Introducing the LEGO 10220 Volkswagen Camper Van T1. This spectacular set includes a total of 1332 pieces and was made to show case the 1962 version of the original Camper Van. This enormous set is scheduled to be released October of 2011. The replica of the classic has a red and white exterior as well as the Volkswagen symbol on the front of the van. This model comes complete with Safari windows and a very detailed and unique pop top.
Stepping into the van is like stepping into a spectacular time machine. The interior has a beautiful black and white checkered floor and red and orange retro styled curtains. LEGO had a pretty hard time deciding which interior to use for this model, but in the end they decided on the original Westfalia interior that was used in so many Camper Vans. Many consumers that have seen this set, have raved that it is like stepping into their grandmothers home. Many are saying that it feels homey and comfortable. The Camper Van comes complete with a table, sink, and a bench seat that transforms into a bed.
There are several accessories that are included in this set that include the following: a yellow LEGO t-shit that reads "Make LEGO Models Not War", a green wine glass that sits perfectly on the LEGO table, dishes that hang perfectly above the sink and also a lava lamp that is meant to compliment the 60's. Another interesting detail that LEGO included, is a painting that hangs on the back wall of the van. The painting is of a surf board stuck in the sand with a sun set in the background. The most interesting part of this painting is that the designers initials are on the surf board itself.
When building this set, you will find that it is really quite challenging. The hardest part of the Van to build is said to be the front of it because there is so much detail and you can't help but to want to get it just right. As you make your way around the model, you will notice that it has a lot of doors and windows. LEGO wanted to make this vehicle look and feel almost exactly like the original. There are 11 windows and the classic rear door that reveals a completed LEGO engine. The engine is another challenging part of this model because it can be pretty tough to get the engine in between those small wheels.
This model is very unique because it has so much history behind it and because it attracts LEGO builders of all ages. The reason for this is because the Volkswagen Camper Van T1 is one of the most loved and known vehicles of all time. When most people look at this vehicle they think of happiness which is why so many consumers are saying that this is one of the most "fun" sets that LEGO has accomplished.
