At the recent San Diego Comic Con it was announced that there will be a third wave of The LEGO Movie sets coming out in January 2015. There was one set on display; the #70817 LEGO Movie Batman & Super Angry Kitty Attack; a small $10 set including Batman, Angry Kitty, a Robo-Skeleton, and a Micro-Manager – as you can see below (photo from Brickset.com). Unikitty fans are going to be very happy with having another variation of their favorite feisty little character. 🙂
There is also a possibility of another set including Unikitty, as reported by Allan from TheBrickfan.com. Although this is still just a speculation, this new set might be the LEGO Master Builder Submarine, which was built by several of the main characters from The LEGO Movie – including Vitruvius, Benny, Batman, Wyldstyle, Unikitty and Emmet – while they were being chased by Bad Cop. The submarine is a mash-up of their different styles of building and it looks totally crazy and awesome.
I have heard from a lot of LEGO fans who would be very happy with the submarine made into a LEGO set. I would too, although I’m really not sure if it will actually happen. The original submarine created in LEGO Digital Designer for the movie is quite large and part-dense, so it is going to have to be an expensive set. It also doesn’t seem to have a whole lot of play-features. As you can see from The LEGO Movie clip below, it was basically built hastily, then dove into the water. There is a little bit of the interior showing with the double-decker couch, but that’s about it.
Then, another possibility LEGO fans talk about is a LEGO Batman Batwing. This is also a quite large vehicle in the movie, but I could see it being made into a LEGO set. There is lots of swoosh-ability with the Batwing that would make both kids and adults happy. Below is a wonderful and movie-accurate version of the Batwing, painstakingly built by LEGO fan Stefan Edlinger (Brickmasta) using clips from The LEGO Movie as reference. Stefan also made full PDF instruction available for sale on his website, in case you want to build your own. See here: LEGO Batwing Instructions PDF
At this point this is all that’s known about The LEGO Movie sets scheduled for the beginning of 2015. How many sets will be released in total is not known as of yet, but I’m sure we will hear more before the end of the year. In the meantime you can check out the current selection of The LEGO Movie sets at the Online LEGO Shop.
So what do you think? Are you looking forward to another wave of The LEGO Movie sets? Do you feel that the LEGO Submarine or the LEGO Batwing is a possibility? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below! Would love to hear your opinion on this! 😉

Thx for Sharing 🙂
I definitely want the Batman set, for Batman and Angry Kitty. I doubt LEGO will do the sub, but a smaller Batwing would be great! Also, great job on the Batwing, Brickmasta! 🙂
BTW, I’m going on vacation today! 🙂 Only problem is no internet there so I may not be around for a while. Ah, well. 😉
Have fun on your vacation! It is nice to get away from the Internet once in a while. 🙂
The Brick Fan has rumored set names:
I’m kind of curious to see what the Double Decker Couch set will include.
Yes, I saw that. One thing we do know is that Unikitty has a tearful expression in an upcoming set. It makes sense her to be with the double decker couch as it was in that scene. I know a lot of people asked for a double decker couch in a small set as currently it only apperears in the most expensive one. So perhaps this will be just a small set with the couch, Emmet, and Unikitty.
I was assuming that there’d be an Octan Truck (where Batman hits the button with his weapon on his first try 😉 )
LOL! That would actually make a nice set! 😛
I hope that the batwing becomes a set I would buy it even if it was $100 but I think if it was more than $100 I would not buy it because I think that would be over priced
That depends on the size and scale of the set. If it were movie scale (like Brickmasta’s), then $100 sounds about right. But my guess is that a set version would be smaller, so $100 is rather high itself. 😉
It seems like there are no large sets in this wave, isn’t it? Or at least they haven’t been revealed as of yet. 😕
Get the instructions at my blog and build it way cheaper 🙂
That is a submarine? It’s ridiculous!
Well, it’s meant to be. (Both in form and function, if you watch the film.)
I hope I actually get to the store this wave! I haven’t got any of the other sets yet, so I will get one this time. =P
As awesome as THE LEGO MOVIE is I personally believe that its predecessor CLUTCH POWERS is just as awesome in its own way and in some case has more replay power (that’s where a movie is such that a child can watch it again and again without ever getting tired of watching the same film) then the LEGO MOVIE. Both are great but I’d love to see a follow-up to the CLUTCH POWERS movie as well as the already planned sequel to THE LEGO MOVIE. I also think that a sequel for CLUTCH POWERS is far more realistic then for the LEGO MOVIE. I don’t want to spoil it for anyone who has not yet seen the LEGO MOVIE but its storyline is such that its not really something you can do a sequel for. You could do another sop motion LEGO film (versus the animated CLUTCH POWERS film) but it would not be a sequel to the first LEGO MOVIE so much as another LEGO story in that universe.
I forgot to note (before hitting save) that my entire reason for mentioning CLUTCH POWERS is that its set pieces can be re-created with existing blocks and does not require any new purchases; new sets that did not exist without the movie.
That’s a good point. The only thing though about this is LEGO is a business. They do want to please their fans, but they also have to make decisions that will keep them alive as a business. Especially in this economy where people can afford less and less and prices on everything are going up (including from suppliers, vendors and partners LEGO uses), they do have to create product lines, movies, etc. that are profitable. They do have to sell something, and people tend to be excited about and buy new sets. So yeah, there has to be a balance. But bringing back CLUTCH POWERS in some shape or form would be nice. Perhaps reference to it will be added to The LEGO Movie sequel. 🙂
Wow Dude! gotta show this to my siblings! =D
Wow…..that submarine would be awesome as a set!
Am I the only me who wants a cloud cuckoo land master builder conference arena… Haha
That would be wonderful! I remember seeing a picture from someone who actually made it. 🙂
