In the official Ford fanshop cyber-Wear is offering cult model cars made of LEGO®

As a result the Ford merchandising portfolio now contains two more articles with cult potential. In the official fan shop at www.fordlifestylecollection.com, cyber-Wear is now offering two new toy car sets which will have tremendous appeal for kids of all ages. They are modelled on the Ford Mustang, the Ford F-150 Raptor and the Ford Model A Hot Rod, themselves much-loved cult vehicles, but an additional feature is that these new, child-friendly models are by LEGO® and, as a result, sure to become classic toys! Thanks to its legendary building blocks the Danish company of the same name has become the world's biggest toy manufacturer – LEGO® has long been an integral part of every happy childhood, and has even made a successful return to childless households. In combination with the theme of 'classic American dream cars', cyber-Wear has created two perfectly designed model vehicle sets which will make the eyes of grown-up hobby builders, Ford fans and LEGO® collectors light up with delight!
When it was first launched in 1964 the Ford Mustang registered sales of 22,000 in a single day. By the end of its first year Ford had sold just under 681,000 Mustangs, setting an American record. This highly successful start launched the Pony Car class, with its progenitor enjoying tremendous popularity to the present day. The LEGO® Speed Champions Ford Mustang GT comes ready to assemble in a set with a toy racing driver in an outfit with Ford branding, a time chart, a wrench, two sets of replaceable wheel trims – and of course the familiar classy styling!
For more than three decades the Ford F-150 has been leading the sales statistics in the USA. In 60 years covering 13 generations this legendary pickup has sold more than 30 million times. Among other features it is highly popular because of its load-bearing and towing capacity. It is therefore appropriate that the LEGO® Speed Champions Ford F-150 Raptor set also includes a trailer with what is probably Ford's most popular vintage racing car ever – a Model A Hot Rod. The LEGO® set also includes a combined scene containing a racing car workshop, the victory podium, the starting lights and four mini figures.
These perfect toys for boys mean that it's time to step on the gas - not just on the way to the LEGO® Speed Champions Race, but also to make sure of your purchase from the webshop at www.fordlifestylecollection.com. With both LEGO® x Ford sets their future appearance on eBay and spectacular collector's prices are just as assured as the fastest lap of the racing circuit!
