LEGO Technic Hovercraft and Excavator coming in 2021

Two long-rumoured LEGO Technic sets have been confirmed to launch in 2021 by a consumer catalogue.

The New Zealand retail catalogue for the first five months of 2021 has given us our first look at 42120 Rescue Hovercraft and 42121 Heavy Duty Excavator. Both sets have been on the rumour list for a while, so it’s nice to have final confirmation that they do indeed exist.

According to the retail catalogue, both these sets will launch in March. That may well apply only to New Zealand, though, so we’ll let you know if they arrive earlier elsewhere. The two sets join an ever-growing list of Technic models launching in 2021, with a pair of Monster Jam sets the most recent additions.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
