“Solo: A Star Wars Story” LEGO BrickHeadz Review

The perfect school night sets for Star Wars fans...

Han & Chewie “look great…”

Some folks collect Funko Pops. Some people collect Dorbs; some still collect bobbleheads.

I collect BrickHeads; LEGO Star Wars BrickHeadz, thank you very much.

And the recent release of Han Solo and Chewbacca BrickHeads provided the first two Solo: A Star Wars Story collectibles to make it into my collection.

Truthfully, a review of BrickHeadz can’t be overly involved. Completed sets are the size of said Funko Pops, etc., have a short brick count, and — for lack of a better term — are cute.

Ergo: My son Scott, 6, and I pulled Han and Chewie together in a little less than two-hours.

Surprisingly intricate, all the while I found myself wondering how exactly the small pieces would transform into the alter egos of Alden Ehrenreich and Joonas Suotamo (or their hair).

When it comes down to it, these are favorites in my house for a solid mid-week build; when pulling out a more significant box on a school night is a little too time-consuming.

And beyond our Star Wars sets — we have all of them, Han, Chewie, Rey, Kylo, Finn, Phasma — we have LEGO friends from Pirates of the Carribean, DC, and Marvel floating around the house.

And the price is right, as most of the sets can be found for around $9.99.
