Is this the 1H13 LEGO Technic sets list!?

After we have heard rumors about a first list with 4 new LEGO Technic sets for the 1H13, 3 new sets are now joining to thicken the list.

  • 42000 Grand Prix Racer / 99,99€ / Feb-Mar
  • 42001 Hovercraft / 14,99€ / Jan
  • 42002 Mini Backhoe / 19,99€ / Jan
  • 42003 Action Racecar / 19,99€ / Jan
  • 42004 Action Race Buggy / 19,99€ / Jan
  • 42005 Motocross Bike / 19,99€ / Jan
  • 42006 Material Handler / 59,99€ / Jan

I wonder to see 3 new sets at the same price point, which didn't happen for years! Probably since 2000 when there were released 36 new Technic sets in one single year, while the company was making is "crossing of the desert" and loosing huge amounts of capital.

If this list confirms, this is probably going to be the year with more new LEGO Technic sets since then. As we already know that two big sets are guaranteed for the 2H (the 2013 flagship, and the 2012 flagship remake as resulting from the official LEGO Technic Challenge starting in October). We will just need two additional sets for the 2H, to make it happen (more than likely I'd say).

Apparently TLG is committed to continue thicken their profits, by enlarging their offer in the market, as it has happening consistently in the past years. However it seems to me that we're seeing here an average price point decrease (lower average price but increased offer) - Maybe a strategy to fight against the economical crisis devastating across Europe.

Meanwhile Brickset just added the Technic 3-in-1 Super Pack for 2012, as we have also seen happening in the past 3 years (maybe available only at some markets).

This time it includes:
  • 9395, Pick-Up Tow Truck
  • 9392, Quad Bike
  • 8293, Motor Set (which returns this year to the LEGO Technic Super Pack)

Strange: no set in the €9.99 range. Is Technic also getting more expensive. The €59.99 set is normal for the 1H set
