And Finally- Lego creates VW Camper

Yearning for a Volkswagen Camper Van but can't afford the real thing? The iconic Camper Van, an icon of the sixties counter-culture and loved by hippies and surfers around the world, has been recreated as a LEGO® Exclusive model. The replica of the original 1962 VW Camper (also known as the 'Combi' or 'the hippie van') has been officially licensed by the German car manufacturer for the first time.

The model includes features like V shape colour split on the front and rounded roof. It also has an opening 'splittie' safari front window, opening doors and of course instantly recognisable pop-up roof.

Even the characteristic flat-four air-cooled VW boxer engine is squeezed in above the rear axle, exactly as in the original. Efforts have also been made to reproduce an interior that is as close to the original as possible. There’s a sink unit, a bench that folds down into a bed, a folding dinette table and an opening cupboard with a mirror.

The 10220 Volkswagen T1 Camper Van is on sale from October 1, 2011 via or LEGO Brand Retail Stores. Going by the pictures, what do you think? Feel free to comment

I'm not sure I saw these at the Lego store in Westfield Stratford City. Then again it was the first day and I was easily distracted by so much going on.

They look fantastic! I can’t believe how realistic they are. Katie Leaver, London Loves Jobs
