We thought we would throw a little Lego "Brickheadz" Beauty And The Beast review at you today. Fitting, seeing as how the live action motion picture makes it's United States debut tomorrow, St. Patrick's Day, 3-17-2017! To say the least, we are very excited for the new movie, and yeah, maybe the green beer too! We have been fans of Belle and the Beast since childhood. With that being said...onto our review!
Released Spring 2017, Lego's Brickheadz are just what the doctor ordered. They are a perfect way to collect and display your favorite movie, TV, game, and comic book characters. Standing just over 3" tall without the baseplate and comprised of 139 pieces, Belle (set 41595) #11, is small enough to display tabletop at home or in the office. She includes all of Belle's iconic features, which include, her original beautiful yellow ball gown, her flowing long brown hair with ribbon, earrings, and of course the iconic fairy tale rose, which she holds in her right hand. She stands on her baseplate which includes a number "1," indicating series number, and the original Brickheadz logo. Great looking piece!
Released at the same time as Belle, the Beast (set 41596) #12, is comprised of 116 pieces. His most noticeable features include his iconic blue evening waistcoat, mane, horns, and tail. The detailed pieces reflect his most noticeable features in extraordinarily bright, recognizable colors. He also stands just over 3" tall without the baseplate. He looks just splendid standing beside his love, Belle. A true classic, if you're a Disney fan.
Both Brickheadz retail in the United States for $9.99. A small drop in the bucket for what you get in return; a constant throwback to the great memories of the classic childhood animated fairy tale! We recommend picking these two up at your local Lego store or online at shop.lego.com. They are sure to please and will possibly grow in value as time progresses! Until our next Lego review, over and out!
