We’re not usually fans of Technic sets around here. I mean, they are awesome and have some great engineering and motorization to them often, but it just isn’t our “thing”… Until now. LEGO introduced the new Dodge Charger from the Fast & Furious and it looks amazing!
Overall the set is more complete looking – it doesn’t look like a Technic set with open beams and gaps everywhere, which has long been part of my issue. It’s like last years Land Rover Defender or the Bugatti Chiron where the whole build is solid like a more traditional LEGO set – and that’s a personal bias not a real issue.
LEGO TECHNIC GOES FULL THROTTLE WITH DOM’S DODGE CHARGER SET FROM THE FAST & FURIOUS FRANCHISE
30 March 2020, Billund: Muscle car lovers and Fast & Furious fans are getting set for the ultimate thrill. Today, the LEGO Group and Universal Brand Development revealed the first LEGO set inspired by the high-octane, global blockbuster franchise: the awesome LEGO Technic Dom’s Dodge Charger.
The 1,077-piece replica of fearless street racer Dominic Toretto’s legendary 1970 Dodge Charger R/T will provide an exciting new building challenge as fans gear up for the latest installment in the Fast saga – F9, which hits theatres around the world beginning in April 2021.
But the fun doesn’t stop once the chequered flag comes down. Once the build is complete, fans can try out Dom’s cool stunts and recreate the daring high-speed chases from the Fast & Furious movies with the model. And when the streets need a rest, the model can be proudly displayed in its famous wheel-stand position.
The authentic replica of Dom’s all-time favourite car is packed with the same realistic details seen in the films. Just like the full-size version, the hood of the LEGO Technic Dom’s Dodge Charger pops open to reveal the iconic V8 engine.
Fans can feel like they’re in the garage with Dom fixing up his latest project as they build moving pistons, double wishbone suspension, a wheelie bar to show off the car’s best moves and (of course) put the nitro bottles in the trunk. If things get too hot, there’s a fire extinguisher in the cockpit too.
Inspired by the action-packed scenes from the Fast saga, the 1:13 scale LEGO Technic Dom’s Dodge Charger is designed for builders aged 10+. The set will be available to pre-order from 30 March from LEGO.com and to buy globally from 27 April 2020.
Samuel Tacchi, designer of LEGO Technic Dom’s Dodge Charger, said: “The high-octane action of the Fast & Furious franchise has captured the hearts and imaginations of petrol-heads the world over. We want to inspire people of all ages to explore their creativity through building whatever their passion is, and we know fans of LEGO Technic and the blockbuster franchise love cool cars and adrenaline-fuelled fun. Brought together by that same passion, we worked really closely with the Universal team to bring Dom’s Dodge Charger to life in the most minute detail to inspire Fast & Furious fans and LEGO Technic builders around the world.”
