Special Edition: Lego Shell Ferrari 30196 Review

Since I haven’t been able to get the 30190, I’ll review the minifig set of the Shell promo, the 30196 Ferrari Pit Crew. I must say, this promo set has the most value. Three minifigs for P180 at the most is a very, very good deal! The Polybag This set has 50 pieces, which is a lot considering this is a minifig set. Minifig parts Their accessories Instructions As expected from Lego Ferrari sets (and as seen in the minifig parts), this would require stickers on their torsos. Not using them would just make the minifigs “generic”. Sticker sheet My favorite piece here would be this one. I forget what it’s called (Erlenmeyer flask?) Reminds me of chemistry class Again, P180 for 3 minifigs is a good deal. Of course you have to gas up at least P1,500 of Shell fuel. The minifigs Ferrari Race Mechanic with jack Ferrari Refuelling Engineer with refuelling machine Shell Track Scientist and her chemicals The refuelling machine was the most “complicated” build, but the chemicals were the most intriguing …

Special Edition: Lego Shell Ferrari 30195 Review

Hope you guys enjoyed my first review of the Lego Shell Ferrari Promo sets, the 30191 Ferrari F1 Truck. Today, I’ll be reviewing the set I got for free for my guesting on Umagang Kay Ganda, the 30195 FXX. Polybag It’s got 56 pcs and the usual instructions and sticker sheet. The sticker sheet is a MUST if you want to be faithful to the FXX details. Instructions 56 pcs all in all You’re gonna need these, unfortunately. You’ll see this again in 30190 Same with the Ferrari F1 Truck promo set, it’s pretty much a 5-minute build. I ended up with 4 extra pcs. Halfway there Extra pieces (a 2×3 plate!?!?!) Now if you insist on not using the stickers, this is what you’ll end up with. Nothing like the real FXX No stickers. Could it be the Batmobile? Now, with the stickers, it’s pretty accurate considering its size and pc count What’s that at the back? Not as detailed as its big brother, the 8156, but it’s a pretty accurate representation of the FXX …

Special Edition: Lego Shell Ferrari 30191 Review

Aside from Jordan kicks, one other hobby I have is collecting Lego, particularly the Ferrari licensed sets. Officially, Lego hasn’t released a Ferrari licensed set since 2009… Until now. Shell has now come up with promotional Lego Ferrari sets wherein one can get a polybag for every P1,500 purchase of fuel for either P140 or P180, depending on what fuel one filled up with. Almost a week into the promotion, I managed to grab five (5) out of the seven (7) sets available, and I’ll first review the 30191 Scuderia Ferrari Truck. Polybag The set has 40 pcs, an instruction sheet, and one sticker sheet. Amazingly, this set has NO EXTRA pieces. Instructions Stickers All Parts There are 3 parts that intrigued me, all of which could be useful for future MOCs.  First, we have the 2 x 1 cheese slopes, 2 pcs in red, and 1 pc in light grey. 2×1 cheese slopes Then we have 2 pcs of 2 x 4 curved slopes. 2×4 curved slopes And lastly, a 1×4 arch 1×4 arch Now on to the build.
