Hey hey, Happy New Year 2016!
The Lego Shell collection came (1st Nov) and went (13th Dec) by creating such fanfare for Lego collectors around Malaysia late last year. I wasn’t aware of this (as I’m not the person who’s in charged of filling the gas tank). My sis knew about it but didn’t tell me. Thankfully I chanced upon it when I came back from Taiwan. So I got myself a Fiorano Shell Station. My sis wasn’t interested at that time but somehow, someway I did a Cobb’s inception on her (inception without sleep, only wakefulness. More power. Ha!). Very very soon (as in few hours later), she became a fanatic… like planning when her car needs petrol, waking really early to buy the latest model and calling Shell stations to buy past models.
Shown here are only 6 models. Shell released one more on 13th Dec with very limited quantity. It’s also RM40 for regular petrol but you get to purchase the model at RM13.90 instead.
I didn’t collect all seven models because some are less fascinating. I only got four which I’m interested in. One of it were sourced from eBay (Ferrari F138; the first one, since I missed it the first time). My sis collected five except the first two but she eventually got it from eBay as well. She didn’t get the casing (too limited) and those from eBay are $$ and looks fragile (plastic?); not worth getting I guess.
Building this mini Lego set got me like “Wow” and “Genius brick planning”. Not that I’ve never played with Lego. I did but the last time I did was during my childhood (discounting the Star Wars Lego characters ya).
Okay, so did ya collect them? Tell me.
