Confundo, Crucio, Deletrius!

First introduced by TBB’s very own Iain Heath, the Rejectz are back in magical style with these new figures by Mel Finelli. Everybody loves Rejectz because they’re the “ugdorable” alternative to Brickheadz. This special line-up just for Potterheads features Harry Pooper, Herwhynie, Ron Weeeweee and Dumbledaft.

New BrickHeadz from The LEGO Ninjago Movie now available [News]

Unsurprisingly, LEGO is going all out promoting The LEGO Ninjago Movie, which made $20.4 million in its first weekend (compare to $53 million for The LEGO Batman Movie earlier this year or the original LEGO Movie at $69 million). Following quickly on the heels of the newly revealed Ninjago Movie wave 2 set images, LEGO has released a pair of BrickHeadz characters from the movie, 41487 Lloyd and 41487 Master Wu. Both sets, which will only be available through the end of 2017, retail for $9.99 US/$12.99 CAD and are available in LEGO Stores and online already.

Master Wu is built from 89 pieces, and features his straw hat, kimono, and walking stick. Master Wu’s eyes and cloak toggles are printed.

Cloud and Sephiroth from Final Fantasy as LEGO BrickHeadz

One of my favorite video games of all time is Final Fantasy VII, released more than 20 years ago on the Sony PlayStation console. Such iconic characters must inevitably undergo the BrickHeadz treatment, which works very well for the anime styling of character designer Tetsuya Nomura. LEGO builder Ben Fong has captured the look of the two antagonists Cloud Strife and Sephiroth as they’re depicted in the 2005 film Final Fantasy: Advent Children.

Cloud wields his enormous Buster Sword, and Ben has even included the stud in Cloud’s left ear.

Deadpool and Cable break the fourth wall into the realm of BrickHeadz

Amazing fan-made BrickHeadz keep popping up, covering every conceivable screen franchise. And now Adam Dodge adds the comic pair of Deadpool and Cable to the fray. While both of these are great, the Cable is outstanding. Aside from the clever parts usage on the shoulder pads, the use of official printed pieces is a masterstroke; that’s a pair of printed piston pieces which form a belt and the use of the X-Men “X” symbol from one of the Mighty Micro sets.

Lynn MinMay, Macross space celebrity [Instructions]

Lynn MinMay from the Robotech/Macross anime series is brought to life by SPARKART! in a modified Brickheadz doll. The styling emphasises the head over other features, with her eyes capturing that genuine anime sparkle. Below you’ll find the parts list and instruction guide to build your very own singing space celebrity.

The Knights of the Cubed Table

The classic LEGO Castle themes, like Forestman or Wolfpack, charmed fans with their simple and straightforward designs — faction colors and plain symbols providing the only distinctive elements for each clan. IamKritch makes the most of the styling, reviving two heroes of the past — a couple of fancy Brickheadz warriors. These guys look adorable with their small bow and sword!

RoboCop vs Terminator: Who’s the better BrickHead?

Fans continue to create their own versions of BrickHeadz for the community to enjoy, and tankm brings us RoboCop and the Terminator (who have shared a crossover comic book series, for those who didn’t know). RoboCop wins my vote — I prefer his overall design. But the Terminator is packed with nice details such as the subtle sloping around the nose area, great greebling in the head, and smart use of hinge pieces for the “teeth”.

Celebrate the new Ragnarok trailer with a classic Thor Brickhead

Love or hate Brickheadz, seeing the community create their own versions of characters has been a treat (see our recent roundup of some recent good ones). And now builder tommilorenzo has given the blocky treatment to Thor. Although, this is the more classical version of Thor, and not the more recent Marvel incarnation you’ve seen in the newest Ragnarok trailer.

When fanz take matterz into their own handz

The BrickHeadz character style has firmly taken root amongst the builder community, as evidenced by an ever-growing collection of fan-created BrickHeadz models that frequently exhibit more creativity, fun and ingenuity than some of the heavily printing reliant exclusives that LEGO is making convention-goers stand in sweaty lines for hours to acquire. Taking inspiration from some memorable movie characters, here are a few excellent examples that came across our desk recently:

Holtzmann and Slimer by James zhan

Veni, vidi, aedificavi

Brickheadz builds never fail to impress me — just when you think there’s only so many ways you can represent characters, along comes another that blows your mind yet again. Julius Caeser’s embodiment built by John Cheng together with the backdrop is almost a perfect tabletop display for an inspiring corporate dictator.

No general is complete without his loyal soldier, which is a great companion build to conquer Rome.

Tiny legends: Freddy Mercury and Brian May, BrickHeadz style

Thanks to this LEGO tribute to the legendary rock group Queen by Krzysztof J, I’m singing softly to myself, affirming my role as a champion and contemplating Galileo. Tiny Freddy is resplendent in his iconic yellow jacket, rocking that mic like no other, hand raised. The suave hairstyle is genius, much like the inspiring persona. And Brian? That hair. Positioning all of those 1×1 round plates must have been mind-numbing, but the end result is spectacular. His guitar is perfect. It’s a little detail, but man: those bases are lovely. I would love to see LEGO’s BrickHeadz line use those!
