    42110 - Land Rover Defender

    OK guys drop the negative on this land rover, it dates back like 70 years. My dad had a 110 wheel base landrover in the 1970s, I loved it great to climb up into front when you are a 3ft 7 Yr old. I used to go to work with him climbing up a 7 ft ladder /door combo to get into his hgv tractor unit. This is a set to celebrate landrover, it deserves it for the years of work for famine relief over the decades and other good work. The military side does not need celebration, its a workhorse. My dad had to get rid of the landrover because my mother could not climb into it and couldn't drive it. It was my father's toy πŸ˜‰ Il

    42099 - 4x4 X-treme Off-Roader

    1PU vs PF. PU has a battery with built-in Bluetooth. PU has Smaller connections. Wire grips also compatible with PF. Range of Bluetooth 4 is 66m vs infra-red is 10m (bad problems with sunlight). PU motors do seem better shaped. PF needs separate controller and infra-red receiver. As a 51 year old PF user, I welcome the new system which I will keep separate until TLG introduces a cross over connector. I was brought up using both imperial and metric systems, so I can easily adapt between migrating systems, so no complaints. STAY CALM AND BUILD LEGO.

    42100 Liebherr R9800 Excavator

    There are six cable holders in that picture off the underneath of the model, 2 red 2 green and 2 yellow. I would say possibly even more hidden inside of it

    They might have the strength of the large bucket /shovel might have a weakness in the design and might involve a slight redesign. That's just a guess, but it's a one off part on an expensive set.

    Grum's Shed

    I rebuilt 42030 using effermans redesign after I found out the lego one was not so good, 10 out of 10 for the redesign works a treat.
