It goes without saying that we are a Disney family, but we are also a LEGO family and there’s no denying that. It’s a good thing LEGO makes so many Disney sets!
Our latest LEGO “investment” are the soon-to-be-released LEGO BrickHeadz. They were a VIP release and will be available to the general public tomorrow.
Like the title implies, these characters are more brick shaped than the mini figures are. Even though they are small (not as small as mini figures) they have a decent amount of pieces. The detail and creativity of how these characters take shape with LEGO bricks is pretty cool too.
This is a Series 1 release and each BrickHeadz figure has a “1” on plate that the figures stand on. It’s safe to assume that since LEGO is saying these are part of Series 1 that there will be more to follow, or at least we can hope.
These are not hard to put together at all. My husband did most of the building, but my daughter did help him with Belle and the Beast. She’s five and she had no trouble following the instruction booklet to put the figures together. LEGO has pretty easy-to-follow instruction booklets for their sets, some sets are just more intricate than others.
Check out our YouTube video to see them built and then keep scrolling for a closer look at each figure.
Time to take a closer look at the figures. We’ll start with Belle and the Beast.
Belle – 139 Pieces
I love the detail with her dress and her hair. The even gave her a bun with a yellow band!
Beast – 116 Pieces
The Beast has a great amount of detail in his outfit, LEGO gave him tails on his jacket, and with his face (just look at his ears, horns, fangs, and beard). Plus, they included the bow tied in his hair. Love it!
Now let’s look at the Marvel figures.
Captain America – 79 Pieces
Captain America has the least amount of pieces, but he is still pretty detailed. Just look at the detail to his outfit.
Iron Man – 96 Pieces
I love the detail with his face (helmet). It looks like his eyes are actually glowing.
The Hulk – 93 Pieces
The most impressive part about The Hulk is his hair. It was very creative to use all those angled pieces.
Black Widow – 143 Pieces
This is another one where my favorite part is the hair. She has the most pieces and a lot of those pieces were used in her hair.
When I first heard about these, I wasn’t sure the $9.99 price tag would be worth it, but after seeing the figures built I definitely think they are. Plus, $10 is probably the least you will spend for a LEGO item with this many pieces, LEGO tends to be on the pricey side. So you really do seem to get your money’s worth with these.
As I said above, these were released to VIPs earlier this month, but will be released to the general public tomorrow. For the full list of LEGO BrickHeadz being released you can visit LEGO’s website. Want to be a LEGO VIP? You can sign up at any LEGO Store and it’s free!
We’re pretty happy with our purchase and they have already been added to our LEGO collection. Now we wait for more to be released.
