10311 Orchid is one of two upcoming releases in the LEGO Botanical Collection. An offshoot of the Creator Expert line, the Botanical Collection depicts various plants with a high degree of realism. There are now five products in the collection: one of the earlier releases, 10281 Bonsai Tree, can even be found on our Top 20 Sets list.
10311 Orchid was officially revealed yesterday alongside 10309 Succulents; the former is available to pre-order in both the UK and US, with its official release date on May 1. However, Reddit user CronchyPeanut has recently posted photos of the set on Walmart shelves. This suggests American LEGO fans don’t have to wait around to grab it.
Assuming these claims are accurate, 10311 Orchid is another LEGO set to see an early release. A recent example of this came in the form of 75342 Republic Fighter Tank, which was discovered at a Mexican retailer by another Reddit user.
