I found this set at the LEGO store Chicago on Michigan Ave, today as well as Sandy's Rocket. I will get a review up when I'm done with the Sandy's Rocket review. Sorry to be a tease. :-$ Update: Check out the full review here.

Unfortunately, the driver does have the yellow hands but he also has a cool pink dorsal fin...

This was my favorite part of doing this review :-D :

That's a weird head. I wish it wasn't quite so cartoon-y, though since it comes from a cartoon, I guess that's a silly wish...

Thanks again for this new review *y*

I like all those orange pieces, and the fish head really looks strange on a MF's normal body *wacko*

Hinckley, Hinckley, he's our man, if he can't review it no one can.  *wub* I love that fish, and oddly it didn't occur to me that you would be able to change the hat... :-$ I'm pretty dim sometimes. Eitherway, I think this set looks perfect, including the windshield. With that many of those round windows you could make train!  :-D

So another day another find for you Hinckley 8-° , thanks for the great review *y*

This is another great set in the SB line, i really like how colourful it is and the bus is stunning.

Though for me what stands out most is that sweet new bus driver minfig head  *wub*

Agreed! I may sepnd some time today seeing which hairpiece or hat look best on him. :-D This would be a great piece to get in bulk to populate your own LEGO Bikini Bottom setup (does anybody have one?) most of the people in the cartoon are fish who live in the town. I hope to see a SB set in the future with a lot of these.

A very fine review of a really exquisite set! And although its size´s very lovely,
a second set to MOD a bigger bus with additional room for more than two passengers
could be an addictive idea....  X-D

That's...that's a lot of angry fish in one town 8-| . I don't think I want to go into Bikini Bottom anymore.

Checking the review right now.

Thanks for the great review.
Well, we have new minifigs again. Nice one, i like the driver though. Looks like LEGO is trying their best to produce some minifigs that looks alike in the cartoon
