    41999 problem

    My 8043 motorized excavator had faulty BB right out of the box and I was so angry that my 2.0 edition expensive excavator didn't work well. First I thought that problem came from M motors and I rebuilt it several times but nothing changed. Finally I tried BB change and that was it. LEGO customer service sent me a new one and now everyting is fine. LEGO has one of the best customer services. And PF BB is one of LEGOs worst products according to the feedbacks.
  2. Thank you for the information. I've just ordered mine from the same shop.

    Is there a better set than 8880?

    Well spoken

    Technic 2H2014 Reviews

    Outstanding video review Sariel (even with minor mistake regarding 8110). I enjoyed every moment of it, thank you.
  6. Probably agree but still waiting for my own copy to make final judgment on this. It can be outstanding in may ways...
  7. I agree, servo has nothing to do with reality. But on the other hand LAs have also nothing to do with reality. (Pneumatics + compressor could have been a good compromise IMO because a new hydraulic system for such a LEGO set would cost too much). But as for the reasons my thougths are: we live in the age of Power Functions, and the designer of 42030 simply wanted to give us an almost full assortment of PF and I think it was a nice thing doing so. The other main reason IMO was profitability and thrift regarding the servo mold and I'm sure this helps LEGO to produce a Technic flagship every year for us. I hope, with using train control, the steering will perform better.
  8. Excellent review, thank you! I want this set even more now but will not open it before Christmas Eve this year.

    Technic 2H2014 Reviews

    +1 waiting for your review Sariel very much. I'm into big yellow machnies and I'm sure at the end the 42030 will be considered a true and remarkable LEGO Technic flagship.

    How long will it be around?

    LOL. I'm sure of that. LEGO Technic dosen't go anywhere but on our shelves and placements of work. Or there will be sweeping demonstrations.
  11. As a Technic flagship collector IMO 8110 and 42009 were also true flagships according to my standards (9398 is a bit less what I would expect from a flagship but 41999 corrected it the right way). My standards are: innovation, authenticity, functionality, great design, and good value also in a long term.
  12. I opened my copy today and plate number is 16134.

    [REVIEW] 8275 Bulldozer

    I agree with every words you said. It has its own place in LEGO Technic history, it brought new level of enjoyment to children and adults as well, it is a brutal Technic construction machine which needs to be handled carefully. And don't forget the small red sticker on the original box, it is like "Toy Fair Winner of Innovation category 2007". This is quite something in my opinion.

    @Kumbbl: totally agree with you

    [HELP] Which Technic Set Should I Buy?

    Totally agree with Lundgren, buy them all. Then you will want even more. And if you ask me, 8043 is the best studless set so far.

    [C-MODEL] 8110 Jeep

    Thank you for the info, you are right, 8258 C-model is a beauty monster as well and I consider building it in the future. :) Although I would likeTLG to bring back more valuable alternative B-models as they did in the past with some of their flagships especially in the studded era (8480, 8880, 8862, 8868) where B-models where totally different but similar complex vehicles than A-models. From studless era 8258 and also new 42030 have good official B-models IMO.

    [C-MODEL] 8110 Jeep

    I like this alternative model very much, congratulations to the creator! I think LEGO should come out with better alternative models in the future...

    Technicopedia

    Dear Blakbird, I would like to ask that is "Technicopedia" still an ongoing project? Is there any plan for future revisions? Thanks and Happy Easter!

    Future Set Wishes and Speculation

    Well, I would like to see a proper successor supercar to 8880 and 8448 incorporating new designed elements and rare colour. Second whish is an orange european style garbage truck as a flagship with compressor & pneumatic. White container truck with lots of pneumatic as a flagship. Yellow grader with many functions either PF or pneumatic. And of course hauler and backhoe as flagship with proper functions.

    42028 Bulldozer Replica by D3K

    @D3K Your enanched model is actually better than the original one and much more authentic. Nice job!
  21. Totally agree, another missed opportunity. I will skip this one and buy the Volvo this year only. Thank you LEGO for sparing some money.

    42030 - Volvo L350F Wheel Loader

    Who knows? Seriously, I think it can happen. And many procurtement managers will buy this to their children and probably end with "how cool it is" "why our construction company doesn't use Volvos?" On the other hand it can be part of a brand development action and very good advertisement. Like JCVD splitting over the trucks.
  23. Agree. That would be really nice and pull back prices to earth. Anyway, is there any chance for a pneumatic bulldozer? Has anybody seen it yet somwhere?
  24. I defenitely like the new Volvo frontloader flagship, it is a PF paradise. The new bucket and those wheels are welcome. Yes, and this green fake engine really pumps up this modell.

    What I got for Christmas

    Got a 42009 for Christmas , I have to say I really like it, but it is not successor to 8421 in every way IMO.
