Future Set Wishes and Speculation

Recommended Posts

Failing a remake, an 8455 re-release would be nice, i don't really like the idea of $350+ for a used 850 piece set.

Rereleases would be nice, older sets are outragously priced. There are a lot of great older sets. Of love to get the space shuttle.

There are many old sets I want but don't own and still I am not a fan of re-releases. Old sets may in certain aspects be outdated or have a lot of potential for improvement. A remake -42009?- is way more interesting.

An 8455 re-release without taking advantage of the new cylinders makes no sense. a remake is the way to go.

I would like to see a Licened Fendt 1050 Vario. Not RC but with a lot of pneumatic functions and real life like tyres.

Good idea, I would like to see that too.

Would love to see something like the FSB002 or Jurgen Krooshoop's Backhoe V2 with pneumatics, or with LA,s.

My whish list:

Cars (remember that I LOVE cars):

New supercar!!!: like the old-style supercars, with gearbox, hog, engine, suspension, awesomeness, etc.

hot Hatch: '80 style body, suspension, FWD with 4-cylinder fake engine, hog, mid-size.

Muscle car: blue, V8 with RWD, suspension, hog, small size.

Other vehicles:

Reach stacker: small size, manual functions

Maars exploration rover: mid-size, suspension, articulated arm.

Bucket wheel excavator: full RC, giant size, a Sbrick-like control sistem and new and brighter lighs

Tank!!!: full RC, big, shooter, dark green (like the MINI Cooper), suspension.

Non vehicles:

A DINOSAUR!!!!! : Motoriced tail and jaws, orange

Scorpion: moving legs if you move it, articulable.

Where do you live?????

Here in Germany you can easily get a used 8455 in VERY good condition with Box an BI for about 75€...

Just Check www.ebay.de - or tell me ... For a small fee i can provide you with one.... ;-)

Its right on my user tab, Australia, where everything is overpriced and, if not, ruined by our awful exchange rates.

cool, but i would prefer a licensed RC Claas Xerion with all the different steering modes (standard/all wheel/single sided crab/gentle crag/full crab) and rotating cab. and some new big tires that fits this beast.....

A rc plane able to fly on its own ;)

Back to reality..a logic guess is that the 2016 flagship will include the new long pneumatic cylinders, so why not a mining excavator (would be perfect for this) or a svetruck 52120 forklift, with fork spread, or even better: a log stacker - full rc ofcourse.

hym I am looking at Blakbird Technicopedia and I was wondering which set in any form has been not yest repeated from the past.... counting with this year II half sets

We had :

backhoes in 4 versions

excavator in at least 3

planes in at least 4

super cars - well here is a problem , we could count 2 or 3

wheel excavator as Volvo - 4 (only Volvo is a big one really)

trucks - pleanty

tractors - pleantly

race cars - like silver champion - 4

helicopters - 3

ship - 1

forklifts - 5

space shuttle - 1

subs - 2

What we are missing ? Any realistic suggestions ?

Regards

RC Supercar as 2016 flagship seems realistic for me.

Sad, but TLG will never make any walking robot, like Madcat...

a SUPER CAR is really the set that has not been relesed since a long time, especially in a RC version or even in existing "remote control" one. Question is if it will be purchase as a set by non-afols ?

Important is that kids want to like it so the AFOL will buy it for them :)

I mean normal remote controlled, with one XL for drive, one Servo for steering... Like 8070 with functionality as in 9398. For ages 11-16, as a crawler.

Following recent pattern, next year's flagship could be motorised, but won't be remotely controlled.

2010 - Motorized Excavator - RC

2011 - Unimog - non RC

2012 - Crawler - RC

2013 - Mobile Crane MK2 - non RC

2014 - Volvo - RC

2015 - Arocs - non RC

2016 - should be RC...

I want to see RC forklift with unimog tires for second half and for first half some kind of tractor.

I personally think the 2016 RC set would be a licensed Bulldozer,

sort of a remake like the bulldozer in 2007 but this set could be licensed from caterpillar perhaps. I want this more rather a RC supercar which only drives and no other interesting function.

That's a good idea!

It could have a gearbox and suspension, that's pretty interesting.
