The LEGO Group, along with Universal, will develop Fast & Furious-branded LEGO kits, which is rumored to fall under the former’s more advanced Technic line. This branch of LEGO building sets are also almost exclusively cars, so it makes a lot of sense. The new sets will be revealed later this year and will be available on April 27 ahead of the release of F9 in theaters. Keep it locked here for official photos.
“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,” Joe Lawandus, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Global Toys and Hardlines, Universal Brand Development stated in an official press release. “Fans across generations will love building the Fast & Furious car of their dreams with this LEGO Technic set.”
“The LEGO Technic brand with its authenticity and attention to detail and the action packed Fast & Furious franchise are a great match,” Jill Wilfert, Vice President of Inbound & Entertainment Licensing at the LEGO Group added. “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!”
