Lego Bricks & More Farm Brick Box (4626): Another inclusion from my lot find, and this time another Bricks & More set. This one though lacks the parts of it’s big brother that I recently reviewed, and is also a bit older. I will say that I do like the tractor design from them, and it’s a little more diverse for part uniqueness as well.

So then accordingly while there are 232 pieces, 90 of them are unique. Now since some of these are a bit more esoteric looking for rarity seemed pointless – so I decided instead to see how many pieces this set could be spread across. The mindset there is hey maybe you’re missing some pieces for your set, hmm I wonder how many sets I could potentially get that last piece with this one single box for (what was) a low price.
The answer is surprisingly 3,232 sets (as of the date this was published of course). Now most of that is actually because there’s a bit of crossover. Thankfully from Brickset I was able to get CSV data and there were actually a total of 17,162 sets. However removing duplicates and we get back to 3,232. I would also like to congratulate myself for going at least 5 reviews before breaking out Excel. (which if you want drop me a note in the comments.)
Remix: So in light of me last time doing a similar pieceset, I still had to contend with the doors and house pieces. So for this I decided to make an accident. If I’m honest this isn’t the most spiritual in terms of a remix (even for a set like this where it’s more open), but I wanted to build a little race car.
Final Thoughts: I think my biggest dislike of this is that there’s really not enough pieces here to make a good farmhouse. I know it’s meant to be a mix box, but even using the blues I had from the car in the house it’d still be too diversely colored and sized to be pleasant. I have done some math though, and based on original pricing this is better value for your money than the Large Brick Box, which you’d think a large set would beat out.
Final Score: 2 out of 5 Stars
