Can’t wait for the Tesla Cybertruck to arrive? Make your own…
Long-awaited electric pick-up truck now comes in presumably un-bulletproof brick kit form
“Expected to go on sale late in 2021”, we said when the Tesla Cybertruck first graced this funny little world we call ‘cars’.
Well, with roughly half your advent calendar’s doors already open, we’d say it’s fair to claim we’ve landed slap bang late in 2021 with still no madcap, under-3.0secs-to-60mph electric pick-up truck on sale.
Happily there’s a solution, and it might just help answer some of your other mid-advent calendar conundrums. Namely ‘what present should I buy them?’ or ‘what should I ask Santa for?'.
You’ll have to be especially generous if this Mega Tesla Cybertruck solves the former question. Or have behaved extremely well if the big man brings you one if it fulfil the latter. For this is a £269.99 kit, albeit one in a mahoosive box with 3,283 pieces and many easter eggs contained within, not least adjustable suspension, a functional load cover and some neat little Tesla references.

You might also have noted it’s not the work of another reasonably famous brick company, rather Mega.
Mega is owned by Mattel, the same guys behind Matchbox and Hot Wheels toys. But then nothing about Elon Musk’s car company fits with convention, so licencing rights landing outside of Denmark kinda makes sense. And the kit does look seriously impressive. Not to mention actually purchasable right now. Aka late in 2021…
