On 25 March 2013, Way85 presented 3 bus puzzles (2x2x2) in the colours red, green and blue, see
here

It appears that there is also a 4th ‘Keio’ bus variation in white, see below.

The puzzle with the trademark Keio depicts not a bus but a suburban railway train:

Are these promotional items? Or is the thinking here that once your kids grow out of the playing with toy buses and trains age (some of us never do) that they'll move into the 2x2x2 puzzle solving age? This sort of falls in the category of things that make me stop and ask "why?". Though I guess the same could be said about all the Star Wars head and Disney head 2x2x2's. If after watching Star Wars, your first thought is... Oh Princess Leia's head would make for a great 2x2x2... then I guess this all makes sense. I'm just not one of those people. Yes... I like trains, I like Star Wars, and I like 2x2x2s but...

Anyways, to each their own and it is refreshing that this twisty puzzle community is as diverse as it is. If I'm going to get a 2x2x2 train I want one that runs on my HO gauge track. LOL.

P.S. Now having said all that I wouldn't be surprised that these were super rare, super collectible, and worth fortune. I think the Star Wars heads and Disney heads are already heading that way if they aren't there already. Just goes to show you what I know... or don't know as the case may be.
