Fortunately, I haven't yet blown the money on the original. It's not obvious to me which I like better, however. It's the chassis, not the body, that I'm most interested in anyway. I wish they'd go back to their Expert Builder roots and just release the chassis and keep costs down.

I did buy the original but only for the chassis, I removed the rear steering and have fitted one of 'jaaptechnics' land rover shells to it, looks better than the original and also this version personally.

Surprised there is no premium mark-up over the regular Crawler. Might have to get one.

I've just been reading the comments on the Lego Shop Facebook feed and there is a correction from the Lego Shop that reads:

"Hi everyone - Apologies but we have small correction on this announcement. There will NOT be a pre-order beginning on July 1st. It will instead be available for purchase on August 1st."

Guess we should form a queue outside the Lego store now...

Glad I haven't bought the original and that the price for this is the same. I had visions of it being at least £150
I guess there will be a mad rush to buy this now the preorder option has disappeared

Wow. They've managed to actually make the new body look attractive. The original winning design was very very similar to the original crawler body... I was quite surprised that it won over some more creative designs. I think they did very well in this instance in making the best of what they had to work with. No longer a dull monster truck...

They should've made the semi truck topper. That was my favorite. ;)

what a shame Lego do not ship to my country.... I would have liked at least a half-hearted fighting chance at the pre-order stage...

The lego design is very true to the original, but it did look so much better on the Huge wheels from the Power Puller...
a re-release of those tyres/wheels would have been awesome

Is 20,000 a big enough amount where I don't have to queue up at the store to get one?

Update: LEGO has updated their Facebook page with the following: ” There will NOT be a pre-order beginning on July 1st. It will instead be available for purchase on August 1st." Interesting...:-)
