We’ve said it before, the LEGO BrickHeadz project continues with no end in sight! If you’re a fan of them, today we have 7 new ones. The first 5 are from the upcoming Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme that will include sets from the original movies and Fantastic Beasts.
Today LEGO unveiled the magical new collection of Harry Potter BrickHeadz including the 5 shown above. Hermione, Ron Weasley, Dumbledore, Harry Potter and Hedwig. Let’s take a look at them in detail as they’ve got some unique characteristics are are sold as 3 sets in total.
41616 Hermione Granger
127 pieces, $9.99 US – Available Jul 1, 2018
Hermione is the only solo figure in the group, and probably the most basic of the 5. Her skirt is a printed 1×4 brick, she has her uniform tie and v-neck and comes with a brown book, probably loaded with spells.
41615 Harry Potter and Hedwig
180 pieces, $14.99US – Available Jul 1, 2018
This Harry Potter and Hedwig combo is likely to be very popular with Harry fans, and then for AFOLs who recognize that Hedwig’s feather printed sloped-tiles are VERY useful pieces.
Harry himself is printed with the Hogwarts crest, his lightning bolt and his iconic orange and red scarf. Also of note is that Hedwig’s eyes are printed on yellow 1×1 round tiles instead of black like most of the other BrickHeadz we’ve had.
41621 Ron Weasley & Albus Dumbledore
245 pieces, $19.99 – Available Jul 1, 2018
Ron and Dumbledore will be a US Target exclusive set so it’ll be harder to get than others. I’m sure the raiders will wipe out Target stores as fast as they put them out.
Ron’s figure is perhaps more basic than Hermione featuring 2 scarf prints and his school uniform. Dumbledore is a comparable trove of special pieces. The repeating pattern on his head is gorgeous as is the pattern on his robe front and sleeve. His eyes are the same eye pattern as others, but printed on transparent 1×2 tiles.
What do you think? Are these figures better than the previous offerings? Will you buy them to display or for parts mostly? Tell us in the comments below.
