More images from '2008 American International Toy Fair', running in NY (cont.)

Now we started to get flooded by images from new 2008 sets, coming from Toy Fair (NY)... ;)
Thanks to Cagri! Who commented on the previous post about these new images at flickr.

I'll post some below which bring new perspectives, details, info, etc...
Later (instead of creating new posts) I will add here other photos, whenever they bring something new that justifies it.

8294 - Escavator

The image on the left, is an high resolution one. If you click on it, you will get the full image where you can see many interesting details, never seen before.
Specially details for the new Linear Actuators and connections.

Below some more images at moderate resolutions (or higher) with perspectives and details probably not seen before (also click to enlarge).











8295 - Telescopic Handler

The image on the left, is an high resolution one. If you click on it, you will get the full image where you can see many interesting details, never seen before.
Specially details from the new Linear Actuator and around.
Linear Actuator "piston" doesn't look like a screw anymore and seems now to be metallic.

Below some more images at moderate resolutions (or higher) with perspectives and details probably not seen before (also click to enlarge).




8297 - Off Roader

The image on the left, is an high resolution one. If you click on it, you will get the full image where you may see some details.
Don't know the model length, but from the steering wheel size, it should be relative smaller than usual LEGO supercars.

Below some more images at moderate resolutions (or higher) with perspectives and details probably not seen before (also click to enlarge).


Edit:
FBTB.net shows us a new video from the Off Roader, at Toy Fair (see it here).
In this
we can see also, fast and partial images from the Telescopic Handler.


Concerning the US Suggested Retail Prices (SRP), we have:
  • 8293 - $29,99
  • 8294 - $59,99
  • 8295 - $89,99
  • 8297 - $119,99

Also take a look on the images below, which show some new Bionicle sets.
The 2nd half 2008 Bionicle sets will introduce some new panel fairings, which look compatible with the current TECHNIC panels. These new panels may be very useful into TECHNIC constructions, because they are straigth and have pin holes on both ends.
They were seen before in some preliminary images from the new sets boxes, but these now are real and shinning. ;)

That panel was the first thing I noticed :) I thought it was a "surprise" Technic model but then I found out it's Bionicle. Neverthless, it looks like a good set. I already found a use for the panels! Now all I have to do is .. wait ..

Yes, these are much better pictures. Thanks to Ace at FBTB.net for these excellent high-resolution images.

It's clear now that the "piston" on the LA is made from metal, and it looks like it can carry more weight than the Technic large pneumatic cylinder.

I'm dissapointed that the 8294 Excavator is so much like the 8419 (e.g. manual rotation, bucket and arm movement linked, etc). However, it appears that there is one additonal degree of freedom on the arm, and some clever mechanism to switch between arm extension and arm lift.

Hmm, I thought the linear actuator worked differently, with a non-sliding axle inside the cylinder making the screw go in and out, but it turns out I was wrong...
Apparently, inside the cylinder there's the screw (hopefully metallic, to stand high forces) connected to the ouside axle. That screw then interfaces with a hollow (judging by the pictures, also metallic) tube, which doesn't rotate but instead just goes in and out.
One point towards realism! I don't see many hydraulic actuators with screw-like pistons... ;-)

Preliminary box pictures showed the actuator pipe like a big worm gear. But the smooth pipe looks better!

Uauuu, they're all great i'll need a second job to buy all these Technic 2008 sets, congratulations for the magnific LEGO® Sets.

Valve actuators are really needed for complex tasks in the high power market.If the load requires accurate positioning, the electric actuators as well as the valve actuators has the advantage among others.That is why,to familiarize yourself in this kind of industrial application , knowing how an automation works is a wisely action and will positively keep us in track.
