Herbie
I love Herbie, so I did almost the same thing, I did with Mini Cooper and build a Herbie LEGO Beetle, and a Scarlett version as well

Another Great Creator Vehicle
Back in June, one of the employee at the Lego store informed me that this was coming out soon. Then some time later, I saw that this was coming soon on August 1st. Ever since, I kept my eye on it and BOOM! it was on sale for VIP members. I picked this up right away and built this in no-time-flat... well maybe 3~4 hours while watching some TV.

This was a simple build. All the bags were numbered #1~#3. It included some brand new pieces that I have never seen like the wheel arches. Lego did a great job improving the old VW Beetle set with this one. Awesome techniques were used to create the body curves and functional hood/trunk areas. It was definitely a great addition to my Lego vehicle collection.

Only thing I still don't like are the stickers, although this set didn't have many. Specially the window ones. Once you put them on, you better hope you don't make a mistake like putting them on slightly oblique. Instruction booklet was bent and the edge where the pages were glued were wrinkled. With my OCD, things like that bothers me so, please, don't mind me LOL. Even with that said, the set was well worth it.

Great job Lego. Keep 'em coming! (Can we get a smaller Porsche GT3RS? *wink*)

Great - But It simply lacks something..
It's a cool model. The surfer vibe idea and attention to detail is lovely but I simply can't stop wondering how good this model could have looked if the grey parts would actually have the authentic chrome looking finish. It's something Lego did in the past and where I already wondered with the James Bond Aston Martin why it has to be grey over an authetic silver.

Challenging
This is the third vehicle I have completed. I had a couple of senior moments when putting it together. The spare tire gave me some issues as I did not realize that the wheels, not tires, were different sizes. The spare tire did not fit and I took apart the whole front end of the VW as I thought I had made a mistake. Half way through rebuilding when I discovered that the wheel was a different size. lol. All in all it was a fun build and challenged this old brain at times! Which, for me, is part of the reason I love these Legos...to keep my senior brain active!
This is a quality product and I would recommend it!

Amazing!
This Lego set is one of the best! I bought it when it was for VIP's only. I love this Lego set! When my mom came home I showed her my collection. My Mom was like wow! I enjoyed building it a lot! This set was very easy for me to build. I think I might get the Porsche next. I love Lego!

The Pros and Cons of the Beetle
The Volkswagen Beetle is a set that offers some positives and negatives in my view. So I'll share my thoughts on the set:
PROS:
-Great detail, I love the color of the Beetle and the design of the inside and engine. The surfboard. beach towel and cooler have very realistic detail as well.
-The build is challenging, which I enjoyed; if you enjoy challenges, you will enjoy building this as well.
-Great display piece
-Has over 1100 pieces
CONS:
-The surfboard was a pain trying to get the pieces to fit together, the white and green elements did not cooperate.
-The build is VERY fragile, every time I try picking it up, it wants to break apart. The roof will rip off chunks of the build as well.
-The Beetle did require stickers, and personally I like printed elements better.
-When I ordered the set, it was damaged.
Overall, it's a very detailed, display piece, but it cannot be played with. It's a challenging build, but at times was very frustrating.

20 year wait
It all started between that weird period between Christmas and New Year, when your not really sure what to do, we planned a shopping trip to Center MK for the day.
After some lunch and a little window shopping we popped in to the Lego store to spend some of that Christmas money.
I walked through the door and looking at the sets and did my normal "yeah that's nice, yeah one day darling, well you'll have to see for your birthday!"
Then I see it, as the crowd seperated through a little window I see the distinctive shape of the VW Beetle. My eyes were glued to it, I push women and child out of the way to get closer. After about 5 minutes of trying to explain to my partner how cool this is she said "why don't you get it, you love helping the kids with theirs". "Don't be silly I'm 34 I can't buy Lego for myself" "why not?" she replied, it of seemed like forever but over in second as the adult part of my brain and the child side were in a fight to the death. Then the excitement really started to build as I instinctively grabbed the box marched to the till and stood there patently waiting to be served, leg tapping and a little impatient bobbing up and down like I really need to go to the toilet. Proudly in my VW jacket.
I gave the young lady the set with a beaming smile, I'm sure she could sense my excitement "would you like a bag sir?" (she could of said young man and i wouldnt of noticed) "No thank you" (the adult part of my brain and to step in after losing the last round, after all the contents are all ready in there own form of a carrier!).
So after finally buying a Lego set for myself after 20 years of being a grown up, I started with this set.
I was walking around the shopping centre like a child carrying my big box of Lego, making sure people didnt get too close, eagled eyed for that potential theif.
I couldn't wait to get home. The drive seemed to take forever every Sunday driver, every slow pony pulling out in front of you or not pulling out in the case of junctions.
1 hour 10 minutes later we arrived home. All the normal rules and procedures which I normally sound like a Sergeant Major "shoes off, put them away!" "Coats off, hang them up" all forgotten (the kids where in shock, but this gave me the advantage of the prime space on the dining room table).
I opened the box (coat still on) to find Lego has changed and for the better. I used to open a box and have one big bag of bricks, studs and any special pieces fall everywhere and invariably loose some under the fridge!
However now neatly numbered bags nice one I thought, but the greatest surprise is the handy tool for fixing any errors, about time I thought I've swallowed a couple one bricks and studs in my time, perfect I thought.
So I started to build.
I won't go in to the details of how I did it, after all you only follow the instructions, but five hours later I stepped back and admired my genius, I am a Lego builder again.
What a great set to start with and now as I write this review (my first as you can probably tell!) I'm looking at my next conquest the VW T1 Camper Van.
I'm hooked... :)
