If you are a fan of Lego Speed Champions and the Fast and Furious franchise, this news will probably make you happy. It looks like Lego is about to add another licensed movie property to its Speed Champions lineup in the form of the Nissan Skyline GT-R (R34) from the movie ‘2 Fast 2 Furious’. The product was previewed by a German Lego retailer JB Spielwaren.
Needless to say, the R34 Skyline was piloted by Paul Walker in the film, meaning the upcoming Lego Speed Champions product will also come with a minifigure of the actor. As a Japanese import, the Lego version will also come in a right-hand drive configuration, just like in the movie.
The Lego speed-champion Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 will join James Bond’s Aston Martin DB5 from 2018 and Dominic Toretto’s Dodge Charger from The fast and the furious starting in 2020 in the range of licensed film properties in Lego form.
No official details on the Lego Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 are yet available, apart from the 319 Lego bricks announced by JB Spielwaren. Again, the photos show an attempt to capture the details of the car from the film. This is especially true when viewed from the rear, showing off the iconic round taillights, as well as the painted rear wheel arch like the one seen in the film.
The Lego Speed Champions 2 Fast 2 Furious Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 will be fully revealed in detail on January 3, 2023.
Pricing and availability in the United States have not yet been confirmed, but JB Spielwaren has announced that pre-orders will begin on January 3. Pricing in this part of the world is listed at 21.24 Euros or around $22 at the current exchange rate.
