The seasonal series of sets has recently alternated between brick-built characters one year and vignettes the next. This year they are in the form of BrickHeadz and I'm hopeful that the Halloween one will be better than the truly terrifying 40203 Vampire and Bat from 2016.
So, just in time for Halloween tomorrow, let's take a quick look at the third of this year's seasonal sets: 40272 Witch.
Why do witches have green skin? Apparently it's all down to Margaret Hamilton’s emerald-tinted portrayal of the Wicked Witch of the West in film The Wizard of Oz. Before that they were depicted as having normal, or reddish, skin tones.
Her purple dress and pointy lop-sided hat complement her skin colour perfectly. The belt with gold buckle and bow tie help add some interest to the torso.
Her cape, complete with collar, has been reproduced fairly effectively round the back and sides.
There's nothing particularly remarkable about the build or the finished model, although it does have something that few other BrickHeadz depictions of a human have: a nose.
Seasonal BrickHeadz are provided with embellishments to their stand which in this case consists of a cauldron over a fire on the left and a spooky tree and pumpkin on the right.
Unlike other recent Brickheadz, this one comes with a printed tile for the base indicating that it's a seasonal one.
A perfectly competent and attractive model that collectors of BrickHeadz and seasonal sets will wish to acquire. However, if you're neither, it probably won't tempt you to become one.
Someone suggested that we add a quick poll to the end of our reviews and product announcements, so let's see how this goes...
(I suspect we'll work on the options over time...)
