S@H now has four new Technic sets available.
Included in this release is the impressive Off-Roader set 8297 which contains several power function components.
they are impressive but tecnic isnt really my thing , does the excavator have instructions on how to add the motor witch is sold seperatly
I really like the look of the off roader, cannot wait to see the power functions in action.
reminds me of a Hummer H3 or Jeep Wrangler.
So what are all of the power functions components? I see the battery box but is there also a remote control or something for the winch?
I can't wait anymore, when will be the release date in Hong Kong...HelpI look forward to own the off-roader.
I have seen a video of the off-roader somewhere on the 'net. As well as going along the truck has height changable suspension i think.
Very excited about the new linear actuators. I would love to see Lego release a powered pneumatic pump and micro motors
If you go to youtube and search for 8297 there is a video of the power functions and lights being demonstrated at toy fair 2008, go check it out.
I wonder, will the pole switches and lighting parts be sold sepparatly like the motors are right now?
I've just got back into lego....what's S@H?
S@H is an abbreviation of Lego's shop at home website www.legoshop.com
You can now buy this set on the UK shop@home site for £89.99, also the other 2 new technic sets are also available now, the telescopic handler is £59.99, the excavator is £39.99.
The instructions for 8297 and other new Technic sets are now available at TLG web site:http://us.service.lego.com/en-US/BuildingInstructions/default.aspxWe have a new differential, steering arm, universal joint, linear actuator, PF lights and PF pole reverser. Yummy !!
Oh man the motors add so much $$ to the sets. Look at 8297 is 120$ with 1097 pieces where 8295 is 90$ with 1182 pieces. I do like the light feature though.
i've bought the excavator already and its totally awesome. I actually combined it with 8292.
