LEGO Goes Vintage

Destined to be much more popular with adults than kids, LEGO‘s latest Camper Van T1 is an amazing tribute to the VW Microbus. And at over 1300 pieces, this is a weekend project, not just a simple toy.

From LEGO:
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! Ages 16+. 1,322 pieces.
