The LEGO Technic Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey is officially cancelled
After a whirlwind of a day among fans of LEGO Technic, LEGO has now officially cancelled the upcoming 42113 LEGO Technic Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey due to it’s sole militaristic purpose. It’s surprising that LEGO took so long to come to this conclusion and not during the development of this set but personally, we feel that they did right to eventually stick to their principles, and to correct what was wrong instead of letting it slide.
We appreciate that some fans who were looking forward to this set may be disappointed, but we believe it’s important to ensure that we uphold our brand values.”LEGO
Some retailers have of course gotten the set prior to the announcement and have built them up for display/promotional use so it’ll be interesting to find out just how much these earlier distributed sets will now be worth.
An early build and review by German retailer JB Spielwaren follows.
We end this note with our final look at the unreleased set in the gallery below.
