    Hi-res images up on the mainpage. So many cool details and building techniques! It looks like black meat cleavers in the front of the classic Mini for part of the wheel wells?!

    Just spotted the printed Ferrari badges on the F40.  Nice to see even as sticker-heavy a range as SC doesn't expect you to put one on the edge of a 1x1 plate.

    Looks like they did something similar on the #75890 Camaro with “Chevrolet” behind the rear fenders. Or is that a really skinny sticker?

    ^Certainly looks that way to me.

    ....we've already seen photos of the finished Senna , quite fancy a street camo version though!

    If you look at 75893, there appears to be two extra wheels right above the two extra 5 spokes next to the Challenger Demon. I dunno if those are new, but it seems to be a reference to the $1 Demon crate, which contains very thin wheels for the drag focused Challenger Demon.

    The Charger also has the option of a stock hood if you don’t want the blown engine look, and it has its own sets of rims. The torso the Charger’s minifigure driver is actually very good, as you can use it as a any regular torso because it can pass as the minifigure being a big Dodge/Mopar fan.

    Those look like they're inserts to make the regular tires into drag slicks. Look at the back of The Demon, and on the Camaro.

    I'm going to need a couple of the Dodge torso just for the reason you said.

    It's good to se them incorporating actual rear windows in their designs more instead of relying on stickers. I've been modifying my sets with the method used on the Ford GT40 or a 4217722.

    Heads up: LEGO has the five sets listed on their online store. Release date is the 1st, but they might show up early in certain stores due to the holiday season.

    I wrote this up a few weeks ago but guess didn't hit post...
    Mynatt said:
    ...As for Mini, I would love to see them possibly follow the rally image from the WRC Ford Fiesta last year. I would especially look forward to a Mini Countryman....


    Well, I am extremely pleased with the outcome. Here I was expecting only one mini but ended up with two! I am a bit surprised that the red Dakar mini (in green) was the final choice instead of the rally Countryman as I would have figured the Countryman Mini would have been much more recognizable instead of the,

     "Paperballpark said:
    Very weird Mini Buggy thing in the Mini set though.



    That aside, I’m so glad the real star of the set is the classic mini. Especially glad that they chose the one that raced in Monte Carlo. This past September I was even able to photograph replicas of this Mini at a classic car show.





    The classic Mini Cooper has been the dream car of mine for many years now. Well, if I can't quite get a real one, I am more than fine with settling with the Creator Expert Mini and now this Speed Champions Mini.

    Look forward to making many of these in different colors and to have the newer pieces become more available in the future. Would love to have a series of Italian Job Mini Coopers.

    I like the old Mini, not so keen on the Dakar version so I might have to BL it

    I figured this would be appropriate to leave here: 



    I’ll be getting the Mini set and the Camaro eventually.

    So do I. Was working on my SC backlog this week, built the FXX test set and now half of the Ferrari Ultimate garage. Will need a few of those F40s and one of all the others... juuust a little more discount on Amazon first :-D

    Very happy to finally get a SC-scale F40!

    While I am not 100% sure on this, I think the female driver of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon in #75893 may be based on NHRA Factory Stock Showdown Champion and Top Fuel race winner Leah Pritchett.

    Yesterday I built the Ferrari F-40 and Chevy Camaro. Great, fun builds. I really like the stock car wheels on the Camaro.

    Went to Toy Planet, Wantage yesterday and found some used sets he'd just got in, that I didn't have, and/or had only one of but were still boxed. Picked up:

    #75193 Ferrari Garage/truck
    #75876 Porsche Pit Lane
    #75875 Hot Rod
    #75912 Porsche Finish Line
    #75874 Chevy Drag

    All have no boxes or instructions, and a few stickers not applied brilliantly, but hey. Out of curiosity, what value would you put on the above, used and no boxes?

    Was pleased, as I went in to sell a Pop Box Set that I didn't really have a need for (collecting Lego is enough lol) and we did what I feel was a great trade, especially as my Pop set looks like it had increased in value, and they have a number of collectors who use them for rarer Pop items.

    Still need to get the new SC sets, but will await a drop in price as wat them all, but am concerned at the big mini, lol

    Thank you LEGO for making my dream car. One simple change to the front,  and you can change the 70 Charger to a 69. Can't wait to make a whole bunch of 68 to 70s.

    you need to adjust the size of his flares as the car goes through the years too! :)

    It’s possible. LEGO seems to base the driver minifigures off of real drivers, hence the 488 GT3’s driver.

    Anyway, while I haven’t built the stand/gate build of the Mini set yet....



    This is a good variety for only five sets

    There aren't many cars in this release that I won't get.

    I picked up the F40 just yesterday.  Fun little build!

    The Mini packs are definitely on my list.

    And I'll probably end up getting 2 of the Charger/Challenger sets.  I need some nice black fenders to rework my classic Camaro.  (Among other pieces.)

    McLaren posted a video on their youtube channel that has a few shots of the sketch models of the Senna.

    I’m still wondering if a second wave for 2019 is coming. I absolutely love the fact the release date for thid wave was much earlier than it does previous waves, but doesn’t it seem a bit peculiar as well? It’s cool, but also seemingly strange to do if you’re only planning one wave for 2019. It’s circumstantial at best, but an earlier release alongside every other theme that will get a second wave of sets in the summer may indicate that we aren’t done with 2019 Speed Champions quite yet.

    Regardless, I do think the theme will continue. They’ve put too much into this for it to be axed.

    I really hope they do...and I really really hope they don't.
