Nuremberg International Toy Fair has kicked off today in Germany, with the LEGO Group announcing a new LEGO Technic set based on the Fast & Furious film franchise. Ahead of the release of Fast & Furious 9 in May, the LEGO set will launch on April 27.
“The Fast & Furious saga continues its blockbuster growth in fun, new ways – with video games, a new animated series and now in the construction toy segment,” says Joe Lawandus, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Global Toys and Hardlines, Universal Brand Development. “Fans across generations will love building the Fast & Furious car of their dreams with this LEGO Technic set.”
There are no further details from the LEGO Group on what the set will be, but rumours suggest it will be the Dodge Charger.
“The LEGO Technic brand with its authenticity and attention to detail and the action packed Fast & Furious franchise are a great match. Both franchises are known for creativity and cool cars so we are really excited to work with Universal on this awesome product that both LEGO Technic and Fast & Furious fans are going to love to build!” says Jill Wilfert, Vice President of Inbound & Entertainment Licensing at the LEGO Group.
Fast & Furious 9 will be released in cinemas on May 22, 2020.
