LEGO news website, The Brothers Brick, has revealed an upcoming LEGO Technic set featuring a replica of the iconic Land Rover Defender.
However, there has been no official release made by LEGO, suggesting the Technic set may be a ‘leak’ of the 2020 Defender. While that is unconfirmed, the image on the box does marry up somewhat with recent spy shots of the looming Defender.
The 2573-piece LEGO Defender is equipped with a working steering mechanism and a four-speed sequential gearbox. Running hardware includes three differentials and independent suspension, while a working winch resides on the front bumper.
The Defender wears an olive green livery, the first for a LEGO Technic model, and it measures 22cm high, 42cm long and 20cm wide.
Rumour has it that the LEGO Defender will go on sale in the UK in October, with a £159.99 price tag.
