The tow truck and other LEGO novelties
LEGO releases new models every month. Every August, the highly anticipated LEGO Technic novelties are released. I’d like to show you the new all-terrain tow truck, the LEGO Ninjago, City, Elves and Juniors and the new DC and Marvel universe products.
This month, LEGO Technic released three new products: an all-terrain tow truck, an extreme adventure vehicle and an airport rescue vehicle. All three are 2-in-1 models. With 1862 pieces, the all-terrain tow truck is the largest of all three models. It features LEGO Power Functions and an array of remote-controlled functions, including forward and reverse drive, front steering, extendable outriggers and a working crane and winch. Have a look at this impressive LEGO vehicle.
