Speed Champions 2016

39 posts in this topic

Before the list of sets was taken down from the Amazon site, I did notice a full selection of more vehicles (around six or so) for this Toys R Us exclusive theme. A couple of which are supposed to be a Mustang and then somewhere is a Camaro. I should have realized what had happened was going to happen and make a copy for later reference but no use crying over spilled milk. Well if they are to continue the racing form tradition in the prior wave with this one, I imagine all will be based on modern models.

Never mind, I just found a copy of the list. Here are the Speed Champions for 2016 everybody!

  • 75870 - Chevrolet Corvette Z06 = 14.99 €
  • 75871 - Ford Mustang GT = 14.99 €
  • 75872 - Audi R18 E-Tron Quattro = 14.99 €
  • 75874 - Chevrolet Camaro = 34.99 €
  • 75875 - Ford F-150 Raptor = 49.99 €

I will be buying the Ford Mustang GT the first day it's available, and hopefully MOC'ing a couple of different color versions too.  I'll probably pull the trigger on the F-150 too, depending on how good it looks.

Great news.  Now, retire the 1st issue sets early, and keep 'em coming.  3-4x on the initial release cars 6 months from retirement.  It doesn't hurt that TRU is continually out of stock on these, its obvious demand has been good for this series.

Pics now available. Stands outs for me are the Mustang and the Le Mans set with Porsche 917. The other ones don´t seem to be very good representations at all.

When are these due out?

I honestly don't know of a specific release date. I imagine similar to how the present year's were made available.

I haven't tried buying any, but I see the new Speed Champions sets on TRU.com. I was able to put in my cart and they say, " IN STOCK Leaves warehouse in 1 - 2 full business days."

The Mustang GT isn't bad, but they mistakenly used a real-life picture of the V-6 model on the box. They obviously need more car guys at LEGO!  Can we please get a GT350R set?

The Model-A looks well done, but that Ford truck is oh-so-ugly. I know the source material isn't great, but that's a pretty poor looking build... like Hoth Poor.

I agree..... I will be putting some larger tires on it !  Larger tires will make this model look a lot better !!!

The proportions are all wrong... The hood is too long, the body sits too high, the wheels and wheel wells are too small.

Plus that sticker on the front looks hideous. All the stickers suck... They missed the most needed one "Raptor" over the rear fenders. And where is the sunroof? And side mirrors? Yuck!

I saw all of the new Speed Champions sets at TRU today.  And they don't have the customary TRU markup (yet!).  Did not get any though.  I didn't love any of them.  The hot rod is cool, but I really don't like the truck.  The Mustang is ok, and if I get any of these for myself, that might be the one.  I think the first wave was better.

If it wasn't for stickers and colors (Ferrari-red) non of these cars would be recognizable, they are so ugly. Maybe......maybe you could tell which one is Porsche...maybe. Hot rod is cool, old camaro too, but the new cars....ugly isn't describing it for me, they just suck!
