When Lego announced the Ultimate Collector Series Batman Tumbler, we thought that was pretty cool. There are some issue though. It is massive, it costs $200, and Lego can’t keep it in stock, so its impossible to find.

What is a car-loving Lego enthusiast to do? Just buy a different Lego set of course!

Lego has a long history of cool car-related creations. You can get a replica of the old
Volkswagen van, multiple version of F1 cars and the Cadillac-based Ecto-1 wagon from the Ghostbusters film. And then they have set 10242; the classic Mini Cooper.

For $99, you can grab one of these kits that has almost 1,100 pieces, and is extremely detailed. The car is bricked out in British Racing Green, has a full interior, working doors, trunk and "bonnet," and it comes with a complete picnic set as well.

You can watch me build the entire thing in time-lapse mode by pressing that little play button. The kit was a lot of fun to build, and it took me about 3 hours. It was a pretty awesome way to spend a Saturday morning. If you want to see some more photos of the finished kit, just check after the break.
