LEGO Ideas 21344 The Orient Express Train Leaked Online For November 2023

Previously reportedly delayed, we now have our first leaked images of the upcoming LEGO Ideas set 21344 The Orient Express Train. It was a couple of weeks ago that we reported the supposed reveal date of the 4th of October for the 18+ LEGO Ideas set. However, this quickly turned out to be false with many reports suggesting the set had been delayed or entirely cancelled.

But these reports seem to be false as the latest edition of the LEGO online catalogue has given us a glimpse of 21344. The seventh and final LEGO Ideas set of 2023 will be a brick-built version of the Orient Express first submitted by LEt.sGo. Trains and LEGO aren't often seen but this may finally be the start of a brand new range of sets once it releases on 1st November for $299.99.

The brand new LEGO Ideas set will include a total of 2,540 pieces which may sound like a lot but it is actually 455 pieces fewer than the original fan submission. This had a total of 2,995 pieces but as we can see from the leaked images, LEGO have gone a different route for the train and made it more old school rather than the original more modern submission. This is especially seen in the change of colour scheme to blue.

Another change is the increase in passenger cars for the train. Along with the engine car, we now have two passenger cars at the back with fully detailed interiors. This is perfect for the eight Minifigures included to sit back and relax whilst also being able to look out the wind on their journey and grab a drink or two from the bar. There's even a toilet, a comfy sofa, a LEGO typewriter and a cosy bed.

And finally, this grand LEGO train is topped off with a track display stand making it a more display-worthy model than previous LEGO trains. However, no motorized elements are included but these can be easily added if you wish and have allowed LEGO to keep that price tag as $299.99 for 2,540 pieces. 1st November 2023 is still the release date so we can expect an official reveal any day now...
