The LEGO Group has sent along a few items of interest. First, a video for the new Emerald Night set, and second, new communications about the Power Functions Train line.
As a follow up to the LEGO 9V Train Communication III, there is one change we would like to inform you about concerning the LEGO Transformer.
Due to future legal requirements and to provide a more environmentally sustainable solution, we have decided to update the current LEGO Transformer #9833.
The new Power Functions Rechargeable Battery Box #8878 that will launch in mid-April 2009 has been designed to use this new LEGO Transformer #8887. The current LEGO Transformer (#9833) will not work with the new Power Functions rechargeable battery box and will gradually be phased out.
Below is a list of the LEGO Power Functions accessories used across multiple LEGO lines which are used with the new #10194 Emerald Night Train:
#8882 Motor #8884 IR RX #8870 Light #8878 Rechargeable Battery #8879 Speed Remote Control #8887 Transformer
Look for more information on these items on www.LEGO.com in early to mid-April 2009.
