LEGO has finally released a stash of official images and complete product description of the mammoth LEGO Movie 2 Welcome to Apocalypseburg set (70840). True enough, it was on eBay where we first spotted this earlier last month (the post was eventually taken down as of this writing), while at the same time, a certain YouTuber is now exploiting a technical-legal loophole that allows him to keep his review video up in the video sharing platform in spite of the embargo mandated by LEGO. But whatever is the case, it is still good to see these crystal clear images of LEGO’s largest TLM2 tie-in set, Welcome to Apocalypseburg (70840).
This direct-to-consumer set comes in at 3,178 pieces and will retail for $300. It will be available directly from LEGO brand stores starting January 16, 2019. Check out these images and read on for the Welcome to Apocalypseburg (70840) official set description. For the rest of the LEGO Movie 2 sets, be sure to drop by at shop.LEGO.com for more details.
