There is a brand new vehicle on the market in the LEGO Creator line that covers a few different aspects of car-based LEGO builds. There is a really nice design to the Creator Volkswagen T2 Camper Van Lego Set 10279 that will appeal to those that love VW models and want something to add to their collection. But, the details of the van go further with moving parts that you don’t always see on this sort of machine. Finally, there are the details to the story of the vehicle that helps with creative play.
This new Creator LEGO set for adults takes fans on a detailed journey in an authentic fan.
The van itself is a very attractive take on the VW model with the classic two-tone paintwork, spare tire at the front, and some recognizable features in the lights and mirrors. But, when you open up the hood, back, and roof on this model, you get a lot more detail to take the story further. There are more than 1000 pieces in this 14’’ long vehicle. The hood opens to reveal the engine - as you get with more technical vehicle builds - and you also have moving steering. Then, when you slide open the side door, you get access to the cozy interior.
Builders will have a lot of fun crafting this living space, which is made more accessible by removing the roof. There is space for a little kitchen area, pull-out bed, and that’s about it. But, there are still plenty of details with the accessories in the kitchen, the stocked fridge, and the little fabric curtain. This space becomes even more interesting with the pop-up tent roof.
Finally, there are the extra details in the items owned by the unseen driver of this van. There are two folding chairs, which builders can set up in a nice scene alongside the van. There is also a surfboard, suggesting that this van is on a road trip to the coast. Another nice detail here is that you get some little flower stickers, in case you want to enhance the 1960s feel instead.
This Creator Expert LEGO set is a must-have for VW lovers.
There is a lot for builders to discover in this new Creator Volkswagen T2 Camper Van Lego Set 10279. With an 18+ rating and 2207 pieces, it is sure to be a great summer project that keeps on giving.
