LEGO Creator Double Decker Bus (10258) Rumored for July VIP Release

If you saw my post about the July 2017 LEGO Store Calendar, VIPs will be getting early access to an exclusive set and it looks like we may know what it is. Hoth Bricks is reporting that the D2C set will be the LEGO Creator Double Decker Bus (10258). The bus will be a larger version of the London Bus (40220) which we got last year.

If this rumor is true, it continues a trend of having regular sets as well as a smaller promotion set of the same vehicle. We first saw this with the Volkswagen T1 Camper Van (10220) with the mini 40079 set then with the Volkswagen Beetle (10252) with the smaller 40252 version.

If the LEGO Creator Double Decker Bus (10258) is indeed coming out in July for VIPs, we should expect official images and the designer video in the next few weeks.

Update: The LEGO Creator London Bus (10258) has been officially announced. You can check out the details in my other post.

The LEGO Batman Movie Now Available on Blu-Ray

The LEGO Batman Movie Target Combo

The LEGO Batman Movie is now available on Blu-Ray and DVD. As I mentioned before in a previous post from a few months back, various retailer will have their own exclusives. Each of the Blu-Rays will have some special features including four new original animated shorts, four deleted scenes, and six featurettes.

Target (shown above) probably has the most attractive version as it includes the exclusive Batgirl (30612) minifigure polybag along with some TLBM postcards. Batgirl has a new head piece and is different from the ones in the current sets.


Walmart‘s version of the Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital HD copy will include a lunchbag.

The LEGO Group Continues Partnership With WWF to Reduce CO2 Emissions

A few days ago, The LEGO Group announced that it is extending their partnership with the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). It is an effort to reduce CO2 emissions with their manufacturing and supply chain operations by 2020. The partnership with WWF is to also promote global action on climate change.

LEGO joined with WWF’s Climate Savers Programme in 2014 and has since exceeded all it’s climate targets including:

– Balancing 100% of energy use with renewable sources through investing DKK 6 billion in two offshore wind farms
– Research and development of more sustainable materials
– Improving energy efficiency of producing LEGO bricks by more than 12%

The continued partnership with WWF by TLG has committed to the following by 2020:

– A further 10% increase in carbon (CO2) efficiency per LEGO brick produced
– Continuing to ensure 100% of energy consumption is balanced by production of renewable energy sources
– Further engaging with key suppliers to reduce the CO2 emissions in the full supply chain

You can read more about The LEGO Group’s continued partnership with WWF in the link above.
