LEGO Cybertruck Could Easily Be Mistaken for the Real Thing

When Tesla unveiled the funky-looking electric Cybertruck not long ago, many scratched their heads trying to figure out where the company’s designers have got the ideas for designing it. Now that we have a semi-official LEGO version of it, it all becomes clear.

Try as it might, LEGO fails to accurately render the many cars it is licensed to replicate, and for a very simple reason: cars usually use flowing, smooth lines, while LEGOs versions of them are all about tiny plastic bricks cut in sharp, straight lines.

The toymaker does comes close to replicating cars at times, but never did we see such a close resemblance between a LEGO build and an actual vehicle as the Cybertruck in the gallery above.

The idea is the brainchild of a LEGO builder that goes by the name BrickinNick, and was until January listed on the LEGO Ideas forum, gathering the votes that would prompt the company into actually making it a production run.

The project managed to reach the 10,000 votes needed to capture LEGO’s attention in no time, and has moved since into the review phase, one step closer for an actual green light that may be possible several months from now.

Conceived with a functional frunk and tailgate, opening doors, a full interior and even steering, the toy is supposed to also be accompanied by the Tesla Cyberquad ATV, “making for an incredibly fun building experience.”

BrickinNick hinted a LEGO motorization could even turn this into a truly all-electric vehicle,” although that’s probably not what we’re going to get eventually.

The finished toy, as submitted for review, is 35.6 cm (14 inches) long, 15.2 cm (6 inches) wide, and 12.7 cm (5 inches) tall. And we must say, although we’ve seen LEGO Cybertrucks before (generally made by fans), this one sure does look the best of them all.
