Dodge does it all. Super powerful muscle cars? Check. Iconic designs? Check. Toy-car models? Check. Collaborating with one of the most successful toy brands in history for the second time? Check.
American muscle-car automaker Dodge is known for its powerful and iconic vehicles, but what people don’t know is they dabble in the toy-making world.
For the second time, Dodge and toy supergiant LEGO have joined forces to produce the all-new LEGO Speed Champions Dodge//SRT Top Fuel Dragster and the 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A building kits.
Already available for purchase, the two kits serve as legitimate small-scale models that car enthusiasts, both young and old, can appreciate and build themselves.
“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,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge Brand Chief Executive Officer — Stellantis. “As a result, our brand enthusiasts are passionate about all things Dodge, including the latest cool collectibles. So, following the success of the Dodge 2018 LEGO Speed Champions building set, fans will now be able to build and show off not only the first-ever 8-inch-wide (8W) muscle car but also the first-ever Plum Crazy 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A, along with an incredibly detailed 131/2-long Top Fuel Dragster.”
Here’s what buyers can look forward to in the kit:
- 627 LEGO pieces
- Real-life 1970 Challenger T/A and Top Fuel Dragster box art to match the final product pieces
- One female Top Fuel Dragster driver
- One male Challenger driver
“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.
Also new in this set is a wider chassis that will allow space for decorative stickers.
The 1971 Dodge Challenger T/A will be the first purple vehicle in the LEGO Speed Champions lineup and will measure roughly 2 inches (5 cm) high, 5 inches (16 cm) long, and 2.5 inches (7 cm) wide. The Mopar Dodge//SRT is an estimated 4 inches (10 cm) high, 13.5 inches (35 cm) long, and 2.5 inches (7 cm) wide.
The last LEGO Speed Champions collaboration with Dodge, which launched in January 2019, featured a 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and a 1970 Dodge Charger R/T.
