In case you missed it, LEGO Japan’s Social Media Twitter account shared a better, clearer image of 2023’s LEGO Year of the Rabbit (40575) seasonal set. We first caught wind of this annual set early in September, and this time around, it’s nice to have a closer look.

Coming in at 193 pieces, the LEGO Year of the Rabbit (40575) celebrates 2023 as the Year of the Water Rabbit according to the Chinese zodiac calendar. The set features a black and white brick-built bunny with poseable ears and movable, expressive eyes. It also comes with a unique 1×2 printed tile to mark the occasion.
The Twitter post goes to show that LEGO fans can get this freebie upon single-receipt LEGO purchases equal to, or greater than 9,900 Japanese Yen or roughly $75 USD at any LEGO store until supplies last. I’m not quite sure if this promotional is already live in the US, but since we only have a few days to go before 2023 kicks in, then it’s a possibility that LEGO may offer this set as a freebie to sweeten the deal with its January 2023 sets.
Be sure to stay tuned for more updates on this set if you have this under your LEGO must-haves radar.
