Technic's Next Flagship Set

Postby Kyler » Thu Jun 01, 2017 9:18 am

I'm not saying this in breaking news, but I just saw what the 2017 flagship Technic set is going to be and I'm excited.

It's...
    ...Remote Control
    ...Got huge wheels
    ...A Towtruck
Set: 42070-1


Added in 9 minutes 1 second:
Someone recently told me they've always seemed to prefer the "B" model of each flagship set.

Looking at this new one's "B" model, I can see where they might be coming from.

The Teddy Bear is a great touch! Love it.

I really like how Technic is getting so much more colour variety than it historically had.

Indeed. Bad-ass tow truck with a soft side. :lol:

When I was a kid I only had primary colours (plus black & grey).

As much as I love tow trucks this one I think I can skip. The black one I found more appealing.

Both in my dark ages, but I presume you mean 8285 and not 9395.
