This has been floating around for quite some time already, but I suppose such news is definitely noteworthy considering the excitement surrounding most of them. In various, separate occasions during the past days, LEGO has announced several sets slated for release between the months of January and December. I’ve compiled them here for one quick look and some bits of info to put them in perspective.
LEGO Speed Champions 2017 sets
LEGO and Ford entered into another partnership in their latest collaboration under the Speed Champions theme. Ford became an icon in the racing circuit when it won the Le Mans 24 Hours in 1966, and bagging the title once more for this year. In honor of Ford’s achievements for the past 50 years, LEGO has announced several new Speed Champions sets including the 2016 Ford GT & 1966 Ford GT40 (75881) which will be available in March next year.
Here’s what LEGO Speed Champions Design Manager Craig Callum has to say.
