Lego VW Camper Van (Set 10220) Time Lapse Build

Lego VW Camper vanLego sets and time lapse photography seem to go hand in hand and I have to confess I am a little in awe of those who manage to do it so well- I mean where do they find the time?

Perhaps they don’t have kids…

There is a wonderful video on Youtube at the moment covering the time lapse build of what must be 2011’s Lego set of the year, the LEGO Volkswagen T1 Camper Van (set 10220).

It is truly one of the most well designed and executed Lego sets I have ever seen (and I’m not just saying this because I own a VW).

It combines the design wonder of talented Lego and VW craftspeople to make one beautiful set of quirky nostalgic goodness.

You can read more about the Lego VW Camper Van or simply sit back and watch the video below.

Lego Volkswagen Van – (Set 10220)

Lego Volkswagon Van Pop OutsLego has officially announced another vehicle set to match the VW Beetle release of 2008, the Lego Volkswagen Van.

The model is exclusive to the Lego shop Online and is available now.

These two models are part of Lego’s Large Scale Model series, vehicle sub-theme.

I was initially blase about this set, based solely on a couple of images of the outside of the camper van and my impression of the previous set which didn’t inspire me (and I even own a blue VW beetle!).

But when I saw the level of detail inside this latest release, I knew that Lego had taken their Vehicle theme to a new level.

The design of the inside of the van took my breath away- a bed, table, lamp, painting, tiled (vinyl?) floor, curtains, drawers, shelves – It is unbelievable how much detail the designers fit inside while maintaining the integrity of the model and the detail outside!

The Lego Volkswagen Van must be in the running for Lego set of the year!

The set will be released in October. (Available Now)
