For fans of LEGO Technic cars, 1st January 2022 brings some interesting purchases our way. Six new vehicles will be available, ranging in price from an eye-watering £174.99 down to £8.99.
There’s a Ford Mustang, a Formula E car, two monster trucks and two motorcycles. Let’s give them a closer look.
LEGO 42130 BMW M 1000 RR
- Age 18+
- 1,920 pieces
The biggest LEGO Technic set to launch in January 2022 by far, the BMW M 1000 RR motorcycle is quite a sight to behold. This is a full replica of the real thing, shrunk down to a 1:5 scale. Featuring intricate detail and eye-catching bodywork, it’s a must for any motorbike fan. You can find out more on LEGO’s official store page.
LEGO 42138 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500
- Age 9+
- 544 pieces
Look at that colour! This Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is certainly eye-catching, what with its racing stripes and iconic shape. Interestingly, is comes with bull-back motors, which is unusual for a LEGO Technic set of this size. It also makes use of a LEGO Technic AR set, which allows you to race the car on a virtual track. That’s pretty cool; we’re guessing it’s something we’ll see in more Technic sets throughout 2022. Find out more information on LEGO.com.
LEGO 42137 Formula E Porsche 99X Electric
- Age 9+
- 422 pieces
Formula E cars are rather strange looking, and so this Porsche 99X is no different. It’s rather eye-catching, though, thanks to its sleek angles and multicoloured bodywork. Like the Mustang, it also sports pull-back motors and is compatible with the Technic AR app. See more about the set on LEGO’s official store page.
LEGO 42135 Monster Jam El Toro Loco
- Age 7+
- 247 pieces
The first of two branded Monster Jam LEGO Technic sets to release on 1st January 2022, the El Toro Loco is shaped like a bull. Sticker detailing gives is some personality, while bricks have been used to give it teeth and horns. For £17.99, this is a pretty cool little set. Though it’s not quite as cool as the Megalodon below… Click here for more information.
LEGO 42134 Monster Jam Megalodon
- Age 7+
- 260 pieces
Oh yes, that is exactly what you think it is: a monster truck shaped like a shark. Not just any shark, either; a Megalodon. This is incredibly fun, and its pull-back technology simply adds to its charm. A steal at just £17.99. More information can be found on LEGO’s website.
LEGO 42132 Motorcycle
- Age 7+
- 163 pieces
Coming on 1st January 2022, this Motorcycle is LEGO’s latest entry-level Technic set. At just £8.99, it packs in a lot of detail thanks to its 163 parts (in our opinion, much better value than similarly-priced standard LEGO sets). It even has a bike chain! We love the attention to detail. Visit LEGO.com to find out more.
