Hey everyone! JAYSTEPHER with Volkswagen Beetle by Lego Creator. Set number 10252. Contains 1167 pieces. Recommended building ages are 16 and up. This looks like one awesome vehicle. The box is labeled with “Expert”. This should be a challenge. In addition, looks like we get to make an ice chest and a surfboard. Nice colorful box art. What are we waiting for? Let’s crack this puppy open. I wonder if the bags are numbered in this set for easy build. Oh they are. Wow this box is packed tight. The tire was trying to hide from me.So we have several numbered bags. No! Don’t go rolling off Mr. Tire. You don’t want to ruin the TV show. Oh look we even get a Brick Separator too to help with the build. That will come in handy. We have several numbered bags, some tires, a set of instructions. I don’t like the way these were packed in the box. Very sloppy packing. Let’s make sure that’s it. I’m hoping there’s no stickers in this set. I didn’t see any.Oh there they are. So these do come with stickers. Well I was hoping those would be printed. Now let me assemble the Volkswagen Beetle. So we can take a closer look. The Volkswagen Beetle all assembled. This is a fun enjoyable set. On the left, we have the Volkswagen Beetle. On the right we have a blanket, cooler, and surfboard. Let’s take a closer look at each. On the bottom-left, we have a soft piece of fabric. It appears to be very durable. On the top-left, we have a red and white cooler. This does open up to reveal two glasses, some ice cubes, and what appears to be a can of soda. I’m not going to chance getting the can out. I probably won’t be able to put it back in again. The top does snap in place. There’s a bit of a gap. All that coldness is going to leak out of the top. Now on the right, we have a nice surfboard. It is brick-built with a fin attached to the bottom.Nice color scheme with white, green, and yellow. It appears to be very durable. Finally the Volkswagen Beetle. This is one nice build! The body color is azure. Nice solid construction. Nice headlights and front bumper. There’s suppose to be a license plate sticker that I choose not to put on. On the top, we have the Volkswagen logo. That is printed on the 1 by 1 flat tile. The front compartment does open up. This appears to be a gas tank. Not totally sure. Here’s another Volkswagen logo on another 1 by 1 round tile. We have a spare tire. The spare tire is of a smaller diameter than the standard
tires. So this will not work for a spare. It just rests inside the compartment. The doors on the vehicle do open up. Nice detail. Even the door panels are finished off. Here’s the rear. This does open up as well. We have a nice engine. This seems a bit flimsy like the back is about to break off. The driver’s side door. The top does come off. It is a bit of a challenge to remove the top without something coming a part.I would not recommend grabbing on top of the luggage rack. This is nice. It appears to be durable. There is some detail inside the Bug. We have a steering wheel that does not move. I does tilt. We have printed gauge on a 1 by 1 round flat tile. There is plenty of room. The seats do come foreword. You have to open up the door to bring the seats forward. So it is a bit tight for the interior. Nice large back seat. This does fold down. We do have some storage in the back. Really nice indeed. Before I forget, let’s put the blanket in the back. So this has to be rolled up. So we can tuck it behind the seat. Let’s hurry up and close that up before it comes unraveled.It is a nice interior. Putting the top on is simple. Just set the top on and slightly press down. This will lock in place. You can set the cooler right by the bumpers. Place the surfboard in this area. It does snap in place. You may have to slide the bumpers around to get the surfboard to lock in snug. This does roll very nice. So the VW is a quiet roller. Seems like it’s very sturdy and solid. Nice indeed. Here are the remaining spare pieces and stickers. Too bad the graphics were not printed on the bricks.It is a nice set of print work. In the middle, we have a nifty Brick Separator to help with the build. This does come in handy. On the right, we have various flat tiles, a few plates, slopes, and other various bricks which may come in handy to enhance the Volkswagen Beetle or for other Lego creations. This concludes the review for Volkswagen Beetle by Lego Creator. Set number 10252. This is one fantastic build. I highly recommend it. The only drawback with this set is stickers. Not only we had to put stickers for the license plate, but several stickers on the Bug as well as a few one the ice chest. Those pieces should have been printed.Another issue that I had is the side mirrors do tend to fall down very easily. There should have been a little more friction put into the connectors. Other than that, this will make
a fantastic display piece for any Lego collector. Thank you for watching! .
