The 42054 Claas Xerion 5000 Trac VC is one of the three new Technic sets released in the second half of 2016. It's quite a large set at just under 2000 parts but still only half the size of the 42055 Bucket Wheel Excavator. The Claas Xerion really stood out to me as a quite unique build.
The 42053 Volvo EW 160E is one of the three new Technic sets being released in the second half of 2016. It is also based on the pneumatic system v2 which don't come along too often.
There have not been too many pneumatic sets released, and this is only the third one I've owned. It is an interesting system and very different from all the other LEGO mechanics. The recent sets 42043 Mercedes Benz Arocs and 42008 Service Truck both came with Power Functions in addition to the Pneumatics. The 42053 Volvo however leaves out the Power Functions as an optional extra, although it does have comprehensive instructions for how to integrate them.
The much anticipated (at least by me) set Bucket Wheel Excavator 42055. When this monster was announced, I knew I had to get him. Especially the new gear-part 24121 looks like a great addition to the Technic collection. I’m expecting a new wave of MOC from it. Let’s see if this set can meet up with the/my expectations.

The Predator Supercar by Nathanaël Kuipers is the first MOC that I've reviewed on Rebrickable. If you have not heard of Nathanaël before, he was a LEGO designer responsible for the design of several Technic sets from 2005 to 2008. He is also the author of The LEGO Build It Book series. Not just a Technic whiz, Nathanaël has also created dozens of amazing Creator alternate models which you can find on his website.
The 42037 Formula Off-Roader is a new 2015 Technic set with just under 500 parts, making it a medium sized model compared to the other ones released at the same time.
The box contains:
The 42038 Arctic Truck is the 2nd largest of the 2015 Technic sets released so far, at 912 parts. It is a strange looking truck, not something you would typically come across in your daily travels (unless perhaps, you work at the North Pole).
There are not too many Technic Motorcycle sets released, the last ones being the 42007 Moto Cross Bike in 2013 and the 8291 Dirt Bike in 2008. The 42036 Street Motorcycle set is the latest one to be released.
