“Working with the LEGO Group was an extraordinary experience, because it brought two dreams?– the LEGO brand and Vespa?– together, which have the unlimited expressive potential that they offer their fans in common,” said Marco Lambri, Head of the Piaggio Group Design Center.
“Two outstanding brands able to span different ages, always able to reinvent themselves because they have the capacity to unite and to build in their DNA. As designers, the challenge was to have the soft shapes of Vespa coexist with the form of LEGO bricks, a challenge I believe we met with flying colors,” he added.
Meanwhile, LEGO Group senior designer, Florian Muller, stated that working with the Vespa team was an “incredible experience” and that one of his favorite parts of designing this set was being able to recreate all the small details of the original model.
We have to say, this is one of the most realistic looking LEGO sets we’ve seen in a while. The scooter looks so good, you could easily display it on a mantelpiece or somewhere that will always be within sight of your guests.
This little Vespa 125 will be available to purchase from the official LEGO website, as well as LEGO stores and other retailers globally starting on March 1st. The price is $99,99 in the U.S. and €99,99 in Europe.
