This year's seasonal BrickHeadz have on the whole been excellent and now that we are not being bombarded with dozens of the blocky characters every few weeks it is very welcome when a new one becomes available.
The Christmas one has just hit the brand store shelves but before we get ahead of ourselves, let's take a look at 40352 Scarecrow which was released a few weeks ago, in good time for Thanksgiving in the USA and Canada.
Everything that typifies a scarecrow is present and correct: patched up dungarees, arms held up with a stick, straw for hair and a pointed hat.
Unlike many BrickHeadz that skimp on details on the back of the head, this one looks splendid from the rear.
Seasonal BrickHeadz are provided with an elaborate display stand rather than just a plan 6x6 plate and this one is particularly attractive, with a picket fence and vegetables growing on either side.
The 2x2 round 'stick' in the middle is, of course,
to shove up the scarecrow's a... to support the makeshift man and hold him upright.
This is easily on a par with other seasonal BrickHeadz and in many ways better, thanks to an interesting stand and detailing on the back of the head.
It's an unusual, colourful and attractive model and, like many of his blocky companions, it's a pretty good parts pack, too.
It's now available in brand stores and at LEGO.com priced at £9.99 / $9.99.
