Only two days ago the first image of the upcoming 8047 Compact Excavator appeared, and now also two other 1H2010 sets show up to the public!
On this Flickr set there are many pictures of upcoming sets, among which there are the 8046 Helicopter and the 8048 Buggy.
From the colour pattern, I assume this is a rescue helicopter. That would explain the two knobs on its left side: probably one for the rotors (why not a crank, why?!) and one for a winch (which can actually be seen on the Buggy pictures below). It would be silly to have a knob for the main rotor and another one for the tail!
It looks an evolution of the 8296 Dune Buggy, with front suspension added. From one of the pictures, we can see at the rear a glimpse of a piston engine; let's hope there's also rear suspension!
So, three out of five new sets have shown their faces, all of them medium-sized. So, there are still left to be seen the smallest and the largest sets for next semester… can't wait for those!
Meanwhile, other pictures by ForceMaster appeared in Eurobricks, which clear some doubts about these new sets, especially the V4 motor, rear suspension and functional steering wheel on the Buggy.
