  1. I suspect the Porsche is RC, there is not a presence of HOG steering knob, I guess those greyish parts peeking at the rear end of the set are XL motors or probably PF 2.0. Afterall the box is just a mockup and the final/ full reveal of the set's true colors is yet to come.
  2. Thanks! I wanted to buy the Claas and Porsche sets but wasn't sure as to how much each paycheck I need to save. I need $500 over 5 months to get these 2 sets, hopefully Lego adjusts the prices in US Dollars so there's a more definite information.
  3. I was pertaining to the HOG steering knob, this model has none of that which makes me think its an RC set, RC or not it's cool.
  4. Porsche is the coolest then the Claas comes next. It can't come any closer to a Lego, sure Tamiyas are fast and cool too but a model you can transform or modify to anything you like is cooler and Lego has that.
  5. I would love to see it sporting Martini or Gulf racing livery, but silver with acid green accents is excellent too!
  6. 42056 doesn't show any awkward looking knob for HOG steering but then I might be wrong, Lego pulled off a stunt by integrating HOG steering in the Aroc's beacon lights but that is a truck so its easy the Porsche is a sports car so sticking a knob in the model is not a wise move for Lego. Following the cycle of RC and non RC sets, the last RC set was the Volvo L350F so the Porsche 911 is a logical successor. I hope this will display PF 2.0 but regardless 42056 is gorgeous looking.
  7. The Arocs is still a beauty for me, I modded the tipper bed by making it taller just the Meiler-Kueppe tipper body. I guess it's more on one's preference as to what set is good looking or worth the money buying. As with the other sets in this summer lineup only 2 will find their way home to me: 42054 Claas Xerion and 42056 Porsche 911 GT3 RS.
  8. I know the 42056 is going to be a Porsche 911 GT3 or GT3 RS but what of the B-Model? is this a one and done model just like the 41999? or a 911 Cabriolet will be the alternate build?
  9. The BWE is too much, I'm always fond of buying supersize sets but it has to be a big truck or car so even if it has the functions or highest parts per price count I'm not counting on it. The Claas and Porsche are the must buys for me, trimming down my Lego spending and focusing on the sets I really like will make my collection more composed. If the 42054 Claas Xerion has the right sized tire to fit in my 41999 and 8110 Unimogs (especially those without rubbing at the wheel wells) I'll get an extra pair of those to make them look tougher. The wasn't expecting the 911 TBH but so far in it's GT3 RS form combined with AWD and a rear-mounter flat-6 engine this is going to be a sweet looking set. Looking at the video posted it seems the set has a proper steering system and what looks like bands connected to a paddle-shifter makes this an even more interesting set. The "prototype" look of the 42056 makes ma say Lego is probably doing some final work on the set which is obvious, we haven't even seen or know what the final color will look like or what of PF system with power it, from the box art I saw online it has LED lights upfront so its obviously an RC set. The set seems to be very large in scale, I never owned an 8880 so I don't know exactly how big we're dealing with this set. Lego has really outdone itself with the Technic summer sets.
  10. I read that the new Claas Xerion 5000 set has new tires/ wheels if those are enormous tires it makes a good candidate for replacement tires for my 41999.
  11. Not a big fan of tractors so I'm skipping this Claas Xerion model, I'm more interested with the Ultimate IP car given that it will spend most of it's time hidden from dusts in my storage I'm still excited to get one. I'm originally against the idea that its going to be a Porsche 911 GT3 because its not as ultimate as the 3 hypercars but given that it has a flat-6 engine, a design Porsche has refined through generations and a German pedigree in its back I might give it a shot. My fingers are still crossed for the Ford GT though it might be unlikely but who knows? It is an on and off program with 3 versions separated by years but each time it resurrects it just keeps getting better. Ferrari is still likely IMO, you have the LaFerrari, FXX K, or even the F12 berlinetta as pointed out earlier in the discussion, all possess different levels of refinement and technology reserved for exclusive clientele. Porsche 918 is another IMHO it also possesses technology, styling and performance reserved for an Ultimate car, even in its 918 RSR concept form it still looks exotic what more if Lego puts up a Martini or Gulf livery to it?
  12. It can't be a W Motors Lycan, aside from rare stones used in it's headlights, the car is an exclusive in Kuwait meaning it has not much brand recognition as big names like Ferrari McLaren or Porsche or even Ford with it's Mustang, GT, and F-Series nameplates. Considering that Lego has been toying with a Porsche 911 since the 42039 came out last year, it might seem to be plausible that the UIP car taking the guise of a 911 GT3 is likely though my fingers are still crossed for a Ferrari FXX K or a Porsche 918 RSR/ 918 Spyder.
  13. That 41999 (mine came w/ plate 19,691) was closer to an old Dodge Charger, the Mustang had a fastback design. The UIP Car might be closer to any of the 3 hypercars. If it's going to command a high price tag, Ferrari FXX or FXX K might be it, if not a Porsche 918 or 918 RSR is likely.
  14. I was still hoping for a Porsche 918 RSR or at least a Ferrari FXX K, yes the 911 is an iconic car but it is no where near being the ultimate car, preference wise probably it but in terms of technology and features, the 3 hypercars have those.
  15. If ultimateness is the name of the game, F40 seems logical as Jeremy Clarkson pointed out that it is the most beautiful car he's ever driven. Otherwise we're looking at one of the holy trinity hypercars making the upper ranks as the Ultimate IP Car.
