Coming in August, car enthusiasts and LEGO master builders alike will be checking out the detail that went into LEGO’s latest creation. This 1960’s Volkswagen Beetle Creator set has 1,167 pieces and measures 11-inches high, 10-inches long, and four inches wide.

Also in LEGO news, the LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens E3 Trailer showed fans highlights in signature LEGO style. The game comes out June 28. More details and videos:

The roof lifts off to reveal a beige brick interior with movable seats, and the doors, hood, and trunk all open. There’s even a spare tire in the trunk . The set comes with decals that give the builder a choice of four license plates, including a surfer-appropriate California design and one from Wolfsburg, Germany, where the car was born.

It also features a blue color scheme, curved fenders, a flat windshield, the VW logo, and an authentic 4-cylinder air-cooled engine and fuel tank. This model has been designed to provide a “challenging and rewarding building experience with a touch of nostalgia.”

The set will fetch about $100 in the US when it hits stores in August.
