Lego Technic Bucket Wheel Excavator

Here’s a sneak peak at what Lego plans to unveil at next month’s New York Toy Fair. It’s the fully motorized, 4,000 piece Technic Excavator that looks massive and sure to be a hit among fans of the brand. On the surface, it looks like some crazy piece of contemporary construction equipment, set out to clear any forestry or even mountains in its path.

Technically it’s the largest edition to the Lego Technic set, standing just about 16-inches off the ground and 18-inches across. There are also countless moving parts that will get any armchair engineer excited. These include a motor, of course, a rotating bucket, conveyor belts and functional tank treads. The Excavator will keep things clean wherever it roams about on the homestead, potentially cleaning up all those Lego blocks from that last project. There’s no word on pricing just yet, but we’re guessing it will be north of a couple hundred bucks. Until then, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens next month. [Purchase]
