Full-Size Volkswagen Camper With Retro Interior Recreated Using 400,000 LEGO

As if Volkswagens weren’t adorable enough we now have one made of 400,000 LEGO!

The Volkswagen Type 2 Kombi is an iconic favorite among those who appreciate the style and sense of nostalgia it brings them every time they see one.

Type 2 serves as the poster child for the road trip and festival culture prominent in the United States in the 1950s and 1960s. The piece – turned into a LEGO dream by Rene Hoffmeister and Pascal Lenhardbuilt – is equipped with a steel frame weighing in at 1,542 pounds.

While the LEGO Volkswagen is admirable, it cannot drive — at least not yet. Maybe another visionary will make that possible in the near future.

If you think this is crazy make sure you check out this insane LEGO recreation of The Battle of Helms Deep from Lord of The Rings!
