Say you’ll be square: Spice Girls brought to life as Lego BrickHeadz

Published on: 11th February 2022

In a world first, the Spice Girls have become the first actual people to be immortalized in the Lego BrickHeadz style.

Five of the most recognised figures in showbiz history have burst on to the stage in Lego brick form for the first time ever, as the Lego Group unveils the Lego BrickHeadz Spice Girls Tribute set.

In celebration of new Lego set, world-renowned photographer Rankin has brought the brick band to life, recreating images originally shot in Rankin’s studio that made the girls so recognisable around the world, this time featuring the Lego BrickHeadz quintet.

The new Lego Brickheadz set comes with mini versions of each Spice Girl, equipped with microphones and stands. 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 clothing, from new leopard print Lego bricks for Mel B’s eye-catching look, along with Melanie C’s tracksuit and Emma’s famous baby pink dress, to Victoria in her trademark black dress.

The set would not be complete without Geri’s Union Jack dress. Lego designers have carefully recreated the famous dress, which became a lasting symbol of Cool Britannia and made headlines across the world following the performance of ‘Who Do You Think You Are’ at the Brit Awards 25 Years ago.

Talking about how he brought the band to Lego life, Lego designer Daniel Squirrell commented: “There are few bands that defined pop culture in the same way the Spice Girls did back in the 1990s, and it’s been such fun bringing the band to life in our BrickHeadz style. This is the first time we have created a music band in BrickHeadz form and what we really, really wanted was to capture the essence and nostalgia of the Spice Girls, through their iconic looks. I am delighted with the set and I hope the fans are too.”

The set is available from 1st March 2022. Spice Girls fans can also get their hands on a signed set by entering a sweepstake on Lego VIP – for more details visit www.lego.com/VIP.

Spice Girls fans who wannabe amongst the first to get their hands on the new Lego BrickHeadz can spice up their lives at the Lego BrickHeadz Spice Girls Celebration Weekend in London. Taking place at the Lego Store Leicester Square on 5th and 6th March, fans will get the chance to star on their own magazine front cover, meet the Lego Spice Girls BrickHeadz in their own individual worlds and dance along to some of the Spice Girls much-loved hits.
