    Future Set Wishes and Speculation

    For those who don't know what I meant by a snow groomer, look at this project on lego- ideas ! https://ideas.lego.com/projects/92a799ad-afbc-4191-996b-d3575632dee4

    I loved 8070 but I would love that Lego stopped on cars for a bit ! It becomes way to repetitive !!! very little new functions and that is what lego is all about !!! Don't take me wrong, I think that the idea of the Bugatti & Porsche is absolutely brilliant as a "UCS-like" serie and one every 2 years seems like a great idea but as a general set... please no ! I don't see them making another car in 2019 as they still have the one from 2018 on sale and they would both concurrence each other, making for poor sales !

    Good point but look at all the winter oriented sets that lego system/creator has created in the past and their large successes ! It makes sense but looking at other sets like 42069, BWE, ... it is doable (though not ideal !)

    Current large ones are big enough looking at the MOCs...

    All good, I have seen quite a few MOCs of the groomers even one on Lego Ideas but unfortunately lego seems to stay away from it for some unknown reasons ! It is a big machine that a lot kids love to play with miniatures and they are always super impressed when they see in real ! You can even get multiple types of front and back attachement like they did on the claas and the unimog I remember this set but I am hinting towards a PF set even maybe a flagship !!!

    42069 is NOT a snowcat. A snowcat, also called a groomer, is a machine used to groom the slopes of a ski resort, it got a front blade similar to the blade of the B model of 42054 but with monted a ball joint in the front for more angles, it also have a finisher in the back that spins to break big chunks and smoothen the slopes + some of them have a winch care arm mounted on a turntable in the back of the cab so they can pull themselves up steep slopes while pushing the snow up ! You can even have the cab tilting forward so you have direct access to the v8 engine below ! Great exemple here : https://www.google.ca/search?q=pistenbully+500&client=ms-android-rogers-ca&prmd=isvn&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiN2Oa3-tPcAhVVCDQIHeqKCxMQ_AUIESgB&biw=360&bih=560#imgrc=WsI7kvA4yAVYbM: But thanks, I do know what 42069 is as I own one !

    With all that talk about crawler and large track bases, what abput a snow cat with a winch. It could have some amazing functions that for once would be different than the usual cranes and cars !

    Official TLG sets only, in my mind

    Intrigued by the boat too. I don't think throwing tracked racer would be a snowmobile as we got 42021that was pretty recent !

    I guess that's just the 1h right ? Also are these price in USD or € ?
  13. Very down for a snow groomer as flagship!

    42055 - Bucket Wheel Excavator

    If you higher up in this thread you will find a video proving it does as well as a pretty good explanation of how BWE excavators work in the field. In that instance, I find the BWE pretty realistic!
  15. Why all that interest around cars & trucks, if TLG wants to attract more and more people they need to diversify and get big sets that are out if the ordinary ! Look at this year technic 2H, Ucs put apart, the sets are very different than simple cars or trucks. They are looking for function that have a point to be PF and I really don't think that PF opening doors or hood will attract a lot of new people ! I also agree that it may be too early to have a new CLAAS or any agriculture machine as Ondra has already pointed above. This is just my 2 cents !
