LEGO® Icons Classic Land Rover Defender 90 Celebrates Land Rover’s 75th Anniversary

The LEGO Group and Defender have collaborated to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Land Rover with the new LEGO® Icons Classic Land Rover Defender 90 playset. The Defender is an instantly recognizable all-terrain vehicle that has been used around the world for expeditions, adventures, humanitarian aid transport, and utilitarian missions.

The 2,336-piece set, a faithful interpretation of the original 1983 model, comes complete with all the accessories needed to create the standard road-ready Land Rover Estate model or a customized off-road version. The completed model measures 7″ tall, 7″ wide, and 13″ long and comes with functioning steering, a working suspension, and Classic Defender-accurate interior detailing. Accessories in the set include a roof rack, raised air intake, front bumper with working winch, fire extinguisher, jerry cans, toolbox, mudguards, and traction plates.

To launch the set’s release, the LEGO Group released a short film that placed a real Classic Defender in the Scottish Highlands that housed the hardest-to-reach LEGO Store in the world. The film follows adventurers Raha Moharrak, the first Saudi woman to climb Everest, and Aldo Kane, a Scottish extreme locations explorer and expert, riding their own Land Rover Defender as they race to be the first to find and build the new set.

LEGO® Icons Classic Land Rover Defender 90 set will be available in LEGO stores and online at starting April 4th, 2023, with VIP Early Access starting April 1st. The set will retail for $239.99.
