The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part is still a few months away from cinemas, but being a film based on an epic toy brand, and a much awaited sequel, means that it’s got a load of related merchandise coming in line with the premiere. Beyond the usual tie-in sets and collectible minifigures that we can expect from LEGO, Amazon has revealed our first LEGO Movie 2 inspired book that even comes with a free Emmet minifigure: The LEGO Movie 2 Keeping It Awesomer With Emmet.
Obviously, the book’s selling point will be the new minifigure iteration of Emmet as we see him again in the LEGO Movie 2 trailer. Based on this Amazon listing, Emmet seems to come with a pretty beat up garb (or it could be the clam shell cover, I’m not really sure), which is understandable considering after going through the apocalyptic events of Taco Tuesday.
A closer look at this new Emmet minifigure shows that he will also include a pair of goggles, and what looks like to be a plant piece from well, Planty.
Amazon already has Keeping it Awesomer with Emmet (which they call Emmet’s Guide to Being Awesome-r) listed on their platform. Here’s the book blurb:
Let Emmet teach you how to be AWESOMER with his guide to life!Includes an exclusive Emmet Minifigure. THE LEGO� MOVIE 2 – in cinemas February 2019! JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT IT COULDN’T GET AWESOMER… Remember when everything was awesome? Now get ready for even bigger, awesomer, and more action-packed adventures with Emmet and all his very best brick friends from THE LEGO� MOVIE! When we last saw Emmet, he was the most positive, caring, super-duper guy in Bricksburg. This time, Emmet’s eternal optimism and master-building abilities will be put to the ultimate test: The very existence of play is at stake! Can Unikitty and Lucy help him stay positive? Can Benny the spaceman finally get a new helmet? Will Batman work in other colours than black? Will Metal Beard build new multi-purpose legs? Why are you still reading all these questions? Just buy the book!
This LEGO Movie book (and its accompanying Emmet minifig and accessories) comes out on January 3 next year, with a retail price of $11.13 on Amazon. Pre-orders are now accepted in case you want this new version of Emmet .
