The LEGO Group has confirmed that at least 23 more LEGO BrickHeadz sets will be released this year.
In the latest LEGO ReBrick contest, fans are asked to build a BrickHeadz version of themselves to be in with the chance of winning an impressive package. Whoever is selected as having built the best BrickHeadz representation will win the following:
41598 The Flash™, 41599 Wonder Woman™, 41600 Aquaman™, 41601 Cyborg™, 41602 Rey, 41603 Kylo Ren™, 41604 Iron Man, 41605 Thanos, 41606 Star-Lord, 41607 Gamora, 41608 Han Solo™, 41609 Chewbacca™, 41597 Go Brick Me and 23 additional LEGO BrickHeadz to be sent once they’re released, which includes 12 Retailer Exclusive LEGO BrickHeadz.
That’s right, another 23 LEGO BrickHeadz, which makes this one of the company’s fastest growing themes. So who are these other 23 BrickHeadz going to be, based on what has already been revealed or rumoured?
The 23 must include the unnamed, but already released sets – so 41611 Marty McFly & Doc Brown, 41613 Mr Incredible & Frozone and 41614 Owen & Blue. Note that the list says “LEGO BrickHeadz”, not “LEGO BrickHeadz sets” – so these two packs probably count as six of the 23.
Also coming up is 41610 Tactical Batman & Superman – so that is another two BrickHeadz, leaving 15 unknown characters.
Every BrickHeadz released so far this year is on the list – except for the seasonal sets, 40270 Valentine’s Bee and 40271 Easter Bunny – so the shop.LEGO.com exclusive seasonal sets are probably not included.
Three more sets are rumoured for later this year – one of which is 41626 Groot and Rocket Raccon, from Avengers: Infinity War. Harry Potter is also expected to join the theme with 41615 Harry Potter & Hedwig and 41616 Hermione, expected in July. That is another five BrickHead characters, bringing the unknown number down to 10.
So who will be the remaining 10 BrickHeadz be? Ant-Man and the Wasp and Aquaman will both be released later this year, and will probably not get many supporting LEGO sets, so BrickHeadz would be a good way to represent those movies. There are plenty of iconic Star Wars characters still in need of the blocky treatment, such as Darth Vader and Princess Leia.
The set that makes predictions hard is 41611 Marty McFly & Doc Brown – if the LEGO Group are mining 1980s movie for inspiration, anything is possible – just look at LEGO Dimensions for a reminder of how far down that particular rabbit hole goes.
The current LEGO BrickHeadz sets are available now from shop.LEGO.com.
