Lego VW is very popular, not only among children, but also among adults. Lego responded to that and created a Lego VW Bus and Lego VW Beetle set. This was of course warmly welcomed by many Volkswagen fanatics. The aircooled scene counts millions of people around the globe, so Lego was sure about their sales market and revenue.
In this article we will cover the Creator Volkswagen T1 Camper Van set 10220 and the Creator Volkswagen Beetle set 10252, two of their most popular products.
Lego VW Bus set 10220
Lego had a lot of attention to detail when designing this set. Every iconic feature is here. On the outside of the Lego VW Camper, the terrific detailing includes ‘V’ shape three-way color split at the front, rounded roof and window frames, opening split safari windows, opening doors, iconic pop-up roof with textile curtain surround, a roof rack, rear side air intake vents and lots more!
The detailing is equally impressive on the inside, from the authentic VW Camper air-cooled flat four-cylinder boxer engine, front cabin bench seat, gear stick, angled dashboard, and iconic spherical speedometer, to custom LEGO® features like folding rear bench seat, folding dinette table, closet with mirror and even a painting!
The Lego VW Bus set 10220 contains 1332 pieces and is suitable for children over 16 years old. The Camper Van is over 5” high (14cm) and 11” long (30cm).
This is an EXPERT level Lego set. The pieces are somewhat pre-sorted in its own bags and just keeping them separately is all you need to do.
