Today, the first product pictures of the new LEGO Technic sets became available. Here comes 42110 Land Rover Defender, a 2573-piece LEGO Technic replica of the legendary utility vehicle. The model has no electric elements, yet the retail price of the set in the UK will be £159.99 (according to Smyths Toys). The Land Rover is equipped with a working steering mechanism (which is standard for LEGO models of its size and class) and a 4-speed sequential gearbox, which is a very pleasant surprise for all LEGO Technic fans. Besides, the chassis carries 3 differentials and an independent suspension. The final touch is a working winch at the front of the vehicle.
This is the very first time a LEGO Technic model comes in olive green color, so we expect a bunch of regular Technic panels in olive for the first time as well. The model measures over 8.6″/22 cm high, 16.5″/42 cm long and 7.8″/20 cm wide. Although the set is rumored to go on sale in October, this is yet to be confirmed by the LEGO Group.
