    2018 Speed Champions Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Even if the DB5 is F40 size, it could still mean Aston Martin for 2019 Speed Champions. It’s doing pretty well for itself, so I’d imagine LEGO would want to keep it going, especially with all the new parts the theme has introduced. Maybe I’m too optimistic, but I just don’t see it being discontinued when taking everything into account. Now, assuming we are getting another wave for 2019, I’m personally hoping for the Mercedes-Benz Project One, and if they have/get the licenses for Aston Martin and Mopars, an Aston Martin Valkyrie and a 1968 Dodge Charger.

    ^A DB5 would also be nice, and they don't need to have any James Bond licensing. They can just do what they did with the Mustang. It was only TRU exclusive in North America, iirc. Furthermore, the 2017 and 2018 sets are now on the Target website for those within the United States. Also, automotive websites have been reporting on the theme since it's inception, and the theme has improved since and have added numerous new parts, and there's also the factor of licensing costs. I remember reading that Ferrari and Bugatti are not cheap licenses to get, and if they have licenses, they gotta use them, or it will be a waste. With the positive reception and the costs of new parts and licensing, it's likely not going anywhere. There's still a lot that they can do with it. assuming they get new licenses for the theme. The lack of a second wave is definitely strange, as I don't recall any other major theme that only has one wave per year. I would like to think that will change eventually, but I am not holding my breath.

    I had to order mine because Toys R Us decided it was only going to stock 5 of the 6. I might attempt some slight modding on the 488 and 250 GTO. Mainly, to fill the latter’s rear gap and see if it’s possible to move the 488’s cabin forward by one stud.

    Toys R Us does have the theme. It’s Walmart and Target that does not. My only guess is that’s some sort of deal between TLG and TRU over the theme, because I don’t know any other reason as to why they aren’t in other big box stores. With TRU closing 180 stories(thankfully, the only one nearby here is safe), maybe something will change. I still say that the attention it’s been getting from automotive sites is a big plus, though.

    [Speed Champions MOC] McLaren F1 LM

    I hope this build does the legendary McLaren F1 justice. It’s my favorite build so far. Only thing I want to change right now is the two 1x2 curved slopes in the center of the hood. I want to use a 2x2 instead.

    I don’t see why it wouldn’t continue into 2019. It’s been well received by automotive websites, and they invested a number of new part moulds into it. I would certainly love a second wave for 2018, and I don’t think it’s that farfetched to think. One thing I noticed is that there isn’t a $50-$70 set this time around. In the previous waves, you had a $30 set, a $50-$70 set, then the biggest set. This wave has a $30(maybe $40, but $30 seems plausible), and then straight to the biggest set.

    I’m definitely gonna try to get all of these.
  8. I may use this thread to post other SC MOCs later on, but first, here is my Ferrari 288 GTO Evoluzione: 1963 Corvette Grand Sport Roadster:
  9. Building these two has given me a even greater respect for the AFOLs who build six wide models of real cars. I thought the S7 would be more straightforward than the Vulcan. It was much harder than the Vulcan.

    If we're talking a museum setting, I would imagine a 250 LM, 250 GTO, and and another car from the 250 series. The 288 and 599 are awesome, but if we were to get a musuem setting, three of Ferrari's legendary 250 series seems like a better fit. Personally, I think an Enzo and/or a Carrera GT would make great Speed Champions sets. IMO, it is only a matter of time before older cars start to appear in the $15 sets, especially if they're sticking to a select few automakers.

    There's also the chance that we might start more older cars from these manufacturers. Outside of the Ferrari 812 Superfast, Ferrari 488 GT3, 2018 Porsche 911 GT3, maybe 2017 Ford GT road car, maybe a Ford Shelby GT350R, and the Hoonicron, I can't think of many more newer cars that Lego haven't done already. I doubt this is going to happen, but, I also doubt that people wouldn't love a classic 911/911 GT1/Carerra GT, 1965/1967/1969 Boss 429 Mustang, or an 288 GTO/F40/F50/Enzo in Speed Champions. Had there been one more manufacturer including in this wave, then I could see mostly newer cars. However, as it stands now, I'm not sure how they would produce this wave with just brand new cars. Kids would still enjoy them, because cool cars are cool cars, be it brand new or twenty years old. Kids would also learn about these old cars as well, especially so if one parent or relative is an enthusiast. AFOLs into cars would love seeing old gems of the automotive world in Lego minifigure scale. I'd say the odds of older cars being more frequent in this theme are getting more likely.

    I wish they would include an older car with the smaller sets, but, I doubt that's gonna happen in 2018. It would be pretty sweet if we got something like a 911 GT1 or a 250 GT0 as a $15 set. I also think Ferrari should get a Le Mans theme set like Porsche and Ford did. If so, the modern car would likely be the 488 GTE, but, I am not sure what the classic car would be. Maybe a 250 LM?

    MOC: Some vehicles.

    Thanks for the kind words, but, I can't take all the credit, as I did follow a building instructions video to build the Diablo, hence why I posted the video as well. I just blacked out mine and used my preferred wheels and tires for 6-wide cars. As for an official Speed Champions Lamborghini, they would probably have to make new pieces anyway due to all the angles and wedges Lamborghini cars have, unless they can figure out a way to do it with existing parts while keeping it durable.

    MOC: Some vehicles.

    I haven't really been posting here, so here are some various cars I've built recently. All except for two were built with help from YouTube videos, which I will link to. Lamborghini Diablo. Source of building instructions: Lykan Hypersport. Source of building instructions: This is my attempt at modernized the Screaming Patriot set from 1991. Koenigsegg CCGT Source of building instructions: 1970 Chevy Monte Carlo Source of building instructions: This was originally an attempt to build the limo from Palace Cinema, but, that vehicle proved to be really awkward looking, so I had some fun with this.

    2018 City Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I'm still waiting for a new ambulance. 2018 marks six years since the last one, not counting the plane from a year or two back. I am actually interested in the Mountain Police sets, as I have a rural police force that could use more work :P
