LEGO Seasonal BrickHeadz Scarecrow (40352) Revealed

After unveiling this year’s Halloween-inspired LEGO BrickHeadz Ghost (40351), we now have another seasonal set to watch out for just in time for Thanksgiving. This came in as a surprise actually, and thanks to Promobricks we now have a closer look at the LEGO Seasonal BrickHeadz Scarecrow (40352).

If you recall, the box art of the recent LEGO BrickHeadz Ghost and those after it featured a gap between their respective box numbers, leading us to think that there is another set that is included in this seasonal series. As it turns out, we have another BrickHeadz set slated for release just before the holiday-themed triple pack LEGO BrickHeadz  Reindeer, Elf, and Elfie (40353) arrives.

Other than these images, we’re yet to see the piece count for the LEGO BrickHeadz Scarecrow (40352). Like other BrickHeadz in its category, we can expect it to retail for $9.99 USD once it arrives in October just in time for Thanksgiving. For this year, we already saw the LEGO BrickHeadz Valentine’s Puppy (40349) and Easter Chick (40350) which are both currently available.

To know what’s up and currently available in the LEGO BrickHeadz theme, be sure to check with LEGO Shop@Home or at your local LEGO Store. Thanks once again to Promobricks for the heads-up.

The LEGO BrickHeadz Ghost (40351) Is An Early Halloween Treat

Following the trend of LEGO BrickHeadz seasonal sets and the promise of more BrickHeadz sets to come in future, LEGO has now updated its servers to include a couple of official images of its next signature brick collectibles. We now have a look at the next seasonal set to arrive in LEGO Stores in September – the LEGO BrickHeadz Ghost (40351).

LEGO BrickHeadz Ghost (40351)

The LEGO BrickHeadz Ghost (40351) comes in at 136 pieces and is expected to retail for $9.99 USD. This new seasonal set follows the Easter Chick (40350) which is still available at LEGO Shop@Home if you’re still interested in adding this to your collection. I like how this Ghost turned out, with all the challenges of creating a recognizable character (in this case, with all the curves and design challenges of this Ghost figure) and adopting the distinct BrickHeadz style to it, I have to say that it’s not an easy feat. It was also nice of LEGO to throw in some specific Halloween-themed parts such as the pumpkin head and the bat figure.

I’m also looking forward to this year’s holiday-inspired BrickHeadz which is the Reindeer, Elf and Elfie (40353). Its a sort of a megapack if I may use the word where you can get 3 characters in 1 set. This will be most likely available sometime in October or early November. For the rest of sets under the LEGO BrickHeadz theme, be sure to check out LEGO’s online store.

LEGO BrickHeadz Jabba the Hut and Salacious Crumb (75232) Rumored for 2020

The LEGO BrickHeadz theme had its share of ups and downs since its debut three years ago, and it looks like it’s on its way for another comeback in 2020. Thanks to the eagle-eyed scouts of Star Wars fan site Rebelscum, we are now convinced that a LEGO BrickHeadz Jabba the Hut and Salacious Crumb (75232) set is now on its way.

Jabba the hut 1

Rebelscum gathered the pieces of evidence to see if they point to this possibility, starting with third-party retailer Amazon France. Now it can be argued that this particular listing does not really say or hint anything about the famed Hutt crime lord coming to the LEGO BrickHeadz theme. However, a closer look at the set’s piece count (coming in at 240 pieces) and box dimensions (19.1 x 14.1 x 7.1 cm) suggest that this upcoming LEGO BrickHeadz set will be a dual pack, similar to what LEGO released in the past. Prominent twin-packs in the Star Wars subtheme of the LEGO BrickHeadz line include the Boba Fett and Han Solo in Carbonite (41498) set released as an SDCC 2017 exclusive, and the Luke Skywalker and Yoda (41627) released last year.

Salacious Crumb 1

And on what could be the most convincing piece of evidence that suggests that a LEGO BrickHeadz Jabba the Hut and Salacious Crumb (75232) set is happening is from the theme’s lead LEGO designer himself, Marcos Bessa. In an interview at the LEGO Innovation House in May last year, Marcos made mention of  “a certain lizard creature-ish bad guy” was in the works at that time. Eventually, challenges on how to re-create its “weird form” which is quite the “opposite of the proportions of what the Brickheadz are,” have now been hurdled. I know this slight reveal is unintentional on the part of Marcos, but considering the specific details that he gave back then, I couldn’t help but think of Jabba as the most likely candidate.

Whatever is the case the LEGO BrickHeadz theme is still holding on, and with more licensed names poised to be included in its ever-growing line, I wouldn’t mind if a LEGO BrickHeadz Jabba the Hut and Salacious Crumb (75232) set will be added to the mix. For the meantime, be sure the check out the rest of the LEGO BrickHeadz currently available at LEGO Shop@Home.

Are We To See More LEGO BrickHeadz Sets in 2020?

Fans of the 3-inch tall, brick-collectibles may soon have more reasons to be glad in 2020. The LEGO BrickHeadz theme had its share of highs and lows since it was introduced in 2016. At that time, the majority of LEGO fans were quite divided on how they should appreciate the blocky, bobblehead-like replicas of their favorite LEGO characters – whether they were original LEGO characters or licensed ones. It also came to the extent where this theme was rumored to be ending in 2019 due to reported underwhelming sales. However, the tide seems to have turned when in December last year, LEGO surprisingly announced 8 new BrickHeadz to watch out for in 2019.

Now that the majority of the 2019 LEGO BrickHeadz were already revealed, and with Lady Liberty (40367) as the most recent offering, fans are now pondering the nagging question once again: are we really seeing the end of this unique LEGO theme? Well actually, the answer may be quite the opposite.

The LEGO BrickHeadz Lady Liberty (40367) is set to be released on June 1, 2019.

In a most recent interview by Zusammengebaut’s Andres Lehman together with LEGO BrickHeadz creator and designer Marcos Bessa, the latter has confirmed that there are still plenty of these blocky collectibles being worked in the pipeline just in time for their debut in 2020.

Andres was fortunate enough to meet Marcos at the 2019 LEGO Fan Media Days in Billund to discuss the future of this LEGO theme. Marcos eventually revealed that fans should clearly expect more LEGO BrickHeadz sets by next year and he was careful enough not to spill the beans on what they’ll be. From the looks of things, LEGO seems to be moving forward with original designs while continuing its seasonal offerings. In fact, BrickHeadz started 2019 with a wave of original creations such as the Birthday Clown (40348), the Dragon Dance Guy (40354) and a handful of seasonal sets. Furthermore, according to Marcos, more seasonal sets will be introduced in the second half of this year. We can also expect that LEGO will continue to offer carefully selected licensed themes that will hopefully appeal to a diverse range of LEGO fans. The popularity of these sets was likened by Marcos to those of the LEGO collectible minifigures and hopes to see that the LEGO BrickHeadz line will win more fans and LEGO enthusiasts.

So what do you think about this brick fans? Are you excited to see more BrickHeadz sets? What licensed character are you hoping to have the LEGO brick treatment? Let me know what you think in the comments below.

LEGO BrickHeadz Statue of Liberty (40367) Images Released

It looks like there are more reasons to celebrate the 4th of July for LEGO fans in the US. As we know by now, the LEGO BrickHeadz theme is still going strong this year, especially with the introduction of its new line of 2019 seasonal sets. Thanks to Promobricks, we now have our first look at some of the official images of the latest LEGO BrickHeadz Statue of Liberty (40367).

FYI, hints of this new BrickHeadz set was first spotted on German LEGO retailer website, Brickmerge, where the LEGO BrickHeadz Statue of Liberty (40367) set is listed, coming in at 153 pieces. Like other BrickHeadz sets, this will most likely retail for $9.99 USD. However, what could be the main selling point of this set for LEGO fans is the fact that it mostly consist of those highly desired Sand Green pieces. Few LEGO sets feature this particular color such as its larger counterpart LEGO Architecture Statue of Liberty (21042), the LEGO Movie 2 Welcome to Apocalypseburg (70840) and the LEGO Minecraft Ocean Monument (21136).

Unfortunately, there are some rumors going around that this latest set will also be a regional exclusive, only to be available in the US in time of the 4th of July celebrations. There’s hope though since we have recently seen how LEGO ruled in favor of LEGO fans with regards to the availability of certain regional exclusives. So there is still a chance for avid completionists outside of the US to have their own LEGO BrickHeadz Statue of Liberty (40367) set after 3 to 6 months. We just have to wait and see if LEGO will follow through on its promise.

Thanks once again to Promobricks for the heads-up.

The LEGO Movie 2 BrickHeadz Sets Revealed: Building Instructions Now Available

We’re literally counting the days away before the LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part finally hit theaters on Friday, and LEGO is building up on the excitement with this next reveal. We know that there will be additional LEGO Movie 2 sets coming this summer and this time, LEGO has uploaded its next round of building instructions via its servers, pointing to the fact that our next LEGO BrickHeadz sets will be dedicated to the sequel’s main characters. They’re not listed yet at shop.LEGO.com as of this posting, but LEGO was kind enough to upload the building instructions for these LEGO Movie 2 BrickHeadz, particularly, Emmet (41634), WyldStyle (41635), Benny (41636), and Sweet Mayhem (41637).

Most LEGO fans will probably agree that one of the selling points of these LEGO Movie 2 BrickHeadz sets are the unique, printed parts that come with them. Benny (41636) for example features a unique 1×2 tile that features a worn out, classic Space logo print. This nostalgic tile is a centerpiece for any LEGO Space fan and collector. Sweet Mayhem’s BrickHeadz version is also noteworthy – I like the particular details on her helmet, and the unique parts that go with this set as well, such as the white laser pistol and the new bright purple heart tile piece, both were first introduced in LEGO Movie 2 sets.

Since their building instructions are now listed online, we can expect that these LEGO Movie 2 BrickHeadz sets will be released soon. Will keep a close eye on these sets, and let us know if you spot them on toy shelves. Thanks to Hoth Bricks for the heads up.

The LEGO BrickHeadz Seasonal Easter Chick (40350) First Official Images Released

Third-party German LEGO store site Brickmerge has updated its listing to now include a closer look at the second BrickHeadz set following this year’s Valentine Puppy (40349). Though there is no further description given, the images for the LEGO BrickHeadz Seasonal Easter Chick (40350) kind of speak for itself. Coming in at a vibrant yellow color scheme, the BrickHeadz Seasonal Easter Chick (40350) also has its share of interesting LEGO pieces. Of particular interest to me are the purple and yellow minifigure heads used for the flowers, plus the egg pieces that usually comes with these kinds of seasonal sets.

As mentioned, we don’t have any further information beyond these images such as the Easter Chick’s piece count and date of availability. However, we can expect it to come with a $9.99 price tag to be available sometime towards the end of February similar to previously released sets. The LEGO BrickHeadz Seasonal Easter Chick (40350) is also joined by other soon-to-be-revealed seasonal sets such as the Ghost (40351), and Reindeer, Elf, and Elfie (40353). The LEGO BrickHeadz Valentine’s Puppy (40349) on the other hand is now available at shop.LEGO.com just in case you want to take a look.

LEGO Store in Disney Springs Joins Celebration of Mickey Mouse’s 90th Anniversary

The year 1928 was the year Walter Elias Disney introduced what would become his most iconic creation in popular entertainment to the world: the big cheese himself, Mickey Mouse. This came in the form of the animated short Steamboat Willie, which premiered in November 18 of that year. What do you know, November 18 is this Sunday, and 2018 marks the celebration of Mickey Mouse’s 90th anniversary.

Obviously, the Disney Company is celebrating 90 years of Mickey Mouse. And perhaps the most prominent event in paying tribute to the name bearer of the House of Mouse can be found in Walt Disney World in Orlando. At their Disney Springs commercial complex, special Mickey merchandise and food items are being offered ahead of Sunday.

Even the Disney Springs LEGO Store is getting in on the Mickey Mouse vibe. They’re spearheading a massive brick-building effort to create a tribute mural that will showcase the various milestones of the king of Disney characters, as established in the Kingdom Hearts video game series.

Ahead of Mickey Mouse’s 90th anniversary, LEGO has also released some highly collectible sets in the form of BrickHeadz for not just Mickey (41624) but also Minnie Mouse (41625). The rumors that the BrickHeadz line may eventually be discontinued would only add to the potential value of these two LEGO sets.

LEGO BrickHeadz Mickey Mouse (41624) and Minnie Mouse (41625)

Interestingly, a Steamboat Willie set is up for contention in the Second 2018 Review Stage for LEGO Ideas. The results won’t be revealed until early next year, but that too would’ve been a nice addition to the LEGO contributions for celebrating 90 years of Mickey.
