Lego Volkswagen T2 camper van goes on sale August 1
- Fans of legendary Volkswagen vans, as well as those looking for something more spacious in an electric vehicle, have been eagerly awaiting the release of VW’s 2024 ID.Buzz Microbus.
- In the meantime, there’s still the idea of building this nostalgic 60s T2 motorhome kit, which will be released at Lego on August 1st.
- The kit includes over 2000 pieces and includes a wrap-around windshield, sliding door, sunroof with tent and a pair of folding chairs.
Fans of the VW Microbus – whether for its practical form, its status as a hippie icon from the ’60s and’ 70s, or its quirky personality – may already own a Lego version – the T1 Camper Van Kit (see below) , released several years ago. It is now joined by this T2 kit, representing the second generation of the van, which will be marketed on August 1. It should be a sensation among fans of the legendary Microbus. After all, they still have about two years to wait before they finally see the automaker’s ID.Buzz electric van on the market.
This set has a lot of the same combination of fun and functionality that was the hallmark of the current T2. It has functional steering, a wraparound windshield and a folding rear seat. The curtains are made of fabric. In the kitchen area, the cabinets and the fridge open, and there is a sink and a gas hob with a kettle on top. There is a retractable roof with tent. Accessory elements include folding chairs and a surfboard. The stickers are specific to the 1970s period, right down to the self-adhesive letters “LOVE”, and you can choose a German or American license plate.
When assembled the Lego T2 is 13.5 inches long, 5.5 inches wide and 6.0 inches high, a good size for an office or home office. It will cost $ 179.99 and can be ordered from Lego.com.
