    New LEGO Speed Champions 2021 Rumors, Speculation

    On LEGO.com in Australia there is all but the Corvette set and the Jesko.

    Having seen these images i am disappointed. I expected much more out of almost all of these sets apart from the Elva. Jesko: In my opinion the front is a bit too tall and the splitter is too thick. However i am impressed with the rest of the car, especially the rear as the brick built lights look great. Jesko - 8/10 Elva: I don't have many complaints but the nose is slightly too pointy. Would have liked to see transparent front lights, but brick built lights are better than stickers any day of the week. The rear lights are slightly too high and close together but should be modifiable enough. Elva - 8/10 Supra: I am not sure how TLG made such a meal of recreating such a beautiful but easy enough to recreate car. The headlight stickers look terrible and the car is too blocky and bland at the back. Can't say there is much which is actually good about it as this was probably the car i had the highest hopes for. Supra - 5/10 Corvettes: I don't mind the C8R, however it is too reliant on stickers and does not have the characterful point of its nose. Now the C3 is another thing. The front is acceptable but not great. However the rear is atrocious and i am not sure i have seen a worse brick built attempt at the rear of a car. TLG failed to capture the C3's curves and is a big fail. C8R - 8/10 C3 - 6/10 Dodge's: I had never known about this challenger existing before this set was found in a store, and i still have no connection too it For what it is it does not look bad but i am just not interested in it. However the dragster is a different story. Having seen (and not buying) the Technic dragster on sale for quite a while now, i am not sure why they needed a licensed dragster where not much is different apart from less functions on the speed champions version. I am not sure why i can buy a dragster which can be pulled back and launched like a dragster is, for less than a third of the price of a set which has a slightly smaller dragster without this function, along with a car that is rather basic and that is it. No extra accessories or anything. I am just confused about why this set came to be. Challenger - 7/10 Dragster - 6/10 Ford's: I was surprised and slightly disappointed, when i found out the third two pack was a ford and that nearly all the big american car brands had two cars each in this wave. However i am neutral about this set. I don't feel the GT is necessary, as we had the same model with different livery 5 years ago. Also the headlights would be sooooo much better if they were brick built as half a Lego set these days is made up of stickers. The Bronco R is something i had never heard of until now and i am still not interested in it. I had heard of the old Bronco though i know little about it, and would have been more accepting of this if they made an old model rather than a new one. However i think they have recreated it well anyway so for something i am not interested in it is ok. GT - 7/10 Bronco R - 7/10

    These models look magnificent. cannot pick a favourite and they look as if not more realistic than official Lego ones.

    I hope so but i think not, as Lego will probably try to limit the number of new pieces they have to make to a minimum.

    It would also be great if they could continue their following of Audi Quattro and have the new Audi A1 Quattro, as well as an old 1981 Quattro A1.

    I'm hoping for an Aston Martin, but i think it will be more likely that the final set will be a Ferrari or a Porsche, as there is usually at least one of these most years, and neither have a set currently lined up for this year. As for it being an F1 set, it might be an Aston or more likely i think a Ferrari SF21 and a Ferrari road car.

    Just had a look and hoping Lego includes these pieces in the new Speed Champions sets in June

    Sounds good. Are you going to put in real headlights rather than stickers for your Chiron?

    As an Aussie i'd be hoping for a Holden Tribute but that is unlikely to happen. So more realistically i'd love to see an Aston Martin set Maybe a 1970's V8 Vantage with a Valkyrie as well

    MOD: Speed Champions 8-wide

    Well done this looks amazing. The conversion really works.

    This is great! I really like all the conversions between 6-wide and either 7-wide or 8-wide. I am also someone who has been following these posts to keep up with leaks and i thought i might join in to share some of my mocs and watch for news.
