LEGO Ideas The Neverending Story (40th Anniversary) Removed from Third 2022 Review Stage Due to Copyright Takedown

At the beginning of the month, LEGO announced the projects that moved on to the LEGO Ideas Third 2022 Review Stage but it looks like another project has been removed. This time, The Neverending Story (40th Anniversary) by FACEBRICKUP was removed due to a copyright takedown request from the license holder a few days after the announcement. LEGO didn’t mention who submitted the copyright takedown. It’s safe to say that we’ll probably never see another project based on The Neverending Story again.

This was the second project that reached the 10k but later had to be removed due to certain reasons, the first being the Holiday Village w/Train (Working). LEGO didn’t give a reason for that one. The LEGO Ideas blog post has been updated to show that 35 submissions will be moving on in the Review Stage.

Less than a week ago, LEGO launched the Houses of the World 1 (40583) promotion which was one of the higher price point ones and it looks like it has sold out. Even at a $250 purchase requirement, it managed to sell out online, at least here in the US.

It’s not too surprising since LEGO just released a ton of new sets for 2023 and there’s still three more sets in the series for later this year. Currently, it goes for about $50-$60 on the secondary market. The Lunar New Year VIP Add-On Pack (40605) has also sold out but that promo only needed a $50 purchase.

There is still the Year of the Rabbit (40575) promotion which runs until January 25 so you have a few days left on that one. It requires a $85 purchase for both in-stores and online.

LEGO DOTS Theme Ending in 2023

It has been announced that the LEGO DOTS theme will sadly be coming to an end later this year. LEGO DOTS was launched back in 2020 with mixed reactions and the past few years, it also included some licensed products which will have designs from Harry Potter in the next few months. The January and March products will be released but that will be the end of it. While the theme will be ending, it will not affect other similar themes like LEGO Art.

Update on exit of the LEGO® DOTS theme from June 2023 assortment and onwards

Dear all,

After careful consideration, we have decided to exit the LEGO® DOTS theme and integrate tile-based play into other themes within our portfolio.

January and March launches of LEGO DOTS novelties will go ahead but also be our last on this theme, with all current items from 2022 remaining active in the product line up until the end of the year.

LEGO DOTS was launched in March 2020 with the ambition to connect with kids through their passion for arts & crafts – looking at encouraging self-expression and to attract new builders to the LEGO brand. It was a completely new style of building which used brightly coloured tiles to ignite creativity with LEGO fans, in a fun and unique way.

Whilst seeing great appetite for this type of proposition and playing a key role in retaining kids in the LEGO brand, we also recognise the challenges of establishing LEGO DOTS as a long-term brand in the

To celebrate the launch, the LEGO Group has created a cabin chill experience – where you can retreat to nature via the LEGO cabin cam www.lego.com/cabin and see what happens in the woods! You might even spot the squirrel.

LEGO Star Wars 501st Clone Troopers Battle Pack (75345) Box Art Statement

LEGO has released a statement regarding the new LEGO Star Wars 501st Clone Troopers Battle Pack (75345). The main issue here is that the box image shows the helmet on the Clone Trooper doesn’t show what the final element and the positioning of the range finder. The box art shows it connected lower than the actual piece provided.

LEGO Star Wars Creative Lead Jens Kronvold Frederiksen states,

“Creating new sets involves a number of different teams working together in parallel, and unfortunately in this case the printed box art for 75345 features a computer render of a Phase 2 Clone Trooper helmet that doesn’t reflect the final finished physical element and positioning of the range finder on the figure.

In the final design of the physical helmet element, the visor dictates where holes for extra attachments need to be placed for them to sit. This is slightly higher than the position where the range finder is on the render found on the 75345 box.”

The Brick Fan 2022 Recap

Like we previous years, we are back with a recap for The Brick Fan on what happened in 2022. I know some of you don’t read this but this is just for posterity.

Our post count went down to 912 from a previous 1,095 from 2021, however, 2022 was our highest traffic year with 32,039,740 page views. It’s not a huge increase from 2021 as it was only about 1% but we averaged more views per post which concludes that we didn’t need to post more to get the same amount of traffic. Makes me think of what traffic would be like if we had 100 posts a week, IYKYK.

The highest traffic day was on my birthday which coincidentally was also the same day as LEGO Con 2022 where LEGO revealed a lot of new sets that day. That was the previous record of the highest total ever on the site but that has since been broken a few days ago.

We had less returning visits but we did have more first time visits, possibly because of new fans that have joined the hobby in recent years. We crossed the 150 million page view mark and we should be hitting 200 million by the end of the year.


Our social media accounts have been growing slowly and I’m content on how they are growing. They could be better but I don’t advertise them too much or try to get people to follow.

Facebook – 25,979 followers (11% increase)
Twitter – 14,331 followers (19% increase)

LEGO Designer James May Teases Four 2023 LEGO Ideas Sets

LEGO Designer James May a few hours ago has teased what LEGO Ideas sets we can expect to see in 2023. In his Twitter post, he shows off some projects he’s been working on since he moved to the LEGO Ideas team which includes BTS – Dynamite, Hocus Pocus – The Sanderson Sisters’ Cottage, and the Polaroid OneStep SX-70. He’s also teases another mystery set that should be coming next year.

There are some possibilities on what that fourth set could be. Note that it takes roughly about one and half years of production time from the announcement to release date. One is the Tribute to Galileo Galilei GWP from the Ready, Set, Go STEM! building contest which was announced back in June so it could be a late 2023 release. Another set could be the Viking Village from the Target Fan Vote which was announced in August. This would also be a late 2023 release as well. I doubt that it would be something from the Second 2022 Review since those winner(s) haven’t even been announced yet and that would really push the production time up quite a bit but we’ll see.

There’s also a greenhouse on the roof as well. Check out more images of the set below.

In addition, there will also be a change to the look of the building instructions. This mainly affects the adult-oriented sets as they migrate to the paper bags. This is to ensure that the visual appearance of the pags is not impacted by the ink marks caused by the friction during transportation.

As our fans have noticed, the covers of building instructions for many of our sets underwent a re-design this year with exception of our LEGO® sets for adults. Starting from 1HY 2023, building instructions for adult sets will also feature re-designed covers with lighter background prints. The redesign of building instruction covers is connected to our move to paper-based bags in our boxes. A lighter background print ensures that we maintain our very high quality standards. In this case, that the visual appearance of the paper-based bags is not impacted by potential ink marks caused by friction between building instructions and bags during transportation.

LEGO Bricktober 2022 VIP Sets Not Premium Version

LEGO Bricktober 2022 Dragon Adventure Ride (6432434)

The LEGO Bricktober 2022 VIP rewards are starting to get into collectors’ hands and there’s one major difference between them and the original Bricktober sets that were available in the Asian/Canadian markets.

The original sets had a much more premium feel with the flip open box, however, the VIP set uses the standard yellow cardboard box which we’ve seen before with previous GWPs and rewards. It wasn’t mentioned with the Dragon Adventure Ride that it would come in the yellow box and everyone expected the other. The Pirate Adventure Ride did specify that it would be the yellow box version.

LEGO didn’t mention why they switched to the more plain version. I suspect that they didn’t know that it wasn’t going to be an APAC/Canada exclusive and the rest of the world would get them as well. Also it would’ve cost a lot more to roll out the harder flip top boxes than to use the cardboard ones.

There is still the Fantasy Adventure Ride (6427893) and Space Adventure Ride (6427896) left to be released but there’s no mentioning of when those will go up in the VIP Center.

LEGO Ideas Football Table (21337) 30% Discount on LEGO Shop

LEGO currently has the LEGO Ideas Football Table (21337) on sale for 30% off on the LEGO Shop. It is now priced at $174.99 which saves you $75 on it. This discount does have some meaning especially since it just released last month.

The most obvious reason is that it is overpriced for what you get as real foosball tables cost less than the price of it and not many people would want to spend money on the small one. Also some may not want or don’t have money to spend on LEGO in general since there’s been a lot more higher priced sets that have been released this year compared to previous years. People are more budget conscious and they have to pick and choose which sets are worth the price.

Either way, the set has been discounted but there’s no mentioning on how long it will last. Maybe it’s one of those sets that end up on the permanent sales list.
