The Lego Icons Land Rover Classic Defender 90 is made from 2,366 pieces, allowing builders to choose between two different sizes.

You can choose a factory-look Defender, or a Defender custom-built to tackle the toughest terrain. Accessories include a winch, roof rack, tool box, sand ladder and snorkel intake.

Working suspension and steering were installed, and the doors and hood opened. The interior is filled with authentic Defender details, while the exterior features a classic combination of green body and white roof.

The Lego Icon Classic Defender will be available to order starting April 4, 2023. Even at £209.99, it’s much cheaper than the real thing…
