  1. I can confirm that my kids love playing with the BWE. Size must have something to do with it, but I think it’s mostly because of dropping bricks in buckets and watch them going all the way to the back, and then catching them with the mining truck. Had to buy a 42035 to keep them from fighting...;) 42070 was a favourite as well, but that would really have been a lot better if it was fully remote à la 8043. That would have justified the price tag better, too...

    ...associative thinking, but your comparison with 42043 gives it some pun, too...
  3. After viewing 42082-B on a bigger screen I must say I like it, despite using the same undercarriage. I've never seen a model like this in Technic (or any Lego) before and the convoluted way the rope is used looks very interesting. I also suppose it has to be able to make some kind of sudden drop, I wonder if and how that will be done...
  4. It looks in fact like also the superstructure is the same, and just the boom is rebuilt. Which looks like a cheapo, though the functions seem pretty cool.
  5. Because you’ve made your point perhaps? Dozens of times already?
  6. When quoting a lengthy post with the purpose of asking critical/rhetorical questions, you'd better get your facts right. The box weighs around 6 kg, as mentioned in the Brickset review. Heavier than 42055, by a bit...
  7. +1. I think we’ve seen more than enough for now. Patience is hard to come by these days...
  8. Very nice, I wonder if Lego consulted him for the gearbox design of the Bugatti... And nice to see Alice Cooper is still alive and kicking

    Perhaps this model as a whole is a teaser, because of the new pneumatic switches. I mean, TLG won’t develop a new switch to only use it in a medium sized model, so I suspect next year’s flagship will contain a lot more of them. Until then, that new switch might persuade a lot of people to buy this set, despite of only two pneumatic functions and other (debatable😉) shortcomings.
  10. Looks like you’re right...thought I found something new, but alas. Although there still could be a cage between/behind the two laters of curved gear racks...
  11. Could this part (looks like a bent axle/pin connector) be part of the bearing’s cage?
  12. Make that one fifth, I know...😉
  13. On the one hand, yes. On the other hand, 8460's outriggers had no trouble at all lifting the machine...
