LEGO BrickHeadz Go Brick Me (41597) Revealed

Yesterday at the New York Toy Fair, we saw a few new products coming down the pipeline but the most interesting one to me that I want to feature is the new LEGO BrickHeadz Go Brick Me (41597). You basically have the mascot of the BrickHeadz line, Nonnie, as well as a number of parts to customize it to your liking.

Coming in at 708 pieces and only retailing for $29.99, this set is a great deal and an even better one if you’re just buying it for a parts pack. As you can see from the image below, there are a number of different parts ranging in a variety of colors. Some of the more interesting parts are the new elements for glasses which includes round and square eyeglass frames. There’s also a sticker sheet to give more detailing to your BrickHeadz as well.

Thanks to BZPower and Zusammengebaut for providing the images.

LEGO picked up three awards last night for LEGO Star Wars BB-8 as the Construction Toy of the Year, LEGO Boost for Tech Toy of the Year, and the LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon for the Specialty Toy of the Year. This is the second year in a row that LEGO has won for Construction and Specialty Toy of the Year.

With some of the new LEGO products coming out this year, I’m sure we’ll be seeing LEGO again on the ballot in a few categories and they have a great chance for the coveted Toy of the Year award.
