With black-eyed Pop! Vinyl figures taking over the world, block-maker LEGO seemingly wanted in on the action with their ‘BrickHeadz’ range. Next for the treatment? Doc and Marty from Back to the Future.
It isn’t their first foray into LEGO, with a take on their famous De Lorean time machine hitting a few years back, complete with minifigs of the pair. But now they’re bigger, bolder and most definitely more square, and due to be available anytime now.
They join a series that has so far bestowed upon us all sorts of licensed properties given the cubist treatment, ranging from various DC and Marvel superheroes through to Disney, Star Wars and The LEGO Batman Movie characters. Following these Back to the Future releases, Harry Potter and Hermione Granger are expected to hit.
Despite being the absolute LEGO nuts that we are, we reckon this series looks a bit naff. That its name rhymes with “d-ckheads’ probably doesn’t help, either.
