The success of the Disney+ series The Mandalorian has sparked a surge of different products everything from t-shirts, socks, toys, and even LEGO. LEGO has several Mandalorian inspired sets coming out this summer. We have our eye on a few and lucky for us we were able to get our hands on the LEGO The Mandalorian and The Child Brickheadz set early. The set does not officially go on sale until August 1st. This set contains 295 pieces and has a cost of $19.99. Before you order it here is what we thought about it.

The Build

The Mandalorian

The build process for the Mandalorian Brickhead was simple even for a Brickhead. The build didn’t take much concentration and was pretty straight forward. The only part that was a little challenging was the visor. I’m still not sure how that part even works. The two front pieces just kind of hover on the front. They are not stud secured. LEGO had to do some interesting techniques to pull off the character’s look. The Mandalorian Brickhead includes his signature weapons a blaster rifle clipped on the back and a blaster pistol in hand. 

Baby Yoda (The Child)

The build for Baby Yoda was really easy. Baby Yoda comes with his hoverpram which appears to be floating because of some clear LEGO pieces on the base. I did make a few mistakes while building this Brickhead and had to go back and fix them. The directions were easy to follow I just wasn’t paying close attention. Baby Yoda doesn’t have have to stay in the hoverpram. He can be removed and stand alone. 

The Results

The Mandalorian and The Child Brickheadz are really detailed and fun. I love Baby Yoda’s ears and how oversized they are. The hoverpram is spot on from the show. LEGO really went above and beyond with these two. Both Brickheadz measure 3” tall (8cm). Brickheadz are great because they don’t take up a lot of room and they make good displays pieces. 

Where Can I Get This Set?

We bought our The Mandalorian and The Child Brickheadz set at Legoland in Florida but if you are unable to make it out there to get it you can order this set for pre-order at Amazon, LEGO, or any other participating retailer.

10 Brilliant

I don’t really have any complaints about them. The detailing is great. Baby Yoda is adorable. The price is only $19.99 making it one of the cheapest ways to get Baby Yoda in LEGO form. The only thing I would change is the color of the silver piece that makes up the Mandalorian’s blaster rifle. I would either make it gray like the end piece or make the end piece silver. In my opinion, they should match. But honestly other than that I have no complaints about this set. We were even able to build these with our kids which made it a fun family activity.
