LEGO.com has officially listed its latest LEGO Lord of the Rings BrickHeadz sets with release dates slated for January 1, 2023. More official images and product descriptions are below.
It seems that an old brick favorite is making its way back into the Shire. The Lord of the Rings is one of the most beloved themes that LEGO came up with. And it’s great to see that we may soon have another wave of Middle-earth-inspired renditions in the form of three new LEGO Lord of the Rings BrickHeadz.
The revelation came in the form of listings in LEGO’s Pick-a-Brick service, with three new BrickHeadz sets inspired by the main characters of the franchise. True to form, these sets come in double packs, where each pair represents a major plot in the movie franchise.
There is no other information about these sets at the moment, save for their piece count and clear images. I assume that these new brick renditions will be available sometime in January 2023 along with other sets previously confirmed for 1HY release or the first half of the year. Its price range may also be around $15-$20, considering LEGO’s previous pricing for double-pack BrickHeadz sets.
Check out these images below. My favorite from the get-go is the Gandalf the Grey and Balrog set. I love how the Balrog turned out in his BrickHeadz version. The combination of black and red pieces, with their subtle variations, is spot-on. It manages to capture the menacing might and terror of the Balrog, reduced in a cute brick-chibi format.
I will update this page once LEGO releases more information about these new LEGO Lord of the Rings BrickHeadz sets. As of this posting, product links are already in place over at LEGO.com referencing these sets so it’s just a matter of time before an official product description is released by LEGO anytime soon.
Which one of these 3 new sets is a day 1 buy for you? Let’s talk about it in the comments section below.
