We previously reported yesterday that a minifigure pod was spotted that is eventually tied-in with The LEGO Movie 2 film. The LEGO Movie 2 Emmet’s Pod (853874) features Emmet housed in a lenticular pod similar to those that were released from the LEGO Ninjago Movie, LEGO Star Wars, and LEGO Friends themes. As of its posting from yesterday, we only have an image of its blister packaging with its actual contents yet to be seen. However, thanks to several images shared by Promobricks, we now have an idea of how this newest pod looks like both inside and out.
Originally shared by a Promobricks reader, we now have a closer look at the LEGO Movie 2 Emmet’s Pod (853874). It’s kind of interesting to see how this particular pod differs from its predecessors. Coming in at 27 pieces, there are no actual minifigure accessories included with this pod. However, the clever use of very minimal LEGO pieces to recreate a micro-build of a crane makes up for this lack of minifig accessories.
If you look closely at the pod’s building instructions, you’ll notice that the crane can be dismantled, and its parts neatly arranged inside the pod. At first, I thought the pieces can just be removed from each other and just placed inside the pod with no particular order. However, the pod’s design exemplifies the thoughtful planning of its LEGO designers no matter how small it may seem. Like any other Emmet minifigure distributed generously across other LEGO Movie 2 sets, Emmet’s Pod (853874) comes with dual-sided minifigure head printing.
Lastly, Promobricks also reports that we may have to wait a little longer – by February to be exact – before we can grab this pod on LEGO Store shelves. As it turned out, the LEGO certified store in Hong Kong has accidentally released the pod earlier than expected, so they were immediately pulled out from the shelves eventually. So it was kind of fortunate for this Promobricks reader to somehow get his/her copy of the LEGO Movie 2 Emmet’s Pod (853874), and to have its images shared to the rest of the LEGO fan community.
