LEGO has produced surprisingly few BrickHeadz models during 2019, focusing almost exclusively upon holiday figures. 40367 Lady Liberty seems accordingly interesting and strikes an appealing balance between accurate detail and the unique BrickHeadz aesthetic in my opinion.
Furthermore, this figure incorporates numerous sand green pieces which are rarely available and I anticipate some unusual building techniques, based upon official images. On that basis, I have been looking forward to assembling 40367 Lady Liberty for my BrickHeadz collection.
The Completed Model
BrickHeadz models are traditionally displayed on black bases and the Statue of Liberty is no exception. Despite its exaggerated proportions, the statue is immediately recognisable and the sand green colour scheme looks wonderful, corresponding with the original structure. Of course, that has also resulted in the provision of some interesting pieces which rarely appear in sand green, including basic 2x4 plates and 2x2 tiles.
The construction techniques employed within this model are simpler than I was anticipating, although the crown is somewhat unusual. Five pointed sections are fitted around an octagonal ring plate, much like 21042 Statue of Liberty from the Architecture theme. The face looks familiar too, matching past BrickHeadz characters and featuring the same printed eyes.
However, the hair includes remarkable detail, effectively combining smooth curved slopes with some exposed studs. The resultant texture seems reasonably faithful to the source material and I love how the shape of the crown has been continued on each side. No windows are included towards the front but Lady Liberty does carry the tabula ansata which is represented by a plain 1x2 tile.
Her famous torch, on the other hand, looks more elaborate. 21042 Statue of Liberty includes Captain Salazar's hair piece from 71042 Silent Mary, albeit moulded in pearl gold rather than black. The same technique appears here and this flame is connected to the torch using a lipstick element which seems interesting. Moreover, the textured dress looks magnificent in my opinion, again mixing exposed studs with curved slopes to good effect.
The most popular BrickHeadz models exhibit innovative building techniques, differentiating them from the standard template. 40367 Lady Liberty certainly conforms to this trend, although I was anticipating greater complexity, perhaps matching 41629 Boba Fett which remains my favourite BrickHeadz model at the moment.
Nevertheless, this is an impressive addition to the range and represents an inexpensive alternative to 21042 Statue of Liberty, costing £9.99 or $9.99. For that reason, I would recommend this set but think other BrickHeadz creations are potentially more appealing, including some of the alternative Seasonal designs.
