Mark a milestone with the fan-selected 150th BrickHeadz with the 40539 Ahsoka Tano in LEGO BrickHeadz style kit.
As part of a LEGO Ideas fan vote, fans were given a choice of characters themes that should appear on the 150th BrickHeadz set. The choices were Star Wars, Minecraft, Jaws, or Lilo & Stitch.
Star Wars won.
While many thought the character Jar-Jar would be the beloved character chosen, Lego decided Ahsoka Tano, a female Jedi Padawan, would be the one.

The first thing you will notice is the golden brick labeled #150 in the bottom right corner of the box. This is in celebration of the 150th LEGO BrickHeadz set and is the only marking that notes the special milestone in the set.
The side of the box shows a picture of the original character Ahsoka Tano as she appears on The Clone Wars, 7th season of the animated series.
The LEGO BrickHeadz kit brings this single character to life in a brick and tile build.
Open the box to discover 164 pieces presented in 4 small, sealed individual clear bags.
The Lego bags are not numbered. There is also a base plate included in the box as well as an instruction booklet.
The 37-page instruction booklet walks you through the 40-step build process.
Anyone who has ever built even one LEGO BrickHeadz set knows that they start with a pink brick that sits inside the head to represent the brain and a red brick section for the gut.
This kit is no exception.
The remaining build for the 40539 Ahsoka Tano set differs quite a bit from other BrickHeadz sets.
There are no stickers included. All the intricate design is done through building different colored pieces that are cleverly constructed rather than adding stickers or even pre-printed designs.
While the arrangement of tiles and plates to form the headpiece is fairly simple, it is so much better than relying on printed pieces or stickers.
The accurate Star Wars Clone Wars shape of the pronounced belt buckle looks great too. Piece together her dark blue outfit with distinct gray brick accents that make up the belt buckle.
The only decorated pieces are the two 1×4 tiles in orange with white markings that make up her face with her unique facial design printed in white.
Her eyes are the standard BrickHeadz eyes design using 1×1 round tiles.
Another detail that gives this figure positive reviews is the two blue lightsabers. One is positioned in her hand to face forward and one backward in the other hand.
The headpiece is what really makes this BrickHeadz unique. The curves are created using LEGO pieces that are precisely placed in alternating blue and white colors.
While some may find the blue a bit too bright compared to the original, others feel as though it’s the contrasting blue and white that make this BrickHeadz character stand out.
What makes this set special is that it is the 150th BrickHeadz, and the theme was fan chosen. However, there are no markings to indicate that it is #150 anywhere, not even on the base.
LEGO Minifigures & Characters
As with the BrickHeadz series, there are no LEGO Minifigures included in this set. BrickHeadz is a type of minifigure in and of themselves.
If you have been living under a Star Wars bubble, then you might not know who Ashoka Tano is. Ahsoka was the Padawan of Anakin Skywalker and a noble fighter during the Clone Wars.
To make the character Brickheadz authentic, her face needed to represent her head montrals, which are elaborate montrals, sensory organs sprouted from the heads of Togruta, in the original character.
It creatively combines blue and white pieces to form the Togruta head tails that Ahsoka Tano is known for.
Turning a curvaceous female character into a squared BrickHeadz using only bricks with tiles was challenging in and of itself.
But, LEGO did a magnificent job.
Collectible Display vs Playability
As with all the BrickHeadz line, this one is more fitting to collect, build, and put on display rather than for daily play.
Although, what makes this set special is the fact that it is the 150th fan-chosen BrickHeadz series, but no special markings are included to indicate this.
It is still collectible for display.
More Brick For Your Buck
For the initial $9.99 minimal price that LEGO originally sold this set for, it’s a great value for the building experience as well as collectible factor.
The bottom line price amounts to about six cents per brick and a less than 20-minute build time to add this BrickHeadz character to your collection.
Potential Lego Investment Value
For those parting this out, you can expect somewhere around $25 value, but that will definitely increase once it retires.
As with any LEGO set, the BrickHeadz tends to have an after-market value that increases. It appears to be an Lego Store exclusive out of the gate, but that is always subject to change.
This set can fetch you 100% ROI if it sells for approximately $28 at a buy cost of $9.99 once it retires. One thing to note that this being the 150 edition of Brickheadz may bring some limited supply with high demand.
But who knows other than LEGO?
Keep in mind, that these estimates change depending on collectors’ demands.
The 150th model is a very good choice that is sure to receive positive reviews. The finished model appeals to a wide audience, not just Star Wars fans.
Details like the spectacular montrals and dual light sabers make this BrickHeadz unique.
But, if you are really into the Star Wars franchise, then this is a definite must-have for your collection.
