Thanks to Hoth Bricks, we now have a closer look at these new 2019 LEGO BrickHeadz Seasonal sets, starting with a festive Party Clown, a Valentines Puppy, and a Dragon Dance Guy that marks the celebration of the Chinese New Year.

The back portion of box art for the Valentines Puppy also shows the rest of the seasonal 2019 LEGO BrickHeadz line-up which includes a Chick (40350), Ghost (40351), and what looks like to be a Christmas triple-pack that shows a Reindeer, Elf and Elfie (40353) collectively.

From the looks of things, LEGO seems to have pretty much laid out its plans for the LEGO BrickHeadz theme next year, and based on these set numbers, it looks like there are still more reveals waiting for these chibi brick creations. What do you think brick fans, are you happy on how these LEGO BrickHeadz sets turned out? Let us know in the comments section below.

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.

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.

Make Your Brick or Treats More Fun with this Custom LEGO BrickHeadz Brick-O’-Lantern

They might be ending soon, but the appeal of the LEGO BrickHeadz theme is still very much alive and kicking, especially with this original creation from LEGO fan builder stormythos. To celebrate the most ghoulishly fun day of the year, stormythos came up with his own BrickHeadz version of a Brick-O’-Lantern which will make Freddy and Jason blush with envy. These two horror icons by the way, were also nicely rendered in LEGO BrickHeadz form by stormythos, so you may want to check his Instagram account and hit that like button.

BrickHeadz No.65 – Brick-o’-Lantern (‘Go Brick Me’) — Free instructions available – link in bio! — To celebrate 2,000 Followers and Halloween, I decided to make a spooky BrickHeadz using only pieces from the official ‘Go Brick Me’ set! The idea behind this is so that anyone with the ‘Go Brick Me’ set can build this BrickHeadz themselves and add it to their collection – just in time for Halloween! If anyone does build this, please show me by either tagging me, using #stormythos or directly messaging me! — Big thanks to @brickheadz_by_niels & @lukesbrickheadz for helping me with the instructions! — #lego #brickheadz #gobrickme #legos #legobrickheadz #legostagram #legogram #legophotography #legomoc #moc #legoart #legoquickreview #instalego #afol #legophoto #funko #funkopop #halloween #spooky #spooktober #october #trickortreat #trickrtreat #minifigures #jackolantern #pumpkinpatch #pumpkin #pumpkincarving

The best part of this is that stormythos was kind enough to share the building instructions for free. If you want a quick and worry-free building experience in making this custom LEGO BrickHeadz Brick-O’-Lantern, then you’ll be pleased to know that all the parts needed to build this MOC can be found in LEGO BrickHeadz Go Brick Me (41597). If you want to get the exact same pieces that stormythos used, then getting the Go Brick Me set is the sure way to go. It is still available at LEGO Shop@Home and at your nearest LEGO Store, and now might be the best time to get it since you can still qualify for Double VIP points which will be ending today. However, if you already have the existing pieces then all you have to do is to get those hands busy.

You may download the building instructions for this custom LEGO BrickHeadz Brick-O’-Lantern right here. Thanks once again to stormythos for being kind enough to share these instructions to all brick-loving people.

Is it the End for the LEGO BrickHeadz Theme?

New York Comic Con 2018 has just wrapped up, and it’s quite disappointing that LEGO was literally absent from the said Comic Con. Unlike last year when LEGO’s presence is somehow felt with its offer of new LEGO BrickHeadz – an NYCC exclusive and a dozen of new 2018 BrickHeadz sets at that time – this year’s LEGO-related NYCC events are close to none, with a couple of exceptions particularly from the LEGO DC Super Villains video game booth and the announcement of a new LEGO Spider-Man animated special. To add, LEGO’s noticeable absence from NYCC does not bode quite well for the future of one its popular sets, which might somehow signal the end for the LEGO BrickHeadz theme.

Though LEGO’s lack of promotions for the LEGO BrickHeadz line during this year’s NYCC may not immediately mean that the theme is about to be cancelled, we should note that LEGO has traditionally utilized the comic book conventions as a means of launching the 2017 and 2018 BrickHeadz sets. It is quite puzzling therefore that LEGO has decided to skip NYCC and to be quite mum about the future of this relatively new theme. Other than the release of the LEGO BrickHeadz Homer Simpson and Krusty the Clown (41632), and the rumored Gravity Falls BrickHeadz, there’s nothing much to expect from the theme as of the moment.

The LEGO BrickHeadz Homer Simpson and Krusty the Clown (41632) is so far, the last BrickHeadz set to be officially announced for this year.

As it seems, another nail in the coffin that may hint on the end of the LEGO BrickHeadz theme came from fellow LEGO news source, The Brick Fan, when he pointed out to an unverified piece of info coming from one of his readers. According to the report, the information came from a local LEGOLAND Discovery cashier in Michigan. At that time, all the LEGO BrickHeadz set were reportedly being cleared out from the store including the ones that were just recently released. The unnamed cashier also mentioned that the theme will be ending this year, hence the need for the clearing out sale.

I know that these are somewhat circumstantial and unverified evidences, but I couldn’t help but consider the possibility of LEGO pulling the plug for the LEGO BrickHeadz line. In terms of being lucrative or not, LEGO is still yet to release actual sales figures for the BrickHeadz theme to somehow determine if LEGO will eventually decide to let go of this brick-built chibi trend. Until we get an official press release from LEGO, then it will be wise to consider this piece of news as speculative at best.

So what’s your take on this brick fans? Do you think that it’s the end for the LEGO BrickHeadz theme? Share what you think in the comments below.

Rumor Time: Are We to See LEGO Minecraft Buildable Figures in 2019?

There are probably not a lot of franchises licensed by LEGO to make products of, that does well with a “building and construction” theme all on its own. One of those rare properties is the iconic sandbox game Minecraft by Mojang and Microsoft Studios, which does feature lots of building.

Aside from the conventional play sets, LEGO has also fiddled with buildable Minecraft figures in its BrickHeadz line, particularly the latest Steve and Creeper (41612) dual pack. But apparently LEGO is planning more. That’s what this latest rumor courtesy of Brick Fanatics says: a lineup of new LEGO Minecraft buildable figures is set to arrive in 2019.

No specific details have been revealed of course, but speculation has it that this new range of LEGO Minecraft buildable figures will boast a hybrid building system taking elements from “Constraction” sets and System pieces. The resulting figures are said to stand about six feet inches tall.

The LEGO Minecraft line started in 2012, growing out of a fiercely supported submission on LEGO Ideas: Minecraft Micro World (21102) based on an idea by Mojang themselves. The line has grown since then, thanks naturally to the perfect sync of sorts between the two brands’ building and construction themes.

As always, we would like to remind our readers that any news featured on The Brick Show that is flat-out indicated as a rumor, will stay that way until The LEGO Group makes an official announcement about it. For now, if you’re a Minecraft aficionado and haven’t picked up the LEGO BrickHeadz Steve and Creeper (41612) yet, be sure to check it out at shop.LEGO.com.

LEGO BrickHeadz Thanksgiving Turkey (40273) and Mr. and Mrs. Claus (40274) Officially Announced

Earlier this month, LEGO has revealed its first seasonal BrickHeadz set just in time for Halloween. Now that details of the LEGO BrickHeadz Witch (40272) are out, it is just a matter of time before the next seasonal themed BrickHeadz set will make its debut. Thankfully, it didn’t take long for LEGO to do that, and as a welcome surprise, they didn’t just reveal one, but two new BrickHeadz sets that we can expect until the Christmas holiday season. Earlier today, LEGO servers have been updated to include a listing both for the LEGO BrickHeadz Thanksgiving Turkey (40273) and Mr. and Mrs. Claus (40274).

Both sets are now listed at shop.LEGO.com, and will be available beginning October 1, 2018. The Thanksgiving Turkey (40273) follows a similar design from its predecessors – the set contains 114 pieces and features a turkey flanked with several accessories such as white fence pieces, carrots, a pumpkin and some vegetation.

The Mr. and Mrs. Claus (40274) set is the first LEGO BrickHeadz seasonal set that comes as a dual-pack that comes in at 341 pieces. I personally like this build, specially considering how the designers were able to add the similar BrickHeadz accessories on each of the character even as it is bundled as a dual-pack. That cozy, Christmas vibe is perfectly captured in this all so familiar BrickHeadz format.

LEGO BrickHeadz Newt Scamander and Gellert Grindelwald (41631) Set Officially Revealed

A new LEGO BrickHeadz duo will soon finally find their way from the MACUSA to your nearest local LEGO store.

Numbered #76 and #77 respectively, this dual-pack set comes in at 247 pieces and will retail for the same price of $19.99 like other previous LEGO BrickHeadz dual sets.  In my opinion, these are one of the best LEGO BrickHeadz sets that I’ve seen so far, with a very accurate brick rendition of their hair and clothes while still retaining that particular BrickHeadz vibe.

It is a welcome surprise that the LEGO BrickHeadz Newt Scamander and Gellert Grindelwald (41631) set is slated for an early release of October 1, ahead of the film’s November 16 release. Check out LEGO’s press release for more information, courtesy of The Brothers Brick.

LEGO BrickHeadz Homer Simpson and Krusty the Clown (41632) Revealed

Just two weeks ago, we reported on a rumor that the Simpsons might make a comeback in LEGO brick form which points to the fact that the licensed theme is not over yet, even after the demise of the now discontinued LEGO Dimensions. This rumor has now been put to rest with LEGO finally revealing and confirming that the Simpsons patriarch and the mischievous clown of Springfield now have their official LEGO BrickHeadz version. In a tweet sent out by the LEGO Group just a few minutes ago, we now have our first look at the LEGO BrickHeadz Homer Simpson and Krusty the Clown (41632) dual-pack set.

The tweet mentioned no specific date of release but our best bet will be sometime in January, as this is expected to be part of LEGO’s 2019 wave of BrickHeadz sets. This BrickHeadz version of Homer and Krusty the Clown is numbered #78 and #79 respectively, and is expected to retail like its other dual-pack predecessors for $20 USD. I like how Homer turned out with his signature donut and bulging tummy. His LEGO designers even went far in adding the usual antenna pieces to re-create those lone strands of hair on his head. Krusty’s brick-built hair on the other hand, is superbly designed with those teal pieces ingeniously stacked to recreate his iconic clown wig. Needless to say, this is another LEGO BrickHeadz set that I’m looking forward to have.

The LEGO BrickHeadz Homer Simpson and Krusty the Clown (41632) set is slated to arrive in early 2019 and is expected to be joined by the another dual-pack set, which is the LEGO BrickHeadz Gellert Grindelwald and Newt Scamander (41631).
