When I was a kid (well, a much younger kid than now) I used to collect a lot of toy cars. My favourite was a model of a beautiful blue Shelby Cobra. Because of that, I’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for Shelby cars. This Ford Shelby GT500 from our Mega Bloks® Need for Speed™ — Build & Customize collection is a great modernization of the Shelby brand.
The build is a total of 73 pieces, the majority of them providing structural support and a nice weight. The outer shell that gives the car its handsome, car-ly appearance is made up entirely of custom-moulded parts for a level of visual accuracy unmatched by any other constructable cars.
The only indication that this model is made of bloks are the seams and the visible bloks on the underside. Otherwise, it is an incredible scale model car. But the advantage of building it with bloks is that you can customize it how you want.
The set includes two sets of mags and two hoods that you can use to customize the appearance of your car!
Mega Bloks Need for Speed is a great introduction to building for car-lovers everywhere, and it’s a great way for builders to finally get authentic scale models of their favourite vehicles. Check out the official website for more info!
