The LEGO Movie 2 sets video-reviews & more!

by admin on January 17, 2019

in LEGO Movie 1 & 2

The LEGO Movie 2 sets were released at the beginning of January, and The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part film is going to be in theatres soon! In addition, the largest of The LEGO Movie 2 sets just became available to LEGO VIP members yesterday (general release will be on February 1st). So, this is a good time to discuss all The LEGO Movie 2 sets that are available so far and select our favorites. 🙂

The first wave of sets related to The LEGO Movie 2 include nineteen regular sets, some small polybags, and one LEGO DUPLO set. Two of the smallest regular sets are the #70841 LEGO Movie 2 Benny’s Space Squad and the #70822 LEGO Movie 2 Unikitty’s Sweetest Friends EVER! Both sets are excellent value and already very popular due to the LEGO Classic Space minifigures and unique printed parts. Another small set is the #70823 LEGO Movie 2 Emmet’s Tricycle! This set may not be as interesting to adult LEGO fans, but it’s certainly fun for kids. The first two sets are only $9.99 each, and the last one is $14.99. I have heard from many LEGO fans that they are buying several of Benny’s Space Squad. It’s a great army-builder set for LEGO Classic Space fans!

There are eight sets in the $20-$30 price-range, including the #70836 LEGO Movie 2 Battle-Ready Batman and MetalBeard (great for MetalBeard and Batman fans!), the #70821 LEGO Movie 2 Emmet and Benny’s Build and Fix Workshop! (more LEGO Classic Space pieces!), the #70824 LEGO Movie 2 Introducing Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi (uhm… this is one wacky set…), the #70832 LEGO Movie 2 Emmet’s Builder Box!, the #70833 LEGO Movie 2 Lucy’s Builder Box! (both of these sets come in very handy storage suitcases), the #70826 LEGO Movie 2 Rex’s Rex-treme Offroader! (great set with a dark-blue dino!), and the #70827 LEGO Movie 2 Ultrakatty & Warrior Lucy! (another great set with an adorable and angry version of Unikitty). Also in this price-range is the #10895 LEGO DUPLO Emmet and Lucy’s Visitors from the DUPLO Planet with immensely cute versions of two of the main characters from the film.

In the $40-$70 price-range we get six more sets. The #70825 LEGO Movie 2 Queen Watevra’s Build Whatever Box! (lots of basic pieces in unique colors), the #70829 LEGO Movie 2 Emmet and Lucy’s Escape Buggy!, the #70820 LEGO Movie 2 Movie Maker set with a backdrop and props to make your own brickfilms, the #70834 LEGO Movie 2 MetalBear’s Heavy Metal Motor Trike! (great for steampunk fans!), the #70831 LEGO Movie 2 Emmet’s Dream House/Rescue Rocket! (turn Emmet’s house into a spaceship!), and the #70830 LEGO Movie 2 Sweet Mayhem’s Systar Starship! If you would like to see these sets in detail, check the video-reviews included in the player below by JANGBRiCKS.

The three largest sets in The LEGO Movie 2 collection are the #70828 LEGO Movie 2 Pop-Up Party Bus with unique design and colors (including a new color, similar to the long retired salmon color), the #70835 LEGO Movie 2 Rex’s Rexplorer (with more dark-blue dino’s and an unusual spaceship), and the massive #70840 LEGO Movie 2 Welcome to Apocalypseburg! (we talked about this set previously here). In the video-player below, I have included all The LEGO Movie 2-related reviews by JANGBRiCKS, so you can see the sets in more detail.

Besides the regular sets, there are also a number of small polybags for The LEGO Movie 2 that are (or will be) available from retailers or through various promotions. So far, six such polybags are known; #30340 LEGO Movie 2 Emmet’s Piece Offering, #30460 LEGO Movie 2 Rex’s Plantimal Ambush, #30527 LEGO Movie 2 Lucy vs. Alien Invader, #30528 LEGO Movie 2 Mini Master-Building MetalBears, #30529 LEGO Movie 2 Mini Master-Building Emmet, and #30620 LEGO Movie 2 Star-Stuck Emmet.

The LEGO Movie 2 sets are full of unique parts, interesting minifigures, and both classic and unusual designs. Even if a set doesn’t appeal to you right away, it’s worth checking out larger images, because there are lots of useful pieces, colors and accessories that you could use in your own creations. See the full selection at The LEGO Movie 2 section of the Online LEGO Shop.

I have mixed feelings about the Lego 2 movie sets. Sure the two bigger sets look fun but, for some reason it doesn’t grab me like the first one did. I did get the bennys space crew. In fact I might get a couple more too make a space colony.

I think we may need to wait until the movie comes out to fully grasp what the sets are about. They will probably get more appealing. Also, usually the nicer, larger sets come out in the second wave. I expect that we will get more sets in the summer. 🙂

We have several of the sets already. The kids like the metalbeard sets the most. I’m tempted to get the Sweet Mayhem sets because of the colors.

We like the Sweet Mayhem sets too. Both the bus and the space capsule are so unique. Sweet Mayhem has the most amazing hairpiece! Did you guys see that? It shimmers! 😀

Yeah, it’s such a unique piece! Sweet Mayhem is my favorite mini-doll! 😀

The most Manga fig since the Exo-Force theme…

Yeah, LOL! I love Exo-Force! 😀

The Benny’s Space Squad set is the best! I was surprised by how nostalgic I felt building it. It’s not just the Classic Space minifigs. It also has the small rower, spaceship and robot. They are built in the simple old Classic Space style. I was so happy! 😀

Yes! I loved building this set too! I don’t know what to think of the pink spaceman, I wish it was red to match the other the classic space colors, but it’s not a big deal. Building the vehicles and the robot was such a great experience. They brought back lots of fond memories!

The pink spaceman was a decisive point for me, that and the printed slope. I actually have quite a bunch of white, yellow and red classic spacemen from childhood and thriftshop finds, that new ones in themselves aren’t that interesting. I might be a bit too young for them, though, so I have a softer spot for Futuron and Blacktron…

I kinda like the Systar Starship and Party Bus, but I’m a little too low on both income and space to buy that many new sets, now. Maybe if I’d get a really good sale deal…

Usually the various LEGO movie sets do go on sale at some point, so you might very well be able to pick up your favorites at a discount. 🙂

Awww… yeah, that set is amazing! I already got two, and will probably pick up a few more. Can’t get enough Classic Space guys, rovers and spaceships! 😀

Oldtimer January 17, 2019 at 3:18 PM

I don’t know what to think of the other sets. There is one more with a spaceship that I plan to get. The rest is a little too wacky for my taste, but if others enjoy them I’m happy

Do you guys think Apocalypseburg will go on sale? I really want it, but it’s so expensive. Anything would help!

Reply

Håkan January 17, 2019 at 5:38 PM

It looks like a limited run, though. If that’d be the case, there’s a chance you might need to act quickly.

Reply

admin January 17, 2019 at 10:44 PM

I’m fairly certain it will be available at least until the end of the year. Of course, you never know with LEGO, but I don’t see why they would not let the set run for at least a year. 🙂

I guess I meant in production numbers. The smaller sets would be more likely to be produced in a larger surplus.

At least, that’s what I reckoned…

Reply

admin January 18, 2019 at 11:33 AM

Oh, yes, smaller sets are more widely available and produced in larger numbers. Usually large sets like Apocalypseburg are only available directly from LEGO. Toys’R’Us also carried big exclusives, but sadly, they are now gone…

The set should be available for a while, so some opportunity might come up. Perhaps Double VIP Points, or maybe some other attractive incentive. It’s hard to tell, as LEGO changed their strategy how they handle promotions. Also, keep an eye on Amazon. They are usually more aggressive with sales. 😉

I like Emmet’s House and Angry Kitty. I think most of the sets look good. The only ones that are wacky even for me are those Queen Watevra sets. But hey, someone may like them. 😀

Reply

Håkan January 18, 2019 at 6:51 PM

Many of the sets in the theme reference other themes more or less obviously. That Whatevra set is likely a reference to the current Classic theme. The Builder Boxes and the Build & Fix Workshop reference Junior themes, and the Dream House the houses in Creator. Altogether, the theme functions somewhat like an introduction that references most other major themes except for external licenses and Technic.

It’s interesting that neither the first LEGO Movie or this second one seem to feature Technic. Technic is LEGO’s own theme and distinct building system, so I’m not sure why they left it out. Maybe it’s not as nostalgic as the other older themes, but it’s certainly prominent and has been around for a long time.

Reply

Håkan January 18, 2019 at 9:45 PM

It’s one year older than the minifig, even, but I heard that it didn’t perform that well in North America.

Reply

admin January 20, 2019 at 11:05 PM

As far as I can tell, Technic is pretty popular here. Especially with teens and mechanically inclined adults. I know there is big discussion every year about the new Technic sets amongst LEGO fans, and there is always a lot of anticipation about upcoming sets.
