LEGO announced the flagship Technic model of this year at Spielwarenmesse 2019 in Germany – it will be a Liebherr R 9800, one of the largest excavators in the world. The LEGO Technic 42100 set consists of more than 4,000 parts, seven motors and two Smart Hubs.
This confirms that the Technic variation of the Powered Up hub will have 4 ports compared to the 2 ports of the current “City” Powered Up hub.
The model will be equipped with LEGO Technic CONTROL +, apparently the Technic variant of the Powered Up system. It’ll have new electronic components and an associated free app with controlling and programming possibilities.
According to the news the price will be 449.99 EUR
Last year we saw the first sets appearing with the new Powered Up components expected to replace Power Functions, we have Boost as well belonging to the same ecosystem. As you’ll be able to buy most of these components separately at shop.lego.com soon I took a look what we have at the moment, how they work with each other, are there any alternatives to have a wider range of control options (sure!) and what I am expecting to see in the future. Let’s check the video:
Speed build and review about the B model of the LEGO Technic 42092 set, the Concept Plane. This model looks very promising especially considering the limited part selection, check out all the details in the video:
Speed build and review of the LEGO Technic 42095 B model. This version has a much better weight balance, but it does not use the full potential of the L motors as they are driving the smaller front wheels by default. Can it be easily improved? Sure, check the video!
Unboxing, Speed build and review about the LEGO Technic 42092 Rescue Helicopter. It has some cool features and functions including spinning rotors, opening side and rear doors, working winch and a rescue stretcher. Check out all the details in the video!
