Fresh from the Nuremberg Toyfair
There seems to be some information around about the autumn Technic sets for a little while. Now, from the Nuremberg Toyfair some video footage occured on YouTube.
42029 – Customized Pickup Truck
It has several functions, like suspension on all wheels and a tipping function for the flatbed (afaik). Also it has a lot of red pieces and panels, which seems to make it at least a good parts pack. It even has the new version of the curved and flat 3×11 panels in red, which is a new color for these pieces. Perhaps we’ll see a 42009 in red, soon.
42030 – Volvo L350F Wheel Loader
This is the new flahship model. And as the Unimog before, it is licensed.
It is a remote controlled wheel loader. It features several motors, two remotes and receivers and several linear actuators. It also has a brand new bucket, yellow big rims and “green” engine pieces.
Also, there is some video footage of the wheel loader in motion:
I definately need to get the new wheel loader. Lots of PF parts and I can finally go for remote controlled models. I am not yet sure about the pickup, but probably I’ll get this one as well. Also, I am curious if there will show up some other new sets for the upcoming fall.
