    I was starting to wonder what car would be next in the Creator Expert line, I was thinking something like a London Black Taxi to go with the bus, but no, they’ve really gone for it this time...

    It has an ejector seat.

    I watched Jang's review and the gadgets are brilliant. The ejector seat and machineguns are very well done.

    There seems to be a fair bit of negativity towards the set (reading the brickset comments) but I'm not sure what anyone was expecting. One gripe I can kind of understand is the price ... but there are two licences involved.

    My gripe is that it looks gross, its so boxy, have a look at the actual car it's based on and it's unrecognisable. The Mini and the Beetle are both beautiful representations of the actual cars but this is just rubbish.

    The gadgets look amazing, and the build looks brilliant too, but as a display piece it's awful.

    I think it looks pretty great. Yeah, not as sleek as the real thing of course but I like it. But if I get any Lego credits this year they’ll be going on the Voltron set.

    Voltron looks ace but I have no real connection to it, not being ofay with the source. The set I'm most excited to see is the rumoured micro-scale Hogwarts. Could be really special.

    Well look, we’re all entitled to our likes and dislikes but you’re telling me some posh stick-waving boarding school kid is better than a team of giant robot lions that form one huge mega mech and that’s just everything that’s wrong with the world right there.

    It's not just that it's not as sleek, it's like a completely different car entirely, like, it's barely recognisable as being the car it's based on. As a car in its own right, it's nice, but it's just so disappointing as a "replica."

    Hogwarts could be utterly immense though.

    When you look at it from certain angles (and possibly squint a bit) it does sort of convey the feeling of a DB5... but let’s be honest, it really doesn’t stand up when compared to the real thing. I may have initially been over enthusiastic, I don’t reckon I’ll be getting this one.
