Following the reveal of the LEGO City 2019 summer sets at the Nuremberg Toy Fair, German LEGO fan correspondent Zusammengebaut continues his coverage of the events as they unfold at the LEGO showroom at the prestigious European toy fair. We’ve heard the first line-up of summer 2019 LEGO City sets, and this time, we now know that we will be getting four additional LEGO Technic summer 2019 sets slated to be available in August 1.
- Spider Crane (42097)
- Car Transporter (42098)
- Off-Road Vehicle (42099)
- Liebherr 9800 (42100)
The Car Transporter (42098) is interesting since Zusammengebaut describes it as 2 builds in 1, with one build as the same size as that of the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 (42093), and another for the Car Transporter itself. This set is second to the largest of the four sets coming in at 2,493 pieces.
The Spider Crane (42097) is another 2-in-1 set that comes in 920 pieces, while the Off-Road Vehicle (42099) comes with the new CONTROL+ system, three Power Functions motors, and independent suspensions.
The last set in the list could be the most complex among the four LEGO Technic Summer 2019 sets. The Liebherr 9800 (42100) comes at 4,108 pieces and includes seven Power Function motors that are individually controllable allowing for a wider range of movement. It also has two smart hubs and features the new digital CONTROL+ system.
It definitely looks like LEGO is levelling up its next generation of Technic sets following these new innovations. I’m not so much into LEGO Technic, but this are surely exciting sets to watch out for in August.
Stay tuned for more updates! Special thanks once again to Zusammengebaut for keeping us in the loop and sharing these images.
