And speaking of cars… A Volkswagen fan site has a press release from LEGO announcing that the classic Beetle will be released as a set in mid-2008:
Now, there’s some history to this set, as you can see by reading the press release. Here’s a rundown of previous coverage here on The Brothers Brick:
- Back in October 2006, the LEGO Ambassadors asked fans what cars we’d like to see as sets. You can read the discussion in comments on the old blog. Note that the VW Beetle was a common request.
- In January of 2007, LEGO showed off three prototype cars at a fan event in Frechen, Germany, and fans could vote on which of the three they wanted as a set. One of the cars was the VW Beetle.
