LEGO will make Dom Toretto’s Dodge Charger

Attention LEGO and Fast & Furious fans! LEGO will make Dom Toretto’s Dodge Charger. Based on the popular movie series, Dom’s 1970 Dodge Charger R/T will be a 1077-piece, 1:13 scale, Technic set. It will be available April 27th, for your Socially Distant Life, and it will retail for $99.99. The kit can be pre-ordered as of now.

Technic kits usually give up some design style for cool functionality but that does not seem to be the case here. Upon first look, the Charger actually looks like a Charger, unlike the Corvette ZR1, which was just bad. It even looks more realistic than the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. A closer look shows the big blown V8 engine, roll bar, and nitrous bottles. There are also typical LEGO features such as working suspension and steering.

Wheelie time!

Like in every Technic set, there is always something extra. In this case, there is a contraption that lifts the front-end of the Charger to simulate a wheelie. It does not really do anything dynamically, it’s just more of a display mode. The is Charger is 15-inches (39cm) long, 6-inches (16cm) wide and 4-inches (11cm) high. And yes, it is licensed by Dodge, whatever that means. Dom’s Minifigure is not included, sadly.

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 setinspired 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 instalment 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 availableto pre-order from 30 March from and to buy globally from 27 April 2020.

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.”

    That’s pretty cool. My youngest is really getting into LEGOs and I bought myself a Senna the other day (since I’ve always been into LEGO…).

    It would have been nice to have some ballast for the trunk to make the wheelie stand unneeded.

      I think it’s actually accurate to have the stand.

      Stand by I assume for all the other F&F Charger versions…

    Cool despite the F&F association.
    I still think the Mustang/F100 lego model is the most impressive, though.

      I love my Unimog! The Porsche GT3 RS is pretty amazing as well.

        Unimog is cool. The Porsche is a bit too organic to be replicating with LEGOs– I can’t embrace the GT3 RS model because it reminds me of this Bayformers monstrosity:
