This next LEGO Movie 2 promotional seems to be so low-key that I never recall any mention of it among LEGO’s usual information channels. But considering how sparse they are, then it’s understandable why LEGO would like to keep it this way. Some LEGO fans and VIP members have taken to Twitter to share their find of what could be one of the rarest LEGO minifigure recently released. As it seems, several exclusive and signed LEGO Movie 2 minifigures were given away at selected LEGO Stores in celebration of the upcoming release of the film sequel.
LEGO VIP member Andrew tweeted yesterday that the LEGO Store in Garden State Plaza in Paramus, New Jersey gave away a signed a Wasteland Batman minifigure from the LEGO Movie 2. This rare and exclusive minifigure features LEGO Batman as he is seen in the Battle-Ready Batman and MetalBeard (70836) and Welcome to Apocalypseburg (70840) sets, and it comes with a one-of-a-kind signed minifigure baseplate.

According to the very fortunate LEGO fan, the exclusive minifigure was given away to the first customer of the day who bought a LEGO Movie 2 product (in his case three blind bags of the LEGO Movie 2 collectible minifigures) on February 2. Furthermore, it seems that a handful of these promotional and signed LEGO Movie 2 minifigures were also given away in other LEGO Stores in the country. Another Twitter user also posted another similar find when she bought several LEGO Movie 2 CMF blind bags at the LEGO Store in Chandler Fashion Center in Chandler, Arizona. What she received was an exclusively signed Tiffany Haddish minifigure, with the actress playing the role of Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi in the film. It’s nice if we can have a closer look at Haddish’s minifigure counterpart, considering that we don’t have any similar minifigure released together with the currently offered LEGO Movie 2 sets.

It’s interesting to see which other LEGO Movie 2 characters also received the same exclusive treatment. Will we see Emmet or Rex (both played by Chris Pratt), WyldStyle (Elizabeth Banks), Sweet Mayhem (Stephanie Beatriz) and other signed minifigures as well?
Let us know if you ever spot them in your local LEGO Stores.
