  2. Besides being able to carry stuff uphill without spilling the contents like I wrote earlier, maybe it's to be able to "take a dump from high ground": as the pile of material on the ground grows, it needs to "raise its butt" to allow for the rest of the material to be dumped and not get clogged by what's already out.

    Actually, the 42075 isn't AWD either.
  4. Most likely it's the same as the antenna on the Mine Loader: the "sword" (I don't know the correct name) of the Musketeer CMF.
  5. I was wondering that myself. Maybe the rear lifts up to be able to climb slopes without dropping the payload behind?

    42082 - Rough Terrain Crane

    I agree. Yet, between stickers and printed parts, to me the former is the lesser evil, as that gives me the option of not applying them and therefore making the parts more usable for MOCs.
  7. If it has nice traction, suspension and off-road capabilities, and the RC is provided by PU elements, I'm not complaining. The 42065 also only drives and steers, and IMO it's a great fun model and parts pack.
  8. Just wait a bit, and prices (both at the LEGO Shop and BrickLink) will surely go down as the elements get used in more sets and therefore produced in greater quantities. This should happen especially with the driving ring extension, as its old counterpart found lots of uses in non-Technic sets.
  9. The fat (and, sadly, out of production) shock absorber can do that, by rotating the middle portion.
  10. The 42055 can be a GBC machine... for a fee. https://pv-productions.com/product/lego-gbc-15-42055-building-instructions/
  11. Or to make life less easy for copycat brands to... well... copycat the set.
  12. Definitely not the Urus.
  13. Bits of the chassis and especially the whole gearbox do look like a unicorn puked on them, but once the model is finished, all those colours become hidden.
  14. How big would a car have to be to be in scale with that engine?
  15. 2.8 Kg if I remember correctly. https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=3246
