  1. 21 reviews so far - that's a lucky number! Well done WhiteFang! Informative and great pics as always. I like these kind of special releases even if they're harder to come by. Shop@Home did have then up a couple of times but they sold out very quickly! Keep up the hard CMF-review job my friend!
  2. It's on the front page and in the first post in this thread.
  3. I'm sure he is saving you for the 24th !
  4. But not the same ones as yesterday !
  5. Nobody can win twice so that won't happen !
  6. 190 approved, so more than 75% chance of winning! Yeah, the (s)election is rigged. Do you want a re-count ;-)?
  7. Starting today you can go here and check out the winners each day for 24 days! Thanks to Siegfried for the tech-behind-the-scenes and LuxorV for the lovely calender background ! And all of you that participated! Check out all the cool moc´s here. And yes - keeping up with the tradition with snafus, the prizes haven´t been delivered by Santa yet so it´s even a bigger thrill this year what who wins ! But I hope that can be revealed pretty soon!
  8. Designed to Inspire Tomorrow’s Racing Drivers, Engineers and Designers – Ford’s Le Mans Victories in LEGO® Bricks • Ford race cars that won 1966 and 2016 Le Mans 24 Hours will be available as part of the exclusive LEGO® Speed Champions range of models • New kit brings to life iconic Ford GT40 and today’s Ford GT race car. Minifigures, chequered flag and trophy will help to bring famous victories to life again and again • Designing the exclusive kit was a “dream project” for LEGO design lead Craig Callum, a former car designer who races Fords in his spare time COLOGNE, Germany, Nov. 29, 2016 – It’s a gift 50 years in the making that could set your child on the path to becoming a racing legend. The iconic Ford GT40 and new Ford GT that won Le Mans 24 Hours in 1966 and 2016 are being brought to life in LEGO® bricks. The new LEGO Speed Champions set will include both cars as well as racing driver minifigures, a chequered flag and even a trophy to make it easy to recreate those history-making victories. “Many people in my team grew up with the legend of Ford’s history-making 1966 victory – and experienced the excitement of building and design for the first time through LEGO bricks,” said Dave Pericak, global director, Ford Performance. “This kit is a powerful way to tell our Le Mans story, and will hopefully inspire the race drivers, engineers, and designers of the future.” Ford won at Le Mans earlier this year after returning to the scene of what was a historic 1-2-3 clean sweep 50 years previously. The LEGO Group worked closely with Ford’s design and licensing teams on every detail of the 1966 winning car, and the new Ford GT race car. “This was a dream project – with a lot of pressure. The Ford GT40 is one of the most iconic race cars of all time, and the new Ford GT is just incredible,” said Craig Callum, head of design, LEGO Speed Champions. “Designed for children, but with grown-ups fans in mind too, we know these models will be closely scrutinized for authenticity.” Callum, who in his spare time races a Ford Model A hot-rod, and started out as a designer of full-sized cars, helped develop ten prototypes before the final versions of each model were selected, all created from existing LEGO bricks. The new 2016 Ford GT and 1966 Ford GT40 set will be available to order at from March 1, 2017, with a recommended retail price of €34.99 (£29.99). A Ford Mustang set is on sale now, alongside a Ford F 150 Raptor with trailer and Ford Model A hot rod. # # # Editor’s notes • Le Mans 2016 race win The #68 Ford GT of Sébastien Bourdais (FRA), Joey Hand (US) and Dirk Müller (GER) crossed the finish line as the winner in the GTE-Pro class of the 2016 Le Mans 24 Hours. • Le Mans 1966 podium sweep The #2 Ford GT40 Mark II driven by Bruce McLaren (NZ) and Chris Amon (NZ) took first place at Le Mans in 1966 – leading a Ford clean sweep of the three podium positions. The 1966 race was Ford’s first ever win at Le Mans, and the first of four successive victories at the iconic endurance race. • The 2016 Ford GT The ultra-high-performance Ford GT supercar is the most advanced Ford production vehicle ever, featuring the latest in lightweighting, aerodynamics and EcoBoost engine technology – an innovation showcase for the Ford brand. • The 1966 Ford GT40 Mark II The Ford GT40 Mark II featured a lightweight aluminium chassis, rear-wheel drive and a 7.0-litre Ford V8 engine. The car was named the GT (Grand Touring) with the 40 representing its height at the top of the windscreen in inches. • LEGO® Speed Champions LEGO Speed Champions puts children in the driver seat, as they build and race some of the most famous cars ever produced, with authentic designs and exciting accessories to inspire young imaginations.
