Creator Volkswagen Beetle 10252 – Set Preview

Lego 10252 Volkswagen Beetle Set 2016

We find it a bit odd that Adolf Hitler’s car for the people became such a hit with peace loving hippy surfer types, but nevertheless if there’s one brand synonymous with surf culture, it’s Volkswagen. LEGO’s partnership with Volkswagen has been a fruitful one too, with the excellent T1 Camper and their previous 10187 Beetle being highlights of their licensing programme.

LEGO had decided to continue this affinity with Volkswagen with their newest Creator release, this superb surf-ready 1960s Beetle. Aimed at ages 16+ 10252 contains 1,167 pieces, including a printed VW logo brick, new fender parts and a new windshield, and features a detailed flat-4 engine, interior, surfboard and cool-box.

We expect the 10252 Volkswagen Beetle set to cost around $100/£70 when it reaches stores in August, and it looks like a sure fire hit!

    Wow,
    how cool is that! I really like it and will definitely buy it as a partner for my Camper.

    There seem to be a few new parts in there, too. The matching hinge partner for the rather new “holder with a hole” looks extremely interesting. And there are new colours for the 1×1 “horseshoe” tile, as well.

    I’m in, who else? 🙂

        At the prices that I’ve seen quoted, this would make a great blue parts pack, on top of being a very nice Creator Set.
