Hi,

Is this a list of rumored sets for 2015?

If so, I will separate this info and start a new topic.

Long Distance Race Car will probably utilize the new Batman tumbler wheels :sweet:

so the 42039 endurance racecar seems to be the flagship?

This is probably 1H?

Enurance racecar seems like some kind of nascar or le mans type of car and also probably supercar type of set.If there will be usage of tumbler front wheels I will be very happy.

I've found also a reference to 42031 Hubarbeitsbühne, which should mean some kind of elevation platform.

Clever. Didn't think of extrapolating the range :thumbup:

Interpolating is actually a better term.

Sounds great! Based on the interval between previous Technic bikes, I was expecting a new motorbike in 2015, so I'm curious to see what the designers came up with.

I also like the sound of the tracked loader, I would like to see a tracked Bobcat-like vehicle.

The endurance racer, rocket car, "hubarbeitsbühne" and arctic vehicle are very promising and could be very original vehicles that haven't been designed before by TLG.

I will keep my fingers crossed that at least one of these sets have the new Tumbler tires, and I am wishing for nice color schemes and maybe new parts.

If 42039 Long Distance Race Car is indeed the 1h flagship, I wonder if it will go the route of 8070 in terms of functionality, or if they will actually put a proper gearbox in it.

Some interesting sets here otherwise. I am very curious about the Arctic Tracked Vehicle. If we get another snow groomer then I'll be more than happy.

It's an interesting list, no doubt. I want to see what the Tracked Loader looks like, not to mention that Arctic vehicle! :sweet:

Interesting... which ones will be small or large and which one will be the flagship? (if its even included here...) i dont think its included here, we have to wait to 2H.

So whats your bet folks?

  • 42031 - Platform = mid size set
  • 42032 - Compact Track Loader = mini/small
  • 42033 - Action Rocket Car = mini/small
  • 42034 - Action Quad = mini/small
  • 42035 - Dump Truck = large
  • 42036 - Street Motorcycle = mid size
  • 42037 - Formula Off-Roader = large
  • 42038 - Arctic Tracked Vehicle = large
  • 42039 - Long Distance Race Car = mid size

I think that "Action" sets 42033, 42034 are pull back racers

Dump truck should be a Volvo loader scale to play together:)

Formula offroad could use Tumbler wheels, because they are round shaped as sand offroaders use.

It seems like not much room for pneumatic ;(

I was really looking forward to some big (or new even longer) cylinder set...

42039 - Long-Distance Race Cars

Are you sure that this "cars" not "car"?

If it contain two cars, ot could be a pull back challenge set

Ooh, interesting! :grin:

I too think the "action" sets are small pullback models.

42038 Arctic Tracked Vehicle could maybe be an articulated vehicle, sort of like the BV206?

Given the last couple of years' 1H flagships, I wouldn't be surprised if the 42039 Long Distance Racecar is a rather large GT or LMP type endurance racer, hopefully with a manual transmission incorporating new gears :innocent2:

As usual, I am most interested in what kind of new parts will be introduced, not the sets themselves :laugh:

Cool! Now I'm even more curious to the Actic Vehicle 42038 and the 42039. Reason? Take a good look at this list, which I created with the information out of the shoplink above (Swisstoy, a B2B Shop)

  • 42031 - 15.7 x 14 x 0.61 cm, Ages 7-14
  • 42032 - 26.2 x 14 x 0.48 cm, Ages 8-14
  • 42033 - 26.2 x 14 x 0.48 cm, Ages 7-14
  • 42034 - 28.2 x 14 x 0.61 cm, Ages 7-14
  • 42035 - 26.2 x 19 x 0.77 cm, Ages 9-16
  • 42036 - 35.4 x 19 x 0.70 cm, Ages 9-16
  • 42037 - 28.2 x 26 x 0.70 cm, Ages 9-16
  • 42038 - 48 x 28.2 x 0.74 cm, Ages 10-16
  • 42039 - 48 x 37.8 x 0.94 cm, Ages 11-16

Because of this data, I draw the following conclusions:

  • 42035 seems rather small and no flagship, perhaps a companion to 42006 and 42028
  • 42038 is on my list :drool:
  • 42039 is on my list :drool:

The height of the boxsize is strange, probably because of the non-disclosure agreement. A crosscheck on some current models though, shows that the L and W are probably accurate.

Ok, now the waiting starts again... :laugh:.

Thanks for the additional information PhyBuilder. I also getting really excited about 42038 and 42039 which are for older aged kids. 42039 could be something like McLaren GTR from the 90s, what do you think? Maybe in rare colour like orange or yellow-green? Artic tracked vehicle also sounds really promising as a mid ranged set and this is where I can think of pneumatics... I hope first photos will leak in the near future...

car... cars? SO, if we translate the first set... "42032 - Compact Track Loaders" loaderS? a typo - or is it actually 2 loaders?

Wow! ty alot for this info ;) so it seems like 31 is a MINI set, 32-37 pretty much small to medium, and 38-39 seems to be very big sets... could these two be 2H sets? it seems unlikely that they will release 9(!) sets the first half of 2015. 42039 might be the flagship, judging from box size...
