The cat is adorable and was easy to build! Just like someone commented here, I might have to add a few pieces on the hand to make it look more like a cat. Besides that, I recommend it! :)
If you collect the BrickHeadz, you will get these anyway. They are solid work and look good! For everyone else, these sets don't bring too much value.
If you're into bricks more than the subject matter, the Cat isn't much of a parts pack. Other than the single printed tile there weren't any exciting pieces which got my blood pumping. However, it's a nice enough model and I enjoyed putting it together.
As a fan, it's nice to see them continue into 2020, what's even more impressive is LEGO are still finding things to used for seasonal releases. Although they have only just started to focus on Chinese New Year, obviously to cater for their growing Chinese market, the Lucky Cat is a fun little set and a nice addition to the ever growing range.
Overall, the LEGO BrickHeadz Lucky Cat (40436) is my favorite out of this first wave of 2020 sets. The back of the instructions show some other Seasonal BrickHeadz sets that will be coming out soon including the Valentine's Bear (40379) also coming out in January and the Sheep (40380) coming in February, both of which we've already seen before. With Chinese New Year coming on January 25, the Lucky Cat makes a perfect gift for kids and adults alike. I'll definitely be getting a couple more when they become available in a few weeks.
I do like a good BrickHeadz particularly those, like this one, that push the boundaries of the design and introduce something new and interesting. As I say in conclusion to BrickHeadz reviews, It won't win over detractors of the theme but those that love the blocky characters will find a lot to like in this set.
