Lego prepares a special Vw Camper

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2011

A red Lego VW camper van set that costs $120 and has over 1,300 pieces will be available starting October 1 at Lego retailers. The VW Camper Lego set is modeled after the T1 Camper from 1962, which is also known as the "Kombi." On the Lego version, we will see the "V" shape three-way color split at the front.

It will have rounded roof and window frames. It will also feature the opening "splittie" safari front window. The doors on this model re-creation can open and its roof may also pop up.

The Lego designers created the van to have three subtle curves on the front and for contouring to continue on the sides. The Lego van has parts that represent the flat-four air-cooled VW boxer engine.

It is positioned above the rear axle, similar to where it is fitted in the original. The camper’s interior even has Lego versions of a fold-down bed, a cupboard that could open, a mirror, a kitchen sink, and a lava lamp. But then, Lego hippies are not included in this set.

In a statement, Lego designer John-Henry Harris said that its “unique character and charm” make it highly admired worldwide. It has also become one of the most customizable vehicles ever produced.

Harris said that the Lego model has technical elements that fans will like. Harris said that he hopes that it will appeal to Volkswagen fans as well as to a broader audience. This set will also be available with a shirt that has this line printed on it: "Make Lego models, not war."
