    4.5v Motor Variations

    Looks more like improved and/or more cost efficient production to me. I think booth spindels use a outer plastic sheath and an inner metal core. The older one on the left have to be manufactured with a blind hole, which is slightly more labour intensive than to drill through. But its just a guess...

    I'd always had a weakspot for candys, too... :-)

    42100 Liebherr R9800 Excavator

    As its somehow related to the 42100; Liebherr showed a new dump truck at the bauma: Liebherr Bauma (at around 4:24) Maybe this one will be the next model complementing the 42100? On the other hand, as the 236 is the smallest of the Liebherr dump trucks, maybe the bigger T264 will fit better according to the size: Data Manual T264

    I think it was already mentioned in the forum, and also my oppinion: You can build a face showel (Model A) and a backhoe variant (Model B). Like the 42082, the main chassis would stay the same, just the arm is built differently.

    I think there is a little bit more behind this. At first, TLC wants to run a profitable business, therefor they look at the sales figures. If bigger models sale well, they do more of if. Also the technic fanbase, and not only aduits, built bigger MOCs, which is a definite sign, there is a community that wants bigger technic models. The other point you are making is maybe more logical if you consider, that at first the Technic branch should be more accessible to a bigger community, where some haven't had any experience with Lego Technic at all. Therefor if a complete newbie choose a new, big Technic set, he or she should be able without any problems, to build this one according to the given manuals. It would be a real bummer if you make a single mistake because of a poorly or rushed build pic in the manual which then leads to a complete failure of the functionality. Coming back to the 42100, it would be kinda depressing to rebuild 1000+ bricks just to correct one failure because of a missed pin. In regards to this, older models needed more experience and maybe were 'harder' to build, but also had less complicated building techniques and way less bricks, so mistakes were faster/easier to fix. On the other hand, i agree to a certain point, that the manuals should increase a little bit in difficulty, especially when it's officially stated there is a "complex building experience" for some big models.

    Actually I don't know why there is is so much hate about the controls via smartphone. Actually I would be mad, if they include a special controller for 60+ €/$ just for this set. Then everybody would say: "Hey why no control via my smartphone???" A simple app is so much better to calibrate and way more universal than a monstrous control for 7 functions. And as already said: Nowadays, everybody has a smartphone or could buy a used one for 50 € if really needed. It all depends how well the app is programmed, that is my only concern.

    Future Set Wishes and Speculation

    For the excavator, I'd love to see a front-shovel excavator: https://www.mining-power.de/images/bagger/okrh400/rh400_12.jpg If we really talking about a big model, the bucket should be made out of several pieces, not like the single-piece buckets we know of. The pivoting triangle for the lifting mechanics would be very neat to watch :-)

    42093 Corvette ZR-1

    Its really strange: If it isn't a functional element and just a beam, why should it be yellow? Also in the video, i could not spot any holes. And if it is a normal shock absorber, then its even stranger: The yellow ones are the hard ones (Part 731c04), so two of them in such a light set means a reeelly hard suspension which would not make any sense at all. And also i dont spot the typical grooves on the sides. Maybe we get smaller shock absorbers? 4.5 studs would be great!

    42094 Tracked Loader

    I think its for opening and closing the claw. The lower gear is fixed so, so when you pull the red bush forward, the claw closes while tilting down a little bit.

    42093 Corvette ZR-1

    The biggest bummer really is the front end. Try this: Just cover up the front end part of the picture with your hand and you really can tell: "Whoa! That's great, its a Vette!" and then uncover the front end... "WTF? Have they used leftover parts?" The front part is really the most iconic part of nearly evry car and should be handled with great priority. Also a really big design flaw in my opinion is the air outlet on the side (black strip just in front of the door). Why did they use a sticker? I mean there is a panel, leaving exatly that shape in the right place and the fender which also fits. Just get rid of the 3L lift arm in front of it and replace it with a smaller part (two studs wide).

    My 2 Cents for the models according to the videos of LEtsGO: 42089: From the looks, nice reminiscent to the 6679. Also nice black panels and for 15€ a nice price tag. But it seems only ONE function? Motor connected to propeller driven by the wheels. I mean... really? Not even a steering like the 42064...? 42092: My favorite so far. Very nice looks for such few parts. Clean look but clearly identifiable as a technic model with resonable amount of functions: Winch, main+back rotor, back+side doors. A tilting of the blades can't be done on such a scale, of course. 42095. Maybe fun, but horrible looks... a pass for me.The big sprocets may have an internal gearing? 42096: The big bummer are the headlights and again few functions. Can totally agree to Seasider: But for a licensed model, the price is really ok. I actually like the looks of it.

    Ok the heli looks really good. Does the 42090 and 42091 have a pullback-motor or something like that? The rear axle and the housing looks strange. Or like a 24 Le Mans car. Has nothing to do with a police car imho.

    I don't really get the idea behind the release dates of TLG... It's like they try to miss out the christmas season. Why not releasing the catalog end of November together with the new models? The catalog is usually out in january, right? Still exited to see all the new technic models :-)
