How this came about
As you can imagine, my children spend a lot of time with our Lego collection. Recently, they asked me to build them a Lego bus based on those seen in London, following a trip to the capital and the result was the bus you can see here.
The outside has used Lego Bricks to replicate the style of the New Bus for London whilst the internals allows minifigs to be seated. There is also a wheelchair space for those with mobility issues. The roof and top deck can be removed to enable access to the lower deck which means that it is easy to allow people to sit downstairs. The destination panel is blank to allow customisation, either by Lego or the user.
Because there is nothing else like this out there, I’ve decided to ask Lego to make it a set available to others. I believe that this would sit well on the shelves of the Transport Museum and in Lego Stores around the world. What I need next is 10,000 “supporters” – people who agree that it’s a good idea. This does not mean you have to buy it. It only asks you to sign up to the Lego Ideas website, support the idea and answer 3 questions. You won’t be bombarded to buy the product afterwards.
