Hey LEGO enthusiasts, the moment we’ve all been eagerly waiting for has finally arrived! Remember the LEGO 42146 Liebherr LR 13000 Crawler Crane we were talking about last year? We’ve now got some cool pics to share with you, thanks to the French online store Cdiscount. Their listing has since been taken down, but the internet being the internet, most of the details were captured before that happened.
This epic crawler crane consists of a whopping 2,882 pieces, stretches to 110 cm in length, and spreads 28 cm in width. Now, there’s been a little confusion about its height on the French website – is it 99 cm or 100 cm? But let’s not get hung up on that one centimeter. Either way, it’s about the same size as the LEGO 42082 Rough Terrain Crane from 2018, which also stood a meter tall.
We know you’re all wondering about the price. Earlier this year, we reported that this adult model would cost around €600. But the rumor mill has churned out a slightly higher figure, €679.99 to be exact. Interestingly, Cdiscount has listed it for €559.99, but we’ve got a hunch that this might just be a promotional price. We’ve heard from some reliable sources that the LEGO 42146 Liebherr LR 13000 Crawler Crane will still retail for €679.99.
Here are the key details for you:
- Set number: 42146
- Name: Liebherr LR 13000
- Number of pieces: 2882
- Release date: August 1, 2023
- Price: €679.99
- Where to get it: LEGO.com
Now, let’s talk about the features. This set comes with two Control+ Hubs and six motors that bring the construction machine to life. The cool features include the crawler tracks, the rotatable platform, the tiltable lattice tip, the winch, and the load detection system. And guess what? You can control the crane using the Control+ App on your smartphone!
According to our sources, the LEGO 42146 Liebherr LR 13000 Crawler Crane should have no problem lifting objects up to 800 grams. The set also introduces 24 new weights designed specifically for this set, which together weigh over 900 grams, making each weight about 37.5 grams.
So, what do you think of the LEGO 42146 Liebherr LR 13000 Crawler Crane? Do you love its look, or were you hoping for something even bigger? How do you feel about the price? Is it justified? We’d love to hear your thoughts, so feel free to share them in the comments.
