We’re Off To See The Wizard - BrickHeadz
Since 1939, The Wizard of Oz has captured the hearts and imaginations of viewers worldwide. Nearly eighty years later, this classic film remains one of most beloved movies of all time by every generation. In this partner build from Kendall Brown (@headzsets) and Scott Moore (@jackmojo1) we strove not only to create five incredibly detailed BrickHeadz models of the characters, but also portray their journey through the wonderful land of Oz. So, follow the yellow brick road with us!
Here are the details:
- The model is constructed of 1011 bricks featuring the film's five heroic companions: The Scarecrow, the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion, Dorothy, and her little dog Toto too. The characters are displayed in order of their film appearance.
- Each character stands upon their own modular yellow brick road base with a custom gold-scripted nameplate. This allows them to be displayed individually, or as a set in any order you like.
- Our characters' journey begins with a micro-built Munchkinland featuring mini-houses and lollipops at the start of the yellow brick road. Dorothy’s house, is resting upon the ruby slipper-less feet of the Wicked Witch of the East.
- Dorothy is clicking the heels of her ruby slippers while Toto sits loyally at her side. As an added surprise, Dorothy's face plate is removable to reveal that she is filled with a rainbow.
- The Scarecrow carries a custom “Doctor of Thinkology” diploma awarded to him by the Wizard. In a playful nod to the film, his faceplate can also be removed allowing you to fill his head with straw or the brain he so desperately desired.
- The Tin Man carries his axe and oil can and features a heart tile on his chest. You’ll find another heart hiding within his removable front plate.
- The Cowardly Lion features a fantastic build of his luxurious mane, complete with a red bow. He also has a posable tail and the Wizard’s shining medal of courage is pinned upon his chest.
- Where our characters' journey ends we find a micro-built Emerald City. The city is constructed from transparent green pillars among a field of poppies. As a final detail, the Wizard’s hot air balloon floats off into the sky.
Thanks for looking, supporting, and sharing!
