The ninth instalment in the Fast & Furious franchise has been delayed – because obviously – until April 2021. But happily the Lego hasn’t.
While not quite in the same league as the £330 (approx. RM1,767), 3,599-piece Bugatti Chiron or RM899, 2,573-piece Land Rover Defender, the first-ever Fast & Furious Lego Technic set is still quite the thing. Modelled on Dom’s 1970 Dodge Charger R/T and featuring as many pieces as the first ten minutes of F9 will gear changes (that’s 1,077, in case you were wondering), the new set costs US$99.90 (approx. RM432) and ships on 27 April.
It’s about 39cm long and 11cm high, and because it’s a Technic model there’s some cool stuff going on underneath, like moving pistons for the faithfully recreated V8, working wishbone suspension, steering and a deployable wheelie bar. Of course the doors, bonnet and boot all open too, revealing some cool little details like a boot-full of nitro bottles.
Your kids will love it, before you stop kidding yourself and just build the damn thing without them.
