German site MultiMediaStore has posted images of the upcoming LEGO Ideas set (21307), the Caterham Seven 620R ahead of any official announcement from LEGO. We’ll probably see a lot more photos when LEGO does announce the set. Recently when this happens, LEGO follows on quickly with the official announcement.
The Caterham Seven 620R was selected as one of two sets to be released from LEGO Ideas that reached 10,000 plus supporters between May and September of 2015. This and the Adventure Time set were announced way back in March. The Adventure Time set was announced in July, but has yet to see the light of day.
In the meantime, we know this set will have 775 pieces and cost around $79.99 USD when it is released, likely in October.
Over on the EuroBricks forum, fan reaction is mixed with many saying that the proportions are off or that they prefer the submitted Ideas versions. It’s not uncommon that LEGO changes the build from what is submitted or that fans are slightly disappointed. LEGO will usually have worked with the license owner (Caterham) on the design and will have tweaked it until both are happy. I can’t say for sure this happened here, but it would stand to reason.
