2012 Technic Prices


There is some discussion on the internet estimating the prices for the three as-yet-unreleased Technic sets of 2012.

We thought we’d weigh in with our predictions, following our previews of all three sets earlier in the year (type ‘preview’ into our search feature at the bottom of the page to read the reports). We were deliberately vague with our pricing information until now, which probably hasn’t helped those of you trying to work out how much to save!

We’re basing our estimations on three factors:

  1. The piece count and piece type of the new model
  2. Lego’s ‘build to a price’ approach
  3. Model predecessors

Inputting this information into our enormous and very complex super-computer gives us the following results. Drumroll…

9393 Tractor: £34.99 – £39.99,
9396 Helicopter: £79.99 – £89.99,
9398 Rock Crawler: £149.99 – £159.99

So there you have it – some completely unofficial and possibly inaccurate prices.

Have we got it right? – Add your views in the comments.
