LEGO Creator Mini Volkswagen Beetle (40252) Building Instructions

LEGO Creator Mini VW Beetle (40252)

You may have seen an image of the LEGO Creator Mini Volkswagen Beetle (40252) floating around the internet for the past few weeks or so. The set is basically a smaller version of the Volkswagen Beetle (10252) which was released last year. The set is currently available in Hong Kong with a purchase of HK$2800 (~US$360) but word is that it will be going to Europe later this month and who knows if it will reach North America.

Luckily for everyone, LEGO has uploaded the building instructions in PDF form. I’ve also posted an images of the parts list for reference. The Mini Volkswagen Beetle does include stickers so you won’t be able to recreate the set completely but you can still build it. Some of the dark azure parts are fairly rare as well so building it in a different color is recommended too and I feel that many of you will be doing this.

    It’s already in North America, available at LEGOLAND park stores.

    Many thought the big version looked too much like a 2CV, this looks even more so to my mind. Also the beetle never had a sloping windscreen.
    Simply awful rendition.
