LEGO Technic March 2023 Sets Now Listed at LEGO.com

Just a couple of days ago, several LEGO Technic March 2023 sets were unveiled via the LEGO Kidz Zone app. And as expected, these sets are now up and listed at LEGO’s online shopping portal with more details, better images, and a March release date instead of April.

Initially, there are four sets that were revealed. But for now, LEGO has unveiled three of these, with the Firefighter Aircraft (42152) set still waiting to have its official product listing. Among these sets, I have to say that the Batcycle is a must-have for me. Not only does it capture the feel of its cinematic replica from last year’s DC film, but its stunning all-black color motif is also something to be desired.

Check out the rest of this wave’s official images below and let me in the comments what your thoughts are about this selection of new LEGO Technic sets.

LEGO Houses of the World 1 (40583) Is Most Likely Our First 2023 GWP Set

Huw from Brickset has shared a review of what seems to be our next LEGO gift-with-purchase (GWP) set for 2023. The LEGO Houses of the World 1 (40583) implies that this may just be the first of a series of promotional sets that is slated for next year.

Huw’s review is a pleasant surprise since this is the first time that we are seeing this set. LEGO is still mum about this promotional, but since we are seeing a review of the LEGO Houses of the World then we can assume that an official announcement may likely be on its way anytime soon. It is also nice to see if similar future GWP sets can somehow be connected to this one, culminating in a nice display set just like that of LEGO’s 60 Years of the LEGO Brick (40290) from 2018, or that of Tribute to LEGO House (40563) promotional sets from last year.

As a limited edition set, the Brickset article goes on to show that the first house to be given the spotlight is a dwelling that is native to Central America. Coming in at 348 pieces, the LEGO Houses of the World microscale set 1 is loaded with plenty of details both inside and out. It measures 10×12 studs, featuring a 2-story house with plenty of amenities. There are also plenty of LEGO elements and pieces which give a hint of the cultural background of its residents. I have no qualms about the use of stickers for some of its pieces since this set is a gift-with-purchase, to begin with. Plus, it also comes with a LEGO Friends-like Chihuahua piece which gives the set its unique personality.

There’s no official word yet from LEGO as of this posting, but given its piece count, we can also surmise that the relative purchase amount required to bag this freebie may be around $150-$200. I’ll keep you posted on this one as more information comes in.

Special thanks again to Huw from Brickset for sharing this great review and images.
