After yesterday’s reveal that 23 more LEGO BrickHeadz will be released this year, the speculation about the possible characters continues.
It was announced yesterday that at least 23 more LEGO BrickHeadz characters will be released this year, with Brick Fanatics tracking which ones have been announced and which have been rumoured so far. The list narrowed down the unknown characters to just 10, but it is unclear if that is 10 slots for characters, or 10 sets – the two packs confuse matters slightly.
A bit more digging has revealed which pop culture favourites might be appearing in this collectible LEGO line, starting with a Tweet in reaction to the Brick Fanatics article.
I’ve heard rumours of Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Jack Skellington and Sally, Dagobah Luke and Yoda and Peter Venkman and Slimer coming out this year!

Some of the names mentioned by Jacen match up with speculation on Reddit, where the following potential LEGO BrickHeadz sets are named:
- Star Wars 41619 Darth Vader
- Star Wars 41627 Luke Skywalker and Yoda
- Star Wars 41628 Princess Leia
- 41629 Boba Fett
- 41612 Steve & Creeper
- 41617 Elsa
- 41618 Anna & Olaf
- 41624 Mickey Mouse
- 41625 Minnie Mouse
The list seems to contain a bunch of likely sets, all based on licencing partners that the LEGO Group has a relationship with. A single release 41629 Boba Fett was also mentioned when the exclusive Comic Con version was released last year.
Jack Skellington and Sally also seems plausible, as LEGO BrickHeadz is a theme that visits some slightly more obscure properties – and The Nightmate Before Christmas has a commited cult following.
After the release of the Back to the Future inspired 41611 Marty McFly and Doc Brown set, Ghostbusters seems an extremely likely candidate for a set, suggesting that the LEGO Group is putting all of that market research from the Ideas platform to good use. So it would not be fanciful to expect to see Peter Venkman and Slimer get represented in the angular format.
All rumours should be treated as such until officially confirmed by the LEGO Group.
The current LEGO BrickHeadz sets are available now from shop.LEGO.com.
