10220 - Volkswagen T1 Camper Van

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Sometimes it's nice when a set becomes only worth its build/play value and I can justify actually cutting seals to building one. After I fail my statistical mechanics exam tomorrow I'm gonna build a lego set for me, maybe the first since unexpected gathering broke on the scene.

At the very least, why can’t Lego retire this one and sell a different color. 

A dark green / forrest green would look good.

yeah,  I’m also deep in 10220.  Like Excite said, maybe it times to move soon for the holidays. 

Totally agree on a different color option, or introducing instructions on building the different variations of the Bus.

2020 will be the 70th anniversary of the VW bus so maybe holding another 2 years will help?

I’d rather see light blue, similar to the Beetle. Dharma Blue (from LOST)

My built one is in now yellowy-white colour and faded red. They are going to make us buy a second one as the first ones are all looking washed up now.

Haven't you heard?  They only profited about $1 billion last year. They're just squeaking by. They don't have $500 just laying around to have someone remake the instructions with some other color bricks, have a photo shoot and redo the box.  Promoting creativity is reserved for their advertising message to consumers, not their own products.

Is it worth to invest in? With all due respect to this set, but it looks like everybody has already invested money in the van! Now I can buy it at $110.

What to do?

It's a nice set, but as you said: everybody and their aunt has already multiple boxes of this in their storage. And bought for considerably less than $110. At that price of $110 it's not even good to buy for your own build. You can get it cheaper from other places, like Bricklink for example.

Thanks. That's what I thought.

I won't be surprised if some average sets become more valuable in the future, than those overrated Star Wars and Creator sets!
