For those who don't know, KKK is Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen*, third generation of the 'LEGO Family' and grandson of OKC who founded The LEGO Company.
On the video below we can see him at 58 (born December 27, 1947), at LEGOworld 2006 in Zwolle (The Netherlands), playing with an Excavator (LIEBHERR R964) and seems to be having a lot of joy with it... ;)
It is a MOC from Fabio Sali or Fabione (ITLUG) and more photos can be found here, or an additional video here.
His excavator was later modified to be at LEGOworld 2007, already with new PF elements replacing the classic 9V motors and the new treads from Snowmobile (8272) and Bulldozer (8275). Here you can see a few intermediate photos and a video after the modifications done.
And since we are talking about excavators, great choice from LEGO and good for us AFOLs, that are going to have this 2008, also a new excavator to play (8294). ;)
... and, can you see who was also there to have fun?
Yes, Markus Kossman himself! The creator of the 8412 (Mobile Crane) and 8275 (Buldozzer), just to give a few examples.
See a few photos below,
After the excavator, did you see what Markus was playing with, at the 2nd photo?...
- May it suggests what's next!?
- And that we could get a TECHNIC Tower Crane for 2009 (even if a smaller one)???
- Would you like to have one?
