...OK once his megablocks stopped exit of toxic gasses but that was just once :wink:

Honestly if we don't get different size tractor tires would save my budget.
