They teased it yesterday on their Facebook page, but today Lego have given us a PR blitz with information about the Porsche 911 model that’s coming out in the UK on June 1st for £249.
This is a really lovely set, with a huge amount of detail throughout. Which is just as well, considering the high price. They’ve certainly done an excellent job in capturing the curves of the actual car, and it looks quite striking in the orange colouring.
The high price certainly seems to have gone into the packaging and general experience of opening it up and building it, but it would have been nice if some of that money had gone into something like adding real working lights, or perhaps even remote control functions. As an AFOL who buys a fair number of sets simply for their display value, I should hardly complain, but when the price is that high it would be nice to have something fun in there for Noah in there too.
