  1. I love watching Sumo Wrestling on NHK World TV. I think my boy is starting to appreciate the sport because he asked me to make a BrickHeadz version of a rikishi (wrestler). I don't have Lego element 22885 which makes up most of the skeletal structure of a BrickHeadz. I made do with whatever parts I had and I'm pretty pleased with the outcome. Of course he needs that extra girth from eating all those chankonabe. I tried to capture the hairstyle - chonmage, as well as the mawashi (loincloth). His arms articulate as well.
  2. Check out my new Brickheadz, quite simple but not too bad, i think. Btw Ed is an AFOL too... ;) Ed Sheeran - Lego House by Davide Sacramati, on Flickr Ed Sheeran - Lego House by Davide Sacramati, on Flickr Ed Sheeran - Lego House by Davide Sacramati, on Flickr
  3. [MOC] Young Goku Brickheadz

    Hello everyone. This is my first brickheadz creation. What do you think? I think i can improve the flying nimbus. goku by Davide Sacramati, on Flickr Gokuback by Davide Sacramati, on Flickr goku3 by Davide Sacramati, on Flickr https://www.flickr.com/people/155731276@N06/
  4. [LDD] [MOC] BrickHeadz Ahsoka Tano

    This is my attempt in making an Ahsoka Tano BrickHeadz. I think the colors and the interesting build for the head would make her a good fit for the BrickHeadz lineup. I only used legal building techniques, but I did use particular colors for bricks that don't yet exist yet, as I'm not planning on building this with physical bricks. I designed it as if it would be an actual set however, so a couple of recolors and new prints would be made for this. The printed pieces will be: - Standard black BrickHeadz eyes (I tried blue like her minifigures have but it doesn't stand out as much in this case) - Printed white facial markings on the 1x4 tile for her cheeks and the 2x4 tile on her forehead - A print for the pink 1x2 sash - Perhaps the printed armbands on the orange 1x2 tiles and the orange diamond pattern on the side of the black 1x2 plates (one diamond per plate) Lego BrickHeadz Ahsoka Tano LDD MOC by Jek Porkchops, on Flickr I especially like how the rows of Akul teeth match the source material, with two being more or less horizontal and four being vertical. The bigger middle one is made from a Nexo Knights shield piece. Lego BrickHeadz Ahsoka Tano LDD MOC by Jek Porkchops, on Flickr I used a yellowish-green 3L lightsaber blade for her shoto, which they should really use for her minifigs as well. Lego BrickHeadz Ahsoka Tano LDD MOC by Jek Porkchops, on Flickr I hope you liked it. Please leave some constructive feedback if you want to.

  6. My Digital BrickHeadz MOCs

    I think that the zed in the name is silly it should be an s oh well,on with the show. I started making brickheadz because of the ongoing brickset contest ,but now that the building bug has bit, I can't stop :P Many of them are licensed so I wasn't sure if this was better here or in the licenses forum but anyway. First we have the Avatar-The last air-bender brickheadz 1-Aang and Momo Momo and Aang by batalfie, on Flickr 2-Zuko and Iroh Zuko and Iroh 1 by batalfie, on Flickr Next we have the Lotr ones 1-Frodo and Gandalf Frodo and Gandalf 1 by batalfie, on Flickr 2-Shelob and Gollum Shelob and Gollum 4 by batalfie, on Flickr Now we have the star wars Brickheadz 1-Han and Chewie Han and Chewie 1 by batalfie, on Flickr 2-Sabine and Kallus Sabine Wren and Agent Kallus by batalfie, on Flickr 3-Yoda and Sheev Yoda and Sheev 2 (RotS) by batalfie, on Flickr Fourth is the Steven Universe brickheadz 1-Steven and Connie Steven Universe and Connie Maheswaran 1 by batalfie, on Flickr 2-Pearl and Garnet Pearl and Garnet 1 by batalfie, on Flickr 3-Amethyst and Jasper Jasper and Amethyst 4 by batalfie, on Flickr 4-Peridot and Lapis Peridot and Lapis 1 by batalfie, on Flickr 5- Lars and lion Lion and pink Lars by batalfie, on Flickr Next is Doctor who 1-the First Doctor and a Cyberman First Doctor and a Cyberman by batalfie, on Flickr 2-the Twelfth Doctor and Bill Potts Twelfth Doctor and Bill 1 by batalfie, on Flickr 3-Third Doctor and the Master by batalfie, on Flickr Can you tell which used bluerender 0001 and which used bluerender 0005? more soon :)

  8. Oky's Brickheadz MOCz

    As you may be able to guess by my avatar, I am a fan of the new Brickheadz theme. The best thing about them (aside from looking really cute and NOT UGLY) is that they are fairly easy to build yourself by following the Brickheadz standard, so here is a thread for me to post my Brickheadz creations. As you may know, one of my favorite themes is Toy Story, so it only made sense for me to make Buzz and Woody first. And while I already have a space ranger Brickheadz body, I thought why not make one of my sigfig? :) Next, I wanted to work on a larger project, so I set out to recreate every main character from TMNT. Here is a group shot of the Brickheadz in a Half-shell: First up we have the leader Leonardo and the cool but crude Raphael. Next we have the other two turtles, Donatello and Michelangelo the party dude. And lets not forget the other good guys, April O'Neil and Master Splinter. April's hair is mostly borrowed from Black Widow, but it's shorter in the back to allow for her to have her collar. But what would our heroes be without some villains to fight, so here are the evil Shredder and Krang. As always, they are accompanied by their minions Bebop and Rocksteady. I will be working on more Brickheadz for the contest on Brickset, so keep an eye on this thread for more!
  9. As the title says, I'm looking for someone who has the exclusive SDCC BrickHeadz. And I don't mean stored away MISB to sell at some point, but I mean actually built (for what they are meant). Why? Well, I'm a collector of the Brickheadz series, but no-way I'm going to spent thousand(s) of dollars to get all these exclusive brickheadz. On a sidenote, I think it's a stupid decision from Lego to make so many SDCC exclusive Brickheadz. Brickheadz is a really collectible-oriented theme and a few exclusive ones is not a problem, but now there are already as much exclusives as there are standard Brickheadz Anyway, back on topic. As I said, buying the original ones is not an option for me. So, I'd like to Bricklink the parts. And for the printed pieces, I want to try to make some custom stickers. And here's where I need the help of someone with the set(s). Someone at the LDraw forums has been making vector images of the normal Brickheadz prints. And he's fine with making some vector copies of the SDCC prints too, he just needs some scans or photo's of the part. So, if you have these sets or if you know someone with the sets, please let me know Thanks! Btw, I wasn't sure if I had to post this in Licensed or in Special Themes
  10. I got bored and wanted something quick to build, so I decided to try my hand at a Brickheadz. I'm not near my collection at the moment, so I built in LDD. I also doubt I have all the pieces necessary to actually have a physical version of the model, but who knows, maybe I'll build it physically some day. Needles to say, the subject was spurred on because I've been meaning to sit down and continue watching the series which is titled after the titular character who's likeness I tried to replicate. She fights evil by moonlight, wins love by daylight, she never runs from a real fight (), she's the one called Sailor Moon! I've actually gained some mad respect for the designers of these little things. Maybe it was my choice of subject, but Sailor Moon's hair was quite possibly the most maddening thing I've ever had to think through. I'm still not thoroughly happy with her little hair buns, but it looks a lot better than some of the earlier drafts. I'll admit that I stole the skirt design from Super-girl, but it was honestly the best solution. I'm also not entirely pleased with the bow on the front, but if this was an actual product, I feel it'd be it's own printed piece. I'll probably do Tuxedo Mask in a bit to compliment the current Sailor Moon. Thoughts and criticism are appreciated!

  12. [MOC] SOYUZMULTFILM

    Hi! My new MOC presents the heroes of the most popular cartoons of the Soviet studio Soyuzmultfilm. These cartoons were created by Soviet animators in the 70s and 80s and more than one generation of Soviet and then Russian children were enjoyed watching them. And I still do it. image by Ольга Родионова, on Flickr image by Ольга Родионова, on Flickr image by Ольга Родионова, on Flickr image by Ольга Родионова, on Flickr image by Ольга Родионова, on Flickr Thank your for attantion.
  13. I am selling a 100% complete NYCC/SDCC/NYTF collection that I am willing to split up and sell the pieces individually.Condition:All items are mint unless otherwise noted. These are probably the best condition you'll be able to find anywhere as I pride myself on only offering the best. Shipping (US+WW):Shipping within the continental US is free + extra cost if you want insurance. Shipping outside of the continental US will be charged at cost only. You will be invoiced after the item has been shipped so that you're only charged exact cost.Pictures:More can be provided upon request, just ask!Pricing:Some items were listed on eBay by other sellers, in which case the price I listed below is cheaper than theirs. Some items are not listed on eBay or Bricklink, therefore I had to estimate my own prices mostly based off of previous sales. A LOT MORE TO COME! I'm clearing out almost an entire 100% complete Super Hero/Marvel/Batman collection. There are minifigures, polybags, and sets (NIB) galore. The minifigures are either loose or come in gorgeous plastic cases with a comic backdrop. I haven't had a chance to go through and inventory everything yet, so stay tuned. I've posted a few pictures of the polybag/minifigure offerings to come in the next few weeks at the end of this post.Items: #sh028 + #sh027 NYTF Iron Man and Captain America Mint PM for Info #41491-1 SDCC 2016 Brick Heads 41491 Batman and Joker no 0984 Mint 155 #41492-1 SDCC 2016 Brick Heads 41492 Iron Man and Captain America no 0894 Mint 190 #41493-1 SDCC 2016 Brick Heads 41493 Black Panther and Dr. Strange no 1363 Mint 145 #41490-1 SDCC 2016 Brick Heads 41490 Superman and Wonder Woman no 0590 Mint 165 #comcon050-1 SDCC 2016 ATOM Mint 195 #comcon029-1 SDCC 2016 Steve Rogers Mint 245 #comcon048-1 SDCC 2015 Throne of Ultron no 0380 Mint 140 #comcon047-1 SCDD 2015 Action Comics #1 Superman no 0981 Mint 330 #comcon045-1 SDCC 2015 Arsenal Mint 200 #comcon046-1 SDCC 2015 Sam Wilson Captain America Mint 220 #comcon034-1 SDCC 2014 Rocket Raccoon's Warbird no 0413 Mint 220 #comcon035-1 SDCC 2014 The Collector AFA 8.5 Stan Lee 800 #comcon037-1 SDCC 2014 Batman Classic TV Series Batmobile no 0127 Mint 400 #comcon036-1 SDCC 2014 Batman Zur-En-Arrh Mint 490 #comcon028-1 SDCC 2013 Spiderman Mint 2800 #comcon027-1 SDCC 2013 Spider Woman Mint 2000 #comcon030-1 SDCC 2013 Green Arrow Mint 1600 #comcon029-1 SDCC 2013 Black Superman Mint 1450 #comcon013-1 SDCC 2011 Green Lantern NM 300 #comcon014-1 SDCC 2011 Batman NM 750 #comcon020-1 SDCC 2012 Shazaam NM 400 #comcon022-1 SDCC 2012 Bizzaro NM 400 #comcon021-1 SDCC 2012 Phoenix NM 400 #comcon023-1 SDCC 2012 Black Spiderman NM 350 #comcon018-1 NYCC 2011 Batman AFA 9.0 850 #comcon017-1 NYCC 2011 Superman AFA 9.0 1200 #comcon052-1 NYCC 2016 Batgirl Mint $30 #comcon038-1 SDCC Bard the Bowman NM $65 #comcon040-1 SDCC Unikitty NM $110 #comcon049-1 SDCC Bionicle Skull Scorpio Mask NM $35 Thanks for reading.Again, please stay tuned for a nearly complete collection of NIB Super Hero/Marvel/Batman sets, other sets, and more rare items.Thanks,Samuel
  14. Easter Bunny and Egg

    It is soon Easter, so what would be more appropriate than building something for the season? This time I have tried to venture into the theme of BrickHeadz: The bunny is almost following the BrickHeadz standard. I took the liberty to place the eyes a stud higher, and let the belly drop a bit in the front. The egg is similarly squared to stay in the style of the theme. It is decorated by my girlfriend. Here is an additional photo with the tail should you want to build your own: Happy Easter :)
  15. I bought this set because it seems like everyone has been raving about the amazing BrickHeadz series. Am I the only one out there who's a just little "meh"?
  16. Review: 41592 The Hulk

    BrickHeadz is an exciting new Lego theme that depicts our favorite characters from movies, TV shows, games, and comics into fun and stylized collectible forms. Each set contains a brick built figure with a build-able base, that includes a printed tile piece denoting the figure's wave number. Wave one consists of twelve unique and colorful characters based on The Lego Batman Movie, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Disney's Beauty and the Beast and Pirates of the Caribbean. BrickHeadz is an exclusive theme from Lego, which means that you can only find the BrickHeadz sets at Lego brand retail stores and online from Lego Shop. Before I begin this review, I would like to give my sincerest thanks to The LEGO Group (TLG) who have provided this set, and other wave one BrickHeadz sets, to Eurobricks making this review possible. The opinions expressed in this review are my own. Introduction Yes, Hulk smash. Its a catchy catchphrase and decorum requires I write it here at least once, so I'm getting it out of the way now. Anyways, Hulk is a cornerstone member of the Avengers from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and so it's no surprise that he's one of the first four characters to make the leap the film screen to Lego BrickHeadz, in the form of 41592 The Hulk. But while his straightforward dialogue and poppin purple pants have made him a crowd pleaser, in my opinion, they don't seem to have made the transition to BrickHeadz particularly well. Why should you ask? Well read on... Also quick aside, do note I apparently inaccurately placed Hulk's thumbs in my images...whoops... Set Stats Name: 41592 The Hulk Theme: Licensed / BrickHeadz Year: 2017 Pieces: 93 Minifigs: N/A Price: USD $9.99, CA $12.99, DE 9.99€, UK £9.99 Resources: Brickset, Bricklink, Lego Shop Packaging Color. The reason is color. Cutting to the chase, 41592 The Hulk is intended to represent the film version, specifically the one from Avengers: Age of Ultron (and as such has a unique red colored box), but he just doesn't cut it color wise. This is most evident on the box art itself, which while showing all the standard staples such as the BrickHeadz logo and that ugly wall of text, importantly shows the character inspiration image--one which is clearly depicts an olive green Hulk as opposed to the Lego green Hulk. It's a subtle but significant difference. Lego Marvel Superheroes learned this lesson after their first Avengers set wave in 2012--in which the first Lego bigfig of Hulk was inaccurately molded in bright green--only to soon be switched over to the correct olive green shade for the next film sets. Now you may be saying, "well so what, he's still green". True, that is a valid point. But in my view the fact that he is not the right green is a significant issue as the figure is billed as, and is meant to accompany other figures being billed as, versions from the Avengers/MCU films. This is not a film Hulk, this is comic Hulk. But I digress. In the meantime on the actual subject of packaging, inside the box you'll find one instruction booklet, two bags--one big and one small--as well as a loose 4x6 black plate which will be used for the figure's base. Interesting Parts Considering that he's basically just green skin and purple pants, one doesn't go into 41592 The Hulk expecting the greatest new pieces ever. And I'm not going to try and dispute that. Hulk comes with the standards, such as the wave plate, BrickHeadz eyes, and those modified bricks (fourteen of them). He does have two nice hinge pieces in green, but that's about it. Printed parts: just two 1x4 bricks that depict his muscular torso. What you see is what you get with this guy. Build 41592 The Hulk is perhaps one of the simplest BrickHeadz to construct, which is not surprising considering he's basically just giant-sized normal person, well with green skin. There's no interesting new techniques, although he does feature some abnormally large arms and hands for a BrickHeadz, which I think work well as they give the impression of a bulky person without actually changing the standardized scale itself. Completed Figure I mean, does it look like Hulk? Absolutely. But I cannot shake the feeling that he should have been in olive green. Consitancy wise, all the other Marvel figures are based on their popular film appearance looks, and Hulk just stands out because he's too bright--he has not been appropriately muted down to match the film. Does he make a good figure himself--yes. Does he fit in with the movie specific figures? That's a tough question and frankly one that's up for everyone to individually decide. Conclusion 41592 The Hulk may have smashed expectations with his recent appearances in the Avengers films, but I don't think he's the breakout start of the Marvel BrickHeadz wave. Score Design: 5/5 - Overall, it's hard to get the Hulk's shape wrong, really. Parts: 2/5 - Green? Wrong--Olive Green is right! Build: 5/5 - Simple, but that's expected for a character like Hulk. Value for Price: 3/5 - Is it worth adding to your collection, when he doesn't fit in stylistically? My Score: (15/20) C Eurobricks BrickHeadz Reviews: 41585 Batman, 41586 Batgirl, 41587 Robin, 41588 The Joker, 41595 Belle, 41596 Beast, 41589 Captain America, 41590 Iron Man, 41591 Black Widow, 41592 The Hulk
  17. Review: 41591 Black Widow

    BrickHeadz is an exciting new Lego theme that depicts our favorite characters from movies, TV shows, games, and comics into fun and stylized collectible forms. Each set contains a brick built figure with a build-able base, that includes a printed tile piece denoting the figure's wave number. Wave one consists of twelve unique and colorful characters based on The Lego Batman Movie, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Disney's Beauty and the Beast and Pirates of the Caribbean. BrickHeadz is an exclusive theme from Lego, which means that you can only find the BrickHeadz sets at Lego brand retail stores and online from Lego Shop. Before I begin this review, I would like to give my sincerest thanks to The LEGO Group (TLG) who have provided this set, and other wave one BrickHeadz sets, to Eurobricks making this review possible. The opinions expressed in this review are my own. Introduction While being one of the only female Avengers, Black Widow has shown her own in the kicking and pain inflicting department, for which she's been rewarded with a top spot among the first four Mavel BrickHeadz. Lego's 41591 Black Widow also manages to capture the likeness of it's film inspiration--that of Scarlett Johansson--very well, which only adds to the appeal of the figure. But if you're not convinced she's a useful Avenger BrickHeadz yet, read on and let's see if we can change your opinion... Set Stats Name: 41591 Black Widow Theme: Licensed / BrickHeadz Year: 2017 Pieces: 143 Minifigs: N/A Price: USD $9.99, CA $12.99, DE 9.99€, UK £9.99 Resources: Brickset, Bricklink, Lego Shop Packaging As with all BrickHeadz, 41591 Black Widow comes in the standard BrickHeadz box--one that includes a thumb open tap, large BrickHeadz logos, and that wall of ugly text. Still, the blue of the Captain America: Civil War backdrop allows the black and orange figure to pop nicely, as does the image of Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, for which the figure is inspired by. Inside the box you'll find one instruction booklet, two bags--one big and one small--as well as a loose 4x6 black plate which will be used for the figure's base. Interesting Parts 41591 Black Widow is one of the most part heavy BrickHeadz and she also manages to come with numerous desirable pieces in Dark Orange. Most of these dark orange pieces are various slopes, such as 1x2 slopes, 2x2 slopes, and 1x2 arch slopes. Aside from all the standard inclusions (modified bricks in light bley, BrickHeadz eye tiles, and of course the 2x4 wave tile), Black Widow comes with two uniquely printed pieces. The first is a 1x2 brick which depicts her torso and belt design, and the second being two 1x2 tiles in dark blueish grey that are printed with a depiction of her electrified gauntlets. While still being accurate to the character, the gauntlet tiles are generic enough to find numerous uses elsewhere--which is a plus. Build As with all BrickHeadz, the bulk of the building is focused on the head construction--or rather in the case of 41591 Black Widow, the hair. Using a massive number of slopes, tiles and plates Lego has managed to very accurately depict the hairstyle of the character from the Avengers films. Surprisingly, despite the bulk of the hair, I've not experienced the tendency for the figure to tip over backwards, which is unfortunately the case of other large headed figures like 41588 Joker and 41586 Batgirl. In addition to the hair, I found the belt/waist design to be particularity notable, in that Black Widow does not use a 4x4 plate for her main waist piece, as is the case with most BrickHeadz. Instead, she utilizes four black modified 2x2 plates, which allow for the attachment of a rather low riding belt. I'll also note that I found the transition from the main 1x2 printed brick to the adjacent bricks to be very well done. The black and dark bley colors flow really nicely into the print, creating a very streamlined look. And yes, you also build that base too, with only four pieces. Completed Figure First impression--lots of hair! But in a good way. It's been meticulously sculpted and as a result it has turned out to be very reminiscent of Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow. As I just noted, the streamlined feel to the figure is very nice, and her torso print and pieces are used very well. I also particularly like her leg pouches, which add to the character's armed feel. In that regard, Black Widow also comes with two rather generic accessories, 4 length bars in standard black, for her stun batons. Conclusion 41591 Black Widow is a detailed BrickHeadz with gorgeous dark orange hair and great graphic design. She'll be a welcome addition to any BrickHeadz collection. Score Design: 5/5 - Lots of work went into the hair, and it was worth the effort. Parts: 5/5 - Tons of Dark Orange? What's not to love?! Build: 5/5 - Black Widow utilizes different techniques than other BrickHeadz making her build uniquely interesting. Value for Price: 5/5 - One of the most part heavy BrickHeadz, you get the most for your money. My Score: (20/20) A Eurobricks BrickHeadz Reviews: 41585 Batman, 41586 Batgirl, 41587 Robin, 41588 The Joker, 41595 Belle, 41596 Beast, 41589 Captain America, 41590 Iron Man, 41591 Black Widow, 41592 The Hulk
  18. Review: 41590 Iron Man

    BrickHeadz is an exciting new Lego theme that depicts our favorite characters from movies, TV shows, games, and comics into fun and stylized collectible forms. Each set contains a brick built figure with a build-able base, that includes a printed tile piece denoting the figure's wave number. Wave one consists of twelve unique and colorful characters based on The Lego Batman Movie, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Disney's Beauty and the Beast and Pirates of the Caribbean. BrickHeadz is an exclusive theme from Lego, which means that you can only find the BrickHeadz sets at Lego brand retail stores and online from Lego Shop. Before I begin this review, I would like to give my sincerest thanks to The LEGO Group (TLG) who have provided this set, and other wave one BrickHeadz sets, to Eurobricks making this review possible. The opinions expressed in this review are my own. Introduction Iron Man is arguably one of the most popular Marvel characters now, due in large part to his appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With that in mind, it's no surprise that 41590 Iron Man is one of the first Marvel BrickHeadz (second only to 41589 Captain America, make of that what you will), and for good logistical reasons too--he just looks great. Iron Man, due to his bulky armor, expressionless face, and hot rod color scheme translates to the BrickHeadz style far better than most. 41590 Iron Man is one of the best BrickHeadz, period. But I guess I do have to say a bit more, so read on... Set Stats Name: 41590 Iron Man Theme: Licensed / BrickHeadz Year: 2017 Pieces: 96 Minifigs: N/A Price: USD $9.99, CA $12.99, DE 9.99€, UK £9.99 Resources: Brickset, Bricklink, Lego Shop Packaging As with all BrickHeadz sets, 41590 Iron Man comes in the standard box with all the appropriate logos and walls of texts. Included is also an image of the inspiration, that of Iron Man mark whatever (I lost count, and I don't care to know anymore!) from Captain America: Civil War. Inside the box you'll find one instruction booklet, two bags--one big and one small--as well as a loose 4x6 black plate which will be used for the figure's base. Interesting Parts With a great color scheme, 41590 Iron Man also comes with numerous intersting pieces, both standard and printed. On the standard side, he come with the Brickheadz cornerstones such as the wave tile and fourteen of those modified bricks in light bley. But unlike others, instead of the round BrickHeadz eyes, Iron Man comes with two 1x1 trans-light blue tiles which are actually printed with a simple white square on top of them. This subtle print creates the illusion that they are actually lit by lights, which is very cool. Standard part wise, Iron man also comes with six headlight bricks in Bright Light Orange and eight in Dark Red. Additionally, various Dark Red modified plates are included, which are nice to have. Build Like all BrickHeadz, 41590 Iron Man features a standardized build structure, although he does feature some unique deviations to depict his bulky armor. The numerous headlight bricks also add an added twist on the BrickHeadz mold, which makes constructing Iron Man more interesting than some other figures. Of course, you also construct the standard BrickHeadz base. Completed Figure Overall very nice figure. 41590 Iron Man fits very well in the BrickHeadz template, and that's largely due to the bulky armor which looks nice when dropped into a rather square mold. The level of detail is just right, and the Bright Light Orange pops expertly well against the dark red. Lego could have used Pearl Gold instead, but I appreciate that they went with a brighter, if slightly less accurate, shade instead. Now unlike his SDCC counterpart, this Iron Man unfortunately does not come with repuslor blasts as an accessory. I would have appreciated those being included, but thankfully their absence is not as egregious as Captain America missing his shield or anything. Conclusion Disputed leader of the Avengers, 41590 Iron Man is both a necessary inclusion in any respectable Marvel BrickHeadz collection, but also a very well done figure in his own right. Score Design: 5/5 - The Iron Man armor translated very well to the blocky style of BrickHeadz. Parts: 5/5 - Dark Red and Bright Light Orange? Sign me up! Build: 5/5 - Despite on the surface reading mostly as just tiles, there's lots of nice interesting bits just under the surface. Value for Price: 5/5 - A good number of parts in uncommon colors and a great figure to boot means this is worth the cost.

  19. Review: 41589 Captain America

    BrickHeadz is an exciting new Lego theme that depicts our favorite characters from movies, TV shows, games, and comics into fun and stylized collectible forms. Each set contains a brick built figure with a build-able base, that includes a printed tile piece denoting the figure's wave number. Wave one consists of twelve unique and colorful characters based on The Lego Batman Movie, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Disney's Beauty and the Beast and Pirates of the Caribbean. BrickHeadz is an exclusive theme from Lego, which means that you can only find the BrickHeadz sets at Lego brand retail stores and online from Lego Shop. Before I begin this review, I would like to give my sincerest thanks to The LEGO Group (TLG) who have provided this set, and other wave one BrickHeadz sets, to Eurobricks making this review possible. The opinions expressed in this review are my own. Introduction Ah, Captain America. As one of the leaders of the Avengers (assuming Iron Man is not contesting that at the moment), he's a prime candidate for a BrickHeadz character, so it's no surprise he showed up in this first wave. Based on his less colorful film version, 41589 Captain America is arguably one of the best BrickHeadz due to his simplicity; despite having one of the lowest brick counts, he manages to appear quite accurate. Set Stats Name: 41589 Captain America Theme: Licensed / BrickHeadz Year: 2017 Pieces: 79 Minifigs: N/A Price: USD $9.99, CA $12.99, DE 9.99€, UK £9.99 Resources: Brickset, Bricklink, Lego Shop Packaging Utilizing standard BrickHeadz packaging, 41589 Captain America features images of both the figure and the inspiration--that of the film version of Captain America, as well as all the generic bits like logos and walls of text. As three of the Marvel BrickHeadz are branded under the Captain America: Civil War banner, their main color scheme follows that of the Captain himself, hence the blue box. That said, Captain America does somewhat disappear on his own box because of this, but nonetheless it is an appropriate color. Inside the box you'll find one instruction booklet, two bags--one big and one small--as well as a loose 4x6 black plate which will be used for the figure's base. Interesting Parts While only having 79 pieces, which even by BrickHeadz standards is on the low side, 41589 Captain America has a number of interesting printed pieces as well as numerous parts in desirable dark blue. Aside from the standard BrickHeadz parts such as the printed 2x4 wave tile, 1x1 round eye tiles, and fourteen of those modified light blueish grey bricks, Captain America comes with a printed shield piece from his minifigure version. It's hilariously out of scale for the figure himself, yet it manages to be very cute and fitting for a BrickHeadz. Additionally, two uniquely printed 1x4 bricks are included, as well as a large printed "A" tile. Build As with all Brickheadz, a large chunk of the figure is devoted to constructing the head, and 41589 Captain America is no different. However, Lego managed to add in some specific--and notable--details from the film version of the character by using various dark tan tiles and specialized plates to build a representation of the Captain's helmet straps covering his chin. This is a simple yet inspired detail, and one that I very much appreciate. Of course, you also construct the necessary figure stand using only four simple pieces. Completed Figure Glorious! 41589 Captain America makes the most of his lower piece count and absolutely runs away with the accuracy from the film version. While other Marvel BrickHeadz--cough Hulk cough--only have a passing resemblance to their MCU counterparts, Captain America in particular succeeds in his brick transformation. You'll note too that 41589 Captain America has an added surprising feature, in that the inclusion of a simple clip plate allows one to attach the minifigure shield to the back of the figure. Again this is a great, if simple, call back to the films in which Captain America is constantly holstering his shield. Now, does it make the figure look better by doing this? Arguably no, as the figure is just more appealing with the shield in his hand, but I like that Lego has created the option for one to move around the shield. Conclusion Being the debated leader of the Avengers means any Lego Marvel fan will be eyeing 41589 Captain America, and his great accurate design only adds to his appeal. Score Design: 5/5 - Very accurate to the movie source material. Parts: 5/5 - While not containing lower than normal pieces, all the clips and colors are desirable. Plus the shield is a good bonus! Build: 5/5 - Simple, but great part placement adds to the accuracy. Value for Price: 5/5 - One of the best looking BrickHeadz, Captain America feels very polished and worth the price. My Score: (20/20) A Eurobricks BrickHeadz Reviews: 41585 Batman, 41586 Batgirl, 41587 Robin, 41588 The Joker, 41595 Belle, 41596 Beast, 41589 Captain America, 41590 Iron Man, 41591 Black Widow, 41592 The Hulk
  20. After getting one of the "brickheadz" I thout it would be fun to make some of my own. I have created a Two-Face and Riddler brickhead each based off of their Lego Batman Movie design. I paired these two because of Batman Forever. Two-Face was pretty fun to make. I tried to capture his melted half by exposing some studs and using lots of pink pieces. I also added eye details and the bit of underwear showing on his leg. 121 pieces Riddler turned out decent as well, I thought. His hair is not spot on, but I was able to give his hat a tilt. I aslo added question marks on his green suit. 119 pieces If you wish to support these on Lego Ideas please go here: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/170444 It would be very much appreciated.
  21. Review: 41595 Belle

    BrickHeadz is an exciting new Lego theme that depicts our favorite characters from movies, TV shows, games, and comics into fun and stylized collectible forms. Each set contains a brick built figure with a build-able base, that includes a printed tile piece denoting the figure's wave number. Wave one consists of twelve unique and colorful characters based on The Lego Batman Movie, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Disney's Beauty and the Beast and Pirates of the Caribbean. BrickHeadz is an exclusive theme from Lego, which means that you can only find the BrickHeadz sets at Lego brand retail stores and online from Lego Shop. Before I begin this review, I would like to give my sincerest thanks to The LEGO Group (TLG) who have provided this set, and other wave one BrickHeadz sets, to Eurobricks making this review possible. The opinions expressed in this review are my own. Introduction Little known fact about myself, I absolutely love Disney Princess movies (on the condition they're European/Medieval in style and there's a castle involved somewhere) so I was very excited when rumors started to spread late last year that Beauty and the Beast would make the leap from screen to BrickHeadz. This is not too surprising really, considering a live action rendition will be released to US theaters later this month featuring Emma Watson as Belle and Matthew Crawley as the Beast--still the extra hype generated around this live-action remake and the 1991 original have actually helped hype up the excitement around these two figures themselves. I'll cut to the point, 41595 Belle is a very good set. She's arguably one of the best BrickHeadz (as is 41596 Beast) not only due to her parts, techniques and overall appearance, but because without a doubt whenever you look at her or even start putting two pieces together, that 90's nostalgia will seep in and you'll start humming a certain song about tales old as time... Set Stats Name: 41595 Belle Theme: Licensed / BrickHeadz Year: 2017 Pieces: 139 Minifigs: N/A Price: USD $9.99, CA $12.99, DE 9.99€, UK £9.99 Resources: Brickset, Bricklink, Lego Shop Packaging The BrickHeadz sets all come in the same sized box (3.6 x 4.8 x 3.1), and 41595 Belle is no exception. Unlike the box style used for the Lego Batman Movie BrickHeadz, such as that on 41585 Batman, the color scheme used by Belle is far more pleasing. The bright pink backdrop laced with embroidery really helps the mostly yellow figure pop. As with all BrickHeadz boxes, the front and right hand side feature the BrickHeadz logo as well as an image of the figure itself plus an image of the figure's inspiration. Here a familiar image of Disney's 1991 Belle will immediately set standard that this is set is based on the animated film rather than the upcoming live action version (although, I don't think basing Belle on the Emma Watson version would have affected her overall look here much). Of note on the box, and it's pleasantness--gone is the black wall of ugly text...to be replaced with a white wall of ugly text. It's not as much of an eyesore this time, but I do wish Lego would have found a better place to put all of those warnings. Is the no zero to three-year-olds symobl not enough? The back of the 41595 Belle box features images of 41896 Beast, as well as the two upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean BrickHeadz sets: 41593 Captain Jack Sparrow and 41594 Captain Armando Salazar--an interesting note as the sub-themes are combined essentially as neither of the two properties have been given four figures in this first wave, unlike The Lego Batman Movie and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As with all BrickHeadz boxes, this one is opened by a thumb tab rather than tape. Inside the box contains one instruction manual, two bags of pieces--one big and one small--and unusually a 6x8 loose plate for Belle's base. Unlike every other figure BrickHeadz wave one, Belle has an abnormally large base plate to accommodate her large dress design. Interesting Parts 41595 Belle features a number of pieces in rare colors as well as a number of exclusive printed pieces. Belle uses four identical 2x4 printed slopes to make up the bottom half of her dress, as well as a printed 1x4 brick to make up her torso. Both of these, as well as 1x2 slopes and 1x1 plates are molded in Bright Light Yellow--a particularly beautiful if rare color. Personally I can already see Belle's dress slopes being utilized in some rather nice custom buildings and interiors, being used as crown molding. Belle also comes with all the standard BrickHeadz trappings, such as fourteen (1x2x1 2/3) modified bricks with side studs, and BrickHeadz eye tiles. Additionally, Belle comes with a three length bar in Bright Green which is used in conjunction with a flower stud to make an accessory rose. Interestingly enough, the set comes with extras of both pieces so you can give a rose to 41596 Beast too. Build 41595 Belle is unique among the wave one BrickHeadz as she utilizes an abnormal leg build to construct her large dress--which incidentally also facilitates the need for a larger base than normal. Utilizing the four printed 2x4 slope pieces, the dress is both appropriately detailed, curvy, and yet still blocky enough to fit in with the BrickHeadz style. Of particular note, I love how the designer showed Belle's open sleeves. Just using a simple color change, the appearance of an open sleeved gown is sold. It really goes to show how suggestion of detail or attributes is vitally important to BrickHeadz pulling off believable designs. Completed Figure As stunning here as she was in the film, 41595 Belle has turned out spectacularly well in BrickHeadz form. The printed pieces really sell the dress and the flowing hair establishes movement and nostalgic blasts from the past from the iconic ballroom dance scene. Here unlike some other BrickHeadz, Belle also comes with a very appropriate accessory--a single rose--which while simple in its construction is perfect for the style of the figure. It is worth noting that there's one possible negative. Because of Belle's dress construction, 41595 Belle uses an abnormally deep base plate. This could annoy some collectors as they try to get their BrickHeadz to fit perfectly on display shelves only to find the Belle has a deeper base than all the other figures. That said, because of her more secure base and sturdy lower body, Belle does not suffer the affliction of fainting spells some heavy headed BrickHeadz are sick with, such as 41586 Batgirl and 41588 The Joker. Conclusion With bright color, detailed printed bricks, and nostalgic firepower, 41595 Belle is sure to bring a smile to many faces and would be a welcome presence in any BrickHeadz collection, especially in tandem with 41596 Beast. Score Design: 5/5 - From the glitzy dress, the well done hair, to the open sleeves Belle is one gorgeous BrickHeadz. Parts: 5/5 - Numerous Bright Light Yellow pieces, reusable printed designs, and brown slopes make this set desirable for parts. Build: 5/5 - Unique among the Wave 1 BrickHeadz, Belle utilizes interesting connections to make her dress. Value for Price: 5/5 - With a nice looking figure, good parts, and a good number of parts too, the value is very good compared to other lesser BrickHeadz. My Score: (20/20) A Eurobricks BrickHeadz Reviews: 41585 Batman, 41586 Batgirl, 41587 Robin, 41588 The Joker, 41595 Belle, 41596 Beast, 41589 Captain America, 41590 Iron Man, 41591 Black Widow, 41592 The Hulk
  22. Review: 41596 Beast

    BrickHeadz is an exciting new Lego theme that depicts our favorite characters from movies, TV shows, games, and comics into fun and stylized collectible forms. Each set contains a brick built figure with a build-able base, that includes a printed tile piece denoting the figure's wave number. Wave one consists of twelve unique and colorful characters based on The Lego Batman Movie, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Disney's Beauty and the Beast and Pirates of the Caribbean. BrickHeadz is an exclusive theme from Lego, which means that you can only find the BrickHeadz sets at Lego brand retail stores and online from Lego Shop. Before I begin this review, I would like to give my sincerest thanks to The LEGO Group (TLG) who have provided this set, and other wave one BrickHeadz sets, to Eurobricks making this review possible. The opinions expressed in this review are my own. Introduction Beauty and the Beast is without a doubt one of Disney's greatest films, so it shouldn't be surprising that when Lego tackles said property head on, good results soon follow. 41596 Beast should be of particular interest to BrickHeadz fans because he's has the most non-human form of all the figures we've seen from the first wave. No doubt later down the line we'll end up with some equally challenging shapes being squeezed into the BrickHeadz mold but the fact that Beast has turned out so well (and frankly so cute), can only mean good things to come. But for now, let's take a deeper look at the Beast within... Set Stats Name: 41596 Beast Theme: Licensed / BrickHeadz Year: 2017 Pieces: 116 Minifigs: N/A Price: USD $9.99, CA $12.99, DE 9.99€, UK £9.99 Resources: Brickset, Bricklink, Lego Shop Packaging The BrickHeadz sets all come in the same sized box (3.6 x 4.8 x 3.1), and 41596 Beast is no exception. Unlike the box style used for the Lego Batman Movie BrickHeadz, such as that on 41585 Batman, the color scheme used by 41596 Beast is far more pleasing to the eye. Bright pink is used which contrasts very nicely with the blue and yellow coat worn by Beast as well as all of his Dark Orange fur. The white brick border on the bottom of the box is also of particular note, as it gives the whole set a very clean and premium feel. The front and right hand side features the BrickHeadz logo as well as an image of the Beast himself, including image of the figure's 1991 animated inspiration. Both 41595 Belle and the Beast are inspired by their animated appearance rather than their upcoming live action forms, I suspect this was done by Lego to reach the widest possible buying audience and beef up the nostalgia factor. While live action Belle may not have changed much visually, the upcoming live action Beast is certainly darker overall and would likely have created a more animalistic and possibly unfamiliar figure for the public. So in my opinion it was wise to go with the animated form. Unlike the Lego Batman Movie BrickHeadz, the Disney based ones use an ugly white wall of text, as opposed to a black one. Somewhat better? The back of the 41596 Beast box features images of 41595 Belle, as well as the two upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean BrickHeadz: 41593 Captain Jack Sparrow and 41594 Captain Armando Salazar. And as with all BrickHeadz boxes, this one is opened by a thumb tab rather than tape. Inside the box you'll find one instruction booklet, two bags--one big and one small--as well as a loose 4x6 black plate which will be used for the figure's base. Interesting Parts Being brightly colored and furry, 41596 Beast comes with a number of desirable parts, many of which coming the uncommon color of Dark Orange. These include eight 2x2 slopes, one 1x2 slope, two modified 1x2 plates with side clip, two dark orange jumper plates, and two dark orange 1x2 tooth plates. Additionally, Beast comes with two white quarter melon tiles, which are used for his fangs. As with all BrickHeadz, Beast features a number of (1x2x1 2/3) modified brick with side studs (in this case fourteen), as well as the standardized BrickHeadz eye tiles and wave indication 2x4 plate. 41596 Beast only comes with one uniquely printed piece, which is his vest print on a 1x1x2 yellow brick. Build As with all BrickHeadz the underlying structure of the figure is more or less the same--it's only when one reaches the head to things really start to change technique wise. In this regard, 41596 Beast features a number of smart choices that not only make the figure fun to build, but spot on accurate after the face. The use of quarter melon tiles for the fangs, the semblance of a lower lip with a goatee, and even bushy eyebrows really sell the look of the animated character. Also of note this is the only BrickHeadz thus far that has a tail! Completed Figure He's so cute! The little bow, the fangs, even the standardized BrickHeadz eyes giving the puppy dog look! Now why wouldn't Belle love him? Ignoring the kidnapping and servitude bits of course. Still, 41596 Beast is a truly stunning figure--not only does he look like his animated counterpart, but he simply pops on a shelf. The colors are bold and the design is new and unique. What's more to ask for? Conclusion An absolute must have for Disney fans, I'm sure we'll find even marginal BrickHeadz fans will be considering adding 41596 Beast to their collection. Score Design: 5/5 - Oh how a beast could be so beautiful, and not just on the inside! Lego has captured the Beast's face very well. Parts: 5/5 - Despite having only one unique print, the large amount of Dark Orange pieces more than make up for it. Build: 5/5 - The most animal-like of the Wave 1 BrickHeadz, Beast is interesting to build simply because his face is so different and detailed. Value for Price: 5/5 - Dark Orange, cute cuddly Beast? What's not to love at this price point?

  23. Review: 41588 The Joker

    BrickHeadz is an exciting new Lego theme that depicts our favorite characters from movies, TV shows, games, and comics into fun and stylized collectible forms. Each set contains a brick built figure with a build-able base, that includes a printed tile piece denoting the figure's wave number. Wave one consists of twelve unique and colorful characters based on The Lego Batman Movie, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Disney's Beauty and the Beast and Pirates of the Caribbean. BrickHeadz is an exclusive theme from Lego, which means that you can only find the BrickHeadz sets at Lego brand retail stores and online from Lego Shop. Before I begin this review, I would like to give my sincerest thanks to The LEGO Group (TLG) who have provided this set, and other wave one BrickHeadz sets, to Eurobricks making this review possible. The opinions expressed in this review are my own. Introduction The Joker. Like Batman, it's almost expected that he would be included in the first wave of BrickHeadz, at least considering The Lego Batman Movie sub-theme going on. While some people might not like the over the top style of this character in the Lego film specifically, he does translate particularly well to the BrickHeadz form. And at the same time, he manages to provide one of the most engaging building experiences of all the BrickHeadz. So let's find out why by reading on... Set Stats Name: 41588 The Joker Theme: Licensed / BrickHeadz Year: 2017 Pieces: 151 Minifigs: N/A Price: USD $9.99, CA $12.99, DE 9.99€, UK £9.99 Resources: Brickset, Bricklink, Lego Shop Packaging All BrickHeadz sets come in the same size box (3.6 x 4.8 x 3.1) and 41588 The Joker is no exception. The box features both a large image of the BrickHeadz figure itself (as well as the theme's logo) and an image of its source material—in this case a particularity maniacal laughing Joker. In this regard, I do wonder if the use of the crazy face Joker minifigure is appropriate, considering the BrickHeadz built after him is somewhat less expressive in the facial department. Still, the inclusion of such a comparison picture is welcomed. As with all the other BrickHeadz boxes, this one also comes with a reverse side showing the sub-theme group and that horrendous black wall of text (which I describe in depth in my 41585 Batman review). The box contains one instruction booklet, two bags (one big, one small), as well as a loose 4x6 black plate for the base. Interesting Parts Of the four Lego Batman Movie characters depicted by BrickHeadz, 41588 The Joker has the most printed pieces. These include two standardized eyes, his lips on a white 1x4 tile, and the two separate bricks that make up the front of his torso—all of which are all printed with great detail. Particularly his tie on the 1x2 brick which like the Joker minifigure in the Lowrider set, is dotted with cute tiny green skulls. Like all BrickHeadz, Joker also comes with numerous—as in fourteen—1x2x2 modified bricks in Light Bley. He also comes with ten green quarter melon tiles, various Dark Purple pieces such as 1x1 bricks, and even two Light Bright Blue 1x1 plates. All in all 41588 The Joker is a good haul, particularly in the green slope brick department which may make this figure tempting to part out. Build The Joker is internally comprised of almost entirely modified stud bricks. Still, the designers had the insight to include a well placed pink 2x2 brick, which is hilarious. 41588 The Joker is the most complicated build of the Lego Batman Movie BrickHeadz, although some of that is due to building in mirror form, repeating various shapes and curves with the bricks over and over. Unlike say Batman, you cannot simply skip steps and start building at a fast pace. The Joker demands attention! After you complete the figure, you then build the standard BrickHeadz base, which is comprised of only four pieces but looks wonderful nonetheless. Completed Figure The most immediate and noticeable thing about the Joker BrickHeadz is his massive flowing green hair. Joker’s hair makes up the bulk of the figure's brick count—which at 151 pieces is the most part heavy BrickHeadz character in this first wave. In comparison to his dark nemesis Batman, Joker has a whopping 60 more pieces at the same price point. Considering the relative small size of BrickHeadz sets, that’s nothing to scoff at. But while the hair is indeed nice,other aspects of this figure shouldn't be overlooked. The use of 1x1 plates in Light Bight Blue for eye shadow is inspired; they really sell the clown appearance. Well that and the lipstick. Now if there are any downsides, it may have to be the uncharacteristic lack of accessories. Considering all the tools and toys the Joker uses, it’s rather a shame that nothing was included for him to hold. But really it’s the black 4x4 hip plate that stands out to me as strange. Why is that not purple? It seems too low to be a belt, and it really just looks off. Considering Joker already uses that piece in purple, I do find it weird that it was not used here as well. There is also the matter of weight distribution. While Batman and Robin are not necessarily affected by this, Batgirl and especially Joker are. Due to the huge amount of parts used for Joker's hair and the fact that the figure's base is not centered, the Joker has a tendency to fall over backwards. Considering BrickHeadz are more for display than play it shouldn't be too much of an issue, assuming your shelves are level that is. Conclusion With the wind flowing through his hair, 41588 The Joker is flying by the competition. The level of detail in the hair alone makes this figure collectible and I'm sure many people will buy him in tandem with Batman. Score Design: 5/5 - The Joker has translated very well from minifigure to BrickHeadz. His hair piece in particular turned out well when scaled up with bricks. Parts: 5/5 - The substantial number of green melon tiles, slopes, and purple pieces are very useful outside of the figure. Build: 5/5 - Again, the hair is very well done, and its flowing appearance is very appealing. Compared to other figures, the build is interesting, if repetitive. Value for Price: 5/5 - The Joker has the most pieces out of the first BrickHeadz wave while retaining the same low price point. Good value Overall: (20/20) A Eurobricks BrickHeadz Reviews: 41585 Batman, 41586 Batgirl, 41587 Robin, 41588 The Joker, 41595 Belle, 41596 Beast, 41589 Captain America, 41590 Iron Man, 41591 Black Widow, 41592 The Hulk
  24. Review: 41587 Robin

    BrickHeadz is an exciting new Lego theme that depicts our favorite characters from movies, TV shows, games, and comics into fun and stylized collectible forms. Each set contains a brick built figure with a build-able base, that includes a printed tile piece denoting the figure's wave number. Wave one consists of twelve unique and colorful characters based on The Lego Batman Movie, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Disney's Beauty and the Beast and Pirates of the Caribbean. BrickHeadz is an exclusive theme from Lego, which means that you can only find the BrickHeadz sets at Lego brand retail stores and online from Lego Shop. Before I begin this review, I would like to give my sincerest thanks to The LEGO Group (TLG) who have provided this set, and other wave one BrickHeadz sets, to Eurobricks making this review possible. The opinions expressed in this review are my own. Introduction Oh Dick…that boy is all over the place. I’ll be honest in saying I’m not a big fan of the character (Batman works alone!), but I was very much impressed with the latest version depicted in the Lego Batman Movie. Granted there wasn’t much competition, but Michael Cera did a spectacular job nonetheless. That said, on a related note and sorry for the spoilers, but I do find that 41587 Robin is perhaps the weakest figure from this first wave of BrickHeadz. Want to know why? Read on! Set Stats Name: 41587 Robin Theme: Licensed / BrickHeadz Year: 2017 Pieces: 101 Minifigs: N/A Price: USD $9.99, CA $12.99, DE 9.99€, UK £9.99 Resources: Brickset, Bricklink, Lego Shop Packaging The BrickHeadz sets all come in the same size box (3.6 x 4.8 x 3.1), and 41587 Robin is no exception. As with all BrickHeadz sets, the box also includes a image of its source material, in this case an excited and roaring-to-go Robin minifigure. Inside the box is one instruction booklet, two part bags--one small and one large--and a loose 4x6 black plate which is used for the base. Interesting Parts As with all BrickHeadz, 41587 Robin comes with a number of useful printed and uncommon pieces. He comes of course with the printed 2x4 black wave indication tile and the standardized BrickHeadz eyes, but he also comes with a nicely printed, sharply detailed, Robin costume on a 1x4 red brick. Robin also makes use of some BrickHeadz standards, such as fourteen 1x2x2 modified bricks in Light Bley, which is a relatively new piece and one that's sure to become the Lego equivalent of penny candy after a few months of BrickHeadz being on the market. But on the less common side, Robin also comes with two reddish brown modified plates, with side studs. For the color, this is a rather new piece that's only in a few sets--one of which being 41595 Belle. But most notably, Robin comes with two life preserver pieces in black--a piece which in that color is rare and has most often shown up only in modular buildings, as well as the recent Arkham Asylum set. Build I will note that as I'm reviewing the first wave of BrickHeadz, I'm doing so in numerical order. With that in mind, Robin does appear to have an above average build process. Granted I've just constructed Batman and Batgirl, who are particularly similar to each other in that regard. Still, Robin is fun to construct because of his use of bright colors and part variations. Like Batgirl, you'll find that Robin too uses a simple yellow 1x4 plate to give the suggestion of a utility belt. Here they technique works just as good, if not better, on Robin than Batgirl--Robin's belt now also alludes to the fact that his shirt continues underneath the belt, which is particularly accurate. Speaking of accuracy, when building Robin you'll also see a leg/hip variation. Using two additional tan plates, with a 2x2 green plate instead of the standardized 2x4 size, the aforementioned combinations create an enhanced emphasis on his um...open uncovered hips. Completed Figure I just have to say it. It’s the glasses, I don't like them. I understand the intent behind them, and I love the use of the life preservers, but they just don’t work in combination with the standardized (black) BrickHeadz eye tiles. Robin’s goggles in the film have green lenses—why are they not green here? The 1x2 tile linking the lenses together doesn’t translate into anything other than a giant block on his face. The whole thing; the eyes, the ears, the hair, to me just comes off looking like a monkey. There I said it! Still, I will note that my initial impressions of Robin have soften. Having him in hand, I do find him vastly more appealing. His colorful getup is welcomed, and I do particularly like his cape which looks appropriately child like. Conclusion 41587 Robin is indeed a nice figure. But when compared to other BrickHeadz, he doesn't hold up as well in the design department. Still, he would make a wonderful addition to one's collection, if given the chance. Score Design: 3/5 - There's some questionable choices going on here. The glasses haven't translated very well. Parts: 5/5 - Speaking of glasses, those life preservers are particularly desirable. Build: 5/5 - Robin stands out from his Bat-family with variation in construction and color. Value for Price: 3/5 - Considering the quality of characters like Joker and Batgirl, Robin comes up at the back of the pack for overall desirability.

  25. Review: 41586 Batgirl

    BrickHeadz is an exciting new Lego theme that depicts our favorite characters from movies, TV shows, games, and comics into fun and stylized collectible forms. Each set contains a brick built figure with a build-able base, that includes a printed tile piece denoting the figure's wave number. Wave one consists of twelve unique and colorful characters based on The Lego Batman Movie, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Disney's Beauty and the Beast and Pirates of the Caribbean. BrickHeadz is an exclusive theme from Lego, which means that you can only find the BrickHeadz sets at Lego brand retail stores and online from Lego Shop. Before I begin this review, I would like to give my sincerest thanks to The LEGO Group (TLG) who have provided this set, and other wave one BrickHeadz sets, to Eurobricks making this review possible. The opinions expressed in this review are my own. Introduction In my opinion, one of the greatest things about The Lego Batman Movie is that it has provided us, as builders, with one of the best gifts ever: Dark Purple. Think back ten years and you’d have to scour the Earth to find sets that could provide this many parts in such a beautiful color, let alone at such a good price! Point being, what I will say next might be shocking too—don’t scrap this fig for that tasty tasty color—41586 Batgirl is beautiful as is and you’d be hard pressed to take her apart once you place her on your shelf. But if you need some more convincing, read on: Set Stats Name: 41586 Batgirl Theme: Licensed / BrickHeadz Year: 2017 Pieces: 99 Minifigs: N/A Price: USD $9.99, CA $12.99, DE 9.99€, UK £9.99 Resources: Brickset, Bricklink, Lego Shop Packaging The BrickHeadz sets all come in the same size box (3.6 x 4.8 x 3.1), and 41586 Batgirl is no exception. The box features both a clear look at the figure herself, but also at her inspiration: the Batgirl minifigure. In my opinion she made the leap from minifig to figure very well. Inside the box contains an instruction manual, two bags (one small and one large) and a lose 2x6 plate for the base. Interesting Parts Now I did say earlier that you shouldn’t part out this build for that juicy dark purple…but if there’s one part that might be really tempting, it’s the printed 1x4 brick with the Batgirl symbol. Now yes, I did say in my Batman review that a bat symbol brick was boring and that it was branded on everything already...but, this is Batgirl symbol, which automatically makes it cooler. I can see that brick easily being incorporated into a number of fun custom Batgirl vehicles and I hope to find that the to be case as people start collecting BrickHeadz. Clearly, my Batgirl minifigure has already claimed her favorite piece... In terms of other bricks however, there are a number of spectacular purple pieces included. I won't list them, because that's basically the entire set frankly, but the two blank dark purple nexo-shields stood out to me. The only other printed pieces for the figure are those standard to BrickHeadz; the distinct eye tiles and the 2x4 printed wave plate. additionally of note, is the dark red 2x2 modified plate, which in that color is exclusive to this set. 41586 Batgirl also comes with (two, one being an extra) yellow Batarangs, which is nice as that color variant is new and very much appreciated. Build 41586 Batgirl shares a similar construction to that of Batman, which does me she's on the somewhat boring side. While here multi colored bricks do provide splashes of change, her build process is largely just stacking bricks without much technique. Its only when constructing her cowl do things start to really divert from Batman--Batgirl features a sharped eared cowl, which utilizes two nexo-shield tiles. In other respects however, Batgirl is very much like Batman--their cape construction for instance is identical, only color swapped. And as with all BrickHeadz, you construct a base for the figure, using only four pieces. Completed Figure If I had to pick a standout from the first wave of the BrickHeadz line, Batgirl might be the one. The color combinations worked well on the minifigure version, but here they somehow work even better. The purple pops, the yellow glows, the dark read hair just works, and the nougat skin tone just feels right. Both were based on the same film character design, but I manage to find the BrickHeadz version more charming, alluring, and perfect. Now if there were one issue I'd have to pick at, it would perhaps be the unfortunate tendency Batgirl has to fall over. Due to the weight of the bricks on her head, hair, and cape, along with the limited studs attachment points on the off-center base, Batgirl like 41588 The Joker, tends to tip over a lot. It's an unfortunate side affect, but one that should be noted. Conclusion A must have in my opinion, 41586 Batgirl is a standout of the first BrickHeadz wave and as such she'll make a perfect addition to any collection. Score Design: 5/5 - Batgirl's design is somewhat simple, but her colorful appearance helps make up for it. Parts: 5/5 - Dark purple! Build: 5/5 - While similar to Batman, Batgirl has enough variations going to raise the interest level. Price: 5/5 - Getting so many nice pieces at this price is good, let alone a character difficult to part out after the first build.
