    THE LEGO GROUP WELCOMES THE SUMMER OF FUN WITH THE NEW LEGO VOLKSWAGEN T2 CAMPER VAN SET

    The LEGO Group has added yet another cult vehicle to its portfolio of cars, with the reveal of the latest version of the ubiquitous LEGO Volkswagen T2 Camper Van, complete with pop-top roof with tent and ready for summer road trip adventures.

    The new LEGO Volkswagen T2 Camper Van is based on its namesake of the late 1960s and 1970s and succeeds the much-loved previous LEGO Creator Expert Volkswagen T1 Camper Van, adding many new features in the process. The new set is larger than before and distinguished by a new paint colour, a sliding door, as well as the trademark T2 wraparound Baywindow front windscreen and a new yet instantly recognisable 'face.'

    Under the hood, the set also features working steering. The LEGO Volkswagen T2 Camper Van's detailed camping interior is also fully equipped for the open road, with opening cabinets, fridge, sink and a gas stove with a teapot. Days at the beach are suitably catered for, as the set comes with a set of folding chairs and of course a surfboard, while a folding rear bench seat provides a comfortable place to stay under starry skies.

    Volkswagen Campers are of course synonymous with customisation, and the LEGO Volkswagen T2 Camper Van set is fully prepared for personalisation, with a sticker set including retro decals and a choice of German or US number plates.

    LEGO Designer Sven Franic commented: "The Volkswagen Camper is a rare breed of vehicle that commands affection like few others, and we know the LEGO version will bring a lot of fun to people who've been lucky enough to have or go camping in one, or always wanted one.

    "Though the Volkswagen Camper is no stranger to our LEGO cars collection, this latest iteration brings even more delights for LEGO builders. The meticulously kitted out interior is sure to charm seasoned campers and adventurers alike, while the eye-catching exterior with pop-up roof is a feat of engineering just like the original."

    The LEGO Volkswagen T2 Camper Van goes on sale on 1st August 2021 from LEGO stores and on LEGO.com at RRP 159.99 EUR / 179.99 USD / 149.99 GBP.

    Many thanks to Tufi Piyufi, BZPower's Ambassador, for providing us with the info on this awesome new set. I love all of the amazing features, and it's hard to go wrong with teal as a color. Let us know what you think in the Talkback!
