Lego Ideas is an interesting concept, which talented Lego users constructing various concepts, with the hope that they can be turned into reality – in the world of Lego! The Tesla Cybertruck itself already exists conceptually, although Tesla has yet to confirm a release date for the vehicle.
The fan program encourages enthusiasts of Lego to unleash their creativity, both by using real-world bricks, and also by using virtual building tools. Once the designs are completed, participants can submit photos of their creation to Lego and await approval, with promotion of the concept being a big part of its journey to possibly becoming a new Lego concept.
“The journey of becoming a Lego Fan designer is incredibly challenging and requires a unique brick-built concept, solid planning, a boatload of determination, as well as a healthy amount of patience,” the Lego Ideas website outlines.
Any idea for a new Lego concept requires at least 10,000 supporters before experts at the Danish company will review its legitimacy. If this review is then successful, the toy builder then collaborates with Lego designers in order to finalize the design for production.
There have been several Tesla designs previously submitted to Lego, with the electric car manufacturer proving an inspiration for many Lego fans. For example, a campaign for a Space X Falcon 9 Rocket kit has already acquired 2,7000 supporters since it was launched in 2017.
The Tesla Cybertruck is an all-electric battery-powered light commercial vehicle, which is intended to provide a sustainable energy substitute for the 6,500+ trucks that are sold every day in the US. Tesla has already announced its intention to release three separate models.
