Did you want more football-themed Brickheadz? LEGO definitely thinks so with 40541 Manchester United Go Brick Me, which has just been spotted on the Singapore LEGO website.
The Manchester United-themed Go Brick Me Brickheadz set is a customisable licensed Brickheadz set that allows you to build your very own Manchester United player, or yourself in a Red Devils kit.
There isn’t any official pricing, or product pages outside of the Singapore site, but I expect it to cost the same as the Barcelona version – US$19.99 / AU$29.99 / £17.99. There is also no release date yet, but this post will be updated when more information comes to light.
It’s similar to 40542 FC Barcelona Go Brick Me, which was unveiled at LEGO CON 2022, and is obviously targeted at fans of English football club Manchester United, and will be a great companion piece to 10272 Old Trafford.
Like the Barcelona Go Brick Me set, you can choose from 3 different skin tones, 4 different hair colours and many different hairstyles, including spikes, ponytails, a mohawk or shaved.
The jersey features the club’s iconic crest as a printed tile on the front (nice), while there are also 2 sticker sheets so fans can add their favourite number on the back.
It’s an interesting set for sure, and I’m sure LEGO and Manchester United are banking of their legions of fans picking this set up to either re-create their favourite players in Brickheadz form, or build versions of themselves.
I’m a Manchester United fan… so I’ll probably pick this up as a basket-filler, but it’s not something I’ll rush out to get.
As a parts pack, this is also neat for all you 12 fans of Brickheadz, but like with the Barcelona set… I can’t imagine why LEGO wouldn’t just produce an EPL, or La Liga version with different printed tiles/jersey colours for a whole bunch of clubs instead of having individual club-based sets.
With the appearance of this Manchester United Brickheadz, I think it’s also safe to assume that we can expect to see a Real Madrid Go Brick Me Brickheadz set to accompany 10299 Real Madrid Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.
