For those unfamiliar with LEGO’s Ideas site, the recipe is really quite simple- build something awesome, post it, and see how many supporters it can get in a set period of time. If the creation is able to hit 10,000, it’ll be officially reviewed by LEGO. In the event they give it a green light, customers will then be able to purchase the item in stores.
This certainly isn’t the first Volkswagen Transporter to be featured on the site, and it won’t be the last either. But what does make it interesting is the inclusion of surfboards, bumper-mounted fog lights, an aggressive ride height and wood-look bed. In a nutshell, the model is able to capture the essence of the T2 scene without the need for elaborate props or additions.
