Technic 2021 Set Discussion

Interesting are also the other notes (Source: https://zusammengebaut.com/live-ticker-keine-spielwarenmesse-2021-alle-lego-neuheiten-113557/?fbclid=IwAR2d_fTo4gncwkRMyD2wUZ8rM3HUTIWN1cUyy9VVdV0ZtAnxaxMy8CY3wh8

My own translation:

"Technic 2. half year

Dozer (note: misleadingly he wrote down 'Bagger', which means excavator)       6898 Pieces

Truck MB (note: Mercedes Benz)   Powered Up

Forklift      2325 Pieces"

The last one really is misleading too: Either the reporter has zero clues about heavy equipment and meant the 42128 Tow Truck as he saw two "forks" on the back for towing, which would be strange, as this set should have 2017 pieces OR the forklift is the unknown 42130.

These are „fake news“ 

that was satire for the failed toy fair this year 👍🏻

The above posts should be deleted by the authors or mods to prevent further fake news spreading. I am a bit disappointed by zusammengebaut that they posted that, because even for a native speaker it seemed pretty believable at first and quickly escalated to false rumor spreading on other social media channels as well.

Is the written note fake news?

Looks like it. I re-read the article. Aprils Fools Day in January it seems:

"LEGO welcomes the invited guests and names the most successful themes of the previous year. The Top 5:

" LEGO Pirates
" LEGO Classic Space
" LEGO Trains
" LEGO Brains
" LEGO Nexo Knights"

.... so the 6986 pieces CAT is highly likely not true... xD

Edit: According to more reliable source, the piece count of the CAT is 3854: https://www.stonewars.de/news/lego-technic-sommer-2021/#lego-technic-42130

Hmm. I like the excavator, but the hovercraft doesn't do it for me. Probably not going to buy any.

I might buy it as a parts donor if it's not too expensive. What's the price again?

Maybe he doesn’t like it enough to buy it, or he’s not in a position to buy one

I can only wish you that things will be better but I know that it is a long hard road out of hell initially caused by Covid :sad:

i wasn't appealed at all by the Dom'dodge charger when it goes out.

I buy it only as part donor to replicate @paave's police car.

My daughter ask me if she could built the dodge at first. What she does.

And i was stunned by the model, once built.

So i'll never get too quick opinion on sets anymore, TLG designer worked hard on it (most of time) and there are often good surprise :classic:

I felt just the same with the Ducati, I bought it for its price and parts without likying a lot bikes and when I did it I got shocked with the Lego work, I did twice and even did it a MOD improving some parts. With the Charger I have the same feeling in fact I have bought the tyres to can do it.

I will buy the hovercraft just for the parts. I bought two of the Unimogs and I always want more orange parts!

Up to this point, i feel like this writing note is real.

I saw his writing note for Speed Champions at 2HY, its all same as the rumors listed I saw at other social platform.

42127 and 42130 just got listed on Stonewars.de website: https://www.stonewars.de/news/lego-technic-sommer-2021/

42127 is like 42126 just called "IP vehicle", but interestingly enough this one is not marked 18+. The American RRP is $99.99 USD. The only info is that it's from a movie. Coming fall 2021.

42130 has absolutely no info besides that it exists.

No description available.

 

Let's hope there won't be another reconstruction thread for the orange-grey rescue twin-blade model
