UPDATED August 27, 2013!

- All new build! Check out the new play features and more realistic details! Thanks to everyone who supported this project so far! I appreciate it!!

The Project: The gourmet food truck scene has exploded in recent years, so why not let our Lego minifigures get in on the action? This truck is based on a typical American food truck, and because it's Lego, it can be customized in an infinite number of ways, just like real food trucks. There can be variations in color, interior details, and stickers.

About the Build: The design is based on one of the first new age food trucks in Los Angeles, the Kogi truck, which makes Korean barbecue tacos and burritos (delicious!), but it's really basic enough to be any food truck. It was designed to fit in with official Lego City vehicles, thus the 6-wide build and use of mudguards. The build itself is a bit more complicated than a typical City set, but not any more difficult than say, a Winter Village set and could easily fit under the new Creator Expert line.

Features of this build: - Detailed serving counter with snacks, drinks and water/coffee dispensers! - Detailed kitchen with sink, prep area, flat grill, and storage space. - Characteristic food truck details, such as the skylights and vents. - Easy to remove roof allows access to the interior! - Swing out the side wall to turn this truck into a mini playset! - Seats one driver.

Progress Report: February 17, 2012: 100 Supporters! Yay! December 6, 2012: 500 Supporters! September 2, 2013: 1000 Supporters! Thank you all who have supported the project so far!

LEGO CUUSOO Staff Pick of the Day for August 22, 2012! (@LEGO_CUUSOO)

What's not to love about this little gourmet food truck? Now Minifigures can enjoy the delights of on-the-go Korean BBQ tacos, specialty hot dogs, fired chicken and waffles, and homemade ice cream (although maybe not all together). The customization on this model is endless!


Good luck as you drive toward 10,000 supporters!
