A model for a LEGO version of the Pioneer CDJ 2000 Nexus has been submitted to the LEGO ideas platform.
The design contains 2628 pieces with many playable assets such as an adjustable tempo fader and a USB stick that can be placed inside and ejected with an adjacent button.
The decks also come with two replaceable LED panels, one works with a knob to select from a list of “tracks”, while the other can be controlled by the jog wheel to move through the waveforms of a song. It also comes with a CD that can be placed in and ejected.
The design was submitted to the platform by Hungarian designer Tamás Borján last month. The website allows users to submit ideas for potential LEGO products which, if accepted, would be turned into commercial products that give the original designer 1% of the royalties.
If the design for the LEGO CDJ’s receives 10,000 supporters, it very likely could be made into an official LEGO set. At the time of writing, the model has 3,327 supporters, with 574 days left to reach its target.
According to the caption, the designer wrote that “This new-age classic piece plays a significant role in the life of clubs and parties. DJs are playing the best music on this, mixing the songs together with great precision.”
