2H10 Technic sets at Toronto Toy Fair

Probably you may have noticed from the calendar in the right column, that we are right in the middle of the Toy Fairs season, all over the world.

Toy Fair in Nuremberg is starting today, but London and Toronto Toy Fairs have just happened.
Thus is time for the first photos from the real models to debut. And here we have at Brickshelf the first ones from Toronto.

New angles, new details, some modifications.


8051: Motorbike, 467 parts



8052: Container Truck, 686 parts



8053: Mobile Crane, 1289 parts



8043: Excavator, 1123 parts



What will you find from these new pictures

Hm, first of all the mechanism to tilt the bucket is different than in the earlier box image. In my opinion the box is correct, at least looks better...

But you can see also that as anticipated two axles are going up the arm!! so all motors in the superstructure!

Looking forward to this one...

The bike looks great!

Sverre&Birgitte said...

Woha! These models looks really good imo. I´m buying all of them for sure. I can not say the same about the 2010H1 models. The bike looks really good and well built with a big engine. The container truck reminds me of the yellow cherry picker from last year, but looks so much better in blue! The crane looks nice, and I really like the black rims. Hope it´s possible to motorise it without sacraficing the original look. Does anybody know the size of it? Must be fairly large as there is 1300parts.
The excavator looks a little fragile, but nice anyway.The scoop looks way to big imo. Adding motors for all functions will be a nice challange I guess :)

Donutsftw said...

I'm with Anon, that bike looks like the coolest out of all these sets. Kinda wish it was a different color though, like orange or dark blue.

Still looking for that questioning piece from last Pictures. The double cross beam inverted black that went THROUGH the gears and Mech. Anybody remember that?

Anyway, great looking sets!

you can see on the excavator that`s are some part have bin change and construction from the box and picktier

PrimeNumbers said...

The excavator looks fantastic. I wish they'd bring back the little technic men to drive it though....

Anonymous said...

thet pearson hou have bouild the excavator have not use the boulding instroution to the excavator. some parts have bin bove and some part have bin change. i hope not the excavator should look like that.

Jernej said...

Are those new gearbox parts by tracks? They look flatter than LA brackets to me...

Anonymous said...

one question: haw can Motorbike have 467 parts and Container Truck only have 686 part. thats are only219 part in different that most be some of mistake.....

Jarren said...

All i have to say is: I WANT THEM ALL!

But seriously, the sets are awesome!

I wonder if the front and back wheels of the bike are the same, that was a big issue with its former model.

Conchas said...

@anon,

motorbike has mostly smaller parts, while the truck has larger ones.
It shouldn't be a mistake at this point.


@Jarren,

why was it an issue?
It is closest to the tires that real street bikes use.
Only the tire was different. The rim was the same.

One difference, and here one issue, was that the old bike used asymmetrical rims, while the new ones seem to be symmetrical. :)

Sumendar said...

Just built a mock-up of the arm based on these photos, looks like this will be a goldmine for U-joints, from the close-up it looks like the drivetrains for the linear actuators go through the two O-frames at the lower end of the boom, and are connected through U-joints to both this and the superstructure (that's 4 U-joints right there), then, we can see from the other photo, the axle for the further actuator goes through a #2 axle connector in the middle of the liftarm, so to get both the difference in angle and a one-stud lateral displacement to the O-frame, another 2 U-joints are needed. At the upper end, the joints of the liftarm, and therefore also of the axle system, are at the ends of the 5-long beams to which the LA bracket is connected. The other LA will probably need one or two more too, so the total comes to a whopping TEN U-joints.

Oh, and love the minifig signal pads on the sides of the seat :)

Conchas said...

Nevertheless, I must say the bike front and rear tires, look to be equal in this new model.

Junkstyle Gio said...

The Motor Bike and the Container Truck are my fave's. They are both a must-have for me. My onlineshop told me they are going to be available on july 30TH!
With a first glance at the 8051 motor i thought that the panels were going to be bi-colour. (Yet it's only the stickers...)
The 8052 Container Truck has an interresting tilting/tipper mechanism and i love the blue colour.
I'm a bit diappointed with the size of the 8043 Excavator. I hoped i would be bigger! But who cares with 4 (!!) motors.

The 8053 Crane Truck looks like a rehash of the 8421.... And i believe that one had a massive amount of pneumatics....
So this one is going to pass me by!

Anonymous said...

Looks good, but I really wonder why they don't use the standard hook on the mobile crane (?)

I also don't think they should make such a "half-hearted" mobile crane, this one looks just like a smaller and crappier copy of 8421. LEGO should have "saved" the mobile crane for later, and make a bigger and better flagship model. Maybe a lattice/boom crane... that would be awesome:D

Anonymous said...

locks they have maid a new type of "engine" and front sping suspension to the bike

Anonymous said...

From the box of the Excavator we can see that it has indeed the 2x3 functions. The movements of the beam or driving and rotating upper structure. That would be four motors in the upper structure with really nice mechanics!

RjbsNXT said...

Note the difference between the box and the actual thing?

Anonymous said...

i can see on the pictour that are about 20-30 new part on the new modell from the 2010 2H

julencin2000 said...

Some more pictures from the fair: http://krisabel.ctv.ca/post/2010-LEGO-Canada-Preview-Technic_subP.aspx

Regards people!!

Jarren said...

conchas:

I didn't like how the front and back was different, if you wanted to make a differential drive robot with those tires, you would have to get 2 sets.

RjbsNXT said...

Yep, the bucket is definitely controlled :D - also there are 4 universal joints transmitting 2 axles into the arm as was predicted.

N19h7M4r3 said...

I'm dissapointed... the bike doesnt have the 11.5L shock absorver... its the hard 9L absorver, the one in the 8466, which isnt a total lost since those only came in the 8466 to...

william said...

looking at the Excavator box I count Four motors and Five functions which means the bucket ant the stick probuble move together like in the previous model, as for the tracks why the hell would they only go forwards and backwards? They should add another receiver and Two more motors; I understand the cost, but the Millenium Falcon cost $500 and people still baught it.

Tobbe Arnesson said...

Very nice set of sets!

Oh, and love the blog too! Only found it yesterday. Keep us informed! :D

Parax said...

I have a bad feeling about the Excavator! Yes it looks like 2x3 but is it? the box picture only shows forward and backward drive, and not independant. could this be the case? I hope not!

The model is really poorly built theres bits wrong and bits missing all over the place.

mpj said...

But why so small photos?
We want high-res photos?! :-)

arezey said...

Anybody notice that in the pictures the excavator's twin actuators are not connected by axles at all?! Not that they wouldn't be in the final set.. just noting. :P

I seriously need to get that big thing. It gets cooler every pic I get to see.

arezey said...

... and now it's clear that the official name is Motorized Excavator and it has 1123 parts. yay!

The motorbike is also awesome. If I have any money left after the Excavator I may consider getting it..

Loader said...

Great!!!
I´m very surprised with the looks of the 8053 mobile crane =)

I think this model will be about the same size of the 8421, if not longer!

I can´t wait especially for this one!

Chili said...

The excavator has 2receivers and 4m motors! just watch the box.

arezey said...

Yesh, I was already hoping for an XL-motor or two. But who knows, even though it's ToyFair, preliminary remains preliminary. Who knows what the final one will be like?

Anonymous said...

Motorbike have 50 parts less den precursor, Container Truck have about 50 part less then cherry picker. Mobile Crane have 500 part less then the old one. Excavator have only 400 part more with pover functions then the old smaler excavator... I am disappointed on Lego...... I had higher expectation on Lego company on these model.

RjbsNXT said...

Maybe they'll stick another motor or two in before they release it... who knows? :)

"New angles, new details, some modifications"! What new angels? Sincle brick???

AVCampos said...

@Anonymous: every AFOL worth their salt knows very well that part quantity doesn't imply model quality.

@RibsNXT: I think switching an M motor for an XL one would be a too big change in design (not only their sizes are different, but also their mounting options) at this stage.

Anonymous said...

Does that Bike have a gear box ?
I can clearly see a shifter ?

mpj said...

Big photos from the toy fair!
Check also the whole album!
