I attended the LEGO Ford announcement at NAIAS as a guest of the Ford Motor Co.; however, all opinions are my own. #FORDNAIAS
With all of the surprises and new debuts announced during the 2016 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, it was perhaps the first look at the new LEGO Ford Mustang and F-150 Raptor kits that got captured the hearts of both collectors and kids at heart.
Introduced by Craig Callum, LEGO Lead Designer and Joe Hinrichs, Executive Vice President and President of the Americas, the sets are sure to be scooped up by collectors as soon as they hit the shelves.
LEGO Ford Mustang Set
While the 50+-year-old Ford Mustang has been available in plenty of model and toy kits in the past, this is the first time LEGO® and Ford have worked together to create a playset that features their popular muscle car. The new LEGO kit includes a mini figure mechanic, a lap-time sign, and the blue and white LEGO version of the car. The 185-piece Ford Mustang LEGO set will have a retail price of $14.99.
LEGO Ford F-150 Raptor Set
The LEGO Ford F-150 Raptor set will include a car-hauler trailer with a Model A hot rod car, a mechanic’s station, a drag strip Christmas tree, an engine stand, and a mechanic minifig with a wrench. The 664 piece Ford F-150 Raptor LEGO set will retail for $49.99.
LEGO Speed Champions Sets
These two new Ford LEGO sets will be available on March 1, 2016, at LEGO and Toys ‘R Us stores nationwide. They join the popular LEGO Speed Champions sets for kids ages 7 – 14. Previous releases have featured the LaFerrari, 458 Italia GT2, McLaren P1, and Porsche 918 Spyder. There are also three sets that come complete with accessories including the McLaren Mercedes Pit Stop (a fully equipped convertible garage and pit stop and a MP4-29 race car), the Porsche 911 GT Finish Line (starting lights, finish line, 2 cars, mini figures, and more), and theF14 T and Scuderia Ferrari Truck.
Leggo is a powerhouse brand!! I love the innovation that do every year this is amazing how they collaborated with Ford!
Oh my goodness, that is so fun. I’m not sure it’s safe to show my husband this!
This is so awesome. So many amazing things can be done with Lego. Super cool.
I know some little boys and some big grown-up boys who would love these Lego’s! It looks like this show was a lot of fun!
I adore that they debuted these new lego sets at the NAIAS. What a fun way to start the hype for these new sets.
Oh my goodness! I think my son would love something like this. He is a teenager but his love for Legos I don’t think will ever go away.
These are awesome Lego sculptures! It looks like the Detroit show was pretty fun!
My 7yr old son loves cars! These LEGO sets would be a great way to bond with dad until he is old enough to help rebuild an actual vehicle.
The Detroit show has always been my favorite because it’s the 1st and there’s usually SNOW! 🙂
Oh my! My husband is a muscle car enthusiast. He would love this set to put together with my daughter.
My nephew would love the Lego F-150! He loves Legos and he loves trucks!
The Ford F-150 set is my fav – so much playtime fun with the mechanics tools, trailer, and extra car.
Cuuuuuute. The mustang will always be a classic – this was a great move on LEGO’s part. We are LEGO heads in our house.
SO cute! The designer was adorable in his Harry Potter-style glasses and accent. He kept a room full of drooling reporters from making off with these new toys by telling them that for every LEGO Ford that disappears a child will cry – it worked! 🙂
Those are so cute! I have a huge motorhead in my family who’s birthday is coming up. I’ll be giving him a cool Lego gift this year!
I would love to go to the Detroit auto show one day. How cool that Ford is partnering up with Lego.
The Detroit show is my favorite – it’s the 1st and there’s usually SNOW!
