At the peak of the BrickHeadz craze back in 2018, the set Go Brick Me was one of the most popular sets of the range – giving builders the chance to create avatars of themselves in BrickHeadz Form. Further customisable figures arrived in the form of Brick and Groom figures in 2020. After a quiet year or two, we have seen an increased number of BrickHeadz released in 2022, and the line continues to innovate:
Today, at LEGO®CON 2022, the LEGO Group’s live-streamed product showcase, we have been given our first look at the 40542 LEGO Brickheadz FC Barcelona Go Brick Me, giving fans of FC Barcelona to create themselves in team livery, or their favourite team member, as a BrickHeadz figure.
Aimed at an audience aged 10 and up, this set has 530 pieces and will launch on August 1st. It has an RRP of 19.99 EUR/19.99 USD/17.99 GBP/29.99 AUD/24.99 CAD.
Kids and fans of FC Barcelona will be thrilled to build a BrickHeadz™ model of themselves playing for one of the world’s biggest football clubs! They can choose from 3 different skin tones, tan, light brown or dark brown; 4 different hair colors, blonde, brown, ginger, or black; and many different hair styles including spikes, ponytails, a mohawk or bald. The shirt features the club’s iconic crest on the front, while there are also 2 sticker sheets for them to add their favorite number on the back.
I can see this appealing to FC Barcelona Fans in particular, but also to soccer/football fans in general. I do wonder if we will start to see sets based on other teams around the world? We have already seen stadium models based on the homes of Real Madrid and Manchester United. With licensing agreements in place, it would be a short order to adapt this set to those teams.
