Dav Pilkey books have been the Kids Graphic Novels with the highest number of sold copies in 2021, with his Dog Man series being his biggest success that year. The latest book with this character, Mothering Heights, sold more than 1.2 million copies in the year of its launch.

Dog Man is read by hundred of thousands of adults and children around the world, and I think it deserves to have an official LEGO set featuring its main characters, Dog Man and Lil Petey. 

Loving both Dog Man and LEGO BrickHeadz, I went ahead and created a set including Dog Man and Lil Petey in its normal outfits as well as their superheroes personas. This is my first attempt at submitting a creation to LEGO IDEAS

The Set

The Set gives you the possibility of building 4 LEGO Brickheadz:

  • The original Dog Man
  • His side-kick/frenemy Li’l Petey
  • Both of them in their super-hero costume 

As the original and super-hero versions of the characters share several parts, this set is intended as a 4-in-2 LEGO Brickheadz. The legs and body of both versions are practically the same, and Li’l Petey’s head shares most of the same pieces in both forms, original and super-hero.

The colours of the skin of the characters is purposedly not reflecting the original comic characters as I tried to use more traditional Brickheadz colours in both cases. 

If LEGO would build Dog Man-based sets, I am sure those would be very successful among both children and adults as these graphic novels are having more sold copies than most other comic books, mangas and animes, and what better form to get started that in a LEGO Brickheadz?
