    42126 - Ford F150 Raptor

    Orange looks good, but man would I have liked the dark blue one! Actually it also has design differences I just noticed. Lightbar, bullbar, and overal cleaner front. Why did they have to change the design?

    There are other ways https://www.chromeblockcity.com/ http://bubul.unasshop.com/
  6. @Jundis I have no idea. This is what I posted way back in February and nothing has been leaked or revealed since then. Maybe they’re delayed?
  7. This is the best set of the year (so far) imo. Great looks, great functionality, pneumatics (always a plus in my book) and fair pricing. The set looks much better without stickers imo. The leaked photos had different stickers, which did look better. The ones that come with the set look too “toy-ish”.

    Because of site/server/storage limitations, images have to be upload on external hosts like Flickr, Imgur or Bricksafe. You can then copy the image link and Eurobricks will automatically embed them into your message.

    [MOC][WIP] Nissan 180SX Type X

    The mix of system and technic panels to create such a smooth bodywork is very impressive. I really like this area in particular:

    Found it. I think I see blue 1x2 technic bricks too. These are pretty rare.

    Still can't find anything. Do you have a link or picture?

    You sure that's the right set number? I can't find anything when looking for 76250.
  14. The new alternating liftarm is 1x11, it has several. I spotted 9 or something. Pneumatic cylinder 1x11 only came in the Arocs and used they cost €50+ (Exit: seems they dropped in price since I last checked. Still around €40 each though). The pump only came in 42053 and the 2x11 cylinders in a couple sets already. The valves only came in 42080. It also has the orange 3x3 T shape liftarm that previously only came in the Osprey. Otherwise no new parts I believe.

    Not that it would make a 40% difference, but taxes aren’t included in the American prices (because each state has a different tax rate) while they are included in the European prices. Taxes are also higher over here: a quick Google search told me California is the highest with 7.25% sales tax, while here in the Netherlands it is 21%. On the bright side, in Europe we do get nice deals from time to time. At one point a new Bugatti was around €200 (50% off RRP in the Netherlands!). From what I have seen and read discounts aren’t so common in America. Don’t know about Canada or Australia though...

    42129 - 4x4 Mercedes-Benz Zetros

    The article I linked mentioned a "sperdifferentieel", which translates to "limited slip differential". Either the translation is off or the wave selector doesn't lock the differentials.

    42129 - 4x4 Mercedes-Benz Zetros

    I'm not sure. The back half motor is LBG, the pin seems lighter to me. It could very well be flat silver which they also make nowadays... I am aware. The skateboard picture is very clearly steeper than what is shown on the box though. edit: also, the box doesn't advertise any angle. Unless the LEGO version weighs 40 tons and has over 500 bhp, the angle that is shown on the box is what the real thing can climb.

    On the last photo: Is that a white pin with stop bush? I can't tell for sure. On the back of the box they are advertising it as being able to climb a steep angle, although that is not 45 degrees.

    42128 - Heavy-Duty Tow Truck

    The white air tank only came in a LEGO education set if I remember correctly. It must have been retired last year, because I also ordered a white air tank around November 2019. You might still be able to order them if you call LEGO and give them the part number though. That has worked for me in the past, also for pieces that weren't even listed on their site.

    42128 - Heavy-Duty Tow Truck

    This is the best set so far imo. Unfortunately no mini cylinders but this set is packed with functions. The crane rotates as well, which is new for official LEGO tow trucks I believe.

    Good pictures make all the difference. You tell me, would you rather buy something with a low resolution blurry picture and without any kind of description, or something with high quality pictures showing a product in the best ways with a complete list of what it includes and what it can do? To be completely honest I don’t think this is an amazing looking set, but it most definitely looks a lot better than what we have seen previously.

    +1, let’s have at least a single complete color palette first, before adding some obscure color that will only be used in 1 set Looking at 42039 and 42069...

    And today there is some official news for this set too. This time a Dutch blog post. https://www.bricktastic.nl/lego-technic/retailer-toont-lego-technic-42129-mercedes-benz-zetros/

    42126 - Ford F150 Raptor

    The first picture posted by @Ngoc Nguyen almost 100% certainly shows a difference in shade between the black #3 connectors and the 27940 connector. Sadly it appears to still be DBG...

    42126 - Ford F150 Raptor

    Yeah definitely. At least we'll also have clean, unprinted arches unlike the with the Porsche RSR.
