The latest kit from Lego for the F-150 Raptor consists of 1,379 pieces, that includes the engine, moving pistons, and suspension setup too!by Sidd Dhimaan, on
When you talk to a layman about Legos, he’s going to dismiss them as toys for kids. But, the company’s Technic division has made some serious strides when it comes to creating car models. It’s not just the fun kits like the Porsche 911 or the Ford GT, Lego has even created life-size, full-scale models like the McLaren 720S, the Bugatti Chiron, the McLaren Senna, and most recently, the Lamborghini Sian FKP37.
The company has taken a break from supercars, it seems, and has come up with a kit for the 2021 F-150 Raptor. The 2021 F-150 Raptor Lego Technic Kit comprises of 1,379 pieces and will be up for sale in August or early October. You’ll have to shell out 100 bucks for this kit.
This Lego F-150 Raptor Kit Is Quite Comprehensive
Finished in Ford’s Code Orange paint, the F-150 Raptor kit is quite detailed. Since it is in the SuperCrew configuration, the build comes with four doors. It features opening doors, a truck bed, and a hood. Given that it’s from the company’s ‘Technic’ arm, the kit comes with parts under the hood and under the skin as well. The Lego kit features the F-150 Raptor’s V-6 engine (not the real deal, obviously) with moving pistons. There’s even a suspension system on all four wheels.
When the exhaustive build is complete, your Lego F-150 Raptor will measure 18.9 inches in length, 11.1 inches in width, 4.65 inches in height, and will weigh around 4.25 pounds. It’ll be fun if Lego Technic comes up with a towing kit for this that will allow you to tow smaller Lego assembled cars! All in all, 1,379 pieces of plastic put to good use here.
How Much Does The Lego F-150 Raptor Cost?
The 1,379-part Lego Technic Ford F-150 Raptor kit is priced at $99.99. The plastic truck will debut either in August or in early October.
I wonder why such a tentative date. Is Lego also facing a chip shortage?
