Very great details and good experience. I wish both hands of the cat are movable. The side decoration is a little boring. Overall is cute and worth the money.

Recommendation: meh by Rod

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.

Recommendation: meh by Adam White

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.

Recommendation: yes by Allen "Tormentalous" Tran

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.
