LEGO and Dodge’s Latest Collaboration Gives Our Mini Figs a Pair of Pony Cars to Play Around With
LEGO and Dodge are no strangers to one another. The two companies have partnered numerous times in the past, and it’s the strength of that partnership that opened the doors for the creation of a new, limited edition Speed Champions set featuring miniature versions of the 1970 Dodge Charger R/T and 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. The kit costs $39.95 and, in addition to the two muscle cars, it also comes with three mini figures — two drivers and a race marshal — and a Christmas tree. No, not a traditional Christmas tree, but the start-go, lights-based system that are used to start modern drag races. To commemorate the partnership — and the subsequent product — LEGO and Dodge also teamed up to create a commercial featuring none other than NHRA drag racing champion Leah Pritchett. This early in the year, the product planning is already on point.
Save Your Marriage and Get Your Husband This Lego Technic Porsche 911 RSR as a Late Christmas Present
Two years after Lego recreated the Porsche 911 GT3 RS in stunning fashion as part of thelarge-scale Technic collection, its race-going brother joins the fleet. Welcome to the 911 GT3 RSR by Lego Technic, with most of the aero insanity seen on the real thing recreated in model form.
Porsche’s 911 RSR is a menacing machine, one capable of taking on the world’s best in GT racing and beating them all with ease, as it did at last year’s edition of the Le Mans 24 Hours. Now, you can purchase a downsized version with a similar level of complexity, in keeping with the proportions, at a much-reduced premium and without having to contact a professional team of engineers to put it together.

McLaren Teases a Lego Champions Senna in London Toy Store: Video
Lego’s Speed Champions collection comprises some of the world’s most exotic machinery such as the Le Mans-winning Porsche 919, the Bugatti Chiron or the Ferrari LaFerrari. Now, a new hypercar is poised to join the lineup of the construction toy manufacturer’s collection. It’s McLaren’s ludicrous Senna, and it won’t be released until after Christmas, but McLaren already released the first teaser video.
You know how most manufacturers let some darkened images slip through the cracks showcasing whatever new model they plan on launching at an upcoming moment in time. McLaren has taken the idea to the world of Lego toys and dully made a fun video showing the soon-to-be-released McLaren Senna in Lego guise. It’s proving the point that, if you want, you can build hype for just about anything.
As of recently, camping in the back of a car has become a popular alternative to the traditional approach of tent camping. Why? Well, there’s no fumbling with a tent, which can be a hassle depending on how patient and resilient a person is.
There’s also a reduced risk of being surprised by strong winds or turned weather. Since campers are also encased in a large metal chassis, there is a better sense of safety against bugs or nosy, hungry animals.
It’s an attractive substitute on many levels. So, what if a curious camper is on a budget? To help get the ball rolling, I’ve comprised an Amazon Prime list of gear to get started under $200.
When camping, there are three major components that will make or break a great experience: Food, rest, and lighting.
