LEGO Technic Sets

Its the first day of October and LEGO Technic fans know very well what it means: two new massive LEGO Technic sets are now available at LEGO Shop@Home! When it comes to Technic sets, size indeed matters where the theme’s sophisticated builds and innovation really stand out.

First off, we have the most advanced and largest Technic set by far in the form of the LEGO Technic Liebherr R 9800 (42100) with LEGO accepting pre-orders for this mammoth-sized set starting last month. This behemoth of a set clocks in at 4,108 pieces and comes with 3 XL motors, 4 L motors, and 2 Bluetooth-controlled Smart hubs. All of these being remotely controlled by the new LEGO Control+ app.

LEGO motoring enthusiasts will also be thrilled to know that the LEGO Technic Land Rover Defender (42110) is now also available for purchase. The LEGO Technic theme is known for some of the most advanced and impressive brick-built models of modern vehicles around. The Land Rover Defender (42110) is the latest addition to the Technic line following the likes of Porsche 911 RSR (42096), Bugatti Chiron (42083), and the BMW R 1200 GS Adventure (42063).
