As soon as we got proper pictures of this set, I knew I wanted it … and as soon as it became available, I ordered it (in the process getting some money off and a free Atlantis set).
This review is brought to you with the assistance of “cool” surfers Brad and Deborah … with Sally the Lifeguard on hand to ensure safety
Marshall Matlock wrote in to let us know of a nice little video he posted on his blog page. It shows a time lapse video of him building the 10220 Camper Van set. Over 1,800 photographs were taken and compressed down to 24 frames per second for a video that is a little over a minute and a half long. Kind of a nice way to see how the build goes if you haven’t built this set for yourself yet.
I got word yesterday that the incredible microbus set 10220 Volkswagen T1 Camper Van will go on sale today through LEGO Shop@Home for the North American market. In addition to the set seeing an early release up from October 1, Shop@Home is also offering free shipping once again now through the end of the month for US and Canada. Free shipping applies to orders of $75 or more, which shouldn’t be a problem if you’re just getting this set: 10220 is priced at $119.99.
For you European fans, you’ll have to wait four more days before you can order it. It’s scheduled to go on sale on September 27th.
I got an email from Shop@Home earlier today asking to correct a mistake they had in their press release. The actual US price for 10220 Volkswagen T1 Camper Van is $119.99, NOT $99.99 as previously reported. The pricing error is for the US price only; all other market prices are unchanged.
The Bad News: The price just went up by $20 bucks.
The Good News: It’s the same great model.
I admit, the price is a little harder to swallow but if I had to choose this or picking up the fourth Falcon, I’d easily pick the Camper Van. Besides, what else am I gonna surprise my wife with this Christmas?
Thanks to forum member Arkov for the reminder.
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.

Captain Eugene spotted the above set in the latest LEGO Collector Guide. It looks like an awesome complement to the VW Beetle (10187) released a few years ago. Weighing in at 1,332 elements, here’s hoping it’ll cost around $99. Too bad they couldn’t fit in 5 more pieces.
Thanks to Draykov for the heads up, and Captain Eugene for the discovery.
