Can you actually say you have penetrated popular culture if you do not have your personal Lego set? Regardless of Lego providing dozens, if not lots of, of automotive-themed units over time, not a one has been a Tesla. That might change thanks to at least one grownup fan of Lego (generally known as AFOLs) who submitted a tremendous Tesla Supercharger Station set of his personal creation to the Lego Concepts platform. The set contains three superchargers, 4 autos (a mannequin Y, Cybertruck, and two Mannequin Ss), two minifigs, and a Tesla Retailer the place the autos are bought and serviced.
Lego Concepts is how common folks get their “my very own creations” (MOCs) become official units. The platform lets anybody add an unique set thought and the neighborhood votes on them. Any set that reaches 10,000 votes will then be thought of for manufacturing within the firm’s well-liked Concepts theme. Some well-liked previous Concepts units embrace Medieval Blacksmith (21325), Tree Home (21318), and Globe (21332).
It is not straightforward for an Concepts submission to achieve manufacturing even when it does garner 10,000 votes. You may discover the three examples above are normal objects that do not require licensing to be developed and bought by Lego. These forms of units typically have a neater time getting by means of all of Lego’s hoops. That mentioned, some units that do require licensing get accepted as a result of Lego already has a longtime relationship with that firm. Disney’s Steamboat Willie (21317) set, which is now discontinued, involves thoughts. Sadly, Lego has no formal relationship with Tesla at the moment and even rejected a Cybertruck set that reached 10,000 votes previously.
The Supercharger Station set was created by Concepts person Airbricks95, whose actual title is Aurelien French. In line with his Concepts profile web page, he lives in France and he is been constructing Lego MOCs for 15 years. As you’ll be able to see on his profile, he’s pretty prolific and his work is usually of top of the range.
His Tesla-themed set, although, is his hottest, having simply handed his Springfield Elementary College from The Simpsons set in votes with 2,685 to 2,614. Sure, French’s Tesla set nonetheless has an extended strategy to go to achieve 10,000 votes, however this kind of publicity ought to assist. With the intention to vote you’ve got to enroll in a Lego Concepts account. I already had one, so my vote’s in.
