2H2011 LEGO Technic sets listed

Brickset.com has now listed the new LEGO Technic sets for the 2H11.

According to this list, they will be:

  • 8071 - Bucket Truck
  • 8081 - Extreme Cruiser
  • 8109 - Flatbed Truck
  • 8110 - Unimog U400
    Let me speculate a bit... Having the highest set number, this seems to be the 2011 Technic flagship, and I'd guess it is a large TrTr vehicle with lots of parts and some new cool ones...
    From the indications that I've seen, its retail price will increase a bit, if we have the 8043 as a reference. Thus probably, some even more cool stuff in there.
    Some images if you want to see what an Unimog U400, might be...

Ooo, nice. I've seen the flatbed truck IRL, when I got a tour there. Obviously, I can't say anything about it. I hope the Unimog is orange/green, and without PF. But I think it's just a yellow/red RC Truck.

A unimog U400 isn't a very large vehicle. I can only assume that it will come with some type of machinery that it will be pulling?

It is very strange to see the name "Unimog" in that official list of sets. Indeed, Unimog is a brand of Mercedes.
So, does it mean that the 8110 is a licensed set ?
Possible...

I've only ever heard of Unimogs because of various AFOLs building them as MOCs, so I am quite curious to see what TLG does with it.
Given that I never saw that coming, nor did I see them ever coming out with mini-LAs, I'm pretty sure that they'll do something interesting with it.

I don't like the rather generic names though, as that makes it harder to speculate on what they could be :P

what the hell is an extreme cruiser


and at the right scale, the actualy set of the unimog could be quite big

Алексей said...

I think extreme cruiser might be a chopper-style bike or even a tricycle like 8857.

New tires (!!!!) and pneumatic !
Merry Christmas and a lot of patience... :-)

And also an orange cabin plus probably a compressor. (?)

A Unimog should be noted to be sold in little numbers without additional equipment. Most Unimogs are purpose-ordered vehicles. The machinery added to them can vary from railroad operations (including hauling cargotrains from one place to another), through sewer-operations, all the way to extensive snowplows (there's one in the Mercedes Museum with a massive snowplow).

So if Lego wants to do interesting with a big set with lots of operating and moving parts, and I bet they will, you won't have to expect a bare Unimog truck.

The Bucket Truck looks like someone forced the designers to use the white panels Lego is producing for the new 8068 Rescue Helicopter.

santi said...

Are those pictures sent by Bucu real?!?!?! The Unimog looks great! yet another source of pneumatics :D

Bucu said...

Taken from trade catalog, i think those pics are real.

Though people seem to be writing off the bucket truck as bland, I quite like it considering that it will probably be 2011's Motorbike/Snowgroomer size set. The front wheels look to me like those from the front of 2008's dune buggy, which have been seriously underused in Technic... though I could be wrong.

Nice to see the flatbed truck in the same scale as 8052. The new panels really give it a good look and it is definately one of the more asthetically well done sets I've seen. It's functionality will probably not be the most interesting though.

The Unimog though... well, pnuematics (with likely compressor) is a big suprise. I knew they'd do something good but I didn't expect that. Especially after they said future pneumatic sets were unlikely.

A lot more trucks this year than last. I prefer construction stuff, but thanks to Uwe Wabra, I can say that trucks will never dissapoint me :)

Junkstyle Gio said...

Unimog is great! Rest looks fine. But stil: there is mention of 4 new sets. Yet only 3 pictures plus 8070.
Am I missing something?

Conchas said...

@Junkstyle Gio

Most likely the catalog is from a country where 8081 is not commercialized, or it is a semi-exclusive hence also not in the trade catalog.
