A couple of weeks ago, we received information that the next LEGO Creator D2C set will pay tribute to one of London’s iconic attractions. The LEGO Creator Expert London Bus (10258), also referred to as the Double Decker Bus, is July’s exclusive direct-to-consumer set which will be available for early VIP access from July 17-31, as teased in LEGO’s July Store Calendar, and LEGO fans in China and London may have the privilege of seeing this set earlier.
Based on our brick intel, a special event in all of 5 LEGO Stores in London within the M25 area is slated to take place on July 1 this Saturday, with the unveiling of the LEGO Creator Expert London Bus as its highlight. According to our sources, all 5 LEGO Stores in London will offer the abovementioned set retailing for £109.99 that also comes with a free gift upon purchase. Set 10258 is said to be at a minifig scale so it is interesting to see how this set will turn out.
Speaking of how it looks like, it seems that we don’t need to assume any longer. Promobricks recently reported that an image of a LEGO Store flyer in China for the months of July and August, 2017 is now making rounds over at Reddit. The image was shared by dylanchow over the anonymous file/image sharing platform. According to the Reddit post, the LEGO Creator Expert London Bus (10258) will come in 1,680 pieces measuring at 18 cm. in height, 34 cm. long and 13 cm. wide. It is reported to be at a minifigure scale, so this is one model that will perfectly house your minifigure passengers and tourist. Also seen on the flyer is the largest LEGO Minecraft set to date – The Mountain Cave (21137).
Since July 1 is just around the corner, we can expect LEGO’s official press release and images of the LEGO Creator Expert London Bus (10258) to be up anytime soon. This D2C set is expected to be available to the general public starting August 1 retailing in the US for $119.99.
