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).
The F1 looks pretty cool Continue reading
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.With around Continue reading
The first image of the new Speed Champions set, McLaren 720s (75880) has been revealed by Lego, on the Facebook page. With a predominant orange color, this new car seems to be a great replica of the original model that has also been recently presented in Geneva, on this year international motor show.
The set will probably be similar to the rest in terms of size and price, namely with around hundred and fifty pieces and a value around the fifteen dollars and will presumably be available next June.
Can’t wait to Continue reading
Fifty years separate these two models, but the beauty and the passion are definitely the same. This new Speed Champions set, 2016 Ford GT & 1966 Ford GT40, shows three hundred and sixty six pieces and definitely brings a lot to enjoy and play.
The set, as you can see through the pictures features the same car, the Ford GT40, but in different versions, nowadays model (2016) and the sixties racing version, three mini-figures (a couple of pilots for the cars and the finish line judge) with a few accessories, and a small podium with a big trophy for the winner.
Honestly, I don’t know which one is my Continue reading
The Scuderia Ferrari SF16-H is a small Speed Champions set that will be available in the next wave of Lego Releases, next summer. It has around hundred pieces, perhaps a bit more, and features a great Formula One Ferrari, with a finish line and a mini-figure, the pilot, with a couple of accessories namely a spare helmet.
I really love this Ferrari. All the usual shapes and details in a F1 are absolutely perfect and the color combination couldn’t be better. With two big ailerons on the edges, the car also presents some nice black wheels and the only point that I possibly mention is that the back tires should be slighter larger than the front ones.
The cockpit is Continue reading
