The Speed Champions theme was introduced in 2015 and since then we've seen over 40 sets featuring cars from a wide range of marques and racing series.

Next year's sets are a departure from earlier ones in that they are eight studs wide instead of six. It's about time: in my review from February 2015 of one of the first, 75909 McLaren P1, I stated that "[if you] look at [the model] from the front and top and the design flaws become very apparent: it's far too narrow!

"The dimensions of the real car are 4.5m long by 2.1m wide. The LEGO one is 18 studs long which equates to 1 stud=25 cm. The scale width should thus be 8.4 studs and it's plain to see that if it has been made 8 studs wide it would have looked so much better and there would have been room inside for two seats"

71026 DC Super Heroes Collectable Minifigures includes an outstanding selection of brand new characters alongside exclusive renditions of the most renowned heroes and villains from across this brilliant comic series. The first part of our review discussed eight such figures.

Section two accordingly encompasses the eight remaining characters. These include Huntress, Jay Garrick's Flash, Bat-Mite and the original Batman based upon his 1939 design, along with my concluding opinion of this whole series.
