The Spice Girls immortalized in Lego Brickheadz in world premiere
Five of the most recognized figures in showbiz history have burst onto the stage in LEGO brick form for the very first time, as The LEGO Group unveils the BrickHeadz Spice Girls Tribute set.
This is a world first, as real people have never been immortalized in LEGO BrickHeadz style before.
To celebrate the new LEGO set, world-renowned photographer Rankin brought the brick band to life, recreating images originally shot in Rankin’s studio that made the girls so recognizable around the world, this time with the quintet LEGO BrickHeadz.
In 1996 Emma, Geri, Mel B, Melanie C and Victoria exploded onto the UK music scene before taking over the world with hits such as Wannabe, Two Become One, Viva Forever and Spice up Your Life. Now the band can be built out of LEGO bricks, giving fans the chance to add some People Power to their homes.
The new LEGO Brickheadz set comes with mini versions of each Spice Girl, complete with microphones and stands. For the first time, fans can experience that satisfying “click” when two bricks become one. Every detail that gave the girls their iconic style has been faithfully captured in brick, from hairstyles to clothes. Fans will find new leopard-print LEGO bricks for Mel B’s eye-catching look, as well as Melanie C’s tracksuit and Emma’s famous baby pink dress. While Victoria can be found in her trademark black dress.
Of course, the ensemble wouldn’t be complete without Geri’s Union Jack dress. LEGO designers have painstakingly recreated the famous dress, which has become an enduring symbol of Cool Britannia and made headlines around the world after ‘Who Do You Think You Are’ performed at the Brit Awards 25 years ago.
Speaking about how he brought the band to LEGO life, LEGO designer Daniel Squirrell commented, “There are few bands that have defined pop culture the way the Spice Girls have. in the 1990s, and it’s been so much fun bringing the band to life in our BrickHeadz style.
“This is our first time creating a musical group in the form of BrickHeadz and what we really, really wanted was to capture the essence and nostalgia of the Spice Girls, through their iconic looks. I’m delighted with the set and I hope the fans will be too.
