Shift Happens: Building a McLaren 720S …LEGO car

Jeff Glucker August 4, 2017 Hoonivercinema, Shift Happens 4 Comments

Awhile back, the good folks at McLaren sent me a LEGO kit. It’s part of the LEGO Speed Champions series, and this one features the new McLaren 720S. It also has a designer. He’s got his drafting table, a model car, a cup of coffee, and a lamp. He’s also got a helmet, because he can jump from being the designer to being the driver.

The kit is a fun toy to have on my desk, and it was pretty easy to put together. There are a few single block pieces that are a little small, and the stickers can be tricky if you don’t take your time… especially with oafish hands like mine. But it really was a relatively quick and easy job piecing this one together.

Now I want to find more Speed Champion sets to join this one…

[Disclaimer: McLaren sent me this kit out of the blue. I think they retail in the $20 range.]
