This is the front of the polybag. As you can see from the picture on the bottom right hand corner, it’s a pull back car.
Name: Scuderia Ferrari Truck
Theme: Racers (Ferrari)
Price: Fill up your car with every HK$400 of Shell V-Power and get one for HK$20
Brickset link: http://www.brickset....il/?Set=30191-1
And this is the back of the bag:
The whole set is shown under the set number.
All you can get from this set: an instruction, stickers (contained in a tiny paper box) and 40 pieces.
The stickers (many people hate them, I know) are not that bad in fact. They are nicely designed and produced. The name of the Truck “Scuderia” is printed on the three stickers with the Ferrari logo! That’s pretty cool I think.
1 sheet, 2 pages. The whole series is presented on the second page. Can’t wait to get all of them!!
Thanks for the reminder from member Rocketbilly. I've added the release schedule of the cars.
The six cars will be released in three different phases as follows. According to Shell, people can choose any one of the two cars available in that particular phase:
01 Aug - 20 Aug 2012 : Ferrari F150 Italia, Scuderia Ferrari Truck
21 Aug - 09 Sept 2012 : Ferrari F40. 250 GT Berlinetta
10 Sept - 30 Sept 2012 : 485 Italia, Ferrari FXX
The Promotional Leaflets (why bother?!)
Now please allow me to shift our focus from the Lego set to the promotional leaflets of the promotional event. Please bear with me; I have reasons to do this.
I have altogether received 3 different leaflets from the petrol/gas station. Here is the first one:
Doesn’t look special, right? Trust me, it’s very special indeed and I’ll show you after we finish building the set. Now turn to the second one:
Again the whole series is shown. But there’s something more!! Even though you may not read Chinese, you should notice the ratio “1:1”. According to the description, there’s going to be a promotional event showing a 1:1 LEGO Ferrari 150 Italia in a shopping mall. And people will be allowed to sit INSIDE the car!! Frankly speaking, I seriously doubt it because it will be very hard to manage the crowd. But I’ll go there definitely and find out if I’m right Another exciting thing in relation to this 1:1 model is that there’s a guessing game. Yes, you’re right… guess the number of bricks used to build this model:
So please give me some ideas. I’m not good at calculation/estimation. One of the prizes is a set of exclusive Lego minifigs!! But there’ll be ONE winner only!! (Just one only?! Too bad!!)
Good news can be found in the last promotional leaflet. Even though only one person can win the prize, there’s another way to obtain the minifigs.
According to the leaflet, one way to get this minifigs for FREE is to “submit” (original wording) 6 polybags at any Shell petrol/gas.
It appears to me that the torso is not printed... but I'm not sure.
Just a 5-min build. I applied all the stickers. I guess for a promotional set like this one, using stickers is unavoidable. Some more angles for this tiny yet decent truck:
Remember I said there’s something special about the first leaflet? Actually it's not just a promotional leaflet! When you open it up, you will have the starting line:
There’re altogether 6 slots for the 6 sets in this series.
Design 7/10 It’s simple but decent and is able to capture the essence of the Scuderia Ferrari Truck. Nevertheless, I think many builders will build their own trailer to “complete” this model.
Parts 7/10 The parts are common. But the one with the pull back motor should be a nice addition to anyone's collection.
Build 6/10 The build only involves 13 steps. But it’s still fun to build.
Playability 8/10 The pull back function is a terrific feature. After I’ve collected all other 5 models and put them all on the starting line… and then pull them back (need some more hands for sure), there’ll be lots of fun.
Price 7/10 HK$20 for 40 parts…it’s acceptable I think.
This is my first review posted on Eurobricks; obviously it’s not an insightful one. But practice makes perfect. Hopefully, my next review will be better.
