In 2012, LEGO organized an official Technic competition with the motto "You Design It - We Make It!", asking contestants to submit a new model based on the chassis of set 9398-1, the 4 x 4 Crawler. The winning model, chosen by public votation, would be released as an official LEGO Technic set with a limited and numbered edition of 20.000 sets. The winner was "The Boss" from Egor Karshiev (rm8) from Russia. The final model was a cooperation between LEGO Technic Designer Markus Kossman and Egor Karshiev.
