The 10230 Mini Modulars set is based on the existing modular series:

enter image description here

As well as the 4695 Mini Harry Potter Knight Bus. Have there been other micro-scale sets released by LEGO based on existing sets?

There are a large number of Star Wars themed micro-scale sets (a number of which they are re-releasing in the collectible planets with a minifig) that were based on larger sets. –  Zhaph - Ben Duguid Jan 29 '12 at 19:20
    
@Zhaph-BenDuguid: I know about those too, but they're sold as a set , like in a calender. –  Ambo100 Jan 29 '12 at 19:21
    
Which ones do you mean are sold as a set - the Buildings or the SW ones? All of the sets listed in Star Wars Minis were sold separately, and had larger sets they were based on. –  Zhaph - Ben Duguid Jan 29 '12 at 23:00
    
@Zhaph-BenDuguid: Oh. I thought you meant this. –  Ambo100 Feb 1 '12 at 14:26
    
The problem with this question, is to decide which sets are actually mini/micro versions of other sets, and which sets are made after the same original, but just on another scale. With the Mini Modulars it's obvious they're based on the bigger sets. But Star Wars sets have been made in a range of scales, some of which happen to be micro. Do these count? And crocodiles are crocodiles, so does 20015 count as a smaller version of 5868? –  SQB Feb 25 at 9:41

I added some, but there lots more in the Creator theme. –  SQB Feb 25 at 9:33

There's also a mini hogwarts express:

40028-1 - mini hogwarts express

And you probably can count the Liberty Statue in the Skyline factory set:

5526-1 - Skyline

Most other minis are indeed from Star Wars, but I'm not sure which ones have bigger versions.

Every single Star Wars mini on that page had a corresponding larger version, some had more than one scale. –  Zhaph - Ben Duguid Jan 30 '12 at 11:35
