While most of The LEGO Movie 2 sets were released in January, The LEGO Movie 2 Collectible Minifigures didn’t become available until the beginning of February. The LEGO Movie 2 Collectible Minifigures series includes twenty characters. They are as follows: Emmet, Battle-Ready Lucy, Apocalypse Benny, Giraffe Guy, Crayon Girl, Sherry Scratchen-Post with Scarfield, Hula Lula, Watermelon Dude, Flashback Lucy, The Swamp Creature, Candy Rapper, Gone Golfin’ President Business, Apocalypseburg Abe, Vest Friend Rex, Kitty Pop, Dorothy Gale with Toto, Cowardly Lion, Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Unikitty. 🙂
As usual, all the characters come with one or more accessory elements, a collector’s leaflet, and a display baseplate. Some of the most useful accessories include Emmet’s headphone/hair combination and printed 1×2 tile, Apocalypse Benny’s toolbox with LEGO Classic Space logo, Crayon Girl’s cute drawing, Hula Lula’s 2×2 round tile with record print, Flashback Lucy’s record award, Watermelon Dude’s printed watermelon slice, Candy Rapper’s printed cassette tape, President Business’s golf club, and Kitty Pop’s guitar with new print.
The most notable feature of this series is that you can get an entire collection of Wizard of Oz characters; Dorothy with Toto, the Cowardly Lion, Scarecrow, and Tin Man. All four of them are beautifully designed minifigs with lots of printed details and nice accessories. I especially like Dorothy’s hairpiece. The watermelon costume, giraffe costume, and crayon costume are great too, and are nice additions to the previously released costumed minifigs.
The LEGO Movie 2 Collectible Minifigures should be available at LEGO retailers by now, and you can also order them online. However, remember that if you purchase them online, you can’t request specific minifigs. Even if you order more than one mystery bag, you may receive two or more identical figures instead of different ones. Of course, you can always trade them with other LEGO fans, which could be part of the fun. The new pod is available at The LEGO Movie 2 section of the Online LEGO Shop.
Another fun item related to The LEGO Movie 2 that was recently released and we haven’t talked about yet is the #853874 LEGO Movie 2 Emmet’s Construction Pod. This portable little orange pod features a cool lenticular image on the outside – view it from different angles to see either a picture of Emmet’s head or The LEGO Movie 2 logo. It contains an Emmet minifigure, construction site LEGO baseplate attached to the inside of the pod, a buildable excavator, and extra pieces to represent rubble. If you have been collecting the LEGO pods, this is a nice addition. You can also find this set at The LEGO Movie 2 section of the Online LEGO Shop.
There are also a bunch of accessory items you may consider to show your enthusiasm for The LEGO Movie 2. There is an Emmet Alarm Clock, Emmet Watch, Unikitty Watch, Lucy Plush (some of the other characters are also available at retailers), a wearable Lucy hair extension, and a notebook with Sweet Mayhem on the cover and two sticker sheets (I love LEGO notebooks!). They are also available at The LEGO Movie 2 section of the Online LEGO Shop.
