Can you actually say you’ve got penetrated popular culture if you do not have your personal Lego set? Regardless of Lego providing dozens, if not tons of, of automotive-themed units over time, not a one has been a Tesla. That might change thanks to 1 grownup fan of Lego (generally known as AFOLs) who submitted an incredible Tesla Supercharger Station set of his personal creation to the Lego Concepts platform. The set consists of three superchargers, 4 automobiles (a mannequin Y, Cybertruck, and two Mannequin Ss), two minifigs, and a Tesla Retailer the place the automobiles are bought and serviced.
Lego Ideas is how common individuals get their “my very own creations” (MOCs) became official units. The platform lets anybody add an authentic 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 House (21318), and Globe (21332).
It is not simple for an Concepts submission to achieve manufacturing even when it does garner 10,000 votes. You may discover the three examples above are common objects that do not require licensing to be developed and bought by Lego. These sorts of units typically have a neater time getting by way of all of Lego’s hoops. That stated, some units that do require licensing get authorised 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 prior to now.
The Supercharger Station set was created by Concepts consumer Airbricks95, whose actual title is Aurelien French. In keeping with his Ideas profile web page, he lives in France and he is been constructing Lego MOCs for 15 years. As you possibly can see on his profile, he’s pretty prolific and his work is mostly of top of the range.
His Tesla-themed set, although, is his hottest, having simply handed his Springfield Elementary School from The Simpsons set in votes with 2,685 to 2,614. Sure, French’s Tesla set nonetheless has an extended technique to go to achieve 10,000 votes, however the sort of publicity ought to assist. To be able to vote you may have to join a Lego Concepts account. I already had one, so my vote’s in.
