Lego Movie 2 – Sets I want

There’s a new Lego Movie on the way, aptly titled “The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part“.

The movie takes place 5 years after the first. The sister from the end of the first movie has grown a little and now has her own Lego collection, and seemingly they have been waging a war on Emmet’s world. It looks like it’s the invasion of Lego’s Friends range.

I’m not a massive fan of the Friends range. I feel like it was never really needed. Lego really just needed to include more female characters and “female-themed” sets in their regular series. It would have been good for both little boys and little girls to have this in the one range rather than creating a separate product line whose figs are incongruent with the original minifigs that have been around for more than 40 years. But I digress…

From the trailer there’s a lot to love about “The LEGO Movie 2”. It looks like the same level of humour that made the first so awesome is back for another round. And Lego is backing the movie up with some very nice sets. Of which I see four I want to procure.


Set 70831 – Emmet’s Dream House / Rescue Rocket! – 706 pieces – AUD$89.99

A cool classic-looking house set, Emmet’s Dream House is very cute and it’s 2-in-1 “Rescue Rocket!” alternate is no doubt a great storyline feature. The sleeping Unikitty, Emmet, Wildstyle/Lucy, and Rex minifigs are a bonus. Having said that, it would be nice to see more variations in the Emmet figure, we’ve seen so many of him looking the same throughout all the Movie sets.

70826 – Rex’s Rex-treme Offroader! – 236 pieces – AUD$44.99

Not going to lie, the only reason I want this set is for the blue dinosaur figure. I’m going to get this one only for the blue dinosaur figure. I’ve been after a dinosaur figure for ages. But most of the Lego sets that contain any kind of dinosaur have been the licensed Jurassic World sets, and those sets come at too high a price just to get a dino. Of course, there are also the additional faces of Rex and Emmet that are a bonus.

70821 – Emmet and Benny’s ‘Fuild and Fix’ Workshop! – 117 pieces – AUD$29.99

Lego is evil with this set. They keep tugging at the heartstrings of Classic Space AFOLs everywhere. First it was Benny’s Spaceship, Spaceship Spaceship! from The Lego Movie, and now with this set. Set 70821 contains a tiny spaceship that is a miniaturised version of the LL-924 Lego Spacecruiser, quite possibly my favourite ever Lego set I have owned, but one that is long gone. So I will get this set, for the spaceship, and the cool little tools.

70841 – Benny’s Space Squad – 68 pieces – AUD$15.99

What’s not to love about this set? It is Lego Classic Space from top to toe. The only thing I may have seen as an improvement in this one… let Benny be pure, we have lots of broken warn out Benny. Would it have killed them to give us an alternative fresh Benny? Regardless, this set I think I’ll buy multiples. At $15.99 it’s cheaper per fig than if we had to buy them as collectable minifigs and I would like to have a few of these to play with. Can one ever have too many Classic Space minifigs? I also love they are called Kenny (yellow), Benny, Lenny (pink), and Jenny (white). I want them now!

All due to arrive December 26. Maybe I’ll just ask for gift cards for Christmas. You can see all of “The LEGO Movie 2” lego sets in the Lego Shop online.
