LEGO Shop@Home sent out assets and an official press release for their upcoming exclusive, 10220 Volkswagen T1 Camper Van. It looks like a great companion set to their 10187 Volkswagen Beetle set from a few years back, even if they're not the same scale. Priced at $99.99, the T1 has 1,322 pieces and will be available for sale beginning of October 2011. Oh, how I wish it was available this Tuesday. Full press release below after more pictures and their making-of video.

I've always been fond of the aesthetics of the VW bus (but not its muffler), and Lego seems to have captured it pretty perfectly. This set oozes charm.

Major buzzkill, but no surprise here. I redact my previous enthusiasm and substitute it for more tempered excitement. This is no longer an instant purchase for me. Oh well.

The piece to price ratio is still decent. Did $20 really change this set from an instant purchase for you?

Yep, $20 changed my perception of the set. You're right, $120 isn't terrible, but I'm not going to rush in purchasing it. It killed my excitement enough I'm not going to order it the first opportunity I get, which for $100, I would have done. I'm eventually going to shove a fistful of electronic currency at Lego, in any case.
