Most-likely it has to do with localization. If they printed the names of sets on instructions, they would have to print a different instruction booklet for each language the set name is translated into, in addition to translating the boxes (and possibly the stickers). You will notice that instruction manuals are usually free of any written instructions, ...

This is Part# 4150px1. Okay, I didn't call/write LEGO for answers. This is just speculative guesswork (and I should be ashamed). First off, sorry, for not giving you time to explain the full relevance of the Disney clocks with regards to your question. There are other clock patterns besides this pattern, and the "Just-Before-Midnight" Disney pattern. ...

I emailed TLG: These changes are different as it is how Disney would like it be displayed. Prior to a set release, each set goes through a number of reviews. One of these, is our designers show Disney the boxes for them to sign off on and approve, after they review the boxes. For each set, they said the boxes were approved for release! It does appear ...

If you want to know not only the uniqueness of an item but also the uniqueness of the item in a specific color, the color drop-down ...

My search for information pertaining to the history of this printed piece turned up no results. Not to say there isn't any, I just couldn't find anything. I honestly never gave it much thought before and assumed they simply chose an aesthetically pleasing arrangement of the clock hands. I found that this part first appeared in 1983 on set# 7824 "Train ...

It's more complicated than that. In some markets boxes do carry the set's name. I just took a picture of two sets I have lying around unopened: As you can see the elves set in front has the name on the box, while the Disney princesses set in the back doesn't. I don't precisely remember where I bought those two sets (but it's not unlikely one was intended ...

Here is another way to get your answer: Brickset.com! If you go to the product page for set 71040, you can see several tab labels you can click on. One of them is labeled "Parts". In the Parts screen, Brickset shows all the parts that are in LEGO's official inventory, and cross-checks this with its parts database to tell you, by part, in how many sets ...
