Builder Per Martinson applies the characters’ familiar colour tones to a simple build that’s instantly recognisable. Instructions are provided to add this to your custom BrickHeadz collection.

I have the Powerrrrrr!!!!

I still remember He-Man and the Masters of the Universe during the days when there were no on-demand streaming services and we actually had to plan and time ourselves to catch the next episode. Then there was the daily bombardment of commercials to mesmerise us with fantasy scenes that we would recreate if we could only get our hands on these tempting toys. Johan Alexanderson has masterfully recreated the Castle of Grayskull play-set together with tiny characters to represent the plastic figures — like a time machine to tease our nostalgic memories.

Masters of the Universe - Castle Grayskull and He-Man figures

The model built features the same concept as the original design from Mattel back in the 80s. It has the capability to swing the castle open and closed to reveal play features at the rear.

Making their appearance as part of the now converted play-theme into LEGO bricks are the unforgettable Orko, Man-At-Arms, Skeletor, and many more in a tiny minimalistic build format. They may not be in their exact shapes with the limits of the bricks, but their colour schemes give them away immediately. Are you able to spot your favourites amongst them?

Jack Skellington and Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas are the latest addition to the BrickHeadz lineup [News]

Brickheadz releases are on a roll with LEGO recently. We now have Jack Skellington and Sally from Tim Burton’s Nightmare before Christmas in the lineup. While there isn’t any release date announced just yet, we expect the price to be consistent with the other double pack sets at $19.99. Will this be part of your must-haves? Tell us what you think about them below.

Have a LEGO adventure with Winnie the Pooh

Builder Patrick B. is taking us back to a fond childhood memory in the Hundred Acre Wood with this quintet of beloved characters from A. A. Milne’s Winnie the Pooh series, consisting of Eeyore, Tigger, Pooh, Rabbit, and Kanga and Roo. Oh joy! The ears are the standout technique on each of the characters, made of various tiles and slopes, but my favorite detail is Rabbit’s whiskers, made with lever handles.

Winnie the Pooh & friends

Bonus fact: Winnie the Pooh was translated into Latin in the 1950s, and Winnie illie Pu proceeded to become the only Latin-language book ever to make it to the New York Times Best Seller list.

For the love of a man who will not see his country go down

What seemingly looks like a build of a loving elderly couple is more than meets the eye. This LEGO creation by Vincent Kiew is a living legend with his supportive wife. Tun Dr. Mahathir refused to let his country of Malaysia down and came out of retirement at a ripe old age with his supporting wife Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah by his side. So here’s the story that’s fit for a movie script just waiting to be made.

When best buddies are no more

Builder John Cheng brings us two lovable characters from a Magical Kingdom not so far away. They’ve been friends and buddies for close to 80 years! However, with all best friends, there are bad days when things just don’t go as well as they should.

LEGO BrickHeadz 41611 Marty McFly and Doc Emmett Brown from Back to the Future [Review]

Back To The Future has been a favourite franchise for a generation, but has not had any new movies in nearly 30 years. And yet, the iconic 1980’s trilogy continues getting revivals in every way possible, including as LEGO sets. We first saw it as an Ideas set (back when the line was known as Cuusoo) with 21103 DeLorean Time Machine, and then another revival of the theme in various LEGO Dimension add-ons, including Doc Emmet Brown Fun Pack and the Back to the Future Level Pack featuring Marty McFly. We now have them come together for the first time as LEGO BrickHeadz with the 41611 Marty McFly and Doc Emmett Brown two-pack.

The truth about Ewoks: Tiny terrors that we need to be afraid of

Ewoks have been misunderstood big time! Sure they’re cute and cuddly, but did anyone stop to consider how they nearly roasted Han, Luke, and Chewbacca for a scrumptious meal? Chi Hsin Wei captures three buddies debating where their next dinner might be coming from. Those beady black eyes are quite appropriate with the modified black lever elements and the minifigure scale of C-3PO fits perfectly as a plush toy.

Avast Ye Brick-aneers!

If you’re looking for a scurvy mate to fill your pillaging needs, here be the fellow! He’ll stand guard with his cleverly crafted musket, making sure your enemies walk the plank! The creator of this “maniac gunner pirate” is LEGO 7, and he’s no stranger to great builds. One of the best parts of this particular creation is the unique personality of the character. Not only does he have that wonderful classic pirate look, he also has the best expression on his face. Not to mention, his weapons display a uniquely creative use of parts.

And if you’re looking for a captain to add to your crew, you won’t be disappointed! LEGO 7 has also created a devilish Blackbeard to go with this first mate! He even has the peg-leg and macaw!

Headz up for more Rebel heroes

I have a feeling that the BrickHeadz series still has a pretty long lifespan with the amount of flexibility and simplicity of its appeal to the masses, reinforced by the upcoming 41597 Go Brick Me customization kit. The Star Wars franchise is no stranger to this trend, and we see a healthy amount of creativity that stands out, including these BrickHeadz of Admiral Ackbar, Biggs Darklighter, and Leia Organa. Tom Vanhaelen designed this trio, and really hit the nail on the head with that ‘stash. That printed moustache tile has “I belong to Biggs” written all over it.

 

These fully articulated LEGO Star Wars figures are ready to conquer the galaxy

With the next installment of the Star Wars franchise nearing once again, we’re starting to see the amazing community of builders turning their incredible skills to a galaxy far, far away. These larger doll-sized builds by Herbert Lee from Hong Kong are a prime example. With a multitude of articulation points to give life-like poses from any iconic scene from the movies, these figures stand about 8-10″ tall and are a considerable step up from the LEGO Star Wars BrickHeadz figures.

Herbert has built eight characters from across all three trilogies. Let’s take a look at each one of them in their best poses.

A crook with a hook and a flustered fabled fairy

A while ago, we featured a build from Jae Won Lee of a very emotionally stressed Tinker Bell. With this updated build in the picture, it all now makes sense. A larger-than-life Captain Hook seems to have captured Tinkerbell! I must admit those eyeballs set deep within his sockets give off a frightful look.

Captain HOOK 01

All is not what it seems as he has built a mechanical laugh to give life to the dastardly Hook – check out the video for it in action!
