LEGO Botanical Collection 10311 Orchid is in danger of selling out

10311 Orchid, one of two new LEGO Botanical Collection sets for 2022, has already sold out in the US – and is now in danger of selling out in the UK and Europe, too.

The buildable plant launched alongside 10309 Succulents on May 1, and very quickly shifted to ‘temporarily out of stock’ stateside. It was still available to order with immediate delivery in the UK and Europe, however – until earlier this week, when 10311 Orchid moved to back order, with a delivery date of June 20.

That means the earliest you’re likely to receive the set if you order it today is over a month from now, as the LEGO Group struggles to keep up with demand for the 608-piece plant. It’s not hard to see why, either: 10311 Orchid is possibly the best Botanical Collection model to date, combining a sprawling and imaginative build (check out those Stranger Things elements) with beautiful colours.

It’s also one of the more cost-effective entries in the 18+ line-up, coming in at just £44.99 / $49.99 / €49.99. And it’s for all those reasons and more that 10311 Orchid now sits in Brick Fanatics’ Top 20 LEGO Sets List – at least while it’s still available on back order. Once it sells out completely, it’ll disappear from our list, which tracks the very best sets currently in stock at in the UK.

There’s no telling how quickly that might happen, but that the set is already on back order suggests more copies are being bought than the LEGO Group can currently deliver on – and if that trend continues apace, the window to order your copy of 10311 Orchid through official channels (bagging VIP points and working towards gifts-with-purchase in the process) could be narrowing rapidly.

Head over to to secure your copy before it sells out. It won’t qualify alone for either of the current gifts-with-purchase, 40529 Children’s Amusement Park and 40533 Cosmic Cardboard Adventures, but it’s a great starting point for reaching the required spends for either or both of them. A £90 / $90 / €90 order will qualify for 40529, while you’ll need to spend £160 / $160 / €160 to net both.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
