LEGO Reveals the Official Character Names of the LEGO Movie 2 Collectible Minifigures (71023)

LEGO has finally unveiled the official names of the characters that comprise the LEGO Movie 2 Collectible Minifigures (71023). We had a closer look at their official images, and we already know how they’re distributed per box, and now LEGO has finally made the reveal giving us an official description of this new CMF series.

First off, we have some of the main stars of the sequel and also those from the previous film, including some new for 2019 minifigure costumes and accessories such as Emmet’s headphone wig, Lucy’s hood, and Rex’s Fedora and wig. President Business also comes with a new golf club accessory while Benny has a new mechanical arm, toolbox, and sporting a rather tough expression. Unikitty is being her usual self, beaming with positivity.

We also have some familiar faces from the first LEGO Movie that are now battle-hardened after the tragic events of Taco Tuesday. We have Apocalypseburg Abe and his battle-ax, The Swamp Creature with new torso prints, and Sherry Scratchen-Post and a new cat minifigure aptly named Scarfield.

For most LEGO collectors, this might be one of the main selling points of the LEGO Movie 2 Collectible MInifigures (71023) series. The iconic characters of the classic fairy tale Wizard of Oz are now rendered in LEGO minifigs. LEGO also went the extra mile to make this quartet extra special: we have a new Dorothy hairpiece, new hat accessories for Tin Man and Scarecrow, and a new lion’s mane accessory for the Cowardly Lion. Add the Wicked Witch from LEGO Dimensions (71221) or from the Ultimate Bat Mobile (70917), then you have one great classic collection of fairy tale characters.

In keeping up with the musical vibe of the LEGO Movie 2, and to give audiences a glimpse on how Lucy and the band rock the house pre-Apocalypseburg times, we now have Flashback Lucy and her new golden record accessory. Kitty Pop with an electric guitar sporting a new print, Hula Lula with her vinyl record and microphone, and Candy Rapper with a new 1×2 tile cassette tape.

The LEGO Movie 2 Collectible Minifigures (71023) Box Distribution Revealed

LEGO has officially revealed the upcoming LEGO Movie 2 Collectible Minifigures (71023) via its Facebook page. We are also aware that each box contains 60 minifigures, however, we don’t have an inkling on how the 20 minifigures in the series are distributed. Much so if LEGO opted to throw in a certain chase minifigure, similar to what it did with the LEGO Movie CMF Series 18 (71021) Classic Policeman minifig. But thanks to Promobricks and BrickSanity, we now have an idea about the LEGO Movie 2 Collectible Minifigures (71023) box distribution, and how many complete sets can we get out of each box.

Thankfully, it is confirmed that there are three complete sets included in each box of 60 minifigures. And to make it even easier, Promobricks has also confirmed that each row of 20 minifigs corresponds exactly to one complete series, virtually removing any efforts of feeling your way through each blind bag if ever you can get your hands on an unopened box. This is a much-welcomed gesture from LEGO, and as far as I remember a first one of sorts.

One thing that you’ll notice is that the blind bag for the LEGO Movie 2 CMF is also considerably larger than its predecessors, similar to the size of the LEGO Unikitty Collectible Figures (41775). Furthermore, according to Promobricks, the material used for the blind bag is somewhat thinner than before which makes feeling your way through each minifigure relatively easier.

Since the LEGO Movie 2 Collectible Minifigures (71023) box distribution has already been revealed, making it much easier to acquire a complete set, we can expect a lot of LEGO collectors rushing their way to LEGO Stores at the end of the month to be one of the firsts to get an unopened box. The LEGO Movie 2 CMF (71023) is not yet listed at shop.LEGO.com, but you can bet that some LEGO physical stores already have them stocked in their storerooms.

A Closer Look at The LEGO Movie 2 Emmet’s Pod (853874)

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.

So what do you think of this newest LEGO pod? Will you add this to your cart? Share us what you think about this latest pod in the comments below. Thanks again to Promobricks for the tip.

A Closer Look at the LEGO Movie 2 Collectible Minifigures (71023)

Before anything else, allow me to greet everyone a happy 2019! Yes, it has been quite a while since I made my last post here in the blog site with all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, and not to mention a seriously annoying case of flu that has been plaguing our family (including myself) starting this week. But yeah, everything is still manageable. Anyways, there has been a lot going on in the brick-built world of LEGO during the past couple of days, and allow me to start with what most of us is very excited about. We saw their debut in LEGO’s 2019 H1 (or first half of the year) catalog, and this time thanks to the effort of Promobricks, we now have a closer look at the very exciting, LEGO Movie 2 Collectible Minifigures (71023).

Bear in mind that LEGO has not yet released the ‘official’ names of these minifigures but judging from a rough Google Translation from the German online toy store B&B, we can have the following tentative names. Check these out.

The LEGO Movie 2 Collectible Minifigure Series (71023) Revealed!

This news has been floating around the internet for a couple of days already, but I feel like it has not caught up wind with the majority of the LEGO fan community. We’re literally counting the days before the year ends, and this means that several LEGO store outlets have already received their share of LEGO catalogs for the first half of 2019. Thankfully, we have one LEGO fan that managed to take hold of a copy of the 2019 LEGO catalog in Polish, and has taken time to upload a video of its contents. And to our delight, other than the January 2019 LEGO sets that we can expect to be available this December and January 1st, we now get to see as well the much-anticipated LEGO Movie 2 Collectible Minifigure Series (71023). Check out the following video, particularly at the 19:10 mark.

Based on a rough Google translation, the LEGO Movie 2 Collectible Minifigure Series (71023) is expected to arrive in LEGO Stores in May, 2019. This CMF series also comes with its series of costumed minifigs which will be a sure hit to LEGO fans: Giraffe Guy, Watermelon Guy, and Crayon Girl. It also prominently features the classic characters from the WIzard of Oz such as Dorothy Gale, Cowardly Lion, Scarecrow, and the Tin Man. We don’t have an official list of character names for this new CMF series, but Minifigure Price Guide came up with a tentative list of names that we can use for reference. I modified some of them to better fit their description.

Dorothy Gale with Toto

 

 

Good Morning Emmet!

I personally like this one, it reminds me of the Tim Burton film Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter

 

 

Cowardly Lion

 

 

Guitar Girl

 

 

Giraffe Guy

 

 

Rex Dangervest with Baby Dino

 

 

Unikitty

I’m not really sure why LEGO opted to add this particular version of Unikitty in this series considering that we already have a handful of this. Perhaps a new version of her such as the red, Apocalypse Unikitty will be a better choice.

 

 

Golfin’ President Business

LEGO Star Wars Kessel Mine Worker (40299) Minifigure Spotted for Sale at LEGOLAND California

When this month was still rather new, LEGO released on one of its retail partners, Barnes & Noble, a rather uncommon minifigure polybag that ties in to Solo: A Star Wars Story, released just months ago. The LEGO Star Wars Kessel Mine Worker (40299) minifigure is yet another jazzed-up minifig with an accompanying display stand similar to that of the Mud-Trooper Han Solo (40300).

Still, it’s not as if there are Barnes & Noble stores everywhere. Fortunately, LEGO means to save collectors in California the trouble of hunting LEGO Star Wars Kessel Mine Worker (40299) minifigure down by having their LEGOLAND theme park carry it.

Whereas Barnes & Noble has a minimum LEGO purchase threshold in order to get the 40299 polybag free, LEGOLAND California has the Kessel Mine Worker for straight purchase at the same price as the LEGO Star Wars DJ (40298) from The Last Jedi at $2.99 apiece. That is however a tad more expensive than the Barnes & Noble alternative straight purchase price of $1.27 only.

Meanwhile, LEGOLAND California also has the Mud-Trooper Han Solo polybag available for the same minimum purchase requirement as in Shop@Home; that’s $35 in LEGO Star Wars stuff. Visitors to California’s LEGOLAND resort who are searching for these minifigs are in luck for the foreseeable future.

LEGO Bricktober Harry Potter Minifigures (5005254) Already Available in Some Barnes & Noble Stores

It’s been almost two months now since LEGO made its pronouncement on what will be of their limited-edition Bricktober minifigure sets in the US, since they’re only for Toys R Us stores which have since been closed. At least one set, particularly the  LEGO Bricktober Harry Potter Minifigures (5005254), has been promised to be available in Barnes & Noble Stores, but since then no word’s come out on when.

Well, although LEGO hasn’t clarified the release date for the LEGO Bricktober Harry Potter minifig set, it doesn’t mean it’s no longer coming out. In fact, several B&N stores have finally been found with the set on shelves, just sitting there with no fanfare.

It was first thought that this Bricktober set is going to be available via a Barnes & Noble promotion. However, it looks like these highly sought after collectible is now found on B&N’s store shelves for sale. Buyers have noted that the Bricktober Harry Potter set came with a retail price of $7.99.

The LEGO Bricktober Harry Potter minifigures (5005254) include Madame Hooch, Professor Horace Slughorn, Dolores Umbridge and the Boggart in the form of Professor Severus Snape (in Longbottom’s granny’s clothes). In the US it’s a B&N exclusive, while other Bricktober sets such as Jurassic World, Marvel and Ninjago) are said to be released in LEGO Stores.

Elsewhere (aka where Toys R Us are still open), the sets are available as per Bricktober mechanics, added free with a minimum purchase (or bought separately). If you’re looking for more Barnes & Noble LEGO stuff, there’s also the Star Wars Kessel Mine Worker (40299).

LEGO Star Wars Kessel Mine Worker (40299) Minifigure Now Available at Barnes & Noble

If a limited edition LEGO minifigure is of the Star Wars line, then there’s a chance that it will be given some extra attention. We’ve already seen this trend over the past year with numerous limited edition LEGO Star Wars minifigures such as the 2017’s R3-M2 (40268) and DJ (40298), and the most recent being Mud-trooper Han Solo (40300) himself. The latter is now available over at Shop@Home for every minimum $35 LEGO purchase, but he’s not the only one and that’s not the only place where it’s going on. And now it looks like it will soon be followed a similar promo offered only at Barnes & Noble: the LEGO Star Wars Kessel Mine Worker (40299).

According to a report by fellow news source,  The Brick Fan, this next exclusive LEGO Star Wars collectible minifigure is currently available as a gift-with-purchase over at Barnes & Noble for a certain minimum amount. To be precise, the Kessel Mine Worker (40299) can be yours to keep for any single receipt, LEGO Star Wars purchase worth $29.95 and above at B & N.

This Barnes & Noble promotion is said to run until October 18. But apparently if you can’t be bothered to by any other LEGO Star Wars sets from them to hit the minimum, then you can apparently buy the Kessel Mine Worker (40299) polybag itself for only $1.27 apiece. What are you waiting for?
