  1. That would look quite nice though

    It is more challenging to design a model with already existing parts, since you can't just design a new part when it is needed. Using already existing parts results in very clever parts usages, and I think it makes the final model more interesting. Even though new parts are interesting and exciting, lack of new parts isn't something that reduces the quality of a set in my opinion.

    Finally received mine after backordering a couple of weeks ago. Fortunately the box arrived in perfect condition, I've seen that some received damaged boxes. After waiting the entire summer, I don't really want to complete the build in just 5 hours. I think I'll do one or to numbered bag per day.
  4. Funny because the hook was the part that took the longest time to find for me as well. I actually think some parts were a little tricky to assemble as well. Especially attaching the axles to the rest of the chassis.
  5. I don't think we are expecting too much from it, but it will certainly not be the flagship. As you mentioned, it will most likely be a medium set with usual size for 1H flagships. I imagine it to be similar to 9397, but with more parts, more advanced functions and better looks.

    The Saturn V is now available for back order at S@H. Estimated shipping date is September 6.
  7. I feel like the design style of many technic sets changed when this year's lineup was released. Many sets are less complex then usually and especially the smaller sets don't look that good in my opinion. Even though these pictures are just preliminary, and things will most certainly be changed, it seems to me like this new design language is used in next year's lineup as well. I think the 42035 Mining truck is a good example of a small simple model, aimed at younger children, that still looks pretty good to me. This year's, and next year's smaller models are different. I don't think this has to be wrong, but the new sets just don't appeal to me. I don't usually buy the smaller sets, so this doesn't bother me that much. I really think the MACK truck will be great, the licensed sets are usually very good ones. The rally car might be a nice set as well, I'm pretty sure the design will change a little. I think it will be similar to the 42039 both in terms of size and functions. I have also good hopes that the super ultimate car project will be awesome.
  8. I have experienced the same problem today
  9. It's nice to finally get the 11x5 panel in dark bluish gray with the dozer
  10. Probably true, dark azure actually looks good in most cases, but I am pretty sure they will keep the regular blue as well.
  11. I guess you have the information you need already but it doesn't work in Safari for me either Wait... now, after posting, it worked. Strange...
  12. Nice review! I actually like it more than the A-model.
  13. Have finally received and built this model. Since the first pictures were shared, this model has grown on me, and is now by far my favorite of 2017. The model really does look better in real life, than on pictures and videos. The stickers and the purple-black-yellow color scheme actually works quite well. This model doesn't have as much color vomit as many other recent set, especially this year´s summer sets. The chassis is mostly built with grey colors and looks really good. The suspension is realistic, and fun to build. The winch is clever and the doors are really cool. However, the finished model is not as interesting as I thought it would be. It feels much more like a toy than Technic sets of this size usually do, with almost 2400 parts this is the fifth biggest Technic set so far in terms of part count. It's probably the lack of PF and/or pneumatics that makes this set feel less advanced than many other large sets, but children will enjoy playing with it as Jim mentioned in the review. I still really enjoyed the set, the value is very good, you get many useful and fairly new parts for a very good price. I also made a quick demo video to show all features of it. I received my copy rather late, and I suppose most members here already have seen several videos of it, but I'll just share it anyway.
  14. I'm using Safari, and it's the same as last time. I can vote, and then the poll disappears. If I reload, I can vote again but not show any results. Also - this is not on topic, but don't know where to ask - The technic forum has the same look as on the phone right now. Is it meant to be so, or is it just for me? Sorry, mobile look with desktop layout. No header and blue and white colors.
  15. I think you might be right Jim. They clearly have something very special planned for the next year. I found this on the Swedish AFOL forum:
