As we get closer to the release of The LEGO® Movie 2 , the LEGO Group has released details of new sets, as well as a new trailer on their Facebook page, with further details coming out via the Brothers Brick, and the LEGO Ambassador Network:.
There is something for everyone in this selection: minidolls and minifigures; juniors and older; Duplo and Juniors. Included amongst these are new classic spacemen in blue, yellow and pink as well as some essential starter sets for buildling classic style spaceships (Printed classic space logos on 2×4 sloped bricks’; 4×3 transparent yellow slopes), and some brick built and highlights from the Systar System.
The building style ranges from simple Duplo Constructions, through to a post apocalyptic wasteland, via space and a psychedelic shape changing character in the form of Queen Watevra Wanabi. I have heard rumours of a new colour coming to the palette next year… and I see the stripe on the side of the bus looks like it could be Salmon/Vibrant Coral. To say nothing of at least another three Unikitty variations for the collectors. Certainly, there is something for everyone, but if you want to hold on to your wallet, you might need to accept that not everything is for you!
All sets listed are slated for release on December 26th. The LEGO Movie 2 is due for release on February 6 in most of the world. Warner brother via IMDB lists the Australian release date as 28th March. Delayed Again.
Yesterday, a collection of ‘Hero Shots’ of the main characters were released on twitter
These go me a just a bit excited: follow on after the break for the trailer and set details.
Here is the trailer:

Too Many Choices!
There is certainly something for everyone here. And these are on top of those sets revealed at San Diego Commic-con this year.I am especially excited for Benny’s Space Squad, as well as Benny and Emmet’s workshop, for the reboot of Classic Space Elements, and I am also fond of the Pop up Party bus: those windscreens could make for some very interesting Trains. The classic town style of Lucy and Emmet’s dream house is also appealing, and makes ten year old me all excited. And the post apocalyptic vehicles ….and…. and….
