Drome theme (in which racing got some degree of story integration) was awesome, and the online game was more awesome. Also Xalax (2001) racers in the same boat. Tiny turbos were pretty rad, have 30 or so in a bin at home. Also
You mean Tiny Turbos? Those were the best part of Racers. I think the only non-Tiny Turbo sets I ever got were the 2006 Power Racers and most of the 2007 Power Racers. Right now, I only have 1 Tiny Turbos set still together, because the stickers on a lot started peeling off. I’ll probably start ordering back my old Tiny Turbos sets from Amazon and/or Bricklink, but I guess the Bullet Run set will have to do for now.
This theme, which ran from 1998 to 2013 is aparentlly now a forgotten theme. That is why i want to start this topic to revive it in the LEGO community. To me, this is like one of the best themes off all time… but anyone else seems to have forgot it… Here are some of my favourite sets of this theme I wish I would own:
Ok, we still have the Speed Champions theme today, but belive me, that theme is NOTHING. The Original LEGO Racers had so cool cartoony cars, based on real life models, but mostly they made their own crazy cars. I will always love this theme, no matter if people care about it or not. Here are some more sets:
Oh I loved this theme. I got at least 40 sets from the theme, mostly Tiny Turbos, some pull-backs, some air-stompers, some Drome Racers, some Technic, you name it. Almost every subtheme from the series, I had a set from.
I owned only 3 sets when the theme was still going on which are: 7968 Strong, 8303 Demon Destroyer, and 8304 Smokin’ Slickster. Looking back on how cool this theme was, I wish I got more of those sets. I am probably going to try to get some from BrickLink or Ebay in the next mounths…
