Besides the new LEGO Jurassic World sets, LEGO Star Wars Solo sets, and LEGO Incredibles 2 sets (see links at the end of this post), another new set that sort of sneaked in mid-month is the #41611 LEGO BrickHeadz Marty McFly & Doc Brown characters from Back to the Future. Both characters have some nice details and prints, and even though they are very square and brick-built, they are instantly recognizable. 🙂
Doc Brown is in his white overalls with a toolbelt, and holds a detachable DeLorean time machine controller. His hair is white and messy, as it should be, although maybe not wild enough compared to the original character. Marty wears his red puffer vest. I really like how LEGO designers did the details of the vest – simple yet very effective. The shirt underneath is a printed piece. Marty’s only accessory is a camcorder.
The #41611 LEGO BrickHeadz Marty McFly & Doc Brown set is 240 pieces, and is available directly from LEGO at the LEGO BrickHeadz section of the Online LEGO Shop. Various retailers might also carry the set, but I’m not sure which ones. Also, remember that the #41514 LEGO BrickHeadz Owen & Blue set from Jurassic World, and the #41613 Mr. Incredible & Frozone set from The Incredibles are also now available.
And, coming on May 1st is the #41610 LEGO BrickHeadz Tactical Batman & Superman from Justice League. Both characters are nicely detailed with some very fine printing.
Another LEGO BrickHeadz set I highly recommend is the #41597 LEGO BrickHeadz Go Brick Me customizer kit. Even if you are not into BrickHeadz in general, this set is a great way to practice interesting building techniques while having fun turning yourself and your friends/family into BrickHeadz characters. We talked about the set previously here: LEGO BrickHeadz Go Brick Me Review
LEGO BrickHeadz are very popular with collectors who want to get them all, but it is also perfectly fine to just get a couple of your favorite characters, or get the sets for the interesting parts and building techniques. You can find the currently available sets under the LEGO BrickHeadz section of the Online LEGO Shop.
