    New LEGO Speed Champions 2022 Rumors, Speculation

    For sure, it needs headlight stickers and another black sticker on the nose. I think the rear lights would also look good as a sticker, but I'm glad I went nutty with the details, even if it does make the build unstable as usual haha No idea what the diamond is from, but it's part 35649, a modified tile.

    New LEGO Speed Champions 2022 Rumors, Speculation

    I haven't seen anyone else try to make a Ginetta Akula, I'd like to see how the master builders at LEGO would handle it. I was chuffed that I managed to stumble into a solution for the funky nose and rear. Ginetta Akula by Henchmen4Hire, on Flickr
  3. I think LEGO needs to move their bum and give us another racing video game using designs like this.

    I'm gonna need instructions for Hardpan and Meltdown please :) Crab Boat and Stuntplane Astronaut are also wicked cool.

    [MOC] Microscale Offshore Powerboat

    Good stuff, I forget that quick small builds can be more satisfying than bigger ones that stress me out with all the troubleshooting they need haha

    And now a very serious topic...

    VAN DOORS! With all the mega useful new LEGO elements,has anyone tried rigging up new van door mechanisms? One of my favorites is simply using a horizontal panel and sandwiching it between two plates, but sometimes you want something complicated and greebly! I'm a few years behind on LEGO news, so I'm rusty and discovering new parts. Here's a WIP of a van I'm working on, gentle and savage feedback welcome.

    [MOC] Ferguson Tractor in Red/Grey (4000025 remake)

    *Borat voice* Niiiiiiice! Strap some rockets to it and it makes a cool hover hotrod haha
  8. The Cyclone is my favorite because of the distinct nose. I recently posted a Ginetta Akula, which also has a funky nose, and like the challenge they pose.

    With Speed Champions no longer being City / Town scale-

    What's interesting about that is that sometimes I needed around 100 more pieces per car to make an 8-wide than a 6-wide. When I bricklinked all the parts for my 8-wide cars, the total was roughly $30-$40US per car. I think LEGO is expensive to begin with, but after having built 8-wides, I think getting 2 whole cars at that scale for $50US is a sweet deal. The single 8-wides being only $20US is amazing.

    I'm not afraid of the Dentist, I'm afraid of the exorbitant bill that comes from visiting them lol

    I think it works, just maybe rotate the quarter-tiles on the sides of the "nose" to close the gap.

    With Speed Champions no longer being City / Town scale-

    I get the impression that's the general sentiment. However, I did buy some of the 6-wide Speed Champions stuff to make them 8-wide (which requires a trip to BrickLink). I think it would be more attractive to fans of 6-wide to buy 8-wide cars to convert, since you need less parts to make the conversion.

    [Stud.io MOC] My first TV!

    I miss those old knobs and flippy bits on things, made me feel like I was operating fancy equipment from the future. Now we're here and they're all gone, gah! If I recreated my first TV I'd have to spend the rest of my life being asked "Why is your oven in the living room?" haha
  15. Is this the new place to post Speed Champions MOCs? The switch to 8-wide was the greatest news I ever heard, I think I started building at that size a few years before Speed Champions even existed yet. Though admittedly, the lack of feedback on 8-wide MOCs over the years has made me realize I'm probably the only person who actually likes the scale. Christopher Stamp (SC Lead Designer) says one of the reasons the switch was made was because of constant community feedback "from day one" that the cars were too thin...well, I don't believe that at all. The 6-wide MOCs consistently get tons more attention than anything 8-wide. City fans want cars that fit in their cities, it's understandable. Another reason given for the change is because the new scale facilitates more accurate car designs. I completely agree, that's exactly why I went with 8-wide back then. I think people who are into City scale aren't necessarily into supercars or their hyper detail or authenticity, but more into abstract vehicles that look good enough in their City displays. The hyper details they focus on are in the buildings, not the vehicles. I don't think Speed Champions has even tenuous ties to City anymore, and can probably be considered a Special Theme now. What about you, have you seen a surge of popularity for 8-wide cars since the new scale launched?
