Exciting news! But not if you’re a lover of the old Lego horse. Lego has decided that our favourite plastic companion needs an update, and so the old Lego horse, released way back in the ’80s, is to be retired. Its replacement is a more detailed creature, and Lego have added a great big dollop of poseablilty too, so it can rear up, jump, and generally be a more playable element. We’ll see the new horse in stores later this year.
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:
The piece count and piece type of the new model
Lego’s ‘build to a price’ approach
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.
