We’re still several months away before we finally see on toy shelves the latest LEGO Technic sets slated for summer. And if in case these impressive sets are not enough to fill your LEGO Technic collection, then LEGO still has a huge surprise in store for us this year. Thanks to online toy retailer Smyths Toys, we now have a glimpse of the LEGO Technic Land Rover Defender (42110) building set. As tipped by Brickset, this massive Technic set takes it cue from the still to be revealed, next-generation Land Rover Defender.
Perhaps similar to its marketing approach with the Bugatti Chiron, LEGO is expanding its partnership with Land Rover to translate in LEGO form the latter’s next-gen models. However, the reveal seems to be unintended since Smyths Toys have taken down their LEGO Technic listing prior to this post.
The LEGO Technic Land Rover Defender (42110) comes in at 2,573 pieces and measures at 42cm long and 22cm high. It is expected to retail for 159.99 USD once it arrives in LEGO Stores locally presumably in August or September. Here’s the set’s unofficial product description as lifted from Smyths’ online portal.
This collectible model of the Land Rover Defender really captures the vehicle’s level of refinement with its clean, modern lines and sculpted surfaces, making it a great display piece for the home or office. Developed in partnership with Land Rover, this building toy has working steering, 4-speed sequential gearbox, All Wheel Drive with 3 differentials, independent suspension, detailed in-line 6-cylinder engine and a working winch.
