The Lego Volkswagen T1 Camper Van
Looking back at my childhood, I had many toys which were my favorites. If any of you are like me, one of those toys would be Legos. To be quite honest, Legos are still one of my favorite toys, in fact my wife got me a Lego car kit for Christmas last year. When I was younger I was always building cars out of Legos, I didn’t have many of the car specific Lego kits so I had to create my own. Lego has actually released multiple detailed car kits which have been very impressive, but to me, none have been as impressive as their latest release, the Volkswagen T1 Camper Van.
The Volkswagen T1 Camper Van is very detailed and purely awesome. I’m not just saying it’s because I am both a Lego and Volkswagen fan, but because it is awesome! Who isn’t a fan of either VW’s or Legos? Those are hard to find people if you ask me. Anyway, the Volkswagen T1 Camper Van has so much detail that it even goes as far as having curtains, a checkered floor, and multiple moving parts. I could go on and on about all the detail of the Volkswagen T1 Camper Van, but instead, check out the pictures, the description according to Lego.com, and the YouTube video below to see how the Volkswagen T1 Camper Van is built.
This authentic camper van is a replica of the classic Volkswagen Camper Van from 1962. Every iconic feature is here! On the outside, the terrific detailing includes ‘V’ shape three-way color split at the front, rounded roof and window frames, opening ‘splittie’ safari windshield, opening doors, iconic pop-up roof with textile curtain surround, roof rack, rear side air intake vents and lots more! The detailing is equally impressive on the inside, from the authentic VW 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!
- Features 11 windows, authentic plaid-print textile curtains and wing mirror!
- Rear door opens to reveal detailed engine!
- Interior also features rear bench seat that transforms into a bed, ‘Make LEGO Models, Not War’ T-shirt and rear shelf with plant!
- Measures 11.8″ (30cm) long and 5.5″ (14cm) high!
I don’t know about you, but the Lego Volkswagen T1 Camper Van is going on my Christmas List. The price is a little steep for my taste as Lego.com list the retail price at $119, but hopefully it can be picked up for cheaper either on sale or by using a coupon.
