  1. 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?
  2. Will Speed Champions return for a fifth year?! What Cars will we get?! Let’s find out!!

    [MOC] Modular Ferrari Garage

    Hello, a few months ago I purchased the Ultimate Ferrari Garage set, mostly because of the cars. In fact, primarily for the F1 312 T4-ish, and secondly for the 250 GTO. I built the 'garage' part but didn't like it. So I set up to build an actual garage building, as a 32x32 modular. Full album is here: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmkb4o3j modular Ferrari garage by Federico, on Flickr I've researched a few actual garages in Italy that are official Ferrari repair shops or that cater to Ferrari clients. Lots of them have a paint pattern of red at the bottom, with a yellow stripe towards the top, and white above that. Fitting two Speed Champions size cars doesn't leave space for an actual office in the garage, so the interior is quite minimalistic: garage floor by Federico, on Flickr The main garage door slides to the right -- making the left part of the garage fully functional, and the right part more of a showroom space. caring for the T4 by Federico, on Flickr Upstairs there could be a small apartment for the owner and his family -- again, inspired by real garages around Europe. I've instead made the upstairs into a cozy sitting room adorned with trophies (from the original set), where Michael Schumacher and Gilles Villeneuve are both alive and well, and having a drink together. Gilles and Michael by Federico, on Flickr If things went differently, Gilles would be 68 and Michael is 49, and they would probably enjoy a celebratory drink at an official Ferrari event. The upstairs is small, half covered by simply the garage roof, as I wanted as much light as possible to fill the interior and to have the cars visible from all sides. As for the GTO, it is roaming the streets of my Lego town, and for now it doesn't need any visit to the garage ;) Ciao!
  4. Inspired by the Speed Champions cars. Last year I built a car showroom to show them off. Al's Autos is built on 3 large baseplates. On the left baseplate the blue and white sign has doubled sided brick plate writing and rotates on a Technic turntable. The showroom has a roller door entry behind the office on the left. It is fully tiled inside and lit with PF LEDs. On the right baseplate the brown turntable also rotates on a Technic turntable. The footpath is designed to match up to the Modular footpaths. My own creation cars are a Pick Up truck with removable Camper. A Ford GT40 reverse engineered from a LEGO YouTube movie. The black Pontiac is a KITT replica and has a working red LED scanner in the front. Next was a service centre / workshop for the showroom.The back section is a parts department. On the right are two service bays. The front one has a working Technic pneumatic hoist. Also PF LED lighting. The shipping containers can fit a Speed Champions car or spare parts. To keep the cars clean I next built a car wash. This has a working Technic based linear actuator to move the brushes back and forward over the car. So after a long day. It's off to the Drive In movies. The diner has a projection room, kitchen, counter, seating and toilet. My own creation cars are two NYPD police cars with working light bars. A yellow NY taxi. The two Porsche 911's are modified with brick headlights and door handles. The ambulance has working LED light bars, headlights and taillights One day I will get around to doing close up and interior photos.
  5. Discuss rumours regarding 2018 Speed Champions sets in this topic. No wish lists or "what I would like to see" please.
  6. 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: 1. 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. 2. 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. 3. 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. 4. 1970 Chevrolet Camaro RS/Z28. I am incredibly honored that this build was featured on The Brothers Brick. I had some custom chromed pieces made by Chrome Block City, which you can see in the third photo. My favorite parts of this build have to be the semi-fastback and the split bumper. 5. 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. 6. 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. Yeah, not so much of a "speed" car but 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. Mods: 1. 1966 Ford GT40 from 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 as only 1 was provided in just 1 Architecture set. Oh, and despite being dramatically lowered, it still fits a minifig! 2. 1974 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0 from 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. 3. 1971 Lamborghini Miura P400SV 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. 4. Ford Model A hot rod from 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. 5. 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 from 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.

    Speed Champions Ford Raptor MOD

    Hi Folks! A long-time lurker is back on the surface again. :) I was never satisfied with the proportions and the stickered headlights of the official LEGO model, so I made some modifications. I lowered the roof and the chassis and made some brick built lights. Here are some pictures, hope you like it:
  8. After three months of iterating upon its design in LDD, 111.34 Australian dollars and half an hour of building, my McLaren F1 is complete! The total number of parts is approximately individual 165 pieces (this includes wheels and tyres being counted as separate parts), and two of the main body pieces (leading up to the rear wheel arches) come from a 130 dollar LEGO set. There is not an angle that the McLaren F1 has that isn't iconic. From its rounded, short rear-end and taillights to its slim front nose, the car's entire design philosophy was based solely on how light its designers could get it to be - and even then, they weren't happy. What supercar is complete without some rich guy in his freshly-pressed (and very plasticy, in this case) suit and suitcase? It fits a minifigure! Barely. LDD likes to assume you can phase parts together, so while I was able to add a minifigure and let it sit comfortably in LDD, I'm forced to remove the minifigure's hair/hat/etc for it to fit in real life. To say it's a tight squeeze is an understatement. I saved the best for last, so, of course, what McLaren F1 would be complete without a "Longtail"?

    My LEGO City and Car MOCs

    Hey guys! CodyCorvetteZR1 here! I joined the Eurobricks because I want to make LEGO buildings and cars. I make MOC's because I want to experience building my own designs. I also make story models here to make short stories in here.
  10. Hi, This is my first (real) Speed Champions MOC : the 2016 Nissan GT-R Nismo. I've presented these for the first time at the 2018 Brick en Bulles Reims expo in France, last weekend. This is a car i am very fond of, and in my opinion has been missing from the Speed Champions lineup. I've used techniques to try and get the right shape and minimize "accidents". For instance, the two slopes on the back of the cockpit are offseted by half a plate to avoid the "staircase" effect. I'll probably make instructions. There aren't many rare parts. One last family picture, can you spot the intruders ? The full article on my blog: http://bj51creations.blogspot.fr/2018/03/moc-nissan-gt-r.html Thanks for reading!
  11. Hello all together, I would like to present you my entry for the 14th Eurobricks Event Contest. The goal was to build a car in Speed Champions style. I did choose the Aston Martin DB5 007 Edition. I thought a regular car could be rather boring so I put in some action features that the car in the movies also has. I also made a VIDEO to show all the features. Enjoy: I hope you liked what you saw.

    MOC: Speed Champions Robin Reliant

    May I present to you my entry for the EB Event 2018 Speed Champions contest: The Robin Reliant Mk 1-- As with past events we were challenged to create a MOC and bring it along for everyone to judge. As a fun addition, the vote was added to the forum too, so members elsewhere could vote along with those of us in Billund. Wondering what to build, I had been discussing the contest with my sister as I drove us to town. As she made suggestions and I considered MOC methods, we reached a crossroads. There, bumbling towards us (and quite gentlemanly-ly allowing us to take the turn first) was a nice old Robin Reliant. "You don't see many of those on the road now, do you?" I said as we carried on down the road. "No, not really. Which is a shame, they are quite cute and funny." My sister replied. After a beat of silence; "You should build one for the car contest!" And thus it was decided. I was building a Robin Reliant. I chose the Mark 1 as it has quite the iconic look to it, the rounded grill and headlights looking especially nice. Then some certain friends of mine suggested I use the light bright orange shade to build. A further challenge I accepted! After a little research and parts checking, I got to building and with some refinements the above is the result. The 75909 McLaren P1 donated most of the parts to this build, the Jungle Explorers and some Chima supplied the rest. Below is a front view and the fact sheet I created to go with the car at the event. Comment, question and critique!

    Speed Champions inspired F1 cars

    I've been making some additional 2016 season F1 cars to sit alongside the Ferrari F1 Speed Champions set (75879), first up is one of my favourite teams (despite their poor form in partnership with Honda), McLaren. This is my interpretation of their 2016 MP4-31 #14 driven by Fernando Alonso. The build was straightforward as it follows the standard Speed Champions F1 car build closely with just a couple of tweaks to nose and wing. The stickers were the biggest challenge as it's not possible to put all the logos in exactly the right place and scale. I didn't want any stickers to span more than one brick which limited things still further but I'm happy with the end result. Let me know what you think!

    Speed Champions Alternates

    Speed Champions Alternates 2018: Speed Champions Alternates 2017: Speed Champions Alternates 2016: Speed Champions Alternates 2015: Hi all, I'll put all the SC stuff into this thread, otherwise things might get a bit confusing. As already said the Speed Champions are quite inspiring for City car builders - mainly because of the new parts coming with them. Here you can see a comparison between the already presented 7w+ Ferrari LeMans, the McLaren P1 from the set and a new MOC, a Ferrari 458 in 6w+, maybe more suitable for City builders having smaller vehicles in their layouts. More pics: Main point here was to keep the car as low as possible - it's much lower than the cars from the sets. The Ferrari fits one whole minifig driver with helmet but is considerably lower than a standing fig. Wheels are customized in order to use those nice new Speed Champions hubcaps (as already shown on the Ferrari 308 GTS): Of course there will be a racing version with Speed Champions stickers, too. Thanks for looking, more to come.

    Lotus 79 ish f1 MOC

    I saw this while I was looking at Vintage F1 cars to try to make. Lego Ideas Lotus 79 by Kozy . I did a model of this in Stud.io picture below. Took me ages to figure out how the front was fixed on. I like the model but I had a go at my own loosely based on his model design. Mine is 1 brick shorter and I got the side pods and rear wing 1 plate lower, which I like more as it fits better with my other vintage F1 models. I was surprised that when I finally finished my Stud.io model that I has all the bits to make it. Although not in the right colour yet. Google search for this car type. The 24307 Part the 1st plate on the side pod. As I have seen the 2018 Speed champions sets. I was thinking that the new triangle tile like on the ford fiesta rally car might be better. But they may not make it in black and I don't know it's ID number. 1st pic is the Stud.io render of the model by Kozy. 2nd n 3rd my real life as is and the finished Stud.io render. Dave
