BUILD 10 SWEET MODELS!
What You Need
Every project in this book uses a common set of pieces—a complete list is included in the book. If you have set #5867, the LEGO CREATOR Super Speedster, you have all the bricks you need.
If you have a collection of other LEGO sets and want to determine which pieces you’re missing from set #5867, we recommend using Rebrickable (http://rebrickable.com/). To buy the parts you’re missing, you have a few options.
If you’re not lucky enough to live near an official LEGO retail store with a “Pick a Brick” wall, you can buy individual pieces online (http://shop.lego.com/en-US/Pick-A-Brick-ByTheme). You can also buy LEGO pieces from BrickLink (http://www.bricklink.com/), a comprehensive, international marketplace for buying new and used bricks.
Don’t forget that you can use parts in different colors or with similar shapes, too. That’s what’s so cool about building with LEGO bricks! You can always redesign and customize everything using your own imagination.
