    They just showed up at a local Lego Store for me, too. I picked up Crusher Block & Racer X and it’s pretty neat, though after it was built I almost immediately started building a better trailer. The tractor and Racer X’s car are both super sweet, though.

    Almost picked up Grand Prix, too, but that’ll have to wait until next time I hit the store.

    If nothing else, I am glad that they’re once again producing monkeys.

    Does that Crusher Block trailer seriously not have a roof / side wall / rear wall (Well, door)? Wait, I take that back. On further inspection, it looks like the side wall it does have is also mostly empty air; nor is there a wall to the front of the trailer. I don’t get it.

    Because they didn’t want to create a new helmet piece, and using the aviator’s cap piece wouldn’t look enough like a race helmet? I dunno.

    Saw them all at TRU in Culver City, CA today. Looking pretty sweet. Will probably scoop them up this w/e.

    Mario? Not hardly. That is Speed Racer’s father who predates a certain plumber by many MANY years.

    @ Jai: I see no reason that they couldnt use a white aviator cap w a clear blue visor

    Keith Melton, but still, if one were to make a Mario diorama, this would be the ideal minifig. Yes?

    Didn’t anyone notice the hot pit-babe in the big set? Mario is waving at her. Does that terrific dress appear in other sets?
