VW Beetle - anybody got it?

Postby Jabba the Taff » Sat Apr 11, 2009 5:56 am

After a surprise 100-1 win on the Grand National, I'm about this || close to buying the VW Beetle. But at the last minute I'm um-ing and ah-ing. So I'm wondering if anyone has this and if they thought it was worth it. Cheers.

I got two and I think it's worth it; Lots of dark blue, some light blue, and it's on sale at Amazon for $93.76 right now.

Cheers, you tipped the balance. It's on its way. Unfortunately, the UK Amazon doesn't carry much Lego, so it was full price. Roll on Sat morning.

I have two, one unopened (my brick 401k!) and one I've built. Love this set above ALL my others, including my SW sets. It just seems too perfect. I'm a big VW nut though, so you may get different mileage/enjoyment out of it than I did.

Just finished building it. And I have to agree with you, a fantastic set and build. Well worth the money. Thanks for the advice.

Wouldn't mind them releasing the Aston Martin model they show in the back of the instructions as well, btw.

If I ever found a great deal on one I'd get it for a friend...he's a huge VW fan.

Yeah, found out one of my friends who's into Beetles got one for Christmas and loved it, despite not loving Lego. Strange boy...
