Recommendation: meh 4.5 / 5 from 4 reviews

I enjoyed the build and subject. My first mosaic type. But think it's too expensive for the number of pieces, and difficulty. When I ordered I assumed that the stand part of the assembly was why the price was so high, thinking that it had special hardware. That isn't it in this case. I would probably continue buying all of this new series if were less expensive. I would be more comfortable if they were closer to the price of the “Brickheadz" seeing how they are similar in piece count .

Recommendation: meh 4 / 5 by Jay

Overall, a fun little release from LEGO that won't break the bank, but will serve you well if you want to scratch that building itch, and are the kind of person to proudly display your LEGO collection to people.

The Brothers Brick

Recommendation: yes by Chris Doyle

I started out pretty iffy on these sets. After building them and looking though the parts, however, I can say I'm now a fan. The builds are quick, but fun. The finished models are great.

Recommendation: yes by Adam White

I've always admired the designs Chris used to share on social media. So I'm delighted they are now available as an official LEGO product. They offer a unique build experience as you are layering elements instead of building 3D structures or vehicles. The result is a fun looking display piece, that would look great hanging on the wall or sitting on a desk.

Recommendation: meh by Huw

Brick Sketches open up a whole new way to display LEGO, hanging on the wall, and they look great in my office at Brickset Towers. Now we know the price, I think $20 is a little on the high side for what they are. Although not marketed as 18+ adult sets they are likely to be of interest mainly to AFOLs given that price point and lack of playability.
