My brother and I were looking at some catalog scans recently, and realized that the set Vicious Viper (the green air-pump-powered car) has a spoiler that says "Big Snake". LEGO couldn't make that sound more suggestive if they tried. :hmpf:

Granted, it's one of the awesomer racers, with a snake-based aesthetic right down to the fangs in the front. So I guess that's probably just the AFOL in me talking. :tongue:

I like that one of the air-pump-powered Racers is also a motorcycle rather than a car. Really helps to add some variety. Wish it had a more creative structure, though, instead of the "straight horizontal beams connecting the wheels to the body" design.

And before anyone says anything, NO, they are NOT similar to any previous ones (except the hot rod)! :P

I'm a completely hooked Tiny Turbos fan, so these look like a must have. But I would have loved to see some radically new designs coming out. Like the 8656. I'm not saying it's beautiful - just that it's....well, different.

Hey guys!

2011 stand-alone can TTs have been added to Shop@Home. Will buy and review soon. :D

But what about the fold-out tracks? I'm not worried about the huge-mungo TT playset, as that usually comes out later in the year, but I'm wondering about the fold-out tracks. Think they will make them this year? :P

Good observation that none of those have shown up! Now I'm kind of wondering if that sort of content might instead be reserved for the licensed Cars sets next year (which will be System rather than Duplo, and pretty close to Tiny Turbos scale).

If so, I'll blow a gasket. :P

Anyways, I've ordered the four 2011 Tiny Turbos available. They should be here in a couple of days, so when they get here, I'll review them one by one! :D

Cool. I'm not really a big fan of the sets themselves (except a few that were REALLY cool) but they do usually have good parts in them.
