    42100 Liebherr R9800 Excavator

    FYI: On sale at Toyco.co.nz in NZ for $799. Interestingly, not listed under the Limited Edition section, so likely will be 20% off within a week or two, as per their usual sales, and possibly 25% off in run up to Christmas. They don't yet have 42110 listed.
  2. This is really nicely done. Beautiful panel work! Does the blue gear rub against the wheel at all (it seems only held in place by the wheel?)

    42110 - Land Rover Defender

    The slope piece isn't holding the door shut - the black piece behind it is doing that. The slope piece is just to make it easier to close.

    42110 - Land Rover Defender

    My bet is it's one of these (first in 42078 I think?) It's in the pinhole of a 7L black thin liftarm. https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=24201

    42110 - Land Rover Defender

    Milan has done an awesome job on this one! I wonder if it has Ackermann? A few shots in the video suggest it, but can't see the mechanism. Super happy to be getting the wave selector, blue clutch and yellow extender in this set, plus D/N/R, 4 speeds and hi/lo - excellent!

    42110 - Land Rover Defender

    I like the use of those new 3x3 crossblock pieces for the engine.

    42110 - Land Rover Defender

    Given gearing seems to be done inside, it could be the steering is inside only too, and the winch is the HOG on top? Still, seems a HOG could probably be added pretty easily. Am looking forward to this one!

    Building a better lift

    By the looks your lift won't align with your diamond pattern as you have it? Why not instead have the lift be a 4x4 plate (or larger if needed) aligned normally? The 1x1 cylinders would then be in each corner and in the middle, and it'd pop up a cross-shaped platform on the 45. That way everything is on grid so nice and easy to do.

    Price per Piece - An outdated idea?

    Is there a dataset available with weight, price, number of pieces, year, licensed, electronics etc? I guess with brickset/rebrickable pulling down the data would be reasonably easy? Once done, model price with everything available and then take a look at outliers to refine things.

    42099 - 4x4 X-treme Off-Roader

    Pretty much every store in NZ has it available. One for 15% off already. 20% off the other two sets. Usually we're usually behind the rest of the world e.g. we only got the Mustang about two months ago. I'll wait for 25% off :)

    42099 - 4x4 X-treme Off-Roader

    Available today for sale in NZ at Toyco for NZ$419 (no discount). So cheaper than 42082 was ($499). Lot of $ for the pieces. (42097 and 42098 also available, at 20% off). It'll likely be available with a 20 or 25% discount there before end of year.

    42098 - Car Transporter

    I thought the little wheels might be the stand for the trailer, but it doesn't need them given the wheel spacing. Definitely a mechanism there - will be interesting to see what it is.

    42110 - Land Rover Defender

    42110 wil be similar density to 42069 - about the same size, and similar part count. Not as dense as 42083 which was IMO way too dense (too many parts with no real purpose) but still nicely form locked. I recall taking 42069 apart required a bit of thought to the order of it - a good indication of form locking.

    General Part Discussion

    Yeah - I assume the existing rims will fit as well (e.g. the rear could just be two rims side by side maybe?) I'm guessing there's a brake disc or something on the other side of the front wheel, given the LBG pin there?
  15. Love the race car - really nice use of the parts available!
