I’ll tell you what I want, what I really, really want – an official LEGO Spice Girls set!
Yes, that is totally happening because thanks to the LEGO Instructions site, we have our very first look at 40548 Spice Girls Tribute, which sees the legendary cultural icons that are the Spice Girls get the Brickheadz treatment.
Update: These have now officially been revealed online, and have a release date of 1 March 2022 on LEGO.com!
See below for regional pricing and links:
- 40548 Spice Head Tribute [US] – US$49.99
- 40548 Spice Head Tribute [AUS] – AU$79.99
- 40548 Spice Head Tribute [UK] – £44.99
- 40548 Spice Head Tribute [EU] – €49.99

There aren’t any release dates yet, but as these instructions are loaded up, I would expect a March 2022 release as we’re almost mid-way through February.
I can’t express how good these look – you get a whopping FIVE Brickheadz in a set with Emma Bunton, Mel B, Mel C, Geri Halliwell and Victoria Beckham getting the Brickheadz treatment.
Update: The set was designed by Dan Squirrell
LEGO Brickheadz are having a bit of a renaissance in 2022, and from the tiny photo, these look terrific, and while some AFOLs might turn up their noses against the Spice Girls, I think there will be plenty more people who grew up bopping to the Spice Girls music that will be very excited about these sets.
This is likely also the first of many more pop culture sets, following LEGO’s partnership with Universal (the Spice Girls are signed under Universal Media Group), and I can absolutely see maybe minifigures, or more Brickheadz of other Pop/Music stars.
The Elvis Presley Art set also makes a lot more sense in this context.
Huge thanks to The Brick Fan for the tip off!
What do you think about the LEGO Spice Girls set? Will you be getting them, and would you like to see more pop culture music Brickheadz/sets?
