LEGO’s first collaboration with Fast & Furious, Dom’s Dodge Charger, was an accurate representation of the onscreen muscle car. But it ain’t cheap. Thankfully, there is a cheaper alternative: LEGO Speed Champions Fast & Furious Dodge Charger R/T (76912).
Oh, wait. Is that really a Dodge Charger? Cos’ the LEGO Speed Champions Fast & Furious Dodge Charger R/T (76912) looks kind of overly squarish. Don’t get me wrong. The super square aesthetic has its charm but it’s just not very, you know, 70s Charger, which has the bulging muscular look.
Save for that super straight edges, this 345-piece set has all the authentic features including a hood scoop, molded silver-colored wheel inserts, and a super cool front grille with the ‘Charger’ branding.
I think that’s about it. And oh, it does come with a Dominic Toretto Minifigure, with a wrench, because that’s what Dom does: work on his own cars. When completed, the model measures over 2 inches tall, 6.5 inches long, and 2.5 inches wide (5 x 17 x 7 cm).
The LEGO Speed Champions Fast & Furious Dodge Charger R/T (76912) is available now for US$19.99. Recommended for ages 8 and up.
