A great new addition to the LEGO Group’s 18+ range of vehicles – at least if you’re happy just to pop it on a shelf – the set is perfect for builders who love to pay attention to detail. With 2,207 parts, this LEGO for Adults camper comes in at 35cm long, 14cm wide and 15cm tall, with a price tag of £149.99 / $179.99 / €159.99.
10279 Volkswagen T2 Camper Van is also perfect if you’re a fan of these classic campers. Perhaps you’re reminiscing about holidays of yesteryear, or dreaming of a road trip with your surfboard strapped to the roof. Either way, you’ll be able to live out those fantasies by assembling a LEGO version of the second-generation camper.
That said, you don’t even need to be a veteran Volkswagen fanatic to appreciate the authentic design and features included in 10279 Volkswagen T2 Camper Van, such as the pop-up roof, folding chairs, textile curtains and, of course, surfboard.
This is a successor to the popular 10220 Volkswagen T1 Camper Van, which remained on shelves for nearly a decade, and there are lots of great improvements. One key change is to the blue and white colour scheme, along with the iconic spare tyre at the front.
Whether you’re most impressed by the fully-equipped interior with its stove, fridge, sink and opening cabinets or the working steering wheel, the set comes with a sticker sheet so you can truly customise your vintage van.
