Lego 75885 – Ford Fiesta M-Sport WRC

This might be one of the smallest speed champions race car but I love it! The new Ford Fiesta M-Sport WRC is a 2018 set with around two hundred pieces and it surely has everything to be a truly success: design, color and playability.

The new Fiesta isn’t very big, but it seems built with plenty of small pieces and definitely shows some really nice details to enjoy. And the first one is absolutely the big air scoop in the engine that can easily be replaced by a normal hood. The white alloy wheels have eight rimes but can also be substituted by a spare kit with a different design.

Lego Speed Champions – The 2018 Sets

The new Speed Champions’ sets that will make part of the first wave of 2018, have finally been unveiled. Six new sets will be on shelves next Spring and attempting to the pictures, the news looks pretty interesting with awesome cars and features to play with.

There’s a new Ford Fiesta (75885) among the six, that really impressed me – the set box art definitely gave a help -,  a new Hybrid Porsche (75887) and of course the biggest, the Ferrari Ultimate Garage (75889), a set with three different Ferraris and plenty of nice elements inside and outside the garage.

Lego 75995 – Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 Team Gift Set

A new and extremely rare speed champions set has been found on eBay and it won’t certainly be easy to see it many times. Why? It appears, according to the name, that it will be only available as a gift to the F1 Mercedes Team members and who knows, later on secondary markets.

The box will feature the Mercedes Petronas F1 Car and a mini-figure in a total of hundred and twenty pieces. However, lucky, the F1 is not exclusive of this set, being exactly the same of the model present in the bigger Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team set (75883). So gladly it won’t be impossible to achieve it, although with a not very appellative price (around hundred bucks).Lego-75995-Mercedes-Petronas-F1-Team-Gift-Set

Lego 75880 – The First Official Pictures of the McLaren 720S

Official Pictures of the new McLaren 720S have been recently unveiled, showing the final version of the latest Speed Champions model. And the final result is definitely awesome, with a pretty nice car where the orange color and the big windshield that covers the entire cockpit, highlight from all the rest.

The set includes besides the McLaren, a mini-figure with a miniature of the car, a desk with a mug, a lamp and a computer with digital images from the project.  Inside the car, the pilot has the usual, a great driving position and the traditional steering wheel. All around there are some great details but I would like to mention the rims, the front lights position and the double exhaust pipe at the back.lego-75880-mclaren720S-speed-championsWith around Continue reading
