The Fastest and Most Furious Lego Yet

Lego alert, Lego alert, Dodge Ram is about to transport you to your childhood. Back to a time these little plastic blocks were where it was at and you jealously guarded your collection of Hot Wheels kept lovingly in a fishing tackle box. Lego was certainly up to fun and games when they picked the fast and furious Dodge Charger for a maiden voyage into Lego Land and I think it may leave Hot Wheels in its dust!

 

Lego certainly nailed down the right market not just for these movies but especially for muscle car and car enthusiasts in general. At times like the COVID-19 lockdown when road trips and nonessential travel is highly discouraged, we need a new plan. So what better thing to do for these folks in particular but have a Fast and Furious marathon. Right along with putting together a Lego kit modelled after a replica of Dominic Toretto’s badass 1970 Dodge Charger R/T.

 

This is a Fast and Furious nod to the nonstop multitude of movies in this fast paced series, specifically the newest addition F9 also delayed by the COVID-19 outbreak. So really, thank goodness for Lego! It has been the main fun time focus for my 9 year old this week, though he has been busy building space stations and superhero lairs. However I’m sure this super car kit will hold some interest for boys and girls of all sizes!

 

The Danish toymaker has created a pretty wicked replica of the 1970 Dodge Charger which is part of their Technic line that features Lego with many moving parts. This kit is a 1:3-scale, 1077-piece Lego Technic set featuring a V-8 engine with moving pieces. For a closer examination there is no better way than to start under the hood.

 

There you will find a Lego version of the car’s 900-hp Hemi V-8 engine complete with working pistons. And wonder of wonders you will find the double wishbone suspension that underpins the Charger R/T. In the trunk there is a set of nitrous canisters that add a little extra oomph for when those pesky Hot Wheels are hot on your tailpipe. There’s even a wheelie bar hanging off the rear end so the Charger can be displayed in an almost upright pose after it’s built. Cue the admiration ohhhhhh, ahhhhhhhh! Displayed on your coffee table it will make a great centrepiece next to the chips, hot dogs and cans of tuna! For your movie watching convenience the films in order of release are as follows.
