In a Saturday live stream on YouTube, Tesla Owners Online unboxed and documented their initial impressions of the MEGA X Tesla Cybertruck set.

MEGA is a Canadian toy company owned by Mattel that is known for making the popular LEGO-like MEGA Bloks.

After the idea of a LEGO Tesla Cybertruck was rejected by the LEGO Review Board last year, MEGA Bloks launched their own version in October, just in time for the holidays. The MEGA X Tesla Cybertruck consists of 3,283 pieces and is ‘LEGO-compatible’.

The toymaker says the set features details “like the sharp-angled exoskeleton, adjustable air suspension, armor glass windows, and even more Easter eggs while you put this brick model together.”

The buildable even comes with pre-shattered windows, a nod to Tesla’s original Cybertruck presentation ‘gone wrong’ (or right, for the publicity factor).

The YouTuber and Tesla owner noted that the build quality and fit and finish of the pieces don’t quite compare to LEGO, but hey, at least they went ahead and actually made one.

Check out the full unboxing and initial review from Tesla Owners Online below:

With over 3,000 pieces and an instruction manual that may as well be a coursebook, putting the MEGA Tesla Cybertruck together is going to be no small feat. Tesla Owners Online plans to either live stream the building process or give us a follow-up video with the fully-built Cybertruck.

The MEGA X Tesla Cybertruck is available to pre-order for $250 USD at Mega Brands and Mattel Creations, with the latter stating new orders will ship “on or before December 27, 2021.”

As for the full-sized, all-electric Cybertruck, Tesla is expected to start production at its Gigafactory in Texas in late 2022.
