If you’ve not managed to find a new Lego set you want for Christmas there’s a major new wave of releases coming out on New Year’s Day.
Christmas is, without doubt, the busiest month of the year for buying and receiving gifts Toys, but they must be available far in advance so that everyone has a chance of getting them. Lego also tends to release lots of new Lego products at the beginning of the year, including this new Technic motorbike.
Even though big sets can be released at any time, the majority of sets are released in late summer and New Year. January will see many new sets for Star Wars and Harry Potter.
The TechnicBMW M 1000 RR aims more at adults than kids, with a realistic 1:5 scale model that includes all the parts.
However Technic Lego is compatible with the regular kind it’s generally used to create machinery and vehicles that actually work, with the BMW M 1000 RR having a fully functional three-speed gearbox and front and rear suspension.
It’s also got front steering, a gold chain, and three different dashboards and a printed windshield – for you to customise your display however you want.
The model is exactly the same as the real thing. However, the way you build it is designed to replicate the actual production process of the bike. All parts are added in the same order.
‘It’It has been a great experience to get beneath the skin of this important model for BMW Motorrad. There’s a reason why these beautifully engineered bikes are so universally loved by the biking community, and we are confident our Lego Technic version is a winner like its real-life namesake’, says designer Samuel Tacchi.
The bike measures 45.5 cm in length and 27.7cm high (or 32.6cm high with the display stand). It is the largest of its kind at 1,920 pieces. Lego Technic motorbike ever.
That also means it’s not cheap, at £174.99, but then you have got plenty of time to start saving up.
Set number 42130, it’ll go on sale on January 1 at Lego stores and the official websiteIt was also available at other retailers, starting in March 1.
