It contains 246 pieces and will be available October 1st and retail for US $19.99 | CAN $24.99 | UK £17.99.

These Gundam builds would make for great sets

Based on designs from the original Mobile Suit Gundam series, Rokan Cheung has built the main Gundam mech head and a BrickHeadz version of its pilot, Amuro Rey. A variety of slope and angled pieces have been used to create the complex shapes of the head. Corner panels are stacked together to form the vent sections on the sides of the helmet. The BrickHeadz build has some great features, such as croissants representing curls in the fringe and tooth pieces portraying sharp-pointed boots. With official LEGO set releases such as Voltron and Optimus Prime in recent years, maybe there’s potential that something like Rokan’s models might appear in the future.

Today LEGO Con 2022 — LEGO’s online fan event targeted at families — brought the reveal of a huge lineup of sets from a variety of themes. We’ve already featured some of the sets, but further highlights include Marvel Infinity Saga’s 76218 Sanctum Sanctorum, a 2,708-piece, modular-style version of Doctor Strange’s mystical hideout as seen in Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Only a single set has been revealed so far, 75574 Toruk Makto & Tree of Souls, though we expect more to come. LEGO also unveiled a new mosaic set, 31207 Floral Art, which features a variety of flower patterns. Other sets revealed include BrickHeadz and Minecraft.

Go Go Gadget Brick Separator!

Aido K presents a LEGO Brickheadz inspired build celebrating the fantastic Cartoon Classic:  Inspector Gadget! But ‘Gadget hasn’t appeared on his own, the team is here with Penny and Brain along for the ride to ensure the great Inspector doesn’t get into (too much) trouble!

Go go gadget brick separator

Aido captures the stylistic approach of both Brickheadz and Inspector Gadget here along with the necessary appendages befitting the great detective, with each gadget representing key moments from the series.

I love how Inspector Gadget’s quizzical expression and elongated face have been captured perfectly here, too, whilst keeping to the design of a Brickheadz which is then carried on through both Penny and the loveable dog, Brain whose sat-to-attention pose is wonderfully realized in LEGO.

I hope you’ve enjoyed exploring these delightful characters and celebrating some cartoon nostalgia because this post will self-destruct in 5, 4, 3…

Building better BrickHeadz with bionics.

SKcheung73 takes us back to 1970s, when the closest thing pop-culture had to a cinematic shared universe was the sci-fi duo of TV shows, The Bionic Woman and The Six Million Dollar Man. One of the recurring obstacles for those heroes were the Fembots: a series of lifelike androids that could pass as real people, until their face coverings got knocked off in battle, revealing the robotics underneath. The well-greebled robot face that SKcheung73 has achieved is definitely the highlight of this build. But I’m equally impressed with the era-appropriate hair and wardrobe. Dig that excellent use of a minifigure diving flipper as a groovy neck scarf.

Three new Obi-Wan Kenobi LEGO Star Wars sets revealed, including Jedi Starfighter and BrickHeadz [News]

Straight from the deserts of Tatooine, LEGO has premiered three new Star Wars sets today, all of them based on the Obi-Wan Kenobi series set to debut Friday, 5/27, on Disney+. These sets bring back some familiar faces from past Star Wars ventures beyond the titular Jedi, whether it’s a new Darth Vader Brickheadz design, or the Inquisitors of Star Wars Rebels fame in a new Krennic-esque transport. But the big milestone for LEGO in these sets appears in 75333 LEGO® Star Wars™ Obi-Wan Kenobi’s Jedi Starfighter™. Not only does this set offer an updated version of the starfighter, but it also includes Taun We, the first-ever Kaminoan minifigure outside of a video game. While the BrickHeadz set isn’t available for preorder, the two ships can be purchased now on LEGO’s website for shipment on August 1st.

We’ve got more on these new Star Wars sets below, and you can also check out the other upcoming LEGO releases for Summer 2022:

Couple of hosers here, eh?

Good day, and welcome to the Great White North! Here we’ve got a beautiful LEGO BrickHeadz build by Josephine Monterosso featuring our favorite fictional Canadian brothers, Bob and Doug McKenzie. Played by Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas respectively, the duo were featured on the Canadian SCTV in the 80’s, as well as the feature film Strange Brew. And Josephine does a great job of recreating their countenances in this blocky medium. I love the 1×2 jumper plate used for their mouths, locked in a heated discussion about long underwear and back bacon. Then there’s the ingenious use of the minifig pom-pom for the top of Doug’s tuque, and tires as his earmuffs. But my absolute favorite detail has to be the angled plates used for their jacket collars! It’s so fitting given Brickheadz dimensions. And, well, if you disagree, you can take off, eh!

Spice up your life with LEGO BrickHeadz 40548 Spice Girls Tribute [Review]

Let’s take a step back to 1996 – an innocent time when the world was full of boy bands, teen magazines, and MTV still played music videos. An unsuspecting world was informed in no uncertain terms what they really, really wanted: to zigazig-ah with the Spice Girls, courtesy of their first single, “Wannabe”. Since then, the Spice Girls have cemented themselves as a cultural phenomenon through music, movies, and, now, their very own LEGO BrickHeadz. Released as part of a trend of music-themed sets, like 21329 Fender Stratocaster Guitar and 31204 Elvis Presley Mosaic, the new Spice Girls Tribute BrickHeadz focus hit hard on mid-90s pop music nostalgia. But how does the set stack up against other BrickHeadz? Let’s dive in and take a look. 40548 Spice Girls Tribute will be available on March 1 from the LEGO Shop for US $49.99 | CAN $64.99 | UK £44.99.

LEGO BrickHeadz 40549 Demogorgon and Eleven – Get ready for some Stranger Things [Review]

Few characters sweep the world like “Eleven” from Stranger Things. Since its premiere in 2016, Millie Bobby Brown’s immensely quirky character has proven to be iconic in every season. Meanwhile, the feature creature of the first season inspired dread and fear in all of us. Hailing from the mysterious and grotesque “Upside Down” version of our own world, the “Demogorgon” made a perfect Eldritch beast for the beginning of the series. Despite the immediate success of the series, it’s surprising that LEGO took until the third season to release the award-winning set 75810 The Upside Down. With a summer 2022 release still possible for season 4, LEGO seems to be getting ahead of the hype with two new BrickHeadz. The LEGO BrickHeadz 40549 Demogorgon and Eleven will be available from the LEGO Shop (US $19.99 | CAN $24.99 | UK £17.99) on February 1.
