Here is a nice ten dollars set. The new Speed Record Car is a City set with only seventy eight pieces with a pretty color scheme and a mini-figure, the pilot, wearing a traditional Octan red and green suite with a big printed logo.
At the front, the long orange nose hides a tiny wheel but capable of reaching several hundred miles per hour. The cockpit is protected by a big aerodynamic windshield and inside the pilot has the usual: a seat (where is stays almost lying down…) and a steering wheel (better not to move it quickly).
Here we go for some more City sets! Eleven new boxes have been revealed, showing a few more addition to the great vehicles subtheme, some new Mountain Police boxes and what it seems the return of the Mining subtheme with four pretty interesting sets.
At the first glance, it’s impossible not to look to the Mountain Police Headquarters that shows, among lots of great features, some unusual cages for animals but I must say that the mining sets are also really nice with plenty of great machines, action and playability. As it concerns to the other two high speed vehicles, they didn’t impress me too much.
