LEGO Technic is always on the lookout for new vehicles to transform into building block toy models. Something with plenty of gears, moving parts and function. Hitting every nail on the head, the LEGO Technic Volvo L350F Wheel Loader is one of the coolest (not to mention biggest) sets we’ve ever seen.
When the designers at LEGO Technics came across the Volvo Wheel Loader, it was love at first sight. The toy company teamed up with Volvo Construction Equipment in order to translate the real life vehicle into a Technic model for us to build at home. The designers not only spoke to and worked closely with engineers and designers at Volvo, they also got behind the wheel of one of these monster wheel loaders to really get a feel for things. The end result is a LEGO set that measures over 22 inches in height, and features a the largest single piece ever created for LEGO Technic – that massive bucket – which happens to reach 14 inches in the air. Complete with hydraulics and gears, this thing is piloted by remote control, offering up a whole new level of fun for LEGO builders. [Purchase]
