LEGO has unveiled another BrickHeadz twin pack, 41626 Groot and Rocket, on their official Twitter feed. This set makes good use of some pearl silver claws, representing Rocket Raccoon's whiskers.

Which of the upcoming BrickHeadz twin packs are you most looking forward to? Let us know in the comments and look out for a review of 41621 Ron Weasley & Albus Dumbledore very soon.

Groot looks better than Rocket Racoon, he looks more like Hannah Barbara, s secret squirrell tbh..

Getting fed up with Brickheadz completely now. Used to be able to tolerate them, but the designs just seem more and more rushed as the range goes on.

If I didn't know it was meant to be Rocket, I'd have never have known at first glance. Pearl silver for the whiskers? wouldn't they have recast the part in white to make it more realistic rather then cheap to produce? As for Groot, the angular design of brickheads really doesn't suit a grown organic plant creature such as him. The design lines also look like scuff marks rather then design shaping too.

hmmm..... looks like groot is holding his game console... that will be a useful piece.

That looks so great. One of the best brickheadz packs I've ever seen.

I’m assuming the thing groot is holding is a tile for his space invader game from infinity war?
Just need a drax and a mantis for the whole guardians now

Groot looks okay, but Rocket has to be one of the worst yet. It looks nothing like him to me. Ron and Albus on the other hand represent the better builds of the Brickheadz line.

Boooring. This is a problem. Would anyone prefer these to proper sets?

I think these look really good, and am slowly warming up to Brickheadz. Rocket looks cute and those printed pieces for Groot would be great to decorate a riverbank. I bought 41485 Finn and 41594 Captain Armando Salazar over the weekend for my last ToysRUs purchase ever, as they were the only LEGO left and were 50% off. I planned on only getting them as cheap parts packs but had to at least put them together once. Well the finished products were much more satisfying that I anticipated and they may stay built for quite awhile. Now I regret not buying more when they had several other characters for 50% off :(

Yes! I want this!

I love Rocket but for the nose the correct part is 1/4 Circle Tile 1X1 in black. I really don't like Groot's color scheme

I thought Chewbacca (beaver) was the worst but Rocket (Squirrel, mouse) now takes first place.

I have to say, with the HP ones being some of the best I have seen, this set goes the other direction. Rocket is by far the worst rendition I have seen yet. Groot is reasonable.

Groot has a bit too much printed/stickers parts for like liking or as Groot would say I am Groot I am Groot I am groot

Rocket Raccoon is hilarious.

This is amazing!!!!! I need them!

This doesn't interest me but a Yondu Brickhead will definitely be interesting.

DaftArcher20968, don't act like we don't get 'proper sets', we get 900 sets a year, we get proper sets, useless sets, trash sets.

Love the set. The design interpretations are fine with me.

Hoping they now do Drax/Mantis to round out the crew!

By in United Kingdom,

does anyone else think that teenage Groot should be done in an Friends minifigure style? he just doesn't seem right at all when he's so stodgy

Gravatar

Well, I think these look great. I'm really digging the smaller BrickHeadz design they've used for Rocket, Yoda, and Hedwig.

Gravatar
By in United States,

They’re kinda adorable.

Even though this is bound to start some controversy, I prefer Funko Pop! figures balanced into my lego hobby. I have never gotten a Brickheadz before, so do they look better in real life as a completed model then they do as just pictures?

Wow, Rocket is so cute :O

Gravatar
By in United States,

Whilst I am not a fan of BrickHeadz, I am so happy about the parts they bring...

We will get 1x4 tiles in dark tan (at last) and the corner the 2x2 cut corner tile in dark than... I really hope that one day we will see the 1x1 brick with stud on the side in dark tan.

I don't understand why they include printed pieces in these £$10-15 sets but not in the more expensive sets, where we get stupid stickers eg. UCS Millennium Falcon!!! ??????

How many more of these are they going to release? I don't really mind; I'm pretty good at ignoring them. But it feels like there are two to three new Brickheadz every week...

Gravatar

One of the major problems with Rocket is his coloring, he's a Raccoon, should be black and white, not brown and tan.. this color choice makes completely no sense plus there's nothing about the shape of his head that says Raccoon, the ears are wrong. It actually looks like he's wearing a pirate hat!

Gravatar
By in United States,

These are adorable! Must haves for me.

The headline grabbed me then i saw Rocket..... oh dear. Nearly as bad as Chewie. (Groot looks cool though)

Gravatar
By in United States,

They look fine to me, given Brickheadz design style constraints. Rocket needs a little grey to mix in with the tan and brown.

Gravatar
By in Hungary,

Brickheadz are rotting on shelves, under a 50% discount label here. No one buys them, even for half price.

Gravatar
By in France,

Two more to add to those I like. This BH range goes better and better IMO. More and more of them that I would like to have...

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Is it just me or does anybody else find brickheadz a bit pointless and that there are too many of them now? Most of them just look a bit weird to me!!!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@mrdoofa: Its not just you. They seem to be the marmite of the lego world.

Gravatar
By in United States,

So they finally get Rocket's color correct. Now they need to release a minifigure with brown fur instead of grey.

Gravatar

I am (not) Groot.

When will it be released?

By in Germany,

There's more of it where they come from..

I also don't get the appeal of this LEGO theme. I just tune out whenever I see a Brickhead. I guess they are making money on it, so I don't begrudge them that, as long as they keep releasing decent large sets as well.

Gravatar
By in United States,

It would be interesting to see numbers on who like Brickheadz and who don’t. 50/50? 40/60? Very divided. I’m not a huge fan but I have several because of the source material. Very cute to display as well.

@chesney107: Smaller sets tend to be produced in exponentially higher numbers than the largest, most expensive sets. As such, the expenses of graphic design, storage space, and production time are spread much more thinly on small sets while simultaneously having a much greater impact on the look of finished models.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I completely understand the hate for Rocket. He just doesn’t look quite right. Honestly though, I think it’s those whiskers that ruin him. Lovely use of parts but Rocket’s whiskers genuinely aren’t that prominent and removing them would make him less likely to be mistaken for a mouse or something.

Groot looks nice though. Needs a little more consistency on the colours. I don’t think that darker brown on the hands blends in too well.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Just when I thought they couldn't get any worse, they surprise me yet again. I really hope this theme goes away soon.

Groot at least looks vaguely like Groot, in a terrible BrickHeadz sort of way, but at least I can tell who the figure is meant to be. Rocket I wouldn't recognize as such if someone hadn't told me who the figure is meant to be. I pretty much detested BrickHeadz already, but these are terrible even by BrickHeadz standards.

Gravatar
By in Singapore,

Looks like Rocket as Captain America in a Pirates of the Caribbean movie.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I don’t understand. Everyone thinks Rocket looks bad, but I think Groot is bad. His colors are off and he’s bland.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Great characters from a fun franchise, but, AGAIN, can someone please explain why LEGO trash (panda) them with...

... THOSE EYES!!!!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

David1985, we don't get sets for all Brickheadz themes...cough...Night At The Museum...

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

There should be a petition against Brickheadz! :D

Gravatar
By in United States,

Powerpuff Girls should be an obvious design choice for Brickheadz due to their big head/ big eyes/ short body characteristics. I'd buy those.

Well, also slave Leia, because.. you know..

Gravatar
By in United States,

Good, but Rocket's whiskers feel kind of off. I'm actually okay with them being in Silver Metallic, but the shaping just feels unusual. Otherwise, I'd say this is a solid set, the colors are really good.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@kinto- as a semi-decent teenage guy I believe women should not be objectified, and while I understand the point of the slave Leia costume that is a weird comment. The only thing I can think of that is weirder is what exactly you plan on doing with that Brickheadz

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I've got to say, my dream 2-pack would be Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna. Either with or without helmets.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

DAMN! I need this set although Rocket doesn't look so good, but Groot is awesome!!!! <3

Gravatar
By in United States,

Looks good but the colors are off.

Eagerly awaiting this set’s release! The rabbit and tree will be welcome additions
