Coming on April 1, LEGO will be having a promotion for the LEGO Creator Mini Volkswagen Beetle (40252) which is a smaller version of the Volkswagen Beetle (10252) released last year. This set will be available with purchases of $50 or more, while supplies last, from April 1-15. Designed by long-time LEGO designer, Mel Caddick, the 141 piece set looks to be another great set by her. The contents of the box include two unnumbered bags, the instructions, and a small sticker sheet.
The front of the box has the same background as the larger Beetle to give it a consistant look considering they’re both the same vehicle. The back just shows another angle of the set.
The build of the Volkswagen Beetle is very simple as it pretty much is just stacking bricks, as these smaller sets are usually like. There isn’t any difficult building techniques used so the build time should be relatively short.
As I mentioned before, there are stickers with the set and as an official licensed product of Volkswagen, there is a sticker of the Volkwagen logo right in the front. For the license plate stickers, its spells out M31 OD4 which spells out Melody. If you’re not familar with license plate stickers, the designers usually throw in Easter eggs that relates to them and in this case, the designer’s first name.
The rest of the stickers are for the side rear windows, the tail lights, and for the surfboard which again has the same color scheme as the larger version. And of course, you also have the red cooler on top of the rack as well.
Overall, the LEGO Creator Mini Volkswagen Beetle (40252) is a really nice little promotional set. The propotions on it are on point and looks great next to its older brother. All the parts aren’t exclusive however a majority of the dark azure blue parts are still pretty rare.
Again, you can get this set starting this Saturday, April 1 with purchases of $50 or more, while supplies last, and will go on until April 15.
