Last chance to buy LEGO Creator Expert 10252 Volkswagen Beetle

It may be your last chance to buy LEGO Creator Expert 10252 Volkswagen Beetle, as it’s reportedly reached the end of its shelf life.

According to information published by Promobricks, the 2016 set is no longer in production. That means that once the current batch of sets has sold out, it will be gone for good.

The 1,167-piece set launched more than four years ago, so it’s no surprise that the LEGO Group is apparently calling time on the model. In fact, its retirement has been on the cards for a while, as it appeared on the original list of sets due to retire in 2020.

You can check out our review of 10252 Volkswagen Beetle here. We concluded that it offers “a satisfying and challenging build experience, and a beautiful finished model that truly captures the car’s unique design.” That makes it a set worth picking up, particularly if you still need to complete your Creator Expert car collection.

The Beetle isn’t the only set you should prioritise right now. In fact, dozens of LEGO sets are due to leave shelves by the end of this year, including 10260 Downtown Diner, 10256 Taj Mahal and 75159 Death Star. Click here to see the full list as of October.

It’s also a great time to buy, as is currently offering double VIP points site-wide until October 20. That’s equivalent to 10% cashback, rather than the usual 5%.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
