LEGO Speed Champions 30434 Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro review

Available this June as a gift-with-purchase, polybag 30434 Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro is a neat continuation of smaller scale of LEGO Speed Champions sets.

Following on from last year’s 30343 McLaren Elva, 30434 Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro continues Speed Champions’ switch from four-stud-wide polybag vehicles to five-stud-wide polybag vehicles.

And much like the recent switch for the larger Speed Champions cars and trucks from six studs to eight studs wide, the extra width offers a whole world of detail and interest for these polybag builds.

Last year’s Elva was a neat, Matchbox-style car design that gave promise to this new mini-scale of car making for a highly-collectible line, and this year’s 30434 Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro very much continues that same approach.

Detailed, eye-catching and again based on a larger LEGO set – 76910 Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro and Aston Martin Vantage GT3 – 30434 Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro offers enough intrigue, interesting parts and all-round design to appeal to car enthusiasts looking for that added incentive to purchase at LEGO.com or in LEGO stores at the moment.

Furthermore, this is a substantial collection of parts – how many other polybags can you think of that come with their own second bag of smaller parts inside, plus a set of stickers? Indeed, combined with the fact that this has clearly gone through the same design team that produce the larger Speed Champions sets – meaning that it offers way more skill and application around LEGO building that usual – and this barely feels like a polybag and more like another full-on Speed Champions set.

30434 Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro is available from June 7 to June 19 in most territories (and June 7-12 in Belgium), free with purchases of £40 / $40 / €40 at LEGO.com or in LEGO stores, while stocks last.

In addition, LEGO City 30589 Go-Kart Racer is available while stocks last from June 7 to June 14 at LEGO.com or in LEGO stores with purchases at the same threshold of £40 / $40 / €40, meaning that qualifying spend can actually net you two free GWP polybags for the dates that they cross over.
