    Another Great Creator Vehicle
    I would recommend this to a friend!
    Purchased for: Self
    Back in June, one of the employee at the Lego store informed me that this was coming out soon. Then some time later, I saw that this was coming soon on August 1st. Ever since, I kept my eye on it and BOOM! it was on sale for VIP members. I picked this up right away and built this in no-time-flat... well maybe 3~4 hours while watching some TV. This was a simple build. All the bags were numbered #1~#3. It included some brand new pieces that I have never seen like the wheel arches. Lego did a great job improving the old VW Beetle set with this one. Awesome techniques were used to create the body curves and functional hood/trunk areas. It was definitely a great addition to my Lego vehicle collection. Only thing I still don't like are the stickers, although this set didn't have many. Specially the window ones. Once you put them on, you better hope you don't make a mistake like putting them on slightly oblique. Instruction booklet was bent and the edge where the pages were glued were wrinkled. With my OCD, things like that bothers me so, please, don't mind me LOL. Even with that said, the set was well worth it. Great job Lego. Keep 'em coming! (Can we get a smaller Porsche GT3RS? *wink*)

    I love Herbie, so I did almost the same thing, I did with Mini Cooper and build a Herbie LEGO Beetle, and a Scarlett version as well

    The Lego Beetle is a must have for any Lego collector. At £69.99 it's got great value for money (unlike other sets *cough* new Death Star *cough*) and also has great play value, being able to hold at least 4 minifigures with ease. It's brick built design and attention to detail provides a great building experience, with very little repetition, it's a truly enjoyable set to build, and an equally great set for display or play. There's also some customization options, such as different number plates to choose from, as well as some stickers that can go on either the bumper, or windows, and if you don't like stickers, they don't really detract from the look if you decide to leave them off. It's impressively accurate to the original, Lego went as far as to create new pieces for this set, which really help capture the feel of the ever popular, and very familiar design of the Volkswagen Beetle. My only gripes are with the surfboard and beach mat. This is only a tiny nitpick, but I'll include it anyway. The beach mat has nothing to hold it, so when it's rolled up, no matter how hard you try, it'll always unroll slightly in the back of the car, leaving it a little untidy. The other, slightly bigger gripe, is with the way the surfboard is held onto the roof, whereas the cooler box next to it is held on by jumper studs, the surfboard is simply held on by 2 rubber pieces pushing it against a rail, this means that it is quite difficult to get to sit flat, and can also come loose during play. Overall, I can't recommend this set enough. Pros: Great brick built design. Amazing attention to detail Little repetition New pieces Accurate to real life model Offers some levels of customization Great play value Relatively low price Cons: Beach mat can unroll slightly Surfboard has nothing to hold it on properly

    This Lego set is one of the best! I bought it when it was for VIP's only. I love this Lego set! When my mom came home I showed her my collection. My Mom was like wow! I enjoyed building it a lot! This set was very easy for me to build. I think I might get the Porsche next. I love Lego!
