Back in December 2019, LEGO fan ‘BrickinNick’ submitted a Tesla Cybertruck idea to LEGO Ideas, the community forum where members can share ideas for possible new set builds.
Fast forward to September, and LEGO has announced the results of reviewing the project, which reached 10,000 supporters.
Sadly, LEGO says they will not be pursuing a Tesla Cybertruck set, in an updated shared on September 30, 2020.
“Our team has thoroughly considered the possibility of releasing this project as a LEGO set according to the criteria of the LEGO Review. Unfortunately the LEGO Review Board has decided that we will not produce this project as a set,” explains the company.
“Thank you to BrickinNick for the passion and creativity that went into this project, and to all of you who voted so that we would have the opportunity to consider this as a potential LEGO set. We’re sorry to deliver this disappointing news,” added the LEGO Review Board.
By reaching 10,000 supporters, the Tesla Cybertruck idea met the qualifications for review by the “LEGO Review Board”, which includes “professional set designers, product managers, marketing representatives, and other key team members,” which take a look at each qualified project.
Sad news for sure for the Tesla community—this would have been a hit.
