      I guess I'll be the jerk to say it, thats a T2, not a T1.

      Still pretty cool though.

      Looks like a T1 to me. I mean it is made from Lego bricks after all... can't expect it to be a 100% life-like replica.

      I'm guessing it'll be on Lego.com soon-- or I'll just have to procure it from Europe.

      I've got 3 of the Lego Ferrari and the Type 1 already -- like I need more!!

      $50 kit? Oh my, you've not price these out lately, now have you??

      A Lego Ferrari Enzo (no longer available from Lego) are running around $500. I'd expect the T2 to come in somewhere around the $150 pricepoint from Lego.

      The beetle is the T1, the Transporter/Kombi/camper is the T2.

      Don't confuse Type with T. The Splitty is a Type 2, T1.

      Beetle is Type 1. Never seen it refer to as T1.

      T1 (2, 3, 4, 5 etc) refers to the generation of Transporter.

      Based on number of LEGO pieces in this set, I'd guess the price will be more like $170 or $180.

      The general rule of thumb is 1,000 piece ~ $150.

      I've seen the "Type x" designation abbreviated as "Tx" several times, just not in official literature. I just used it as shorthand.

      Me and my son have built both Imperial Star Destroyer and Imperial Walker, which took us 2 weeks each.
      I don't remember exact number of pieces in each set, but it's .... well, quite a bit!

      They have then been pulled apart so I am looking forward to building them again some day.

      By pulled apart did you mean throw it around until it broke into pieces? Cause that's how I get my lego apart. I don't think you could EVER break a lego piece itself. I've never seen a broken one lol.

      Awesome, but I guarantee it's out of my price range. Hell, Legos are out of my price range in general.

      The only problem with that method is that you almost never get all the pieces off the floor....

      And it never fails, you'll end up walking barefoot through the house one night, and step on the most excruciatingly pointy Lego piece you could imagine!
