Elon Musk'sTesla Cybertruck debuted with much fanfare last week, but it has some issues. It's not available yet. It costs just under $40,000 for the cheapest version. Its supposedly shatterproof windows can be shattered. Perhaps you would like to go the more economical route and embrace Lego's version instead.

And you don't have to wait until 2021 to get one.

Lego Australia shared its vision for a futuristic geometric vehicle on Facebook on Tuesday. "The evolution of the truck is here. Guaranteed shatterproof," the toy company wrote.

Elon Musk confirms Tesla's 'Cyberquad' as a Cybertruck accessory

  Elon Musk confirms Tesla's 'Cyberquad' as a Cybertruck accessory Other than unveiling Tesla's new low-polygon-count pickup, Elon Musk also introduced an electric ATV at the event last night. Dubbed the Cyberquad, Musk confirmed on Twitter today that the two-person ATV will be available "first" as an option for Cybertruck buyers. At the event, the four-wheeler rode into the back of a Cybertruck as the truck's adaptive suspension leaned back for easier loading, and then the ATV plugged in for charging right there in the bed.

Lego's Cybertruck snark attack features a glowingly photographed Lego brick sitting on a four-wheeled platform. It's simple. It's cheap. You can build one for yourself.

Just don't try to pit your Lego truck against a Ford F-150 in a tug-of-war test. The plastic-brick-on-wheels can repel bare feet with ease, but it doesn't have much in the way of torque or towing capacity.

Tesla Cybertruck is like nothing else

Tesla's electric ATV should launch at the same time as the Cybertruck .
Tesla has said precious little about its Cyberquad electric ATV, but it's now sharing one of the most important details: when you can expect to get one. Elon Musk told Twitter followers that Tesla was planning to release the ATV at the same time as the Cybertruck, or late 2021. Pricing, performance and other details are still unknown, but you won't be deprived of electric off-roading if you're an early adopter. Musk also toyed with the prospect of designing an electric dirt bike for those who prefer two-wheeled adventures, although he didn't say how serious he was about the prospect. You can forget about an electric motorcycle, though.
