Most helpful positive review
when i bought this set looking at the box it seemed like it would be a very straightforward build. this was not the case and i was pleasantly surprised by the complexity of the inner portions. The seats alone took almost 30 minutes due to the detail. The bonnet of the car was also surprisingly tricky to get on. Only thing i don't really like is the surf board and lunch cooler, however those are also optional to have on it.

Amazing!

This Lego set is one of the best! I bought it when it was for VIP's only. I love this Lego set! When my mom came home I showed her my collection. My Mom was like wow! I enjoyed building it a lot! This set was very easy for me to build. I think I might get the Porsche next. I love Lego!

A really great set

I bought it when I was in vacation in legoland last week. At the moment I saw the box, I knew I would buy it. When I got back home, I started building it. It is so much fun, especially doing it with my daughter together. She has lots of sets in friend series and started her first set when she was around 2 years old.

Every part is well produced. All the bags were labeled in number 1, 2, and 3. Each component of the car is well designed and brings lots of fun to myself and my daughter. She has been playing it with some minifigures for two days.

There were two things I had while I was building it. First, the rubber string or timing belt of the engine. It doesnt drive the parts when I rotate one of them. It would be much better and playable if the engine could be more complex.

Second thing is for some reason, one of the grey roof tile is missing. I checked every bag and my work table and could not find it. I eventually used one of the my daughter's spare rood tiles to fill it in.

Most fun build to date!

I really wanted to get the original Beetle that Lego produced, but kept on putting it off because it proved to be too expensive on the used market. So when I saw this was being released, I jumped at it.

The Pieces:

The first thing that struck me about this model is the amount of new pieces in it. As I'm sure most AFOL's do, I have a pretty good idea, with every set I buy, how many pieces are new to me; either in just a new colour, or a new piece all together. The amount of dark blue azure pieces is incredible, and makes this set fun from a "Hey! I don't have THAT piece!" point of view. I would have liked to see more printed elements and less stickers, but that's a pretty small gripe.

The Build:

The instructions and numbered bags were all pretty standard. I noticed that the pages of the book felt much thinner than usual. Maybe a weird thing to notice, but I found myself having to be a bit careful not to rip the pages. During the build itself I found myself being surprised many times with the building techniques used. This model is full of clever SNOT (Studs Not On Top) techniques, and many keys areas of the model have pieces in three different directions. The way that the back rest on the back seat goes together is something I have never seen before, and was completely unaware that those pieces could fit like that.

The finished model:

When compared to the T1 Camper, it seems a bit larger in scale, but all in all it's a great addition to the collection. All the moving bits work very well, and the surfboard, picnic basket, and the blanket make for a fun display model.

In conclusion, I'd say that this model is not only a must have for fans of Lego cars, but this is also a great model for a collector who geeks out about new pieces and clever building techniques. I'm sure I'll be finding myself pulling this one apart every so often and building it again.

This set was very enjoyable to build, and, unlike some other complex sets, is also fun to play with. It looks very accurate to real life (except for a strange triangle behind the rear window), and has some cool details, such as the VW fuel cap and front logo and a very nice beach kit, along with the features listed on the page. It also looks great in photos! All in all, it's one of my favorite sets, as this is an almost perfect fusion of two of my favorite things; the VW Beetle and Lego.

surprisingly challenging

when i bought this set looking at the box it seemed like it would be a very straightforward build. this was not the case and i was pleasantly surprised by the complexity of the inner portions. The seats alone took almost 30 minutes due to the detail. The bonnet of the car was also surprisingly tricky to get on. Only thing i don't really like is the surf board and lunch cooler, however those are also optional to have on it.

Totally worth it all

it is a great product and was totally worth every penny.Some of the pieces were hard to fit/put on the car or other pieces(probably because I'm young).I personally love the curvature, and the attention to detail its amazing!!I absolutely recommend it to anyone who wants to purchase this.and the new pieces are great!

Herbie

I love Herbie, so I did almost the same thing, I did with Mini Cooper and build a Herbie LEGO Beetle, and a Scarlett version as well

Volkswagen beetle

This lego creator set is magnificent the detail was amazing but I think the back was to straight and the hubcaps need work

Surfs up!

Overall a great build! I loved all the details and tricks to create the complex curves.

The only thing I would say is that the surfboard shape is backwards compared to real boards. If you stick the yellow parts on the other way round then it creates a much more realistic surfboard shape! See the photo for the improved surfboard.

Volkswagen Beetle 10252

I got my Lego Creator VW this christmas,so i have just build it.

It was easy to build,but some times i had to look twice in the manual,as the picture shown,was difficult to understand,where should i place the brick? So some times i had to remove parts and go to or more pages back to find out what i was doing wrong...The front part of the Beetle was the most difficult part.

But all in all i thing it was a fun set to build,and it look great,even it is a little bit boxy to be a Beetle...
