LEGO BrickHeadz Pets have been around since the beginning of this year, and three more sets will be joining the range on 1st August. Cockatiel, Ginger Tabby and Hamster will all become part of the line-up.
The BrickHeadz Pets range turn popular pets into brick-built figures. They all come in pairs – usually one animal with a baby version. So far, we’ve got Budgie, Goldfish, Shorthair Cats, German Shepherd and Dalmation. The new additions will round the collection out at eight sets – though we wouldn’t be surprised if we see more at some point.
Here’s the lowdown on the three sets. All will be available on 1st August, exclusively from LEGO.com and in LEGO stores, and they’ll retail for £13.49 each.
LEGO BrickHeadz 40481 Cockatiel
- BrickHeadz numbers #135 and #136
- 219 pieces
If you’ve already got the budgies, then the Cockatiel pair are pretty similar. They’re different colours, though, and we love their head feathers.
LEGO BrickHeadz 40480 Ginger Tabby
- BrickHeadz numbers #133 and #134
- 269 pieces
If you have the Shorthair Cats, the shape of the Ginger Tabby and Kitten will be very familiar. But as cat lovers – with a fondness for ginger cats – we think we prefer this set. A nice touch if the tabby’s scarf; it reminds us of A Streetcat Named Bob. Aww.
LEGO BrickHeadz 40482 Hamster
- BrickHeadz numbers #137 and #138
- 243 pieces
We’re not sure if these hamsters do actually look like hamsters, but they’re adorable nonetheless. Just look at their little pink feet and pink cake-slice noses! A-dorable.
