Are these holiday-themed Gift-with-purchase sets worth seeking out, or just a nice bonus when buying LEGO sets this December?
New LEGO Brick Labels are almost ready, we’ve reviewed a bunch of awesome LEGO sets, and we’ll show you how easy it is to add a motor to the Orient Express Train.
This set did not include instructions for adding a motor to this set, but here they are — and it only requires a few common parts.
The Orient Express was known for opulent luxury and a high price tag. Let’s see if the LEGO version is on the same track…
This year we review four advent calendars. Let’s find out which ones stand out and are worth picking up.

What’s in this update?
I work hard to make sure that every update makes the collection better and more complete. This includes a lot of work that you might not notice to ensure that each part is placed at an appropriate location in the collection, since many people use the contact sheet as a guide when building and when sorting.
The new labels are almost evenly distributed across three categories:
- Brand new parts for 2023.
This includes some parts that are already very popular, as well as some parts from the end of the year which I anticipate will be very popular soon.
- Parts from 2022 which are becoming more popular.
This includes parts which I was not sure if they would remain rare (or only used in a single theme), but have shown continued popularity.
- Parts from earlier years that have shown longevity, even if they are not used in all that many sets.
This include a review of fresh data showing the 1500 most common LEGO parts. (An update to my Most Common LEGO Parts article will be ready soon.)
