42070 LEGO® Technic 6x6 All Terrain Tow Truck
LEGO® brings you the flagship model for the 2nd half of 2017, the completely remote controlled 6x6 All Terrain Truck! The model comes in a predominantly bright blue colour scheme with red, black and yellow highlights.
The truck features 6 very wheels with the rear tires also having live suspension. Physically, the truck has a sturdy bull bar at the front with a hook chain and a very thought out and cute teddy bear strapped to the front bar. There are movable lights and doors that open on the main cabin.
All the functions of the vehicle are controlled by the accompanying remote control. You can drive the vehicle in all directions and steer. When you would like to use the crane, extend the outriggers using your all-in-one controller, then lift the crane arm and swivel it around then winch any load up and down using the same controller!
On a technical level, one of the most exciting things about this set is the very complex gearbox developed specifically for this set. The gear box sits in the middle of the vehicle and all power functions and transmissions terminate at this point.
Like many other Technic models, this set has an alternative model for you to create. You can also build a Research Explorer Vehicle as the secondary model which can be downloadable on the LEGO® website. The secondary model is 4WD, has rear wheel steering and remote control opening of the model’s cabins.

- Physical features include 6 massive tires, sturdy bull bar with accompanying chain hook, lights which move and the main cabin has doors that open up to reveal the inside of the vehicle
