Following the recent rumour list, official images have now turned up on the LEGO Group’s server revealing the first set of characters that will be released as LEGO BrickHeadz. With the DC selection based on The LEGO Batman Movie, and the Marvel batch including four of the Avengers, there are eight super hero based characters on the way.
Brickset has shared images of the following BrickHeadz sets:
- 41585 Batman
- 41586 Batgirl
- 41587 Robin
- 41588 The Joker
- 41589 Captain America
- 41590 Iron Man
- 41591 Black Widow
- 41592 The Hulk
The first few BrickHeadz were released as San Diego Comic Con 2016 exclusives, with this selection due to be released in March after early access in February to members of the LEGO Store VIP program. Two more sets are expected to be Belle and the Beast from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, coinciding with the release of the live-action adaptation.
It is likely that fans will be quick to adapt the style and expand the character selection, although they will need to use more ingenious methods than the printed parts that provide much of the torso detail for these characters. The ‘1’ tile on each stand suggests that multiple series are due, with this just the (second) beginning.
