After an early sneak peek, Lego has recently revealed its priciest Technic set to date, the Liebherr Crawler Crane, priced at $700 USD, however, contrary to expectations, it is not the largest set in terms of the number of pieces. Inspired by the real-life Liebherr Crawler Crane LR 13000 manufactured by the German-Swiss multinational company Liebherr, whose real-world version can lift 3,000 tons and hoist objects to heights of up to 774 feet, the toy version captures the essence of this powerful equipment.
The actual crane is renowned for its exceptional capabilities in undertaking intricate engineering tasks, including the construction of power plants. Liebherr proudly refers to it as the most potent conventional crawler crane globally.
Standing over 38-inches tall (99 cm) the Liebherr Crawler Crane LR 13000 model is constructed out of 2,883 bricks, and is powered with six large motors that will allow you to operate it like actual construction equipment, remotely over Bluetooth using a Lego app running on a smartphone.
The toy is designed for adults over the age of 18 years. Pre-orders are now available for the $700 toy, with shipping scheduled to commence on August 1st, 2023.
