    Technic 2018 Set Discussion

    8880 supercar has 4 wheel steering. I know this because it is sitting on my lego shelf for 20 odd years now ? Sorry did not see someone has already mentioned the 8880 above

    Oh, that is a shame. Maybe I will hold off on the Mack until I come over. Thanks for the info Jim ?

    Technic 2018 Set Discussion

    I managed to google all the 2h sets. Although a bit grainy. I cant grasp the scale of the crane, so i have to hold my thoughts on this. Although if the piece count is that big, then it would compliment my 42009 nicely, especially in red. Volvo looks very interesting. I have 42030, so i am not sure I will get this. I do think I will grab the forklift as I do not have one yet Probably pass on the forest machine. But may change my mind when I see in person. It is going to be an expensive year for me especially if I want the Mack truck also. When do the 2h sets release in Europe? I am heading to Germany on holiday in April, so keen to hopefully pick up some good deals of these sets as they wont release here in New Zealand until August/September

    Eurobricks Event 2018 - Information Topic

    A wee bit off topic. I am from New Zealand coming to Germany and neighbouring countries in April. I am wondering if there is anything lego orientated things that I could do/ visit. Any ideas are helpful

    I like the look of the Rally car. I think this will be one of my first purchases in around 18months. It will sit nice next to my 8880. The Mack truck will also be on my list and am very interested to see what the 2h models will be. Might make up for the zero spending from last years 1h and 2h models
  8. Could have got 42043 for NZD$260 brand new but I didn't and ended up.paying $430 for it a year later. Have not sold anything yet but have been tempted to sell my full collection on occasion but have not been able to bring myself to do so

    I am sad. This year just does not do it for me, unfortunately. Roll on next year
  10. Finally got my set. It is a great build. I want to make a different implement, maybe a seed drill of some sort. The crane just does not do it for me, being a dairy farmer
  11. Finally, the 2h sets have been released in New Zealand. I can not wait to get my hands on this and the Volvo. Very excite
  12. Yes please!! Having not long ago finished 42043 to fill in time until this set is released, I am anticipating the arrival of this set on the shelves. I have been told it will retail for NZ$300. Excite! Really keen to create a different implement/s for it. Never watched one of your reviews Sariel but I thoroughly enjoyed. Kudos to you for a job well done!
  13. I experienced this within the first 30 minutes of starting my build on 42043, only it was a 20 tooth cog. Luckily I pilfered one off my 42009 so I could carry on....I then purchased off a trading site here in NZ to replace it

    42053 - Volvo EW160E

    My first pneumatics set was the submarine (many years ago) and just yesterday I finally bought the Arocs ( waiting with high anticipation!!). The Volvo is on my purchase list in second place behind the Claas
  15. Hello all, I am new to the forums but am keen technic lego builder. I like the look of the Volvo and the Claas and will get them. The question I hope someone could answer for me is what does the 1h 2h etc mean? and when will these sets be available for sale? I live in New Zealand and am keen for my next build. Thanks in advance
