Obligatory Orlove’d introduction :)
Heres a quick build and review of the LEGO Creator Expert VW Beetle.
All the parts the set comes with.
A box for one rubber band!
I gather the parts I need for each step then build.
Lots of steps to build the chassis.
Clever building techniques.
Beetle is really taking shape.
All done! Took me about 10 hours? or so over two days. Took my time and it was quite a fun build. Almost as fun as the Ferrari F40 set.
Side profile makes gives it a beefy look. Must be the oversized fenders.
Used California plate stickers for mine. You can choose some Euro plates too.
The beetle is not the regular blue we all know. Its more of an Azure blue, a lighter color. New round bricks make the fenders of the car. Also unique tailights!
Minifigure shields make the headlights of the bug.
Nothing like wind surfing. My Technic fig fits in the bug, but makes him look tiny.
Nice wooden look roofrack
Hard seats and a ride like stepping on LEGO
I need more than two!
My first soda can tile! The set comes with an extra. Also the beach towel is a nice addition to the set.
Roof is easily removeable to see the simplistic interior.
Tilting steering wheel, speedometer, shift stick and parking brake is hard to see.
All seats fold down.
Extra storage space!
Perfect for the beach towel.
Can also fit the ice chest on the back seat.
Gas tank and spare tire.
Detailed 4 cyl boxer engine. Some of it. One of my complaints would of been for a more full engine.
Surf board fits better on the F40 :D
The beetle is a monster!
You know what im thinking ;)
Overall the Creator Beetle is a fantastic set for the LEGO car lover, VW fan, hippies, or anyone :D
