Limited Edition Shell V-Power LEGO Collection 2015

Shell LEGO 2015

LEGOs! I just love them. I started out with the classic LEGO bricks when I was growing up and I’ve always enjoyed building stuff with LEGO bricks. I never lost my passion for miniature toys, when the Star Wars prequels came out in 2005, I bought the Darth Vader sets. It sat on my office desk as a proud testament to my love for LEGOs.

Building LEGOs

My better half and the kids adore LEGOs as well.

Kids

I always make it a point to buy the kids LEGOs during their birthdays (and even when it’s not) so we can all play together as a family since it’s something we all enjoy. It’s one of the few things the kids like to do besides playing with iPads and such so it’s always a good thing when we can spend quality time together.

Build LEGOs

I feel that it’s better than pacifying kids with electronic devices. Playing with LEGOs is a fun and positive family experience and I can’t stress enough on how much it has helped us keep the kids occupied.

Ferrari LEGO

Thus, it is with great delight when I found out that Shell is doing another LEGO collectible run with Ferrari as their partner. I hungrily lusted for them and managed to get the entire set of 7, which we built together as a family during the weekend.

LEGO Ferrari

The Shell V-Power LEGO Collection comes out every Sunday from 1st November 2015 to 13th December 2015 and features:

LEGO Ferrari F12berlinetta

Ferrari F12berlinetta
This is Ferrari’s fastest ever road car, which debuted in 2012. It’s powered by a naturally aspirated V12 engine with 730 BHP output. This LEGO model is built with 44 bricks.

LEGO Ferrari F138

Ferrari F138
The F138 is the 59th Formula One car built by Scuderia Ferrari for the 2013 FIA Formula One World Championship. It’s the last year they used the V8 engine before switching to the V6 and this car was driven to two Grand Prix victories by Fernando Alonso. The name comes from the production year and the 8th and final year they used the V8 engine in F1. This model is built with 42 LEGO bricks.

LEGO Ferrari 250 GTO

Ferrari 250 GTO
This is one of Ferrari’s most legendary GT (Grand Touring) cars. There are only 39 ever produced and it debuted in 1962. The 250 GTO is one of the rarest and most sought after vintage Ferrari models in the world. This Ferrari 250 GTO is built with 42 LEGO bricks.

LEGO Ferrari 512 S

Ferrari 512 S
This 5 litre V12 GT racer was produced in 1970 and debuted that year at the 24 Hours of Daytona before going on to the 24 Hours of Le Mans, scoring 4 overall wins and 2 category wins. There are only 25 Ferrari 512 S ever produced. This LEGO model has 49 bricks.

LEGO Finish Line and Podium

Finish Line and Podium
This playset includes a Start/Finish line, winner’s podium, Scuderia Ferrari Engineer LEGO minifigure, pit board and chequered flag. I love this minifigure – it comes in a Ferrari uniform and is a precious addition to our collection. The set has 63 LEGO bricks.

LEGO Shell Station

Shell Station
This playset is modelled after the Shell station at Scuderia Ferrari’s Fiorano track in Maranello and comes with a Shell Fuels Scientist LEGO minifigure. I highly recommend this one if you collect minifigures too. The set has 79 LEGO bricks.

LEGO Shell Tanker

Shell Tanker
Shell Tankers transport fuel to more than 40,000 service stations worldwide each day. You’ve probably seen one on the roads or in a Shell station. This model is a limited release model and it’s the only vehicle in the Shell V-Power LEGO Collection that doesn’t have the pullback motor. This is built with 93 LEGO bricks.

LEGO Race Track

Yup, we built every single model during the weekend. It was a lot of fun, everyone made at least one and we played with them in various scenarios. I even had a cardboard cutout race track with 3D pop-up elements and we tried racing on it. Haha.

Shell VPower LEGOs

This is a great way to build awesome moments with Shell. Get your hands on the Shell V-Power LEGO Collection by popping in to your nearest Shell station. They range from RM 9.90 to RM 13.90 and you can get it with a minimum RM 40 purchase of Shell V-Power or Shell FuelSave or a 4 litre purchase of Shell Helix motor oil.

Shell V-Power LEGOs

What better way to spend the school holidays than building a LEGO race track and Ferrari model cars with your kids?

You can also share them on social media with #ReadySetBuild – our photos of the building moments and finished LEGO models are there too!

  1. Hi,

    How did you manage to buy the whole set? I have missed this week’s Lego toy, and I’m trying to find out where else can I get it.

    • Yeah, I have the full set! :)

      I was lucky enough to get it from Shell themselves, they had a launch event, I believe everyone who went received a goodie bag with all the LEGOs including the racing sheet. It would be very hard to get some of the items especially the limited sets like Shell Tanker otherwise.

  2. When I was a kid, there were no LEGOs being sold in Malaysia. So I had to play them at one wealthy friend’s place as they bought them monthly from Hong Kong! Now it’s everywhere at the click of a mouse.
    I just returned from Tokyo and a Lego Freak friend asked me to get him a box from the Star Wars collections. Goodness! The price is so much higher and told him the online purchase is much cheaper. Oh well, the land & rentals are so expensive in Tokyo lah.

    I like your lego photos taken, so realistic. Hey, you looked like a good & dotting daddy in the photos.

    • Thanks mate! :)

      Yeah, I played with LEGOs as a kid too, but we were living in Kuching then and we definitely didn’t have LEGOs. The only toys we had were Barbie and He-Man Masters of the Universe. We had to go to KL and Singapore to get LEGOs and other toys, I think Toys R’ Us just opened in KL then (late 80’s) and it was sooo big to us then.

    • Yeah, I have the previous promotion too! :)

      Got it at another Shell event where they did the oil change. LoveMyRide I think. I got one for each of the kids.

    • Yeah, the kids love LEGOs! :)

      I do too, we still have one that we haven’t opened yet, the end scene to the LEGO movie, going to open that on Christmas while we have our annual family turkey dinner. The kids loved Legoland when we brought them there too, stayed at the LEGO hotel, which was quite expensive (close to RM 1,000 per night) but worth it.

    • Hello Dina! :)

      The event has already passed…it was held before the LEGO x Shell V-Power 2015 sets were released in the market. I believe the Shell Tanker has sold out, it was sold out within 30 minutes in Penang alone.

  3. Such a pleasant review for these 2nd wave Shell Lego Promo!
    May I ask where do you purchase the 3D Map race pad? It’s huge and would be much fun to play the Shell Lego’s on it

    • Yeah, the 3D map is a lot of fun! :)

      It has all the correct placemarkers and pop-ups for the Shell V-Power LEGO 2015 collection. I got it from the launch of this set by Shell, it was handed out in the goodie bag during registration. I believe all media and invited guests had one on that day. I’m not sure if it’s available from other avenues. Hope that helps.
