The 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor, which was just announced, is now available in Lego form. The Lego Technic Raptor is now available for pre-order, with delivery set for October 1, just a few months after the actual thing.
The Lego Raptor model is 1,379 pieces tall, 16.5 inches long, and 7.0 inches wide, and it stands 6.0 inches tall, 16.5 inches long, and 7.0 inches broad.
Four doors open, the hood and pickup bed open, the suspension works, and there's a small engine with moving pistons.
Lego has recently developed an interest in off-road vehicles.
It's also released toy versions of the Land Rover Defender and Jeep Wrangler, in addition to the Raptor.
The Lego Raptor costs $99.99, which places it between the Jeep, which costs $49.99, and the Land Rover, which costs $199.99.
With 2,573 parts and features like functioning differentials, the Defender is a little more complicated than the other two.
The new Raptor, which is based on the revised 2021 Ford F-150, boasts more capability than its predecessor, owing to a new five-link rear suspension with coil springs (rather than leaf springs) and optional 37-inch tyres (35-inch tyres are standard).
The Raptor is powered by the same high-output version of Ford's 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 engine, which produces 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque.
With conventional four-wheel drive and low range, the engine is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission.
Ford has also announced that a new Raptor R will be released in 2022 with a V-8 engine.
We don't know which one yet, but all indicators point to a V-8 that has been supercharged.
Perhaps a Lego version of the vehicle will be released as well.
