LEGO Creator MINI Cooper Mk VII Won't End Up On Blocks
Forget Grand Prix, LEGO is bringing us grand bricks! LEGO's upcoming Creator Series replica of the classic MINI Cooper Mk VII features everything one expects in a life-sized MINI, plus a picnic basket and bottle of wine.
Measuring 4” (11cm) high, 9” (25cm) long and 5” (14cm) wide when completed, the Brit brick block Bean machine is done up right in beautiful British Racing Green.
Authentic accents come via a white roof and wing mirrors, racing stripes, and fog lights. Pop open the hood and trunk to reveal a detailed engine and separate spare tire compartment.
The interior – remember, this is a LEGO product – is easily accessed via opening doors on either side along with a removable roof.
Detail abounds here too: the tan interior features patterned seats and a veneer-style dashboard. The steering wheel, gearshift and handbrake are all movable.
Not too shabby, almost makes you wish you were a little LEGO man on his way to a country picnic with his little LEGO gal (or vice-versa), don't it? LEGO's got you covered, brick-boy, by including a wicker picnic basket, a blanket and a bottle of wine with two glasses. Tiny LEGO ants are optional, we assume.
The 1,077-piece LEGO Creator MINI Cooper Mk VII is recommended for ages 16 and over. Priced at $119.99 per set, it's available on August 1st of 2014.
