What would YOU like to see from TECHNIC?

Kelly McKiernan (LEGO®), launched an informal poll at Lugnet for TECHNIC enthusiasts, to "hear" what type of TECHNIC vehicles would we like to see launched in the future.

Poll divides into several categories according the final product price range, like: 19,99€, 29,99€, 49,99€, 79,99€ and 129,99€.

Just a few unsorted inspiration photos, from the poll...

Now, its up to us, to go there and vote!

I would prefer to get a large Excavator.
May this would bring us new Power Functions pneumatic elements... ;-)

I'm sad that a helicopter isn't an option at the €49.99 or €79.99 ranges... I kinda miss the 8856 (Whirlwind Rescue), and aircraft aren't very common in Technic, unlike construction vehicles...
But there are plenty of them for a reason (besides being an opportunity to release yet another set in yellow...): they have a lot of moving parts and mechanisms, and one never has too many of them. Also, and I fully agree with you on this one, hydraulics-equipped machines are always a good chance to get pneumatics Power Functions on a model!

I tried to register at LUGNET some time ago, but the entry fee was too high... let's see if it changes in the future, but it won't probably be in time to vote on this poll. But, since I don't mind others knowing what I choose, here are my choices, from most to least desired:
€19.99: dump truck, buggy, quad (already done recently).
€29.99: snowcat (treads!), tractor, bike, quad.
€39.99: helicopter (aircraft!), snowcat, mobile crane (already many released).
€49.99: digger (as long as it has some pneumatics), dump truck, mobile crane.
€79.99: tractor with trailer (to go with the 8274), tractor with shovel, front loader, tractor with rear attachment (would look like an 8284 MOD).
€129.99: truck with crane (and plenty of pneumatics), container truck, mobile crane, bulldozer (would pale before the 8275).
