LEGO Creator Mini Volkswagen Beetle (40252)

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.
