IT HAS never been easier to get your hands on a Harley-Davidson Fat Boy after it was revealed as the latest addition to the LEGO Creator Studio range.
A true American icon, the Fat Boy is being immortalised for a new modern generation as the newest member of the LEGO franchise and its more 'expert' (ie. Ages 12+) audience.
It certainly looks to be a faithful rendition of the real thing with Harley-Davidson working with LEGO to create a cruiser that ‘captures the beauty of the real-life machine with finishes, surfaces, and design elements’.
At 7 inches high, 7 inches wide and 12 inches, the LEGO Harley-Davidson Fat Boy comprises 1,023 pieces including solid-disc wheels, teardrop fuel tanks and speedometer. Better still, by spinning the rear wheel the pistons will move, while there are also moveable fear shift, brake levers and kickstand.
“Bringing this Harley-Davidson motorcycle to life in brick form is incredibly exciting,” said Mike Psiaki, Design Master at LEGO Group. “The model truly captures the iconic design, advanced engineering and attention to detail of this iconic motorcycle, offering an immersive building experience and a unique collector’s item for Harley-Davidson enthusiasts and LEGO fans of all ages.”
“It’s been exceptionally exciting for Harley-Davidson to collaborate with the LEGO Group - another brand that champions creativity and expression,” said Heather Malenshek, Chief Marketing Officer at Harley-Davidson. “Not only do we want customers to be inspired by the end result, we want them to enjoy the building process.”
“The authenticity of Harley-Davidson design comes by sweating the details from start to finish.” said Brad Richards, Vice President of Styling & Design, Harley-Davidson. “We looked at every nut and bolt on the bike, all the finishes, and every small detail. Working with the LEGO team on this project allowed us to bring that same attention to detail to a collaborative product, and to celebrate a brand that inspired the imagination and creativity of many of us at Harley-Davidson from a young age, including myself.”
The LEGO Harley-Davidson Fat Boy cruises into stores on August 1st 2019 in the United States initially at a local $99.99
