Lego Ford Mustang and F-150 Raptor on-sale from March
A LEGO Ford Mustang and F-150 Raptor will join the LEGO Speed Champions series, joining other iconic LEGO vehicles, including the Mini and VW Kombi.
LEGO AND FORD have announced the release of a LEGO Ford Mustang and F-150 Raptor to go on-sale in the US from March. LEGO Australia has been contacted for local pricing and release details, but hadn’t responded at the time of publication.
“The LEGO Group is one of the world’s top toy companies and is loved by children and adults around the globe,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford’s president of The Americas. “Many of us grew up playing with LEGO, so this is a dream project for many of us – including our engineers.”
The 185-piece Mustang kit includes a time board and race driver. The 664-piece F-150 Raptor set includes a well-equipped garage, trailer, a drag racing Christmas tree and Model A hot rod, plus a crew of Ford workers to ensure top-quality work.
“We are excited about the new LEGO Speed Champions sets based on iconic Ford vehicles,” said Jill Wilfert, vice president, licensing & entertainment at The LEGO Group. “Each LEGO Ford car tells a story and has infinite play possibilities. With these new sets, kids can play out their ultimate car fantasies. They are able to role play and become the LEGO minifigure, stepping into the greatest cars on earth.”
The Denmark-based LEGO team worked closely with Ford licensing and design teams throughout development and product design, collaborating on every detail down to the packaging and marketing materials, Ford said.
