First look at LEGO BrickHeadz Pets 40479 Dalmations

The LEGO BrickHeadz Pets subtheme will expand later this summer with a second breed of dog in 40479 Dalmatians.

The first brick-built pooches arrived in January with 40440 German Shepherd (review), alongside a pair of feline friends in 40441 Shorthair Cats (review). Those two sets were then joined in March by 40442 Goldfish (review) and 40443 Budgie (review).

With all the traditional bases covered (cats, dogs, birds and fish – sorry, hamsters), it looks like the subtheme is now digging into more varieties of those animals – starting with 40479 Dalmatians, which has today been revealed by LEGO Fan Media including Brickset.

As with previous Pets sets, the Dalmatians duo includes a fully-grown dog and a puppy, along with a base on which to place them. It’s due to launch on June 1, alongside a whole bunch of other summer 2021 sets – including the 20th anniversary Harry Potter range – for £13.49 / $14.99 / €14.99.

The character numbers for the Dalmatians are 131 and 132, which means six numbers in the series (133-138) are currently vacant – suggesting another three Pets two-packs may be in the works for later this year. The current batch are available to order now at

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
