    [Review] 42061 Telehandler

  2. I have not done a review in ages so I thought I would do my take on a review of a technic set (some of you may remember some of my past reviews) from one of many unopened sets I have laying around. Name: 42061 Telehandler Theme: LEGO Technic Year: 2017 Parts: 260 Price for set: £24.99 / $39.99 / 29.99€ The Packaging Not much to say here.....its a small box made from cardboard with a picture printed on it,all be it a glossy picture. The Manual In the left hand is a 7 long light brush grey axle while in the right is a 8 long axle,who needs diagrams? The Parts Upon opening the box I was relieved to find it was not empty and it contained something.....two instruction manuals. Here are some interesting parts,I really like the new worm gear.I am however not a fan of the colour vomit. Happy birthday to you happy birthday to you happy birthday to you Lego Technic happy birthday to you. The Build Right lets get always I like to sort my parts. I did not capture much in terms of building it is as you would expect for a small set. Construing the boom Here we are at step page 25....not much to say really. The Finished Model And Final thoughts Here is a picture of it finished driving past ,that is why the picture is a bit blurry as it was travelling a a good speed. I don't like how they did the rear upper part of the boom. Is it just me or are Lego's take on seats getting more weird? So the functions in this set include: 4 wheel steering 1 stage telescopic boom Boom lifting Boom tilting I am sure you would like too see a size comparison,and if it can lift anything? Spare parts and parts list So too wrap up my review I would say it is a good little set,it come with some rather useful parts. All the functions work well an has a decent level of playability too it. I am disappointed by the rear of the boom but apart from that it is a good little set. Scores: Parts 7/10 Playability 7/10 Design 5/10 Appearance 8/10

    I guess so.Although I think I would of left if squint, just for a laugh. See that middle cable that is higher than the rest(two cables),you could keep it down level with the rest by using a small extension cable to the receiver port instead of the motor cables.

    One of those receivers does not look very secure,German engineering is failing.

    Here are some example bar pieces you could try (just to break up the front window).

    How about using a bar piece to divide between the top and bottom window? Looks fab so far.

    Technic 2017 Set Discussion

    *Coughs* Hi kid's,I somehow missed the entire discussion and release of the 2017 line....upon seeing these photos of the winter sets I think I needn't of bothered joining the discussion at this late stage. The tow truck sounds good but it does not live up too expectation once seen in the photos.I am disappointed too see that Lego have not used the new pneumatic elements again, *While making monkey face* I am sure Allanp is thrilled to see the continued use of those "grey mechanical alternatives". Of the entire 2017 line I think the small telehandler (42061),construction crew (42060),Container yard (42062) and the research boat (42064) looks the most appealing and they are already out,I say roll on 2018....
