I'm not really a Technic fan anymore but these look great. The Mini CLAAS XERION is adorable.

No such thing as too many mobile cranes!

zusammengebaut.com has pictures of a Technic catamaran that actually floats!

The list is missing two more sets shown here:
https://www.stonewars.de/news/lego-technic-januar-2020/

Basically there is only one "real" technic set, e.g. the crane. This model reminds of 8640 (8431, 8438) and 8053 respectively. All the functions are there but in a somewhat simple setup.

There will be four sets with pullback motors.
The floating boat (42105) might be a nice idea but it didn't catch on me.

For the mini Claas: This is a nice entry model. I already built a copy from pictures released yesterday ;-)

I like the tiny tractor, the rest feel too much form over function to me, similar to how I found most recent technic offerings.

I was hoping for another car to go on the car transporter. With what was released in 2019 you got the blue car with the transporter and the orange Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 as a separate set. Maybe there will still be one (or more) coming at some point, but there are three spaces left to fill!

How many dragsters is LEGO gonna make?

That Tractor lools adorable.

that crane reminds me pretty famous set 8421 and his next version 42009, but smaller.

Love the buggy the dragster and the mobile Crane takes me back to my days on building sites.. the catamaran looked good on IG too!

Ever since they removed the old-school frame embellishment from the box art in this year's summer sets, I've really appreciated the breath of fresh air that is these backgrounds but at the same time felt the end of an era. I'm torn. Those are pretty backgrounds.

@mini_mads1980 indeed, I'm waiting too... Was hoping the top gear car would fit but it seems to be too wide...

2020 pull <- back cars are 220+ pieces and the 2019 are 120+ pieces.
I'd prefer this buggy to have a pullback motor...
So i'd better get an older cheaper set to get a motor :)

Did some people get canned up there in the design department? So far three themes have looked like garbage.

The 10 dollar sets looks great and functional enough for their size, the B models looks great too.

I have a 1999 technic flashback.

Also, just one to small technic tractor and a crane again.
And than just cars (and a boat) .

Lego technic is official creatively bankrupt.

That crane looks lovely -- I'm not a serious Technic builder but I'd buy it for display and play.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The mini tractor is adorable and the crane looks nice too

Gravatar

The Mini Claas Xerion looks great, and the crane looks like a nice mid-sized set that's more affordable than the huge cranes of recent years.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Meh. Still not a single great Technic set in sight. The crane looks half-assed.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Well, they're certainly miles better than the Top gear set, mind you that doesn't take much beating

Gravatar
By in United States,

After the huge disappointment from City, Technic's looking great. Mini Xerion and dune buggy look great, and seem to be Technic returning more to its roots. The pull-backs actually look realistic this time, and the crane, well, is awesome!

I for sure will be picking up that mini Xerion! I'm imagining a ton of implements for this little tractor, and definitely, not a silly mower. What is it with LEGO and crude attempts at mowing equipment? Why not a scraper blade, tipper, or similar?

Nup, still doesn’t grab me.

I'm getting vibes of Record Breaker from that drag racer

I often like to combine big and small versions of sets. So that mini Xerion is definitely on my wish list. And I will probably also pick up that crane to add to my collection of them.

Love the buggy, it's a nice little throw back. The Claas is pretty sweet too. Now as an Australian I'll have to wait until March to see them in-store!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

So the same as every other year then?

Love the crane. Finally a new Technic set that looks like a proper Technic set of old. So glad TLG are still able and willing to offer sets like these. No stupid app controls or licensing deals that offer nothing but overpriced Meh sets.
The other sets in this wave I couldn't care less about though. Never was interested in those Technic mini sets.

Everyone likes the mini-Xerion... me too! Definitely the most interesting of the bunch. Which proves sets don't need thousands of parts to be appealing.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Why does everyone like the mini-XERION so much? (Rhetorical question I know)

It looks neither as realistic as the City one nor is it gorgeous like the full-size Technic one.
I guess it's because people miss the proper one and this is the next best thing LEGO is willing to offer.
Sure it looks cute and all, but TLG should rather offer a new flagship Claas set in 2020, there's so many cool possibilities.

How about a TORION 1914-1177
Or any AXION
Or a LEXION 670-620
Or how about a JAGUAR TERRA TRAC (as LEGO appears to love (partially) tracked vehicles)

One can dream...

The Race Truck and the Mobile Crane look cool/good.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Probably get those pull backs!

I used to love those as a kid and had the old technic one.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The buggy looks dope; reminds me of the small Technic sets in the 90s that were small and cheap but still had cool functions. Like a modern 8207-1 Dune Duster.

@AustinPowers : I guess everyone like the mini-XERION because it looks nice and has a high functionality-to-size ratio. But of course we're only talking about sets in this bunch - I would also very much prefer a full-size model of any of the machines you've mentioned.

Nothing to get excited about here. Technic is still going strong on their brutalism streak. Beats me who ever buys these new age Technic sets. IMHO the mini mobile crane is the only set with some degree of potential here, but we shall see when it comes out.

Mini CLAAS is my favourite of these. 2 large cogs help. Still not quite as useful to my MOC ideas as the orange cherry-picker was.
The new yellow in the buggy. A colour that is nice but not related to a previous theme. It has 4 joints, which were introduced later than 3 and 5 in the 1990s.
The crane looks very expandable. I've thought about building a large crane but decided it would take too long and there are already plenty of wonderful large-scale examples out there. At this scale it should be easier with less time. The new LA is a plus but a double-length jib might struggle to rise with 2.
I don't do pull-backs as the motor has less MOC value. Let them be a good introduction for the 7+ age group as intended.
Overall no hurry but I'll make the most of any discounts unless something else is more useful to me.
