LEGO Technic Land Rover Defender (42110) Zavvi Sale – September 2021

If you’re looking for a great deal on the LEGO Technic Land Rover Defender (42110), Zavvi currently has it on sale for about 23% off the regular price. They have it listed for $154.99 plus free shipping when you use the code LEGOROVER during checkout. This has been the lowest I’ve seen the set priced at. Before was on Amazon when it was only 20% off on and off the past year.

LEGO Monkie Kid Continuing Through 2023

A few days ago, LEGO Vice President of Design Matthew Ashton did a Q&A on Instagram and he listed off some themes he has been put in charge of for 2023 and some of them may surprise you. As VP of Design, he has his hands full for quite a few product lines for 2023 which include City, Friends, Creator, Classic, Technic, Speed Champions, Monkie Kid, Ninjago, Collectible Minifigures, and DOTS.

What’s most interesting is that Monkie Kid will continue releasing products for the next few years. Although Monkie Kid is a very unique theme that caters mostly to the Asian market, I’m not really sure if it’s that popular in the west. They’ve recently announced that the show will finally be available in the US through Amazon Kids+ but it seems quite late since a lot of people have been waiting over a year to watch it and the hype for the theme has substantially cooled down. Original IPs tend to do well with LEGO and they usually run for about two years but if Monkie Kid extends to 2023, that’ll be four years which makes it one of the longer running ones and that isn’t a bad thing.

LEGO 4×4 Mercedes-Benz Zetros Trial Truck (42129) Review

For my other review of the summer 2021 LEGO Technic sets, I have the other larger set in the wave with the 4×4 Mercedes-Benz Zetros Trial Truck (42129). The set has 2,110 pieces and retails for $299.99. It is able to use the newer CONTROL+ system to remotely control it. The parts are packed into bags numbered to six as well as bags for the motors and hub. There is also a very large sticker sheet as well. Again, I’m not all too familiar with Technic so I probably will get some of the terminology wrong.
