So we’ve already gone over how “LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part,” while debuting at #1 in the box office on its premiere last weekend, was markedly not as heavy a box-office breaker as the 2014 original film. But that’s far from the minds of LEGO’s primary toy manufacturing business, which is still cranking out new tie-in sets for the movie.
In fact, a number of these new “LEGO Movie 2” sets were announced towards the end of last month. Quite recently, we got a heads up on three tie-ins, two that were mentioned previously and one new addition.
Official images of these new tie-ins to the latest big-budget “LEGO Movie” were revealed February 12, ahead of the 2019 New York Toy Fair. They are the Shimmer & Shine Sparkle Spa! (70837), the Queen Whatevra’s “So-Not-Evil” Space Palace (70838) and the Emmet’s Triple-Deck Couch Mech (70842) which is the all-new set that wasn’t part of the advance notice from January.
Shimmer & Shine Sparkle Spa! (70837) – US$69.99
- Includes Wyldstyle and Benny minifigures, plus Balthazar mini-doll figure (LEGO Friends-scale)
- Also has Balthazar-Bat micro-figure and brick-built figures of Unikitty, Flaminga, Eight and Archimedes
- lever-operated revolving wall (to transform Balthazar into bat form), hot tub with lid and trapdoor
Queen Watevra’s ‘So-Not-Evil’ Space Palace (70838) – US$99.99
- Includes Bachelor Batman minifigure plus Celeste mini-doll figure
- Also has brick-built figures of Royal Guard (with buildable lollipop), Queen Watevra WaNabi, Ice Cream Cone, Star and Heart (x2)

Emmet’s Triple-Deck Couch Mech (70842) – US$29.99 Target stores (possible exclusive)
