A short time ago, LEGO asked LUGs and fan media around the world to take questions about the new LEGO Powered Up system which are in some of the new products such as the LEGO City Trains and in the App-Controlled Batmobile (76112).
Over on the LAN Blog, LEGO has answered a number of questions regarding the LEGO Powered Up system and it looks like there are major changes to expect from the old Power Functions system. One of the main questions I’ve seen been asked on social media is backwards compatibility with PF and it looks they will not be and LEGO will be leaning on the AFOL community to come up with solutions to that problem.
There’s a lot to take in at this time because LEGO Powered Up is still very new but I’m interested to see how the LEGO community will manage to integrate it into their current setups especially in the train and great ball contraption communities where a tried and true framework is still ideal for what they need their layout to do.
