Stylish Lego Brickheadz figures featuring DC and Marvel heroes are coming

Brickheadz, Brickheadz, roly-poly Brickheadz. Brickheadz, Brickheadz, eat them up, yum!” Okay, so maybe the song doesn’t particularly work in this case, but dammit, I’m going to sing it anyway. Also, eating LEGOs is definitely a choking hazard. So, you know, don't do it.

During last year’s San Diego Comic Con, LEGO revealed a batch of new sets based upon THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE, CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, and AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON. Then, after a bit of internet chicanery, a user by the name of CM4Sci uncovered a series of images that offer us a better look at the imminent line of LEGO Marvel and DC Superheroes brand. However, it’s worth noting that Brickheadz are not your typical LEGO fare, in that they’re primarily meant to be displayed rather than played with to any great extent.

This new line of DC Brickheadz figures will feature characters from the forthcoming THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE, and will include iconic gothamites like Batman, Batgirl, the Joker, and Robin. On the other side of the Big 2, the Marvel figures that will be offered are as follows: Black Widow, Captain America, Iron Man, and Hulk.

Holy collectibles, Batman! Yeah, this is all I need, another super cool figures line to add to my ever-growing collection of Funko Pop! figurines. I saw this in jest, of course. I’ll probably wind up with at least one or two of these Brickheadz figures.

The figures will be priced within the range of $15-$20 and are rumored to be available at local retailers beginning on February 15th. Meanwhile, THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE swoops into theaters on February 10, 2017.
