An interesting piece of news came out this morning, and it’s telling us that LEGO is adding another licensed set in its portfolio. To begin with, LEGO is no stranger in the automotive field with an impressive list of LEGO Technic sets that highlight the most sophisticated vehicles around such as the upcoming LEGO Technic Land Rover Defender (42110) and the superbly elegant Bugatti Chiron (42083). From the looks of it, LEGO is pushing the envelope once more by partnering with one of television’s longest-running, and high-adrenalin motoring entertainment program. BBC Studios just published a press release earlier today underscoring the venture that the British TV company and The LEGO Group will jointly undertake. Based on one of its highly popular series, BBC’s Top Gear will now have a LEGO set of its own, a LEGO Technic Top Gear set to be exact. According to License Global, this collaborative set is expected to launch in early 2020.
Details about this new set are understandably scant as of this time, but from what we can glean from the press release, this LEGO Technic Top Gear set will definitely feature a distinctive, action-packed model that is reflective of the show’s fast-paced and stunt-filled sequences. There is no exact date given on when this set will be released, but we can somehow expect it to be officially revealed during the first quarter of 2020. Here’s BBC Studio’s complete press release for your reference.
