The Lego Group partners with Universal for new product launch

Published on: 1st April 2020

The Lego Group and Universal Brand Development have revealed the first Lego set inspired by global blockbuster franchise Fast and Furious fans.

The Lego Technic Dom’s Dodge Charger will be available to buy globally from 27th April 2020. A 1,077-piece replica of Dominic Toretto’s legendary 1970 Dodge Charger R/T, the set will provide a new building challenge as fans gear up for the latest instalment in the Fast saga, F9, which hits cinemas in April 2021.

Once the build is complete, fans can try out Dom’s cool stunts and recreate the high-speed chases from the Fast & Furious movies. The model can also be 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 V8 engine. Fans can build moving pistons, double wishbone suspension and a wheelie bar to show off the car’s best moves. There are nitro bottles to put in the trunk and a fire extinguisher in the cockpit.

The Dom’s Dodge Charger is designed for builders aged 10 plus. The set is available to pre-order now and will be available to buy globally from 27th 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.”
