Land Rover Defender LEGO kit revealed

Land Rover Defender LEGO kit revealed news

Could this LEGO set of the Land Rover Defender be a leak of the 2020 model?

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.

If that doesn’t spark your inner-child to life, perhaps a life-size LEGO VW Kombi campervan complete with pop-up roof, kitchenette, sliding door and real VW tyres will do the trick!
