New Lego X Land Rover Icon Set Announced
The world of Lego never slows down, it seems like almost every week I am getting more announcements of upcoming sets heading to stores. My wallet is literally crying at me right now. This latest one in particular caught my eye.
As Land Rover celebrates its 75th Anniversary, the LEGO Group has introduced the LEGO ICONS 2023 Land Rover Defender 90 – igniting the spirit of adventure in builders of all ages. The sage green, 2,336-piece set is based on the classic design of the 1983 to 2016 Land Rover Defender and comes complete with all the accessories needed for an off-road adventure.
The Defender has racked up 75 years of all-terrain expeditions; instantly recognizable around the world, it has a unique record of adventure, humanitarian and hard work. Faithfully replicating the classic Defender, the two-in-one LEGO brick format means brick and car fanatics alike can choose to build and display the everyday road-ready model before activating adventure mode and customizing the build with accessories including the roof rack, engine snorkel, off-road front bumper and working winch, side rails, toolbox, a fire extinguisher, and traction plates for crossing mud and sand, and much more.
The LEGO Icons Classic Land Rover Defender 90 set is available from 1st April 2023 via LEGO Stores and www.lego.com/Defender.
