LEGO Technic McLaren Teaser Video

The LEGO Technic Facebook page has put up a teaser video for a new LEGO Technic McLaren set coming soon. Rumors from a few months ago has a 2021 set coming out with the McLaren Senna GTR (42123) which has 830 pieces and retailing for €49.99. It’s interesting to see the amount of pieces going into a Technic set for at that price point if it’s true. If there’s a teaser, that usually means the announcement of the set should be coming soon so stay tuned.

LEGO October 2020 Double VIP Point Set

It’s a new month and that means there is a new double VIP point set that you can get on the LEGO Shop which is the LEGO Technic Concrete Mixer Truck (42112). It retails for $119.99 and you can get 1,560 points for it. Note that it is only one set that qualifies for double points for October which is strange since we’ve been getting two sets every month for a while now. Either way, it’s a decent set for the price considering it’s a Technic set which tends to be a little more expensive side.

LEGO Powered Up Shopping Limits Increased

If you’ve been shopping for the LEGO Powered Up parts, you may have noticed that there were limits of 2 or 3 that you can purchase. This was an issue because more complex builds may need more parts than that. LEGO has listened and they have now increased the Powered Up parts to five. Although there is still the “lifetime purchase limit,” that will be addressed in the future of when you can order them again.

For the past few weeks I have been working with Retail, Consumer Services and our Order Verification Team to stress the need to examine the limits on certain products and the current limit time frame. Your voices are heard and we recognize that there are certain items where the need to purchase additional motors or hubs is critical. We are also in a situation where production is limited due to the virus.

There are concerns around increasing the limits on certain products that have long lead times. Powered elements are a very good example of an item with a significant lead time. If we go back to 2016 when 10254 The Holiday Train was released train motors, HUBs and remotes sold out prior to November and were out of stock for over 6 months. This was a very challenging time for everyone as you could not power the train or any other product you just received. Hence the need for limits.

While we do not have any information to share on the purchase limit time frame, we can share that
