    I think TLG read our comments, and TLG would not give a flying hoot, because in the end this thing will sell like hot cakes.
  2. Not sure if safety video or Final Destination...
  3. What harm do protruding forks do?
  4. I don't think it's that common or uncommon.
  5. Because the space is cramped.
  6. As much as I want to support TLG, I don't wanna end up with a spare bucket, because I'm gonna have to throw it away sooner or later, and throwing away new Lego pieces makes me feel guilty. So I'mma buy 1 for the A and bricklink for the B.

  8. Maybe there aren't enough flat panels to make a longer bed.
  9. @Maaboo35 Can you check for PEGAX as well?
  10. Nah I don't think so. If it is something that has not been released officially in the public and is going to be released near the release of the set, I think TLG would not give away the whole image in the catalog that easily. Recall that the Mack Anthem was totally blacked out in the catalog. I don't think TLG would be so discourteous that they would spoil the design before the actual premier.
  11. I think this model serves as a prototype for Volvo. The fact that both codenames ZEUX and PEGAX aren't available as search results probably means these things haven't been unveiled officially.

    I like the white. Besides, a color scheme typically needs 2 back ground color and 1 accent color. E.g. 42055, DBG and Dark blue as background, and Yellow as ascent. Or 42052, white and DBG as background, orange as ascent. For this I'd make yellow and DBG as background and white as ascent. It's true that Yellow serves better as an ascent though.
  13. My guess: - Save space when parking - Balance the bucket when it's loading. The idea is that the bucket is heavy and near, so the counterweight needs to be light and far.
