We're all done with our reviews of the first wave of 2020 Speed Champions releases. The six new models we've seen from five manufacturers, three of which are new to the brand mark the introduction of the new 8 wide format for models and we've been excited to get our hands on them.
Officially revealed today, our first official and detailed look at 2020's flagship LEGO Technic vehicle, the nearly 4,000 piece Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 set. In this stunning Lime Green/Gold Wheels colour matching the launch vehicle for the Sián this is probably LEGO's biggest release of the year. We've got all the details, from the internal mechanisms to most importantly, the price.
We'd reviewed the first Speed Champions polybag set, the Lamborghini Huracan, back in December but since then it's not been clear quite where LEGO were going to make it available (short of some sightings in toy retailers). In the UK at least, it seems LEGO have teamed up with Top Gear Magazine and a UK supermarket to make it available - find out how to get hold of it this month.
With only a few weeks to go before the release of the new (and as yet, unrevealed) Lamborghini ultimate creator series set on June 1, LEGO have posted a teaser trailer. With a few more details visible in the video we can confirm that, as we speculated back in January, we're looking at the set being of the Lamborghini Sian.
As announced/hinted at back in January, there's a new motorcycle addition to the Technic range from Ducati's V4 R Panigale. This bright red superbike is hitting the shelves in August and we've got the full set of pictures and details with it's release for pre-order.
With a large chunk of the world stuck indoors, we've got something cheery to share today as LEGO have released one of the promised 1H2020 sets - the Fast and Furious Dom's Charger model that we'd been expecting post the announcment of the licence in January. It's not the first time we've seen a 70s Charger R/T in LEGO form but this one promises a more substantial build.
Almost out of nowhere almost LEGO have dropped a new Creator Expert series vehicle - the Fiat 500. This iconic italian supermini joins the ranks of the Volkswagen Beetle, MINI Cooper and Ferrari F40 in the Creator Expert Vehicles series and is available from tomorrow. If you've run out of things to build following January's wave of sets, look no futher.
After initially leaking in some game files all the way back at the start of December, the latest patch notes for Forza Horizon 4 let us know the Bugatti Chiron has been added to the LEGO Speed Champions expansion for the game.
With Spielwarenmesse in swing yesterday in Germany, we saw the announcement of the next Ultimate Creator Series car after the Bugatti Chiron and Porsche GT3 RS - a Lamborghini. LEGO are still keeping the exact model under wraps with this blacked out teaser shot - let's find out what we know and what's to come on this exciting new model for Summer 2020.
After rumours circling in October last year, we've had an official announcment of the partnership between LEGO Technic and the Fast and the Furious movie franchise which is going to produce Technic set 42111, released in April 2020.
