Sorry it has taken me awhile to officially post on the new LEGO Creator London Bus (10258), I’ve been a bit preoccupied with The Brickman’s Wonders of The World Exhibition and my MOC for Bricktober-Perth 2017 (see previous 2016 roundup). Anyway I couldn’t leave this little gem in the non reported pile that would have been sacrilege considering my London/UK heritage!
With the release of the mini London Bus late last year (40220) there was a lot of speculation that the traditional August (Mid July early VIP) Creator Expert vehicle would also be a London bus. Well that was finally confirmed last week. The London Bus will go on early sale for all those lucky enough to be in the UK at Leicester Square, Bluewater, Watford, Westfield and Stratford City from the 1st July. For the rest of us look at for the early VIP access from the 17th July or general release 1st August.
The London Bus will retail at USD $139.99 / AUD $199.99 / GBP £109.99 and includes 1,680 elements. She is also a sizable model standing 18cm high, 34cm long and 13cm wide. Like the modular system the bus has an easily removable roof and top deck to reveal detail inside.
For those lucky enough to grab an early one from one of the UK stores would love to see your bus in action! Hopefully the Land Rover will make it through the LEGO Ideas review panel (Land Rover 4×4) and I can add that to the collection as well.
