LEGO latest offering for the LEGO BrickHeadz line is something that’s really interesting and different than what they’ve been doing which is La Catrina (40492). La Catrina is designed by José Guadalupe Posada and is the icon of the Mexican Día de Muertos, or Day of the Dead. The set has 141 pieces and will be available on August 1 for $9.99.
She wears a very colorful dress that’s in magenta with green and yellow accents. The dress is pretty fluffy as shown with the slopes on all four sides. The front of the dress has a printed 1×4 brick to show the collar.
La Catrina’s face is also printed with various tiles and it is decorated with some traditional designs as seen on other art pieces such as the dots around the face and the stitched mouth.
Her magenta colored hat is filled with decorations in the front lip which includes some flowers.
Overall, the LEGO BrickHeadz La Catrina (40492) is a pretty unique BrickHeadz since it doesn’t really fit into any of their subthemes. I suppose it could be be Halloween related since the character is to celebrate the Day of the Dead. I really like the designs on it and I’m sure fans will customize it to their liking.
