The sequel to the highly successful The Incredibles animated Pixar film is coming to theatres this summer (June 15th). Incredibles 2 resumes where the first film ends, with the introduction of the villain the Underminer. Helen, as Elastigirl, continues to fight crime and campaign for the return of “supers”; while Bob, a.k.a. Mr. Incredible, stays at home caring for their children Violet, Dash, and Jack-Jack. But then of course stuff happens as nothing is ever normal with this family. Incredibles 2 is written and directed by Brad Bird, who also wrote and directed the first film, so I expect the sequel to be just as action-packed and enjoyable. 🙂
To accompany the film, we also get three LEGO Incredibles sets under the LEGO Juniors line, as well as a LEGO BrickHeadz set with Mr. Incredible and Frozone. Below are the details about all four sets, and I also included the movie trailer for your reference. Please note that all of the sets are already available at various LEGO retailers and at the Online LEGO Shop.

It is interesting that LEGO choose to release all of the Incredibles 2 sets under the LEGO Juniors line. This means that the sets are super easy to build even for younger kids (LEGO Juniors is recommended for ages 4-5). While all the pieces are regular LEGO elements, vehicles and buildings include what LEGO calls Quick Start elements – larger pieces that replace more complex assemblies.
Although the sets may not be interesting to older LEGO fans because of the juniorized building experience, LEGO Juniors sets do have one very appealing feature; all the decorated pieces you see in the sets are printed instead of stickered. Particularly nice are the “Wanted” poster, car hood, bank vault door, and soda can top in the #10760 LEGO Juniors Underminer Bank Heist set, and the various interior decoration pieces in the #10761 LEGO Juniors The Great Home Escape.
LEGO Juniors characters are standard minifigures, so if you would like to add the Incredibles heroes and villains to your collection, here is your chance. Between the three sets we get Mrs. Incredible (in regular form and Elastigirl form with long bendy arms), Mr. Incredible, Violet, Dash, an adorable Jack-Jack baby figure, the Underminer, Brick, and Screenslaver.
Besides the LEGO Incredibles 2 building sets, there is also going to be video game coming in June to PC, Playstation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. The new LEGO The Incredibles game will cover both the original and sequel with action packed levels full of fun and adventure. The teaser trailer below gives you a taste of the game, which is already available for pre-order on Amazon: LEGO INCDREDIBLES GAME ON AMAZON
