Earlier this month we reported about LEGO’s latest Creator Expert model – a Harley-Davidson Fat Boy – which will be available at LEGO stores from August 1st. You can buy it here in Dubai at LEGO’s official store in the Dubai Mall.
LEGO Dubai has collaborated with Harley-Davidson UAE and will be displaying an actual Fat Boy at its shop. This is an interesting move as people will be able to see both the real model and the LEGO model at one place. It will make them realise how beautifully LEGO has captured all the minor details with finishes, surfaces, and design elements crafted to replicate the full-size Harley-Davidson Fat Boy.
The best thing about the LEGO models is that not only they are very similar to the original items but they also feature some functional/movable parts. For example, in the Fat Boy model, you can spin the rear tyre to see the Milwaukee-Eight engine with moving pistons and dual exhaust pipes, spring to life. You can turn the handlebar, move the gear shift and brake levers, and flip down the motorcycle’s kickstand for easy parking.
The finished model measures over 7 inches (20 cm) high, 7 inches (18 cm) wide and 12 inches (33 cm) long. It features 1,023 pieces with solid-disc wheels, teardrop fuel tank, integrated speedometer, and dual exhaust pipes. Finished with an authentic dark red and black colour scheme with Harley-Davidson logos on each side reflective of the 2019 Fat Boy motorcycle’s Wicked Red paint scheme, it’s a perfect display centrepiece for any home, office, or anywhere to channel the inspiration to ride.
We are definitely getting one for our office. Are you?
