LEGO Speed Champions supercars in 2015

by admin on October 5, 2014

in Other LEGO Themes

There has been rumors of a new LEGO racing theme with supercars coming in 2015, but there was very little known about this new line besides the set names we have discussed previously (see: 2015 LEGO Sets News & Rumors…) A few days ago it was revealed that the theme is going to be called LEGO Speed Champions and pictures of the sets have been revealed on YouTube. So let’s take a look! 🙂

LEGO Speed Champions Pictures

There are seven sets in the new LEGO Speed Champions line, and I have to say they look really excellent. There has been small LEGO race cars released before, however they were usually smaller than minifigure scale. The #60053 LEGO City Race Car that we got earlier this year is minifig scale, and it turned out to be popular with LEGO fans who took up the task of building different color versions of it. There was obviously a demand for minifigure scale race cars, and LEGO didn’t disappoint. Below is the list of upcoming LEGO Speed Champions sets with pictures.

#75899 LEGO Speed Champions Ferrari F150 – note that wonderful new windscreen, and also new fenders. The graphics on all of the cars appear to be stickers – sadly. One concern I have is that in the past in all LEGO sets with the Ferrari logo the minifigs also had stickers on their torsos (if the torso design included the logo). My understanding is that this has to do with LEGO’s policy that they use stickers for all logos that belong to another brand (i.e. Ferrari, Maersk, etc.). I really-really hope that this is not the case with these sets.

#75899 LEGO Speed Champions

#75908 LEGO Speed Champions 458 Italia GT2 – this is my favorite race car in this line. Stickers or not, I absolutely love it and plan to get it as soon as it gets released. Beautiful curves, wonderful design. In fact all of these race cars have a really pleasing look.

#75909 LEGO Speed Champions McLaren P1 – this is another beauty. Note the snowboard in yellow used for the back fin – it looks perfect.

#75909 LEGO Speed Champions

#75910 LEGO Speed Champions Porsche 918 Spyder – another wonderful supercar in muted colors. This will actually look great in LEGO City sets as well for your more affluent minifigs. 😀

#75910 LEGO Speed Champions

#75911 LEGO Speed Champions McLaren Mercedes Pit-Stop – here we get a different kind of race car and a whole pit-stop, with lost of tools extra wheels and more for your minifigs to do a quick fix during the race.

#75911 LEGO Speed Champions

#75912 LEGO Speed Champions Porsche 911 GT Finishing-Line – this is my other most favorite set in the line that I’m definitely planning to get. The two race-cars are super sweet, and there are a good bit of extras too, including those flags – which, I assume, are printed.

#75912 LEGO Speed Champions

#75913 LEGO Ferrari F14 & Scuderia Ferrari Truck – this is the largest set in the line, and it is quite similar to previous LEGO Ferrari race-car haulers. Lots of accessories and play features! As I said before; I just hope that the minifig torsos are not stickered this time. Also note the included red scooter!

#75913 LEGO Speed Champions

LEGO cars are very popular with both kids and adults and have been a staple theme at LEGO. Rolling around small vehicles, racing them down a halfway or over obstacles is just a lot of fun. These supercars have a really nice shape and it is a plus that they are minifigure size. If you are planning to get any of these, make sure you get some extra sticker-sheets before they become hard to find. This is the only downside I can see with these sets. And while we are waiting for these to get released you can see the current selection of LEGO cars at the Online LEGO Shop.

Don’t know if it’s a cost issue, but several of these cars, particularly the Spyder looks too studdish. It might possibly be improved with extra tiles, but I don’t know why they aren’t included in the original model.

I have noted that as well. I thought that the Spyder almost looks like an armored vehicle. It’s interesting.

Nice analysis! If anyone would like to read, I wrote an analysis similar to this one but that compares the models to the actual cars and how well they resemble what they’re based on. Hope you like it! 🙂

Yeah. I had actually read it earlier. Pretty good analysis.

Thanks, George! That’s really interesting! Love the comparison pictures! 🙂

That first one looks EXTREMELY stickerized! Though it looks like a sweet ride for my village! 😀 I might get at least one, plus I know that one of my friends will scream when they hear about this.

It seems like the windscreen may actually be printed on the the first one, but I’m not sure. Also, check out George’s article, comparing these models with the real vehicles.

These all look so cool! 😀 I plan to get the McLaren and the Porsche Spyder, assuming I can spare the money. 😕 I must say the cars wouldn’t look as great if they weren’t 70% stickers, so the stickers are a necessary evil. I doubt the minifigs are stickered, but also wouldn’t be surprised if they were. As far as I can tell, the first car has only 6-7 stickers, the second has infinite 😀 , the third has 13-14, the Spyder has 14-15 (including flag), and the rest I won’t count. 😉 Also, there’s at least 5 new pieces on the cars, not including the wheels. OK, that’s my overall review of them. 😉

These would be excellent sets for kids and collectors if there weren’t so many stickers!

One of my favorites, although it is slightly a different scale is the 60025 Grand Prix Truck. I know it is a different set number, but for me, it fits right in with these racecars. I think about it like this, you have F1, Indy, Nascar, IMSA, all these different kinds of racing. Why not have the same kind of thing in LEGO?

These look nice, I will pick up that F150, it is quite accurate in my opinion.

Cool cars…

I want the big sets with the terrain pieces that come with the cars, but that will never happen for me. Knowing my luck anyways. I kinda like the silver one.

In reference to the American flag in model #75912 the union, blue part with stars, is on the wrong side. It is supposed to be on the flags own right and the observers left.

Eugene, interesting notice. I guess it just depends on where they consider the audience to be. The German flag is also “upside down” from this angle. 😉

From military experience, the flag is positioned correctly. It does not matter which direction the stars are facing. the input of this is how real racing does it where all the flags of the top three finishers point south. Left to Right, to North to South. How the military always does it.

Wow, look at a Porsche 911 was wonderful, look like a real-life racing teams.
