One thing I notice, is that the hype about new LEGO set releases (Technic in particular) is getting so high, that the time the fans need to dissect a model, once some new images debut online, is getting shorter and shorter. Incredibly shorter I'd say!
And this is so evident, that today it took much less time than I needed to write a post about all the new images, for others to have found and documented online several new parts.
So lets take a look...
Jovel Vlem sent me the image below left, for a new connector type, found in the 8047 Mini Excavator and tractor from 8049 Log Loader. But found it also reported into another image at LOWLUG forum (below right).
An old wish, at the Barman's wish list at Brickshelf.
Also Jovel Vlem, sent me the image below with the finding about a new 4L axle with stop, also on 8047 mini Excavator.
8047 Mini Excavator Linear Actuator bracket acting as a gear box.
To me it looks more like a redesign of the 20 tooth bevel gear (32198).
And for sure, you have noticed the more than evident new very small panels, on the 8047 Mini Excavator, 8048 Buggy and 8045 Mini Telehandler.
Is that tan axle, on the left image from the 8047 Mini Excavator, a new color variant for the Technic Axle 3L with stud (6587)!? Or maybe a new longer version...
I've also red about a new gear rack (7L) being used for the tractor steering, at the 8049 Log Loader...
Are you happy, with all these at once?
Here an update with Jovel Vlem theory about the 7L gear rack.
It makes sense at least, I'd say!
