We've received this statement from LEGO's Community Engagement & Communication" (CEC) team about the launch of set 8110, the Technic Unimog -

"Pre-launch of 8110 LEGO Technic Unimog U400 postponed
The pre-launch of the 8110 LEGO® Technic Unimog U400 in LEGO Brand Stores and LEGO shop has been postponed.
The reason for the decision to postpone the pre-launch, is that the LEGO Group’s quality department has found that a pneumatic cylinder included in the set does not live up to the LEGO Group quality demands, as there is a risk of the cylinder leaking air. Since the LEGO Group wants to ensure a high quality in all products as well as a great play experience, it has been decided to replace the pneumatic cylinder in all new sets.
The launch in retail-stores will remain August 1st.
There is only a very minimal probability that consumers, who have already purchased an 8110 LEGO Technic Unimog U400, will experience difficulties with the pneumatic system."
