Personally, I appreciate how LEGO is giving additional effort in introducing sets that underscore other region’s festivities and traditions.

For avid builders, you may be interested to know that the LEGO BrickHeadz La Catrina also features new LEGO elements such as the new floral pieces that adorn its head, including new decorative face and torso tiles.

More LEGO BrickHeadz Disney 2021 Sets Arriving This Summer

It’s a long time coming, but it’s nice to see that Donald’s LEGO BrickHeadz version will finally have a partner that has been on the wishlist of LEGO BrickHeadz fans for almost a year. Thanks to a now-removed reference from the LEGO Customer Service portal, we can confirm that there are two LEGO BrickHeadz Disney 2021 sets that will be arriving this summer.

This particular reference came in the form of building instructions that were posted quite too early. And thanks to these building instructions, we can have a good look at what’s in store with these sets.

First off, we will be having a new LEGO BrickHeadz Daisy Duck (40476) set, expected to retail for 9.99 Euros. The set comes with two 1×4 printed tiles and a nice brick-built pink ribbon accessory. Needless to say, this particular set will go very well with the LEGO BrickHeadz Donald Duck (40377).

Next is what seems to be the second of its kind following the same set concept as that of the LEGO BrickHeadz Harry, Hermione, Ron, & Hagrid (40495) set. And from the Disney subtheme, we got a Duck Tales-inspired set in the form of the LEGO BrickHeadz Scrooge McDuck, Huey, Dewey, & Louie (40477). The set features the entire gang, with the siblings following the same build identifiable only through their colored tiles.

We do not have further details about these LEGO BrickHeadz Disney 2021 sets such as their piece count and retail price except for the possibility that they will arrive in June 2021. I will update this post once official info comes out from LEGO Shop@Home. In the meantime, be sure to keep tabs with us here on our blog site for more LEGO-related news.

Thanks to Promobricks for the heads-up.

LEGO BrickHeadz Voldemort, Nagini & Bellatrix (40496) Revealed

Following the recent reveal of a new LEGO BrickHeadz Harry Potter pack in the form of set 40495, we now have another one that we can add to our collection this June. This time around LEGO BrickHeadz fans can expect the arrival of a 3-pack, LEGO BrickHeadz Voldemort, Nagini & Bellatrix (40496) set.

Thanks to info shared by Promobricks, we can expect this new set to arrive in June alongside its Hogwarts counterparts. This LEGO BrickHeadz version of the “One Who Must Not Be named”, along with some of his cohorts, gives their characters a bit of LEGO humor and a certain degree of brick cuteness. I simply love the way Nagini turned out, giving the iconic Horcrux a bit of a chibi vibe. Bellatrix is easily recognizable as well, with her classic locks of hair replicated using those round 2×2 plates.

The LEGO BrickHeadz Voldemort, Nagini & Bellatrix (40496) is now the 7th BrickHeadz set from its Wizarding World subtheme, slated to be released in June. It clocks in at 344 pieces and is expected to retail around the $20-$25 price point. Since the box art has already made its appearance in the wild, we can expect this to be listed over at LEGO Shop@Home anytime soon.

LEGO Brickheadz Minions Now Available at LEGO’s Online Store

Other than the LEGO Marvel Shang-Chi sets making their appearance over at LEGO’s online store, another pair of cinematic tie-ins has now been officially included in LEGO servers. While the LEGO Brickheadz Minions made their debut in Australia a couple of days ago, Brickheadz collectors in the US will be pleased to know that they are now available for purchase over at LEGO Shop@Home.

Other than the regular sets that are already up on the shopping site, these new members to the ever-growing Brickheadz collection are a very much welcomed gesture. Check out their official images below together with their product descriptions.

LEGO Brickheadz Harry, Hermione, Ron & Hagrid (40495) Set Discovered

Just after sharing our first box art images of the LEGO Brickheadz Minions sets, Promobricks is back with another brick-built bobblehead reveal. We can confirm and expect that another LEGO Brickheadz set is about to join the ever-expanding Wizarding World of Harry Potter, thanks to Czech online store, Heureka. The LEGO Brickheadz Harry, Hermione, Ron & Hagrid (40495) set features the main protagonists of the Harry Potter franchise with the said offering being the largest Brickheadz set of to date in terms of the number of characters included. Unfortunately, we don’t have much information about this set as of this posting since the details on Heureka’s website are also scant in the meantime.

This latest LEGO Brickheadz set also renders Harry, Hermione, and Ron during their early years in Hogwarts. They also seem to be built on a smaller 3×3 base, as opposed to the standard 4×4. Each of them also sports a 1×3 printed tile for their uniform’s tie and shirt. I have to say that it’s interesting to see these little versions alongside their larger Brickheadz cousins such as those found in 2018’s Harry Potter and Hedwig (41615), Hermione Granger (41616), and Ron Weasley & Albus Dumbledore (41621). However, I have to say that this new mini Brickheadz version of Harry will take some time of getting used to.  Particularly because of those rather oversized eyeglasses. I feel that it does not sit well with the overall Brickheadz design.

This latest set also seems to feature a new, LEGO Brickheadz version of Hagrid. It’s not a major kind of revision but it’s nice to see Hagrid coming in with a unique printed tile of his own to accentuate his fashion. His first LEGO Brickheadz version from last year in the form Hagrid & Buckbeak (40412) did not come with any printed part or accessory. So this most recent iteration is a bit of an improvement.

The LEGO Brickheadz Harry, Hermione, Ron & Hagrid (40495) is not yet posted over at LEGO Shop@Home. But we can safely assume that we will probably hear more about it in the coming weeks, with an anticipated release date of June 2021. So what do you think of this new Brickheadz set? Let me know what you think in the comments below.

LEGO Brickheadz Minions Sets Spotted in the Wild

It looks like LEGO fans in Australia may have the better end of the deal on this one, especially if you’re an avid collector of LEGO Brickheadz and Universal Pictures adorable little yellow guys. Promobricks has just shared our first look at some of the box arts of the upcoming LEGO Brickheadz Minions The Rise of Gru sets. Check this out.

According to a report from Promobricks, these box art images started circulating over the Australian LEGO fan community when a LEGO-certified store in the region somehow posted these sets quite earlier than expected. However, it seems that these newest LEGO Brickheadz entries were taken down already, with the sets no longer listed as of this posting.

These pair of LEGO Brickheadz Minions sets both features a three-character pack, giving the film’s humorous characters their first-ever Brickheadz treatment.  Set 40421 features Bob, Kevin, and Belle Bottom – a new villain in the Despicable Me franchise. A new Minion character is also introduced in the movie and is likewise given his first LEGO rendition. As such, set 40420 includes Bob, Stuart, and a new yellow cutie in town, Otto. And in case you missed it, you may want to check the film’s official trailer to have a glimpse of these new characters.

Though we don’t have any other information about these new LEGO Brickheadz other than their box art images, we can expect a steady stream of news in the coming weeks as we anticipate these sets to arrive sometime in June. And though these new Brickheadz sets are yet to appear via LEGO’s online shopping portal, LEGO has also dedicated new LEGO sets under the Minions theme. Be sure to check them out as well over at LEGO Shop@Home. In the meantime, let’s take a look at these. I’ll update this post once new info comes in.

And the 150th LEGO BrickHeadz Set Will Be…

Last month, the LEGO Ideas platform has launched another fan activity that celebrates the upcoming release of the 150th LEGO BrickHeadz set. Fans of the brick-built collectible theme were given a chance to vote for the next BrickHeadz, coming from four pre-determined candidate themes.

As of this writing, there are currently more than 100 BrickHeadz that were already released, and it will definitely take some time before we see the likes of the 150th LEGO BrickHeadz set. And to make the voting process even more fun, the LEGO Ideas Team has rolled out four likely candidates that will be given the honor to mark such an occasion: Lilo & Stitch, Minecraft, Jaws, and Star Wars.

I have to say that I was excited about the idea of finally seeing an official, brick-built Stitch set (which somehow almost made it to the cut with Tyler’s LEGO Stitch product idea). But this being a majority vote among 13,000 LEGO fans who participated, the honor of being the 150th LEGO BrickHeadz set is now reserved for yet another LEGO Star Wars BrickHeadz set. That’s how democracy works I presume, even if you don’t particularly like the outcome.

The 150th LEGO BrickHeadz set will feature a Star Wars character.

Currently, the Stars Wars subtheme of the LEGO BrickHeadz series is by far the most represented theme in the said genre – with 16 LEGO Star Wars BrickHeadz sets under its belt. I guess that’s a testament to how popular this LEGO subtheme is among the majority of the brick-loving masses.

It is also interesting to note that LEGO may also be continuing its trend of offering official brick renditions of some of the most popular pop-icons of our generation, similar to the likes of LEGO BrickHeadz pairs such as that of Marty MacFly and Doc Brown (41611), and Peter Venkman and Slimer (41622).  And bringing the possibility of having a LEGO Jaws set on the table is quite revealing on the part of LEGO. Does it mean that LEGO has something in the works coming from this direction? We just have to wait and see.

In the meantime, we might need to wait a little longer before we can see the 150th LEGO BrickHeadz set under the Star Wars theme. And with so many present and future Star Wars candidates to choose from, it will be quite a challenge for LEGO to zero-in on the best SW character to fill in the commemorative spot.

So who do you think from the galaxy far, far away will be honored as the 150th LEGO BrickHeadz set? Which Star Wars characters do you think will eventually win this title? Or are you even happy with the results? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
