LEGO is celebrating the launch of its new Creator Expert London Bus with a life sized LEGO branded Routemaster bus in Leicester Square.
A Facebook Live presentation of the LEGO London Bus – led by designers of the set Morten Graff-Wang and Jamie Berard – took place on board the bus.
The event was followed with exclusive interviews with high profile influencers with links to the AFOL community.
Visitors to Leicester Square joined in with the celebrations through the day, which included a LEGO London Bus mosaic build as well as a photo competition with Lester, the LEGO Leicester Square mascot.
‘Featuring a wealth of authentic details, the beautifully crafted LEGO London Bus oozes authenticity and intricate details that capture the character and charm of a celebrated London icon,’ read a statement from the firm.
The new London Bus LEGO kit comes with an array of brick-built features and details, including large windows, bright red curved bodywork, panoramic windshield, reversible transit advertising posters, standard tread tyres and a destination sign.
It also has an opening hood with engine, detailed driver’s cab with sliding door and a removable roof and upper deck for access to the detailed interior.
