Mack Trucks and Lego have released a new 2,595-piece Lego Technic building set of the new Mack Anthem flagship truck. The set can also be used to create a fully functional Mack LR front loader refuse model.

Mack and Lego designers began collaborating on the project in mid-2016 with a series of meetings. The Lego design team traveled to Mack's Greensboro, N.C.-based headquarters to drive the Mack Anthem and LR models on a test track, giving them first-hand experience with the trucks' scale and presence.

At 2,595 pieces, the Mack Anthem set is the fifth-largest Lego Technic set ever. Features include an interior complete with a detailed dashboard and steering wheel, sun visors, adjustable seats and bunk bed. A working driveline featuring an engine with a spinning radiator fan and moving pistons is also part of the kit. The pistons even move in the correct firing sequence for a Mack MP engine.

“This is the first time the launch of a Lego Technic set has coincided with the launch of the actual product to market,” said John Walsh, vice president of marketing, Mack Trucks. “We worked extremely hard with the Lego team to deliver a true-to-life representation of the Mack Anthem that folks everywhere will enjoy, whether they’re associated with trucking or not.”

The Lego Technic kit can be used to build detailed models of the Mack Anthem or Mack LR models.

"The Mack product design team had fun working with the Lego Group and their team, but we took this as seriously as we would any other project," said Lukas Yates, Mack chief designer – exterior.

The Lego Technic Mack Anthem set is available for purchase from the Mack Shop and the Lego online shop.
