VW 10220 - Different Piece Counts on box

Recommended Posts

Hi, Was just moving my collection and noticed that of the 3 x 10220 sets I have (all sealed), 2 of them say 1334 pieces and the other says 1332 pieces.

 

Anyone know what the differences are?

It's not a worry, but more of a curiosity.

 

There are very minor differences to the boxes - I'm guessing one was produced in USA/Mexico and the others in Europe.

2 were bought from Lego online shop and 1 from their physical store.

 

thanks.

They added two additional white pieces to the front of the roof at some point to add some strength. It was discussed a while back in the what set did you build thread but I can't find the post...

I think people reported calling Lego too and they would send them the additional pieces.

Does that mean the 1332 version has the potential of being more valuable than the 1334 version? Being the "first edition" and all...

 

I highly doubt it. Take for example 10213 .. it had design problems and LEGO released 10231 to address them. There is a $5 difference in Brickpicker values (the new one being worth more).

 

Most consumers won't even notice or care.

I do not see a couple additional plates making a noticeable difference. Now if it was close to a hundred with an entire section redesigned perhaps then.

Usually no difference is made when there are box errors/piece adjustments made to a set. Practially all buyers don`t care about that sort of thing. If you`re a parent/grandparent/uncle/aunt/etc who buys but is not familiar with all the intricate details around this sort of thing, they won`t notice, and even on the off chance that they do, they don`t care, but it`s not enough of a change in most cases to matter. The VC sets here look identical, and aside from 2 plates, 99.9% of people aren`t going to notice, unless they stared long enough, even then, it would probably be on 95% of people, and that 5% aren`t going to pay more money.

On the other side, you can argue that it's the "new version with two more plates"...

And some buyer will say "Oh, it comes with a couple of plates? I need new kitchenware!"

If buyers don't want to starve, they will have to serve themselves hundreds of time if they eat in lego "plates" :)
