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.
Yet another great set from Lego, as usual clear step by step instructions for an easy build, some great features add to the realism of this set. Once I had built it even my neighbour commented on it. The set is also good value for the money, considering the part count. I would recommend this to Lego and land rover fans.
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.
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.
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.
