The last days have been proficuous regarding new material related with the Technic Excavator (8043), to be released next August.
It looks this year someone managed to put his hands on the flagship, much earlier than the usual.
I was trying to get it for June, but May caught me in complete surprise!...
Yes, Anio from SeTechnic got it from their partner Peek et Poke, a toy store in France, and made a comprehensive review which reveals all the secrets previously discussed about this fabulous model.
Finally we got sure the 4 motors are arranged in a 1+2x3 switch box, to cope with the model 6 functions, and again there are two functions going through the turntable which connects the drivetrain to the super-structure.
There is a video showing it all (except the switch box in action). What impressed me most, were the movements fluidity and functions speed.
There are also tons of detailed photos from the model (from which, just a few shown below),
and even copies from the model parts inventory.
Great work, Anio!
