So this is my first time writing a LEGO review so you’ll have to bare with me. For this review I’ve focused on the LEGO Ferrari 488 GT3 “Scuderia Corsa” 75886. Like I said in my previous post, this is the first time I’ve gotten into the LEGO Speed Champions range. And I can safely say this won’t be my last (well, I already acquired 4 of the early 2018 range).
LEGO has announced that it will be launching it’s first round of sustainable bricks in 2018. Appropriately, the first LEGO Sustainable Bricks to go under the Environmental umbrella will be some of the Botanical elements.
These new bricks are made out of the same material that goes into the green fuels for cars, Ethanol. Based on sugarcane, the new bricks are known as a plant-based plastic.
Went to one of the local Kmart’s today to collect the first of the new Lego Speed Champions 2018 sets for review. Been really looking forward to them since they were announced back in January, especially the Ford Fiesta – always enjoyed the WRC races – but the Mustang is cool! Also, these are the first Speed Champions sets I’ve purchased. Always been tempted, but never took the plunge till now.
First impressions were really good! The packaging is to Lego’s usual high standard and the boxes had a good weight to them. I don’t know about you, but personally I always find that quite reassuring, especially being a plastic toy.
So I’m an adult LEGO Fan (AFOL if you will) called Greg who’s decided that besides my family, this is something that I’m super passionate about. To me, LEGO is one of the best toys ever created because it is just so creative and limitless in possibilities. Looking around the internet at what people like Jang Bricks and The Brothers Brick have been doing has inspired me to start on this personal journey of creativity.
With the GJ Bricks blog I’m creating an outlet for my love of the Brick. And, do something I’ve always wanted to do, which is go more into the models and community to talk about the beauty of it. I’ll be posting news, videos, reviews and sharing some of the most inspiring LEGO Builds from around the internet.
