#10248 Ferrari F40will be a creator set !!
I think its a safe bet it will be a Speed Champions set.
LEGO Creator sets are for classic and iconic things such as the Volkswagen or Tower Bridge. I would say the Ferrari F40 will not be a LEGO Creator set and would instead be a part of the LEGO Speed Champions it's in the name "Speed!"
Is it going to be the Maersk 2, 150 stickers. Seems to be the main feature of the Speed Champions line.
Really, the Creator Expert line is just an umbrella for big exclusive sets that previously would not have been labeled with themes at all. This includes all kinds of subject matter, from minifigure-scale playsets to large-scale vehicles to small-scale world landmarks. But usually, when there DOES exist a theme that the set would fit under, it is released as a part of that theme instead of Creator Expert. A good example is the Haunted House (which was released as a Monster Fighters set).
If the Speed Champions theme did not exist, it would not be a surprise for the Ferrari F40 to be released as a Creator Expert set. But since there IS such a theme, #10248 will probably be released with Speed Champions branding.
It won't be any worse than the VW or MINI. At a larger scale, a lot of details can be brick-built that would otherwise be stickers or prints, plus it won't be plastered with the sponsor logos that account for a lot of the Speed Champions sets' stickers.
I'm looking forward to seeing this set and hopefully buying it. I love the mixer so hopefully it will complement my fair ground!
If you hadn't said World Wars in your comment I might have thought it was a different one.
Tivoli was the inspiration for Disneyland. It's been open for 172 years this coming August. The 170th birthday was celebrated in 2013, so in terms of a design to market timeframe, that would be fitting as an obvious choice?
I remember the employee saying that you'll be able to add power functions as well.
Some Ferris wheel facts on that page too, so I learned something new.
Looking forward to the reveal in any case. I mean, it's going to be a Ferris Wheel right, it's not like Jamie's video is going to say "Surprise! It's Dodgems! (Bumper cars)" ;)
Please let it be today! :)
Unless they got really sneaky and sent out a fake calendar draft to every store just to cover their tracks, then yes, it's a Ferris wheel.
I'm actually looking forward to this as a continued theme line along the lines of the modular buildings
I think it would be fun to have a large, multi-part carnival
I have been on that Ferris Wheel at the Tivoli Gardens, but I would prefer a more traditional model, preferably with eight spokes and gondolas or even more than that!
To stick with a 149.99 likely price point there will be certain sacrifices made. I think the gondolas will be minifig scale which will take away from the overall "size".
Now THAT was unexpected!
Finally we have a true Ferris Wheel!
It is not doing it for me at first glance, and I am not sure why.
I wanted to love both the mixer and the Ferris wheel. I love the number of characters they come with and the theme. It is possible that the blue legs on the Ferris wheel are initially throwing me off. Hopefully there is a designer video on this one. Of course, the advantage if I do not change my mind is that it is one more big set I will not need. :-) This could also be one of those sets I adjust to and then really want. I will wait for more info.
looking forward to the Ferris Wheel, it looks a good set.
