Thanks to LEGO’s Official Weibo account, we have our very first look at the upcoming Technic 42131 CAT D11 Bulldozer which is set to be released on 1 October 2021.
This giant bulldozer is based on the real-life Caterpillar D11, and weighs in at 3,854-pieces.
There is no pricing details yet, but I’ll update this post when that information becomes available.
See below for regional pricing and links:
- LEGO Technic 42131 App-Controlled Cat® D11 Bulldozer [US] – US$449.99
- LEGO Technic 42131 App-Controlled Cat® D11 Bulldozer [AUS] – AU$749.99
- LEGO Technic 42131 App-Controlled Cat® D11 Bulldozer [UK] – £419.99
- LEGO Technic 42131 App-Controlled Cat® D11 Bulldozer [EU] – €419.99
- LEGO Technic 42131 App-Controlled Cat® D11 Bulldozer [CAN] – CA$549.99
The Technic CAT D11T can be controlled by the CONTROL+ app, allowing it to showcase its functions, such as controlling the front and rear steering, movement of blades, rippers and ladders to properly simulate the bulldozer.
You can see the Technic Cat D11 in action in this video from BrickJoy, posted on Chinese micro-blogging platform Weibo – which really shows off the functions of the CAT D11.
UPDATE: LEGO have also posted the video on Facebook
A really interesting new addition to the set, are these tyre treads, which are released in yellow for the very first time.
Here are photos of the actual Caterpillar D11 that was also shared on LEGO’s Weibo post.
I’m not a massive fan of LEGO Technic (except for the large sports cars) but there’s no denying that this is an absolutely gargantuan model, putting it right up there with the 42100 Technic Liebherr R9800 Excavator in terms of overall size.
