There are few American landmarks more iconic than Lady Liberty herself, so it is no wonder she has inspired so many LEGO builders to pay her tribute in brick. This famous statue even became an official LEGO product in the form of LEGO Architecture 21042 Statue of Liberty, which was a good source for sand green elements. This adorable BrickHeadz style model by baby lego uses some of those parts, along with a scaled down base that was inspired by the official set. She looks more than ready to welcome minifigures into New Brick City!
Christmas may be over, but Buddy the elf is the kind of guy you want to hang out with all year round! This BrickHeadz rendering by Kendall Brown (headzsets) isn’t quite possible in real life with available part colors, but it sure is cute! Buddy’s pal, Mr. Narwhal, comes to the surface at the beginning of the movie to wish him luck in finding his real father. He’s a pretty adorable character, and looks fabulous in LEGO form.

The blocky Brickheadz building style meets classic Japanese anime in this cubist LEGO rendition of San from Studio Ghibli’s Princess Mononoke. Immediately recognisable to fans of the movie, Nathan DeCastro‘s model captures all the essential elements of the famous character. Those streaks of red makeup are perfect, tapering to a point thanks to the use of curved 1×1 tiles, and the white fur headdress and the necklace are excellent. Now all this needs is a giant wolf built to the appropriate scale!
There has always been something very special about LEGO Seasonal sets. It’s not just the subject matter of the sets, but also their unusual designs and formats that look nothing like regular retail LEGO themes. In 2019, LEGO will be making holidays even more special with a stunning lineup of Chinese Lunar New Year LEGO sets. Although these might be only available in China and the rest of the Asia Pacific region, there’s still an excellent way to take part in these celebrations — the new LEGO BrickHeadz 40354 Dragon Dance Guy brings a festive holiday mood in a very funny format.
LEGO BrickHeadz theme has shown itself to be a very diverse collection of building figures. Now, first official pictures of the upcoming 2019 sets reveal even more eye-catching characters including one straight from the Chinese New Year festival. As usual, price tags and availability are subjects for future announcements.

The possibilities of the LEGO BrickHeadz format seem to be truly unlimited. These funny characters can make any story better, even a beloved one, as proved by Cindy Su with her recent recreation of the most heart-piercing scene from Titanic. And once you have wiped tears away, you will notice a very unusual upgrade to the figures: movable arms. These are made with some pretty rare arm elements from space themes of the 90s, but fit amazingly well into the modern BrickHeadz style.
Builder Bruce Lowell built a bust of Boba Fett using a technique he made popular known as the Lowell Sphere but left it unfinished 5 years ago. It was only now that he picked up the recent Boba Fett BrickHeadz which came with the 2×2 printed triangle pieces that it made sense to revisit the project. Sometimes you just need the right part to come along to inspire you to finish an outstanding build. The result speaks for itself with the instantly recognisable bounty hunter from a galaxy far far away.
Last month Palixa and the Bricks brought us a fantastic take on Futurama’s supporting cast in the BrickHeadz style. This time around, again working with her husband, she’s completed a second wave of models, depicting the TV show’s main cast in the same exquisite fashion.
In Greek mythology, Medusa is a slithering monster with a stone-cold gaze. The tables have now turned for the Greek gorgon, with Koen Zwanenburg having transformed her into a static LEGO BrickHeadz character. Though often portrayed as a hideous monster, Koen’s version is adorable. The sculpting of the body is particularly nice, with the tail from Jabba the Hutt being used to great effect. Her hair is comprised of several snake head elements, which look practically made for the character. It would be great to see other mythological creatures receive a BrickHeadz treatment this nice!
