I guess this is somehow expected. Like its predecessor, The LEGO Movie 2 is getting tons of attention from The LEGO Group, with a good number of tie-in sets slated for next year, some of which were already listed by Amazon France. Now LEGO news authority in Germany, Promobricks, have recently received their latest copy of this year’s LEGO Christmas Catalog and from the looks of it, we will be receiving a new wave of LEGO Collectible Minifigures just in time with the film’s release in February. If you recall in 2014, LEGO has also released a similar CMF line in celebration of the first LEGO Movie. With the Harry Potter and Wizarding World CMF hype starting to wind down, LEGO is now building on the momentum by teasing on the arrival of The LEGO Movie 2 Collectible Minifigures (71023) by February 2019.
This particular page from the LEGO Christmas Catalogue hints on the arrival of a new Collectible Minifigures series, scheduled for February. It is reasonable to assume that this whole new CMF line will be dedicated to The LEGO Movie sequel since all eyes will be on this next big, brick-inspired animation film. We can also see another hint from LEGO set portal Price Vortex where the site listed The LEGO Movie 2 Collectible Minifigures (71023).
If ever this rumor is confirmed by LEGO themselves, then we can assume that this will be a great CMF line to collect. The introduction of our TLM characters’ new designs following the events of the infamous post-Taco Tuesday, were received quite positively by LEGO fans. The minifigure characters that we see from the film’s trailer so far show a rather tough and Mad-Max style of design, so we can somehow expect that several of the character in this rumored CMF line will also sport a similar look. It will also be great to see the new Wasteland Batman minifigure included in this series.
Now that we’re counting the days before the New York Comic Con kicks in, let’s wait and see if LEGO has something in-store for us. The LEGO Movie 2 is scheduled to hit theaters in the US on February 8, 2019.

Argos shop online shows the full range which includes main characters from Wizard of Oz, a man wearing a Giraffe suit. There are a total of 20 figs in the set. Again, LEGO exceeds the 16 figs that their display cases hold. Encouraging collectors to go to third-party suppliers instead of LEGO.
Now that you mentioned it, it just dawned on me that MAYBE it is the Wizard of Oz characters that are the chase minifigs in this set. I just hope that LEGO will not be so cruel to only throw in 1 set of per box, just like they did with CMF Series 18 Classic Policeman. 🙁 Or I might be wrong, just speculating though.
