The TTs are kinda disappointing this year, but the big cars look cool, aside from the foot launcher. I still want to see some Ferraris or Lamborghinis though.

I actually think the $20 ones look pretty good, with a nice selection of rare/currently unavailable small parts.

Hey! Just came back from another trip to my TRU (United States), and they now are fully stocked on 2010 Racers....including all four of the larger foot pump cars, all 4 Tiny Turbo playsets (they added Security Smash), and all 4 Canister TT.

Here are the front shots, which were shown earlier in the thread:

Back shots showing the reccommended playsets:

8195 goes with Security Smash (8199)

8193 goes with Highway Chaos (8197)

(A picture on 8195 and 8193 shows a suggestion for combing the two vehicles)

8192 goes with Chopper Jump (8196)

8194 goes with Ramp Crash (8198)

(A picture on 8192 and 8194 shows a suggestion for combing the two vehicles)


Again, sorry for the quality, they were taken with my cell inside TRU.

I think the 2010 TT playsets are actually a lot better designed than last years. Last year they were mostly racing themed, where as these are more action oriented.

captainsamus, did you happen to notice if any of the standalone Tiny Turbos had names on them? I know which ones are Turbo Tow (8195, the red Hummer-like tow truck), Blue Bullet (8193, the light blue and orange racer), and Nitro Muscle (8194, the dark blue/purple car). However, I still don't know the name of the lime green truck (8192).

It's actually just called Lime Racer. The Lego naming team must have taken the day off. :-)

Thanks for that, captainsamus! :thumbup: Despite that name, I still like the set. I hope I can get to a Toys 'R' Us soon...

I like you, I was thinking the same thing.

Those stupid blower things are the most useless piece.  I can't stand them.  I was hoping they were forgotten after Life on Mars, then they came back for Mars Mission.  I wish they would just stop the pain.

All four pump action sets and possibly all the fold out track sets are at LEGO Stores (at least the one in Valley Fair):

Bad, Strong, Fast and Hero are the only ones, right?

"Kick cars" are:
Lego 7967 - Racers Fast
Lego 7968 - Racers Strong
Lego 7970 - Racers Hero
Lego 7971 - Racers Bad

An Italian store calls them Serpente, toro, lupo, bandito (Serpent, Bull, Wolf, Bandit).

That same store has prices for 8214 Police Gallardo (54.99) and 8211 Brick Street escape (49.99).
Tiny Turbos and Foldouts will be priced like 2009 sets (4.99 and 14.99 each), while "kick cars" will be 11.99.

I'm aware of that.  :laugh: What I mean to say is that I can't wait to see the LEGO set of that car.

I do hope it translates well. The car is just so darn shmexy.
