LEGO Technic Dom’s Dodge Charger drifts into view for F&F fansBy Staff Writer 31 March 2020 | Categories: news
Muscle car lovers and Fast & Furious fans - get ready for a thrill. Today, the LEGO Group revealed the first LEGO set inspired by the high-octane, global blockbuster franchise: the awesome 42111 LEGO Technic Dom’s Dodge Charger. The 1077-piece replica of Dom’s legendary 1970 Dodge Charger R/T will provide an exciting new building challenge as fans gear up for the latest instalment in the Fast saga – F9, which should hit theatres around the world beginning in April 2021.
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 Dodge Charger pops open to reveal the iconic V8 engine. You can actually build moving pistons and see the 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.
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.”
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 31 March from http://www.greatyellowbrick.co.za and to buy nationwide from 27 April 2020 at a recommended retail price of R1,699.99.
