Shell V-Power LEGO® 2014/2015 Collection. Now in Malaysia!
Still remember about these promotional Lego Ferrari polybag released in late 2012/ early 2013?
I'm sure many people know about the appearance of a second wave of these set in late 2014/early 2015. Our neighbouring country, Singaporean have enjoyed this promotion almost a year ago (29 August to 20 November 2014).
At the time, I'm sure many Malaysian disappointed because there are rumours saying that these polybag will not be available in Malaysia at all. This is because there was news in the month of October 2014 says that LEGO to end its partnership with Shell, due to pressure from environmental groups. (-_-)'
But now, I can't believe we Malaysian also could enjoy the same promotion! Despite having to wait almost a year, many Malaysian will be relieved with this promotion. Some of my friends had to spend almost RM250 for the full set of 7 before!
Phew, what a good news. The promotion for the second series of Shell LEGO sets runs from 1 November 2015 to 31 January 2016 available at Shell petrol stations around the Malaysia with a new model released each week.
You may check Shell Malaysia's website for more details, especially the TNC. You will be able to collect 7 exclusive models featuring four iconic Ferrari cars, a special limited edition Shell Tanker, a Finish Line podium and a Shell Station modelled after the one at Fiorano circuit, Scuderia Ferrari’s private racetrack in Maranello, Italy.
I have found these posters regarding this promotion:
Same information found on Shell Malaysia website:
Eh wait, where's the 40196 Shell Tanker? It's not in the list!!!!
Ahahaa.. calm down...
Shell Malaysia already state these release date for the Lego set:
(that's why i told you to check the TNC :D)
40190 Ferrari F138 – 1 November 2015
40195 Shell Station – 8 November 2015
40192 Ferrari 250 GTO – 15 November 2015
40191 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta – 22 November 2015
40193 Ferrari 512 S – 29 November 2015
40194 Finish Line and Podium – 6 December 2015
40196 Shell Tanker – 13 December 2015
I hate it when they put "limited edition" to any toy or lego set. that's when the scalpers go crazy! In ebay, you may find this tanker at price tag between RM70 to RM90.. each!
I wonder if Shell Malaysia also will bring in display case for these set. I remember sharing this pic in my post before.
If it is true display case like this is going on for sale, meaning it will become more "rare and limited" than 40196 Shell Tanker. ahaha...

The display case that we might get may look like this [Image found on the internet]
Oh my it's sooooooooo awesome! If i'm not mistaken, it is the same case design that was distributed in Indonesia earlier this year :))
