LEGO anyone?
Lego Ideas user FisheeC3 re-created the cast and set of "Top Gear," complete with figures of Clarkson in his trademark late-'80s jeans, May in his aesthetically challenged sweater, Hammond with teeth bright enought to produce lens flares on the TV camera and of course The Stig. What more, there's a wall with guest lap times from the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car segment, TV cameras, a backdrop wall, a main stage for the cast, and a Toyota Hilux truck that the trio just could not destroy.
If all goes well, the Lego brick incarnation of the long-running BBC show could be made into a commercial Lego set that you can buy. This concept Lego set needs to reach 10,000 votes to advance to the next stage, where the company will evaluate it for production. If it passes that stage with whatever changes Lego has to make in order for it to be easily producible, it will be made into a set that you could buy.

Also, UPDATE: The former Top Gear trio performed three shows in Belfast as their stadium show got underway several months later than originally scheduled due to the "fracas" that brought Clarkson's tenure as host of the world's most popular motoring show to a premature close.
His Top Gear Live stage show was subsequently stripped of its BBC branding and renamed Clarkson, Hammond and May Live.
During the first performances of the show, Clarkson entered the stage in a hovercraft to the tune of Eye Of The Tiger, before dropping hints that he may be preparing a new television show. He said: "We have had a lot of interest from all around the world in our TV programme and who knows what may happen."
The live show will next visit Sheffield's Motorpoint Arena from 5-7 June, before heading to Johannesburg for 12-14 June, Stavanger for 19-21 June, Perth, Australia, for 18-19 July, Sydney for 25-26 July, Warsaw for 24 October and finally London for 28-29 November.

Video Teaser for Last show taped with Jeremy Clarkson and the boys.
it appears the BBC have cobbled together the footage from both episodes and created one longer show with it. Two separate challenges will be included, one with the trio involved in an SUV race of some kind and another with classic European roadsters.

Chris Evans (left) to replace Jeremy Clarkson (right) as host of 'Top Gear'.
Evans and his new crew - which has yet to be announced - will face an extremely difficult task of replacing Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond.
As for Clarkson, who was dropped after punching a producer, and castmates May and Hammond, a deal is reportedly in the works to sign with Netflix for an all-new show.

Quote from Jeremy Clarkson Twitter: I'm very excited to announce that Hammond, May and I have signed a deal with @AmazonVideo.

Default Stig Staying

Top Gearís the Stig drove a player-customized 2015 Ford Focus RS wearing Forza Motorsport livery to Gamescom in Cologne, Germany. 345 horsepower hot hatch. To celebrate Forza Motorsport 6, Ford asked fans to design the livery for their custom Focus RS, though that isnít Fordís only crossover with Forza. Then the Stig (who apparently isnít joining Clarkson, May, and Hammond on their new show) drove the customized Focus RS to the event, hanging around in his always-quiet way.

As January gets closer I recommend Top Gear fans to get their Amazon Prime Video subscription right now before they jack up the price when Top Gear gets available. Millions of new subscribers at a new price seems to be the strategy right now....
