    New LEGO Speed Champions 2021 Rumors, Speculation

    Interestingly, it is still not on display on Lego UK Website, but a Promotion video on the same website shows the new Elva model at the end... see link below Toy Cars – Drive What You Love | Vehicles | LEGO.com | Official LEGO® Shop GB I just wish Lego gave more 'Love' and prime time to their Speed Champions series, as opposed to some other themes...

    I certainly will on some of my MOCs, particularly the recent vehicles I modelled (the vintage ones work well with 'smaller' wheels) Any ideas when the new SC Sets will be available for Pre-order on the official Lego Website? It has been a week now since some Toy retailers have started taking pre-orders (Sadly none in the UK yet) - why is Lego soooo slow

    Yes Central entertainment dashboard (probably with a sticker on the 1x1 tile) The bracket underneath is a minifig accessory (ref 65578) - quite an unusual part! ...and coincidently I used it for the RH side mirror on my latest MoC this week... see below Btw Did anyone spot the roof of the Dodge - It seems that Lego has introduced a new tile (6x4 with no studs)...

    Thanks ever so much LegoMFP_David, I am very glad you like this latest model of mine; personally, I am pleased with the style but not too much with its sturdiness: the model is a bit fragile on the front end, due to lack of support in the area, (mainly because I did not use any traditional fenders, which tend to connect front parts nicely together) What I really liked with this project, was to include some chrome parts (I never used them before). I contacted a Dutch company, which did a great job, even if: 1. it wasn't cheap (c.£1 per part). 2. The extra chrome layer means that it is tricky to assemble clip the parts together. All in all I am pleased with this 'Chroming' experiment and have already retrofitted so more chrome-plated parts on some of my other SC creations (exhausts pipes in particular)

    Cheers - at my end, I only have one fundamental question for them: WHY?? Well spotted - I think you are right - the round corner 2x2 part could be printed, however there is definitely a sticker on the tile round 1x1 quarter This could explain why the overall headlamp assy looks odd to me (i.e. gap between 2 parts + difference of colour depth).

    I think all of them use new rims, larger alloys and thinner profile tyres. For this reason, I suspect all of them have the border/lip between the rim and the tyre - not just the Jesko or GT. We can’t see it on the other models because the rims are black and Lego has photoshopped the pictures , imo. btw - from this whole lot, 1 particular feature deserves the Lego Oscar of Ugliness (and Laziness at the same time), I think: the headlamp stickers on the Ford GT. Seriously, were these stickers designed by a toddler? Even some AliExpress MOC stickers look better than that - that’s how low it is Given that the model doesn’t look much of anything without stickers anyway, Lego designers should have invested another couple of mins of their precious time, to do some half-decent stickers and redeem themselves a bit on the overall design front. Not like we have been already waiting for 1.5yr for this new SC series Anyway, If I buy this set (which I am increasingly likely not to) I’ll certainly replace those stickers by my own ones. Yep - so much better already, when introducing some curves on the front and rear wings. How could Lego get it so wrong? Hey Lego, time to hire some new designers for the future SC models...

    Unfortunately no, the small lip is still there, but clearly it does not show on black rim (thanks to some photoshopping of Lego’s official pics). However, it is visible on the silver rims (i.e. the Jesko’s ones) Question: what kind of Transparent red part is used for the Elva’s taillights? Any ideas?

    Yes; well spotted! I think you are right and this could also explain how they manage to fit a round dish, as a wheel cap inside a wheel, on both the C3 Corvette and the old Dodge. (That or they released a new dish with a smaller diameter than part 4740t All together, I find it quite exciting as larger alloys will look better on 8-studs Sportscars

    Can’t believe the mystery set is a bronco and another Ford GT40. Why???? enough of the Ford GTs - there are so many other interesting vintage sports cars Lego should source - why doing the same again?? Is the SC line just for the American market now as for the other sets - I am rather disappointed in overall. I had great hope for the Koenigsegg for instance, but I find the model does not do justice to the real car frankly. so, from all the cars, the McLaren is probably the only one I really like what a disappointment Lego!!!

    you just need to copy-paste the link of your Flick album - but paste as plain text - For instance, Your Flickr Album should have the following address: https ://www.flickr.com/photos/192846115@N02/albums/72157719019212818 By just pasting it here as a plain text, it will then be auto-translated as an hyperlink, which allows to flip through the Album pics.
