LEGO Seasonal BrickHeadz Valentine’s Bee (40270) Review

LEGO Seasonal BrickHeadz Valentine's Bee (40270)

In previous years, LEGO has released various Seasonal sets for the holidays which included vignettes and brick-built characters. For 2018, that has changed dramatically as LEGO has incorporated the Seasonal sets into the LEGO BrickHeadz line. A few weeks ago, all of the 2018 LEGO Seasonal BrickHeadz were revealed including the one that is available starting today, the Valentine’s Bee (40270). It consists of 140 pieces and retails for $9.99.

LEGO Seasonal Year of the Dog (40235) Available in February in the US

LEGO Seasonal Year of the Dog (40235)

I have the February 2018 LEGO Store Calendar and one of the main promotions for the month is the LEGO Seasonal Year of the Dog (40235) set. Apparently for this year, it is not an Asian country exclusive as we will be able to get it from February 16-28 with a purchase of $88 or more, while supplies last. The Dog joins a number of previous animals that have been released that are from the Chinese zodiac.

Coincidentally, February 16 is Lunar New Year so it’s nice to see that LEGO has also decided to celebrate the event with this set here in the US. As for the purchase price of $88, the number 88 symbolizes fortune and good luck in Chinese culture. I am very looking forward to the LEGO Year of the Dog set as I am born on this zodiac animal and don’t have to resort to the secondary market to get a copy of it.

LEGO Seasonal Christmas Build Up (40253) – Day 24

LEGO Seasonal Christmas Build Up (40253)

For the final day of the LEGO Seasonal Christmas Build Up (40253), we have someone that is synonymous with the holiday but does it live up to expectations. The build is the jolly man himself but he looks very weird. I do like that the build uses a white croissant piece for the moustache but that’s about it. The face is able to swivel and he seems to be slumping over just a bit. It’s unfortunate that the last build for the set is somewhat of a letdown especially from yesterday’s build. It probably would’ve been better if they were switched.

I’ll have a wrap-up post about the LEGO Seasonal Christmas Build Up tomorrow to fully close out this set.

LEGO Seasonal Christmas Build Up (40253) – Day 23

LEGO Seasonal Christmas Build Up (40253)

In the second to last day of the LEGO Seasonal Christmas Build Up (40253), today’s model is probably the best one out of the set. For Day 23, we have a great looking Christmas tree. It’s a simple build that uses mostly slope pieces for the shape of the tree and it’s decorated with ornaments which are just a variety of translucent studs. The star also uses some trans-yellow studs as well. As I said earlier, this Christmas tree is the best build out of the set so far and it probably the best Christmas tree LEGO has released in general.

LEGO Seasonal Christmas Build Up (40253) – Day 22

LEGO Seasonal Christmas Build Up (40253)

The LEGO Seasonal Christmas Build Up (40253) is slowly coming to an end and for today’s build, we have something that most people want to receive during the holidays. For the Day 22 build, we have a couple of colorfully wrapped presents. It may seem that the presents are separated but they are actually connected by a 2×4 plate.

LEGO Seasonal Christmas Build Up (40253) – Day 21

LEGO Seasonal Christmas Build Up (40253)

We’re down to the last five days of the LEGO Seasonal Christmas Build Up (40253) and if you’re someone who lives at a place that snows a lot, you may be familiar with this vehicle. For Day 21, we have a red and black snowplow that doesn’t look too bad. It uses some black cheese slopes for the plow and there’s even a bed on the back. There are some 1×2 plate withe bars that could be sed for treads.

LEGO Seasonal Christmas Build Up (40253) – Day 20

LEGO Seasonal Christmas Build Up (40253)

After yesterday’s terrible looking model for the LEGO Seasonal Christmas Build Up (40253), today we have something more fitting for the holiday and refreshing and the same time. For Day 20, we have a cup of hot chocolate which uses a SNOT technique for the red cup and a red handle piece for the handle. The use of the white cupcake piece finishes off the build representing steam coming out of the cup.
