  1. What do you think will be coming out of the Speed Champions series in 2021? Personally, I think there is a chance for something from IMSA. There may be such sets: Corvette C7.R (small set) Koenigsegg Jesco (small set) Porsche Taycan (small set) Toyota Ts050 Hybrid (double set) Aston Martin Vulcan or Vantage GTE (double set) And maybe something else with hypercar because of the WEC season 2020/2021
  2. According to @dimaks13, Speed Champions will indeed have life beyond Toys'R'Us here in the United States, continuing on for at least a fifth year. So, having said that, what would you wish or hope to see for the theme next year and potentially beyond?
  3. Hi there, I have been collecting the Speed Champions from the beginning, but this is my first real MOC in Speed Champions 8-wide style. Tesla 3 by Jens Peter, on Flickr Tesla 3 by Jens Peter, on Flickr I hope you like it ( and can recgonize it...)

    [MOC] #65 Nissan GTR-35

    [MOC] #65 Nissan GTR-35 I like #76896, but I still prefer 6 studs wide for my Lego city. So I designed one in 6 studs wide. I also created a video for this MOC:
  6. This is my entry for @truncate_mocs' build-off contest on Instagram. The front shares the same technique as my Aventador moc, while the sides are exactly same as the 2020 SC Huracan set. Pleased to have completed this, because this is one of my toughest builds to date, lots of trials & failures on the front end. Thanks for viewing! KMP

    [MOC] Toyota GT-One TS020

    Pleased to have completed this, but it's a little bittersweet as even with the smaller wheels the nose is not quite low enough. But I can't change that as I had to put emphasis on the smoothness of the slope from tip of the nose to the top of the mudguard. Thanks for viewing :) KMP

    [MOC] BMW M4

    A little fortunate to have found this front grille solution, was sorting bricks and that part inspired me. Mixed feelings on the binoculars as exhaust pipes, it seems too glaring and a little too big. Overall it looks more like a G30 5series actually, but I'm glad to have checked this off my bucket list. Thanks for viewing! KMP

    [MOC] Aston Martin Vulcan

    Hey, Here's my attempt at an 8L Aston Martin Vulcan. It's been a blast recreating all those complex shapes, from the mouth to the spoiler. As a bonus, you can fit TWO whole minifigs in that model, where some of the recent cars in the Speed Champions Line can't even fit one... I've built it with real bricks but i'm still missing 40ish pieces in the right color. The inverted 1x2 curved slopes in blue just got released in a Minions set. And that canopy doesn't exist without a print... For now. Thanks for reading !
  10. I've been making a number of Speed Champions-scaled cars lately and I didn't want to spam up the forum with a bunch of threads, so I decided to put 'em all here! They're posted in the approximate order that I built them (many were worked on at the same time). Original Builds: 1972 Datsun 240z The color scheme is based on the 1972 Ontario Motor Speedway pace car livery. I'm most happy with the angled cabin and the dual exhaust. 1970 Oldsmobile 442 W30 The peak performance year for the 442! The ram air scoops are simply represented by 1x4 tiles - an older version of this build had a much more complex build for this section, but it made the car too tall, and the overall silhouette and shaping was more important to me. I'm most happy about the radiator grill and the tail lights. v.1.1 update: lower profile mirrors now that the little light cover piece comes in yellow. 1968 Oldsmobile 442 I built the '70 first, but my dad's old car was a '68 so I felt like making this one as well. I think it turned out better, even. I do intend to change the vent just in front of the windscreen to make it a little more subtle. My favorite parts of this build are the side stripes and the 1/2 plate-raised portion of the hood. v.1.1 update: more subtle vent in front of the windscreen. 1970 Chevrolet Camaro RS/Z28 Still my favorite car I've ever done. The seed piece for this build was the ice skate, which immediately jumped to mind when I saw the split bumper on the R/S version of the 2ng gen Camaro. 1969 AMC Super Stock AMX Kind of an odd car; a 2-seater steel body muscle car with a short wheelbase. Essentially, a shortened Javelin. I built this in order to use the 2 blue wheel arches that came with the Ferrari Ultimate Garage set. v.1.1 update: removed the sloped shoulders to make the build sleeker and more stable and consistent. 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo Yeah, not so much of a "speed" car. We bought a used one as a cheap second car a few months ago, so I was inspired to build it, so I'm throwing it in here anyway. This is easily the most complex, ridiculous build I've ever done. It has 265 pieces, 117 of which are attached sideways or upside-down. 1972 Datsun 240z A street car variant of the 240z I built before. Fender-mounted mirrors, simple non-sport wheels, single exit exhaust, no splitter, no spoiler, no livery. 1970 Plymouth Hemi Cuda This one took a really long time from concept to completion. I'm very happy with the color scheme and shaping, but I think it needs about an extra stud of length at the hood maybe? Will probably re-examine soon. v.2.0 update: the previous version of this was always my least favorite car that I had built. It felt too short, too stubby, too low to the ground. It was just overall too small, especially placed next to any other SC car, and a bit... chunky. This is a complete overhaul and rebuild. I kept the old cabin, headlight/grill, and taillight designs. I lengthened the rear deck (and entire car) by one stud and increased its ride height by one plate. I redesigned the sides to be sleeker and accentuate the rocker panels better. The front and rear lower fascias were rebuilt as well to be a little sleeker and to highlight the exhaust pipes. The interior also had to be completely redone to accommodate the method used to build the new sides. Though it may look very similar at a glance, I believe this only has about 50% of its pieces in common with the original design. I sure like it a lot more now! 1967 Pontiac GTO I had the idea for the taillights from a failed attempt at a Firebird and it all came together from that. All of the metal trim on this one is flat silver instead of light gray, which is neat. It also has a more-detailed-than-usual cabin, with a reclining seat, shifter, wheel, gauge, and a hood-mounted tachometer visible from inside. Overall, one of my favorites. 1970 Chevrolet C10 with tiny house The truck is a classic C10 short bed. I'm quite happy with the gap between the cabin and the bed. The tiny house is hinged and has a full interior: a small kitchen with a microwave and a sink, a bathroom with a toilet and shower, folding chairs and a table that store on the wall, and stairs (with built-in storage) that lead to a lofted bed. Outside, it has a porch with stairs, gas and battery power, and folding chocks to support it when detached (or opened). 1969 AMC Hurst/SC Rambler The livery was a ton of fun on this one. The arrow pointing to the scoop is the detail that made me want to attempt to build it in the first place. I also enjoyed the little details like the red, white, and blue headrest and the blue wheels. 1970 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler The geometry of the fascia is so fascinating on this car that I just had to try it. I really like the colors and form factor of this one. The taillights were interesting, too: friction-fitted with flexible rubber Technic elements. 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 (John Wick's car) I built this when I was getting hyped for John Wick 3 to come out. Finally had to try my hand at a Mustang. My favorite elements here are the raked cabin and the chin spoiler. 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback / Shelby GT500 (Eleanor from the 2000 remake of Gone in 60 Seconds) My father-in-law saw my John Wick Mustang and loved it because he thought it was Eleanor. I told him it's not, but I can certainly make that one, too! I'm very happy with the shaping on the hood, plus getting the fascia to look right with the extra fog lamps. 1969 Dodge Coronet Super Bee The official 1970 Charger was a really cool build, but I really wanted its tail stripe to be brick-built. My desire to build such a thing led to this model instead, a Super Bee in classic yellow/black livery. This was my first attempt at double side-by-side headlights, using the somewhat classic binoculars technique. I also tried angling the whole tail to give it a sloped rear deck, but it just looks... saggy. That needs revising, I think. I really love the taillights, though! v.1.1 update: removed the angled tail and swapped the fenders for the newer Speed Champions ones, because the old City ones are ridiculously rare and expensive. 1964 Ford Fairlane Thunderbolt This model took me longer to design, from start to finish, than anything else I've made. It took so long to figure out how I even wanted to attempt the bodywork, much less accomplish it. I'm really pleased with it, though! I really like the front fenders and the fascias. 1964 Ford Fairlane Gasser I have wanted to try a gasser for a while. This one was really fun! I removed the hood, the "chrome", and the bumpers. I added a solid bar rear bumper and a lifted solid front axle. The front received a moon tank, and the exhaust was routed through the fenders. I finished it off with even fatter drag tires on the rear, angle cut velocity stacks, and a show car color scheme. 1970 Chrysler 300 Hurst Edition I really wanted to try this one for the Hurst color scheme: white, dark tan, and gold. I went with a medium nougat interior, too. The big challenges here were the hood bulge shaping and the rear fender covers. I couldn't use the same technique from the Fairlane for the rear fenders because they have that gold trim on them, so I came up with a new method that involves bars nested into cheese slopes. 1969 Chevrolet Nova SS I am SO HAPPY with how this one came out! The big thing here is that the cabin and rear deck are vertically offset by 1/2 a plate in order to smooth out the profile, which required a custom chassis so it would still fit a minifig. I'm really happy with the shaping on the front fascia, but my favorite detail is actually the sloped rear edge of the hood bulge. 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T I wanted to build a purple car for a long time, and somebody on Rebrickable showed me their recolor of the official SRT Demon in purple, so it inspired me to try a classic Challenger. I wanted to try something new for the headlights, since binoculars can be a bit clunky. My favorite detail is the use of light gray flag pieces to fill a gap between the taillights and the rear bumper. 1970 AMC Rebel "The Machine" Every time I build an AMC, I gotta do the optional American color scheme. The livery is super interesting on this one, and I love the combination hood scoop/external tachometer. My favorite detail is the R/W/B stripes in the front fascia. 1979 Ford Mustang This turned out to be a tricky one, especially since I really wanted to build a car in dark red, which introduced a lot of parts limitations. The internals of this thing are a lot of weird connections jammed into a very tight space, especially since it still has a full interior for a minifig. It's also not any specific model or trim package, because I wanted to build several iconic elements of the model year: the window louvers, hood scoop, black trim stripe, sun roof, and spoiler. 1981 Chevrolet El Camino An El Camino is probably the car I've gotten the most requests for ever, so here's an '81 - specifically, the one that appeared in the series finale of Breaking Bad, and of course the standalone El Camino. This was a bit of a collaborative build, as some of the best ideas (like building the hood stripes sideways) came from a friend on another forum. I had some fun making the minifig to match, too. "Death Proof" 1971 Chevrolet Nova Since I made a Nova a little bit ago (February, I think?), it made sense to build Stuntman Mike's unique Death Proof Nova as well. It's a very similar build, with a couple of things changed out of necessity in the color swap, but I also redesigned the front fascia. As much as I love how the front end was built on the original Nova model, someone on Rebrickable (correctly) pointed out that the aggressive angle looked more like a Chevelle than a Nova. This new build feels less clever, but is undoubtedly more accurate to the real car. The graphics on the hood are custom UV printed because I don't really like stickers. 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle This one was modeled after a car my dad's wife owned when she was young, a lime '71 Chevelle SS 350 coupe with a white top and stripes. This was a super fun build with some novel shaping, such as the gently sloped hood bits, the 1/5 stud recessed rear deck, and the bodywork under the rear bumper. Also, I was really happy to finally build an original design in lime green. I really like the citrus-toned high impact colors. 1973 Buick Gran Sport I think this is my new favorite build. There were a lot of curves and angles to figure out and it was a very fun to design. I redesigned the rear of the cabin several times until I was satisfied with the pillars, but they're now the highlight of the model, I think. Almost every part of this build required some kind of weird trick to make it work the way I wanted. Modifications: everything below is a modification of somebody else's design; in this case either LEGO or my favorite builder Jonathan Elliott. That is to say, I am not the creator of any of the following original designs, I have only tweaked and modified them. 1966 Ford GT40 From set 75881. I really love this car! 75881 is my favorite Speed Champions set so I didn't want to change much - I just wanted to lower it, because the original car is legendarily short (the "40" in GT40 refers to a height of 40 inches/102cm). The smaller City-scale wheels I used are extremely uncommon a quantity of only 1 was provided in just 1 Architecture set (but as of 2020, Pearl Gold is now available and much more common). Oh, and despite being dramatically lowered, it still fits a minifig! 1974 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0 From set 75888. Very minor mods here: I just enclosed the cabin in glass using 1 x 2 x 3 panels and added spokes to the wheels using the Technic 3L axle with a stud on the end. Enclosing the cabin this way was sort of a proof of concept that I later used on the Olds 442 builds above. 1971 Lamborghini Miura P400SV Original by Jonathan Elliott. I love the original model and wanted one of my own, so I reverse engineered it from breakdown photos he'd posted, and then started changing things to suit me better. My modified version fits a minifig and has a tan leather interior, flush rocker panels, new rocker panel intake scoops, chrome exhaust, and some slightly altered connections and structure. Again, all credit to Jonathan Elliott for the original design and for his blessing to show off my modified version. Ford Model A hot rod From set 75875. The original had a really ridiculous rake due to the giant rear tires and lowered rear axle. I leveled the axles, chopped/dropped the top, lowered the engine bay, and changed the exhaust to more of an open header design (though with only 2 pipes per side, maybe it's more like two open collectors). I retained the swappable engine feature, and added a third engine with velocity stacks. 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 From set 75874. The original is my least favorite Speed Champions set by far, so this build has some extensive revisions. Most importantly, I lowered the body, reduced (but retained) the rake, moved the cabin back, and gave it a rear windshield. 1970 Dodge Charger R/T From set 75893. I like this model a lot, but I don't love the tiny little rear window, so I made a new one with staggered cheese slopes. v.1.1 update: brick-built the red stripe on the tail, too. 1965 Ford Mustang / Hoonicorn V1 Original by LEGO as a gift to Ken Block, though this is based more on its prototype and the original concept art. I really wanted this to become an official set (and a lot of us thought it would), but when it didn't make the cut, I modified the heck out of it and made my own. This is more of a MOC than a mod at this point, but it does retain the original proportions and overall shaping, so it's more fair to call it a mod still. I'm most happy with the shaping of the tail and rear fascia. The headlights required some extreme lateral thinking, but it's a working, legal connection. v.1.1 update: sleeker C pillar, since the "hollow 45 degree slope" piece now comes in black. 1974 Lancia Stratos HF Stradale Original by Jonathan Elliott. Again, he's my favorite builder, and I wanted to take another crack at one of his amazing models. At first, I only wanted to modify it to allow a minifig to fit, but I ended up changing quite a bit: the sides are rounded, the rear deck is a bit extended and less gappy, the tail is more rounded and indicators are added, the exhaust was reshaped, and the louvers were re-done to use panel pieces. Of course an interior was added with textured seat, wheel, and gauges. 1980 Chevrolet K5 Blazer From set 75810. Just a recolor and stud delete, mainly. I really loved the K5 but didn't want the whole set, and teal has been making such a comeback, this seemed like a fun choice. I did have to redesign the internals for the hood/grill around the limited part selection in this color, though.

    [MOC] Porsche 935 K3

    Overall I'm quite pleased with it, wanted to brick build the 1979 Kremer Racing livery but that's difficult to get right, so went with Martini livery instead. Just got reminded that this looks like Autobot Jazz too. Thanks for viewing :) KMPMOCS

    [MOC] Ferrari 488 Pista

    Wasn't able to use the SC wheels because it would make the front too tall and also create collision between tyres and underside of the headlight area. Can't build in red too as the 36841 bracket doesn't exist in red yet. Due to the lockdown I ran short of cut slope pcs to build accurate side air intakes, and the rear diffuser needs some improvement that hopefully can happen once it's buildable in red. Thanks for viewing :) KMPMOCS

    [MOC] Lamborghini Veneno

    Decided against using the new SC Lambo Huracan windscreen because it's printed. Hope nobody saw that the steering wheel is too tall ! Thanks for viewing :) KMPMOCS

    Ginetta Akula

    Sometimes all the pieces seem to fall into place...I wouldn't know, this was another brain-bending build. The interior is mostly hollow for now, and I need to nudge some parts into place, but it's 99% done. I think only a few stickers would be needed; vents on the sloped nose, headlights, and the Ginetta logos. Ginetta Akula by Henchmen4Hire, on Flickr

    [MOD] Resistance Jaguar i-Pace

    The recently released Jaguar i-Pace really looks like that rare vehicle seen in that rare town, a long time ago… ;-) Yeah, there’s plenty of room at the back of this i-Pace ! Bonus - My version of the Audi
  20. Let me start with a disclaimer: this is my first ever review of a LEGO set. On the one hand, this means the review may be missing a few things you would expect from a review, most notably pictures, as I only decided to do a review after I had already built it. On the other hand, it should tell you right away that the set impressed me enough to warrant a review in the first place. Anyway, let's get right to it! PRICE According to Brickset, the RRP (recommended retail price) for a 75890 would be £12.99 / $14.99 / 14.99€. I live in Moscow, Russia, and I was able to pick it up for 1499₽ / ~$24 at an official LEGO certified store. Surprisingly, for about the same money I could get a 60256 Racing Cars or a 60242 Police Highway Arrest, though both have a noticible higher RRP on Birckset – £17.99 / $29.99 / 19.99€. You could also find a better deal, but in my case 2/3 of the price (1000₽ / ~$16) were covered by a gift card, which was a present from a friend for my birthday. PARTS The set contains 198 parts. They come in 5 bags – 3 larger unnumbered bags for the majority of the parts and 2 smaller bags each containing 2 sets of 4 wheel covers – 18978 and 29117, both in Flat Silver. As a matter of fact, I bought the F40 as a parts pack for my MOCs, and the wheel covers were what made it a must-buy – this is by far the cheapest way to get this many of them, let alone in one set. Just look at this: Other parts worth mentioning: a nice variety of brackets – 10 (6 black + 4 red) 99780 Inverted 1x2, 3 white 99781 1x2 and 2 black 99207 Inverted 2x2; 6 relatively uncommon red 33909 Modified 2 x 2 with Studs on Edge; 5 (4 + 1 spare) black 20482 Round 1 x 1 with Bar and Pin Holder; 3 (2 + 1 spare) red 1x1 plates with a Ferrari emblem printed on the side, which only appears in 2 sets – this one and the recent 76895 Ferrari F8 Tributo; 3 (2 + 1 spare) black 1x1 plates with a red edge, which is unique to this set. BUILD As I mentioned, the set was bought as a parts pack for my MOCs. My MOCs are mostly 6-wide sports cars, so I expected there to be some similarities. Nevertheless, I was really surprised with just how densely built this set was. With City sets you often have cavities left in them, but 75890 was very reminiscent of my own MOCs in terms of density. The highlights of the build are a couple of SNOT sections. The bracket pieces I mentioned earlier are used to a great effect on the front, sides and rear. Their main purpose is to create a thin black brick-built stripe going around the car, as seen on the real-life prototype: The stripe could easily be done with stickers, so it being brick-built instead is a nice touch. The part of this assembly that made me think "Oh, that's cool, I should remember that" was this: An upside-down 4070 allows to get an odd-length half-plate black strip, and the 1x1 red tile lines up perfectly with the 33909 Modified 2 x 2 with Studs on Edge pieces attached to the bottom. The unique black 1x1 plates with a red edge are used under the rear turn signals to have that black backdrop for the transparent pieces, but at the same time keep the red on the rear quarter panels consistent. Another thing I appreciated was the NPU exhaust pipe assembly. The real F40 has triple exhausts, which is recreated in the set using 2 20482 Round 1 x 1 with Bar and Pin Holder pieces with a 35480 1 x 2 Rounded Plate attached to them: From the picture above it is also quite obvious that the proportions of the LEGO rendition of the car are off – the car looks too narrow. The move to 8-wide in 2020, then, starts to seem natural. There was one part of the build, though, where I felt that the order of the steps could be switched. Personally, I would put step 38 after step 48, but its probably just me, so I wouldn't go into much detail. Anyway, the finished set looks very Ferrari-like with its bright red exterior, and the shape is quite accurate, in part due the relatively simple shape of the source material. The set includes a little play feature that allows you to switch between the F40 Competizione and a regular F40 looks. This is achieved by taking off some of the parts and replacing them with the alternatives also included in the set. The parts that are changed are: the headlights; the front cover, which is not actually attached to any studs, but is kept securely in place by the windshield; the front splitter; the rear diffuser; the rear wing the wheel covers. OVERALL THOUGHTS This was the first SC set that I actually built, and I was really impressed by it. The techniques used in the set are on par with what you can see in MOCs, so I would say that SC sets are to City vehicles what Modular Buildings are to City and Creator buildings – larger and better versions of the same thing with some advanced building techniques used throughout. Now that SC car are 8-wide, I am not sure the set would be worth buying if you have only just started collecting them and plan to get more in the future. Being 6-wide, it feels more like a toy and may end up looking a little out of place. However, if you are a) OK with the scale difference, b) willing/ready to modify the set yourself, or c) a Ferrari fan, don't hesitate and pick it up. I hope you liked the review, comments and critique are welcome as always. If you have any questions for a persons who just built this set, ask away.

    [MOC] Big Blocks Fine Autos

    This is my largest project to date! I've been working on it for over a year. It was conceived as a way to display my Speed Champions-scaled classic car MOCs all in one space. This is a used car dealership that plays heavily into American tropes and stereotypes of such establishments. The interior features a sales office and a garage, both dense with details. The garage features a functional lift. The back is open, and the roof easily detaches for access. Some of the finer details: car manufacturer emblems on the facade, the sign on the post, a mop bucket in the garage, and some assorted mini models found throughout the build. The coffee machine is based on my own Keurig, the motor is based on an Oldsmobile W-30 455 V8, and the Coke machine is actually stocked with a row of bottles inside, though you cannot see them without taking it apart. And finally, the cars on the lot! Starting with the front row, from left to right: 1972 Datsun 240z, street 1972 Datsun 240z, pace car 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 (John Wick's car) 1967 Shelby GT500 (Eleanor from Gone in 60 Seconds) 1970 Chevrolet Camaro RS/Z28 1967 Pontiac GTO Hoonicorn V1 (heavily modified 1965 Ford Mustang) 1969 Dodge Coronet Super Bee 1970 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler 1970 Chevrolet C10, short bed The back row, from left to right: 1970 Plymouth Hemi Cuda 1969 AMC Hurst/SC Rambler, with the "A" color scheme 1969 AMC Super Stock AMX 1970 Oldsmobile 442 W30 1968 Oldsmobile 442
