2014 marks the “Year of the Bus” celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Routemaster and the 75th anniversary of the RT-type bus. Part of the celebration, they have erected a Bus Stop made completely of LEGO in collaboration of LEGO, Transport for London and Trueform, marking the 200th year anniversary of the bus.
Walking along Regent Street you may notice by Hamley’s toy store a peculiarly looking bus stop right by it. The whole installation held an impressive 100,000 LEGOs consisting of the bus stop stand and shelter. Created by LEGO professional (official!) Duncan Titmarsh, the Bus Stop was there between 19th June 2014 to 15th July 2014.
I became immediately enthralled by the sight and was in complete awe of it. It definitely was not hard to miss which brought a smile on my face and bring a smile on a face on any passersby. The first thing I did was do a 360 take running my fingers along. The colours are what you would expect LEGO to be: full of light and vibrancies.
