Dodge and The LEGO Group have announced a second LEGO Speed Champions collaboration, which will bring a Mopar Dodge//SRT Top Fuel Dragster and a 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A building sets to be released on June 1 on LEGO.com
The 627-piece set will feature the real-life counterparts on the box to compare with the model creations. The set comes with a wide chassis, which allows for more detailing — realistic details being the selling point of the series — stickers, and two miniature figures wearing Dodge race apparel and helmets.
“Owning, or aspiring to own, a Dodge muscle car is as much about the lifestyle of joining the Brotherhood of Muscle as it is about the vehicle purchase,” says Tim Kuniskis, Dodge Brand CEO at Stellantis. “As a result, our brand enthusiasts are passionate about all things Dodge, including the latest cool collectibles.”
The 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A will be the first purple vehicle in the LEGO Speed Champions Series, donning the official Dodge name Plum Crazy and is more than five inches long and two inches high. The MOPAR Dodge//SRT Top Fuel Dragster is over 13.5 inches long and four inches high.
“In 2021, we are extremely excited to reteam with Dodge and expand the Speed Champions 8W Vehicle Collection even further by including new vehicle types and building experiences, for the first time, that appeal to vehicle fans of all ages,” said Christopher Stamp, LEGO design lead.
The two companies teamed up in 2019 with the launch of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and the 1970 Dodge Charger R/T.
