LEGO has been gradually unveiling The LEGO Movie sets at their website in a pretty creative way. All the sets are pictures, but with a red cloth over them. As we are getting closer to the official release, LEGO literally unveils one set at a time by taking off the red cloth. Today we will look at The LEGO Movie sets; both those that have already been revealed on LEGO’s website, and those that are still under wraps (thanks to the updated Brickset database we can take a peek). So let’s see what we got! 🙂
➡ #70800 THE LEGO MOVIE – ESCAPE GLIDER: A smaller, Western-themed set with two robot badguys (Robo Sheriff and Robo Deputy), a horse, and Emmet with a glider. Notice the mustache of one of the robots – which is a new piece – and the new color chicken on top of the weather-vane (I assume it suppose to be a rooster this time).
➡ #70801 THE LEGO MOVIE – MELTING ROOM: Another small set. Emmet doesn’t seem to be happy about whatever is happening here, and looks like Wyldstyle is in the middle of rescuing him from one of the robots. Notice Wyldstyle’s hood! Very sweet!
➡ #70802 THE LEGO MOVIE – POLICE PURSUIT: A medium-ish set where Emmet is in trouble again; this time with the police (Bad Cop) and two police alligators! The police vehicle reminds me of the ones in the now retired LEGO Space Police III sets.
➡ #70803 THE LEGO MOVIE – CLOUD CUCKOO PALACE: Revel with Unikitty in Cloud Cuckoo Land, the happiest, most positive and creative place in the universe! Join Emmet, Wyldstyle and all the master builders in this multi-colored playful paradise where the sun is always shining and a cute snail glides between the bright flowers. But beware! Unbeknown to Emmet, there’s a tracking device on his leg and Lord Business’ Executron has trailed him to the palace and is ready to handcuff him. Shoot flowers from the flower catapult to fend him off and help Emmet and Wyldstyle make a getaway! Includes 3 minifigures and accessories: Emmet, Wyldstyle and Executron, and 2 figures: Unikitty and a snail.
➡ #70804 THE LEGO MOVIE – ICE MACHINE: Another medium-size set with an ice-cream truck that transforms into a mech. I really like the look of this one. Shooting ice-cream? Yeah, bring it on! The three minifigures included are an ice-cream guy, ice-cream girl and a jogger.
➡ #70805 THE LEGO MOVIE – WASTE CRUSHER: What a great set! Who would not want a transforming garbage-truck with a giant mouth and big teeth? Minifigs included are a garbage-truck driver, a garbage collector, and a chef.
➡ #70806 THE LEGO MOVIE – CASTLE CAVALRY: Okay, so this is some kind of a small castle outpost that transforms into a viper… very strange indeed! Minifigs included are two crown-knights and a jogger. Also notice that this is another set where a black box-shaped robot is chasing some innocent citizen.
➡ #70807 THE LEGO MOVIE – METALBEARD’S DUEL: Arrr, me hearties! MetalBeard lost his body parts in a previous battle with Lord Business, but has rebuilt himself from old ship scraps to become more powerful than ever. Now, the giant Micro Manager is challenging him. Grab the pirate sword from the holster on his back and fire the cannons on his left arm. Protect his prized parrot and the treasure-chest containing his body parts, and act fast before the Micro Manager fires missiles and grabs the construction foreman with its claws. Includes 3 minifigures: Robo Skeleton, Robo SWAT, and Frank the Foreman.
➡ #70808 THE LEGO MOVIE – SUPER CYCLE CHASE: No time to waste! Use your Master Builder skills to help Wyldstyle assemble a two-seater, flaming-fast dragster from the materials she collects. Help Emmet to escape from the Robo SWATs. Rev up the engine to jump over the spike strip road block and speed away. Dodge the Robo Police guns and their 4×4 SWAT car’s flick missiles and deadly dynamite. Includes 5 minifigures with assorted weapons and accessories: Emmet, Wyldstyle and 3 Robo SWATs.
➡ #70809 THE LEGO MOVIE – LORD BUSINESS’ EVIL LAIR: Bwahahahaha! Welcome to Lord Business’ Evil Lair! Record his broadcasts in the TV studio and plot how to control the world from the office. Lever open the large door and unleash the Kragle. Trap the Master Builders in the think-tank to extract their creativity. Dodge the trapdoor to avoid being sent spiraling into infinity then pull the plug on the battery and shut down the think tank before Lord Business carries out his evil plan! Includes 6 minifigures with assorted accessories: Emmet, Vitruvius, Ma Cop, Pa Cop, Lord Business and wrestler/Master Builder, El Macho, and BiznisKitty figure.
➡ #70811 THE LEGO MOVIE – PLUMBER VAN: Another vehicle that transforms into a mech – this time a plumber van – chasing after a black box robot, who is chasing after a citizen.
➡ #70812 THE LEGO MOVIE – WESTERN PLANE: There is so much happening here we really have to see the movie to make sense of all of it (or at least get the official written description). Looks interesting for sure!
➡ #70813 THE LEGO MOVIE – FIRE HELICOPTER: A fire helicopter that transforms into a mech! What more could we ask for? I really like the look of these transforming vehicles!
Then there are of course also The LEGO Movie collectible minifigs, but we have talked about them already (see: LEGO Collectible Minifigs Series 12 Details). So what do you think? How do you like The LEGO Movie sets so far? They kind of remind me of an earlier LEGO theme that was also quite crazy called LEGO Time Cruisers. Yes? No? Are you looking forward to The LEGO Movie and the upcoming sets and minifigures? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below. I’m curious to hear your thoughts! 😉
