Casper brings us the first official details about the 8110 Unimog U400, at the technic.LEGO.com blog.
He talks about the set part count and about the Pneumatic Power Take Off (PPTO) at both ends of the vehicle. Nothing that many of us wouldn't have already figured out, but can wait when he gets into the suspension details.
Also from the first Unimog images  made available, we had the PPTOs implemented making use of already available parts. However it turns now clear that a new part was meanwhile developed to accomplish this function (the blue connector with a pneumatic nose). After some reflexion, I realized it was really advisable to develop such part, instead of using the earlier method, which likely would not keep the pneumatic hose tight in place for long and may cause some frustration among the users.
It looks also a good sign for the future of the LEGO Technic pneumatic system, to have new parts released for this system.
Nevertheless a great move from the LEGO Technic team, to start disclosing some details about the next flagship and feeding the fans, anticipating that someone may get his hands on the real stuff anytime soon...
Eagerly waiting for the next drops.
