I'm the biggest LEGO advocate ever. They provide hours of fun, thought and dexterity are needed. This Truck is no exception. More than 2500 pieces. So lay out a mat, get little containers for the pieces and create... I mean, let the kiddies create 🤣 perfect gift for those who love trucks and putting things together.

Recommendation: meh 4.36 / 5 from 86 reviews

It's been a few years since I posted a Technic review but I have had one issue with what was almost the perfect Technic set. The set is crammed with functionality and detail, dozens of gears and complex linkages which make the build incredibly rewarding for all ages and when you're finished, you have a superb model - the Lego designers certainly earned their titles. The drawback I experienced however is that the drivetrain is very complicated and, despite being meticulous with my assembly, somthing deep inside the set hasn't gone to plan. As such, my build doesn't perform as im sure Lego intended. Please don't let this put you off though indeed, pay attention to the instructions, trial-fit gears and shafts and if like me you enjoy solving problems, then you may get the additional enjoyment of trying to find the solution (judging by a number of other reviews, not everyone has experienced this issue) I'm going to have another go and perhaps take the opportunity to fit a V8 under the bonnet in the process - but not immediately as my wife has asked if she can have the kitchen table back! Good effort Lego Technic Team

Recommendation: meh 8.2 / 10 by Jim

Proper gearbox? Check. Proper suspension? Check. Proper steering? Check. Working steering wheel? Check. Some other extra-ordinary functions (like ride height adjustment)? Not really. A winch, but that hardly counts. Does the lack of extra function prevent this car from being called a supercar? I honestly don't think so. This is a very well designed car, with very well working functionality. This model is most definitely one of the best Technic cars TLG has designed.

The 42110 Land Rover is a great build and the gear box and is a pleasure to watch. So many gears of course also have a drawback: backlash. If you want to see the engine move you will have to drive for a considerable distance before all the accumulated backlash is resolved and the pistons start moving. When they do it is a nice sight though.

Recommendation: meh by Chris

If you've been a fan of any of LEGO Technic's previous licensed street vehicles, then you'll find a lot to love here with a solid build, complex mechanicals, and a great color scheme. The removable roof rack and extra cargo boxes are fun and the suspension delightful. And of course, there are all the new elements, both wholly new and newly olive green, to excite longtime Technic fans. The $200 price point for more than 2,500 pieces makes the set a fair deal, especially for a high-profile licensed product. So if you're ready to leave the slick city streets and their Technic supercars and head to the wilderness, the Land Rover Defender is an excellent way to start.

Back in 2016, LEGO launched a line of “Ultimate Collector Series" Technic Supercars with 42056 Porsche 911 GT3 RS. It introduced a bunch of new elements, including new rims and wheel arches. The Land Rover Defender also comes with specific rim and wheel arch elements.

Recommendation: yes by Tim Johnson

The build is unusual, with some surprising techniques, and the final model looks good – actually better than the real-life Defender 2020, in my opinion. Then there's the gearbox, the most complex ever created in a LEGO set, and… well, it's perhaps too complex. There are many gears involved, and because of that, the model doesn't work in low gears. You frequently hear a cracking sound when you push the car and sometimes the engine doesn't move at all. In third, fourth and reverse gears it works fine, but you'll avoid driving in first and second gear. In addition to that, the gears are switched! The engine rotates faster in fourth gear than in first gear, and it's also faster in high gear than in low gear. On a real car, if the engine rotates at the same speeds, the higher the gear is, the faster the car drives. With this set, it's the other way round. I guess (or at least I hope) this was a deliberate choice so the kids who play with it will get an intuitive visual representation of the car accelerating, but I find that quite confusing. It's a shame, because beside that, the Land Rover Defender was definitely a highlight in 2019's lineup.

All in all I'm really impressed by this set. Despite it flaws, the build is a real treat. I would even say I had more fun building this set, than building the 42100-1, because there is much more Technic involved and it's a lot more complex. This is a showcase of why I love building Technic sets. For the amount of parts, it's also not a really expensive set, mainly because there are no electric components.

Overall, then, there's a lot to like here: a challenging build, complex mechanisms and an attractive end product: everything you could want in a Technic set.
