    well i guess they can’t all be pretty. this is my favorite real car out of the bunch, but unfortunately the least appealing in lego form. i mean, i’m still gonna buy the crap out of this, maybe two copies since it looks like you may be able to have a clean white model without most of those stickers.
    and wow, it looks like the box size doubled on these things.
