LEGO Technic Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey (42113) Cancelled Due to Faulty Parts?

A week ago, LEGO announced that the upcoming LEGO Technic Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey (42113) will be cancelled for release due to it featuring a military vehicle even though this version was a search and rescue plane. A few lucky individuals were able to get one from their local shop and it may seem that there could be another reason why it was cancelled. A user over on Reddit showed a few images of their set and explained that some of the gear pieces became damaged with extended use. As you can see from the image below, the teeth on the gears are all bent compared to the undamaged part. Coincidentally, Huw over on Brickset released his review of the set today and the same issue was with his copy as well.

Connecting the dots, it may seem that there was more in play for the Osprey cancellation other than the reasons stated in the official comment. If it was due to a faulty part, it would make sense to cancel everything and release at another time when the issue is fixed. LEGO said that they will be making another formal statement soon so we’ll see what is actually going on.

LEGO has announced that you will be able to buy certain LEGO Powered Up components that were found in various Technic sets separately starting on June 1. This allows builders to further enhance their builds without having to invest in a whole set just to get the parts.

A message from Gaute Munch, Director Product Technology (Product owner of Powered UP)

For the past two years we have been in dialog with Ambassadors here on the LAN about Powered Up. The feedback that you have shared has been greatly appreciated. It has been insightful but also pleasure to work and brainstorm with different AFOLs around the world on Powered Up. If you are a member of a Recognized Community, thank you.

Today, we are excited to share the news below with you. We are even more excited to know what your plans are? Are there existing sets you are already excited to modify? Are these going straight into your MOCs? It is almost time for show-and-tell!

Great News on Powered Up Components!

Until now our LEGO® Technic™ Powered Up components have only been available to buy as part of the sets and we know that some of you have been interested in having the electronic components available to be sold separately.

Powered Up components are the hubs, motors, lights, sensors and control handsets that can help builders bring their LEGO models to life. The components can be used to add motorized movement and light features to models, and control them through the Powered UP App.
