Is a Double Decker Bus coming soon?

HothBricks is today reporting that an upcoming LEGO set (10258) will be an AEC Routemaster bus similar to the one shown here. Commonly referred to as a Double Decker for it’s 2 levels of passenger transport and easily identifiable from its bright red color.

Earlier this year LEGO introduced a mini version of this bus as a bonus when they released the Big Ben Creator set.

The new set would be added to the LEGO Creator Expert series and feature a removable top and a banner of the Union Jack along the side. It is said to also feature stickers (sigh) indicating it’s the bus that runs the 9 route through Picadilly and Trafalgar Square.

Set 40220

No official announcement from LEGO or of course any photos yet. HothBricks is reporting early release in mid-July with public availability for August 1. This could be the mystery set featured on the July calendar. Of course it could be a Europe only offering in the beginning. Price is reported as 129.99 € in France.
