BrickHeadz is going under the sea, as today LEGO has published pictures of this new pair of characters from Disney’s The Little Mermaid. Ariel and Ursula are joining Beauty and the Beast in bringing classic Disney tales to the collectible figure theme. 41623 Ariel & Ursula will have 361 pieces and will be numbered 64 and 65 in the BrickHeadz series, and although there’s no definitive word yet on the pricing, we expect it to be on par with previous two-packs. LEGO’s also given us a better look at the new BrickHeadz from Frozen that we announced last week, now including the box art. Check it all out below.

Do you want to build a snowman? — ask no more as cute little Olaf will be one of three new Disney characters to be released in upcoming LEGO BrickHeadz sets. According to the most recent LEGO Facebook announcement, two new Disney sets are to be released very soon, bringing Olaf, Anna, and Elsa figures in the style of BrickHeadz.
The smaller of two sets will contain the figure of Elsa only, while the bigger one will include Anna and Olaf, whose head design is based on a 3x3x3 cube (rather than the traditional BrickHeadz size of 4x4x4 studs). Actually, this is not the first BrickHeadz figure to feature the new dimensions; Hedwig in the forthcoming LEGO Harry Potter 41615 BrickHeadz set is also designed in the similar 3x3x3 format.
Prices, availability and piece count of both sets are yet to be announced.
Disney’s Frozen left us with a couple of heavy earworms still playing in the very background of our minds, but CK HO doesn’t let our favourite winter characters go. Recreated in the style of BrickHeadz, Elsa and Anna (featuring Olaf and Swen) do not look as excited as the versions by YOS Lego we featured previously, but this time they include not only bananas, but also some croissants.
Disney continues their very popular Frozen franchise, with a little help from LEGO. The newest addition to Elsa and Anna’s adventures with Northern Light premiers December 9, 2016 on the Disney Channel. Join Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, Olaf, and Sven as they try to save the Northern Lights. You can watch the trailer below, and don’t forget to also check out the new Disney Frozen LEGO sets.
The new sets for 2017 continue with a glimpse of Disney’s Frozen, Disney’s Princess Pets, and 6 new creator sets! Brickset reports that the Disney Princess theme will be renamed simply Disney, and should include both the general Disney sets and Frozen sets. The new Frozen lineup includes a new Ice Palace, which is a good deal larger than the previous version (which is on sale currently, along with the other Disney Frozen sets). And next up, we also have some new Creator sets, making the this the third batch of 2017 Creator sets we’ve seen. We’ve got links below for the previous reveals.

I recently picked up a copy of 41066 Anna & Kristoff’s Sleigh Adventure. This new entry into the Disney Princess theme costs $29.99 for 174 pieces. The set features Anna, Kristoff, and Sven the reindeer.
This is the second Frozen set to feature Anna in her mountain-cold gear, and the only set currently with Kristoff and Sven. I have a conflicted relationship with this set. The parts-cost ratio is off (17 cents per part, well above the 10 cent average). My initial reaction was that the magenta on the sleigh was out of place and jarring. That said, the set grew on me as I built it. Also, I’m a big fan of Sven. The box comes with parts divided into two numbered bags. The first bag includes Oaken’s Trading Post and the hay bale/tree, along with Anna. Bag two includes the sleigh and Kristoff. The sled rails, in Dark Blue for the first time, are free-floating in the box along with Sven in his bag.

Last year, Disney unleashed Frozen upon us, and since then, everyone has heard “Let it Go” in one way or another. Every parent has heard the soundtrack, and probably has contemplated hiding it.
Simon MacDonald (SIMAFOL) has gone one step further, creating a minifigure-scale version of Princess Elsa’s castle.
Disney’s latest hit Frozen has such fantastic characters–Olaf being one of them. His wish is to see summer time (and it’s DEFINITELY close to summer-time weather here in Florida). In his words, winter’s a good time to stay in and cuddle, but put him in summer and he’ll be a….happy snowman.
Joe Meno‘s brilliant Olaf took his WALL-E towel down to the beach to catch some of those rays:
