What makes a LEGO model special often comes down to an inspired design choice. In the case of En Zoo’s Laelariel Hall it’s all about the use of colour. The build is a solid medieval construction utilising many tried and tested stone wall and roof techniques. What lifts it above the average are the exquisite splashes of blue bricks throughout. The main walls are veined with light blue and 1×1 round tiled studs. Layered in sequence, they imbue the building with a sense of magic. Accents of dark blue in the roof echo the marbling elsewhere. It’s a clever choice that transports the scene into its own fantastical realm.
It’s looking more and more like each LEGO theme will be getting the BrickHeadz treatment, with the reveal today of the first official box art and product photos of the BrickHeadz from the next installment in the Jurassic Park franchise, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (due in theaters this June). Following the combo-pack release of two characters in a single set we first saw with 41489 Rey & Kylo Ren last year, 41614 Owen & Blue features the protagonist played by Chris Pratt alongside a brick-built CGI dinosaur. The set includes 234 pieces, and we’ll bring you an update when we have a firm release date and price.
Blue is the first non-humanoid character released as a BrickHeadz (even the seasonal BrickHeadz like the Valentine’s Day Bee and Easter Rabbit are fairly anthropomorphic), so it will be interesting to see how LEGO recreates other animals and creatures in the future.
