Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R from 2Fast 2Furious joins Lego Speed Champions collection

Flip on the underglow, hit the boost button and make your personal 319-piece Gallo 24 Skyline – full with a film-star mini-figure

Relive the motion picture we all hate to appreciate – and with way too numerous equipment alterations – with the most recent addition to the Lego Velocity Champions catalogue, the silver R34 Nissan Skyline GT-R from the 2003 film, 2Speedy2Furious.

The established, which consists of a Brian O’Connor figure (the character in the film played by Paul Walker), styles the silver and blue Skyline’s C-West system kit, HRE wheels, intercooler spray package and huge rear wing. There is even a blue underglow to assist mix into the Miami road-racing scene.

On the within, it is properly proper-hand-generate and the passenger seat has been replaced by the Nitrous Oxide tanks.

We’ll get in touch with it now, the design is exciting … but far from precise. Which is a very little ironic given the R34 Skyline’s normally angular style.

The facet profile is a minor off (the turret appears to be like far too very low) and the quad-lamp front finish appears to be far more like a third-gen Mustang than an R34, but we fully grasp the limits of Lego and like what they have tried out to do.

As nonetheless, there are no facts on timing for Australia, but we suppose established 76917 will arrive in the new calendar year, priced equally to current Pace Winner products which value about $30.

The Nissan Skyline is the second Speed Champions set to be licenced from the Rapidly and Furious franchise, signing up for set 76912, Domenic Toretto’s 1970 Dodge Charger.
