A few weeks ago, LEGO revealed the new LEGO Speed Champions McLaren 720s (75880) and there are now official images of the set. There are some slight differences between these images and the ones from before. The McLaren 720s itself seems to be the same however the designer minifigure’s hair is different.
LEGO design manager Craig Callum did an interview with Top Gear and he gave some details about the set as well as the LEGO Speed Champions theme.
The McLaren 720S (75880) will be available later this year for probably $14.99, similar to the other single vehicle sets.

LEGO news has been really quiet the past few weeks or so but here’s something about the Series 18 LEGO Collectible Minifigures that may interest you. A user on Eurobricks has stated that Series 18 could be another themed-based set with it being a “Costume Party.”
We’ve gotten a plethora of costumed LEGO minifigures in the past which have proven to be very popular with collectors like the Banana Guy, Shark Suit Guy, and Hot Dog Man, just to name a few. If the rumor is true, hopefully we see some designs that aren’t based off of previous minifigure costumes.
What do you guys think of the Series 18 LEGO Collectible Minifigures being all costume based? Let us know in the comments below.
