Thumbnail image for Brick Breakdown: LEGO BrickHeadz Series 1

(Written by William) I should start out by saying that this Brick Breakdown segment is going to be a bit different from previous ones. As the LEGO BrickHeadz series uses very similar building techniques in all of the sets, I thought it made more sense to write about the entire series, instead of each separate […]
