Ford and LEGO will be starting off their partnership in fit fashion by including the Mustang GT350 and F-150 Raptor in their very own LEGO sets. The Mustang kit will come with 185 pieces, including a time board and a race car driver; the F-150 Raptor kit will be a whopping 664 pieces and will include a fully-equipped garage, a trailer, a Model A hot rod, a drag racing Christmas tree for setting up your races, and a full crew for pit work.
Basically, if you’re not a kid and are a lover of all things Ford, you’re going to wish that this came out when you were younger. But if that’s the case, chances are still pretty good you’ll get it anyway.
“The LEGO Group is one of the world’s top toy companies, and is loved by children and adults around the globe,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford president, The Americas. “Many of us grew up playing with LEGO, so this is a dream project for all of us—including our engineers.”
Suggested retail price for the Mustang set is $14.99, while the F-150 Raptor set is $49.99. GET THEM WALLETS READY, BOYS AND GIRLS!
