  1. I think most kids in the target age range will try it out in water. I can't imagine myself as a kid NOT playing with it in water.
  2. Thanks a lot for great reviews - as always! Especially I appreciate details and testing of the new diff and hull parts! The catamaran is a positive surprice indeed!

    42108 - Mobile Crane

    Manually operated outriggers is one thing, to me totally manual slewing is even worse. On a mobile crane, IMO the core functions are related to operation of the crane itself, including slewing. I am aware of that all the "modern" mobile cranes (42009, 8053, 8421) have only manual slewing, but still... Slewing worked perfectly well on 8460, it shouldn't be to hard to implement in newer models. Perhaps LEGO believes that manual slewing gives better playability, easier to bring the boom to parked position etc.?
  4. They are even present on the inland glaciers of Greenland. Perhaps they are planning to make a clone series of the old Arctic Action theme...

    Your Best Technic Bargains

    I find it for NOK 3472 at lekekassen.no, that is around £295. But it is a Norwegian online store, and I think they only deliver to Norwegian customers.

    The piece count of 8053 is 1289 (according to BL), so perhaps something similar?

    Technic 2H2019 Video Reviews

    Thanks a lot for the great review! I have already ordered the set, expecting it in a few days. My 8 year old son watched your review, and is really excited and inpatient to start building. Torque is perhaps not the biggest disappointment, the ground clearance is worse...
  8. Sad to hear that. Condolences to his family and friends. Rest in peace Ingmar.

    Thanks for your excellent review of 42098, as always! My son has never been so excited about a set before, especially when he saw that it was compatible with his Corvette.
  11. Ok, I actually got one: is PFx Brick allowed? I see that SBrick and BuWizz are allowed.

    42098 - Car Transporter

    Except that 42070 have sticker with "TOW 067", of course fueling speculations about 42067.

    I did some relative measurements on that picture, indicating a length of 8 studs.

    Reversing gearbox

    I don't know if it gives enough torque, but what about making a rocking mechanism, where a smaller rotating wheel/crank is rocking a bigger wheel (with rubber tyre?) using a link? Perhaps this also gives a more realistic rolling of your ship also?
