What, exactly, does the 'Expert' tag mean? For a start, it does not seem to have any alternative builds, so I'm not sure it really qualifies as a proper 'Creator' set. On the other hand, it is like an 'Exclusive' set that is more accessible and affordable. Maybe a bit simpler, but I actually prefer an easy build sometimes because it reminds me of the way Lego was when I was a kid, when the equivalent of 'Creator' sets were just 'Lego' sets. The builds are less fidgety and the pieces more flexible than 'Exclusive' sets.
Actually, looking at the piece, count, it's not much more than other Creator sets of previous years, like the Transport Ferry and the Highway Transport. So maybe the 'Expert' tag just applies to the fact that the build is compatible with minifigs and contains six of them.
What do you think of this new 'Expert' set? Are you unhappy that they seems to be moving further away from the 'Creator' spirit by including minifigs but no alternative builds, or happy that this is set in the '10xxx' range that is accessible and affordable?

Whether the Horizon Express (not Horizontal Express ) qualifies as a Creator set or not should probably be discussed in the thread for that set.

I think Drdesigns is right though... the '10xxx' set number and the lack of alternative builds means this is really a D2C set with new packaging. And if all 'Creator' sets are going to have difficulty rankings on them now, there isn't as much to discuss as I thought there was.
