It looks awesome like something that an AFOL would build without the studs on top. Very intricate.  :classic:

I have seen, and touched it, on the unveiling today (actually yesterday by now) and it is really a stunning model.
The only comment that I have is that the pop top has no hole in the roof.

According to the building instructions the details (vw logo, painting, t-shirt, window style, etc.) are stickers, but we couldn't tell.

It's on a different scale then the Beetle. It looks smaller, but with much more details.

I've always been a fan of VW's and I'm not a hippy. I love the older VW's like the van here and can't wait to get my hands on this. I actually own a VW now and have been driving them for the past 15 years. So maybe that's why I'm so attracted to this model but really it's just such a great design. Lego really outdid themselves on this one. I would prefer a lower price tag but I can understand with this level of detail.

This really is the surprise hit of the year for me.  As I've said before, when I first saw pics of it (prelims of course), I wasn't too thrilled and just passed it off as "meh".  After seeing the video when it was first leaked a few weeks ago, the set blew me away and became a must have.  I haven't felt this giddy looking at all the details in a set for a long time!  I love it!

Good sweet Lordy that interior is pretty!

This looks like a winner of a set, not in my budget or style, but very nice indeed.

I love my VDubs so this is a must buy set for me however I prefer my busses a bit closer to the ground so a bit of jiggery pokery in the suspension department will hopefully have it sitting like this-

Infact I may even buy two and make a replica of that one ^^^!!! :wub:

The curtains in the windows aren't stickers. You can see how they swing back and forth when he opens the doors in the video. They are the same type of fabric used for making minfigure capes, but in a plaid pattern.

The interior details are what elevates this set to something very special. There is so much functionality for what is essentially a display model. It seems very sturdy as well from the way he was holding it in the video.

The price is quite reasonable when you consider how this is a licensed product.

[offtopic]That's a really nice Vdub! Luckily you don't live in the Netherlands, with such a low riding experience you would loose the front bumper, oil carter or other parts every 100 meters due to all those speed bumps we have here... :angry: [/offtopic]

I don't think making the set into such a lowrider will be very easy, you will probably have to redesign/rebuild the entire structure to get the wheels in thát low.  :classic:

$100 if you get it in the USA.  It's $130 in Canada.   :classic:

I like the interior. It seems to be more detailed than the Beetle and have about 300 less pieces.

It is a nice model, the interior is detailed and the modularity is even better.

Though I am not a fan of car models, I will buy it as the price is correct and the result is superb !

What a lovely, incredible set. Kudos to that designer!

Nor am I, but honestly, I think it would be a bit much to expect unique printed elements for this set on top of everything else we're getting for the price. This is a real winner, I think.
