Neste momento não tenho a informação do preço em Portugal, actualizarei quando receber essa informação.

O carrinho telecomandado parece bastante interessante, tanto a nível estético como na forma como é conduzido. Claro que tendo em conta as minhas opiniões quanto ao licenciamento de tudo e mais alguma coisa (ver aqui), pergunto se havia necessidade da chancela da Top Gear para este set.

Outro ponto em que também não tenho a certeza na opinião é a utilização da combinação do smartphone/app para a condução do veículo versus a utilização de um comando dedicado igual ao semelhante aos dos últimos comboios LEGO. Se por um lado a solução utilizada neste conjunto evita um custo desnecessário já que acredito que qualquer criança tenha acesso a um smartphone para guiar o carrinho, tenho alguma relutância nessa mesma necessidade. Primeiro sou da opinião que o acesso a estes gadgets pelos mais novos não deve ser incentivado (não chego ao ponto de utilizar a palavra "evitado"); segundo já estou algo escaldado com gadgets que necessitam de uma determinada app que passado um certo período de tempo deixa de ser suportada e depois é extremamente difícil de conseguir pô-la a funcionar, coisa que não acontece com os comandos dedicados (principalmente os da LEGO) que conseguem atravessar gerações.

Claro que esta última conversa poderá não ter relevância se o tal smarthub estiver preparado para as ambas possibilidades :D
