If you recall, the July LEGO Store Calendar already teased next month’s exclusive VIP set. We don’t have the faintest idea then on what it could be, considering that we already have the most recent LEGO Creator Expert Carousel (10257). But thanks to Hoth Bricks, we now have info on what this mystery set will be.
Already listed on Brickset, the LEGO Creator Expert Double Decker Bus (10258) is slated to be the next Advanced Model set that takes cue from its smaller cousin, the LEGO Creator London Bus (40220). It is expected that the July D2C exclusive will be a faithful representation of the iconic London Bus that may probably designed to be at a minifig scale.
Interestingly, the LEGO Creator Carousel (10257) designer video may have already hinted on the Double Decker Bus when it featured one the LEGO designers having a doppelganger of some sorts.
It also seems that LEGO intends to have this mini-versions and large set counterparts as main staple of its Creator line. In 2011, we saw the Volkswagen T1 Camper Van (10220) getting the LEGO treatment and two years later, having a mini-me version in the form of the Mini VW T1 Camper Van (40079) polybag. Then just last year, we have the Volkswagen Beetle (10252) and its smaller cousin the Mini Volkswagen Beetle (40252) LEGO Store promotional.
If this indeed our July LEGO Creator Expert Store exclusive, then we can expect an official word from LEGO anytime soon. The LEGO Creator Expert Double Decker Bus (10258) will be available for early VIP access from July 17-31, retailing at 129.99 Euros. What do you think about this set brick fans?
