  1. I like how the series lends itself to other suggestive themes very intentionally. Like with very little effort, or just imagination, you can do the Steve McQueen chase scene with the 60's mustang and the charger, or Fast and Furious, or the 488 GT3 clearly being Christine Neilson's championship car and pilot, both driver and car, secondary stickers and helmets for both Ferrari F1's for both Kimi and Vettel (need both sets for the team), McLaren F1 obviously being Button, and many other details that add to the richness and how close they can come to doing something without a license... The mercedes pit team manager? Doesn't get much more blatant than that ;D Oh, and the "triple crown" P1, LeFerrari, and 918 that Top Gear made notorious that every other journalist copied? Some might call these easter eggs but it shows the dedication of authenticity to the series Lego has that can't really be demonstrated in other series.
  2. 3 days before a double vip?! Unless the 2x vip is only for specific sets... hmm
  3. Looks like we are getting these sets at the end of January. You can see one in a advert on the brick fan site. So... two waves perhaps???
  4. Of all the Dodges... they chose fast n furious and a generic charger? I love the whole speed champions line, but this set might be the least interesting of them all.
  5. I do love how historic cars have become a main stay in the series.
  6. This! And with the street version already done, makes for a great base for the/a GT version. Chevy has been testing a MR vett for decades. It’s so unorthodox to the brand, we’re likely to not see a version beyond Porches one off MR 911 for GT racing only.
  7. What a tease! A leaked catalog but all speed champions or blank! The fun never stops :) But at least we know the manufacturers.
  8. The color combo is great, and it looks like only 4 stickers other than what we can't see on the back... Also some kind of tie-in with some online functionality?
  9. I agree that would be the most impactful idea involving Dodge, but doesn’t that also require the NASCAR license? But reguardless, Lego continuing the Speed Champions line means what ever it is will be of substance. It has too if the product line is going to continue beyond 2019.
  10. Could the Renolt rally car that was in LEGO ideas be a possible addition? Not officially speed champions but perhaps using a slot as next years LEGO car offerings? its a stretch, but it is the same scale and theme...
  11. If Target and Walmart are now carrying them this is great news! And sales will be MUCH higher! TRU went out of business for a reason, and locking up any series exclusives to a toy only store is very limited. Especially this product line.
  12. I guess when there is real information to share a proper 2019 thread will be started here.
  13. Makes sense, this thread was started back in mid July 2017 so perhaps we’ll learn more sooner than later. And perhaps that will trigger a new thread to be started.
  14. Isn’t it about this time of year when leaks start slipping out for next years lineup? Even if just verbal ones from trusted sources?
