Another one of my favorites – Creator Volkswagen Beetle also comes in among the best LEGOs for adults in 2016 and into 2017.

Talk about flashback to flower children and free love! The Camper Van is a VW duplicate, but scaled-down to tabletop proportions. The interior is a real treat though, with a bench seat that becomes a bed. And there is a buildable t-shirt accessory that says, “Make LEGO Models, Not War.”
