Description & Features+

Take the iconic MINI Cooper for a drive! This beautifully crafted LEGO® brick replica of the classic MINI Cooper Mk VII is full of authentic details, from the classic green and white color scheme with white wing mirrors and racing stripes, to the opening doors, hood and trunk, sporty fog lights, detailed engine and separate spare tire compartment. You can even remove the roof to access a tan colored interior with patterned seats, veneer-style dashboard, turning steering wheel, and moving gearshift and handbrake. And of course, no MINI Cooper would be complete without a picnic basket and blanket, the perfect accessories for a fun day in the countryside!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lego MINI Cooper Mark 7 The Lego MINI Cooper is a great set, it looks just like the real MINI Cooper Mark 7. I LOVE the color. I'm glad that the Mini has a spare tire, and it's cool that it came with a picnic basket and blanket. The only problem is that the steering wheel is a little big for the car. It has brilliant details. This would be great next to the lego beetle and vw bus.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mini Cooper Review The Lego Mini Cooper set is a set with an excellent variety of parts. It has some cool functions such as the picnic set and removable roof. However, it has no functional steering or suspension. This set uses a variety of building techniques which make the set enjoyable. The final product is on the small size, but I was expecting a mini cooper to be "mini." The set is an great parts donor for your collection, but it still would have been nice if this set featured actual steering and suspension.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most pleasing build ever ! The Mini Cooper is an iconic little car and this a great representation of it. It would have been nice if steering was added, but who's stopping the creative mind in adding or incorporating it from another build ? This has to be the most pleasing build ever and deserves to be placed on any desk or shelf for all to see !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beloved icon immortalised in LEGO First of all, I'll admit that I'm by no means a car expert, however, I think that LEGO has captured the essence of the mini cooper very well; it's superbly sculpted with the smooth curves, the patterned seats, the grill and the lights and all the extra details, for example- the picnic basket, the gearshift, the engine and the spare tyre compartment are also great. I also think the stickers are worth mentioning as despite they're a pain to put on they do contribute a lot to the realism and authenticity of the model. Finally, the colour choices LEGO have made are excellent; the classic British racing green for this model looks awesome, the tan interior complements the outside very well and the silver metallic pieces were also a great decision in terms of the aesthetics. The build was very enjoyable and some of the part uses are ingenious: the minifigure ice skates used to make the door handles and the shields used to make the lights were the best. Nevertheless, this set does have some minor flaws. For example, I appreciate the fact the mini steering wheel was big but I don't know if it's quite to scale- it touches the seat in it's resting position so how could someone sit down and actually steer this thing? Another aspect of the mini cooper I found slightly puzzling was the fact this model is built at a larger scale than the VW T1 campervan...even though it's quite empty inside. The T1 campervan interior is packed with cool details, but then again, I suppose this is a different kind of vehicle and model. Furthermore, the mini has limited playability as it's quite difficult to drive and it's not really suitable for minifigures -this is a display model.Finally, there are a lot of stickers in this model so you have to be really careful when putting them on-they're fairly important in adding to the mini cooper's authenticity and they're in quite conspicuous places so if you want your model to be perfect then make sure the stickers are applied correctly. To round things off, I definitely recommend this awesome model but primarily to slightly older and more experienced builders who will probably enjoy the build more and appreciate the model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun build! When I saw it in the store I wasn't sure if I wanted it or not. I liked it but I wasn't in love with it like the VW Bus but after a few more visits to the store it started to grow on me so I picked one up. The color kept me from loving it haha. I'm glad that I did though because it was a fun build and I'm really happy with it. The seats were my favorite part to build. The picnic basket accessories are adorable and I love how they store in the trunk! The quality of Legos is definitely superior. Very enjoyable, relaxing and fun experience!
