“LEGO Movie 2” Pods – Emmet (853874) and Sweet Mayhem (853875) Now Available Online at Shop@Home

The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part” is now set to complete its first week in the box office, While its opening weekend saw a number 1 debut despite being markedly less than the premiere of the first film in 2014, LEGO and Warner Bros. are still positive thanks to good critic reviews.

In the meantime, a good number of new LEGO sets tying in to the animated blockbuster sequel have been available on retail and online. Among them are character pods for the film’s characters such as Emmet (853874) and Sweet Mayhem (853875), previewed only last month but are now available on LEGO Shop@Home.

853874 (6)

Both LEGO Movie 2 pods are expectedly similar to all products of this theme, containing a character minifigure (or mini-doll figure in case of Sweet Mayhem) plus plenty of accessories that can be held in the character’s hands, attached to their body, or assembled with the pods themselves to create a crane for 853874 and DJ station for 853875, respectively.

These pods also have on their front lids some lenticular images that alternate between showing the faces of Emmet or Mayhem, and the “LEGO Movie 2” logo. It’s plain to see that these LEGO Movie 2 Pods can easily cater to sectors of the general LEGO fan base, with minifigure Emmet geared towards “traditional” LEGO designs and mini-doll figure Sweet Mayhem for the LEGO Friends market due to similar aesthetics.

Both the Emmet (853874) and Mayhem (853875) “Lego Movie 2” character pods are priced at $8.99 on Shop@Home. Several other movie tie-ins are already either similarly available to these two, or will be so by late February or early March.

The LEGO Movie 2 Sweet Mayhem’s Pod (853875) Revealed

Hot on the heels of the LEGO Movie 2 Emmet’s Pod (853874), the same Promobricks reader who shared images of this newest collectible set, has also revealed that the LEGO Movie 2 theme will not have one, but two LEGO pods as well. Thanks again to Promobricks, we now have our first look at the LEGO Movie 2 Sweet Mayhem’s Pod (853875).

Coming in at 28 pieces, the LEGO Movie 2 Sweet Mayhem’s Pod (853875) comes in a white-colored pod with, of course, Sweet Mayhem herself. The pod also sports a lenticular front panel showing the LEGO Movie 2 title and an image of Sweet Mayhem with her helmet on. I’m curious though on why LEGO did not opt to include Mayhem’s helmet in this particular pod, choosing instead to include her pony-tailed hair accessory.

The special parts included in the pod itself are quite interesting: from the heart-shaped plate to several clips and hinges. I’m not really sure what the pod is trying to replicate with these very limited parts – it may be like a mini-cockpit of some sorts, but I’ll leave this to your imagination on trying to figure this one out.

Similar to the Emmet’s Pod, the LEGO Movie 2 Sweet Mayhem’s Pod (853875) was accidentally released earlier than expected, with several displayed sets immediately returned to the storeroom until their official release date sometime in February. Unlike Emmet’s minifigure which you can practically get from almost all LEGO sets, the Sweet Mayhem’s Pod (853875) offers a good opportunity to get this particular minidoll version without breaking the bank. An alternate version of Sweet Mayhem, where she particularly wears a helmet, can be found in the following sets: Introducing Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi (70824); Sweet Mayhem’s Systar Starship! (70830); and MetalBeard’s Heavy Metal Motor Trike! (70834).

Once again, a big thanks to Promobricks for sharing these images.

2019 LEGO Catalog International Version Now Available Online

It’s this time of the year when you can expect the 2019 LEGO Catalog to be rolling out in LEGO brand stores. And in case you haven’t received your copy yet, LEGO has been kind enough to upload a PDF version of this catalog, highlighting more than a hundred sets to watch out for in this first half of 2019. This may not be something new for some of us, given that there are those who managed to have a copy of this catalog ahead of LEGO uploading its online version. Nevertheless, it’s still nice that this is now made available for everyone to see. You may either view or download a copy of the 2019 LEGO Catalog right here.

If you have a copy already, let’s take a moment to look at some of its highlights, and of what to expect from LEGO starting this January.

To start with, LEGO is understandably keen in heavily promoting its brick-built film. Gracing the cover of the 2019 LEGO Catalog are none other than the main characters of the LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part. The table of contents underscores LEGO’s preference to present their new sets and product in a developmental fashion starting with the LEGO Duplo and Juniors line. Though the latter will eventually be replaced by the new 4+ theme, LEGO is still giving some room for some newer LEGO Juniors sets.

LEGO has also confirmed what we have shared before last November that indeed, Disney and LEGO have teamed up once again to come with another wave of Pixar inspired sets. Toy Story 4 is still far off slated to be released in theaters on June 21, so the details about these LEGO tie-in sets is still under wraps to avoid unintended film spoilers. What we are sure about these upcoming sets, as the 2019 LEGO Catalog suggests, is that it will be released under the 4+ and Duplo themes.

LEGO Disney Princess is also here to stay, with LEGO adding a “Build and Swap” play feature similar to modular sets.

LEGO Friends also introduces another novelty set with its Heart Box series. This series of stackable builds features minidoll versions of Andrea, Emma, Stephanie, Olivia, and Mia. Each set also doubles as a sort of a keepsake holder where you can keep each minidoll and other related accessories.

The heroic firefighters and aerial police of LEGO City take center stage in this first wave of 2019 LEGO City sets. This newest collection highlights new for 2019 features such as a 3-stud multi-shot water cannon, a water pump that launches LEGO water elements, floating minifigure parachute, and the return of the light and sound brick as demonstrated in the new Downtown Fire Brigade (60216) and Sky Police Air Base (60210).

And of course, the current CMF rave is still looking more awesome in the 2019 LEGO Catalog – the LEGO Movie 2 Collectible Minifigures (71023). What makes this latest CMF series more exciting is the inclusion of the main Wizard of Oz characters and several costumed minifigs. While the LEGO Movie 2 CMF is expected to hit LEGO Stores sometime next month, the 2019 LEGO Catalog already teased on the arrival of the LEGO CMF Series 19 sometime in May. Expect more news to come in about this next wave of collectible minifigures as early as next month, especially that the Nuremberg and New York Toy Fairs are just around the corner. For the rest of the LEGO Movie 2 tie-in sets, be sure to visit LEGO Shop@Home for details.

And of course, the epic conclusion to the finger-snapping catastrophe that Thanos brought to the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe will finally be revealed in Avengers: Endgame scheduled to be in theaters this April. The LEGO Marvel fandom can hardly wait on what LEGO has in store to celebrate the release of this grand film. Suffice it to say, LEGO and Disney are keeping a tight lid on any potential spoilers (which often comes from other third-party resellers) that may come along. So for the time being, the 2019 LEGO Catalog only has a single page, “Avengers Coming Soon” reminder for all of us. Perhaps the upcoming Toy Fairs hold the keys to unlocking these secrets – we just have to wait and see.

Aside from what was mentioned above, there are a great number of sets that you may want to watch out for this January. Racing from the Speed Champions theme, I do hope to get the 1967 Mini Cooper S Rally and 2018 MINI John Cooper Works Buggy (75894). If you’re a fan of the classic LEGO Ninjago sets, then you’ll definitely don’t want to miss out on the new LEGO Ninjago Legacy series, particularly Cole’s Earth Driller (70669). LEGO Star Wars fans are also in for a treat with LEGO’s new wave of Microfighters Series 6 – the Escape Pod vs. Dewback Microfighters (75228) is definitely a must-have for me. Finally, LEGO Technic is still going strong this year with an impressive number of new sets kick-starting 2019. I’m not really a fan of the larger Technic sets, but I like the idea behind the Getaway Truck (42090) and Police Pursuit (42091), and how they get to be combined together similar to 2018’s WHACK! (42072) and BASH! (42073).

1967 Mini Cooper S Rally and 2018 MINI John Cooper Works Buggy (75894)

So there you have it – the 2019 LEGO Catalog from January to June sure has plenty of sets to offer to everybody. With more than a hundred sets to choose from during this first half of the year, it’s a bit of a challenge to zero in on that one set that will top your LEGO “must have” list. Which among these will top your own list? Let me know in the comments below.

The LEGO Movie 2’s Sweet Mayhem Alternate Figure Revealed

The LEGO Movie 2 sets are about to be released this month (right after Christmas exactly), and now that LEGO has listed the first wave of sets for this theme at shop.LEGO.com, it seems that more info is coming in regarding one of the film’s mysterious characters. The person of Sweet Mayhem is still shrouded in mystery, but thanks to LEGO Shop@Home, the character under the enigmatic helmet is now revealed.

There are three sets in particular that includes Sweet Mayhem’s minidoll figure. And among these three sets, we get to see her featured at the back portion of some these sets as posted on LEGO’s shopping portal. To be exact, only two out of three sets actually shows Sweet Mayhem with her helmet off, revealing a personality that is both sweet and chaotic at the same time. Take a look below.

 

Introducing Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi (70824)

115 pieces | Ages 6+ | $9.99 USD

 

Sweet Mayhem’s Systar Starship (70830)

500 pieces | Ages 9+ | $69.99 USD

She kinds of remind me of Vanellope von Schweetz from Wreck it Ralph in terms of personality. From the looks of it, my guess is that she can be both emphatic and mean at the same time. Will she turn out to be the film’s lead baddie as we thought she will based from the trailer? Will soon find out in February once the film lands in US theaters.

The LEGO Movie 2 is slated to hit theaters on February 9, and voiced by the same awesome artists from the first film such as Chris Pratt (Emmet and Rex Dangervest), Elizabeth Banks (Lucy), and Will Arnett (LEGO Batman) among others.
