Lego Speed Champions adds one of the most iconic cars from the start of the Fast and Furious franchise. The new kit will include character busts of Paul Walker, Brian O’Conner, and a rolling representation of his famous R34 Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec. Through nine films, R34 O’Conner from 2 Fast 2 Furious perhaps overshadowed by the famous A80 Supra from the first film.
Thankfully, the kit looks to be respectful of the source material, and the famous blue-striped livery is instantly recognizable to fans of the franchise. Despite the small size of the Speed Champions builds, Lego doesn’t miss out on some of the other recognizable themes of the cars. A large blue rear wing is attached to the rear, with a blue Toyo Tire sticker found affixed above the film’s corresponding Florida license plate.

Assuming you didn’t star in the Fast and Furious franchise and therefore couldn’t afford the $5 million car that sold out, $50 for a long legged example complete with moving pistons seems as close as we can all get. Bolide.
