Lego 31066 – Space Shuttle Explorer

Here is another new great Creator set! The new Space Shuttle Explorer is a 3in1 box with exactly two hundred and eighty five pieces that features a reasonably detailed space shuttle with some nice elements to enjoy and a single astronaut with accessories. The other two building options are a small space station and a lunar vehicle

Considering the main option, I think that the shuttle looks absolutely fantastic. The traditional shapes are all there, the color scheme is also respected and best of all, it is all built with small pieces, which is excellent in terms of building experience.Lego-31066-Space-Shuttle-Explorer-creator

Lego 60613 – Coast Guard Starter Set

The Coast Guard starter set is the entry set of the new Lego City subtheme, and a great opportunity to get some additional or occasional Coast guard material, without having to spend too much money.

This small set has only seventy six pieces and features a beach surveillance car, a watch tower with a yellow buoy, three mini-figures (a couple of coast guards and a surfer in trouble in the sea) with plenty of accessories (a surf board, a rescue board, a couple of walkie-talkies,  binoculars) and finally a deadly shark.lego-60163-coast-guard-city-starter-set

I like this rescue car.  With a Continue reading

Speed Champions McLaren 720s – The First Pic

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.lego-75880-speed-champions-mclaren

Lego 75881-1: 2016 Ford GT & 1966 Ford GT40

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.Lego-75881-2016-Ford-GT-1966-Ford-GT40-speed-champions-5

Lego 60159 – Jungle Halftrack Mission

Here is a set from a new City Subtheme, the Jungle, that will be available on June, the Jungle Halftrack mission. With yellow vehicles, plenty of vegetation and new mini-figures, I think that it will surely have everything to be a success.

This set, particularly, has exactly three hundred and seventy eight pieces and features two Jungle vehicles (a truck with Rubber Tracks  and a sort of ATV), perfect for this environment, a couple of mini-figures, a black panther and finally a totem with a precious jewel that somehow will be taken by the team.lego-60159-jungle-halftrack-mission

The Truck looks absolutely cool. With Continue reading
