It’s my birthday today and I was going to treat myself to this two weeks ago. My dutch pal found it cheaper in NL and bought it, and then posted it to me. It hasn’t arrived and the QR code he has is not in the system in their Mail company, nor the post office he used to send it.
Happy Birthday to me, not :(
My T1 Lego campervan arrived last night. €120 and €25 postage from the Netherlands. I could only find it for £150 in UK at beginning of January on Amazon, and it wasn’t on UK Lego website.

Thank you. The big decision is do I start it now or wait until he’s allowed to travel... eek

Is it an easy upgrade Alan? and what's the going rate
for such a kit. It would make a banging table centre piece.
I got it a few years ago. I’m sure it was eBay and not too expensive. I’ll look in my history to see if I can find the link. Just beware as they don’t always work. I bought the kit for Tilly’s Lego treehouse and it’s rubbish.
This one is a usb connection, so I hook it up to a portable phone power source.

About £15. It was pretty straightforward to add even after I completed the build. I think this was the one I got:

Direct from Lego website
£85 delivered.
I bought one myself in Oct.
Daughter bought me one for Xmas.
I emailed Lego to ask if I could get a refund.
Sent Pics of the two identical T1’s Lego sets. They refunded me one £85 and told me to keep both sets ! Bargain !!
Tried to get the bus from Holland but no one is shipping to the Uk

Is it an office? Is it a lounge? Is it a camper?

Me I went from Meccano toy models (at the age of 6), through Lego, till 5 years balsa modeling at University. So I've had it now ;-).
But perhaps I could go back to Playmobil ;-):

..., I could send them some ideas for accessories though,...:)


What a hype, no? Can you imagine how our (grand-)children soon will chase our vans?
