Here’s A Round-Up of LEGO Movie 2 Spoiler-Free Reviews You May Want To Read

The LEGO Movie 2 was slated for early screenings yesterday, and as such, we now have critics and movie goers sharing their two cents whether or not the sequel lived up to its expectations. It was quite a surprise that Warner Bros opted for an early screening in some select locations ahead of the film’s general release on February 8. My bet is that WB is somehow banking on the positive reviews and buzz that the sequel’s early screening will generate. So did it really earn the accolades of critics? Let’s find out with this collection of LEGO Movie 2 spoiler-free reviews coming from across the internet.

Just to be sure, I steered away from spoilers so you can guarantee that the links I included here will not lead you into spoiler land. Nevertheless, knowing how the audience and critics saw the film provides us with insight on how this sequel is related to its predecessor.

First off, we have Germain Lussier writing for io9. He says “The LEGO Movie 2 is a hilarious, clever, emotional sequel – though it takes a little bit to get there.” Perhaps this is due to the fact that after five years since the release of the first LEGO Movie, audiences are now accustomed to the unique style of story-telling spearheaded by the first film. Other LEGO inspired films such as the LEGO Batman Movie and the LEGO Ninjago Movie may have somehow given audiences a feeling that this is just ‘another’ LEGO movie. But then again, seeing how the narrative of the real-world characters of Finn (who is now older, with a slightly different approach in playing with LEGO pieces) and his younger sister, Bianca ‘should’ play with LEGO bricks is an interesting plot to see.

This particular strain on how one should play with LEGO was perfectly illustrated in the first LEGO Movie, especially between that of an adult collector and builder who is adamant in following building instructions (portrayed by the character of the father, aka the Man Upstairs), and that of an imaginative child (as portrayed by the younger Finn) that would explore all possibilities of play using the LEGO brick. However, the LEGO Movie 2 now shifts the conflict on a whole different level: with Finn’s more ‘modern’ and ‘mature’ treatment over his LEGO collection, and that of Bianca’s more avant-garde approach in building. The only question is: which approach to LEGO play is better? According to Variety’s Peter Debruge, begging the question makes the LEGO Movie 2 a bit shaky. “The Lego Movie 2 ought to have raised the bar, and while it’s faster, denser, and jam-packed with all sorts of catchy new songs (including one, ‘Catchy Song,’ that’s insidiously engineered to get stuck inside your head), all that energy only goes so far to cover for the wobblier foundation on which this film is built. At the most basic level, it was a bad call to treat li’l Bianca as a villain when what she really represents is an extreme case of Finn’s own approach”. The complex question of how one should play with LEGO is perhaps something that was too difficult to tackle for the sequel. There is no prescribed formula on how one should creatively play with LEGO pieces, and this is something that the LEGO Movie 2 is expected to have explored more.

William Bibbiani from IGN also shares his verdict on the LEGO Movie 2, giving it a score of 7.5 out of 10. “The LEGO Movie 2 isn’t quite as funny or as brilliantly executed as the original, but it’s an ambitious, likable sequel. Kids will enjoy it and adults will appreciate that the filmmakers took it seriously, and tried to say something meaningful. Just don’t think about it too much, because the LEGO universe is often weird and confusing.”

Writing for Vox, Todd VanDerWeff gave the film a 3 out of 5 rating sharing that, “Unfortunately, ‘pointless, despite some solid moments’ describes too much of The Lego Movie 2, a film with its heart in the right place, some great gags in its head, and an inability to make anything connect beyond individual jokes or plot points. I had a good time watching it, but I could always see the filmmakers just offscreen, holding up the big table the Legos were scattered across, sweating and straining to keep the whole thing from toppling over.”

Rotten Tomatoes gives it a 92% on its Tomatometer, an average of 7.2/10, with a critics consensus saying that “While it isn’t quite as much fun as its predecessor, The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part fits neatly into an animated all-ages franchise with heart and humor to spare.”

As I mentioned earlier, I think this is a common problem with sequels: its predecessor is sometimes so good that it’s a bit difficult to have a sequel overshadow its success. Just to be clear and fair, I haven’t seen the LEGO Movie 2 yet so I will put a brake on my personal comments. Just like with the first film, I’m sure that Warner Bros and the LEGO Group have children in mind when they came up with the LEGO Movie 2. For sure, all the gags and comedic scenes all have their usual endearing LEGO brand of humor, but it seems that the overall theme of the story did not have the same appeal as  that of the first film.

So what do you think about these LEGO Movie 2 spoiler-free reviews? Do you think the critics are right with their assessment? Share us your spoiler-free comments below (in case you have seen the film the already).

The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part will arrive in most theaters in the US and rest of the world on February 8, 2019. For more information about the LEGO Movie 2 tie-in sets, please visit shop.LEGO.com.

The LEGO Movie World Coming to LEGOLAND Florida Resort

LEGOLAND Florida Resort is adding another attraction that will make everything in the theme park more awesome. It will be dedicating a significant portion of the park to what is call as The LEGO Movie World, featuring new attractions based on the first LEGO Movie and its sequel, the LEGO Movie 2.  Furthermore, the wait will not be that long since Merlin Entertainment Group has announced a March 27 opening just roughly two months from now.

Read on for the official press release of the opening of the LEGO Movie World, followed by a video announcement from Merlin Entertainment courtesy of BricksFanz.

The LEGO Movie 2 is set to open in theaters next week, February 8, 2019. Just be sure not to get caught with the LSS-inducing effects of its Catchy Song.

WINTER HAVEN, Fla, Jan. 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Opening March 27, LEGOLAND Florida Resort is taking guests from the theater to the theme park with the launch of THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD. Created in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, this impressive expansion features three new rides and numerous attractions, all inspired by the characters and themes of the worldwide blockbuster THE LEGO MOVIE™ and the exciting new big-screen animated adventure sequel THE LEGO MOVIE™ 2: The Second Part.

The creative masterminds from Merlin Magic Making, the global creative and delivery division of parent company Merlin Entertainments Group, re-created Bricksburg with its lovable characters, creative eating spaces and authentic city scape where guests can experience Emmet’s Super Suite.

“THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD is our largest addition to date and will provide guests around the world with the ultimate movie-to-theme park experience,” said Keith Carr, project director of Merlin Magic Making. “The park just screams fun everywhere you look; kids and families alike can interact with various characters, enjoy ride technology that’s the first of its kind and dine on tasty tacos at Taco Tuesday Everyday. Not to mention, we have a spaceship playground!”

While the Park’s theming and immersion of THE LEGO MOVIE universe will captivate guests of all ages, the three brand-new rides stay true to LEGOLAND Florida’s kid-friendly experience.

“The rides truly capture the whimsical fun and quirky nature of the popular LEGO movies,” said Rex Jackson, general manager of LEGOLAND Florida. “The Masters of Flight ride will be iconic to our park, Unikitty’s ride sings and spins with her ever-changing emotions and the Battle of Bricksburg is themed around huge LEGO DUPLO® aliens. With great partners in Warner Bros. we’ve developed a park that will bring a lot of smiles to children and their families. We’re thrilled to be the only location for fans to experience THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD.”

THE LEGO MOVIE Masters of Flight takes guests on a suspended ride aboard Emmet’s Triple Decker Couch surrounded by a full-dome virtual screen, giving the sensational feeling of flying through a world created completely from LEGO® bricks. The attraction is the first in the world at a major theme park that embeds a 180-degree turn in the ride experience. The ride animation will feature a humorous and magical adventure as guests soar through Cloud Cuckoo Land, dive to Middle Zealand and splash down on the waters of Pirate’s Cove.

Unikitty’s Disco Drop takes guests through a rainbow-filled journey based on Unikitty and her many moods. Once on the ride, guests will swoop to the tiptop of Cloud Cuckoo Land, then drop, spin and bounce back down to earth, creating a thrilling and frenzied experience.

At Battle of Bricksburg, the only water ride in THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD, riders are challenged to stop DUPLO aliens from invading and stealing LEGO bricks by spraying water at targets from their boats. The riders aren’t the only ones who can enjoy playing in the water, outside of the ride will be water cannons for guests to spray and help the riders save the day.

THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD will also feature Taco Tuesday Everyday eatery, The Awesome Shop, filled with take-home collectables and a space-themed playground structure inspired by Benny’s spaceship which will include special photo opportunities and character interactions.

To continue the fun, guests can enjoy the ultimate vacation (or slumber party) just steps away at LEGOLAND® Hotel in the new THE LEGO MOVIE themed rooms. Designed with familiar scenery and beloved characters from the movie, no detail is left untouched. Adults can relax in their own room inspired by Emmet’s apartment, while kids dream of spaceship adventures in a separate children’s room themed after Benny’s Spaceship.

No matter where you stay or how you choose to spend your adventure, awesome awaits at THE LEGO MOVIE WORLD!

Will You Care to Listen to This 5-Hour Long, LEGO Movie 2 Catchy Song?

If you’ve already seen the LEGO Movie 2 on its early viewing schedule yesterday Saturday, then you’ll probably know how the film effectively creates a virtually, never-ending loop of LSS (Last Song Syndrome) gag in your head. Just like the upbeat vibe of the hit song from the first film, everything is still awesome (somehow) with this sequel considering the reviews that the film has been receiving lately. Unlike the LEGO Movie’s theme song that easily communicated the fun in building LEGO sets with friends or family, the sequel’s choice of song to be its major theme is quite underwhelming. Listening to a 2-minute run of the LEGO Movie 2 Catchy Song is one thing, but listening to it for 5 hours is probably enough to give you the worst LSS ever. Watch it here, if you dare.

The 5-hour video loop of the LEGO Movie 2 Catchy Song is the idea of the film’s marketers, hoping to replicate the same success as that of the Everything is Awesome jingle. But honestly, who will listen to a 5-hour song whose only 1-liner lyrics  says, “This song’s gonna get stuck inside your head”? I find it really mind-boggling if I find myself doing that.

The funny thing though is that the 5-hour long, obnoxious song actually has an ending. After listening to it for hours, the narrator says “Congratulations, if you are still listening, you are officially ready for The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part.” Wow, talk about a whole new level of annoying, subliminal marketing control, if you believe in such things.

The LEGO Movie 2 is scheduled to arrive in all US theaters on February 8. New LEGO Movie 2 sets are now offered at shop.LEGO.com including the perfectly fun Welcome to Apocalypseburg (70840) set. A new set has also been revealed by LEGO in the form of The Rexcelsior! (70839) at the recently concluded 2019 London Toy Fair.

 

Here Are Some of the New LEGO Products Revealed at the 2019 London Toy Fair

Brick Fanatics is at the floor of the Olympia London for the 2019 London Toy Fair, where the LEGO Group has returned for a round of new LEGO products revealed, celebrating the release of its brick sequel the LEGO Movie 2. Aside from bagging the Licensed Product of the Year award, UK’s 66th Toy Fair was also an opportunity for LEGO to showcase some of its products.

The LEGO Group attended the event, occupying a private showroom where it introduced some of its TLM2 product tie-ins that will be out this year. Though there was no new set reveals other than the cool LEGO Movie 2 The Rexcelsior! (70839) which was only mentioned and was not on display, there are plenty of LEGO Movie 2 lights, stationeries, and stickers to name a few.

Some of these new LEGO product include new TLM2 key lights and torches. There is also a line of bags, reusable stickers and other school necessities that kids will surely enjoy.

Again, there was no other new LEGO product reveals that TLG opted to show at the 2019 London Toy Fair except for the Rexcelsior. We hope to see more new LEGO products showcased later on when the 2019 New York Toy Fair kicks in next month.

Thanks once again to Brick Fanatics for sharing the above photos.

Go Beyond the Movie with The LEGO Movie 2 Video Game – New Trailer Released

Since its announcement last November, WB and TT Games have been busy in promoting The LEGO Movie 2 video game. And as we inch closer to the film’s debut in theaters, WB Games UK has released its first trailer for the tie-up video game that retells the adventure and Emmet and Lucy across the Systar System and as they fight formidable Duplo invaders.

With over 100 playable characters to unlock, the LEGO Movie 2 video game features several worlds to explore based on the film. Not much has been said regarding game play and the various levels that players can explore, but its sure to have several key elements that are distinct to other LEGO video game titles. We can expect a certain degree of co-op play using almost all characters that will appear in the film. We might as well speculate that some of these playable characters might end to be an actual minifigure later on. It will also be nice to see if these characters will somehow find their way to become the next series of TLM2 collectible minifigures. Players also get to explore the various levels and worlds that will also be shown in the film.

The LEGO Movie 2 video game is expected to arrive on February 26, 2019 to be released on the Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC retailing for $40. It will be available for the Nintendo Switch after a month, specifically on March 26. You may pre-order your copy of the game via Amazon US or if you wish to avail of the free LEGO Movie 2 Star-Stuck Emmet polybag, then you might want to check out with Amazon UK or EB Games in Australia.

Here’s A Closer Look at the LEGO Movie 2 McDonalds Happy Meal Toys

Last week, I reported that the next wave of Happy Meal toys will feature several characters from the LEGO Movie 2. We had an initial look at these oversized minifigure heads/storage space/key holders, thanks to a promotional ad that was initially released in Russia. Now thanks to some insider info from Fast Food Toys and Happy Meal Toys for Kids, we now have a closer look at these LEGO Movie 2 McDonalds Happy Meal toys and their expected date of arrival in US stores. Check out the video below, courtesy of Fast Food Toys.

As you can see from the video, each LEGO Movie 2 McDonalds Happy Meal toy comes with a simple play feature inside. Though we only get to see a sample based on how the Wonder Woman toy looks like from the inside, other promotional flyers suggest that each toy may actually contain a different activity or mini-game. Each toy also comes with a free LEGOLAND coupon where kids go for free together with a paying adult to all LEGOLAND Resorts and LEGOLAND Discovery Centers.

Furthermore, these toys are now currently available across Taiwan and other regions and will arrive in the US on January 29. So what do you think about these new LEGO Movie 2 McDonalds Happy Meal toys? Do you think it’s worth a trip to McDonalds? Let me know what you think in the comments below. Special thanks also to Candid Bricks for the heads up.

The LEGO Movie 2 The Rexcelsior! (70839) Revealed at the London Toy Fair 2019

Summer seems to come early as LEGO finally lifted the veil on one of its second wave of LEGO Movie 2 sets at the London Toy Fair 2019. UK’s premiere toy fair has just kicked in, and LEGO is intent to make an impression. And what better way to do so through a set that represents the bold and daring character of the film’s newest brick hero. The LEGO Movie 2 The Rexcelsior! (70839) has just been revealed, and it boasts a pretty cool interior and plenty of play features befitting of a LEGO Movie 2 set.

The Rexcelsior! – Rex Dangervest’s space abode – made its first appearance in the LEGO Movie 2’s official trailer where Emmet gets to know more about Rex and variety of things that he does. When I first saw the Rexcelsior, I immediately had this feeling that this is a most likely candidate to become a LEGO set, if not a direct-to-consumer (D2C) one. Glad to see that LEGO had this in mind all along. The LEGO Movie 2 The Rexcelsior! (70839) comes in at 1,826 pieces and comes with Rex Dangervest and Emmet minifigures. By far, I think this is the first alternate version of Emmet that we get to see among so many that are generously included across several TLM2 sets. This particular remake of Emmet is comically called Stubble Trouble Emmet owing to the fact that he just dotted his face using markers to mimic those cool and manly, facial hairs that Rex has.

The Rexcelsior! (70839) also features several raptor microfigures, 3 of which are a first in any LEGO set. It also includes two nanofigures of Emmet and Rex, and microbuilds of Emmet’s house, a forklift, interaptors, and a dropship. I guess LEGO intends the Rexcelsior (70839) to be a microscaled build similar to the likes of the LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle (71043) and LEGO Marvel Superheroes The SHIELD Helicarrier (76042) though obviously in a much smaller size coming in at around 1,800++ pieces.

The LEGO Movie 2 The Rexcelsior! (70839) is expected to retail for $149.99 or £ 139.99, and will be available to all LEGO fans beginning May 1, 2019. Read on for the set’s full product description below. We don’t have additional images of this set as of the moment except for some close-up ones of Emmet and Rex. I’ll give you an update as more images come in later on. For more info on the current TLM2 sets, visit shop.LEGO.com

Are We To See LEGO Fabuland Figures in Future The LEGO Movie 2 Sets?

Warner Bros Animation has released its latest teaser spot with a very interesting twist. We all know by now that the LEGO Movie 2 is chockfull of cameos and references coming from LEGO’s diverse range of home-grown themes and third-party licensed sets. Pop culture icons (though with some mild, political undertones) such as Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is also rendered in minifigure form. The latest teaser also has a very brief, but significant cameo towards the end, which is loaded with nostalgia and the possibility that we can get to see them again in future TLM2 sets. If you haven’t seen it yet or just missed it during the last 2 or 3 seconds of the teaser, then here’s the video once again that clearly shows a couple of LEGO Fabuland figures as posted in the LEGO Movie 2’s official Twitter account.

AFOLs quickly noticed these LEGO Fabuland figures amongst this team of LEGO minifigures, minidolls and Duplo figures. For those who are new to LEGO, Fabuland is a theme that began in 1979 and lasted for more than a decade until 1989. It is designed for younger children and features animal characters in a town-like setting. Imagine an old-school version of Nintendo’s Animal Crossing and you’ll get the idea.

A screenshot of a LEGO Fabuland figure.
Another LEGO Fabuland figure is seen further back.

As you can see from the above screenshots, the LEGO Movie 2 adds a couple of LEGO Fabuland figures as cameos in the film. We get to see a Fabuland Bulldog in front and a gray Fabuland Dog in the third row. As far as the LEGO Movies are concerned, this is the first time that these LEGO Fabuland figures had their actual screen time since they were only casually mentioned in the first film. This is only speculation at this point, but since LEGO has basically broken away with the tradition of offering minifigs, minidolls, and Duplo characters in separate themes and boxes, can we expect therefore that the next wave of LEGO Movie 2 sets will include actual LEGO Fabuland characters? We saw how LEGO is very much willing to bring back classic minfigs that alludes to the Classic Space theme such as those from Benny’s Space Squad (70841), and the rumored re-emergence of classic LEGO Star Wars sets and minfigures as part of LEGO’s 20th Year Celebration of the LEGO Star Wars theme. So is it possible that we will see the same treatment offered to LEGO Fabuland figures? The possibility is surely exciting.

A new Fox Suit Girl minifigure is also seen in the teaser spot.
It is likely that the Fox Suit Girl minifigure may be a part of a second series of TLM2 CMF.

In addition to these LEGO Fabuland characters, perhaps a second wave of the LEGO Movie 2 Collectible Minifigures is now in the works. This is not far-fetched considering that LEGO did the same with the LEGO Batman Movie CMF Series 1 and Series 2. The idea is spurred by the appearance of a new costumed character, now dubbed as Fox Suit Girl. Again, these are just speculations at this point but it is something really cool if it turns to be true. It is highly unlikely that we’ll get confirmation from this soon, even if LEGO’s presence is very noticeable at the London Toy Fair that is currently happening at Olympia London. In any case, a second series of TLM2 CMF is surely welcomed, and we’ll have plenty more ideas of what characters can be possibly included in the series once we see the LEGO Movie 2 in theaters on February 8.

Here’s How To Get The LEGO Movie 2 Star-Stuck Emmet (30620) Polybag

The LEGO Movie 2 has its share of polybags to go around, with some of them already spotted at Walmart and Target stores. However, there are still some of these polybags that remains to be seen out there, particularly the LEGO Movie 2 Star-Stuck Emmet (30620) polybag. Just to be clear, the Star-Stuck Emmet (30620) polybag is a promotional item included with the upcoming LEGO Movie 2 video game set to be released on February 26 in the US, and March 1 in the UK.

From the looks of it, this is the only way to have the Star-Stuck Emmet (30620) polybag especially if you intend to purchase the LEGO Movie 2 video game. You can also opt to check with eBay, but bear in mind that even as of this posting, this particular polybag is nowhere to be found in the third-party seller platform.

Star-Stuck Emmet (30620) Polybag

If you’re into LEGO video games, then pre-ordering the LEGO Movie 2 video game is a no-brainer. As of now, EB Games in Australia and Amazon UK are offering this upcoming video game title for pre-order on their respective website, with an option of selecting the title’s Limited Edition Minifigure Edition. Though Amazon US also has a similar pre-order listing, it should be noted that the website has no specific mention of the Star-Stuck Emmet (30620) polybag as a free promotional bundled together with the video game title.

Here’s a quick rundown of the LEGO Movie 2 Video Game, including its free promotional. The LEGO Movie 2 video game is available across major video game platforms including Playstation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

LEGO Teams Up With Chevrolet Once Again to Create the First Life-Sized, Custom LEGO Chevy Silverado MOC

The LEGO Group is teaming up once again with Chevrolet to create another brick feat following its life-sized Batmobile from 2017. If you recall two years ago, LEGO partnered with Chevy to render into bricks its larger-than-life concept car of the Batmobile based from the LEGO Batman Movie Batmobile (70905) set. The outcome is simply breathtaking, and this time, LEGO and Chevrolet are set to wow its fans once again with another brick-built creation that celebrates the next hit brickfilm, The LEGO Movie 2. Check out the following video of this life-sized, custom LEGO Chevy Silverado MOC courtesy of Chevrolet.

Taking a total of 18 master builders and 2,000 hours to build, this life-sized custom LEGO Chevy Silverado MOC is made from a total of 334,544 LEGO bricks and pieces. This brightly red, life-sized creation is based on Chevy’s new 2019 Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss – a new feat for LEGO considering that this is very first Chevy to be rendered as such. It may not have the ingenious mobility and engineering complexity as that of the fully drivable and life-sized LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron (42083), but it is still an admirable MOC nonetheless.

The best part of this tie-up between LEGO and Chevrolet is that the LEGO Movie 2 will also feature in the big screen a smaller, brick version of the Silverado High Country, and will make an appearance in one of its scenes. Will this eventually be translated to an official LEGO set? Well, we can only speculate as of this moment. Read on for the complete press release of this life-sized, custom LEGO Chevy Silverado MOC.

DETROIT — Chevrolet and students from the Oxford Community School’s FIRST LEGO® League and Detroit’s Ralph Waldo Emerson Elementary’s A World in Motion Program unveiled the first-ever full-size LEGO® Silverado today at the North American International Auto Show just ahead of the show opening to the public. The model is an exact life-size replica of the all-new 2019 Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss, and it is the first full-size Chevy vehicle built entirely of LEGO bricks.

The LEGO Silverado continues the partnership between Chevy and Warner Bros. Pictures that began in 2017 with “The LEGO Batman Movie” and the LEGO Batmobile from Chevy. This partnership builds on the Silverado marketing efforts that launched earlier this month.

A custom mini-build of the Silverado High Country will make an appearance in the new big-screen animated adventure “The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part” when it debuts in theaters on Feb. 8. In this fun and action-packed sequel, the heroes of “The LEGO Movie” reunite to save their beloved city from a new threat: LEGO DUPLO® invaders from space.

“Chevrolet is once again thrilled to be working with Warner Bros. to integrate the brand and one of our most iconic products – Silverado – into ‘The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part,’” said Sandor Piszar, director of Chevrolet Truck marketing. “The themes of determination and teamwork in the new movie align perfectly with our Chevy brand values and we are sure that the all-new Silverado has the features, technologies and strength that would help Emmet, Lucy and their friends as they take on exciting new challenges.”

Eighteen specially trained LEGO Master Builders spent more than 2,000 hours hand-selecting and placing each of the 334,544 pieces on the red LEGO® Silverado, which has unique working lights and graphic details.

To learn more about the LEGO® Silverado, please visit Chevrolet.com.

LEGO® Silverado Fast Facts:

  • The LEGO® Silverado model is 72 inches (6 feet) high, 240 inches (20 feet) long and 96 inches (8 feet) wide.
  • Total weight: 3,307 pounds.
  • Total number of LEGO bricks used to build the LEGO® Silverado: 334,544. Each piece was hand-selected and placed by a specially trained builder.
  • Most common LEGO brick used: red 2×8 stud brick.
  • The LEGO® Silverado took 18 builders more than 2,000 hours to assemble.
  • The LEGO® Silverado was designed and assembled by LEGO Master Builders in the LEGO Group’s Model Shop in Enfield, Connecticut.
