    LEGO Speed Champions 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    ? Don’t worry I had never heard of them until a few months ago.

    Please remember that the set is based on two race cars and is licenced through Squadra Corse. Both cars feature stickers in real life (as do all race cars), and additionally why would Squadra Corse allow LEGO to produce these cars without any stickers of their partners who support them such as Pirelli and Roger Dubuis.

    Totally agree with you. I also think a rallycross car would look pretty neat in amongst the new 8 wide models. Nice mods on the audi too mate?

    The schedule is typically 5-6 cars in the first quarter, plus the possibility of another car released later in the year.

    Something that I appreciate with the new sets is an addition of a hair piece for each minifigure. That just adds to the ability to display the driver outside of the car without either having his face covered or no head piece at all.

    The GT-R looks great, best car of the wave in my opinion. Only negative thing is how small the wheels are in comparison to the car, but none the less a great job by the designers.

    Agree that the back looks terrible, but to be honest in real life it looks pretty ordinary.

    The GT-R has a more simplistic shape than the Ferrari, so hopefully the designers have translated it nicely into brick form. It also important to note that a GT-R is a lot taller than most Ferrari’s and McLarens.

    As neither the Ferrari or Audi have separate builds, I doubt it, but I guess we won’t know until it is released. The sets title is Nissan GT-R Nismo, but given the previous history of SC race spec cars, I wouldn’t be surprised. But I feel like it will be the road car.

    The Ferrari looks awesome and is definitely the best car of the wave yet. The interior of it also looks very neat, especially when compared to the older SC cars with random colours place everywhere.

    I too am excited for the change in scale, although the sets so far have not impressed me that much (especially the prices). As for an 8 wide Porsche turbo, I haven’t seen one yet, but after the new 6 wide windshields are released for sale I’m sure some one will will make an 8 wide 75895. Oh, my bad. I know that stickers aren’t ideal, but for the price of the sets and the amount used I think that it would be unviable for LEGO to have printed bricks.

    I feel like because on the real car the lights are at such an angle and them self’s are an odd shape that it would have been hard for the designers to make out of bricks.

    Do you guys think that the switch to 8 wide will have an impact on sales? For most people the price is probably more important than the scale.

    The more I look at these new sets the more I’m disappointed. It seems like LEGO has gone back to the early SC days, were all the details were created by stickers. The last wave had ingenious part use, like the Senna’s headlights. And I also get the impression that brands are having more of a say on what cars are included. I doubt that LEGO would include either the I-Pace or the Urus on their own choice. So far I’m personally not liking what I am seeing, but I’ll have to what to see them in person to make a final judgment.

    Agree, especially considering you only get 100 extra bricks with the Lamborghini set.
