Lego Speed Champions
« on: May 12, 2020, 11:43:27 AM »
In looking for home projects to do with my daughter I found Lego Speed Champions.

I'm not a super gear-head but I like the model sets (and I'll confess to going to visit the Porsche museum in Stuttgart) and since they hover about $15-$20 the price is pretty good for an hour or two of distraction. I made the Ferrari F8 and it was a fun build and the darn thing looks like a Ferrari that 11 year old me would have had a poster on the wall.

Couple things to know going in... They seem to price the sets to market. That means American muscle cars carry a higher rate than Euro models. Also while there are several models available it does seem like a partnership between Lego and VW Group because VW owns the bulk of the models be it Porsche, Audi, or Lamborghini.

All that said, it was a very fun and creative build which I would recommend. For a reasonable price it gives an afternoon of fun.
