The two models have been rumoured to be coming for a while, with confirmation inadvertently provided by the LEGO Group’s new Ideas contest. But we’ve now finally got our first look at 42118 Monster Jam Grave Digger and 42119 Monster Jam Max-D, courtesy of the official online store.
Both 2-in-1 sets carry the Monster Jam badge, marking the introduction of a brand new licence to the Technic stable. If you’re unfamiliar with Monster Jam, it’s a live monster truck racing event that’s been running since 1992, primarily in the US and Canada.
Here’s the full details and images for both sets:
42118 Monster Jam Grave Digger
212 pieces | £17.99 / $19.99 / €19.49
42119 Monster Jam Max-D
230 pieces | £17.99 / $19.99 / €19.49
Eagle-eyed readers will notice 42118’s product name is a little different to the one listed on the Ideas contest page. Presumably that list was compiled from an outdated source, or the set’s name changed late into production.
Rumours suggest two more sets, 42120 Hovercraft and 42121 Hydraulic Excavator, are also on the way. Until they’re confirmed by the LEGO Group, though, take any information around them with a pinch of salt.
