LEGO Creator London Bus (40220) Available for Purchase at LEGOLAND California

LEGO Creator London Bus (40220)

If you missed out on the LEGO Creator London Bus (40220) last year and you’re near LEGOLAND California, you may be in luck. I’ve been told that they have received a shipment of them and are selling them outright for $12.99 each. This is way better than what you can expect to find currently on eBay.

The London Bus was originally free with purchases of $75 or more at LEGO Stores and on [email protected] This is also a good time to pick it up especially with a rumored Double Decker Bus (10258) coming in July as they pair up well.

LEGO Creator London Bus (40220)

From now until August 15 at LEGO Brand Stores and on [email protected], LEGO is giving out the LEGO Creator London Bus (40220) with purchases of $75 or more as part of their main promotion for the month in the US and Canada. The contents of the box include two unnumbered bags, a 2×12 black plate, the instruction booklet, and a sticker sheet.

The 118-piece build is simple as you pretty much stack bricks and plates up. As the bus is a double-decker, both levels are similar with slight differences. The lower level has a lot of windows which uses the 1×2 trans-clear bricks. Not immediately shown on the front is the fairly new 1×2/2×4 angle plate used to attach the black grill pieces and 1×1 trans-clear studs for the headlights. The back left of the bus has an opening for bus entrance and a 1×1 tile for the step. At the very back, there are some 1×1 trans-clear studs for the tail lights. To finish off the lower level, there’s a 1×2 white tile with a sticker for the license plate.

For the upper level of the London Bus, there are more of the 1×2 trans-clear bricks along with some 1×1 trans-clear bricks for the windows. The main feature here are some of the large bus advertisement stickers for the set. On the left side, the sticker features the Union Jack flag along with the Big Ben (10253)icon with the words, “NOW’S THE TIME TO VISIT!” On the opposite side of the London Bus, there’s … Continue

LEGO Creator London Bus (40220) Polybag Revealed

LEGO Creator London Bus (40220)

Earlier today, Brickset uploaded an image of a new LEGO Creator London Bus (40220) polybag which features a double decker bus. There’s no word on how to obtain the polybag at this point as there is nothing listed on the LEGO Store calendar for July. We’ll have to wait and see if it is part of an August promo or not since the it goes great with the upcoming LEGO Creator Big Ben (10253) which will be releasing mid-June for VIPs and to the general public on July 1.

We’ll also have to see if this is a regional set or not as it does feature something prominent from the UK and we usually don’t get stuff like that here in the US. If it is, you can always build your own with the instructions but you’ll be missing the stickers for the advertisements on the sides of the bus.
