The LEGO Speed Champions Ferrari 488 GT3 “Scuderia Corsa” (#75886 ) set is a wonderful vehicle/minifigure set.  While not saying the female racer is two-time champ, Christina Nielsen (who raced for Scuderia Corsa), I give LEGO a thumbs up for releasing a set with a female racer for the Ferrari 488 GT3.  But also the engineers who were involved in the making of this car.  I was impressed!    Highly recommended!


LEGO SET: LEGO Speed Champions Ferrari 488 GT3 “Scuderia Corsa”

ITEM #: 75886

PIECES: 179

PRICE: $14.99

AGES: 7-14


THE REVIEW:

Back in 2015, LEGO formed a partnership with three automobile manufacturers: Ferarri, McLaren and Porsche to create popular vehicles made out of LEGO’s.

The line would be known as LEGO Speed Champions and so popular the line, in 2016, they would add a partnership with Chevrolet, Ford and Audi.

In 2016, we saw the release of LEGO vehicles and sets featuring Ford, Ferrari and Porsche.

And with the Ferrari, there was the Ferrari LaFerrari and the Ferrari 458 GT2 plus a Ferrari F14 & Scuderia Ferrari Truck set in 2015.

Here we are in 2018 and this time we have the LEGO Speed Champions Ferrari 488 GT3 Scuderia Corsa.

Scuderia Corsa is an American automotive racing team which competes in the IMSA SportsCar Championship, Pirelli World Challenge and Ferrari Challenge in North America.

And this time we have a female race car driver, no doubt possibly paying an homage to Christina Nielsen, the first woman to win a major full-season professional sports car championship in North America who raced with Scuderia Corsa and rode the Ferrari 488 GT3 with back-t0-back championships in 2016-2017 (she has since moved on to Wright Motorsports in 2018 and driving the Porsche 911 GT3 R).

Let’s first take a look at the minifigure:

The female racer has the Scuderia Corsa outfit with the Siefert logo on the shoulders, a faux Continental-like logo and the black patch that the Scuderia Corsa racers wear.  While the actual logo is smaller on the upper right of their chest, I liked the fact that LEGO made it big going through the waist.  It works much better that way and is more legible.

There is also printing on the rear of the clothing with the logo across the top back area and the white/blue pocket area extending in the back as well.

The female racer also comes with a helmet and visor (x2) and also her blonde hair.  While the head is a single printing.

She also comes with a trophy and a wrench.

Here is the actual Ferrari GT3 488 when Christina Nielsen was still part of the team:

The video is from 2016 but it goes to show how the car looks like and I have to say that while different, as one can expect for LEGO, especially when it comes to decals, this vehicle is probably the most fun I have had building a LEGO vehicle.

I have built many vehicles but there were a lot of research done to find the right bricks to make the Ferrari 488 GT3 really standout and look appealing to the consumer.  It utilizes many different style of bricks and is 179 pieces.

And typically, I like to speed time myself in creating a vehicle but for this one, I was amazed of the bricks used that each time I put one part together and wondered, what is their plan for this?  And you realize that once you add it to the actual car, the way it was designed makes perfect sense.

An attractive car and fun to build!

Good-sized compartment for the minifigure and the canopy easily snaps in and also is easy to remove.

And while I’m a person who tends to have a disdain of using LEGO stickers, these stickers definitely make the car look so cool.  Just know that the most difficult of the stickers will be the one on the window canopy.

Overall, the LEGO Speed Champions Ferrari 488 GT3 “Scuderia Corsa” (#75886 ) set is a wonderful vehicle/minifigure set.  While not saying the female racer is two-time champ, Christina Nielsen (who raced for Scuderia Corsa), I give LEGO a thumbs up for releasing a set with a female racer for the Ferrari 488 GT3.  But also the engineers who were involved in the making of this car.  I was impressed!

LEGO Speed Champions Ferrari 488 GT3 “Scuderia Corsa” (#75886 )” is highly recommended!

RATING: ***** (5 stars out of 5)

 Taking place between the events of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, these new adventures follow a family of scavengers who build and sell starships from battle debris strewn throughout the galaxy. When their youngest discovers a natural connection with the Force through an ancient artifact – the Kyber Saber –he and his family are thrown into an epic struggle against the Empire to restore peace and freedom to the galaxy. The Freemakers explore new worlds, meet new and familiar characters and discover the strength of family. Relive all 13 action-packed episodes in LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures Season One.


In June 2016, Disney XD unveiled the latest LEGO Star Wars animation titled “LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures”.

A 13-episode series that was created by Bill Motz (“Swindle”, “The Penguins of Madagascar”, “Rufus”) and Bob Roth (“The Lion King 2: Simba’s Pride”, “Mickey’s Twince Upon a Christmas”, “Aladdin: The Return of Jafar”).

And now the first season will be available on Blu-ray courtesy of Disney.

Taking place between “The Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi”, the series revolves around the Freemaker family which include Kordi, Zander and their younger brother Rowan along with their droid Roger.

The four work in the salvage business and try to salvage parts from destroyed or damaged ships.

But when the two get caught in a battle between the Galactic Empire and the Rebel Alliance, young Rowan discovers an ancient artifact known as the Kyber Saber.

He is immediately found by Naare, a mysterious force-wielder who recognizes that Rowan has a connection to the Force and has the ability to find the artifacts needed to create the Kyber Saber (which was separated into pieces to keep it away from evil hands).  Which both Darth Vader and Darth Sidious are trying to find.

As the Freemakers team up with Naare, thinking she’s a good jedi, the truth is that she is a sith sent by the Emperor to use Rowan to find the artifacts needed to put the Kyber Saber together.  And giving Rowan an idea that he has the potential to become a jedi.

And as the Freemakers travel throughout the galaxy to find the artifacts, they run into a few familiar faces such as Lando, Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa and more.


VIDEO:

“LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures – Complete Season One” is presented in 1080p High Definition (1:78:1 aspect ratio).   The animation is fantastic and the detail for the space craft and characters are well-done.  The animation is colorful and detailed for a LEGO Star Wars series and there is no doubt improvement seen in the animation of the characters, especially when comparing to past LEGO Star Wars animated series.

I did not notice any artifacts or banding issues during my viewing of each episode.

AUDIO & SUBTITLES:

“LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures – Complete Season One” is presented in English and Spanish 5.1 Dolby Digital, and also French Dolby Digital 2.0 with subtitles in English SDH, French and Spanish.

While dialogue is crystal clear, as with its musical score and light saber sound effects and action sequences utilizing the surround channels, it would have been awesome to have a lossless soundtrack for the Blu-ray release.  But for the most part, audio is crystal clear.

SPECIAL FEATURES

“LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures – Complete Season One” comes with the following special features:

  • The Freemaker Adventures: Meet the Freemaker Family – (2:18) Featuring the voice talent of “Lego Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures”.
  • Freemaker Salvage and Repair – (1:00) The Freemaker Salvage and Repair commercial.

EXTRAS:

“LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures – Complete Season One” comes with a slipcover, six exclusive magnets and a DisneyMovieRewards code.


With the latest “LEGO Star Wars” animated series, “LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures” is a series that will no doubt appeal to children thanks to its young protagonist but also appeal to Star Wars fans who will be happy to see familiar faces and vehicles from the “Star Wars” films in this series.

The series revolves around the Freemaker family which consists of Kordi Freemaker, the protective sister; Zander Freemaker, the eldest brother and mechanic who specializes in creating new ships and devices from leftover components and their younger brother Rowan, a 12-year-old force-sensitive boy who doesn’t really listen to his siblings and often gets into trouble.

With the Galactic Empire in search of the Kyber Saber, they have a sith named Naare infiltrate the Freemaker family and to make Rowan think he’s a jedi with potential and that she is a jedi that sees that he is force-sensive and wants to train him.  But in truth, she is using his force-sensitive power to find the artifacts to rebuild the Kyber Saber.

And as the Freemakers look for the crystal artifacts, through their adventures they will run into characters such as Jabba the hutt, Boba Fett, Dengar, Baash, Raam, Lando Calrissian, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia Organa, Admiral Ackbar, Jek-14 (from “LEGO Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles”) and more.

And for comedy relief, the series introduces us to Jabba the Hutt’s jealous cousin, Graballa the Hut and under his employ is the bounty hunter, Dengar.

The CG animation for this series is fantastic and close up shows wonderful detail, plastic sheen and for the most part, the animation looks great!  And because of how the characters are designed, it really does a great job of attracting children to the “LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures” toy sets.  The Blu-ray release comes with a few special features, but you do get six exclusive magnets included.

Overall, “LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures” is a wonderful LEGO animated series for children, the family and Star Wars fans who are young at heart.  Fun, adventurous and action-packed, if you love LEGO and love “Star Wars”, then this Blu-ray release is definitely worth owning!
