The other new LEGO BrickHeadz Pets set that will be released on March 1 will be the Goldfish (40442). It has 186 pieces and retails for $14.99.
The Goldfish is an extremely easy build and it uses the same foundation as all the BrickHeadz do with the 1X2X1 2/3 W/4 Knobs. There are some trans-orange half-circle tiles all around it to show off the scales. The tail uses a number of different slope pieces to get the shape recognizable. The face uses a 2×2 round tile with a hole to simulate it blowing bubbles.
The Fry is pretty much the same as the regular Goldfish but in a smaller scale. All of the details the bigger one has, the Fry has a well. The only issue I have with this is that the fins on the tail are the exact same build and they look a little too big relative to the size of the fish.
The fish has a blue base that is supposed to resemble the bottom of a fish tank. It is the most decorative of all the Pets bases as it also has some coral and plants on the back. The front of it has an interchangeable plate that is decorated with bubbles and plants which are stickers. Both fish are on some trans-clear bricks to show them floating in the water.
The LEGO BrickHeadz Goldfish (40442) is the most simplest set out of the four in the new Pets line. The build doesn’t have much going on to it but the details are are sufficient enough to show what the animals should be. The base does have more detailing than the others ones so that’s an extra. I’m not sure why LEGO didn’t do it for the other ones because they do enhance the set even if it’s just something small.
Thank you to LEGO for sending in this set for me to review. The content above represents my own opinion and not the company. Review sets sent in does not guarantee a positive review.
