2H2012 LEGO Technic sets in detail, at new video from Nuremberg Toy Fair

Hey guys, look here!

New video from Nuremberg Toy Fair, showing a lot more detail from the 2H LEGO Technic sets.

Plenty of stuff and details on the new 2H sets: 9393 Tractor, 9396 Helicopter and 9398 4x4 Crawler.

The tractor got some rear attachment, which I think was not seen before. Pretty cool!

Guess there are still a couple functions on the helicopter, not demoed here...
There is an outer lever on the right side of the front cabin - Maybe this controls the main rotor blades pitch!? And it seems there is also a similar control on the other side... Wish it is not just to open a door or so. Also do not see how it would open, so there is still an hope.

On the Crawler box backside, we can see the respective B-model. Some sort of truck can be seen.

Tons of stuff to make and enhance some snapshots!

Thanks MikeTwo, for the heads-up!

Look at the section with the RC truck, you can see the B Model on the back of the box!!! Looks cool! :)

Yah, it looks like a sort of truck! :)

I wonder if this video explains how the crawler's PF will work?

it is not a little bit funny, that the function of the helicopter which is most interresting for us, was not shown?

TechnicBRICKs said...


Can it be the guy didn't know about the feature (if it is present...), or did he forget to show?...
Nevertheless I wonder what it is the front lever on the right side and the knob on the left?

Let me be first in line to buy the helicopter

One thing that might be relevant about the helicopter, is that we can't seen an arrow in the box art, that suggests the presence of main rotor blade pitch control.

As we know such arrows use to be present, to indicate existing functions and movements...

Seeing the different pictures of 9396 seems to indicate 1M of vertical movement of the blade pitch control parts. This provides about 20-30 degrees of pitch change from horizontal to lifting.

I haven't seen which turntable has been used - dokludi thinks it's a large one - hence his MOC - but a small one would have less friction for turning the rotor, which the addition of an 8293 motor set should allow if rotor rotation is one of the gearbox items.

It's doubtful there's cyclic pitch change. I think it's one of the first things some of us will try once we've built the set. The loss of the flex system and the 8856 swash plate parts has hindered this. I wonder how much more it would have cost TLG to include it. At least one prototype would have included it if the model builders were trying!

The blade mounting seems good for a substantial rotor speed. Many normal helicopters do about 160rpm on the main rotor - a medium motor geared down 3:1 would be about right.
