Universal Brand Development and The LEGO Group expanded their licensing partnership to include the high-octane Fast & Furious franchise. The news comes ahead of this Friday’s trailer debut for the ninth chapter in what’s now being dubbed “The Fast Saga.”
“The Fast & Furious saga continues its blockbuster growth in fun, new ways — with video games, a new animated series, and now in the construction toy segment,” says Joe Lawandus, senior vice president and general manager, global toys and hardlines, Universal Brand Development. “Fans across generations will love building the Fast & Furious car of their dreams with this LEGO Technic set.”
Our epic trailer launch and concert in Miami for F9 is right around the corner. Can’t wait to show you on 1/31. All love.

Little is known about what LEGO Technic will offer aside from the fact that a Fast & Furious set geared toward older kids ages 10 and up will be available on April 27.
“The LEGO Technic brand with its authenticity and attention to detail and the action-packed Fast & Furious franchise are a great match,” says Jill Wilfert, vice president of inbound and entertainment licensing at the LEGO Group. “Both franchises are known for creativity and cool cars so we are really excited to work with Universal on this awesome product that both LEGO Technic and Fast & Furious fans are going to love to build.”
