LEGO is also gearing up for this year’s Easter celebrations, as it updates its online shopping portal to include this year’s next promotional. The uber-cute LEGO Easter Basket (40587) is our next gift-with-purchase (GWP) set that you may not want to miss.

This 368-piece promotional gift features a cute brick bunny inside a basket full of flowers. The bunny itself comes with a pair of poseable ears and a moveable head for a more wide and dynamic range of display features. Personally, I believe this is one of the best LEGO Seasonal sets out there in terms of aesthetics.

There’s no word yet on when this promo item will be offered and at what price point. However, fellow LEGO fan site Hoth Bricks speculate that it may be offered sometime between March 16 to April 9 just in time for this year’s LEGO Easter festivities.

In the meantime, check out the following product description and official images of the LEGO Easter Basket (40587).

LEGO Year of the Rabbit (40575) Official Images Released

Last month we caught glimpse of this year’s seasonal set based on the Chinese zodiac. And this time around, 2023’s LEGO Year of the Rabbit (40575) has been listed at LEGO’s home shopping portal, and with it, we get better images of what to expect from this collectible. Take a look.


Like its predecessors, the LEGO Year of the Rabbit will be offered as a gift-with-purchase set. According to The Brick Fan, it will be the next promotional item starting January 15, right after the promo ends for the LEGO Icons Blacktron Cruiser (40580). Our brick-built bunny will also be available as a free item from January 15 to 25 (just in time for the Chinese New Year) for a minimum single receipt purchase of any LEGO product worth $85 and above at all LEGO stores or

This current offering comes in at 194 pieces and is valued at $10. It comes in a predominantly black-and-white color scheme and features a pair of poseable ears and expressive eyes. It also includes a special red envelope to mark the Lunar New Year celebration.

The LEGO Year of the Rabbit is also the 9th Chinese zodiac-inspired set in the series starting with the LEGO Year of the Sheep (40418) in 2015. Though LEGO released a Year of the Snake (10250) set in 2013, its distribution was only available in China at that time and does not follow the design aesthetics of the current series. So we’re still three years away from having a complete set of these seasonal sets, with the Year of the Dragon (2024), Year of the Snake (2025), and Year of the Horse (2026) still waiting for their LEGO debut.

ICYMI: LEGO Bird’s Nest (40639) Seasonal Set Arriving in February

Fans of LEGO’s longstanding seasonal sets have something to look forward to this February just in time for Easter. The LEGO Bird’s Nest (40639) has been added to and will be available to LEGO fans starting February 1st.

Joining this year’s LEGO Year of the Rabbit (40575), the LEGO Bird’s Nest features an animal-themed build coming in 232 pieces. The latter will also be released alongside two new LEGO Botanical Collection sets by next month. Check out its official product description below and images.

Here’s a Better Look at the LEGO Year of the Rabbit (40575) Seasonal Set

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.

year of the rabbit 40575

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.

LEGO Lunar New Year VIP Add-On Pack (40605) Revealed

It looks like LEGO VIP members can expect another gift-with-purchase (GWP) polybag anytime soon. To add more brick-building fun to next year’s Chinese Lunar New Year festivities, LEGO will be offering the promotional LEGO Lunar New Year VIP Add-On Pack (40605).

There’s no official announcement from  yet as of this posting, but this promotional polybag was eventually confirmed thru LEGO’s Customer Service if you search for the building instructions for set 40602. Additionally, we can catch a glimpse of this polybag freebie if you search within LEGO’s Certification Page and search for item number 6428025.

Though the image for the LEGO Lunar New Year VIP Add-On Pack shown on the certification document is less than ideal, we can somehow surmise what this polybag has to offer. It features a great selection of seasonal LEGO pieces offered in variant colors such as recolored lantern pieces, minifigures accessories, and even a rabbit figure keeping in line with 2023 as being the Year of the Water Rabbit.

40605 screenshot 02

We might hear from LEGO anytime soon regarding the mechanics of how to avail of this promotional offering, especially since January 1st is just around the corner and there are plenty of LEGO 2023 sets that we can look forward to. We can certainly expect LEGO to provide additional incentives to VIP members and add more value to our future purchases to kickstart 2023.

I’ll update this post once new information comes in so stay tuned. Special Thanks to Brick Fanatics for the heads-up.

The Fans Have Spoken: Here are the Top 15 Most Wanted LEGO Sets of H1 2023

We’re just counting the days before the first wave of LEGO 2023 sets is out. And in case you haven’t finalized your LEGO 2023 wishlist, then you may want to hear what the LEGO fan community has to say. Because thanks to Brickset’s one of many interesting features, you can somehow gauge the sentiment of other equally excited LEGO fan builders and get to see what are the most wanted LEGO sets of 2023 according to Brickset members.

If you wish to know what sets to prioritize this January, then read on and take a look at the top 15 most wanted LEGO sets for 2023. Bear in mind that this is the most accurate data as of this posting, and there will be slight changes as we wrap up this year. However, I believe that these changes may not be that significant to change the ranking of these sets.

Check out these most popular LEGO 2023 sets starting at 1st place and in descending order of likes or being the most wanted.

Frankly speaking, this is a cool mix of sets that shows how diverse the interests of our LEGO fan community are. Love them or hate them (I know most of us find it difficult to appreciate that Morbius film, but hey, we still get to see our first minifigure of our vampire superhero probably because of that), these sets are quite attractive not just because of the themes that they represent but also the new parts and elements that they introduce. This is particularly true, especially in the case of LEGO City sets 60384 and 60394 where we get to see a new minifigure costume and otter element. Additionally, in the case of licensed LEGO themes such as Star Wars, LSW fans are certainly hyped for the much-awaited 501st Clone Trooper minifigures (75345) and a new and aptly sized TIE Bomber (75347).

And since a large chunk of LEGO’s market is geared towards the AFOL community, it is somewhat expected to see the first modular set of 2023 make it at the top of this list. The LEGO Icons  Jazz Club (10312) is the king of the hill for the majority of Brickset members even if it means shelling out $230 for this 2,800-piece set.

In the final analysis, consider this list as a guide to knowing what is hot and not for 2023 among LEGO fans. But in the end, you decide on which among these most wanted LEGO sets will it to your final “add-to-cart” list. So what do you think? Are there other LEGO 2023 sets that you want to see in this top 15 list? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
