    42113 Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey

    I would assume they would still be paying Bell the licence fee as that will have already been negotiated. Renaming the set they will lose any tie up marketing and may have to pay Bell more if part of the licence cost was brand advertising for Bell. Stopping the whole set would be a much bigger financial hit and they will still have all the costs and no sales plus more cost if they have to dispose of the set's they have already made.

    So with it only 2 weeks form it's original release Lego must be sitting on a large stockpile and some must have went to stores that's a lot of money even for Lego to have tied up. They can't just dump all that plastic. a recall will be even more expensive even if they can get that info to all stores in a week. I think at best they could drop the licence name and just call it a generic rescue plane as the before with the 42066 they got away with that as it's not a named machine.

    42113 Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey

    Seems to have been dropped from the Lego site so I think we can say that this will not be coming out anytime soon which is a big shame as it seemed the best set in the 2H for new parts / value.
  5. Rebrickable has a lot to offer but sports cars seem to be the most popular.
  6. The instructions are now available through Rebrickable Here

    Technic 2020 Set Discussion

    I hope that the powered up remote 88010 works with the new bell battery box as would seem crazy that they would use different internal hardware from the powered up hub as there essentiality same but with a stud / stud-less deigns.

    Technic 2020 Set Discussion

    I think Lego are making more of a push of Technic in the US as it's been weaker there than Europe. I think that's the reason we got Dom's charger in Technic not as a creator as an avenue to bring fans of the film to Technic. Also a lot more American licenced sets the Corvette, Mac and now Bell.
  9. I did build in irl just my photo skills are worse then the CG render also I don't have all the right colours so it's using Blue seats atm. Very nice i was looking at the original 8845 and yes it starts grey then black so you are correct but i quite like the black to finish on the grill
  10. yeah that's a bit of a problem the original used plates which were 1/3 high and now we have beams that are 1/2 high you can add another but then it's a bit to high at the front.
  11. Thanks for that I had missed that they had rubber colours now i have to re-render all my other models as they also have shiny tyres I did this one quickly.
  12. As the 8845 was my first ever Technic model i decided to give it a redesign to modern stud less design. I have tried to keep it as much like the original as possible. This was awkward for the steering as that is 10 studs wide and steering for Technic is all odd, 7 long racks or limited like on the Corvett 42093 and the Race Kart 42048. The wheels are a bit oversized but i don't think Lego do anything closer. and the rear cargo area is a bit gappy. Hope you like it You can get some free instructions here

    42107 - Ducati Panigale V4R

    Not for this but for future applications. The previous damper just uses a simple rubbed collar to create friction on the return which could have easily been added to it with minimal cost. I think the original damper was discontinued for two reasons they were bulky and the first version for the Super Street all broke as the rubber they used was not very good and so they had to replace them. Normal Lego practice the chain is always a bit saggy you can remove a link but then that will put a bit more stress on it so they always play safe, and it's easier to connect if you don't have much dexterity.

    I now have the set what are peoples thoughts on the front shocks? They seem like there just covered springs and no dampening effect winch I find a little disappointing.
