Summer seems to come early as LEGO finally lifted the veil on one of its second wave of LEGO Movie 2 sets at the London Toy Fair 2019. UK’s premiere toy fair has just kicked in, and LEGO is intent to make an impression. And what better way to do so through a set that represents the bold and daring character of the film’s newest brick hero. The LEGO Movie 2 The Rexcelsior! (70839) has just been revealed, and it boasts a pretty cool interior and plenty of play features befitting of a LEGO Movie 2 set.
The Rexcelsior! – Rex Dangervest’s space abode – made its first appearance in the LEGO Movie 2’s official trailer where Emmet gets to know more about Rex and variety of things that he does. When I first saw the Rexcelsior, I immediately had this feeling that this is a most likely candidate to become a LEGO set, if not a direct-to-consumer (D2C) one. Glad to see that LEGO had this in mind all along. The LEGO Movie 2 The Rexcelsior! (70839) comes in at 1,826 pieces and comes with Rex Dangervest and Emmet minifigures. By far, I think this is the first alternate version of Emmet that we get to see among so many that are generously included across several TLM2 sets. This particular remake of Emmet is comically called Stubble Trouble Emmet owing to the fact that he just dotted his face using markers to mimic those cool and manly, facial hairs that Rex has.
The Rexcelsior! (70839) also features several raptor microfigures, 3 of which are a first in any LEGO set. It also includes two nanofigures of Emmet and Rex, and microbuilds of Emmet’s house, a forklift, interaptors, and a dropship. I guess LEGO intends the Rexcelsior (70839) to be a microscaled build similar to the likes of the LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle (71043) and LEGO Marvel Superheroes The SHIELD Helicarrier (76042) though obviously in a much smaller size coming in at around 1,800++ pieces.
The LEGO Movie 2 The Rexcelsior! (70839) is expected to retail for $149.99 or £ 139.99, and will be available to all LEGO fans beginning May 1, 2019. Read on for the set’s full product description below. We don’t have additional images of this set as of the moment except for some close-up ones of Emmet and Rex. I’ll give you an update as more images come in later on. For more info on the current TLM2 sets, visit shop.LEGO.com
