Eurobricks in collaboration with The LEGO Group is proud to present a new Direct to Consumer (D2C) Building Contest:
Pimp My Camper!
The idea is this: take the LEGO VW Mini-Camper and customise it! Create a theme version from any LEGO Theme - Star Wars, Friends, Pirates, Castle ... whatever takes your fancy! Make a Steampunk version, or a futuristic Sci-Fi camper! Give it legs or wings instead of wheels! Keep it firmly down to earth as a Town version, but just soup it up! The possibilities are endless.
All we ask is that you keep the basic dimensions the same: the body must be no larger than the original (10 studs by 4 studs; height 13 plates) but reasonable overhang and appendages will be allowed; and the body must be recognisable as a VW Camper.
Only LEGO elements may be used, but custom decals are permitted.
You do NOT need to own the official LEGO version to build this. The instructions for the VW Mini-Camper are available to download and attached to this post.
