About this deal

Its surprisingly study as well and has survived many fights with my twins girls who are both fascinated with lego now. Technic excavators are usually big and expensive, so it's refreshing to have a smaller and cheaper one available for a change, particularly one that works as well as this.

Bought this for my kids but my husband ended up putting it together (he is in excavation as a trade). Being released two months later than the rest of the 2021 winter products, the set doesn’t introduce any brand new pieces but features new for the year and are still relatively rare.In accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) effective on May 25, 2018, we are providing greater transparency, and we are enabling new privacy controls so you can choose how The Brothers Brick handles your personal information.

While most TECHNIC sets are vehicles that use pieces to mimic real vehicles, such as engine pieces, suspension, pneumatic, and transmission pieces, the TECHNIC parts have been used by various other System themes as well as LEGO Mindstorms. Construction machines are among the most numerous and popular Technic models, but it's been a few years since LEGO produced an excavator of this design. It looks good for what it is, the design is neat with little holes in the main body and the B model looks good also.The finished model is one of the neatest LEGO Technic models of recent years and definitely, one of the best-looking LEGO Technic excavators ever released. The main features include a moving arm and a shovel, running tracks and a detailed cabin with a red seat for the driver. There are 4 cones to manage the building site, plus extra LEGO® pieces to use as bricks for scooping up with the digger truck toy. LEGO components are dropped, heated, crushed, twisted and analysed to make sure they meet stringent global safety standards.

I feel a little sheepish now in my original comments :( the way it is explained makes much more sense. It takes a reasonable amount of turns on the knobs to move the arm, and it's plenty easy for kids to use. Featuring authentic details and working features, including a rotating cabin, articulated arm and shovel, this set is perfect for construction and building enthusiasts.I wonder if one could rebuild the shovel arm mechanisms to use ratcheting pieces in the joints and remove the wonky dial controls so that it functions more naturally, albeit with more direct human contact to the joints. The phrase "so I haven't been able to build it yet" has cropped up more and more recently, unfortunately. With no panels covering the mechanisms, it serves as a great illustrative example for younger builders. Technic MOC builders are a big part of the crowd, that is complaining about blue pins, because they are usually trying to build models, that not only work well, but also look good too. LEGO® components meet stringent industry standards to ensure they are consistent, compatible and connect reliably every time – it's been that way since 1958.

The LEGO Technic 2-in-1 hydraulic excavator playset (42121) is a fantastic birthday, Christmas or surprise gift.

I’m assuming you are talking about the Yellow Technic, Liftarm, Modified L-Shape Quarter Ellipse Thick 2 x 3, and just grabbed the wrong link? Previous excavators of this design have been large models, and it's not that easy to judge the size of this one from the picture on the box, so here it is with a minifig.
