Mattel Creations Tesla Cybertruck
Have you built your Tesla MEGA Cybertruck yet?
OK, we know ... You just can't wait for your own (real) Tesla Cybertruck ... Ya gotta have one NOW! Well, while you wait, you should build your own, at 1/12 the size (and an even better price-ratio)

Well friends, and just in case you've not yet noticed it, those Hot Wheels/Barbie/UNO ultra-clever, laid-back, hipsters-dropouts over in El Segundo, California (yeah, yeah, we love ya) ... have created the next closest thing to that silly slab-sided sybarite's dream car and are dangling it right in front of your nose, right now.
Of course their hope is that this little muskrat will stave of at least some of the worst of those pesky and annoying delirium tremens being brought on by your jonesing so long and so hard for a real T-truck.
From any front porch in this great country of ours this mini-bolide looks a real whole lot like one those very expensive build-kits from Lego - have you seen their almost life-size Titanic kit?
Mattel Creation's MEGA Tesla Cybertruck features the real prototype's signature "spider-cracked" atom bomb-proof side glass from the original live unveiling. This big sucker (1/12-scale!) seems darn well competitively priced at $250 and it's a lead-pipe cinch/sure thing that it will drive your favorite neighbors (at least the ones who appreciate scale models) absolutely stark raving mad with blinding envy. It already has me fuming...
Check out the "toy" at Mattel Creations and compare to the "real deal" at Tesla.
