We’ve had the first wave of Technic sets for 2013, and they’re pretty good; although I still say that F1 car looks messy…
The real goodies arrive in August; have a gander at this:
It’s the 42009, Mobile Crane MkII, and has to be the most hotly anticipated Technic set since the Unimog. It’ll have over 2000 pieces and retail at around £150, according to the bush telegraph.
It seems to incorporate one power functions motor which can control any one of four functions via a gearbox. There’s a three piece extending boom, four steered axles and four linked stabilisers. All in all, a fitting follow up to the sainted 8421. Can’t wait.
As if that weren’t enough, feast your eyes on this:
Set number 42008, a very green recovery truck that’s pretty impressive, if a size smaller than the crane. It’ll probably be around £100.
There goes the summer holiday…
